The Law of the Garbage Truck

And suddenly the sentence "The Law of Garbage Truck" resounds in my mind as I was watching a fight on a busy traffic road. I recalled a friend of mine who once way back sent me a SMS describing the "Law of Garbage Truck", yes you heard it right the SMS as it was way back in the time when messaging apps weren't invented.
Today for the very first time I looked it up at the internet and found that it's an article by David J. Pollay, a writer. He describes it as follows.

“Many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they look for a place to dump it. And if you let them, they’ll dump it on you. So when someone wants to dump on you, don’t take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Believe me. You’ll be happier.”

I have always remembered the essence of Law of Garbage Truck but didn't know how exactly it was described.

Marriages

Today when we were having snacks at office canteen. A newly joined girl in our group( a bunch of friends having the same experience as me, we take lunch and snacks together) told us that she got engaged and soon she'll be getting married. Every other girl were like aw wwwww!!!! woww!!!, show us pictures of him, where is your ring? where will you going to get married? Is it arranged or love? What will you going to wear? Where will you go for honeymoon? Oh! that ghagra is beautiful. Aren't you lucky to get marry near a sea in puri.
And then she said her fiance is from IIT and currently working in a startup and planning to create his own company, everyone's face was just light up and all were like oh wow you are one lucky girl.

There is nothing wrong in this the yet to be bride was happy and every girl was happy listening to her.
But what concerns me that none of the girls asked her these, How good the guy is? What's his nature like? Do you love this guy? Do this guy lov…

Happiness is Rain

Image
These days are going quite rough for me. I don't understand why life always gives me lemons all the time and I still can't make lemonades out of them. I run for happiness and all I could get is just the same old familiar sadness. Maybe this is all I am doing wrong, I am running for happiness, I should just let it come to me. But then again I ponder that trying is everything if you don't try for something how you are supposed to get it? Maybe I am running for the wrong kind of happiness. Maybe happiness is just in front of me but the one for which I am running could be a fake one.  Then again a voice comes from my think tank, Is life is all about achieving happiness or one can live a beautiful life with sadness also?  Don't you think life is extremely complicated and we waste our whole life understanding it? We even go beyond and try to control it. Somewhere we know that we can't actually understand life but even though we try to understand it, we try to control our l…

Hedgehog's dilemma

Image
I like this fable a lot. This fable tells us about relationships and how would you describe the best relationship. Sigmund Freud, father of psychoanalysis has used this situation in the fable in his analysis of challenges of human intimacy.
This fable is about the dilemma faced by a group of Hedgehogs (Porcupines).


" It was the coldest winter ever.  Many animals died because of the cold. The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together to keep warm.  This way they covered and protected themselves, but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions.  After a while, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen.  So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth.  Wisely, they decided to go back to being together.  They learned to live with the little wounds caused by the close relationship with their companions in order to receive the warmth that came fr…

A beautiful Journey

That was a terrible day for me. I went to the city Bhopal by a Bus at morning to complete some documentation work of prime importance in an Government office but due to some reason it didn't work out well and till the evening I was devastated. I was sad and again boarded on a Bus to travel Home (Indore) at around 6:30 pm. It takes around 4 hours to reach at Indore.  I worry a lot about my life. A lot of bad things happened before, things didn't work out the way I wanted to, well not everyone’s' life is a bed of roses. But I think about them a lot and make myself sad. That night was quite different for me as I was experiencing something like this for the very first time. It's august, monsoon is at its peak. Sun is quite shy these days, hides behind the clouds throughout the day. It’s been several days since the sunlight falls upon us. I don't like monsoon much. There's water everywhere. The road becomes sort of river and the "mud" is just the nature…

How to screw up your life?

1. Make someone else the center of your happiness.  2. Live in the past. 3. Marry primarily for sex. 4. Study primarily for money. 5. Spend primarily to impress. 6. And when it all goes wrong, argue primarily to blame others. 7. Don't learn from your mistakes. 8. Care too much about what others think of you. 9. Try to please everyone. keep changing yourself just to impress others. 10. Chase your dreams but refuse to acquire the skills and techniques you require to achieve them. You will just fail over and over and look like a complete moron while doing it. 11. Use people. After you're done with them, they will expose you and tarnish your reputation, just like you used them for their abilities. 12. Lie. Every lie will eventually be brought to light, and you will be exposed for who you truly are.  13. Refuse to open up to others. When you close yourself off to the world, you end up living a life full of loneliness.  14. Look down upon others. When you feel that you are superior to others, pe…
