The two ways of life !!

with 6 comments


I believe there are two ways to live the life. Rather, I should say, I have convinced myself that there are only two ways to live a life. One way is to follow the wise advices of people, like your parents, your well-wishers who have seen it through in their life. The other way is to not listen to them, make mistakes of your own, and then realise the importance of those words that were rendered at you earlier in your life to which u never bothered to heed.

I believe eventually everybody gets to learn this. That, whatever you choose, if u are yearning for a success, you need to follow those golden words sometime or other. The interesting part is when you choose the second option in your life, you are anyway gonna end up joining the roads of people who have chosen the first path. But what makes you different and advantageous is that, you have learned it all by yourself and convinced yourself of the things that you have become.

I believe, I chose the second option a couple of years ago, and slowly planning to join the road I would have been into if I had not made the choice. So coincidental that I was recently reminded of this

“You dont change when you are shown a better option. You only change when you dont have any other option.”

But I have learnt a lot. Things that can’t be expressed through words and can only be understood. And then the vicious circle continues. You may then understand why you were being advised on the first place and how much people had cared about you.

PS : You know you are a topcoder when you get so philosophical after losing your rating !!! ( 😛 )
