Do You Know The Central Theme Of The Story?

“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next.

Delicious Ambiguity.”

― Gilda Radner

Life has no perfect beginning, middle, or end. It’s a continuum that keeps on running through eternity. We don’t know the exact time and space from where we started our journey and have no idea of the end.

We’re somewhere in the middle, but that can also be the beginning or end of life’s story. There is no fixed central theme.

Our work is not to judge someone’s life story as success or failure. Every person is doing their best based on their understanding, experience, and knowledge at any given moment of the day.

We’re no one to comment on the central theme of a person’s life story. We can’t understand the situations that shaped a person’s perspective about life. We must be willing to present our ideas with humility.

We’ve no idea why life presents the details in front of her, so she becomes pessimistic. Arrogance is not a virtue. Hence we must be willing to listen to her life story as narrated by her.

We often don’t know exactly where we’re going but still have no choice except to go nowhere. Indeed, we’ll land somewhere and may say that her struggles inspired the central theme of my life story, but honestly, we never experienced or understood her story.

All we did was a theoretical exploration of the human mind. Who knows, the theory was wrong in its approach.
