Aggression. Wildness. Control. Reins.
It’s all related to one another. We all want to have control over our lives, over the things that makes us happy, over our relationships, over how others make us feel. We want the reins of peace in our own hands. Always.
Most of our lives we wander in search of the reins but seldom find. We invest(read: waste) time for those reins. We give our sweat but fail. We may not accept but we are not always in control of our lives.
Why? Because there are many other factors that affect our lives. There’s job. There’re other independent thinking individuals. There’s ambition. There’s desire to reach those ambitions. As we can’t control those, not even for a single day, we think we can never control our lives.
There’s a difference, though. I will feel my life is not in my control when I am doing things I care less about. Why? Because at the moment, I am not interested in it. I say so because if I was interested, it would have been in my control. As I have no interest, I don’t understand it, it eludes me. It confuses me. It makes me feel inferior. It makes me feel recessive.
I want the control back. I want to hold the reins. But how? By developing interest, by showing eagerness, by trying to understand, I can gain control slowly. This is not rocket science. This is a simple art of understanding.
We don’t have to make things difficult. We have to find the easiest of solutions. It’s there either inside or outside of us. We just have to tune to it & a smile will find its way back home on your lips.
I crave for my smiles. But then my smiles are dependent on yours. So, being selfish, I have to make you smile, to smile myself.
P.S.: Today’s song pick is My song knows what you did in the dark of Fallout boy 🙂 Three cheers for holding our life’s reins. Happy weekend!
