Telling a teenager facts on life is like giving a fish a bath.
All go through high school, puberty, heartbreaks, loneliness, insecurities, anxiety all of it alone.
Bachpan mein bahut shauk tha na bade hone ka, ab kya hua itni jaldi haar kyu maan li hai?
All seek acceptance in our lives, and rather than searching it inside yourself you wander to find it in someone else.
Acceptance doesn’t mean you agree with, condone, appreciate, or even like what has happened.
Acceptance means that you know, regardless of what happened, that there is something bigger than you at work.
It also means that you are okay, and you will continue to be okay, you don’t let anyone else judge, you put yourself over anyone else.
You all go through many things but what really matters is how you react to a situation.
If one of your friends offers you a drink and you start drinking out of peer pressure or just to be cool then it is not maturity when someone passes you a cigarette and you start smoking even after knowing that it is not good for your health that it is not being mature, breaking someone’s heart and giving them a scar for life just because your friends told you some things about them is not being cool.
You lose yourself in search of others, in the race of fitting in, trying to be the coolest person ever.
But is it all worth it?
Worth your mental peace?
Worth of all the anger and trauma?
I am not doubting your love or your friendships or what all you have done for that person and to make him/her stay in your life, but you cannot force them right?
So take a break to calm down, and ask yourself are they really worth it?
No matter how much you miss a toxic person, please don’t contact them. It’s not worth it, you’ll just be sad again. You Deserve nothing but happiness and it is not them. You don’t ever need to feel drained and exhausted over someone. Real love will find you and you won’t have to fight for it.
Lockdown is causing a tremendous effect on your mental peace because some of you like the overthinkers are extremely harsh on themselves because the only way to escape your thoughts was by staying busy by meeting people and spending time with them. Now that you are face to face with yourself you just cannot accept the fact that the real person who needs to change is you. I agree that there can be a lot of misunderstandings due to this lockdown but remember the real ones will always stay close. Just to pass there time some people are making new bonds with others but when someone says you are special verify whether you are actually special or is it lockdown special. You can deepen your bonds with your loved ones your friends during this time because now you have the real-time which you used to spend by just loitering around and never actually having real conversations.
So consider this time as a breakaway from the reel world and consider it as a ticket to the real world, stop just passing your time by watching movies or series, and rather start building yourselves, you’ve finally got the much-needed break you had been asking since forever.
So accept yourself the way you identify your flaws and work on them so that you outshine like a bright and vivid rainbow after this storm and enlighten everyone with your positivity and vibrance.
