I have realized a lot of what’s been happening in my life is because of other people. As a kid growing up, you don’t have much choice because you don’t know anything. You don’t have access to a lot of information and knowledgeable people. And who is to say who is knowledgeable or not as well?

Nowadays information dissemination is easier because of technology and the internet. People are much “smarter” now or more intellectual in a sense that they won’t believe everything you say unless you have proof or scientific evidence. And that in itself creates a whole lot of problems on it’s own. What about the cultural ways and beliefs? Most of them are not just based on hearsay but on experience. You don’t disregard such stuff just because there’s no scientific evidence. You don’t say there are no supernatural entities or beings just because we can’t see them. Although supernatural stuff have already been experimented on so i guess people have basis or some kind of proof in that regard.

Anyway what i’m trying to say is that whatever i have in my life right now are not because of what i wanted but because at the time these were the solutions being offered to people. I am referring to “silver” amalgam fillings. Nobody ever said it was bad at all. It was actually “helpful” because it patched up the teeth after removal of cavities. Nobody did say you shouldn’t take care of your teeth as well. As a kid your parents tell you to brush your teeth so you won’t get cavities. But is proper brushing taught? Who would think there’s a proper way of brushing your teeth at all unless you know a dentist personally or you have a relative or family friend who’s a dentist? But even then sometimes these topics are not really talked about.

Further research online will tell you that amalgam fillings will give you a lot of different diseases/illnesses. There are of course people contesting this fact. But even the American Dental Association i believe stopped promoting the use of amalgam fillings. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Generally speaking, those born in the 90’s or much recently are indeed luckier because now we have more information on whatever topic we are interested in. I guess it is much safer to live in this world in this cyber age than it was before. But it is also much more toxic than before. Whatever information we gather and learn are controlled information as well. Some people withhold the entire fact of the matter to avoid mass panic and such. But we would learn about it eventually. Someone somewhere would divulge the information that’s being kept from the public. Someone somewhere would discover something about certain things that we aren’t aware of. And those people would either be (1) brave enough to let a lot of people know about it ASAP or (2) just keep it to themselves and inform a few people they trust which of course could turn viral as well but a lot of misinformation can come from the latter unless someone then takes a hold of the issue for further investigation and study.

This may sound like a serious matter indeed. But as i was saying earlier, as a kid you don’t have much choice at all. You can only gain access to what is being given to you and what you see and hear and feel. But if you are not an inquisitive child and if you don’t have encouraging parents or if you have busy parents who are trying to make ends meet and make the world a better place you don’t really learn much from them but you go by learning from experience. One must ask a lot of questions to learn the answers, but then some answers are better learned when experienced as well.

Young couples i believe don’t know much about being parents. They just go with the flow and do what other people are doing. Or they ask their parents on how it should be done or their own parents are there to take their responsibilities for the young couples’ children. Some people are not ready to be parents yet they get into such circumstances because of our human needs.

There is much debate now about contraceptive methods and the religious point of view. Personally i do think sex education should be responsibly done. You don’t educate kids about sex just so they can freely enjoy doing it when they grow up without them being responsible for it. Where is the spiritual and moral obligation in that? Sex is not bad but it is misunderstood and misused. Contraceptive methods are there for safety, it’s like being on the defensive to prevent anything bad from happening. But that doesn’t mean just because it is accessible you can do anything you want. If you do that, it’s just like going out and getting soaked in the rain all the time and not caring because actually there are fever, cold and cough and other types of medicine (e.g. antibiotics) out there to make you better anyway.

The problem is, since most parents are always busy scrounging up for a living, they don’t have enough time to educate their children properly. That’s why they send kids to school right? But that’s not always the case. The child first learns at home and then outside it. Whatever is at home will be brought outside and whatever is learned outside is also brought inside (at home). So if there are more stuff learned outside than inside then what do you think that would mean? How would that affect everyone in the family? Don’t you think that is the source of a lot of problems and conflicts if your core (home/family) is not solid? This is where you’ll see the advantages of belonging to a family with good values, proper education and money as well. More money can mean more time with the family because responsibilities can be disseminated to other people. However more money can also lead to a lot of idleness and irresponsibility.

I do believe time and money is essential for a better life. Good morals and values are also essential but in this day and age it is hard to do and come by. Most people want instant gratification. I believe that is also one source of all evil. Moral people are usually scorned by peers and ridiculed by others. That is why i salute those brave souls who go against the grain of society to show us and prove us wrong.

Well i could go on and on but it won’t help anyone if each does not understand what i’m trying to say. It’s just that i find it hard to live because of what was done before. Earning money is not that easy for some people. But there is indeed a saying that anything is possible if you just believe it. And also “Kung ayaw may dahilan, kung gusto maraming pwedeng paraan“. But if you follow that saying, wouldn’t it mean forcing other people into something just to get what you want? What if it’s not meant for you and you force it to happen? Do you think that would be good? Persistence is indeed the key but what if it would not be good for everyone but yourself? As a person, you have to think of other people as well and not only of yourself. Balancing this is not always easy for  everyone

Maybe i should just take up sociology, physiology and anthropology then eh? Why? Because human behavior is really tricky. Humans are simple and yet so complex. We are not the product of our thoughts alone but also of our bodies. If your body is not healthy and lacking in nutrients you get all these diseases and illnesses – physical, emotional or mental. Our bodily conditions affect how we think and feel and act. It’s just not the mind or the spirit that makes us human. Even our interactions with other people get affected if we are not sound in mind, body and spirit.

You might think it’s just so serious thinking about such stuff and that i shouldn’t bother with such but if this is how we all think then we won’t move forward and grow at all. Having fun all the time has it’s benefits but in the long run i don’t think it’s more beneficial or productive for everyone. Humor is indeed important in balancing us as human beings. Ah, so you see how complex we human beings are? We are simple yet we complicate things.

Okay i think this is enough for now. So i’m going to end it here.

On a lighter note, i just realized or learned the purpose of capitalizing the first letter of each sentence. ^_^ That’s so you won’t get confused when reading. It’s easier to read sentences when the first letter is capitalized. It separates each thought sentences and makes it easier, as i said earlier, to read and also to comprehend. Nobody ever said the reason why we needed to capitalize the first letter of each sentence. You might say it’s common sense but hey that’s not always the case. You need to experience stuff to learn but you also have to be careful when doing anything.

I guess life is just a series of experiments.
