Schools teach us how to solve a pair of simultaneous equations, but they don’t necessarily teach us how to solve the actual problems we face in life. Our parents tell us not to indulge in being in a relationship during high school, but don’t necessarily teach us how to strike a healthy balance between our life and academics. We are taught that if we work hard in the present and give it our all, we are likely to have a bright future. But we aren’t taught how to react to an issue that could occur in the future. We have been told to stay away from all risks and problems in life, but not taught to face them head-on and solve them. We have been conditioned into following a set of norms and running on the same damn path, as if a journey we could make for ourselves, will never be successful.
