Change

Throughout life our personality, needs, and goals will change. Also, the people we hang out with and those we want in our life will change over time. Those changes that occur in us through the course of life are normal, as the self is not a stable entity. Life itself is not static, and change is the only integral part of life which is constant.

Cherish Yourself and Embrace Humanity

One Humanity by Geeta Biswas

We are not the same but we are equal
According to the laws of creation
Melanin determines our complexion
We are parts and pieces of creation
Who are we to judge one another?
Among us are philosophers and scientists
And we still live in hatred and confusion
Nature is there staring at us and smiling
While rubbing its immortality on our faces
***
I won’t live my life being a colour
I see human beings beyond complexion
I see one humanity not various human race
I see billions with beautiful bodies and souls
***
People are dying of inferiority complex
Cosmetic surgeries are rampant this age
People has ventured into skin alteration
The pale wants to become tanned
The tanned wants to become pale
They stuck between the complexion spectrum
Is it true that human nature is defective?
That slight difference makes us unique
We must be pleased in our various skins
Biology and culture regulates our lives
We must utilize wisdom as we live

Fear Is Illusion

Fear is an unpleasant emotion—which can be rational or irrational—caused by the threat of danger, pain or harm. At some points in life fears that seems irrational must be eradicated.

The Parable of a Nation

A child born centuries ago was captured and raised by foreign parents. This child was officially liberated to be independent decades ago after she has been defiled, molested and exploited by her foster parents; while this child was still immature and also malnourished. The said child grew up through pain and suffering in all its forms. She weds and divorces husbands every four or eight years, for that’s the kind of life she was taught to live by her foster parents. So, when one husband treat her better than the previous, she will cry and shed tears of joy that her previous husband never treated her this good. But if another one comes and treat her bad, she will cry again and shed tears of pain and agony, complaining that her ex-husband never treated her this bad. Those who has been chosen to be her crown are nothing but bloodsuckers, they’ve got nothing to offer in making her life better but to steal from her and add to her problems.

Cherish and Respect Yourself

If you don’t want to be addressed with derogatory terms, stop using them for yourselves. For instance, some people of African descent would address themselves as nigger, some people of European descent would address themselves as cracker, some women would address themselves as bitch, and some men would address themselves as stud – just to mention few. But when someone who doesn’t belong to those groups use those terms, the in-group individuals get offended. In a nutshell, socially constructed derogatory terms are useless and demeaning to humanity. ‪Due to this reason, everyone should stop using those terms whether you’re entitled to say it or not. Finally, you must know your worth as a human being and respect yourself by calling yourself good names, then others will respect you.
