Is it love?

Do you know what love is?
Do you or do you?
Love is not just about the butterflies you feel in your heart whenever you look at your someone special.
Love is falling for the right person at the wrong time. Love is saying 'control yourself' to your heart even when it didn't want to. Love is about knowing that the one you love can never be yours. Love is about understanding that the one you love doesn't love you back. Love is about loving someone even after they are gone long back. Love is about loving the one your love is in love with. Love is controlling your jaw dropping down when that 'one' looks extremely hot and you have to control your hormones by saying, 'Oh! You look good.'

Just good? Really?

Love is about explaining yourself every single night, 'Aree, it's not love. It's just a crush.' but still keep wetting your pillow with those never ending tears. Love is when you forget to remove your make up and gift it to your bedsheet every night after rubbing your eyes million of times while you can't sleep.
Love is when you keep reminding yourself, 'Dude, you are screwed'.

Have you ever felt that weakness, weakness when you no longer stay in the world that you are in?
Have you ever entered your kitchen for a glass of water but stood up there for like 15 minutes with a spatulla and a plate in both hands thinking why you were there?
Have you ever waited for 11 PM so that you could say good night to everyone and then cry yourself to sleep?
Have you ever tried hard to control your tears back just because you know you can't let everyone know what you are going through?
Have you ever felt that weak that you being completely, perfectly, medically fit couldn't find it easy to stand on your feet because something inside is weakning you?

If you are happy in love, don't worry, it is love indeed.
But if you are not happy and you still can't hold back loving someone, it is definitely LOVE.

Happy endings!

Do you believe in happy endings? Well, I don't. I don't believe that there's anything like 'happy endings'. And, even if it exists for you, I don't believe in it. 
Nothing ends happily leaving smiling people behind. Not even the ultimate ending of human existence - Death!
I rather believe in happy middles. The moments of happiness are experienced always in the middle. You fell for the person of your dreams in the middle of your story, you marry the love of your life in the middle of your story, you become the CEO of your company in the middle, you will give birth to beautiful kids in the middle, you will buy your dream car, house, everything in the middle, trust me when I say everything, it will all be yours in the middle.
So, I believe in happy middles. 
No one will cherish the moment if you win the world championship on the day of your death but will certainly mourn that moment.
This is why, I am against this philosophy of happy endings. 
I believe in happy beginnings and happy middles. ❤

Suddenly, one day you realize your value in their eyes. Worthless it is! A sudden moment of realisation where the thought of being taken for granted cross your mind and all the past behaviours starts to fall in place.   The moment when you realise that what you considered important or prioritised over others don't even understand the value of the time, feelings you invested in them. And, all those years of turmoil, dedication seemed worthless. Your worth becomes worthless in your own eyes. And, it happens in a fraction of second, a second that helps you clear the thin layer of assumptions that you have formed over the years.

बात ये नहीं थी की साथ उसने छोड़ दिया, बात सिर्फ इतनी सी थी की वो साथ कभी था ही नहीं।

बात ये नहीं की समझती मैं थी हमेशा,
बात सिर्फ इतनी सी थी के उसने कभी समझा ही नहीं।

बात ये नहीं थी की उसके विश्वास तोडा,
बात सिर्फ ये थी की विश्वास जो मेने किया वो उस तरफ से कभी था ही नहीं।

Places like this!

Yes, I am from a generation that prefers night outs, loud music, drenching in the sweat while dancing on those funky fashionable songs. But, I still prefer sitting at a place like this, with a person, talking to him/her, knowing about him/her sipping the freshly brewed coffee, inhaling all the positivity that comes from conversations that take place at places like this. 
I belong to that generation that I won't mind even if I am sitting here with a book, knowing its characters, falling in love with the people in the book, appreciating the words, living a life that the author wanted his/her reader to go through.
Also, if not with a book or a person to talk to, trust me minding here sitting alone will be the last thought that will come up in my head. Appreciating the flavor of the coffee, observing people around and falling in love with my solitude will be my preference because I don't belong to a generation of parties, I belong to a generation of conversations, patience, and solitude.

A pinch of kindness is key!

You know, it is easy to create a life that reflects your values and satisfies your achievements but tough to create one that satisfies your soul. In a society that promotes rapacity to be the symbol of having a good life, a man waking up, going for his job working hard to fulfill his greeds is considered to be living at the maximum. But trust me, a pinch of kindness and a touch of love is all all you need to satisfy your soul.
In this culture that promotes avarice, someone who tries to diverge from the path taken by all, someone who tries to take up an undemanding job and that someone who leaves no opportunity to pursue his interest and passion is considered insane. But you, you, ........... you are not insane. And, if you chose the later one, the world might not support you, but the satisfaction that will emerge from the inside of your soul will be enough, satisfactory enough, to lead a lovely life.
You will be told that a person who abandons to stay home and raise children is considered not to be living aptly, but no, you have to show them that if living alone and not coming back home every night makes you feel alive, you will do it because you don't want to sell your happiness at the cost of their satisfaction.
It is not easy to realise and find out the meaning of your own life, but its allowed because being happy and contended in trouble and confusion is a better than being restless with all the money and a 'perfect life' the society will force on you.
Go ahead and live your life the way you want to.
