7 Lies by which society misguides you !!

Society lies

“Society has become so fake that, the truth actually bothers people” Unknown     Image by jacqueline macou from Pixabay

It’s 4.5 minute read.

Why why all succumb to the society, having its own views on everything & anything under the the Sun ?

Society never tires you with its time tested comments ,since you are addicted to the concept of society’s benchmarks,right from your birth to till the day you die.

In other words society wants you to play by its rule book.

Do you remember the famous personality Joseph Goebbels and his quote…

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”

By now I know that You are wondering which society I am talking about ? And where is that society located ?

My friend,this society is nothing but your so called

  • Ourselves
  • well-wishers (including your parents,sorry if I am brutal),
  • uncles,aunties
  • your neighbors
  • your teachers
  • your friends
  • your community
  • your daily news papers,TVs,movies
  • Regular advertisements
  • Your favorite movie stars
  • Your social media
  • Your political discussions,tastes and narratives

you name it….you have it!

Society in other word is a set  of people around you all the time, trying to manipulate you to their advantage.

1.Unconditional Love exists

A rubbish,and a lie uttered time immemorial.To be frank ,there is no such thing in the relationships.

Women marry men hoping they will change. Men marry women hoping they will not. So each is inevitably disappointed. Albert Eisenstein

Our love is directly proportional to how our partners,relatives,friends etc make us feel.

Simply put…. any body gets hurt if their expectation is not fulfilled.This is human nature and there is no escape from it.

Don’t hurt yourself by dreaming/expecting ‘unconditional Love’. Also you can never give unconditional love.Mark my statement.

2.Marriages are made in Heaven

Hmm…If it is so….just answer me why there are so many divorces ?

Marriage is like a cage; one sees the birds outside desperate to get in, and those inside equally desperate to get out. Michel de Montaigne

Is it true,some say marriage is a life long torture !

Marriage: A legal or religious ceremony by which two persons of the opposite sex solemnly agree to harass and spy on each other for ninety-nine years, or until death do them join. Edbert Hubbard

Wife & Husband-why can’t they be best friends for life ?

3.Your life is a meaningful minimum journey to be enjoyed to the maximum

Another thrash. And in spite, all the modern Gurus encourage us to lead a meaningful life.( self defeating )

What made Gautama Buddha get enlightenment ? It’s because of human suffering.Do we have similar God’s grace to get enlightened ?

Life is full of misery, and you are intelligent enough to accept that it’s painful to lead the life and death is the only permanent solution.Since we can’t die….at least let us accept the truth.

Happiness in your life is only for the time being that too in bits, and rest of the times you are busy whining.

“It’s a misery to be born,a pain to live,a trouble to die” St.Bernard of Clairvaux

Still, temporary happiness can come from minor things like,you playing with toys in your childhood, your first Kiss,sex now & then,massage,hot bath, friendship,a short travel,one night stand,A champagne,Receiving a lovely gift or a comforting hug etc.etc.. Drugs can take you to another level.

4.It’s better if you know your life partner before your marriage

Really?………another Utter lie.

No partner in love relationship..should feel that he has to give up an essential part of himself to make it viable May Sarton

Each individual is unique.Only sustained friendship in the form of total understanding between the life partners endures the marriage.

Life partners too expect personal space though they know each other so long !

Even if you knew your partner before,it’s not a guarantee for a successful marriage.

When you can’t understand the people, though you spend your whole life with them,(example parents vs children,children vs parents,siblings vs siblings),then why should you give importance to knowing your partner before?.

Understanding becomes easier after the marriage once you both know your limitations and your strengths mutually over the time.

5.Money won’t make you happy

Ha ha ….Without money you cease to exist.

My dear friend, money is everything.It brings you, both happiness and pleasure.

“Lack of money is the root of all evil”      George Bernard Shah

We work / study for what ? is this not to earn money and live happily ?

People with more money are satisfied with their life style and are in a position to help others too.

He who marries for love without money has GOOD NIGHTS & SORRY DAYS   unknown

6. Boys’ won’t cry

Virtually a child conditioning !!

“People cry not because they are weak,because they’ve been too strong for a long time” unknown

Boys too have feelings ,emotions, excitements and stages of sadness.

Otherwise why will Dr.Sivan,ISRO( The Indian Space Research Organisation ) chairman became teary eyed,when the Chandrayan mission was not successful ?There are many famous men like Andre Agassi and Obama too had teary eyes.

7.Blood is thicker than water

Unfortunately blood relatives are not interested in you,since they are struggling with their own problems and you have to fend yourself.

you can’t blame them.

‘Blood is always thicker than water,but some family members at times are on blood thinners’ unknown

Many times friends come to your rescue.The understanding with the friends anytime better than the blood relatives.

Ego and Jealousy play spoilsport in blood relationships.Don’t play victim card here !!

What is unconditional love?

Is there someone you love unconditionally?
Why do you love the person you love?
Is there something like unconditional love?
Do you subscribe to the idea of unconditional love?
Tell me what you think about unconditional love?
Is it realistic?
Is it possible?
Can we actually love somebody who is unfriendly to us?
Can we love someone who hurts us?
When should someone love unconditionally?

#love, #questions-to-ponder-on, #unconditional-love

I will always love you

My love for you will never die;
Even if you don’t love me,
I will continue to love you;
I have unconditional love for you;
I will love you in good
And in bad times;
I will always love you.

These words have been pronounced many times by different people in different places. These are words. What of action? What of the high number of failed marriages?

Unconditional love – a possibility or fiction?

How possible and easy is it to love unconditionally? We often hear about unconditional love; and are asked to love unconditionally in marriage. Is this possible? Is it realistic? Can anyone truly love unconditionally?

Can we love someone who is hurting us or who is working against our interest?

You can see why I ask whether unconditional love is a possibility or fiction. Was Jesus Christ’s love for humanity unconditional? Does God love us unconditionally? When we sin or commit crimes does God still love us?

How possible and realistic is it to love someone unconditionally? In the context of marriage or boy/girlfriend relationship would you love unconditionally?

Why would you or would you not encourage unconditional love?

These are worthwhile questions to ponder on; and sharing our views on them can be enlightening. Let me end this post with this poem which should further tickle your mind on the subject:

How do you expect me to love you?

How do you expect me to love you

When you are hurting me?
How do you expect me to love you

If you are working against my interest?
How do you expect me to love you

If what you are doing to me is killing me?
How do you expect me to love you

If you have destroyed my reason for joy?

How do you expect me to love a neighbor

Who is making life hard for me?

I want to love,

But it’s hard to love unconditionally.

Unconditional love

Have I told you I love you?
If I haven’t, I say so now;
And don’t be surprised that I say I love you;
I don’t have to know you before I love you;
I don’t need to have met you before I love you;
I don’t need to expect to ever meet you before I love you;
You don’t need to be my spouse before I love you;
You don’t need to my child or parent before I love you;
You don’t need to be my boy/girlfriend before I love you;
You don’t need to come from my country before I love you;
You don’t need to be of my skin color before I love you;
I love you; that is all.
I love you as Jesus says I must love you;
If we never meet, I love you;
If you don’t love me, I love you.
Whether you like it or not, I love you;
Even if you hurt me, I love you;
My love for you is unconditional.
Nothing can stop me from loving you;
No one can stop me from loving you;
You cannot stop me from loving you;
Your spouse, parent or child cannot stop me from loving you;
I love you; and I love you;
And will always love you.
