I watched a movie some time back called 17 again, in which the main character of the movie was not happy with his life and nobody around him was happy with him. Suddenly one day a miracle happens and he becomes 17 again and he gets the chance to relive his live and rectify the mistakes which he made. He got the chance to choose his career and passion over love and other things.He could have changed his decisions but he didn’t. He repeated what he did all those years ago. He made the same choices when he became 17 again even when he had the prior knowledge that all those decisions will led him to a poor life.
So, what was it that made him take that decision? Was it just love? I would say love is a part of that feeling which may have forced him to take that decision.
More importantly it’s the happiness, it makes him happy to make those choices. To be with someone you love gives you happiness like nothing else. Further, it reflects his personality. We are the choices that we make, even when we know that some choices will not give us fruitful results, we still back those choices, thinking that some miracle will happen and our choices will come good. We want our choices to succeed because they are the representation of what we are.All of us what to live our life in our terms and want to happy. So, even when someone tells you that the in future your decision will be proved wrong, you still won’t give up the idea that there is still a possibility that your choice could be right.
In this case though he knows that the choices he made were not good but he still believes in them and sticks to them because this decision will always make him happy. Science has no proof but we believe in god. We know that there is no Santa but we still let the kids believe it and sometimes we know that someone doesn’t love us but still pretend not to notice it.There are some things in life which you want to be right even when you know it’s not because you believe in them ;)
PS – I would repeat the same choices if I’m 16 again.
