I am not a Bon Jovi fan...but this song had hit me at the right time.
To begin with, I have been brought up in a conservative South Indian family, where everyone of us chose to thread a safe and conventional path. Be it career, marriage or anything...we always took the safe path. My parents never really enjoyed life. They probably never understood the true essence of life. At every phase they have sacrificed their desires for the sake of others. In a nutshell, they are living a life full of compromises.
I do agree that sometimes compromises needs to be made to make relationships and situations work. But then kab tak? I have seen my close ones- be it my parents, my brother or my close friends making compromises to make life easier. But the million dollar question is: Are they happy with their decision? I bet they are not.
All my minute observations coupled with Bon Jovi's song has brought me to a conclusion that I need to live my life to the fullest coz life is short. I ain't gonna live forever...I just want to live while I'm alive...coz IT'S MY LIFE!!!
