because sometimes letting go is a better option and it may lead you to something unexpected.
It’s not always what you think you’ll get that sometimes our expectations are unhealthy for ourselves. Our mind gets burdened with false hopes and when they’re left unfulfilled we start inhaling negative vibes.
Why can’t we breathe free, why can’t we give ourselves another chance, why can’t we smash the glass ceiling in the faces of those who had underestimated us , never trusted us. Why can’t we not become a free spirited soul ? Why before thinking of ownself we think about what would others say or think ?
There are as many mouths as much people. Everyone has to say something but that doesn’t mean you stop believing in yourselves, feel guilty about your deeds, don’t feel free to do your mind. Why do we stop ourselves ?
Why do we think twice of our decisions ? Why do marks or our social and financial status defines us ? Why is a short person always mocked about ? Why is a person with spectacles always thought as a geek ?
No one has the right to judge you merely on your physical appearance. This social stigma needs a change. A change begins with a change in the minds of a person.
When I was in my 10th standard and I had to choose my further course of studies. I choose medical, I wanted to become a cardiologist , this was because we had a family doctor around us and I admired him a lot. In 11th I came face to face with my decision. Those hectic tuition classes from morning to evening , those heavy books and some lots of other stuff burdened my head. The first term results made it clear that my destination was somewhere else.
Everyone started taking a toll on me. The air of discouragement and failure prevailed at that time. The guilt of spending so much money of my parents was bothering me, according to them I had wasted my 6 months. The society became horrible but thank God you have some really good people around you. My bunch of my people including some of my teachers, friends and my parents who guided and supported me and helped me focus through this low phase.
I decided on taking up humanities. No one else can tell me who I am. I have always made decisions and stood on them and my bunch has always supported me.
But distractions come uninvited. They came and left but my grades suffered. Later in my life distractions again re entered my life but this time they were unaware of my maturity and the art of tackling them with ease. It took time but I fought and I won.
There are many battles we have to fight for our survival and for letting ourselves free.
The most encouraging part came when I was in University. I topped my first year in my class comprising of two semesters simultaneously. I had never topped in school and was just carefree to think about becoming a topper. That was the phase which taught me that marks don’t define you and everyone is unique. It let me to find my trait which defined me.
The society now seemed happy but now I knew that they couldn’t set my limits and judge me.
Life has always taught me valuable lessons. Everything in life be it relationships , jobs or grades don’t ever let them define you and whenever you feel stressed just give it a pause.
Oh poor, unthinking human heart ! Error will not go away, logic and reason are slow to penetrate. We cling with both arms to false hope, refusing to believe the weightiest proofs against it , embracing it with all our strength. In the end it escapes, ripping our veins and draining our heart’s blood ; until regaining consciousness, we rush to fall into snares of delusion all over again.
A pause is necessary to figure out some important aspects of your life.
Break free and give yourself a pause. Don’t let people control , stop or define you. Give yourself the space you needed , a break that your mind or heart longed for.
Let go of the toxins of your life and inhale positive vibes. Be the real you you’ve always wanted to be. Smash the fakeness which you have pretended in front of the society. You are your own priority.
Pause , stay still , think and then rewind and reinvent yourself. You are the writer of your story….the story of your life.
Thanks for reading. Hope my writings bring a positive change in your life.
Be you ❤️
