The fear of being stuck sometimes keeps us moving forward. Many-a-times, it become the reason why we put in effort. We study for exams so that we pass them and do not have to be stuck in the school, college or University for any time longer than than we expected. We seek therapy because we have a fear of being stuck in those of our thoughts which pull us back and make our lives more miserable when we become inactive or take disastrously wrong decisions which derail us from our purpose in life, which can also be just to be happy.
Overestimation is the cause of suicides but at times, also of success. Contemplation is a good habit that saves us from many troubles but overthinking ruins it all. It harms our self-image and self-confidence. It prevents us from working hard to achieve our goals by making us afraid or lazy.
No inspiration to write,
experiencing writer’s block,
pen’s nib stuck on a spot
remaining in that state so immobile.
It’s all a mess,
a state of unrest.
All try to give their best
because they know about the survival of the fittest.
I am trapped. I don’t know if they are my thoughts or the weather that suffocates me, but my throat feels choked off air. Maybe it’s the pressure I feel when I think of my career prospects from the perspective of my family— the economic point of view.
When the calendar changes to 365,
be it by faith or may it be universal,
the aim of growth in the life
is for each individual and temporal.
Rabindranath Tagore wrote ‘ekla chaulo re’. Gain some inspiration from Phoebe Gary and Don’t Give Up. You can pause to breathe some air inside and refresh your passionate blood but don’t stop because ‘If by easy work you beat, Who the more will prize you?’ The tougher the task, the more happiness and pride would you gain after its accomplishment. And accomplishing it all by yourself would serve as a cherry on the cake.
You give to me
The thrill of life,
Freedom to soul
And courage to strive.
