To be dependent on oneself is a blessing in this world. As we grow in our lives, many of us start to find their happiness in external things thereby making us dependent more on them. To find happiness in things that are outside of us brings temporary happiness leaving a void forever. We cling to entertainment, foods, pleasure, try to find out happiness from others and even see our comforts and protection in other person. While to grow one’s innerself in a manner that provides you protection at all times. Today’s generation is becoming more dependent on external things. They are being brought in a manner where less emphasis is placed on internal growth. When our foundations inside us are strong, a person can sustain any storm. I believe it is high time the way new generation is brought should try to put emphasis on innerself. We should be dependent on ourself i.e. to say on our capabilities.. aatamnirbhar as a individual or nation one may say.
I take an opportunity to learn lessons from ongoing War between Russia and Ukraine where Ukraine relied heavily on West for any military aggression on his land. And in lieu of that he stopped expanding his defence mechanism and destroyed its nuclear powers many years ago. Certainly, with this war Ukraine was left with nothing and failed miserably. West refused to come in and safeguard them from aggression. With this War, many nations started to rethink about their defence capabilities and to boost it to cater to any emergency situations. Instead of relying on others we should be dependent on our own self. And this lesson is soo powerful yet it applies to everyone on individual basis. It poses a big question before us how much strong we are within to cater to any kind of heartbreak in life. Most people takes external help to soothe themselves but that doesn’t work in most cases. And person is surrounded with negativity.
This brings to fore that if we work constructively on ourself be it spiritual, economic, personal & mental development and faith in ourself then individual can deal with all the circumstances with ease in life. To bring happiness to oneself and be able keep it alive is something so special to human beings. “As nothing can equal happiness which one find in oneself.”
