MY IDEAL PERSONALITY
Since I was in kindergarten, our teacher used to make us write essays on topics Quaid-e-azam, Fatima Jinnah, Allama Iqbal, and General Zia-ul-haq. But none of them could be called as my ideal personality. My ideal personality is ‘Shaitaan’. Some call him Iblees, Satin or Devil. It has many names. I know it’s a sin to idealize him. But we all are committing this sin without even realizing it. An ideal personality is the one whose footsteps we follow. Just think about it for once, do we follow the footsteps of Quaid or Allama Iqbal? NO. Do we do what they told us to do? NO. Then why we always lie about it and teach our children to do the same. Satin was God’s most favourite angel but when he refused to obey God’s command he was cursed by GOD and angels. Then he promised God he will misguide all human beings till the end of time and look he is fulfilling his promise look at his determination. And we are puppets in his hands. Whatever he promised to do he is doing it no matter what. That’s what is called determination. We humans always look at the negative side of the picture if we are truly idealizing him and following his footsteps, why don’t we follow his strong will and determination. We just curse him when something bad happens instead of fighting him. If we just accept our faults and perceive everything positively we can change the meaning of life.
