Often times, we are advised to tread well— live a life that society loves and permits and do away with what you might personally love. We have allowed society to set some standards and rules for us that makes us even miserable by abiding by them.
The thirst to get married is so real and exasperating especially in a society where family and friends would literally poke their noses in your situation and allow you no air to breathe.
If you have the same ideals in life like me, you probably won’t give a rat ass to any of the undue pressure people mount on people when they are nearing their marital age or beyond it.
I like to think of myself as loyal but not blind, interesting but not clueless, loving but not witless, persistent but not obtuse.
And even though I am liberal, I’ve never made conservatism a taboo.
Changing has never been my problem, finding a reason to institute a change is mostly the difficult bit. I like to be convinced but a lot of people can’t push for it.
It may take a lot of energy to define a path with me but once on it, nothing can lead me astray. Such is the degree of loyalty which some confuse for rigidness.
I may have spent 4 years in a college studying a subject I later realised had no position in my future interest, but I wouldn’t dare trade my experience for anything else.
I can make good arguments as to why there is the need to love but I have never succeeded in convincing anyone as to why they should not let love go. There has never been a need for it though, because they eventually figure it out—mostly when it’s too late and their faces are full of regrets.
Though I do not consider philosophy as an academic discipline worth spending my time and money on formally, I spend the greatest part of my life studying this. And since money and time cannot be separated, a chunk of my money therefore goes in there too.
My biggest mistake in life is the automatic application of reason to everything—forgetting that, certain structures stay outside the boundaries of reason. I don’t think I need to mention women and love as the common examples.
