We all expect to be loved in return of the love we give to others. Frankly, we all are stuck behind the bars of emotions & insecurities. Why don't we start expecting the same love from ourselves. why to shower it on people who don't even appreciate or respect it enough. Instead of making feel others happy, giving them a beautiful smile, start this with your own self. I am damn sure, one day you will be the happiest person enjoying your own company. It might be difficult initially but trust the process. .
Every human being ought to act the same after a certain point of time when they loose the energy & power to explain further. Stop explaining yourself to people who don't give a damn to the efforts you put in, who do not appreciate your care to save a relation. It's better to walk out of things that impaired your soul & damaged your inner peace.✌
It's important to break the chain, to turn the path of your journey in order to reach your destination. Elevation requires separation. It's important to distance from people who blur the path of your destination. The person whom you loved & promise to keep forever, may be that person has completed his role in the journey of your life. Friends that turn into stranger, may be god planned some new ones to enter & give new direction to your life.
These ups and down are part and parcel of your life. God planned every move so that your journey of life towards your destination would be full of experience, adventure, happiness, disappointments, good memories, worst nightmares. His motive is to make you prepare for every downfall in life, to make you strong enough to rise like a warrior & to cherish the moments and people who are meant to be there.
Few separations are God's blessings for a wonderful future ahead. Trust his move.
Hey guys.... Last 2 days for a wonderful year ahead. Sharing a piece of note to all my loved ones. Hope you like it & hope this will inspire you & your life for an amazing journey ahead. ❤❤
It might be too late sometimes to understand a simple thing, that somewhere, at some point of time, we fail to understand our loved ones. We might be too much into our own life that sometimes, it's difficult to get what other people are dealing with, probably because we are not standing at that place. Somewhere, we tend to hurt people, despite the fact, we are unable to imagine what they are going through. Might be, what one is feeling now, you tend to realise the same at a later date, might be if you go through the same darkness or with the passage of time, circumstances makes you enough mature to get through all these happenings.
At the end, almost all of us realise, what one might have gone through, but it's life, probably, sometimes, unintentionally, we might not be able to get, what someone is dealing at some point of time.
Be with the people you love, may be sometimes, you won't be able to get, what one is going through now, but one will always remember that there is someone in his life who had the courage & patience to stay for so long. At the end, what matters is, who stood by us.
Posting after so long. I hope you all like it Deep thought
So how do I start this? This letter that I urged to write after seeing you behind that silver screen, this letter that is also a way of me thanking you for teaching me a small but very important lesson of life. You know, when I saw you for the first time, I could only see a good wife, a caring daughter-in-law and a happy daughter in you and I assumed that this is what you truly are, this is what makes you happy. I could see that you had a passion for dancing but then like any other member of this Indian society I thought it was just your past, that it was something that you were just fond of, that your priority is changed now and your only source of happiness is your family now. And somewhere you made yourself believe it too.
But that night, that night changed everything, or should I say, that night brought the truth in front of you. That slap wasn't just a slap, was it? It was a reminder for you, a reminder to see all those unfair things that you have been ignoring for so long, things that you should have opposed, or maybe you should have asked answers for. I know that it wasn't your fault because that's what women had been doing before you raised your voice, that's what your grandma taught to your mom and your mom taught to you, to let go. "Jane do ye to hota rehta hai, thoda bardasht karna sikhna chahiye aurton ko." You couldn't understand how no one told him that it was his fault, how everyone just assumed ke ye to chalta hai, ye to normal hai, har pati patni ke bich itna to hota hi hai.
The way you said, "Just a slap, par nahi maar sakta" I could feel chill in my bones, like something awakened within me that was buried since forever. I wanted to scream so loud with you, "yes, it was wrong, he had no right to do it, not even one slap". People around you tried to convince you not to break your marriage because of just one slap. When Netra said "Hamein hi jod kar rakhna padta hai." and you replied, "Jod ke rakhni padi koi cheez toh matlab tooti huyi hai na? aur kab tak, kab tak jod kar rakhoge? kabhi na kabhi to thak jaoge na?" These lines shook me, completely.
I understand what you were trying to say when you told him that you don't love him anymore. You just wanted two things from your life, respect, and happiness. But when he slapped you that night, you realized one thing, that there was no respect for you in his eyes, that he just loved his wife, not you and thought he could do anything with his wife because he loved her and he had a right to slap you, that it was just a mistake, nothing more.
When you doubted yourself for a second, your father asked you whether you are doing all this just on a whim, or is it because you are listening to your inner voice, and then you said that it's your inner voice screaming for you that it is right whatever you are doing. So he told you, "Kai baar sahi karne ka result happy nahi hota." And I could clearly see on your face that you weren't happy too, that you also didn't want to leave what you had, your home, your mother-in-law, but you also couldn't let it go that feeling, that feeling of not being respected.
Dear Amrita, as you said, that petition was just for a slap, a slap that wasn't his right. But Amrita I want you to know that that petition became much more for others, for women it became a symbol of strength, something which inspired them to stand up against all the unfair things that they were ignoring, they realized that there is no need to suppress their feelings, their hobbies. For men, it came as a reminder, a reminder that it is written nowhere that he can raise a hand on his wife or a woman in general.
Amu, now I know that blue was never your favorite color but it was always yellow, and you dreamed of becoming many things in your childhood but housewife was never one of them. You tried your best to become the world's best wife, but not at the cost of your self-respect.
