Lessons of life

In this journey of life,the process of learning never ceases...with smallest of incidents and largest of issues..it is didactic in nature...people come and people go but they too have a lesson to teach,and just when you think..you have finally learn't all and there isn't much you have to yet learn,you find out that this process of learning in never ending...till you are alive,every new dawn and every dusk will teach you the secret lessons of life....one who is perceptive and intelligent is the one who will readily accepts this knowledge and the ignorant..well they let knowledge pass not knowing just what it is that they have lost....

In my 19 years of life i have always learn't the lesson hard way...i have been hurt and heart broken,betrayed my friends and taken advantage by my peers..no matter how tattered and bruised i have always picked up myself,and then made the onward journey,hence,the blog title-"phoenix rising from the ashes"...just when i thought that i have seen it all..nothing worse can happen,it happened;only to show that learning is never really over.I found out that learning never ceases..life has a lesson to teach every time...and this cyclic process of learning will never end..so no matter how much i try to see the exceptions in bad,to smell fragrance in artificial flowers...or see the lining on every cloud...the fact remains the same....no-one is your mirror image..they are different....it is difficult to find people who are true to you just like obtaining oil by rubbing sand together...often people befriend you to take advantage of you..others who shelter you during your crisis may seem like savior and friends initially turns out to be even bigger opportunist who first rescues you from hell only to push you back into it later....i wonder how many smiling faces and sweet words are a part of a well rehearsed facade....just when i thought that last semester ended by teaching me an invaluable lesson in friendship...i was proved wrong...there was more to come...i guess this is life...it points you in your eye that your emotions and trust is something best kept to yourself...only let out it is bound to land you in a tight spot...

as always last 4 months have taught me to be even more mature and to add another page to my journey of life and yet another lesson to learn about humanity and people whom we call friends....and this journey is not over yet...and i know as i mature these pages will increase and maybe someday..i may as well learn something from it and not do things that i keep promising myself i ll never let myself into...maybe some day i ll learn to art of dissimulation...and hopefully then i ll be a part of this world where everyone plays a part...and its all about masquerade...and it is indeed the survival of the fittest...

omg! pretty heavy stuff! just when you think you've seen the worst that life has to offer, it has it's way of throwing hints at you that more is to come :( so the best we can do is to move on, let bygones be bygones, learn from such experiences, and be strong! and the funny thing is that we don't have a choice!
take care:)

@standbymind
yeah i agree...but in todays world a rare few value relationships...if you have to compete with the honchos..you have to be like them...a very cynical view i agree but then...truth and reality is always harsh
