People are perhaps the most inspiring and the most annoying parts of the society. I never seem to come to an unequivocal stand there. Sometimes I feel they are the best in the world, with the innocence, the amazing smiles, the camaraderie. Almost very instantly I find myself debating the negatives like the selfishness, the petty egos, the immodesty, larger than life image and so on.. I guess any society we are in, we shall always have these beautiful yet annoying structures around us. But there certainly is a beauty in this. Treated the right way and in the right proportion, there could be nothing better in this world!
If we are talking about the negatives, people will irritate us, try to mould us into their definitions of an ideal man or a woman and the definitions keep varying, not just from person to person but with the same person from time to time. There never seems to be a consistent advice on that front. Well either so, they keep doing that. They make us feel sad, annoyed, irritated, angry, vilified and what not. They make us feel all sort of things and they make us hate them in every possible way.
But wait a minute, if they are doing all that, what are we doing? At the time we are harbouring hatred towards them, what are we doing? What is our thought process in this process? How does our mind feel when we feel these, where do our thoughts circle when we think of them like this, how do our emotions react? Are these emotions of respect or are these emotions the ones which make us grow or the ones which make us get in touch with the petty side of ourselves? Are we letting it consume us? That’s all Will Smith is saying. People will say the darnest things, it is in your domain whether you let it affect you. You may either hit back and fight but that’s not going to calm your emotions, it may make you feel better for the moment but that doesn’t solve anything. The question is can we do the bigger thing, can we just look at them and smile and find a better way to answer, not for their sake but our very own!
