Is life actually complicated or do we make it difficult to live?

Difficulties, complications or problems come in our life to test us, to make us more stronger. But our mindset and what we are doing equally matter a lot.

Many times, we do something just to get recognition, appreciation or reward. On the other hand, if we care about somebody/something in our life, we become unexpected. These all are the part of life.

There are few things people do unnecessarily, just do…

Such as:-

* Pretend to be rich

* Try to be like others

* Pretend to be too good

Yes, we all do any of this at least once or many times in our life.

These all seem okay to do but in depth, they kill us slowly because we often lose ourselves behind such fake exhibit of our appearance, lifestyle or traits.

Just take a moment & think about your actions again.

Is this genuinely you, or just an attempt to impress others?

Thank you

  1. I think on my action all the time, usually to blame myself, I never did look to others for inspiration or standards anyway.

    The blame usually is about something I could do as a younger man, but in my age, I fail to accomplish.

    I used to work for very long hours, some time for several days without sleep. Before parkour hit the mainstream, I used to jump and run and skid, just to go from one place to another. I used to look at the world as a rival, that I had to beat down, and usually did.

    My life is complicated because I have the heart and dreams of a young man, while I have to contend with the body and limitations of a thousand years old one.

    My life is complicated because of the fact of the presence of time.

  2. I think everyone struggles with the above at some point of his/her life. The first comes from a need to impress for sure, but the second (to be like others) and the third (pretending to be too good) comes from the need to fit in, because people are often not kind to those who are not like them. We can’t always behave like how we really feel eg. B*tch slapping an annoying colleague instead of being cordial but as long as the chosen behaviour serves a purpose we are fine. The first one, pretending to be rich is a loud “No” though; that’s too toxic.
