“We suffer more in our imagination than in reality. There is nothing in the world that can trouble you as much as your own thoughts.”
What is reality?
Merely something happening presently or realistic approach is reality. It is the state of things as they actually exist, as opposed to an idealistic or notional idea of them.
What is imagination?
The result of our own mind, thoughts and hopes. According to google: the faculty or action of forming new ideas, or images or concepts of external objects not present to the senses.
So now that we know what is reality and imagination are, let’s move forward to how it actually effects us in life and our behavior in society.
As a normal human being, we always tend to think about what’s going to happen or be prepared for the challenges in future and life, and thus plan accordingly. Well some are spontaneous and enthusiastic and planned at the moment but the planned things rely mainly on our imagination and creativity to what is about to happen and what acts to be performed to shape a certain situation to become as of planned.
But what happens when imagination controls our reality?
Crimes, issues, depression etc., Are tend to happen as it leads to major paranoia. For example: a wife having doubt on husband that he’s cheating and is planning to leave her, can further investigate using means and in the end might lead to sabotaging the relationship. And situation might be such, the husband ain’t cheating, and just busy with work.
This is mere a small level of interference but what happens when a person is totally consumed by imagination. Fir example: A standard 12 kid dying of heart-attack due to excessive playing of pubg, a mere online game, which caused such trauma and stress that the heart failed.
The level of control doesn’t allow us to move forward and see clarity and just blur the reality thus causing disturbance.
We have to remember not to cross this thin line and lose our sense to see the truth. Imagination and creativity is good but not when it interferes with our fears and mind and thus causing conflict in reality.
I have always been against Glorifying Over Work and therefore, in the year 2021, I have decided to launch this campaign “Balancing Life”and talk about this wrong practice, that we have been following since last few years. I will be talking to and interviewing around 1 lakh people in the coming 2021 and publish their interview regarding their opinion on glamourising Over Work.
