Death is imminent and lurks around our vicinity each time we step in or step out, so when death has this immenency factory to it , we are pressurized both by the society and our conscience to fill our short life spans with rights .
Rights as in the right thing to do , the right way to go and the right things to choose .
Lets face it right from the beginning of life as we know it , it has been shoved down our throats even by pop culture which has always been popularised as the devil’s advocate and by superheroes , soap operas and boooks to always do the right even if that means you lose out . Doing the right thing is what makes the good guy good right ?
But you know why the ratio of good guys to bad guys are so miserably decimal , it is because doing the right thing sucks .
I know for a fact that the person who had this thought of instilling in our minds the right thing to do must have been a melancholic person who had one thing going for him for sure no matter whatever else went south , a guilt free conscience.
WHY ? Because doing the right thing is almost always self sacrificial . You do it even though you kill a little part of yourself doing it .
And that leaves you melancholic but you get a guilt-free conscience.
If that’s the bargain you consider profitable then like me you are going to be melancholic , my friend .
