Book Review, Tuesdays with Morrie

You’re okay

Not everyone will like you. Some are just really bound to add a little spice in your life. You have to be strong. It is because life doesn’t offer pure sweetness; it blends better with bitterness and other flavors. Sometimes, you may think that it is unfair, you’re doing well, you’re not stepping into other people’s lives, and you act right; afterward, you’ll be shocked that someone or many hated you for doing such. It’s okay. If you cannot please them, don’t make a big deal out of it. You don’t need to compromise by passing on anger. Better focus on impressing yourself than stirring their unfair flak. For, after all, it is your life.

As Morrie Schwartz said in Mitch Albom’s ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’, “The culture we have does not make people of themselves, and you have to be strong enough to say if the culture doesn’t work, don’t buy it.” He’s right. Let’s use it as a context to a culture we’re not usually aware of but secretly destroy the relations we have. We should raze the culture of hating others just because we don’t like them. The fact that a human’s hatred could change one’s stand in life is alarming. The way a certain remark was delivered could result into positive for bringing you up, or negative for breaking you into pieces. With these, you should believe in the light of the optimistic side. People come and go, criticize your faults but never recognize your good deeds. You have to be firm. And by being firm, does not mean just staying still, you should also keep on moving. Never be bothered by what people say or think of you as long as you love what you’re doing and there are no lives at stake, mind them not at all. Believe in your capacity. Reach your dreams while enjoying the trust and support from the people who truly care about you. Don’t give up on yourself for hope seizes you. Never forget where you came from. Do all these with faith. And lastly, always look up.

Remember that everything’s good because you’re okay.
