Reflection on Tuesdays With Morrie
Just finished reading Tuesdays with Morrie and I’m inspired.
Here are some lessons I learned from his story:
- Love is the only rational act.
- Detachment is necessary in dealing with emotions but only after fully feeling that emotion first.
-Full attention makes life rich; many are stuck in a sleep-like state their whole lives.
-Many revert to physical escape as a way to “get away” from things they don’t like. One can create their own subculture within any mass culture; every culture, no matter where you are, will have its problems.
-One should set aside a little time for their own self mourning, if self pity be necessary. Other than that, there are many others that need help much more, and giving that help will give oneself a much better sense of importance and impact on others than self pity will. The relationships you create define the importance you have and the impact you make on the Earth after you leave.
I’ve been reflecting on this for the past few days and I want to work to exemplify what Morrie stood for. After all, the book was written in hopes of that very act. To let the young know this wisdom to better use their time, effort, and love.
