this too another post that disappeared, so here's it paired with a caption from a different post that disappeared.
Here's the thing.
Everything we do is materialistic.
To people out there who say that relationships are materialistic, they are.
We'd be lying if we said that materialistic things don't make us happy.
We ourselves are materialistic, striving to make people happy, always.
Tell me, wouldn't you be delighted to have a bar of chocolate or maybe a new book, your favourite food be gifted to you?
Doesn't it make you happy to see beautiful skies?
Doesn't seeing puppies trying to figure out how to place their footing and slipping on their own feet make you smile a little, laugh maybe?
Don't all those movies make you cry, or overthink, or get intrigued, or feel elated?
Doesn't a good hug calm you down?
Don't we always feel how we do because emotions themselves strive to be materialistic?
You, me, everybody around you, we're pretty materialistic.
No matter how much we claim not to be.
We'd feel safer in some place and not in others, that's materialistic too.
Ideas, mindsets, everything.
So if you want to throw hate for people liking a different kind of "materialism". You're welcome to.
Because that in itself is materialistic.
And this is why it leaves me confused as to why we criticise things we ourselves do, maybe differently but we do.
I'm sure this too will call for criticism, for everything materialistic does.
It's okay to want things.
Yet, it's funny how we criticise people for wanting what they want.
Just a thought. A perspective.
The criticism is one too.
And that's why criticism too, is okay.
Not good or bad.
Like every other thing, pros and cons exist and pros and cons need not be same for different people.
Because there it is again, perspective.
