Drebar-Drebar Selfish

Young Man

Malayan drivers, mostly comprises of two kinds—one is either too careful or too relaxed the other is too rash or too rushed. Both of them have one thing in common. Both are selfish in their own ways and selfishness causes only negativity and dreadfulness.

 Shallowness is noticeable when we keep on changing lanes when we all are heading towards the same direction. Instead we need to constantly feel like we are moving even it means merely zigzagging. We end up slowing down the traffic flow. I am not just blaming others, I am one of you and that puts my mind and heart under severe distressfulness. Though seriously, what is with this selfish mentality, whereby others don’t matter, “as long as I am fine the rest don’t matter.” Which parents thought their kids this form of belief?! Which school refrains one to look ahead and train them to remain shallow and all that they can see and think off is only their own self-importance?! I am not sure whether the previous sentences were questions or statements?

Having said that, of course we need someone to blame, hence I’d generalize and blame the society, although I don’t think anyone deserves more  blaming than our society, except the ones who might’ve shaped the society itself. It pains me when I see the huge roads being clogged at dawn. These expectations and desires that make people sell their lives and live in lifelong debts... Again, it feels like my skin being peeled, (that’s a little too dramatic, sorry about that) to once again have this connection with the masses of people, that I too am with the burden of having to pay off monthly debts for years to come. In order to do so, a job has to always be secured and in order to have a secure job; one has to serve his master and company day in and day out. Such is the cycle.

Nevertheless, having being all pessimistic. It is of importance and greatness for a human being to behave in a selfless way, you know because we live in a selfish community that moulds people into becoming self-interested beings. Again to make life balanced and not only try to enrich oneself the selfish way i.e. the material way, one will surely be happier. Though we don’t see it because we are shallow beings, we can’t afford to look forward. There are walls surrounding us, making us only see a few steps ahead.

Now that I am done whining, I’ll probably go look for something else to shop/buy to fulfil my insatiable desires which would probably satisfy me for a day or two or few mere minutes until I figure out what other things to buy to make life seem more meaningful, such is the fool.

I close with a verse from the scripture: And they say, “Our hearts are covered against the affair you call us to, and there is deafness in our ears, and there is a barrier between us and you - therefore mind your own business, we are minding ours.”

about the writer

Alam

Often seen as cold, bitter and distant but in reality is cool, sweet and not very distant..haha Sometimes I feel like saying what Kierkegaard said, People understand me so poorly that they even dont understand my complain about them not understanding me. On the other hand often I assume of understanding people completely...so i guess its a given or an irony or something else..depends on how you see it..
