Living a compromise free life is next to impossible.
To find happiness, you need to align your compromises with ‘your‘ choices in your life, and as far as possible, avoid getting shackled to compromises resulting from actions, decisions and promises to and of ‘non-significant’ others.
And to multiply your happiness with righteous justification, rename your compromises to something more heroic… perhaps call them sacrifices!
‘So what you’re suggesting in essence,’ he said,
‘Is simply pretending we’re single instead?
You want me to loiter, devoted to you –
But never acknowledge we’re better as two?
‘You want me to linger,’ he said with a sigh,
‘While you’re on the lookout for some other guy?
You want me to offer my hope and my heart –
While constantly acting as though we’re apart?
‘You want me to simply submit and agree?
To hope for the day when you’ll settle for me?
To wait while you actively push me away?’
‘Precisely,’ she answered.
He whispered, ‘… okay.’
What is the point of fighting when the ones you fight for:
- Didn’t ask for it?
- Didn’t need it?
- Hate you for it, and see you becoming the enemy?
Fight with intent, and a clear vision of the result.
Makeshift Life Syndrome: Living, only half-satisfied by the so called current and temporary compromises and measures, while seeking, dreaming and hungering of a more permanent one.
Closely related to the ‘Life is elsewhere’ syndrome, which occurs due to either lack of maturity or lack of life experience, or even inherent laziness, as opposed to ‘Makeshift Living’ syndrome which comes later in life, and causes more of frustration, discontentment and a constant fog of melancholy.
Video game idea:
Genre: Meme simulation and God simulation.
Subcategory: Driving simulation.
In ‘Jesus takes the wheel’ , you play the character of Jesus, an innocent cabdriver whose cab has been hijacked by a sadistic psychotic evil demonically possessed criminal who is hell bent on killing pedestrians and people in other vehicles.
Your job in the game is to imagine Jesus taking the wheel and try to save all innocent bystanders.
Accumulate Jesus Points! (JP)
The more JP you have the more miracles you can perform like healing the accident victims(if you were not able to save them initially), levitate them away from the murderesly rampaging car and many more.
When you accumulate enough JP , the game can be ended if you take the right decision.
For a study published in 2013, a team led by Robert Wilson at the Rush University Medical Center in Chicago enrolled three hundred elderly people and tested their thinking and memory skills each year. The participants were also asked about how often they read, wrote, and engaged in other cognitively demanding activities, not just currently, but in childhood and middle age. Following each participant’s death, their brain was examined for evidence of dementia. It was discovered that, after taking into account the physical effects of dementia on their brains, the subjects who made a lifelong habit of a lot of reading and writing slowed their rate of mental decline by a third compared to those who did only an average amount of those things.
On the other hand, people who rarely read or wrote experienced a decline that was a staggering 48 percent faster compared to the average participants.
It’s better to not know what makes you great, for knowing it makes your full if shit.
Do not profess to being great. It often makes you ungreatful.
