WHO WERE YOU BEFORE THE WORLD TOLD YOU WHO TO BE?

DONT YOU FIND IT ODD, THAT WHEN YOU’RE A KID, EVERYONE, ALL THE WORLD, ENCOURAGES YOU TO FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS. BUT, WHEN YOU’RE OLDER, SOMEHOW THEY ACT OFFENDED IF YOU EVEN TRY…!

Who were you before anyone told you
you have to be this-that?
Who were you before anyone told you
focus on something good,
in the eyes of society?
focus on making a living,
will your dreams be able to do that?
Who were you before?

……..

So there was I,
standing in front of the mirror
staring at me
peering into my soul maybe,
as if i had never done before..!!??
And there i was,
questioning myself, or ,
maybe telling myself(difficult though)
‘ How are you there?
Havent it been long since we had a talk together?
And yes, if you are saying me you are okay,
then I guess we can leave the convoπŸ˜…
Here it is time to be a little honest to you, okay?
You dont have to be a liar to me,
only because “I’m okay” sounds good..!!!!
OKAY??

You dont have to keep telling this lie
repeatedly in the head of my,
it is okay to not be okay, okay?
You are angry, okay, be angry,
you want to cry, cry, until the last tear,
you want to laugh, laugh, as long as you want,
as loud as you can.
You want to dance, do that,
you want to sing, sing,
you want to take a swing, take that (break the thing, you are too old for a swing..!)
You want to go for a ride, go miles.
You want to eat, eat whatever you feel like (stop worrying about the calories it has)

And KNOCK, KNOCK….
there a voice came,
Why I’m always finding faults in my relations(be any)
Why I’m finding hope in my broken dreams,
breaking them in the process of fixing
again n again
The more I try to be close to them,
the more far I’m pushed back from them.
Isnt that wierd,
we are someone successful (be it in any way) in the eyes of the world,
and, a looser in ours..??😐
~~are you listening to me??
Yes yes, I am, after so long,
you are actually having this with you..!~~ πŸ™‚

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU ACTUALLY HAD A CONVERSATION WITH YOU?

You know, everytime we have
something to say
to us, but,
somewhere, something, stops us from that, why?
Why cant we just do whatever we feel like..!
Why can’t WE be WE??.
Can just for one second,
we all vanish all the things we are meant to do,
according to others…
and focus on what we want to do..yes?
CAN WE BE WE ?

When spending your life working towards, ‘LIVING THE DREAM’, make sure it’s really your dream, and not just a definition of success you’ve been programmed to desire for. Remember the importance of distinguishing between WHAT YOU WANT and WHAT OTHERS WANT FOR YOU AND FROM YOU..!
And remember, choosing to change course, or letting go of a once- held dream doenst mean you are giving up or failing.

  1. You’re so right, we get asked as children what we want to be and responses like “an astronaut” “a ballerina” “I want to be famous” and then as we get older and we still continue to say those things we get met with “are you sure?” “I heard it doesn’t pay well..”.

    Its sad really because we should be containing to encourage those desires as we become adults.
    Alot to think about. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Yeass you are so right Olivia. We are told to see dreams as child, and when we grow up, they are just mere dreams for the rest, we know what they actually meant to us. It very well doesnt pay well.😁

      Exactly, it is so much sad, its like dimming a lightning bulb of our dreams deep within us. And this is a lot to think about, yeass..πŸ˜…πŸ˜…, let’s hault at here.

  2. Yes, these talks with myself or basically writing and sorting thoughts really gave me back what I lost a long time ago. Although it still left me with an open wound, I can’t heal because it always gets torn open and usually not by myself anymore. But it made me say what I always wanted to say and even do things I was totally scared of just a year ago.
    We are meant to be free and live our dreams and in some cases even together. Since dreams could be even more fun with friends, real friends. ❀

    1. I’m so glad to hear you overcome thatπŸ™‚, sometimes, I guess more often, we should indulge ourselves in talks like these, like having a real conversation with us, wht we are, wht are we doing, does that resonates with our inner peace and all, it is very much imp.
      Yess, you are right my friend, an open wound will always be there, but I guess, the least we can do is, not to expose it to anything like that again..right? Healing is a process and it certainly takes time, to heal, to accept ourselves once again. It’s a big process and requires a lot of self belief and patience. I’m so happy to hear, you said what you felt always. Just remember one thing, never be scared to put forth wht you are actually thinking or want to do. Just say, let it flow too, dont worry the after affects. It is much better to say rather than hold up in your mind forever.πŸ™‚
      Exactly, they can be at ease with any, and you should do that with anyone you feel most comfortable at. Friends, family, or anyone it be. The thing is just do, just live the way you want to be.

