Tiny flame, turned into a glowing sun
How often have you not come across people trying to preach
you the right way to do things? I guess almost everyone does, it’s some sort of
human phenomenon I guess. I completely respect their sentiments; sure their
words are stemmed from certain experience too.
But at times it kind of gets little too much to take, when
others try to emphasise that their way is the only way. I strongly believe same
strategy may not work for all. What works for others may not work for you. And
what works for you may not work for me.
What could be the reason for resentment, when you express
your belief? You believe their suggestions are not suiting your case, but they
simply disagree to understand you. Is it to do with rubbing them the wrong way?
Hitting them hard where it hurts the most. I’m talking about people’s ego.
Their reaction is an indication of what might be transitioning within; their self
esteem comes crashing down to earth.
It would all be so much easier to co-exist if people where
to be more accommodating, f everyone around were to be more understanding.
Learning is an evolutionary process and it’s mutual too. There is a lot that
can be learnt from people around but at the same time there is something called
individuality. Creativity thrives in environment which is conductive for it. When
you are pounded by criticism and surrounded by blind cynic’s distinctiveness within
begins to diminish.
said what I had to say I would like to add just one more aspect to it. Cynics
will always do what they do best, they are the omnipotent misanthropist. Don’t lose
heart just because you were criticized. Believe in your ways; keep the
light of hope glowing even when it gets dark. Someday for sure the tiny flame within
might turn out to be the glowing sun the world desired.
It was yet another Friday or billions of
earthlings. May be it was a mundane day ahead for
some and exciting for others. An exciting day ahead for the ones who were certain
of the joy to be unwrapped the next day, the weekend. Well, in my case it was
the former. Blame it on being one amongst the many who work on Saturdays.
The distance between us questions possibilities, Two souls who connect yet shall stay detached, Life running along parallel tracks that shall never meet, Yet hope says they would someday be entwined. UnInhibited feelings spoken, thoughts exchanged, Unassuming how the world would read them, Prejudices can't be fought, let free thoughts sail, It's a battle less spoken, but I know many shall be fought. Feelings expressed in words for many are view points, Sometimes misunderstood, unacceptable for few. Thoughts expressed are sometimes song of a bleeding heart, These emotions maybe shunned by many as no art. Questioned and unacceptable orphan thoughts, Wish to die accepted, but denied and stay detest. Don't let yourself be consumed by the opinions of others, Your soul deserves a sweet song, let it be one about it's zest.
The other day in midst of a long tiring journey from the airport I zoned out in thoughts, looking outside the window. What was I thinking? I was trying to fathom as to what's the single most element distinguishing mediocrity from excellence.
A lot of us have this beautiful idea in our mind to be achievers of some sort. Each individual has their own definition of excellence. All of it leading to creating a happy space in our minds. But these remain mere ideas and definitions in our head.
We have a lot of clutter occupying our minds. Some of it even includes being less appreciative of others success. Being too bothered about right and wrong of others choices. A bunch of useless thoughts which in no way are going to be helping us in our pursuit of happiness. When we are done with all the wining about the world and people in it, we get on with our mediocre life.
We seem to believe that there is solace in the cocoon of mediocrity.
