Choosing a profession is not an easy thing. You will be stuck in that field for the rest of your life, not to mention the fact that you will have to rely on it to pay your bills. As kids, we have a lot of ideas about how life is supposed to be. We think that all of us will end up in professions we love. But there aren’t many people in the world who can claim to enjoy the work they do.
There are many forms of beauty in the world. There are as many definitions of beauty as there are people in the world because what’s ugly to one person can be the most beautiful thing in the world to another. Our love for beautiful things drives us to make many decisions in life.
There are many questions about our world that we have answered in the last century. But the thing about questions is that there will always be few of them left to be answered. And the hardest ones aren’t about the universe or mathematics, but about the human nature. Why do we feel the way we do when we look at certain things?
Media has the power to teach people about history and it can do the job pretty easily. There are no boring history lessons in movies. You can learn about things from your favorite TV show without even realizing that you are acquiring knowledge. Everyone knows about World War I and World War II, but the details are what we got from TV shows and movies. There are many benefits of learning history from entertainment content.
We can spend hours talking about the sufferings of the world’s underprivileged and we will get nowhere closer to understanding their lives. But talking about them will not help them in any way at all. Another fact that people fail to understand is that plain charity won’t help the poor and underprivileged either. Poverty is not only the lack of economic stability in a country.
Every time you get a new machine or gadget, you open its manual first to read about it. The manual helps you understand the working of your gadget and guides you about how to use it properly. Without it, you might still end up figuring out how to make the machine work, but you can make a few mistakes before you get to that point.
There are a lot of things in life whose importance we learn about from books. We know how important something is only because we had read about it. There are also a few things about which our parents told us at a young age and kept on talking about them to make us understand how important they are.
Despite what we see in movies, none of us want a complicated life. In fact, it is the unnecessary complications in life that make living difficult. If the world was a simple place where everything was exactly what it seemed and there were no hidden meanings of things, we would have been very satisfied with things.
No one can deny the power of a good story. Going to sleep while someone read to you from your favorite book is the best memory of childhood for many of us. It not only widened our imagination but also instilled the love of reading in us. It is also the reason most of us prefer fictional character over real life people.
Everyone has opinion about things but we also have lots of opinions about others. Someone can mention a few of your colleagues, and you will be able to go in detail about each of them and their personalities and behaviors. Sometimes our opinions are formed based on our experience with people.
What becomes the identity of a people? Is it their skin color or their nationality? Maybe it is their culture or the language they have been speaking all their lives? But what if they learn a different tongue later or adopt a secondary culture in their mid-twenties? These are the questions that sociologists think about less than the people who are not sure about their identities. When they raise these questions in front of others, they might get answers like, ‘you can define yourself’. But in truth, there are a few things that will always be the identity of people.
How important are your origins to you? If you are among the lucky majority on earth, you know your real parents. But is it enough for you? Or do you want to know more? Who were your ancestors and were they on the right side of history during the civil war? Or the World Wars? Many people pay organizations to find out all they can about their ancestors and complete their family tree.
