Life Ain't a Race

Updated on June 16, 2020

I have always heard Life is a Race. How I wish we grew up somewhere where we would be taught Life is not a race.

Its never too late

Past few days have struck me so hard. It has been difficult for me to digest the fact that Sushant is no more. But the thing that has struck me even harder is seeing people giving up this easily. Nepal recorded around 1200 suicide cases this lockdown. I know the one who must be going through thoughts of having suicide can think of nothing else. If he/she could hold on to positive thoughts, they would have never let negative thoughts dwell in their mind. But only they know what pain they go through. Maybe the ones who committed suicide tried to reach out for people. But no we have been so obsessed to our work, our life that no one has time for one another. Work stress, relationship stress, studies stress; everything may hunt you down one day as well. Why let that day come? Can’t you guys take an initiative now? Or you have to wait till your own is a victim of suicide? Why not make everyone friendly environment? Why compete with each other? Compete with yourself, compete to be a better version of yourself. Why have that feeling of competition towards other; Sorry not competition; infact its hatred towards other’s success, jealousy.

After all, the ultimate moto is survival! Is it that hard to live your own life happily and let others live theirs happily. Can’t everyone get the taste of happiness, satisfaction?

I am afraid this feeling of competition will lead us nowhere. Day by day, a parent will lose his/ her children; children their parents.

Before saying Suicide is not the solution, Please try and make the environment for people where they will have no thoughts of suicide and we will not have to repeat Please don’t commit suicide, time and again.

I have always heard Life is a race. How I wish we grew up somewhere where we would be taught Life is not a race. We can however change things. Its never too late.

      We may differ for opinions in this but we share almost same thoughts in other stuffs. In some way, your words are true too. But maybe when we don't take life as a race. We will be living it the way we want. So there will be desire only to live. This is what I feel. And yeah thrills are there in life. With no thrills, life is nothing. But we can make that thrill to be a competition to be better version of yourself. Lots of love♥️

      Well mate I have to disagree with you on this topic. Like it or not Life's a race, the moment you stop moving forward you will loose the very interest to live.

      That being said, life is a race alright but that doesn’t necessary mean your only motive is to win. The important thing is the thirlls you experience while undertaking the journey to you finish line.

      Life's a race alright but you are to only reach the finish line doesn’t matter if you came first or last.

      Yes Ma'am, almost everyone of us in this world are taught by society that Life is a Race. Don't feel sorry Ma'am. I know you have always opposed this. And thank you for your compliment♥️
