One need not always be fly(ing) high in life.Yes, even I want to fly high and reach out for the stars. But looking around and seeing the world with a realistic prism, I can say that everyone cannot fly high always, even with hard work and effort.
In, today's world the pressure to perform is enormous, so much so that children who have not even 'lived' their life are committing suicide because they did not get good marks. Parents set such high targets for children that they have forgotten to give their own children their treasured childhood (that's lost forever running behind ranks).
Young couples, siblings, fight, separate or even plot to kill because they want all the money, get rich overnight so that they can fly high in life. In the rat race to fly high, many young dynamic people in their 30s are having heart attacks, taking to drugs, alcohol, taking up crime as a shortcut, fight a losing battle with stress and depression.
Seeing and hearing all this, Yes, I want to fly high, but I want to 'live' my life too. So, I will aim to do so, if I can't come out fly (ing) high in life, it doesn't matter, at least I will be walking consistently in life being healthy, happy and most importantly, being alive.
