Have you ever had a dream that someone’s chasing you, you don’t know who it is but still keep running? And suddenly you wake up with your heart beating loudly in your chest!
This is actually the truth of this generation.
Didn’t understand? Umm wait let me explain…
In a few words — PRESSURE OF COMING FIRST!
Have you ever felt this pressure? I am sure all of you reading this have felt like this atleast once, or are still going through it.
Today I got my history answer sheet checked, and I scored 40/40 (I am really happy! no stress about that lol) But my friend (her answer sheet isn’t checked yet) she was very upset. she said “Oh god! I don’t think I’ll even able to pass this exam, let alone score good marks”. I said “Why are you saying that? believe in yourself”. Her eyes were almost filled with tears, and she said “I KNOW what I have done in my exam and i am aware of the consequences!”
Why all this stress? afterall it’s just a plain white sheet with some words written on it! THE ANSWER IS COMPETITION
EVERYONE wants to come first in this race called “LIFE”
And the principle of “SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE” obviously does not apply here… because … I CAN’T THINK OF A REASON!!!
Like a dream unfortunately you cannot wake up hoping it would end!
I am unable to provide any conclusion to this blog post, because right now I am stressed about my upcoming POL science exam on monday! Isn’t it weird that I am writing about coming first and how it affects a student but still THINKING about coming first in my class!
Something’s not right. And I don’t know what that SOMETHING is! Why are we so obsessed about this so called RACE!
Will you help me? I know without competition it is not possible to earn respect in this modern world, but do you have ANY suggestions for people like me (and many others like my friend) who are just running not knowing which race they are participating in, or for what are they running at all?
P.S sorry for such an incomplete kind of blog post with no starting and no definite end, but I can’t help it, because I am myself CONFUSED!
SUGGESTIONS are welcomed! xxx (and are needed urgently)
