The Idea of Being Left Alone

We all tend to be in company of people we love and care about – our friends and family. For in their company we feel safe and happy, and a happy human being is a much better human being. And that is probably the idea of life – to harbour love and kindness and to spread comfort and joy.

Having stated the plausible purpose of life and the desire to be in the company of people we love and care about in a harmonious manner, it is the need of the hour to ruminate on the idea of being left alone. I say ‘being left alone’ because it is fundamentally different from ‘being alone’. While the former demands, the latter just accepts. The very foundation of ‘being left alone’ is based on the voluntary need of personal space rather than an unhealthy state of being, which our loved ones usually suspect. And while the idea of being judged by our loved ones is acceptable to a certain degree, the idea of subtle understanding by the same people in matters relating to personal space is still missing.

When the affairs of life transforms into a state of pandemonium, the intention to sit alone and grasp the current state of things in order to prepare for the battle ahead is justified and self-advocated. We can empathize to a certain extent, but we can’t truly understand a person’s current state of being. So the next time one of your loved ones desires to spend some time alone, respect his/her feelings. A matter resolved in solitude of one’s being gives way to acceptance, and a further chance at happiness. And a happy human being is a much better human being.

Evaluate. Empathize. Evolve.

Science vs Technology

If we know the science; if we know what is happening, why is it happening, how it is happening, we might not need technology anymore to rectify it. I think the need of the hour is to develop an understanding; be aware and be informed. We need to remember technology is never a solution, we are the problem.

Epigram 3×3

Poetic :
  • Believe my truth for I am a man
    And why I lie? Because I can!
  • Love me or leave me, I don’t care
    Break my trust? Don’t even dare.
  • My thoughts are few
    With nothing new
    Not called to be a writer indeed
    I already knew
Non Poetic :
  • The worst thing about being a writer is being a writer itself.
  • If you want to succeed make sure others don’t.
  • The only thing worse than being forgotten is being remembered, by your enemies.
