Uncertainty and unpredictabilityWe all have experienced until now that there are surprises on every path. Things do not go the way we want them to. As time is progressing, life is becoming more uncertain and unpredictable. For example, earlier too, there were these factors. However, they did not bring the surprise element to this extent. Whenever someone got a job, his future was secured. He might not have to hunt for another one until retirement. Whenever two people married each other, their marriage lasted. It is untrue that everything went smoothly for them. Whether it was a job or married life, obstacles did arrive and surprised them. However, they could solve all the puzzles and came out victorious.
Today, everything is uncertain. No matter how good a profile is, job security cannot be guaranteed. The span of a relationship cannot be guaranteed. Also, there is uncertainty in weather conditions. Who might have thought that we might have to face coronavirus pandemic for so long this year? Whether it is our volatile economies or concerns about our physical and mental health, everything is getting unpredictable, and uncertainty revolves around them.
Why do we want everything to be predictable? It is because we crave for emotional freedom which lies in certainty. Uncertainty surprises us and challenges us. We may not know how to tackle the challenges. Fear of not being equipped is dangerous.
Many members here have seen the world-changing. Do you feel it has changed enormously, and the uncertainty factor has overshadowed everything? Or is everything the same as it was in the earlier times?
