A meme with a difference :)

Anoop over at Tales of a lone wolf has tagged me to do this meme. It surely is a meme with a difference.

1) It is important to be liked by others : Well, not necessarily . I believe one should first like themself and be the way they want to be than changing the way they are to be liked by others . If people like you the way you are then it is fine :)

2) Obedience is a virtue: I don't agree to this either. I don' think one has to be blindly obedient as this might not really help them in the future. Never get worried even if your decisions turn out to be not too perfect as it will jus' add to your experience and make you wise. At a later part in your life, you will regret for things you have missed out than the things you did in an incorrect way.

3) People are not malicious but they become so because of bad experiences orcircumstances: Bad situations would have changed the way people behave, but that I feel is jus' an excuse to blame others or things that has happened to get away with their behaviour. I consider a person who behaves best under a bad situation with a high regard as everyone would put our best feet forward under normal situations . I think it is these bad experiences or situations that differentaites people.

4) Education broadens our view and makes people more humane: I do agree education broadens our view but about making people humane I doubt it?? Even people from remote villages who have minimal access to good education have a good way of thinking and behaviour may be they jus' have to be groomed a little more to go to the next higher level. On the other hand I don' think all city brought up people are great thinkers or behave more humane than their other counter parts .

Most of all it is the individuals personal values and what one wants to make of himself/herself that makes all the difference.

5) People who have no money troubles are happier:Not really, I don' think money is the only thing that makes a person either happy or sad . There are innumerable factors . So, I don't really think the millionaries/ billionaries out there are really happy .

6) As people get older they get wiser:It depends. If one is old it doesnt necessarily mean that they are wiser as one doesn't get wise with age but the experiences they come across in life .

7) You can live on love and fresh air: Love and fresh air are much needed but is not the only thing that

8) There is a celestial guardian angel looking after each one of us:I do belive in it.. Each of us have a different name for it and I call it god :) . I don' know if its true or not but this helps me to be the way I am :)

9) All living beings reincarnate.I don’t believe in this. Thou' I have heard there are stuffs like that and have also felt like I have been in some place already even thou have never been there before I still don' believe in the concept of reincarnation.

10) Heaven and Hell are places you go to after death. I'm not too sure of this thing one too but would like to think so as it helps one stay good and stay away from the bad.
