Rising above self

So these past few days I’ve been very busy,and as much as I’d not like to say the word, even bitchy – To myself atleast. 🙄

And then I sat down with my friend and probably poured out my stress to her, shed the couple of ready to spill tears (of self pity). And then came the realisation- I was overworking myself to the point that I was ready to blow off 🤯… and for what? Some goal I gave myself, which either accomplished or not, wasn’t a matter of life or death.

Sometimes we decide to take the difficult path and then just go on this self pity tour.🤦🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️ We simply decide to inflict this pain on our own soul 😖

I realised after the chat with my friend and hubby that they are with me in spirit and heart. Infact,I realised, so many people are, ready to offer whatever they can in their capacity. But also by letting me take over so many things and letting me keep my self pride, Letting me fight and win my battle , And their trust. What else can one ask for? Like seriously, what was I thinking????

If there is anything I should be, its grateful. And I am.

Lesson learnt- we all need to break free of this vicious circle of self inflicted stress and pain. We need to rise above self and see the larger picture that we are a part of- there are people and relations that complement us, complete us. We need to acknowlegde and appreciate not only The ones that come ahead and pat our backs and sing our praises but also those silent ones that trust us and let us take the lead .not just those who hug us and say I’ll miss you when we leave, But also those who won’t do it because they want to set you free to soar new heights.

And today, again, I do. I appreciate them all.

Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou
