Albert Einstein once said ” Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
The society we live in has determined what makes for being intelligent, successful and settled, and if you don’t aspire to be dictated by its notions….. well, you’ll be ridiculed, demeaned and belittled/ yelled at.
But is this one sighted approach of linking intelligence with academics, success with wealth and settled with being married with children, prudent?
I have observed on multiple situations, people with a lot of potential being belittled just ’cause they fail to attain the standards set by the society. We, as humans, have failed to comprehend the notion of liberty to live the life one wants.
Albert Einstein also said, “It is, in fact, nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry”, emphasizing that the *academic curriculum* that we have been using to determine intelligence is in fact flawed. And shouldn’t success that be a personal journey, an expedition to comprehend the meaning of success for oneself. And why does one need to be married to be settled? Why not consider having figured and accomplished the lifestyle we intend to live to be called as being settled?
“And to be thinking less of oneself, more like questioning one’s own existence”
Let’s let each one live for his own experience