      I’m so happy to hear from you, and that you shared such precious views here.
      Keep going. Sending all the courage your way.

      1. What you say is also – at least for the most part – what I would say. But the thing is, there isn’t really a way for me. I can basically say whatever I want to people around me and then they either don’t know what to do about, ignore it, forget it or just let it be. And at first, they say it is wrong and act out of their own suppressed emotions/feelings/thoughts and then hurt me again. I just don’t see that it will ever change because it was like this my whole life. But I am trying with things like this, to reach out to people who might actually want to understand or at least have some interest and other ideas.
        My wounds would probably all be long healed, if it wouldn’t be almost each day, that someone or something make it open again or make a new one. I am just like a dog in a cage and then I get electrical shocks. And when I go outside of the cage I get them as well. So it usually felt pointless for me to try to do something I want or try to escape, because it always ended with an electrical shock (I mean, in this image with the dog, actually just me feeling hopeless, sometimes even more down and in general heart broken and depressed). You obviously didn’t do any harm to me or caused anything of it and I am thankful for your time and thoughts. And this year I put everything “on one card” or how it is said, because I know that I don’t have enough time in either way. I mean, I could have all the time and should have all the time I want, but the reality for me right now is another. And so I am fullfilling my dreams, eventhough it is just the cheap gopnik version of everything. But at least better than nothing. I just always hope it helps someone, so that no all was for nothing. ❣️

      2. Yes, I can understand all this. All you are feelingπŸ™‚
        Everyone has some way or the other, but rarely do we see it; and I’m sure, you’ll find one too. Look, this is all a phase of life, the more we let us into it, the more it pulls; it’s our choice how we want to deal.
        And yes, you know this world is so full of so many selfish people, we can’t change the people, the way they are; but yes, we can change the type of people we want around us. Speak out your inner self to the ones who actually want to hear you, be where you are really wanted.πŸ™‚ People will come, listen and hurt us, this is a never ending process my friend, just let it be, they are that way, you be yours. Dont let them hurt you. You know your potentials.. right? Why believe their words, and get hurt?
        I agree here, some things never change, precisely people. So, then let it be. But dont let that affect you. ( I’ve seen a lot of this in my life, and come across a lot to, but you know a stage comes when we are actually fed up, and there I realised, wht I’m getting fed up of? These people? Who barely know about me? No, never. There I decided to give up on all this and start fresh. Where, I will be working on me, and only me..! It may sound selfish, but I’m happy being one if it is wht it takes for me to be happy..right?πŸ™‚)
        You dont have to reach out to poeple to listen to you, keep doing and going the way you are, you’ll definitely land up with good.

        Okey, you have to stop feeling that. Ik all this hurts, but you cant live like this..right? We are humans, and we have a right to be treated like one, and if no one is there to treat us like that, we are enough for us to do that.πŸ™‚ do you agree with me? Trying, is the only thing we can do, no matter a billion times we fail, someday we’ll rise, for sure..! Just think of that day. There are so many examples out there. Failures are part of successes, unless we try, how can we expect to succeed in something? Each failure teaches us something good, and I guess, that is enough for us, learning something from every mistake. Dont be hopeless or anything of that kind. There is always a ray of sun waiting for you, saying you, ‘hey man, bug up, rise and shine.’ We cant mourn for all the bad we have in our life, we have to stand up ourselves after falling so many times ourself.πŸ™‚
        You are strong. ( see, if I can overcome all this, anyone can, I was in so much bad condition, I guess even worse; but I decided to give a chance to me)
        So, cheer up.πŸ₯°πŸ₯°πŸ₯°
        Yess, fulfil all your dreams, do whatever you want to, everything you can, all you desire for. ( none of a dream is a cheap gopnik version, remember that..!πŸ™‚ RESPECT YOUR DREAMS)
        And, you have to remember this, you can always speak to me, whenever and whatever you feel like sharing. I’m always there to lend an ear to. ( this is not out of sympathy, pls dont take me the wrong way, I know how it feels, that’s itπŸ™‚)

  5. These are valuable ideas, which too many people never slow down to think about. It takes time and effort to dig out from under all the indoctrination and expectations and remember who you really are.

    make sure it’s really your dream, and not just a definition of success you’ve been programmed to desire for

    So many people pursue the latter, putting tremendous energy into a course which will not bring them happiness.

