Do you know Relife manga? I enjoyed reading it because it taught me a life lesson. It is about a man who takes program to change him back to a teen in order to change himself as a better man. As the story goes on, he lives his re-life his as a high school student. There are so many lesson that I learned from the manga. On this occasion I want to share some lessons. Following the story, I think it will finish soon. The main character finally understood the purpose of re-life program and life itself.
At first, he didn’t want the program ended. He hated his old life and didn’t want to come back to his previous life as an adult. I think it was a human’s nature to run from the reality. All of us had our own problem and when we thought we couldn’t solve it, we choose to run away instead of fighting and solving out problem.
Back to the manga, the main character wanted to get rid of his old self as the old him was a loser. I think all of us have an unwanted past that if it was possible to erase it from our life, we would do it happily. However, realized or not, all of our past creates us at the present. Not only the happy moments, but the painful ones do have a part in creating the today us. It’s all the good and bad things that happened in your past that makes you who you are today.
Without the imperfect part of our life, we never stand on here today. The failure makes us try harder so that in the end we can do everything better. All things happened in our life is happened for our sake. Be grateful for all of them.
The second one that I learned is that our life is very short to begin with. Our life is limited. It is our choice to decide how we spend our time. We have an option to do nothing as everything we did will vanish someday when we leave our life or we can choose to do our best in order to leave a beautiful legacy for our surrounding. Doing nothing is safer than trying to do something as in the end we have a same result, that we will end our life. Doing nothing gives us advantage as we will not feel anything, while trying to do something will make us exhausted and if we fail, we will feel painful. But, it is actually what we want? Will we want to do nothing? Of course not. Our life is too precious to be spent for doing nothing. For me, I just want to not regret my life in the future because I didn’t do the things that I should do.
That was my life lesson… how about you?
