Your door is knocked violently, your name is called loudly and they order to open the door. When you open the door, you see two firefighters. They enter your house and begin to search the house to find your books. When they find the library, they poured the gasoline into the library and make it burn. What would you do?
This is how the world we read in Fahrenheit 451 works. Firefighters aren’t responsible for putting out fires, but starting fires themselves. This is a world that reading book is prohibited.
While reading this book, I hugged my books. I can’t imagine a life without my books. Something would allways be missing. Just like our main character said ” We have everything that we need to be happy. But we are not happy. There is something missing. I am looking around and the only thing that lost around me is the books that I burned.”
This book is an incredible dystopia that books turn into heros.
It is a work that contains sharp criticisms of oppressive systems and censorship. If you haven’t read this book, I highly recommend you to read Fahrenheit 451.
Once upon a time I heard a sentence in a Tedx talk. I don’t remember who said it or what was the topic but I remember the sentence “anxiety is the cancer of the brain.”
Such a deep and meaningful sentence. If you don’t have anxiety, you may not understand what it actually means. Hope you can’t understand it.
It is hard to deal with yourself when you are tired of yourself. That’s what you feel when anxiety attacks hit you.
It is like you have two different brains. One of them is you that everything is stable and there is no concern about possibilities. The other one is darkness with full of negative ideas.
The worst part of it is that you don’t know when it hits you. It can happen any time. While you are having fun with your friends or familiy, meeting with your collegues, in the middle of a conversation, during the day, at the middle of the night.
You may feel tired and it is not gonna end. You may feel tired and alone.
Don’t give up. You can control it. Anxiety is not more powerfull than you. You should know that you are not alone. I have it. Maybe one of your neighbour, your student, your teacher, your parent, a famous actor etc. They might have it.
I know finghting against your brain is tiring but you are your own medicine. When you feel desperate, remember that you are the only one who always stays is yourself. That’s why be good to yourself.
It will never completely end but you can get over it.
