Time and again, I am sure that we are at these crossroads where it becomes quite difficult to make a choice between various things we want to do in life, the many confusion, the fascinations, diversions, somehow it becomes quite difficult to choose a path for ourselves. What do we do in a situation like that? How do we take a decision when there are so many confusions? Well! One of the simplest way is to look around us, see what others are doing, and simply follow the same – Easy right? If so many people are doing it, then it must be right! There is no way it can go wrong and also if it does, we have the company of so many others for whom it didn’t work – atleast we have company!
Well! What if those others too took the decision cos they found others doing it? What if those others also did the same? Someone once told very firmly – “Identify where the herd is going, go the opposite direction”. Maybe it makes sense, this way atleast I would be getting rid of all the competition. On the plus side I would not be a part of the rat race! But I guess we can take multiple reasonings for a decision, at some point both the herd mentality and also the mentality of a rebel seems to work best. But the real answer might be to try and identify what our heart wants the most and go ahead in that direction. The herd may or may not be there to support you but something else turns up, the entire society maybe against you, but something turns up, and at times even you maybe against yourself but something turns up. After all, it is your life, your decisions, it pays to live it the way you want!
