I dream of the day…
When feeling lost in this pointless society is not something that happens often…
When the one you thought understands you, do not judge you by your choices…
When you wish the feeling of being held up in a clueless room with nowhere to go vanishes…
When freedom of choice is understood as it is something which allows you to have a choice of your own and be oneself like the one you really are…
Trading one’s reality to establish a place in this society,
Losing one’s sense for a pointless act,
Giving up one’s ability to feel and wearing a fake mask will never make one happy…
In this cluster of thoughts something struck me that when people strongly hold on to an existing belief and are shown that something worked against that belief, that thought isn’t greeted with a smile and is rather treated with a sense of disparity. The core reason behind it would be to protect the pre-rooted beliefs. One can easily rationalize and eradicate anything which is not in sync with the core belief.
I once read this exciting quote by Carrie Bradshaw…
“Maybe some women aren’t meant to be tamed. Maybe they just need to run free until they find someone just as wild to run with them.”
If only everyone understood that we all are different or rather say unique in our own way and cannot truly feel happy and evolve if one’s uniqueness is crushed. I feel one should never hold regret of not having tried to find oneself and struggle with life just to convince people around you. Wouldn’t one want to “Be Happy” and “Live Happy”? Give it a thought, would you!

People always find it hard to see something other than their core beliefs. It is one of the big reasons why there are so many conflicts but it is also what creates diversity in our world.
Indeed! Well said. Thank you for stopping by!
Of course! I will go through the rest of your posts asap. 🙂
Would love that 🙂 Thank you!
I understand this stems from the feeling of being suffocated and expected to conform and fall in line with ‘society’. Been in the same place many a time
Yeah! You got it right Namy! I do break many rules and often end up out of line from the norms decided by society though 😛
Very nice post…..
Thanks a lot 🙂
I can see you have a lot of growing up to do and many more disappointments coming your way before you understand that finding yourself and finding someone who helps you find yourself is not an easy task. Enjoy the journey and forget about the outcome
True that Sunita 🙂
Live life on your own terms, thats when one is truly liberated and happy. Many a souls crush their dreams just to have a face in society – its too heavy a price to pay I feel. care a damn its but one life. Make the most
You summarized it well Aks 🙂 Thanks a lot for stopping by.
That is how I used to think, too. But, I guess, with age, I have learnt that life is what we make of it, how we treat ourselves and learn to separate the good from the not so pleasant. Live your life the way you want to. You are young, and hopefully, free enough to live it on your own terms. Don’t let go of that, and do not expect that ‘someone’ to come, find you and live life like you would want to. That is not how reality pans out. Sigh.
Well, that is the point, I do not want someone to come and define my life. This post was written during a phase of my life when someone tried to do that and I did not let that happen 🙂
Good for you, Keerthi! Take care!
