How Can We Deal with the Cruelty and the Absurdity of This World?


9 months agoSteemit7 min read

Hi, dear friends!

There is a question that I am often asked, and that is: How do I deal with the cruelty and the darkness that is surrounding the world that we live in today?

To be fair, and not to sound like an entitled or privileged person, that is a reasonable question.

A lot of us take a look at the world at its current state and think that our society is irredeemable.

That is a valid assessment, considering everything that is simultaneously happening all around the globe.

So, the real question is: How do we deal with such absurdity and darkness?

Another reasonable person might tell you that this viewpoint is both absolute and prejudiced; that there are still so many good things that are happening in the world, but we fail to see them.

You know what? I actually agree with this reasonable person

But in this blog post, I don’t want to preach about the good things that happen in this world and the many blissful things that are bestowed on us but we are too blind to notice them.

In this post, we are going to reasonably take a look at the dark tidings of this good earth.

Terrible things happen every day. Hundreds of people die; many die in pain, many die in peace. Some are killed by disease and some are killed by people. Many die a natural death.

Millions of hearts are broken on a daily basis. People abandon loved ones. People commit cruelties towards one another. People do cruel and mean things that they otherwise would not.

This life is as blissful as it is tragic. No one can deny tragedy. It is an unwavering truth of our world. However hard you try, however fast you run, tragedy will always catch up to you.

But what is one to do despite all of this?

I am here to answer this question for those of you who cannot share with the outlook of the optimists.

The thing is, almost everything bad that happens in our world is a direct result of human meddling. So, it is fair to suggest that each and every one of us, at some point in our lives, will be presented with a choice:

Do the right thing, or choose the wrong path and do others harm.

This is a decision that we will all have to face.

On a smaller scale, making the right decisions everyday to become competent in life and change the world for better is yet another choice!

Some people outright make the wrong decisions and create a miserable life, both for themselves and those who are around them.

What I am essentially trying to tell you is that we have a choice…

There is beauty in this world. Even the most pessimistic person cannot deny that they have looked beauty right in the face at least once in their lives.

That tiny glimmer of hope, that trace of light, that foundation under which all our values and ideals are stored… my friends, these things are worth fighting for!

That is all you need to know when it comes to the absurdity and the cruelty of our world.

As dark and terrible as everything might seem, you could still make a choice and become a beacon of hope for everyone around you.

Making the right decisions and you will be delivered, despite the difficulty and darkness of everything.

Those tiny things, those small acts of love, those refutable glimmers of hope are worth fighting for!
