Swachh Jeevan – 5 Rules of Handling Shit in Life

For months now, I have been paying attention to how shit works. (One tends to do that, when one receives a lot of it in a short span of time) After careful observation and analysis. I have created these Rules/Reminders to better manage the shit coming my way.

Rule No 1 – All normal, healthy humans carry shit in their gut most part of the day and night. So if you are feeling full of shit,  you have reason to celebrate! After all, it is a sign that your are perfectly healthy.

Rule No 2 – Shit has to come out sooner or later – No one can store shit in their gut forever. If your mind and body are healthy,  you will tend to dispose it more easily than others who are not as healthy.

Rule No 3 – You don’t have to catch shit someone throws at you – Human instinct tells us to always catch what is thrown at us (Often, in an attempt to throw it back to its rightful owner). Whenever you feel like catching someone else’s shit, remember you are not a dog. You have a choice to move away and completely avoid the shit altogether. Also remember, it is always easier to mop shit from the floor than from your own body.

Rule No 4 – Shit attracts shit – The more shit you catch from others, the more shit you are likely to receive. After all, everyone is looking for ways to easily dispose their own pile.

Rule No 5 – People only start throwing shit when they are too full of it themselves – Most healthy humans are capable of relieving shit, without overflowing with it. However, in some cases when the body produces more than it can dispose, they might end up spitting it on people around them. At such times, remember the problem is not with you but with them. They simply need help to clear their system.

If you feel this is all bull shit, simple, don’t catch it. If you feel these rules make sense, think about them and add yours to the list. I will surely try and remember them.

With this, I think I have used the S**t words enough number of times to last my lifetime. I hope I don’t have to say it, write about it, throw it or catch someone else’s ever in my life again.
