Hey Gratisouls!! How have you been? I want to ask you a quick question… has there been a point in your life where you tried to control things/situations/people so that you could have everything exactly as you planned? And did everything actually happened as you envisioned it? If yes, that’s great but mostly it doesn’t happen because you know why? Life is unpredictable and it has its own way of surprising us and preparing us for situations which we thought we couldn’t bear. That’s how beautiful life is, and we should embrace all the uncertainties.
We, humans, try to control everything around us, try to control our emotions, our future, our thoughts, and situations. But it doesn’t actually work like that. The more we try to control, the more it slips away from us. And that’s what leads to unnecessary disappointments, mood swings, and demotivation.
IF LIFE ITSELF IS UNCERTAIN, HOW CAN YOU CONTROL IT?
You don’t know what can happen with you the next minute. You cannot be prepared for everything good or bad that life throws at you. All you can do is acknowledge it, learn how to proceed further and grow with it. That’s all you can do. Nothing else. No matter how big a control freak you are.
WHERE THE ACTUAL PROBLEM BEGINS?
What’s the problem?
We envision a certain kind of future and if it doesn’t happen, we feel that everything is going wrong, we curse ourselves for it, we hate our life and as a result, we ruin our present which we could have easily enjoyed by not thinking about our future at the first place.
Is it wrong to envision your future?
No, it is not. In fact, one should envision a life they want to live and work hard for it. What’s wrong is controlling situations, thoughts, and life so that you can have a secure future. That’s where we are wrong. We can’t control everything, only God can.
So why do we live in the future?
Because that gives us hope that things can work out for good and if it does not, it can backfire on us by ruining our present moment. We are in a constant state of anxiety, trying to make it, that we don’t realize we are actually ruining our present, so how can we get a perfect future?
What’s the solution?
The only solution is not controlling everything and let life happen! Life has its own sweet way of surprising us at our lowest and least expected moments. JUST BREATHE, CHILL, HUSTLE HARD AND LIVE YOUR LIFE.
LIFE IS SIMPLE, BUT WE TEND TO MAKE IT COMPLICATED.
So, let’s not become control freaks and just enjoy this beautiful experience called LIFE.
LIFE IS PRECIOUS, SO MAKE IT WORTH IT.
