Conflict! Pushing us outside our views to see others En route for an added widespread ground To conquer fears, become better communicators, To understand others, growing out of our comfort zone. The word ‘conflict’ sends an unpleasant interpretation and negative thoughts in the minds of people. Not even the hardiest leaders like to hear ‘conflict’.
“If there’s no conflict, there are no stories worth telling-or reading.” Veronica Roth I agree, because for me, conflict is in nature. When we say conflict, the world is created and developed by/with conflict; then, everything becomes worth seeing, worth hearing, worth smelling, worth tasting, worth touching and worth telling–and when written, it is worth
Mary, my friend, was actively involved in politics. One day, I revealed my wish for her to become a senator, but she shocked me with her response. “Do you know if what I wanted was to be a councillor?” she asked. I was dumbfounded when Mary said this, given that the political position I had
Human nature is characterised by insecurity. We are always distressed, wishing we could change certain things. Everyone has this feeling no matter how high or low our position is. It is therefore important for us to understand that hate and love are parts of psychological emotions we experience on a day-to-day basis. Fear, stress, jealousy,
“If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.” – Henry Ford After reviewing the quote above, I laughed silently, remembering one joke about the collective farm that overfulfilled the plan and received rewards. During a meeting with farmers they had to decide what to spend the rewards for. The
The title above is very deep. It challenges us to think deeply. It is the summary of our existence in this world. It is the summary of all fields of learning. To say that the title is deep without taking into consideration all the definitions behind the word conflict is to ridiculously contradict oneself. Conflict
”What do you want to become when you grow up?” is the question that follows you in every aspect of your life. At the age of innocence, the age of hide and seek the answer is quick and spontaneous, but what happens when you become older? The answer comes slower and requires more thought than
It is believed that most things achieved in life are through the rewiring of the mind’s perception. Success is mindset but how truly committed are you to that goal? What are you willing to sacrifice to achieve it? How curious and ready are you to use positive energy through your thoughts to become someone else
Who exactly are you? Can you precisely say who you are? Man has accomplished great feats in this world, even out of this planet Earth. We have defined, described, analysed, evaluated, invented, created and modified innumerable concepts and ideas for man’s development and establishments; yet, we do not know exactly who or what we are.
When you grow up, you go through some form of an identity crisis. You start to wonder what the purpose of your existence is and how you can contribute to the world in which you live. First, you will discover your hobbies and build on them. If there is real passion and hard work involved,
The unwritten law of the universe is that everything must have a gauge; an imposed yet useful limitation. Why? Because excesses result in one thing only: destruction. Innovations have brought about industrialisation and commercial technology has improved human life. However, Henry Ford once said: “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have
Humans, like any other animals, are survivors that continuously evolve over time to stay coherent with the changing world. Being a realistic person in the actual world is totally frictional against the fantasy of ideal self-being. Since ages, humans are readily tied to social constructs such as rules, races, and education. These constructs very much
I was looking for you. I found you crumbled, slightly scattered in a pile. Gray colored and the pale look of ash appeared under your eyes. You reminded me of Stone Dust! You were dull, crumbly and emotionless. I observed you from above. It was an out of body experience. I was OUT of my
Whenever I make the rendition of reality within me visible through the pen, only two people seem to exist: me and the reader. I write with the reader chained in my mind, and the reader would want to read my story because of reasons depending on his relationship with stories. Why am I a writer?
True hate is scarce these days. Hate is not what we often think it is. When people experience similar patterns of hostile behaviour, they are inclined to conclude that they are being hated, but what we mostly interpret as hate in society is in fact often demonstrations arising from conflicting interests and goals. When individuals
1 A week, a month, or a year from now, I will most likely be laughing, perhaps simply amused, at this exact piece of work, a familiar and recurrent experience everyone can relate to. I call it ‘the summary effect’, an experience that looks upon the silliest of our past deeds, and proves over and
Sometimes the scariest confrontation is that between the mind, body and soul. When the human trinity is so out of sync, you feel a deep depression, an existential problem and pity for the conflicted frail species that you are. Human. A mere mortal. The incongruence of my dreams and aspirations in my reality is the
To breath and not actually live is a sin to all those who never had the chance to live as long as us. Many people are afraid of death but fail to understand that being stationary in life and not being more than what you were yesterday is worse than death. It is robbing yourself
Nelson Mandela: the herd-boy from Mvezo In February of 1990, Nelson Mandela stepped out of prison after a gruelling 27 years. The Mandela who emerged from prison was a different person from the boy who herded cows in his father’s village. When he emerged, with a cautious walk, the crowd went electric. It was a
