The Inner Struggles and Triumphs of ‘Me’ and ‘Mine’

“Facing your gaze, I wish I could disappear, as I cannot bear to live under your scrutiny. You are merely mine.” This is the poignant last sentence of the suicide note. The news from the previous day includes the tragic suicide of a young female doctor, overwhelmed by the pressures of work, family, and societal expectations. In the photo, the young woman is smiling. Her eyes are hidden. People are discussing. No one knew her. It’s a fragile career, an uncertain future. After achieving faith, people often take their own lives. Whether it’s due to a lack of it or an excess of other news, it gets lost in this news. There is new news in the market.

Life points the way to ‘mine’ and ‘yours’, whether it leads to the fulfillment or the lack thereof of ‘mine’ remains uncertain. The concept of ‘mine’ and ‘yours’ can be both comforting and painful, creating a balance of joy and sorrow, success and failure. The idea of possession is fluid, sometimes tangible in terms of beloved ones, relationships, etc., and sometimes applicable in the realm of material wealth.

Therefore, the process of relinquishing one’s rights can be difficult. Even though it is difficult to let go of possessions, people are often ready to sacrifice them for the greater good. However, the same cannot be said for relinquishing one’s ideas. People are afraid to give up their beliefs or part ways with someone or something. The fear of losing one’s identity, of becoming ‘mine’ in the eyes of the world, is daunting. The fear of not being ‘mine’ anymore can lead to extreme actions.

In the hands of the wealthy, the propensity for suicide is higher. This is because the wealthy have more assets to lose. The doubts within their minds lead to problems. The idea of the deprived ‘mine’ is now constantly being discussed. The concept of ‘mine’ and ‘yours’ is not just about possession; it also involves emotional wealth, memories of the past. The pain of giving up ‘mine’ or ‘yours’ to someone else is difficult. That’s why I believe that…

Life is not always fair; no one is truly free. Only ascetics are truly free. Even their ‘mine’ is a source of constant contemplation for peace of mind. Freedom from global thoughts. Isn’t this desire a cause of suffering? Isn’t this desire to free oneself from global thoughts a noble goal for the common man? Certainly, it is. Therefore, even ascetics are not free from the suffering of ‘mine’. By retaining our rights to ‘mine’, we can assert ourselves in various fields. But, to assert one’s own false knowledge, to leave it to someone else, is not easy. It is in this conflict between ‘mine’ and ‘yours’ that many experiences and feelings are lost, and arrogance often casts a shadow on other experiences and feelings. It is in this arrogance that even wealthy people commit suicide, despite having a 99% chance of profit. It is evident that…

The thought of ‘mine’ and ‘yours’ creates a struggle for us. How do ordinary people like us fare? Certainly not well. Therefore, I am afraid to lose. Therefore, I become ‘possessive’. This ‘possessiveness’ applies not only to loved ones, relationships, etc., but also to material wealth. Therefore, the simple act of asserting one’s rights can be an easy task. This time, however, it is not easy to let go of one’s false knowledge. It is in this conflict that ‘mine’ is often hurt, which can be seen as a form of positive hint.

Certainly, the word ‘arrogance’ carries a mostly negative connotation, but it also carries a positive connotation in many cases. Nevertheless, wherever there is suffering from ‘mine’, there is always a shadow of arrogance, even if it is not apparent. It is this arrogance that often leads to the destruction of human thought. Sometimes, out of excitement or helplessness, someone writes – ‘I wish I could disappear in front of your gaze. I cannot bear to live under your scrutiny. You are merely mine.’ and takes the final decision.

This inner conflict between ‘mine’ and ‘yours’ reflects a deeper struggle within human nature. It highlights our innate desire to possess and control, which can lead to possessiveness and ultimately, suffering. The fear of losing what we consider ‘ours’ drives us to cling tightly to our possessions, whether they are material or emotional.

In relationships, this possessiveness can manifest as jealousy, insecurity, and a need for control. It can strain relationships and prevent us from experiencing true intimacy and connection. Similarly, in our pursuit of material wealth, this possessiveness can lead to greed, hoarding, and a sense of entitlement.

To overcome this inner conflict, we must learn to let go of our attachment to possessions and identities. We must cultivate a sense of detachment and learn to appreciate the impermanence of life. By letting go of our false sense of ownership, we can free ourselves from the cycle of suffering and find true peace and contentment.
