Every Cloud Has A silver Lining

‘Every cloud has a silver lining’- the most contradictory idiom, according to me. It is one of the most popular sayings which means never lose hope, difficult today leads to better tomorrow. The origin of the idiom traces back to 1634 and was given by John Milton.

After this, so many similar meaning idioms came such as, ‘After storm comes the calm’, ‘whatever happens, happens for good’,’every negative occurrence has a positive aspect to it’ etc.

Well those bad times can be well compared to the clouds.But sometimes those dark clouds just lead to a big storm which leaves huge destruction. The destruction caused is irrevocable. Even if it could be reverse, it just takes a lot of time and sometimes leaves permanent damage.  The damage caused is heartbreaking and sometimes leads to death.

The dark clouds revolving around the mind can be depressing. It is up to a person how they shoo the dark clouds away so the Sun can shine happily again. It is the time when everything feels irritating and you just don’t feel like doing anything. Deep inside there is a realisation that it’s just simply waste of time and you are the one who has to put that realisation to action. It requires will power. Just take an initiative. It’s easy to say than do. But trust me, the same is happening to me. Just waiting for the storm to get over. It’s even more frustrating when you forcefully do a work but that is the first step.

I may find the idiom contradicting and not so true but there is no harm in trying. I guess the storm will be over soon and I will see the Sun shining again.

Feminism or Feminarcissism?

Is feminism these days narcissism?

This is a sensitive topic to talk about. These are my view points after what I observed. Feminism- It is a term coined in 1890s which means women’s rights to equality of sexes. This term was introduced to down throw the rule of father which is paternalistic society. Women at that time had no right to make their choices and later they realised if they unite they can promote equality of sexes.

But these days definition of feminism has been changed. Is it feminism or ‘feminarcissism’? All the progress made is going in vain. People laugh at the word feminism. Which actually meant to bring equality but some feminists are trying to bring superiority which is not right. You don’t need to remove clothes in order to show feminism. Its not feminism when you give up your dignity.

Many wouldn’t agree with my viewpoints but feminism has become a joke. People termed the word ‘feminazi’ to mock at the weird behavior of some feminists. They try to supress men which is entirely opposite of what feminism actually means. They are behaving like those supressing men who treated women like objects.

Its high time that we continue with the progress rather than taking a U turn.
