“You are a loser... With a capital L... Loser”, he told her. She just stared at him in disbelief. After all, she did not expect him to say something like that. In her mind, he held a very elderly and respectable position. He might have told that teasingly. Or maybe he really meant what he said. But, she didn’t know.
All she knew was that she was hurt.
Tears welled in her eyes. She was leading an unhappy life; a life away from her family with a work that assured no appreciations or rewards and a love that was long lost!
And his comment only made her feel worse. May be she was running away from the pain and he forcefully stopped her to hurt her badly, thereby accelerating the pain.
Nobody understood her.
My life is my right. I can live it in my terms. I give an option to people to understand me, but never to comment about me; and not when they don’t understand me, she thought.
At least I am not hurting others, she concluded.
Then she thought about people who understood her and loved her for what she was. They never asked her to change. A smile creaked in her face.
Life is too short to hurt others and feel hurt. Everybody’s life is planned by a super-power above us. We are merely executing the plan.
Sometimes it is precious to be silent than to yell...
Sometimes it is better to simply smile than to frown...
Many a times, it is much-much better to laugh aloud than to get annoyed...
Sometimes, it becomes important to be with and talk to loved ones... It becomes crucial to share our feelings and thoughts with them irrespective of how important it is!
Sometimes, somebody’s adverse comment makes us identify true love and the need for self-love!
She sighed. Many such thoughts suffocated her. She peered through the window. Dear Sun was peering through the clouds. She observed the clouded afternoon transforming into a mellow evening. Her golden silence was interrupted by the golden rays. She started humming her favorite song, with an unavoidable serenity within!
