An update about nothing
Which really leads to the basic question most of us have in our minds: What do we wish to attain by telling us about our inner problems, desires, fears and aspirations? Psychology and philosophy has provided the answers to our enquiry, but we are just as aware that in truth, there's nothing highly profitable to be gained. Most issues are still dealt with on an individual basis and much of the strength an person employs against his/her challenges are sourced from his/herself.
I don't know what makes a person stronger, be it s/he relying on his/her own self-will and determination or relying on the hopes and support of others, though I am inclined to believe the latter. Man is a social animal, and very few can struggle against the world alone. Even for those who challenge the world by themselves, still count on the support of an entity besides themselves, sometimes bordering on an imaginery or dead person.
What then comes most surprising for me, is how sometimes this daily fact can be viciously ignored at our own peril. I've come to the honest recognition that most of the problems in life are overcomed through the mass support of others and not neceessarily the lone individual. There are some exceptions but they are rare and marginal which doesn't suffice in extenuating the fact that most of us go through the troubles of life only due to the help of someone or several others.
I think most of us have yet to recognise that ideal. And that's why it has become an imperative to always tell others about our fears, wants, hopes and dreams. Cos people do count on each other, even if they are unforseeable.
