Young & Stupid


Some things are inevitable.........and being young and stupid is one of them. It's one mysterious point in time which comes and goes with free will and not a force on earth can stand in it's way. It didn't matter which background you belonged to, what religion you held on to, what part of the world you hailed from, how badly/wisely you were raised cause still it came for you like it came for me and we weren't able to recognize it till the storm was over. Some enjoy it. Some survive it. Some escape it. Others endure it. But the rest are consumed by it for a long period in it. 

It's roots start to grow in adolescence and the first thing it does is to cage the rational mind and unleash all unfulfilled senses of gratification. All one thinks is to find gratification in one form or the other. Kind of like an animal prowling for its prey.......perhaps. Such a state of heart and mind gives no credence whatsoever to principles,values,empathy,ethics,morals,responsibility and no matter how hard anyone tries to make you understand all this, you just won't give a @#$&. It would feel like that the world is just build to make you happy and when things won't go according to plan than you'll point fingers anywhere but at yourself.

Its a disease that cannot be cured. But perhaps it shouldn't be either. After all there are no greater lessons learned than from mistakes and mishaps..........if one has the rational mind and wisdom to apply. But eventually most of us do learn the beauty of hindsight sooner or later. So if you are going through such a time then just ignore this post cause it may all seem gibberish and I also wish you happy hunting but if you have experienced it then look for damage control for the one's you care about and who are the current host of this vicious parasite so that a quick and smooth transition can take place towards being mature and prudent.

  1. << young and stupid.

    Sighs. This is quite true, I should try and start controlling the damage before it's too late. Thanks for this little heads-up. I think I needed it :)

  2. Yes, we've all been through it. Perhaps, I'm still going through it. Oh well. That's growing up! :)

    P.S. Thanks for checking out my monthly movie picks.

    Lots of love, B

    1. According to my limited understanding this change can occur anytime. If you start to control your impulse for the right purpose and keep long term consequences in mind then mostly likely your home. Humility is also another great factor towards being mature and prudent.

    2. Well, I do hope I make the acquaintance of "mature and prudent" in the near future. So far, "young and stupid" has taken up permanent residence. A tragic state of affairs I tell you.

  5. You took the concept of stupidty and put it into really wise and intellectual words. I have to agree with you. When we do stupid things we don't think about what the consequences could be. Although we can sometimes make up for them later, there are those rare ones that can't be made up for sadly.

    Lovely read!

    1. once you make a mistake, learn from it and apply that learning then that mistake no more remains a mistake.

    @ Rida
    It's normal to be young and stupid. To be precise, id say to keep a journal of your activities in order to remember the time your going through and start to think about all the things you do and think about it's long term consequences. Just keep your thinking part of the brain active

  12. I agree with what you said about how being young and stupid is a disease that shouldn't be cured! Experience is the best teacher. We can't learn from other people's mistakes as fully and completely as we do from our own. If we were never young and stupid, life would be a lot less colourful!:)

  22. Thanks alot for your comment. Well i'll be honest here. The difficulty in writing that tag you sent is that i'm not comfortable with writing about myself. It's something I never really thought about. Hope you will understand. Keep reading :)
