Each one of us, with the hectic lives we live, run the risk of sounding judgmental to others. And more often than not, we don’t just sound, we GET judgmental and we feel judgmental too!!

When the space in which we live gets like this, we are not operating at our best. We are all the time under pressure to be ‘someone’ our peers/ colleagues/ friends/ spouse etc thinks of in a great way. We want everyone to think of us well. We don’t want to make any mistakes or say anything that could make us appear silly or stupid.

If we are living in such spaces most of the times, then when are we being ourselves?

If we aren’t being ourselves then may be we are living fake lives. A life in which there is no depth at all. There is no growth, no transformation!

For growth, we first of all need to be okay with who we are! And then we can perhaps say, now if this is where I am, I need to get here! And the choice of where our ‘HERE’ n ‘THERE’ lies should be totally on us. Not decided by someone else.

We are free birds, if only we allow ourselves to fly. It’s time, we love ourselves enough to lead a life that flows with energy and passion,  rather than a life attempting to look good to the world.

What would you choose?

  1. Good reminder, Aryaa. I remember when my oldest son was going through a painfully self-conscious stage during adolescence. One day we were in the car and we passed another teenage boy. My son said, “What a dork!” or words to that effect. I remarked to him, “No wonder you’re so down on yourself if that’s the way you think about other people. Don’t be so hard on yourself or on others and you’ll be a lot happier.” Of course, my son is a grown man now and he turned out very well. I’m very proud of him!
