I’ve been off internet on my phone since a couple of weeks now, I switch it on if and when required (once a week, generally) and it doesn’t really make a big of difference.
I was quite active on Twitter until the whole “let’s shut net” thing came upon. I saw this post and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it.
Such few words but such deep meaning in this. I am the type of person who does believe in philosophical quotes only if they make sense, not some forced one. This right here is not philosophical, is not deep but out right.
You know why I love it so much? Because it’s rather true. Let’s admit it, you are all waiting to explode the anger inside you by either shouting or crying or various other methods. You seek the opportunity when no one is home. You break down. You go to wash your face in the washroom, you look up and baam! There’s the mirror conveying the deepest truth possible. You look at yourself and wonder why is it you’re crying so much, who and what made the situation so tense, why is it always you? You want to stop crying, you want to stop those damn tears from rolling down your cheeks, you want life to take a pause but such is life.
Your reasons for crying may seem petty enough or maybe it’s just the anger pouring out in the form of tears but there are people dying because of terrorist attacks and malnutrition and what not and you are crying because of whatever reason it is. Get up, face the World, you can’t give excuses to yourself for making a scene out of this. You look at yourself in the mirror and you feel worse because that one look with your eyes swollen and red, your face filled with tear drops all over, your lips in the middle of cracking, you can’t even recognize yourself anymore.
You hold on to it, you want to stop this feeling of not being able to face yourself, your heart is rooting for you from the inside to stop crying, you take a deep breath and wish things could just turn around and voila! they don’t.
That, my friend, is pain.
This story above isn’t just a personal story but a story I know most of you guys go through whether you accept it or not.
