Is anything replaceable?

via Daily Prompt: Replacement

So, this word ‘REPLACEMENT’ it kind of really intrigues me. Is anything or anybody really replaceable? Well, that is a million dollar question that I have always pondered about.

Even God in his own way has made everybody unique. Many people might say there are twins who look alike. Then there is that famous theory of the doppelgangers. Still even if anybody looks same or might behave mostly the same as other that does not mean they are the other. In true words “Nobody can replace anybody”.

The one thing that keeps me in awe of itself is that, there are billions of people inhabiting this planet Earth and some people do look alike but we all have different fingerprints. So imagine billions of people but no single pattern that occurs twice. God has created a masterpiece and each masterpiece has a unique identification key as their fingerprint. No one is a copy of anyone. This is just one inevitable truth about everyone being unique but the real thing is what makes you unique is YOU.

I for one would never enjoy a copy of an original. The copies have their own advantages but what copy can suffice an original. It is like living in a cocoon which looks like a paradise after seeing an actual paradise or tasting something that tastes like ambrosia but its not the original ambrosia. So,would anybody legitimately feel satiated with a copy of an original after experiencing and being in thrall of “THE ORIGINAL”?

Everything that is replaced in our life at-least for me definitely leaves a void behind which cannot be fulfilled by anything or anybody else. You can definitely make that hole grow lesser in size over a period of time but you cannot replace it wholly and that is indubitably true.

I remember I was having this talk with one of my friends where she felt that she is not being valued enough to be easily replaced by someone else. Even though one may feel that other people might concur with this general idea of replacing them by somebody else but the truth is, they are only replacing a quality or virtue in you by someone who can either quickly imbibe that, imitate that or already has that virtue or quality. So no matter how much anybody belittles you or disheartens you don’t let that get to you. You are a person of your own and nobody can replace that person solely.

Even a small gift given by someone cannot be replaced. So I don’t believe anybody or anything is completely replaceable.One can only substitute a minor part of that whole.
