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.
TL;DR:Don’t put your life on hold waiting for closure on something you’re struggling with. Many of life’s most difficult situations don’t have reasonable explanations.
When you grow up, once you are an adult, you realize that ‘closure’ is a myth, fed by the inherent narrative fallacy of the brain.
Closure, especially from another person is even more useless because of all the other biases of the human brain.You are never likely to get the real truth.
Instead you will be fed with the socially acceptable truths and tropes that have been floating around and have been accepted as ‘good enough’ substitutes .
Worse yet, you will be fed an outright lie which was justified because the other person themselves did not know the reason for their own actions.
Yes, the shocking observation is that humans are barely aware of their own actions and reactions, much less about the underlying reasons and biases.
I googled what I was about to write, and I found that many others had come to the same conclusion independently.
I did not read any of their articles, because then it would influence my ideas(sorry, I cannot stop cryptoamnesia)
Its funny how we are all slowly waking up, and in the end we die.
You got what you deserve â€¦ you deserve each other.
I once confessed to a friend that I was afraid of the sentence ‘You get what you deserve’ because if I was ever unhappy or unsatisfied with what I had, then it was still what I deserved.
But what she said changed my mind.
She believed that ‘Getting what you deserve’ was very reassuring, because she always got the best in life, and it only meant that the universe was doing right by her.
Our viewpoints illustrated our general thought patterns in life… of my casual pessimism and her burgeoning optimism.
Even now, my fear has not gone away, but I’ve learnt to become a ‘cautious optimist’.
Looking back at life, even though my fear lingers in the periphery of the mind, I couldn’t be happier with what I got and what I have right now.
I’ll be forever grateful for that life lesson learnt.

Body Dysmorphia is so rampant, that it is no longer considered abnormal anymore.
Every girl needs her own Devdas to validate her femininity.
Only when she becomes a woman, her criteria for that validation changes.
It’s time to grow.
It’s time to shed old husks
It’s time to say good bye.
It’s fun to fight your inner demons.
It’s scary , because you’re always on the brink of defeat, and to win all you must do is overcome yourself and the world.
There might be setbacks or defeats, but you always get another chance.
It’s a game.
You’re an actor and it’s all make believe.
It’s an unrelenting nightmare and all you’ve got to do is wake up.
So you try.
The battle ground is within and without.
The scars too.
Just remember… You’re locked in a parasitic-symbiotic relationship.
You’re demons feed on you as you feed off them.
But remember. Every moment you’re struggling, you’re still winning.
It is only when you accept defeat that you are truly defeated.
And Whatever the result, you’re the victor and you’re the spoils.
And this is the most alive you’ll ever be.
Simply meditate on this line of thought the next time you feel the drum beat in your chest.
It comes as no revelation that what I am is not because the standards I have set for myself, but because of what standards I think society has set for me.
I don’t smoke or do drugs, and keep myself restrained in general solely based on this firm illusion.
Firm illusion: just another oxymoron, another contradicting juxtaposition ideas that the mind has among a million others to justify its actions.
In science fiction an android would blow up due to all the logical paradoxes that an average mind has.
This is why we are still don’t have AI that is truly capable of being human.
