What marks our time here? The person we are or the person we have become?Are we human beings really complex or is that what we have made ourselves?
Why are we,
So strong yet so weak
So profound yet so mild
So happy yet so sad
So simple yet so complicated
So silent yet so effusive
So pleased yet so unsatisfied
So worthy yet so empty
So unique yet so akin
So remarkable yet so mundane
So settled yet so lost
So deserving yet so deprived
I think you can only be one. The world makes you two. You can either be the quality before 'yet' or the quality after 'yet'. You can't be both. You need to understand what you feel and why you feel that way. Nobody can do it for you.
May be we all know who we are but the world around us makes us the other. Don't be so lost in proving yourself to the world. Prove it to yourself and that would suffice.
Don't worry about what people have to say about you but what do you have to say about yourself? That is the only opinion that matters.
Don't let the world make you too many things that you are unable to find the real YOU.
So look at yourself in the mirror. Is that the person you have always been?Is that the person you chose to be?Is that the person the world's opinion has made you?
Don't like the person you have become? Change it.Love the person you have become? Cherish it.
Because, both of the things can only be done by you. The world around you can't do it for you.
