Our existence comprises of choices that we make. From drinking milk to watching your favourite movie, from buying a blue shirt instead of a pink shirt to adding an extra spoon of sugar in your tea - you take a plethora of decisions, make choices, and bear the consequences.
Despite our parents making most of our decisions for our better and brighter future when we’re very young, we start learning how to choose between the options placed strategically in front of us and make decisions.
I, for one, decided to pursue my graduation in Design, but after 6 months of attending college lectures, and giving interviews for extracurricular societies, I began to wonder if I had made the right choice. For, my father wanted me to become a Doctor but rebel in me chose Design.
The self doubt started to bug me, resulting in fluctuating sleep patterns and subsequent decline in diet. The never-ending scope of ‘what-ifs’ flooded me.
It was later that I realized that the decision I made for myself was right all along. I was afraid that I will end up blaming myself for failing. If it wasn’t the right choice, it would have been for reasons beyond my control. We don’t like giving up that control.
Sometimes, we make bad choices and that’s part of being human. When I flip through my diary, instead of being ashamed of who I was or what I’ve done, I want to be proud of myself and my choices.I want to be happy with what I wore, what I said, what I read, and what I did. And this is possible if I think before I make choices in the present.
DNA ⚛️ дело не в молодости, задоре или образовании.. скорее в том, что каждое новое поколение уже получило весь наш опыт и прибавило свой. Дело не в том, что мы прочли книги и судьбы родителей такими, какими они их представили для нас, а в том , что мы получили опыт своего рода и применили его неосознанно. Дети - как огромные наскальные письмена, - ты силишься научить их жить, не способен прочесть, а они от рождения учли все твои ошибки.. и им их исправлять. @marysenka04#innasandal 📷 #welcometomylens
