I need an escape. Escape from the boundaries. Escape from the limitations. Escape from the vibes that I have been feeling. I need an escape from my current life and my current situation. I want a world that is my own. The world that I dream about day and night. Where it’s just about me and my goals. The world where I don’t have any space for anyone except for a few loved ones. People I call my own.
I wonder if it’s just me occasionally, or are we all constantly being hit by these thoughts at some point of our life?
I believe it’s not just me having sleepless nights with these thoughts constantly running through my brain and getting on my nerves, right? It took me a really long time and quite a few sleepless nights to figure out where I’ve been going wrong. I know I’m not there yet completely but I also know, I’m half way there at least. Honestly, one of those nights is the one I’m writing this piece on.
And, you wanna guess what I’ve figured out? Wait, let me make it simple for you.
The only way I can make my self happy is by stop dreaming about it and start doing something about it. I have to do something about it till the time I find my happiness and internal peace. Till the time I don’t need an escape from anything and anyone. I want to make my life something I’m proud of. I’ve been given this one life, and I gotta make the most of it, everyday.
I have to stop focusing on things I know aren’t worth my time and I’d rather prefer spending some quality time with myself, family or friends. It makes me realize about the greater joy’s that I’ve been blessed with. Things and people I know won’t leave my side when I need them the most.
I’ve also perceived the importance of self – love. For a fact, If you’re not happy with yourself and the way you are, there is no power in this world that has the audacity to make you happy for anything. You may think it’s impossible to be happy being yourself. Every day, it’s easy to wish you looked like or acted like someone else, or had the cushy job or great boyfriend that someone else has. However, until you learn to accept who you are and work to address your flaws, you’ll never grow as a person.
Here are a few tips that I practice myself:
- Listen to what your heart says is right.
- Eliminate toxic people from your life.
- Give yourself enough space and time to reflect.
- Accept yourself for who you are.
- Let go off your past and live in present.
I know I have so much to look forward to in the coming days and in my life ahead. Because, giving up is never an option. Never was, never will be.
