Redefine your fear

From the day we are born, we experience different things in life and meet different people. Based on our experience, we develop certain beliefs or have fear about certain things. As we grow up, our subconscious mind reminds us about those experience and keep the fear alive in our mind. 
That fear unknowingly ties us and restrain us from experiencing it again. I agree, I am not invalidating your fear and saying it’s wrong to have fear about certain things. But I ask you to loosen the grip of the fear and tiptoe to the unknown boundary. Surprisingly that fear might disappear as you experience the same things again in life. You might be able to cut off the string holding you right and breathe freely.

New year, New chapter

Life is like a novel. Every new year is like a new chapter in it. We have the chance to rewrite our character in each chapter. Even though, we can’t change other characters or events happening around us. We can reshape our character to be a new version. We can learn some new skills. We can cut off a fear that’s holding us back. We can be more compassionate towards other people. We can lend a helping hand to anyone in need. Let’s author our character from the scratch, the way we want. Take responsibility for the change, dream it, shape it.

2021 – An empty canvass

You are full of opportunities
Or full of hurdles,
You are full of surprises
Or full of shocks,
You are full of love
Or full of hate,
You are full of happiness
Or full of remorse,
You are good
Or bad,
You take shape of
Reality or my fear,
I have the full privilege
To paint you as I want !

Whom are we scared of !

Stephen Hawking, one of the greatest physicists ever, is reported to have said that we live on a minor planet of a very average star located within the outer limits of one of a hundred thousand million galaxies. I have read this line in the book ‘ who will cry when you die’ by Robin Sharma. I was really moved by this thought.

In that world, we might live in a small country which narrows down a small city and then very small locality. In that, we know very less amount of people, even in that very small amount of people we see or talk to every day who can be counted as our friends or relatives. This is a very rough overview of one’s social circle. There is a very minimal possibility is their other person also consider you like this in their social circle.

Next time when you are worried about, what is this so-called society will say about anything you do, take a deep breath and ask yourself, how many people will come in that ‘society’ tag and how many people in that really matters to you or vice versa. I am sure you will get more clarity 🙂

Greatest fear

“Truth or dare ?” She asked playfully.

“Dare” He said and smiled.

“So you are not ready to confront the truth?” She rolled her eyes.

“Yes that’s right” He gave his sweet smile.

“Fine then. I dare you to try to stand in that terrace parapet. She pointed to the highest building she could see from here” She said annoyingly.

He looked at the building and his face fell.

He replied in the small voice “You know I am afraid of heights. you can’t be serious right ? “

“Ofcourse I am serious. That’s why It is dare sir. Now come on , do it” She replied in excited voice.

“No I am not doing it” He replied firmly closing his eyes.

“You are too much. Come on, Lets do it together” She dragged him towards the building.

He came along reluctantly. He did not dare to look down.

“See it’s not that difficult” She climbed the wall and said.

“Be careful you idiot. Come on” He said with concern.

“I am not coming down, Until you climb up” She said in sing-sang voice.

His head was spinning. He knelt down and said in painful voice.

“You don’t know the pain of losing people like this. It’s not worth doing. Come down”

She climbed down and reached him “ I am so sorry. It was just for fun. I never meant to hurt you”

He looked up and said “ I have lost my mother like this , he climbed up as I insisted her, But I lost balance, She saved me and couldn’t save yourself. I couldn’t got over that fear of losing people, This height reminds me my helplessness. I am sorry. That is my greatest fear and that will be ever.”

She put her hand in his shoulder and replied with relief “That’s truth. I wanted to hear.”