    I have conversations with myself all the time. It helps.

  7. Wow Akshita, this is what one can expect from your blogs, the guts to live the life of their own…😁😁

    One should have to identity themselves first, before following any path/person, right?? If they follow them without knowing themselves wholly and fully they can’t be themselves for the rest of the life… Instead of to follow others, make them follow you…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜πŸ˜ but that’s only possible if you know Who you are?!.

    1. Omg, I’m so glad to hear from you, altogether again divyang. Thank you so much for the appreciation, it means so much.

      Exactly, we cannot just crush up on our dreams, and just move on the path of whatever someone else says. Listening others is good, but then it is your choice, to do that or not, after all we have the right to choose what is good for us and what not. We cannot keep damaging ourselves in the process of fulfilling others. We dont have to follow anyones advice, nor move on their path, only because they think that path is good for us, and not actually the path we want to move on. Sad reality.πŸ˜ͺ.
      Following Someone, in a good way, is good. But making us act like slaves in the process, as mere puppets, is no where an option..right…!

        We can’t crush our dreams, that’s for sure just because by assuming what others will say/talk about us, right? Yes, i personally believe, listen first and then proposed your words. Same goes with people, listen everyone, but the last call we have to make, whether to consider others or not… Not necessary we must have to follow them if we can’t agreeing with them on some points, instead finds a better way than them..πŸ˜…
        Yes, at the same time, to feel others good we can’t ignore our selves more… Path is only one, it’s wholly up to people, how they make it right one without any WRONG TURNS!! If they swung there just because someone takes short cut, then to solve the riddle is also their responsibility..

        Following someone is good until and unless they won’t feel us downgraded, the moment they start we are nothing in front of them then remember if we are here then and only then you are there. πŸ˜…πŸ˜…
        We can’t be puppets of others, seriously…🀣🀣

        Exactly, we really cant. This will be such a big slap on our face by ourselves only, which we, maynot realise then, but will definitely repent about later. Yes, theres no wrong in listening to everyone, but assuming everyone to be right over you, and choosing their ideas as yours, is not right. You have to think, introspect, analyse everything before bringing it into action.
        Exactly, our life is about us, not to be loved upon the ideas and dreams of others..right?? We can never ignore us, just for someone else. Exactly, even if the wrong turns land up, they should know how to divert to the right place, this is how everything works. Hahah, exactly, well explained divyang.

        Exactly divyang. Again here the choice matters. You can follow someone, but the moment you feel a slave to them, you should give up the path.
        Yes, maana life ek circus hai, but yrr ab puppets ki zindagi toh nhi jeene aaye naaπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

We can start all over again from the very beginning, as that is never too late..right?

    We mostly work for unrealistic goals under the influence of others though, we should always work towards achievement of self satisfaction instead of success as one can be successful but not satisfied with himself whereas if someone is satisfied with himself he always have a feeling of bieng successful however self satifaction is nothing but achievement of realistic dream & the power of realistic dreams are more stronger than unrealistic goals of life.

      Yes, a brilliant movie in itself though.πŸ™‚,
      Exactly prashant, well said.πŸ™ŒπŸ», we should all focus on what we want and want to pursue, not what others want us to do. As that may end up with whatever we want in our life, expect self happiness, satisfaction and a peace of mind, which are the most important of all..isnt that??
      I’m glad they could again make you think towards you and more importantly, work for you..!πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸ»

  9. When writing the story of your life, don’t give the pen to anyone else. Be the hero of your own story. Don’t pain the picture of your future on the canvas of other people’s expectations or their definition of success.

    It’s your life, live it, love it and loud it.

    This piece is both intriguing and inspiring.

    1. Exactly, well said Adeleke. It is our life, it is we, who can shape and mould it the way we want to, we are not the puppets of someone, right? To follow their commands and ideas on the cost of dropping ours.
      Yes, this is so true again. We can never blame anyone for wht wr are today, or will be in the future, because at some point of time, we were the ones who actually did that, in our consent only.

      Thank you so much for your inspiring words. I really appreciate them here.😁

  10. The best way to react is embrace your feelings we can work on how we react, but we need to really let it flow than suppress or manipulate it.Facing and accepting ourselves for what we actually are.
    Nice thought thanks for sharing.
