Of Puppets and Puppet Shows

A lot has happened and changed since I last posted anything here.

I have aged (can't help that, can I?).
I have more sins and probably some virtues to my credit than before.
I have a proper job now, probably the sort of position that a fresh graduate always desires.
I have made more friends, and probably lost some old ones (no one died, it's just that they got bored of me or vice versa).
I have more balance in my bank account (Yay).
And a lot of other things happened too, which are probably way too important or way too banal to be mentioned here.

So why exactly am I posting here after this elongated period of hibernation?
Still figuring out the answer for this one.

So the other day I came across this superb quote by German Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche (I love quotes btw):

"He who cannot obey himself will be commanded."

And it makes sense, like a lot of sense. Indecisive and naive people depend on the judgement and orders of others. At some point in my life, I was also a part of this category. But then, to my good luck, I changed. How? I don't know. Just miraculously happened overnight probably. But if you really try to absorb this quote, you'll feel a difference, trust me. We are not born to be puppets. This life is not supposed to be a puppet show. No one has the right to control the strings of someone else's life and actions. The problem lies with the puppet as well, not just the puppeteer. Why let anyone else have control over you in the first place?

Try and think about this, till I post something else. Hopefully, I'll write again. Until next time Fellas.
