Lately, I’ve been thinking if standards that are just there how are they just there? I mean someone must have made them and as they are made then we can made ours too, right?
Success & Failure
For instance, the success or failure, are two standards that are measured in many ways; like grades for example. It’s true that having a high grade can show how good you are collecting information, but it has absolutely nothing to do with your success, or creativity. I mean having high grades can show that you are good in understanding your lessons and studying but it’s not necessary an indication of a success in practical life and I think that’s a common knowledge that most of us are told or know by first hand experience. So, the concept of success and failure comes in many other ways like your personal life too. I mean not because you were never in a relationship before, then you can’t be in one. Maybe you are one who appreciate it so much and really committed that you are just waiting for the right person. Same for your practical life. Not because you are just photocopying papers in an office then you can’t do the higher jobs. Who knows? Maybe your boss doesn’t know how to use the photocopier. 😀
My point is…
We are different, we are really good in different standards that not all will understand, just like many standards in our society that never make sense to us, but a big deal for others. Therefore, somehow we made our own standards as we move on in this life. As long as we meet them, then we are fortunate! We are the ones who would show people how important are our standards. Maybe they will never understand but they might appreciate it. As we do appreciate theirs.
Life might be easier. More thoughtful and hopeful, with less high standards that can be so high and crushing for some people. Praise the real you in you, then maybe you can find the peace, success and happiness you were searching for.
