This post is about the reasons why one should not take life seriously.
I could say it’s because everything seems so meaningless when you think from the perspective of the infinite universe. But no, I won’t use that logic because ultimately, the world that we really interact with is the one we understand and thus, anything that happens here affects us, directly or indirectly.
But, what I will say is that look around you and question yourself how that thing came to be. The answer is that there is no answer. Everything is very random. Every incident in your life is a result of a roll of dice. I am born in India where I have to constantly fight against the extreme backward minds of the society, against millions of students to get the privilege of studying in a good enough institution, against my own parents whose ninety percent of the day-to-day life does not make any sense to me while, on the other hand, there are some Scandinavian countries where there is extreme value to humanity as proven by a successful free basic income scheme, health care schemes and a near perfect happiness rate. I didn’t ask to be born in my country. So, why should I take my life so seriously?
Actually, even though that might be a correct perspective, it’s a very shitty one because it might make you see me as someone who does not value life just because one is facing a bunch of tough challenges. But, in fact, that’s not how I feel at all, my very point being, there is no use fretting over stuff like that. I cannot go on thinking that my life is so bad just because of the random circumstances. I have to just accept it all and move the fuck on. There are a million things in my head and I really could use taking some load off.
Why care about earning so much when I need only one-tenth of it to have a well enough life? Why argue with people when I know all that’s gonna happen is that they are gonna hate me in the end even though I know I was absolutely right? Why build big dreams when I am just fine with the happy little moments of life? Why build so many human relationships when dogs are simply way better? Who do more of anything? Why complicate my life? Why fret over break-ups?
Build a story of your life but make it funny. Look at old people. They are the funniest because they are wise and have understood that lives are wasted on the miserable.
