Have you ever wondered that every thing that has been taught to us as kids were nothing but lies?
Being polite will not earn you friends but only ensure that you will be used and treated like a doormat? Getting good grades alone will not guarantee a perfect life? Being kind to strangers won’t make you stronger but more vulnerable for them to cheat you? Love is not exactly something pure, forgiving and everlasting but to there is cheating and manipulation involved? And most of all, growing up doesn’t means your life gets better, but its the other way around?
Also, have any one noticed that as we become parents, we teach our kids the same thing, feed them the same lies? It’s not because we didn’t realize the lie, it’s because we still have hope. Hope that even in this chaos and calamities, there is still beauty in the world. Being polite might earn the smile that they didn’t expect? getting good grades may not give you perfect life, but it might give you opportunities to create your own perfect life? Being kind to a stranger might just make their whole day? Love is not worth it if it isn’t earned? Life is not about “getting” better but “making” it better?
In my opinion, this is what makes humanity the most beautiful creation of God: Even if we can see only wars and deceit and dishonesty and hate all around us, we never stop having hope, hope that this world can be a beautiful place too, if you know where to look and if you know what to change.
Here is to those who who still believe the world is a beautiful place. I am right there with you.
The most beautiful things in this world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with heart – Helen Keller.
