Being still..

It’s been two years since I blogged in WordPress.

Last time I was yelling at my full throat to make my views clear. But over the years I have suffered the consequences of my action. I realized the value of being still in this busy world could do wonders. Even though it takes a lot of self control to exercise this virtue of “being still” the efforts pays once you begin to reap its benefits.

I’m an impatient , overexcited person who loves to just talk about anything under the sun. Needless to say I’m really not a good choice for keeping secrets either. I have always exercised my fundamental right of speech anytime and anywhere. Not to mention the blessings I got and the curses I heard because my life is so incomplete without my talk!

I can never keep quiet and pretend that nothing has happened. I can never hide the mistakes I committed . I keep confessing the wrongs I do more than the rights I ever did. In a way I’ve opened doors for people to criticize me, poke me on face and just abuse me because of this nature.

Sometimes I wonder whether my world would be better without my talk. But I refuse to keep silent. If my silence can change the world then this world would have been a far better place already because most of them are keeping mum! Their silence is a reflection of the fact that they have been wronged in ways that are cruel , their dreams have been stabbed , their ideas have been mocked. An open door that leads to exit has always been there for some, and a closed door for others who thought they could change it on their own. I’m also one of them. I did keep silent when things went out of control. But I realized that my silence has quenched my very life as well. Why should I be a different person for others who never saw the real me? Why did I try so hard to fit in when I’m meant to stand out? Why couldn’t  I accept myself? The problem starts with me and the solution ends with me.

I didn’t value myself. So people didn’t value me either. When they passed funny and rude comments, blabbered lies about me I “silently” nodded. There, I made a mistake of not using my latent talent of “expressing my views publicly”. I silently heard their slanders, their sarcastic jokes believing every bit of rubbish they said.Image

I’m not the only one in this world who goes through this state of mind. Ask yourself. You can see a bit of me in your life too.

In the continuous quest of finding true love, wooing your loved ones, fitting in their shapes and sizes why don’t we all take a moment and look at ourselves and say this

“YOU ARE TO BE LOVED JUST THE WAY YOU ARE”

Challenge to all those who read: “BE YOURSELF FOR THE NEXT FEW DAYS AND SEE THE DIFFERENCE, LIVE YOUR LIFE NOT SOMEONE ELSE’S AND ABOVE ALL LOVE YOURSELF…AFTER ALL YOU ARE NOT THAT BAD “
