Insecurity is a part of life. The usual cause why people feel insecure is because of not knowing what would happen to them the next day, next second – their future. But, suppose one knew what would be happening with him/her, then would that person allow that to happen, especially if that’s something bad.
Wait! Let’s try to imagine, shall we? Simple things like our behaviour with others, the actions that we would possibly do…will all change. Someone has told that our actions today will have an impact on the results following the action, so everyone will start controlling/restricting their actions. The reason is quite simple, because everyone wants to be the best – that’s when competition begins. And slowly as things go by a fear gets induced in us – fear of being the average. We are the authors of our book(life) and the best part is actually not knowing what could possibly happen in our future. What I’ve noticed is that people exist but have forgotten to live their life. It could be because of a lot of reasons as far as my understanding of the subject is that simple life is not something many fancy about rather it actually surprises me when I see some, who yearn for a stereotyped life.
Nevertheless I frankly admit that many times, in my life being aged just 17 even I’ve felt insecure over small things like, not being rich, not being able to be the best at a few things, not having a girlfriend and the list goes on…
Simple things like, when I see another student who is a better academic performer than me, I feel insecure wondering if I’m up to any good at all. I guess that is quite natural for anyone to feel like that, but that is when I make it a point to remind myself that even I’m special and can do things that he/she probably can’t even imagine.
But the good thing about all of it is that I’ve learnt something every time I’ve felt insecure and low, that something which has given me hope and courage to lift my head and face what is bothering me. You know, there’s always a first for everything.
I guess I’m just old enough to realized that sometimes life throws up difficult situations and one should stand up to that (giving up life and giving up in life would be the most stupid thing if you would ask me).
Its just that once we learn seeing the beauty in everything there would be endless happiness, not to forget your cheeks going up. An optimist would probably say that life gives more than it can take and a pessimist would say that life takes more than what it can give. So ultimately IT IS YOU who has to decide what to do and how to see your life and think about living it or maybe just existing as a part of human species and missing out simple, joyous things/actions.
