Why do we do the things we do? You don’t always need a logical reason for everything you do in life.
Sometimes it’s enough to simply do it because you feel called to.
Because it’ll make you happy
Because it’s fun!
And when you hear the calling… don’t look for a reason as to why you should or shouldn’t do it. Just do it because it feels right in the moment.
Ever wondered what Life really is like? While having a deep conversation with a friend at a coffee shop recently I realized how Life can be described as one big party. I mean, think about it. There are so many similarities between what happens at a party and the life you live. There is a party that you have, Some people you invite, some just randomly show up because you have mutual friends, some are just acquaintance. There are people all around you. You like some, and there are some who you dint want to see but they turn up anyway and there is nothing you can do. All you can do you just let it be and smile
And as time passes and everyone gets comfortable, weird things start to happen. But then there are so many people.. and you cant control everything that’s happening around you. Because you are the host and you have to take care of other things too. So people do as they please and by the time you realize what all happened because of them, its too late.
When the party is at its peak, everything is messed up. People slowly start to leave as per their convenience.
And once when everyone is gone, leaving the mess behind, all you are left with are a few close people who would help you clean the mess others created. They are the only ones who know you cannot handle it all alone.
So, think about it, Isn’t life somewhat the same? When some people just come in your life unannounced, Do as they please, leave when they wish, you still have a few friends, your people, who are there for you.
If you have such people who are there for you to clean the mess, Never let them go. Those are your people and those are the kind of people you need. The one’s who help you while others leave.
And if you are among the few lucky one’s who have such people (friends) in your life, Never let them go. Because they are your people. Appreciate them, Respect them, Love them. And be thankful you have them.
I have been overwhelmed with the number of people dealing with stress and issues in life lately. Also, it amuses me how some people would still shoo some them off by saying the clichéd phrases “It’s all in your mind”. A lack of compassion towards people dealing with Anxiety and Depression or any other Mental illness is what make things worse. It is not easy to understand, without walking in one’s shoes of how frightening it seems for someone to just get off the edge. Mental Illness does not choose or discriminate. It hits you once and there you are not knowing why or how something makes you feel a certain way. And there are so many people who deal with it silently because of the stigma that our society has towards Mental Illness.
Yes it’s true that we all handle and deal with our emotions differently and with entirely unique mindsets too, but that’s an even better reason for us to bring to light why it’s okay to reach out and to talk about our worries. Life is not all roses and some extra compassion, kindness and an open mind can make a huge difference. Just because a person smiles the day after they cried buckets, does not mean they are fine. All they do is try. Try every single day to live, to be better. Sometimes it works… other days, its harder. We are all beings, just trying to survive. Easier for some.. Not so much for others. Do not give up on those who are struggling. Just be there. And for those who are fighting, be proud of yourself and remmeber… It’s okay not to be okay!
