Is Porn Your New Best Friend? [Guest Post by Jothish Joseph]

Adolescence, the age of boiling blood. Well, that’s how people describe youth. However, there is a lot more to youth than just the energy and enthusiasm of young blood.

We are passengers on a train named the 21st century. We humans are making huge strides in the field of science and technology. Just look at the smartphone market, there was a time when we would go to a shop to buy a Nokia phone(there was no other brand we trusted), but times have changed, now there are so many brands around, and so many options that buying a smartphone has started to resemble clothes shopping (almost always unsatisfied).

Change is permanent, but there are some changes we need to ponder upon and act in a way that makes us better people in the long run.

There have been many transformations in the recent years. We can now do things which our ancestors never dreamt. It’s good to be proud of our achievements but have we in the hurry forgotten our morals and values? This is a question I have asked myself for a long time now. Have we in the process of achieving greatness forgotten the difference we hold in comparison to animals?

The Internet, if I was to make use of metaphors, this is how I would describe it: a buffet! We have seen what a buffet is, there are so many dishes, but there are some we love (and consume more) and some we prefer not to spend time trying to love.

The internet is like a tropical rain forest.

There is so much to it, good and bad, however, it seems the growing buds are addicts to the bad aspects of the internet.

Let’s take, for example:-

PORN

These days people say that watching porn is totally normal, but if you don’t, it seems you are not normal.

only 3% of boys and 17% of girls have never seen internet pornography

 

Here is my question to all those people who think so, if it was normal you wouldn’t be hiding this fact from your parents, you wouldn’t be watching it all alone by yourself, you wouldn’t be trying to hide it the moment someone sneaked into your room! And you wouldn’t be afraid to see it in a public place.

If we analyse the statistics the situation is really alarming.

Brothers and sisters, life is so beautiful, you will be amazed to see how dynamic and incredible this world is. I can make you feel that. Just follow these simple steps: Close your eyes and just bring back to your mind the best memories of your life. Forget about what you are doing now, just you and your memories! I can guarantee you that a little smile will be born on your face. You will ask yourself, I was so happy, why have I changed? It’s time to realise guys that it’s you who have chosen to watch the sad episodes of life.

Things get worse when we choose to be conservative and happy being alone. We have forgotten that man is a social being, we just can’t be like a distant island that will be happy forever being alone. We need friends (real ones), parents and well-wishers to constantly nurture us and help us grow into a fruitful tree.

Pornography is a castle made of cards, it might look promising, but it is not!

Like those election manifestos charted by the political parties. No one can be a permanent addict and still be happy forever because that’s the law of nature, you can’t be a villain and end up being victorious over the hero.

I have read various articles recently and talking to some people made me realise that we tend to tilt towards porn when we feel lonely, wasted, and seem to be the unhappiest man alive.

Feeling sad is perfectly normal, but sadness that is inflated by purposeful revisits will not yield anything normal. When such a situation knocks on your door, just take a moment of your life to look at the people and happenings around you. You’ll notice that not everyone around you is entirely happy or sad, some are in fact in a worse situation, but are still courageous to face the challenges that come their way. Then why are you so disheartened?

Watching porn and doing wrong deeds might be a trend but remember, trends keep changing but you will still be YOU. Stop following trends and start chasing goals, because your goal is your dream, it is your copyright, no human and no habit should be an obstacle in your venture.

When we grow old, no one is ever going to ask you about what sins you have committed, they will only ask you about your achievements and your golden memories that are imprinted on the walls of your heart.

I know it’s not easy to drastically change habits, but it isn’t impossible. Initially, it will be really difficult, but if you are determined and really trust you abilities, time will fly and before you know it your life will be a totally different tale.

My teacher once told me when I was in primary school that, the world outside is entirely different, you will be standing in the midst of innumerable temptations, but you must learn to say no.

If you learn to say No to something wrong, it will come to a dead-end there.

Otherwise, you won’t even realise how far you have strolled in the path towards destruction.

It’s the age of computers and smart gadgets, they are essential but never restrict your world between them, talk to each other, lighten each other’s burden, share your joy (especially your near and dear ones) and see how beautiful and satisfying your life will turn out to be.

Every question has an answer and every problem has a solution.

So stop cursing and start living.

I am like you: one head, two hands and two legs. The only difference between me and others is that we just cannot be substitutes for each other. Medicine is my ambition but I never fail to explore new horizons because life has taught me that satisfaction is never the hallmark of an achiever. Sharing our knowledge and experiences is the best way to expand and nurture our uniqueness. That is why blogging is another growing tree in my garden.
