//“God has given us one face and we make ourselves another”
There’s more to people than their happy, interesting social media uploads and their huge plastered smile. We can never understand someone fully until and unless they become comfortable and yet there’s always a side that’s kept secret.
So, Is it fair enough to judge people ? Can we really act like we know their problems and have our say?
It’s kinda tragic how the era has changed- where people have no time to put themselves in somebody else’s shoes before having their say ’cause it’s become so uncool.
Just because someone is able to smile, hold their heads up and carry on in life, it doesn’t mean that they are leading a perfect one. There’s a huge need to respect everyone’s ideals and opinions.
Oh tell me who doesn’t have a thing for skies. The gloomy grey, the lilac, the sunset and the starry Nights.
The wrath of the clouds some evenings, the pleasant smile the other days. Oh boi, and the definitely changing mood swing tantrums’ surely got a thing to say. It’s not the morning coffee that keeps me happy but the bright blue sky that makes me go flippy-floppy.
The sight that lay above me
Makes my tiny heart start reeling,
Coz now it’s my darkened room’s ceiling.
Though the stars strung high above me,
Claim I’m a part of it all
I can’t stop their large expanse,
From making me feel small.
It’s been a long tiring series of events that gave an insight to happiness, joy, missings, and thoughts all this while. Now it’s new beginnings and time to explore adventures. It’s great to meet new people and let them know a newer version of myself.
You there. Do you know you’re like a triggerfish, so beautiful yet so aggressive? But you, of course, do not know that you’ve stars in you, infinite number, which can illuminate your whole sky.
Your features are limitless and you’ve so many capabilities in you. Then why don’t you appreciate yourself?
I know you’ve lost many people. You obviously don’t want to lose more. But mind you, out of all those ‘important'(as you say) people, you’ve lost yourself at the earliest. Do you know why? Because you were too occupied with the so-called-important-people.
Trust me, you’ll have to deal with everything alone. No one will come to save you. Not today, not tomorrow, not ever. Crave for yourself and not for them. Love your sharp edges, your roughness, your imperfections, your wounds and ugliest scars. They have taught you so much. They have actually shaped you. Run your fingers through your perfections, slowly, lovingly. No, don’t be afraid.
Fall back in love. Fall back in that extraordinary love with yourself. Rediscover your strongest talent and nurture it. Embrace it. Swim just like the triggerfish in the constellation of countless stars; swiftly, aggressively, efficiently, beautifully. You’re strong enough to do that. Just start from somewhere, anywhere, then see how you rock your sky.
“What I’m and what I’ll be isn’t for people to love me. It is to win the battle I have within myself everyday.”
It’s really hard to blend in the world with a skeptical mind and a sensitive heart. When every little scenario can lead to an impact, it takes ounces of courage to teach myself what’s right and wrong.
The real success is putting back my original pieces and convincing myself that I can make it through. I change. I’m in fact obsessed with new beginnings. Change is constant and it doesn’t need an explanation.
-For everyone who’s struggling to define yourself, explain yourself, don’t. Just don’t. Be who you are. You don’t need a validation. You made it today. You’ll make it any other day.
“Today you are you, that’s truer than true. There is no one alive who’s Youer than you.”-Dr. Seuss
It’s these little things that matter in our life. Look around, everything is so damn beautiful. The thought of bringing in a change in me like cutting my hair, piercing my ears, meeting new people, small talks about nothing and everything bring me so much joy. I live the moment. Trust me, it’s always easier this way !!
