ON THE NOTION OF NARCISSISM

If I were to be a narcissist I will assume that the world is mine, I will have extreme pride in myself, no one will be relevant to me. I will consider myself always, my ego will be extremely high. This is the concept of narcissism.” – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

Note: I will assume myself to be a narcissist in this article for proper understanding.

In this concept, it will always be the “I” in every aspect of life. I will always want to be a protagonist or an important person in all spheres of life. I will not admit my mistakes, instead, I will cast the blame on others. What is life, if not my existence only, I will play my games anyhow, afterall, no one can probe me. If that should be the case, I must always remember that the unknown cause is always at work, if I live for today, how about tomorrow? If it is “I”, it is  making sense, I have made my life rigid in such a way that nobody can suggest anything whether good or bad. Life is something to me whereas, it is regarded as nothing. As a matter of fact, if I were to be narcissist all what I will be clamoring for is to be at the pinnacle of everything. Even  if, it involves human sacrifices thus, I have nothing to lose. I will be willing to expand my coast beyond, since I have assumed that all human beings are below. My irrelevances will be  relevant within me, not to all, my heart will beat faster than ever before. I have conceived that the world is mine already,thinking, I would take the world wherever I am going to. How about death? Where am I going?.

Narcissism is different from Egoism. As the former connotes, extreme pride while the latter conveys, self interest.” – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

As a matter of fact, narcissism is different from egoism. Every man is an egoist, you tend to consider yourself in all aspects before others. That is a normal circumstance. But a narcissist will always take his or her own interests extremely. If the world were to be “I”, it will make no sense, I will be left alone to build my own world without a divided labour. How will I survive? How will I reason? Who will I reason for?. At times, you tend to reason with  others which will yield an applaud, imagine you were to be the only one in this world. Who will applaud you? Stones? Yourself? Will it make sense?. I have disapproved different thoughts by people , because of my thoughts even, for my thoughts to be relevant I will need the approval of people to progress. How about that?. I want to enjoy my life smoothly without any interference, yet, I am always thinking of myself, what I will become in future is an action of today, if that is not the case, why am I planning?.

Only if a  narcissist would imagine that, there might  not be tomorrow, yet, the world is  permanent in a temporal form. – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

” I have played a role of a narcissist in this article, but, I am not a narcissist. I am not saying that to be a narcissist is bad, perhaps, who am I to judge. But, if critical thinking is to be permitted you will know the right path “—– Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

“THE ELDERS ARE NOT MAKING SENSE”

“THE ELDERS ARE NOT MAKING SENSE”

Let this introduction be read carefully, respect should be given to ‘value’not ‘integrity’ . Moreover, the elders are still learning.” – – – – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

image

Are the elders still making sense? Who is to be blamed for this immorality? You are an elder but, the way you speak is like a child, this is not the case that you are not sensible but, you have failed to apply a commonsensical concept in the stride of life. You have ridiculed yourself in all ramifications thus, you tend to look for integrity which has been sent to the world of no return. As a matter of fact, you are seeking for your lost respect. This will be hard to get, may be, thinking will be of help, if you can utilize it. Your admonitions are not working again. What will you try? As time will  be no more to see your tears, reasoning is an avuncular to thinking, when you combine both, a turnaround might be seen. I am still worried about the sudden absence of these wise men. Where are they?  Where are their words of wisdom? Have they travelled? When will they return?

image

   Now, you want realism but, what you can get is idealism. What have you done to yourself? You have become a quantity display even, a quality display has no place to manifest itself. If something is not wrong, then, wrong will be silent. People who have been looking up to you are seriously disappointed, time is what can not be reversed. When I write, I want you to be in the game of thinking. The elders have joined the mantra of enjoyment, in such a way that, they can no longer correct the youths to straighten their ways. A shame is a shame, there is nothing like a good shame. It has been assumed, especially, in African traditional settings that the elders have the wise curiosity to change the society. But, this assumption should be changed, because the elders are at  sleep. What have they done to the society?

It is not the case that the elders are not making sense, but, if decadence is to be quenched, the elders must also quench themselves.” – – – – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

” SOCIETY : A DUNGEON OF NO RETURN”

” SOCIETY : A DUNGEON OF NO RETURN”

Even, if you choose to turn left or right, how about the middle way?  Society is everything and everywhere . The escaping route is also under the canopy called,” society. ”  How will you escape this? – – – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

  I was provoked by the miserable actions of the society which I can not exempt myself from, if I can, I would have preferred a world of my own. But, can I? Can you? As a matter of fact, the world will remain a realm to be fulfilled. At times, you  feel like opting out, perhaps, you can’t get out from this society. You tend to be tired by the castigation or condemnation of the society. If you are not free then, you are going no where, this is a dungeon of no return which I can not exempt myself from. As the analysis of the past will be visited, and the postulations of the present will be given a proper investigation. Society won’t give up on that, because invitation is part of their tools. Can you get out of this dungeon? This situation will be unsolved thus, getting out won’t be easy. How about that?

image

   What will you say about gossipers? What will you say about naysayers? How about friends who tend to be good with fake smiles? You have now become a vigilante that secures a village called, “society”. But, this doesn’t mean you will be appreciated, even appreciation might be far from them. I am writing with a vexation of the highest order coupled with the provocative actions of the society. What will I do? What will you do? They are just there to envy what they have not worked for, neither, can they know how everything started. Their maxim will be, “who cares”. If you bother about them, you might end up losing your life. Tears will not be seen, even those who are regarded as your intimate friends will extricate or escape themselves. If you think, this is not real, try death.  If you bargain with them, this might lead to betrayal. When will you be free from all these scenes?  Have you not thought of this?

