Wounded

Aaaarghhhh…I am frustrated.

I can list down the reasons but cannot really explain why. It’s just a mix of everything.

Nothing seems completely right. I seem to be losing my touch. What do you do when you face your flaws? When you realise your shortcomings. When some people point it out to you. Or may be even bring it out in you.

I would like to wade off negativity. Some things just pull you down and I don’t want to waste my time over them. A sense of purposelessness prevails. Nothing is bringing pure joy or even a whole hearted smile. I am changing for the worse. I don’t feel myself, now that I am not exuding positive energy.

Mann karta hai bhaag jaun kahin. Akele.

I wish to run away somewhere, that is. Alone.

What a respite it would be, to not be answerable to anyone, not to compromise, not to fidget, not to struggle, or utter words out of spite.

Heal first, if you are wounded, before correcting the things around you. Find your light first. Seek and ye shall find.

  1. What do you do when you face your flaws? Look at ways to fix them.

    When you realize your shortcomings? Celebrate the fact that you are ahead of so many people who have no concept of shortcomings.

    When some people point it out to you? That depends on whether you can trust their perspective. You should either thank them for being honest, or delete them from your Friends List!

    Or may be even bring it out in you? If certain people bring out the worst in you, then clearly you shouldn’t socialize with them. Get some new friends!

    Being self critical is not necessarily a bad thing as long as it is done honestly and with a sense of reality. There is the saying “A man who never makes mistakes, never makes anything.” It also applies here in that if you do not acknowledge your weak points, then you can never resolve them. i.e You must be perfect … which is of course totally unrealistic. Celebrate your learning about yourself and move forward. You will be a better person for it!

    Also remember that those who criticize you are probably frustrated with themselves,and are simply offloading onto you. Perhaps you can help them with their issues? Keep smiling. Stay healthy. Stay safe. 🙂

  2. Michelangelo is known to have said, “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” Perhaps we only need to reveal the love, peace, and beauty within our “self” without comparison to others.
