While talking to a close one the other day I realized so many things were going wrong in his life. He was struggling each day to make a balance between his family and career. He was unable to spend proper time with his loved ones. So many things were frustrating him and all he wanted was Someone to listen to him. Someone to talk to without fear of being judged, someone to say some kindly words, someone to motivate him when he saw his efforts doom.
And I wondered that today there are so many people out there who just want someone to listen to them, someone to tell them its not a big deal, to say that its going to be okay. Aren’t we human beings many time choking with emotions ? Our almost solitary lifestyles (despite the many social media friends) leaves us short of company at the time of crisis. And then there is the fear of being judged or harming our carefully photo shopped picturesque lifestyle that we want to present to everyone.
I know these fears exist because sometimes I myself am doubtful – whether to share or not. In the end, I have realised that it is much better to open my heart, to involve some people in my ups & downs and give help to others just as readily.
P. S. Do share who are the people in your life who are always willing to listen to you?
To all the men out there who try to tell a women who or what to be..
Sometimes she needs your attention, Sometimes she doesn’t get along with her family, Sometimes she needs to hit a boxing bag, Sometimes she need to cuddle all day long, Sometimes she needs to wear makeup, Sometimes she is bored with her current hair style, Sometimes she needs to care about the book she is reading, Sometimes she wants to eat that particular meal because it has the correct minerals in it, Sometimes she wants you to cook for her, Sometimes she wants to be a freedom fighter, Sometimes she wants to debate politics with you, Sometimes she will express herself with the poetry she has written, Sometimes she needs to learn from you, Other times she wants to teach you, Sometimes she wants to buy you something, Sometimes she wants you to show her commitment, Sometimes she isn’t bothered about dressing up, Sometimes she wants to be a free spirit….
Everyday she needs your love. Everyday she needs your care. Everyday she deserves to be respected. Everyday she faces problems created by men we call ‘sexism’. Everyday she is a human. She doesn’t need to be stereotyped, to be put in boxes or categories created by men to destroy her self esteem.
She needs to define herself on her own terms. She needs you to listen to her, to what she wants and what she needs.
Everyday she needs to feel special and appreciated. 🙂
P. S. To all the girls, tell me how your world is like in your imaginations which you want in reality. And all the men, do share your views.. Will be waiting.
When I had lost all hope they showed me the ray of light.
When I had no self confidence, they taught me that I am capable to do anything I think of. They made me realise my capabilities.
When I had no friends, no person to talk to about my problems in life. They became my motivation. They helped me fight all the problems.
Many people came in my life, and left me broken into pieces. But they never let me feel alone. They made me even stronger than before.
They made me smile when I least wanted to do so.
They were always there, never judging but always understanding me.
They made sure I was comfortable and in a peaceful state of mind always.
They made me who I am today.
They are my family members. My biggest strength in life.
P.s. I learned many things from them. They have always loved me and continue do so. Even now, when I feel low. I don’t feel like giving up because of them. We should all love and respect our family. Because in your days of blue, many people may leave you but they will stand by you as your biggest support system.
And I also have not been posting a lot lately. But I want to hear from you people. What are the topics I should write about? Give your suggestions always. 🙂
Daily, something or the other happens which makes me so confused. I can’t assume things on my own. If not told otherwise. How do people expect others to understand their mood swings or the things going on in their mind?? Like isn’t it frustrating sometimes people don’t speak what they want from us or how they expect us to behave with them if they are not in the right frame of mind. And later, it becomes an issue, as they assumed we would understand things on our own?
And then I always wish how easy life would be if I could read the minds of people, how they think, how I would come to know easily what people expect out of me and how I should react. I so wish..
But lately, i also found some ways how to avoid such situations with people. We should just be more observant, speak less and analyse how people react under different situations.
So let me ask you people, Do you wish to be a mind reader??
“…..and yet you say life is beautiful”? My sister asked me.
“Well. YES It is. Isn’t it beautiful to know that tommorow is a new day, a new adventure, a chance to change our lives, a new quest that awaits you? Isn’t it beautiful to find happiness in the most simplest of things like getting the last piece of cake, finising our favourite novel, enjoying heavy rainfall with a cup of coffee, seeing the old couple loving each other and cute smile on the new born’s face? Life is all about cherishing these little moments. They help to forget the things which keep bothering you. You just have to stop and acknowledge the little wonders and soon you’ll notice that life is a beautiful journey.” I replied.
Whenever I hear about someone’s death. The first thing that comes in my mind is what happens after we die? Is there a life after death? Are the stories true which we have heard since our childhood that good people go to heaven and bad or the evil ones go to hell? I mean what is hell and heaven? Is there any truth in such stories.
p.s. I want to know each and every one’s opinions. What exactly happens? Hell or heaven? Or we get a new birth? What?
Everybody is inspired by somebody at some point of time in his life. We wish to be like that, true isn’t it? Maybe someone fictional or a real persona.
Well same is my case. I am hugely inspired by him. He is someone who works hard day and night to fulfill all my wishes . He is like the best friend I’ve had since childhood. Someone who understands me better than anybody i believe. Someone who is always eager to learn new things and is full of experience. Someone who doesn’t shy away in accepting his mistakes if being wrong. Someone who would teach us new lessons daily and would make us value our relations even more. And, I feel so proud to be his daughter. You are my inspiration and I wish be to like you someday. Happy birthday to you :*
p.s. A special day. A special dedicated post. But I want to know, who is your inspiration people? Mom? Dad? Any celebrity? Someone? And why? Waiting to hear from you. Keep giving your reviews. 🙂
