WHY PHILOSOPHY IS PHILOSOPHY?

 

                     More often than not, thinkers, scholars and philosophers have been misunderstood. In essence, as Ralph Waldo-Emerson said it eloquently,

                                           “great men are misunderstood.”

In essence, on a purely human level, people may love or hate me or may accept or reject a certain part of my personality but this is all what it entails coming to terms to declare my philosophy. However, I question myself…. How do I know that I know what I know? Are they rival sets of facts or just my unredeemed illusions in life? Or what I know is something else entirely?

 

 

 

TRUST ME….

Trust is a strange thing. It is the basis of our economy, community and even love. Trust should be built by opening up. However, we don’t just open up to anybody for there are people out there who are false friends and inversely; we don’t just close ourselves to anyone we don’t know yet because they maybe potential real friends.  We should scrutinize and choose people whom we can become friends with. We should observe their value system and the things that they do and enjoy in order to choose our friends correctly. It is all about taking risk and discerning who is who to find true friends.

 

DEFENSE MECHANISMS……

Defense mechanisms—- we all have them at some points at some ways. However, people are not too well-informed about what it is about. Those defense mechanisms are what we deal with when we have problems we cannot confront. Unable to brave the storms and mazes of life, we seek for an easy way out. However, we end up being trapped in several complexes of life which are revealed through our defense mechanisms.  To emphasize what I’ve been saying all along, we all scream beneath our lungs, PSYCHOLOGIZE ME.

REJECTION CAN BE A PAIN IN THE NECK…… BUT IT IS NOT PART OF THE WHOLE BODY AND SYSTEM…. REJECTION CAN BE A BLESSING THAT PEOPLE WE CHOOSE MAY CAUSE US HARM AND PAIN TO THE HIGHEST DEGREE…. SO THE MAN ABOVE DELIVER US FROM THE PAIN QUITE EARLY…..   WHAT WE NEED TO DO IS TO WAIT FOR THE RIGHT TIME, RIGHT CIRCUMSTANCE AND RIGHT PERSON…….
