What Do You Do When Life Turns Upside Down?

Life can certainly become chaotic from time to time, the question is HOW will you face it? It seems that everyone has become busy lately, each having a problem of their own. A problem which they still do not yet overcome. What will you do when suddenly your life is not under your control? It becomes so out of hand that even you yourself find it so difficult to understand what needs to be done. Or even worse, what will you do when you know what needs to be done but you yourself know that you are uncapable of doing so due to whatever (such as working hard to get 4-flat for your CGPA, OMG!). I don't really care what you actually do to face the problem, I think what actually matters is HOW you want to face the problem.

Reader A : Wtf? Why should we care about HOW we face the problem? What we do itself is the ONLY important thing there is to think about!! WHAT we do determines the outcome, so duh~!

Well reader A, I'm just voicing out my thoughts about such matter. I think how we face the problem should be taken more seriously. Why? I don't think "WHAT we do" is the only important thing there is. You see, most people have been doing the same thing which others are doing, but yet their outcome are different from one another. For example, in studies people are doing the same thing but yet their accomplishment varies from one another (well, of course our mind's capabilities vary from one another and that is also why the outcome is different but that is not the point). My point is, even though people study the same thing for 2 hours, the outcome of such study will vary with others due to their approach on HOW they study. People can study lazily and people can dedicate themselves to study seriously as well. This will also affect the outcome. That is why people say work hard and study smart.......... I can somehow sense myself talking about "crap" here and people might yell out and say "THANK YOU CAPTAIN OBVIOUS!!!". Well, before that happens I shall stop myself from speaking further about such matter~! Hohohoho!!

Hmmm, my statement above is quite hard to relate to my actual point in which I was trying to prove.. But owh well~! In other words, it is important that you approach your problem by firstly analyzing such matter in every point of view available.. So that you do not solve such problem in a false way due to Egocentrism.. Egocentrism happens when people think that their thoughts and belief are superior than others due to their awesome amount of ego. This usually occurs among people in an argument. The argument can easily be solved by saying sorry and such and such... But due to their "EGO", they decide to prolong the argument until the other side says they are sorry. But "Egocentrism" can also reach a point of "IRRITATING" in which where they pursue to argue even further even though they know that they are wrong to begin with... And also they pursue to extend the argument even though the other side already admit that they are wrong and asked for forgiveness. This is Egocentrism in which we should eliminate or avoid. Why? It is so that we can face our problems in the most correct manner possible..

About the argument thingy which I mentioned above, it is not applicable to relate to each and every other problems that people may encounter. But the Egocentrism on the other hand, is a different story. A problem should be faced in the most correct manner possible, not in a way in which we ourselves want to because we want to or we simply do not know how to face it or etc.

Instead of asking why the problem occurs or why does it have to happen to you, it is much better for you to just stand up and face the problem properly... Because such matter will only get worse if you leave it be (due to cowardice, ego, laziness, or etc..).

Take control of your life, as much as you possibly can.

amen to that!! haha

but it's true what you said, we must not ask why it happens to you and shit. we have to face it and overcome it. but then, you must remember to look at things at every, different aspects. the whats,the whys, the whos, the whens, the hows and whatnot. the pros and cons too for that matter. okay, am i making sense or not? hahaha mcm dah out laa. but yeah. whatever.

like winston churchill once said, "success is the ability to move from one failure to another with enthusism"
