Not many are aware of the difficulties of people in this world. As for me, I was indifferent too, till I fell flat on my face just to realize that I’m not as smart as I think I might be. I realized that extent of qualification may get you the tag of being educated and highly qualified but it may not make you aware and wise.
And so now, while I’m few days away from completing my 30 years on this beautiful planet Earth- I’m learning humility, acquiring depth in my personality, becoming more aware and understanding. The journey to self- discovery is never ending. But I have realized one thing that we all got to stop blaming others for our mistakes in this journey that we have embarked upon.
It is important to love oneself, but it also necessary to realize where we went wrong and acquire the strength to forgive ourselves. Because if we don’t forgive ourselves, we will get into the vicious circle of blaming others and even victimizing others especially our loved ones. In this process, we are only hurting ourselves all the more, depriving ourselves from love & affection which is genuine.
Perhaps the world is negative and filled with wrong people. But I have decided to be optimistic and positive. I will pick and choose my battle that I need to wage on my own and fight for what is rightfully mine. As after losing confidence and self-esteem- I realized that this is the only true treasure I ever owned which is far bigger than my qualifications and my work experience. And so I know I will progress and I know I will succeed for I’m the master of my fate, I’m the captain of my soul as its ends in the poetry Invictus by William Ernest Henley.
Perhaps what I’ve written here is unacceptable to many, but then who said fighting for survival is going to be easy and here I’m claiming a bigger goal than survival- I want to Live!!!
