Authenticity…

 

Dear Me,

When I want to sketch my image
I fail to paint the lines
The roles I play are so many
At times I can’t really tell who am I

My Grades, My Resume, My Relations, My Body
My Income, My Success, My Failures, My Mistakes,
These titles keep reshuffling
N my worth turns into nothing but illusionary

So,
Can you please bereft me of these labels
They can’t come close to outline me
Will you still think I am this endearing
When I present this ordinary picture of me

Authentically Yours…

    “The roles I play are so many, at times I can’t really tell who am I” – that was so beautifully said.

    WoW!! Shefali..touched with these lines,i can relate it very much.You’ve portrayed a bitter fact from these words as somewhere while playing so many roles in life we sacrifice the real “Me” back at lonely corners.You look cool,positive & happy superficially though you’re fighting hard from your inner self.You made me speak more than more always.I must say your ideas & thoughts are exceptional,fresh & beautiful,no doubts HR is evolving into fabulous writer. πŸ™‚

      So rightly said, we live such a superficial life, and we know the truth about ourself which we sometimes are neither ready to accept nor show the world.

      Thanks Prashantt for your compliments, gives a boost to write more… And I am so glad that my post makes you talk more. 😊

    Who are you? When at the end of the day, you enter into your room, thinking about nothing much, just realizing the whole day, a different kind of feel is there all around, I guess that is you. Quite strange though, in this world we only find ourselves when separated from others. Because what you are is not readily accepted…
    All of this I got just from reading your post…brilliant and creative writing..

      Nailed it again Shreyans, you made me very happy by your response. Yes that’s what I wanted to convey, especially 2 parts that when you are completely isolated that’s when you know who you truly are and when you start discovering yourself are you also ready to accept your weakness and negative part of you too.

      For me accepting my negative is the hardest part so I guess my way of telling myself it’s ok. You just need to be yourself, even if you and the world doesn’t like this side of you.

      Thanks a ton for reading n commenting πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸΌ

                You have prooved that you can even make balance finer and sharper than before where both side agreed and enjoy to be together , live together .

                But I have never felt that I could add any value in your thought process. However you are saying so there is no point in denying fact when two candles burn together they produce more flame and better light and no doubt will be helpful for each other.
                If candles are placed in two different direction no apprehension that they will illuminate more and not only be beneficial for self but other path followers who has to move in same direction. Here being of candle in two direction may be considered as when ever we have difference of opinion and burning together means when ever we are one on same subject. If intention are good either way it’s beneficial of self and others. Other’s here can be denoted as who read our comments.

                So it’s win win not only both side but in every possible direction.

                  Agree with candle analogy, and yes it’s a win win situation.

                  And there has never been a soul I have met, either in the blogging world or met them physically hasn’t benefited me. They either teach me something about me or they inspire me in some way or the other. I may not always follow their path, it’s more like if he can do it so can I.
                  Didn’t I say I have sharp observation skills. 😊
                  Right now I am taking from bloggers more than giving frankly. The giving is taking its time 😊

                  Have a Good night
                  Till the next blogging debate 😊

                    You doubt you have ability to understand humans and guide them. Expressing the your point of you and explaining them. Listening to them and lead them and be together with them.

                    It’s direct complement. I don’t need reply.

                    Have great time here and now !😊

    These tags are more for the world than for our sake. Atleast in our own mind and heart we need to be ourselves; a deserving, loving and totally cool person everyone loves to be with. Including our own self! ☺☺
    Nice post. ☺

      Thanks Varsh, the thing is I have been defining myself for so long as per these tags, that now when things have gone into… I don’t know where phase, the finding “me” has become my need…. I have realised half the problems in life disappear if you just know who n what you are 😊

        I know! I have done posts on a similar theme. It gets tiring to live our lives when we’re simply tagged as someone’s someone. What about our individuality and our existence?
        Realising is the first step towards achieving. Glad you took the step. ☺

        You can say it’s half I can say it’s 99.99 % issues can be addressed if you identify correctly who you are ?

        Who am I is very fundamental question of life. If answered you are beyond problems. It’s like bridge and river of problems has to flow under you. You are always untouched.

            It’s a not less than reward indeed. Being heard and being understood is solace ultimate solace to being expressed.

                I accept , if I have gone much far this time, but that was the state of mind when I wrote previous comment. I can assure you that it was the honest expression.

                People do agree with me, but have not seen that much degree of confidence .

                It’s just an compliment and always say accepting the compliment gracefully is an art to learn . Just respect the intensions words may express different meanings in different context.

                Have good time !😊

    So true Shefali. We let all the external labels define who we are ….in the process we fail to recognize our own self. I am sure meeting the ” me ” without these tags will be a pretty interesting encounter.
    Loved the idea πŸ‘Œ