I would have loved to continue writing, but, the society will also complain about this. Even, this statement is not safe”.—–Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

“A SLAVE TO LIFE”

“A SLAVE TO LIFE”

  “ Wait!  What are you trying to do? Do you want to commit suicide because life has been unfair to you?  Have you questioned your inner life?  Who told you you will be accepted in another place after your termination? These questions are to be answered subjectively or personally.”——-Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

    I am writing this article with an emotional goodness may  be life can eulogise or praise me for what I have been doing. But, I am sorry to announce that life doesn’t know anybody, because she acts as if she knows no one. At times, you tend to utter this statement, “ am I the only one”  also, I am not exempted from this particular act. When you are a slave to life, then, what can you do? Life has not restricted you to explore but, you are the one creating a limit, I am not saying that life doesn’t have a limit. Hence, there is nothing bad in trying. We are to rule life, but, life dictates all aspects, because the power of death is in life. What will you do if life is angry?

    Everyone is clamoring for freedom. How about the cage life has given you? If you can break out of life, then, you are free to see freedom, not that you are in freedom. Do not be confused with that utterance, if that is ingested and digested it will make sense. In our contemporary society, something sensible is not sensible, but, something senseless is sensible. When I write I give a space of thinking because I want the reader to put his or her self into the realm of actualization. Moreover, when you lack the self belief you will become a subordinate being who can’t stand to fight except he or she is supported. When will you eradicate that slavery concept? Tell life you want to succeed, in lieu of this, do not opt out.

    ” In our contemporary society, something sensible is not sensible, but, something senseless is sensible. All views can not be the same because approaches are different. As a matter of fact, time is so happy that we have been taken by irrelevance.” – – – – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

“A PAINFUL DEPARTURE”

   My only wish is to see them but, since the doors of the dead and living are not the same, I have decided to set my aim in gentility. Tears everywhere, if tears could be calculated it will be uncountable. I thought I can hide the feelings but it will make no sense if this is kept. If we walk around what we can perceive is loneliness even an identity can still be doubted. The vestiges  were created for one purpose: That will be an end to all.

   My main concern is that painful departure. I have lamented like a baby, I cried, thinking heavens and earth will assist me in waking and exhuming them yet, they looked at me scornfully. No renditions of help from anywhere, all I could see is my  family and society who tend to cajole me to act like man. Hence, I asked, “is it in the case of male and female?” 

  I  thought I  saw them, but a dream in a dreamland. The time has come to make a huge decision coupled with an autarchy of no  interventions. I am perturbed, perplexed, and disheartened with these stereotyped situations, if these were not arranged it would be amendable. They were taken spontaneously, this baffled me to keep asking questions  about their sudden exit. Well and truly, there are things hidden which are hidden in hidden, except hidden unveils itself, the problems wont be solved.

“late Mr and Mrs  Henry  Comfort Akinrulie will continue to be an epitome of huge significance. I will be looking forward to see them again, if there is another. I still have my belief, but  what I am feeling must not be felt by others. The glorious day  has been set aside, I will always love them ” – – – Akinrulie Opeyemi Joshua

  ” since there is a departure then, an arrival should be in existence “

“A GRAVE IS A GRAVE”

  At this moment, we may not buy a drink at an exorbitant price. Everything will become flexible and even bendable but, we must alert ourselves and let our consciousness be rebranded like an antique factory. The way I speak and write may look intractable but, is there anything too hard for mankind? We have pledged to do whatever it takes to establishing a journey that will be unquestionable but, things changed and we were endangered by different circumstances. We have myriad of songs but, not all, will be mellifluous. After exhausting a good music. What will be next?

     We once had a belief which became a uniqueness but, as time approaches we were distracted by pleasures that were also synonymous to success. What have we gained?  Sorrow or happiness?  Yet, we would laugh when other lives are demolished and short-lived. What will be our gain? As hopelessness will be found in hope, I guess she will be ready to define herself in order to proof her existence.

    When belief is taken, we would have nothing but an ordinary barrel with emptiness. Even if we advise them, they won’t listen to the maxim of hope because they have been destined for destruction. I have thought of it on several occasions, the answer I was able to find is, “the same as same”. If this is real then, we are wasting our time in this world. We are witnessing a supremacy whose intentions will be made known at end, if there will be an end. I know this analysis may not be objective but through subjectivism this can be made known to all. Actualising ourselves is so simple, instead of making the complex simple, we making the simple complex. Hence, it will be oxymoronic between ‘Complex and Simple’.
  As a matter of fact, we must not threaten ourselves with the same creation of nostalgia. Inventions are simple, only if we can think then, we can make the next phase of life expedient.

     “The faces we are seeing are fake but when an  originality is permitted. Sensibility will be concrete.”
