Look at ‘your’ bright side

Posted on Updated on

It’s just so bright that it is hurting your eyes. Everybody else is cheering and having fun, taking pride in what so ever they have done, but you don’t like it here. You feel as if you don’t belong here. You were pushed by others around who were blinded by its brightness but still this brightness feels shallower to you than the darkness in which you choose to be in. That darkness is where you want to be though it is not acceptable by the blinded by the bright society.

You start regretting listening to others; your conscience mocks you for not being strong enough to stand up for yourself. You didn’t expect yourself to hate this Bright side of life ‘as people call it’ so much. You are different, you are not the same. You believe that there is life ahead the common calls of brightness and light. You end up just striving and not living.

You remember the days when you were showered with choices, when your family yelled at you and said, “Choose the bright side or just get out of our sight.” You were terrified, you were not ready to let go of everything given to you at your birth.

You sigh at your destiny, yes, it is saddening you. You are getting inside the huge well of depression. Your head is pounding with pain and regret. Now it’s time, whether you live like this all your life or get out and visit the darkness which is surprisingly your light, the light of your life.

    i dont know what i am saying is right or not but have a read .. i have a different point of view … i believe that who brought us to earth (god) he already has some major plans for us but he has left some minor ones in our hands , so it’s just we have to grab every opportunity we get , doesn’t matter if it requires hardships , just grab it and prove it , learn from it , gain self esteem & confidence from it , thank god even if something went wrong as rejection handling is also important .. and just not to sit idol …. we will be at somewhere better than nowhere , waiting for someone to cuss us or lend us a taunting hand. instead we should become a powerful hand of someone ..

      We are the architects of our own life, so why not create something which we love rather than following the herd? So, via this post I am trying to emphasize the importance of doing what you love and choosing the thing which is bright for you even if it seems dark to others.
      Simon Sinek once said, “If you hire people just because they can do a job, they’ll work for your money. But if you hire people who believe what you believe, they’ll work for you with blood and sweat and tears” 🙂

      P.s I totally agree with what you said, We all have our chances of opportunities and failures, but that is what makes us!

    Nice one preeti! It reminded me of Batman, I mean seriously.. The kind of image he holds in society is way different than what he carries within himself. May be, it is jus because I am a big fan of character,don’t know whether my analogy suite the topic or not ..:P

      Of course it suits it. This is the beauty of vague write ups, They mean so many things at a time to different individuals. Btw, I haven’t watched batman, except the first part, which i forgot 😛 Anyway, Thankyou so much! 😀

        Well, you are missing on so much.. Go ahead and watch the series. The Joker’s character will equally amaze you, I beat.

    We oftentimes think it’s the flow that’s making us go somewhere, against our wishes. Well if we stop swimming we might as well get carried along with it- as dead fish!
    But if we can swim through the tide and make it to our goals, then I say, there’s a Clear sunny day waiting!
    Keep the positivity flowing!

    I wonder what life would be if I read and understood this 5 years back. Believe in your light, Preeti. What is light to the rat, is darkness for the bat. Undoubtedly, obstacles of sadness and failures will be found on the way, but belief in oneself and one’s dreams will eventually bring the true smiles and pride 🙂

        I doubt if anything I studied during engineering will be of the slightest use to me in the job or anything I would do in future 😀
