Over last few years, I saw there were a phenomenon rise in the talks about self love, follow your passion, live your dreams etc.
One way it is true that we should not think about any kind of show off in order to impress others. Rather we have to be real, accept our reality and live it true.
Concept of self love holds even valid when you have actually selfish people around and that’s when others advice you to think about your own life too, live it your own as the people around are selfish.
So next time when you come across people who talks about self love or motivate others to be selfish then understand that there are two possibilities either they are inherited with it I mean since their childhood they were kind of selfish or they learnt it because of their surrounding.
I am me also I am you talks about the second type of people. In fact, we are all ourselves first ( I am talking about our own individuality) also we are our parents (of course, we get our body through our parents, so they exists in us), also we are our friends, siblings, spouse, kids, neighbors, teachers, religion that we follow, education that we get, people we met, place we live and everything else which were part of our life. Confused ?
Let me explain, I am me also I am my parents (I am inherited from them) then everything else we are spending time with.
Our people and our environment has the ability to impact our emotion. I mean when we live with the right people, we will be happy, we will respond to others positively and others can make it very clearly that we are happy.
But when we are with wrong people we are sad, we talk depressed, we struggle to balance our own existence, though we might try to talk about self love but others can understand it very easily that we are broken inside and we are sad.
Now, why where you happy or sad ? Because of the people you live. Calculation is very simple : I will be happy, if the people I live with love me and cares my happiness and same is with them too, they will be happy when I will love them and care for their happiness.
I see people often go to temples, mosque, churches and pray to god for a happy life. They bow down in front of an unknown god but never bow down to their own people.
Understand it, when you fell sick, you pray to god to take care of you, but who take you to the hospital ? Your own people. Who gave you medication ? The doctor. God never came in the way you worshipped and helped you.
Rather, you always got help from someone and that’s how you are still alive or you are living your life happily. Worship god, but learn who is god in your life too. You worshipped god, but someone took care of every bit of your happiness. Respect them too, know who they are.
Remember, we can not live alone, we need people to live our life, to share our love, to share our energies, to share their energies. So choose carefully.
If you see someone is happy, understand the choices they made in their life : the place they live, the job they do, the people they have in their life, the books they choose to learn from, the movies they choose to learn from.
And when you see someone is sad or depressed, understand the choices they made in their life : the people they live with, the job they choose for themselves, the place they decided to live in, the books and movies they choose to practice in life.
Everything – I am living with, make me, I am not just an individual entity rather I am me also I am you, because you are impacting my emotions and others can see me as the way I am also the way you create me.
