Coping with life
6 months ago · · coping
Coping with life is perceived to be something unachievable by many, something that most chase after, as well as fame and achievements.
But how would it be possible to chase after many and be able to, at the same time manage to achieve all of those successfully and smoothly? That is practically impossible.
We tend to overlook our situationship at times and neglect matters at hand. Us, as humans that constantly seek perfection in everything we do, people that would never be satisfied with where we are at, how is it possible for us to attain that level of perfection?
In a matter of fact, put it in a way, we actually overestimate ourselves. That is what leads to our competitive nature, what leads to our constant suffocation as well as the rising numbers of emotional and depressed teenagers. To a certain extent, of course, we could blame it on the society, the ideals that are expected to be met. But largely, this is all up to us. Whether we channel such pressure into something that would aid us, or to be something that would push ourselves pass our limits. Even if so, as we push ourselves pass our limits, we then begin to be used to that fact, that conception of us having to be "constantly on the grind".
And this is why, the need of being satisfied with our situationship is crucial. Definitely, that does not mean or imply settling for the least, or to barely strive for anything. But that merely means settling for the middle, that one can minimally achieve. When we are comfortable with that fact, that is when we can easily overcome instead of be overcome.
