Is all bias bad?

We live in a society that forces us to be biased on almost everything around us . Fat Vs thin , rich vs poor , good job vs average job , marriageable age , education etc etc etc.

Yes as a generation we are trying to move beyond such biases as we have seen over the past so many years but it’s a slower process than what we really do need.

We need to come out of the regular thought process of having a certain kind of life according to everyone around us . We are made to realise that amidst all the competition around us we need to think out of the box to stand out but when we do the percentage of people who actually believe in the risk we want to take narrows down considerably.

This makes us realise everyone around us will always be contradictory till the time we don’t make them confident about our ideas or our thought process.

At the same time it is important to be biased towards certain elements around us as well not to harm or hurt anyone but to ensure we don’t get harmed as well.

Like one should be biased towards their family for their well being , their work in order to prosper as well as their own life in order to remain happy.

We as Indians have forgotten that life is very unpredictable and we give importance to issues that don’t even need to be a part of us . It is probably because we live in a society where happiness has become so materialistic that it roots from making others jealous / envious about the life we lead rather than actually taking control of the life we lead and making everyday count.

Being biased for your own good is not wrong but being biased at the cost of living freely is a choice you make and one that you will regret.
