– Yong Dae Kang
Are you happy? With yourself? No you are not. You are who you are. You are stuck. It is what it is.
You take what this world offers you and keep saying you will be as happy as you can be. I don’t blame you. I do the same thing. Aren’t you tired of it though? Then again, there is nothing you can do about it.
Would you be happy if you didn’t know yourself? I used to, for a while. That is, as much as others allowed me to. I’ve concluded there is no true happiness in this world. You didn’t choose yourself. You didn’t choose your parents. You didn’t choose anything about yourself. But here we are. We can’t even save ourselves. Just pretending to be happy.
No matter what changes we make or how much we help others make changes, we will always be stuck looking at ourselves and we can’t even save ourselves. We are born, we struggle, we die. Is that too simplistic? Many of us won’t even choose how or when we die. But we will all die the same person we started out as, won’t we?
Have you embraced yourself? What is it? Only the truth shall set you free? Truth is you are ugly. That’s the truth. And there is no escape from it. We try all different things this world offers everyday but there is no escape.
Go look in the mirror. What do you see? Past failures, mistakes, shortcomings, what you consider achievements? Would you lie, cheat and steal to win? Yes, we would. Have you been saved? Or are you safe, for now?
