Musing: Things To Remember Part 2

The common misconception about life is that it's too hard, too short, brings too much trouble, and too much of unhappiness.

But it's not.

Life is honestly however you choose to look at it.

It's filled with little miracles throughout the day. But you are too busy to take any notice of it. Have you ever noticed the sunrise? Or the sunset?

Have you ever noticed the smell of the Earth before the first drop of rain hits the ground?

Have you ever noticed that some people love you enough to do anything for you? That they really care about you. And no, they do not necessarily have to say, 'I love you', to convey those feelings.


We do not seem to listen enough. What we do hear are people trying to be overly protective; or just too concerned. But life's a busy thing too. If someone makes the effort of making sure you're safe and sound, appreciate it. 

The problem is: we are so used to people telling us what is wrong with us, we never seem to hear the ones screaming themselves hoarse trying to make us see what is right. We believe the naysayers so much that when we finally meet someone who believes in us more than we do - we believe they must be lying. 

They are not. They are trying to make you see who you really are. Who you should be. And how you stopped becoming that person being surrounded by all the people who bring you down. Remember that these people are NOT fighting with you; they are fighting a battle with themselves and they might be losing. 


If you chose to cut some people out of your life do not let them guilt trip into getting back in to your life. It's important to keep your promises - but that should never come at the cost of your happiness or your mental peace. Only you can make sure that you're truly happy. No one else can do it for you. 

As Frank Ocean put it, "Never run back to the thing that broke you."

I hope whoever is reading this has a fantastic Tuesday and a wonderful week ahead. 

Lots of love,
Aniesha.

  1. Wisdom at its finest. I like that.

    "The problem is: we are so used to people telling us what is wrong with us, we never seem to hear the ones screaming themselves hoarse trying to make us see what is right. "... hmm. too true. should avoid that.

    Trying not to run back to things which broke me, but that seems most difficult at present. Pushing forward! :)

    Loved the post, Anie.
