Adulting

When I was younger, I always wanted to grow up. To grow up so I could be in charge, so I could make my own decisions. I had no say in any of the major decisions that my family took, because I was a child. I hated it.

Now that I’m elder though, I realize how hard it is, to be in charge. I get a say in those decisions, but I never say the say. I mean, today, when I get the chance to speak up, I don’t. I worry instead. I start thinking. I start thinking about the pros and cons. I start thinking about my past mistakes. I start worrying about the future.

As a child, when I looked at any adult I envied them for their independence, their freedom. Now as an adult in my early 20s when I get the same freedom and voice which I so long desired for, I do absolutely nothing about it. It’s only lying rotting day by day in some unseen, dark and damp corner of a long forgotten room.

A Support

Howsoever we may deny it, at the end of the day, we do need a shoulder of a parent, a trusted friend or a distant relative. The entire day goes into the hardships of being more and more independent; but towards the end, we all reveal our true character. Fortunately or unfortunately – I have no say in this anyway – we are after-all ‘social‘ animals. Humans need crowd, animals need herd; birds need flock, and someone to be heard.

Abandoned.

“You haven’t got any idea how it feels like to be alone” – one of his friends cried out. “You’re always surrounded by someone or the other.” He was left with only a slight curve of his smile to offer, on the outside. Internally, it was a completely different scenario. There were series of various images flashing before his eyes – of all the times he had been abandoned, deserted and labelled as an outcast. Life is hard. But it always seems to be easy and peaceful; when furnished with a smile. 🙂
