I know what it’s like to feel tired. The way your bones crack and the way it aches… I know.
I know it’s tiresome to even exist sometimes, the world we live in is an exhausting place to be. It’s wearing. It’s thankless. It’s mostly tiring and rarely rewarding. I know this world, it takes more from you than it gives. And you, you are tired of loving too much, caring too much, always giving too much to the world that rarely gives anything back. You are tired of investing into pool of uncertainties. You are tired of grey, the same grey which reminds you of those heart cringing moments.
I know you were not always this worn out. I know you used to be that person buzzing with gobs of energy. I know you used to be a pool of optimism and how you used to outweigh your cynicism and you had an immense amount in you to give.
I know your hopes has been chipped away and worn down piece by piece, a broken heart here and an unkept promise there! I know the world was never fair with you and you lost more than you won. I know you feel uninspired and demotivated to get up and try again. I know.
Beacause the truth is we are all tired, tired of the battles we fight everyday. Exhausted from the war we always have inside ourselves. The storm we carry every moment, it’s going to exhaust us.
But you being tired will not help. When you are tired, go slowly, go at your pace, go quietly, go timidly. But do not stop. Because you are tired for all the right reasons. Don’t forget that you are tired because you’re supposed to be! You are tired because you tried. So all that pain is going to pass, just hang in there…
I came across this picture today and I instantly felt very horrible. This is what we’re conveying to the young ones!
How much important it is to look good? Why do we have this ‘perfect’ figure definition to feel confident? Is it bad to have few more ounces on your body? How does the weight of the body can define a person? I really want an answer to these questions.
This isn’t the first time I’m feeling so disgusted! We are living in a world where stuff that pleases your eyes is good, be it a pair of shoes or some clothes or a person! Now adding a person into this above category of eye pleasing stuff is something that makes me feel disgusting. Like really? Having a pair of shoes that isn’t comfortable but still looks good might be fine (though I prefer comforting ones) or maybe a dress that looks lovely but isn’t making you feel comfortable might be okay too, but choosing people on the basis of their looks is just so insensitive and moronic!
We are so much focused on pleasing people that we actually forget about our own comfort! I would want to be in a society where people will be like ‘hey so what if you have a few more ounces on your body, just let it be’, ‘you’ve got wonderful tanned skin’, ‘hey don’t worry, you look just awesome’. Is it really burdensome to accept the way people are! I wonder…
