A wise man from this university 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 it’s stupid”.

I am a student at the University of life, and I have learned that when you fail to understand your true values, people with a good command of a language will catalog you in a way that you will end up not just being their carbon image but crucially believing that your true self value derive from their opinions. As a student I have learnt that we are often surrounded by 3 categories of people, those who criticize us, those who compliment us, and those who middle critics and complements. Either way they will create a thought in their brain originated from some antecedents and name it after you. Sometimes it will be a positive thought, sometimes a negative one… But above all you are not a thought created by someone’s brain!

At the university of life, there is a subject: “who am I?” , “who do I want to be?” they taught me who I am, and who I want to be, not the kind of person my parents wanted me to be, that my friends want me to be, that my society thinks I am. But I am taught how to figure out for myself, what makes me unique from the rest of the world. No matter how crazy it may sound to others.

At the university of life, I gain experience, experience at seeing how some of those who want to know more/much about your life are actually those who not only criticize you much, but who unconsciously are insecure and jealous of you… Those who love listening to your dramas are actually those who perpetuate them, are actually those who bring you away from your true self, and who let you die step by step…Genuine friends don’t go around your problems, but they mirror your own insecurity, self doubt, fear, ignorance of the self, lack of presence, low self esteem. They won’t just support any decision you make since they know that any decision emitted from a low vibration is always regrettable, they will not oblige you to demand a better treatment from others or to teach others how to treat you since this is just approval seeking and feeding your own insecurity and self doubt.

However they will help you empower yourself to a point you will rise to a higher vibration of your self, and those who can’t emit in that frequency will naturally fade away. They will remind you how beautiful and great creature you are. They won’t wait around to see if you have taken or considered their advice or if your decision on XYZ meets their expectation. They won’t interfere in your decision making process. What they are truly concerned with is YOU & ONLY YOU. Not what you have, do, say, take, believe etc. Their relationship with you is not based on any antecedents.

One of the lecturers at the university of life taught us: there is nothing noble by being superior to your fellow men, but true nobility resides in being superior to your ego. He went on to say: Everyone is good and better at something, and thinking or believing that you are superior to your fellow man, simply because you are eloquent, pretty, wealthy, tall, strong, smart, whatever the adjective may be, is a proof of self betrayal and absence of self esteem.

At this university we learn of the danger consisting on thinking beyond some people’s capacity to understand you* is : rejection, solitariness, secludedness. When the relationship between YOU and YOURSELF is at peace, isolation, rejection, solitariness, secludedness become source of inspiration! One of the professors at this university (Mahatma Gandhi ) once said:
“Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you’re right and you know it, speak your mind. Speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth.”

Thinking out of the box is not just enough, ‘get rid of the box’, ‘be un-boxable’. That is what I have grown up to learn, getting rid of the box, this’s what I have learnt: After all, what would be the point of being on this earth if all we want to do is be liked by everyone and avoid trouble? The only way that you’ll ever get anywhere is by being un-boxable.
