There are people who enter your lives for a reason, perhaps to teach you an important lesson? They consume your time, your energy, your positivity, then suddenly leave you bereft of it all. You begin to wonder, what went wrong – what is it that you had said or done that has led to this, and try all that you can to figure out, to set the equation back alright,
Only to go through doom all over again.
Let go. Let go of them. Happily. ‘Cause no one is indispensable. No one is important enough for you to lose your sanity over. Let the efforts be mutual. Only then does it become an equation.
Time flies. Circumstances change. Faces become unfamiliar. We age.
It is ironical though – the fact that we meet millions of people in different phases our lives, but we manage to stick on to only a few. A few become strangers, a few, acquaintances, a few, family, and a few, friends, for life – because, we connect with them like we do with nobody else. The wavelength, the rapport, the understanding, the warmth.
To those few of you in my life – you belong to me.
It doesn’t matter in which part of the world you live, it doesn’t matter if we don’t converse everyday, it doesn’t matter that today ain’t friendship day – but – I love you.
I am, because you help me be.
Thank you, for, you connect with me the way I am, you connect with my flaws, with my follies. With my imperfections. With my eccentricity. With my absurdity.
This bond we share, just so you know, is for forever.
A puncture now and then,
Shouldn’t stop you from finding your zen,
Your journey, you know, ain’t freefall,
So disruptions big and small, shouldn’t let it stall,
Pursue your calling, ensure you have a ball,
Pursue until you succeed, rise everytime you fall!
To be able to move on,
To be able to stay strong,
To be able to let go,
To be able to take it slow,
To learn to appreciate,
To have the strength to elucidate,
To acknowledge what ain’t meant to be,
To not pursue it even after it hurts thee,
Triumph to me, in short, is,
Finding my way to bliss!
The last thing anyone needs in life is negativity. In any form.
What’s meant to be, will be and there’s no stopping it. But let’s not complicate it more.
There’s already too much void around, in life. There’s no more space for vaccum.
So here’s to weeding out.
Weeding out people, and thoughts, that ain’t anything else but only to pass your time with.
And here’s to blocking all the vaccum and void with people who you really matter to, and who, matter to you.
Because, the rest don’t really fit in.
So here’s my mid year resolution.
From people, to whom I ain’t bringing a ray of sunlight. From people who only lend me shadows and dark clouds – sans the rain. From instability. From disrespect. From resentment, regret and repentance.
And here’s to my bunch of happy people. For, you are my sunshine, you are my rain. Because it sometimes takes a storm, a rollercoaster ride or a tender flight to realize what people truly are.
Oh, and the number of contacts on your WhatsApp chat or the friends on your Facebook account really don’t matter. ‘Cause you already know who you are to people and they know what they mean to you.
P.S. Let them know they mean the world to you, if they don’t already know. It’s important they know.
P.P.S. Choose wisely. ✨
Every house has seen this story,
Every kid has sung it to glory,
‘Tis everybody’s favorite, age no bar,
‘Tis something that can bring about a great, big war,
Hey, Crisp – you also help keep together friends and family,
One delicious bite, and all we know is glee!
The farther you run away from what you fear,
The more you will begin to dread them –
Get done with them, once and for all. The sooner, the better.
