When We Create Prisons Of Convenience
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

All of us are in certain kind of prison of our own. To most of us who've examined ourselves closely, we normally identify that a prison come in many forms. It might be financial disability, being enslaved by a devastating way of passion, or getting reminded by a painful past we’ve never learned to let go. As a result, we betray each of our freedom to the prison within.

Of all the many prisons I have come across, most people have created a prison of a universal greed. Subsequently, from that prison of greed, we gave birth to something more evil: the curse of limitation. With the advancement of new technologies, we somehow was able to find gratification in building shallow relationships as we neglect the little things which mattered most. As a substitute for writing letters which are old fashioned and sweet, a lover resorted to texting and tweeting online, since it is more common but all the while never intimate. But it worked for us, because we loved the benefit of a limited relationship.

An illustration of this this is receiving a dinner date with friends, then at the very last minute, backing out just by texting you’re not going. We arrogantly believed that was okay. However if we have the decency to reflect the gravity of these action, we’re all victims of simple absolutions. Nothing is grand anymore. You can turn down an engagement which can build stronger relationships by a mere text message. The days are gone when someone is obliged to meet the person because sending messages are believed to be an expensive commodity. The old days may be limited with convenience, but the majority of the stories I’ve heard weren't limited with love.

There was a time when I did the exact same, I recently found myself communicating my life openly with strangers I met in the social media, but not to my loved ones. Personally, a shallow relationship is less complicated to end. I ran headless towards the curse of limiting myself and I became stingy of my love. Needless to say, It took a death of a dearly loved one to make me be aware that time waits for no one, and that regrets are indeed essentially the most painful of all.

We talked about John Gokongwei, and exactly how he led his life towards great accomplishments before . On his 80th birthday, he donated half of his billions to charities, but please note: he started his empire by selling only peanuts. With that in mind, I find his story an antidote to the curse. He was generous, but not just to charities. He was generous to live the dream he dreamed and as a result, he blessed so many lives.

The conclusion could possibly be the same, but how we made a different path matters most. Whatever battle each of us is having at the moment, be generous. Be someone who’s never imprisoned by the walls of a limited life.

Live the marvelous life! Join Truly Rich Club!
