The World of Numbness

Sometimes you feel a little down, not your usual self. Like the gloominess has engulfed you and drained you out of all the energy. Sometimes you feel…nothing. Sometimes you just shut down. That’s when you actually wake up!

When this feeling of numbness comes over you, you drop the acting, you allow your deep and sometimes dark feelings to overwhelm you. Even though you still keep your walls way up high, and your lips sealed, still you allow your mind to wander to places you haven’t visited in a while.

At that time, you enter your ‘self’, the one that you keep hidden or show only to few. All that is also a part of you, all that is also ‘you’.

You can’t just bag a part of you and lock it up forever, it tends to come to the surface from time to time. Don’t try to fight it, I know I have tried, it only depresses you more. Take a break, take a time alone or with your loved ones, however you feel at ease. Or like me, spend some time with a pen and a page. Let it out. Ease yourself. Try to connect with your ‘deep self’, so you can go back to your ‘normal self’ with a peace of mind.

A Perspective

There are some things in life which make you cry like they happened, the very moment.  You feel the same level of pain, that you felt months or even years ago. Sometimes the emotions get a lot more intense than they were on that ‘actual day’. And you feel like you can never get over it.

I have been there.

You cannot turn a painful memory into a happy one. You cannot turn a loss into a gain. But you can move your focus form the gloomy picture and take notice of the brighter side.

The pain is part of this life, but so is joy. Now it depends on us, which we choose to keep in focus.
