As if something were left between the pages every time you read it. Feelings, thoughts, sounds, smells…and then, when you look at the book again many years later, you find yourself there, too, a slightly younger self, slightly different, as if the book had preserved you like a pressed flower…both strange and familiar.”
I am in competition with no one. I run my own race, I prefer running alone rather than running in a rat race.
I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone, in any way, any shape or any form.
I have comparison with my own self rather than someone about whom I dunno shit.
I don’t compare myself with anyone, because what I’ve been through is something I know and no one else.
I never try to be better person than anyone, because I fight different battles than them.
I may appear a dark being and maybe I am but that doesn’t mean I am evil.
I just aim to improve, to become better than what I was before, to become better human being.
I am proud to be what I am because I am ME.
That’s me and I am FREE.
Loved this post ❤
It is one of the most difficult things I try to do. Forgiveness.
I feel like it is a sigh of defeat. I know better. But I feel like it’s waving the white flag.
“You win. I have to be the bigger person and you can walk away without learning anything.”
It feels like I have to be the one to do the growing and the person that did the hurting doesn’t have to do anything.
Hell, he didn’t even have to apologize.
It can be any kind of hurt. It can be someone that hurt me emotionally or physically or unintentionally.
But I forgive because I have to.
I don’t forgive them for the guys’ sake. I don’t care how it makes him feel actually. He doesn’t even have to know I am trying to forgive him. I don’t even want to give the men the satisfaction of knowing that…

Greetings everyone! Well whenever I sit alone I think about this thing so finally I thought to put it here and share it with you all. Few days back I was sitting with a friend of mine; he was talking with me and had his cell phone in his hand all the time, looking at it every few seconds, so naturally I asked him if he was expecting a call or message from someone special. And he was like no, no this is my habit. For a few seconds I didn’t know what to say.
Well this is not just his problem; this is problem of our whole generation. We all are so much into this gadgets and fancy gizmos that we can’t do without it even for a single second. If internet isn’t there our life stops. I find this thing really peculiar. I am also habitual to this stuff but not addicted.
Other one thing that I find odd is our generation is asking for “space” all the time but we can’t live without cell phone, tablets, laptops, etc. for even an hour! Leave alone hour, people can’t do without these stuff for even few minutes. The definition of this “space” is very subjective. We are constantly in need of people but virtually, so much we need them that life becomes impossible without these chats and messengers.
A survey says when people were asked to leave their cell phones and all other gadgets aside they refused to do so. And when forced to do so, some of them agreed to take shock treatments to fill that space. Yes! Shock treatments… this is really very appalling that one is not comfortable in his own company. We are so afraid to face those dumped feelings and emotions that we are ready to face anything but that. No wonder why our generation suffers from depression and other related problems. There are several examples of people becoming violent just because they don’t have their cell phones or wify network. Our increased dependence on gadgets, social networks and the internet has been accompanied by a rise in psychological disorders.
I personally feel that we all need that alone time once in a while, but we refuse to take that. And that leads to tons of problems that we face in our lives. If I have some problem or have some confusion then the best thing for me is to sit alone and think about it. I will definitely find a solution. But most people refuse to do so; instead they ask their “friends” of their opinion and then take a decision. But I personally feel that you are best judge for yourself, you can choose best for yourself. What I exactly want to convey is, gadgets and all these stuff are good but don’t let those things rule you and your life. It has been invented to serve you, not the other way round.
