It is just another reality show, probably scripted too, but there is something that makes it close to our hearts. There could be many reasons why we feel that way about the show - We get to see the real stars and not the characters they portray on screen; We get to know their lifestyle, we see what they eat, hear their stories; how hygienic they are; what makes them cry and what makes them happy. Isn't that all we need to get to know someone? To live a life without basic technologies or sophistication, with people they have barely known is not an easy task. How long can you go without your phone or money of your own? How long can you live with someone whose plain sight makes you irritated? Of course, they are being paid to do so! But, by taking a philosophical angle, we can gather many important life lessons from Vijay TV’s Bigg Boss Show!
Don't let them get to you
It doesn't matter how positive you try to stay, there is always someone who wants to see you broken. They start a hate campaign against you, they do everything to make you feel small, they make you doubt yourself. When Tamil Bigg Boss season 3 started airing, one contestant who always made others uncomfortable was Vanitha. She invalidated others’ opinion, she yelled at them, she made groups and started badmouthing particular people at particular times. Almost all the people targeted by her let her get to them - be it Madhumitha, Abirami or Mugen- but Losliya did not. She made it a point to take a step back and analyze what is happening around her instead of just reacting to everything that comes her way. Be like Losliya - put logic and sense before emotions.
I am not calling anyone a sadist, but it is true that we like seeing people cry. Mainly because we love drama, but partly because we want to let go like them. We have been taught not to cry, not to be sad - as if it a bad thing to be or inauspicious. But in truth, the strongest people cry the most. Strong people are not scared to showcase their emotions, unlike others. It is okay to let someone see you cry because that doesn’t make you less of a person. This has been proven so many times in the show. We have seen every single person in the Bigg Boss house cry including Kavin, Sherin, Mugen, Losliya an even Cheran. So, cry whenever and wherever you want! Be vulnerable!
‘Tiny man, huge ego’ they say. Not to body-shame anyone, but it is to be understood that a person who is full of himself is a small human being than others, for he cannot think for anyone else but him. They never apologize, never realize their mistake and somehow think they are always at the right - some borderline or extreme narcissism could be the only explanation for this behaviour. But, contrary to what we see in our real life, the contestants in the house never hesitate to apologize once their mistakes are pointed out. Sherin apologizing to Mugen for snapping, Sandy apologizing to Madhumitha and many such incidents can be cited as examples!
Appreciate little things!
How many of you remember Dharshan yelling ‘cupcakes’ every time the luxury budget groceries list was up? Only after two or three weeks of yelling, he got the cupcakes he wanted! I bet Dharshan himself wouldn't have known he would be yearning to eat cupcakes before going into the house. Only when you lose something you love, you will realize how much you need them. The tiny surprises the inmates receive like chocolates, snacks and clothes make them light up! However, outside in the real world, nothing can satisfy us! Isn't it only valid to ask you appreciate little things while they last?
Be a team player!
The Bigg Boss contestants are always subjected to compete against one another - sometimes individually, sometimes in groups. What we have to note here is that they don't get to choose their group, which means they will also be put into groups with their enemies. Ultimately, when it comes to the task, none bothers about their relationship with one another, they just give their best! They work together to reach their team to success.
You cannot learn something you are not anticipating to learn. These ideas may seem far from your range now but it may come of good use someday. After one hundred days inside the house, one strong-willed person is going to emerge as the winner. Their friends, family, and fans outside are eagerly waiting for that day to come to celebrate it with crackers and fireworks. It won't matter whether the season finale will be aired during the off-season, because one can always buy crackers online.
