Realism of Life
The Naked Truth
Life is a matter of the living and the dead. Those who are still kicking and those who have kicked the bucket. Life boils down to money and how much of it you have. When it comes down to the actual core of things, no one really cares about you. It’s about what you can bring to the table. If you don’t have anything you can render, you’re useless to others. Society stresses the importance of money and what it can buy. You can’t do anything without it. And if you don’t have it, you’re as good as dead.
Forget about being generous to others, they will never appreciate it. These days everyone cares more about themselves, which isn’t wrong. It’s just that people can take your kindness or generosity for granted. They don’t care what you had to go through to get that money or that thing for them. Selfishness and greed is deeply rooted in our society. It’s all about self-interest, personal gain. In the end, giving to others can drain you to the point of running dry. Don’t be a fool. Give wisely.
Make money or earn money and get a lot of it. There’s a difference between the two. There’s no limit to how much you can make when you’re making money. But when you’re earning money, the amount that you can acquire is already calculated and allocated. When you work 9 to 5, that time that you have sacrificed and devoted to earn money has been budgeted by your bosses at the top of the food chain.
The good people keep suffering, that’s all that I see. Some die before they receive the fruits of their labor. Some die in poverty and a lonely person. We’re living in a society where no one wants to hear you speak the gospel truth anymore. Only a few. The world’s so materialistic, and human life has become expendable. Material things like money are valued much more.
Work hard and instill good morals of life in your children. Don’t let them go astray under your watch. Lead by example, let your children see that actions speak louder than words. Never let them give up on themselves and think less of themselves. They should walk with their head up, chest out and have confidence.
Life for me was never the same again after I lost the life of my father. He was in a bad state after his diagnosis of stage 4 kidney cancer. He was my best friend. His death taught me that life can be so cruel. Oh, woe is me that I wish I can bring my dad back to life. Oh, how I wish I can take his lifeless corpse out the grave and somehow miraculously revive him. I shed tears every now and then thinking about him. He was everything to me. Why couldn’t he have been spared? Why wasn’t there a cure for his cancer. Some doctors can look you in the face and tell you they’re sorry, knowing very well that there’s a cure to the patient’s sickness. So I say to you, rest in perfect peace.
In this life you will struggle, struggle and struggle. That’s just how it is. You will be putting in all the effort to make something of yourself, but you will never, ever find it easy. You must go through difficulty, hardship, it’s inevitable. What can one do when obstructions get in the way?
Don’t forget to treat people the way you want to be treated. You know it’s true what they say, nice guys finish last. I agree with that. People in our society will let you know that nice guys finish last. No one knows tomorrow. This thing called life can be very dynamic, uncertain and overwhelming.
