Life and Choices

Have you ever wondered what life would have been like if you were the only person responsible for taking all your decisions? Well am not talking about from the time you were toddler but since you grew up and had to choose between science and art, college or an year abroad etc.

I should have been writing this when I was 40 or something but I feel as if it’s extremely important that we realize our choice makes or breaks our lives at an early age. In our society we are treated like sheep. You have to listen to your parents, elder siblings, and extended relatives even neighbors. I don’t mind that unless you have to completely kill your own conscious and follow their dreams. Some people might argue that they have more experience and they would want what’s best for us I do agree with them but on the flip side they made their own experiences. They lived their life. And now it’s our turn to live ours. Make your own decisions, take risks, follow your hearts, struggle for it and make your dreams work.

Please respect your own choice, have a little faith in it and strongly pursue your decision. Worse case would be you will face disappointment but at least that disappointment is better from the regret of what if.

The thing with Goodbye

We as humans are on a constant journey. From 1000 miles journeys to grocery shopping, growing up to getting old, getting in car for school or going to the mall, one minute to an eternity, literally and figuratively these journeys never seem to end. Even if you are doing nothing and just sitting on a couch it’s like you are on a platform waiting for the next journey to start or a long journey to end. 

So the journey is constant. But what does that mean? You never truly belong to one place. The people you clung on to are not going to be there till the end. The people who you loved so dearly, the places you felt are like your home and the moments you thought are the best that would never end, you have to say goodbye to all those things.

All of the memories, all of the smiles and all of the tears, everything has to end with a goodbye. A bittersweet, the most powerful yet inevitable emotion.
