We all live our individual life, have our individual goals, separate journeys, distinct destinations, unique taste and are rushing towards an alone death. When it’s time to do something that I have to do, it must be done by me. No one can stand up and do it for me. No one can eat the food I need for my body and donate the energy to my body cells. No one can watch a movie and lend the enjoyment to me. No one can live his life and die my death. Sometimes some things need to be done individually.
However along our journey towards our distinct destination, we make friends. The whole point of making friends is to enlighten the distance to be covered. But we get stuck in a constant habit of comparisons, constantly counting the things we have and that others have. Constantly envy others successes and enjoy others weaknesses.
It hurts when we lack the thing we want, when we can’t find the pill that would bring happiness and it hurts even more when we do not know what we actually want, what would bring happiness to us. In chaos, when we look at others and the things that bring happiness to them, we start yearning for the same thing for us. It’s like a patient of cardiac disorder yearning for the pills used for the treatment of tuberculosis. We get jealous for ones who have discovered their happiness brining pills and get sad for us for not having the same thing.
The actual focus which should be onto finding our own destination which at times gets blurred under the reflections of other’s milestones. We can easily go astray if we do not stop for a moment, take a deep breath and have a look around. Put out our own personal instructional manual from deep inside the heart, get the map cleared and locate ourselves onto the journey we set for us. Aspirations are the street lights that illuminate the patches to the road that would take us to the doorstep of our dream destination, parallel roads however beautiful they see, will never be as delightful, as soothing and entertaining as our own original destined place.
You should not compare yourselves with others, you don’t know what their journey is about.
One should never let the aspiration get buried under the burden of depression. Aspirations are there to enlighten the burden of darkened moments inside heart.
