Reflection

My future children, you will be ahead of me

Most of the times or may even not be probably

Because you will become what you will be

With the information you will receive.

Irritating Caretakers

All that I ask for is to not fight for what I deserve, for the basic things like respect, job, equality because obviously, it is an unnecessary fight. These are my rights as an individual. I shouldn’t have to fight to be able to attain them. I have been arguing since my childhood and its enough and irritating now. I have always been capable enough to know what is best for me and work towards getting that opportunity. If you cannot support me, do not count the problems in front of me and just walk your own way.

The Opposite Direction

Don’t project your insecurities on to the other person. Let them breathe, even if with their problems. Let them sit and think them over to proceed towards a solution. Don’t discard that a certain problem can never happen to others because you are unable to accept the reality you you haven’t been in their shoes ever. Don’t respond “you are joking”, “stop joking”, “this can’t be true”,  “it’s nothing”, “you are imagining it” or “don’t create scenes in your head” or anything similar in nature in response. By doing so, you are pushing them towards their ruin by discarding their truth and saying so from a place of privilege. You, hence, become one with the oppressors or the culprits of their suffering. Don’t do more harm than good.

Innocence Personified

I believe, a child is a child. She or he has the same innocence. Children, regardless of whether or not you borne them, are born as a clean slate. They are separate individuals but we can provide them with ingredients to learn that will help them to face themselves proudly. That is all we can and should do.

Support

I don’t like my parents. They pretend to be supporting my career goals but are not actually. They think they know everything about the world and can rightly discern what is right and what is wrong. They do not know anything about the struggles in today’s education system that the students have to tackle with alone. Their is major lack of mental, career-oriented and emotional support in my life.

Drop

I am thinking of dropping my college lately. Of course, my parents won’t allow me to but it’s a constant recurrent thought in my mind, not because I wish to follow a trend of famous people but because I feel there is a lot of unwanted energy around me that’s hindering me, more or less, from accessing the best of me and my life.

Exhausted

My father and brother never appreciate most of the work I do. My brother associates development with economy and father always wishes for the impossible. When it is about studies, he wishes I should score excellent marks in all the subjects. Being an above average student in academics, it’s not practically possible for my distracted mind and weak memory to concentrate equally and give the best results in everything I put my head into. I don’t possess academic but verbal or linguistic and musical or rhythmic intelligence among the ten types of intelligences explained by Howard Gardener.
