The Unpredictability Of Life Essay

946 words - 4 pages

Life is unpredictable. It does not always bring happiness and gives us all that we want. Regardless how hard we try and how much we desire to move life according to our own direction, it does not move according to our wishes. In our life, we have to make important decisions. There are few decisions that give direction to our lives. So, in order to make these decisions it is imperative that all the rationale and logical factors should be taken into consideration. But, often, times come when we take decisions under the influence of others. In this family, relatives and friends play important role in my life. If i rewind my life, then, I can also think of various events where I made decisions under other people’s influence. We put on others that make us to follow and obey what others say to us our priority and value. One of the decisions that pinch the pain and dubiousness in my heart and mind is related to continue friendship with a friend at school.

In the times of troubles, I was a supporter and guide for him. I also informed my parents about this new friend of mine. My friends at school also knew that I am his good friend. Initially, my parents were also happy that I am sharing someone’s pains. Suddenly, all my friends began to give me threats that if I continue my friendship with that boy then I would be in trouble. When I did not listen to my friends, they went to my parents. After my friends visit to my home, my parents also asked me to end up my friendship with that boy. When I asked my friends and parents the rationale behind that then they revealed a harsh reality on me.
