Lost in thought

20 May 2021

For the past two weeks, I haven’t been writing. Or rather, I haven’t been able to write. Because I can’t get out of my head.

There are so many things happening in the country that it is impossible to gather one’s thoughts in the chaos, especially for someone like me who writes about things outside of the current agenda. Choosing a topic feels meaningless, and presenting readers with that topic feels facetious.

This is how I feel.

They say that my articles are usually quite long. So this time, I wanted to write a short one about a few of the million different thoughts in my head to set you thinking for a long time.

Here: the thoughts that I am preoccupied with…

– Wouldn’t our personal endeavors and relationships benefit from sustainability?

– Are the things we offer to those around us, actually the things they want to receive?

– Isn’t it better to enjoy what we have experienced rather than feeling sorry that it’s over?

– Isn’t it better to suffer by facts than to be distracted by lies?

– Have all our proverbs been conceived by pessimistic people who are ‘afraid of life’?

– My dad used to say ‘being trusted is a bigger compliment than being loved’, what do you think?

– Isn’t having someone to come home to the most precious thing one can have?

– Could we be afraid of saying or doing things because we are afraid of being criticized?

– Doesn’t it make more sense to use the thing we call money rather than saving it?

– Is there anything better than knowing what one wants in life?

– Which is more valuable: the fact that the person before us lets us be who we are or that they remain as who they are?

Let’s think about these for a bit, and next week I will write about something that makes me proud.
