Hope you’re doing well.
One of the famous phrase I grew up hearing is log kya kahenge (what will people say). I am sure this is quite common in almost everyone’s life. I used to wonder who these “people” are that everyone wants to please. It took me quite a long time to know and understand the concept of this. It’s like we are living a life only to please them.
The other thing that go hand in hand with the above phrase is show off. Life has become a major competition where you’re competing with people of similar possessions. The best expensive hospitals, the best schools, best clothing, best cars, best houses etc.
i too choose the best for myself or my family, we all want best of best right? But the BEST should never turn into a show off!
We humans are never ever satisfied with whatever we have in our lives. The things you own now, was a dream few years back. But we don’t care about it, what we care is about the future plans. The more the wants are satisfies the more you ask for it.
Is the above paragraph based on economics? 🤣Well it sounded like that of a dimension law. Jokes apart that’s been life. We make life so complicated that we often forget to enjoy and believe that there’s only one life to live. For some of them life becomes stressful, complicated, depressed, sad and unhappy. When we start pleasing others that’s when life becomes unhappy.
This reminds me of a recent incident that happened in my life. Last month I had been to my native and I did get to attend a lot of weddings, family function and get together. What I started noticing is that people started asking this frequent question to me and that started bothering me a lot.
“Your daughter is already three right?
“When are u having your next baby”?
“You should have already had your second baby by now”?
Surprisingly, these interrogating questions were asked by few people whom I met for the first time. The first few times I was asked these questions I was ignoring of course. But later on it started haunting me. I was lost in deep thoughts thinking about this.
“The 2.5 age gap is the best age difference between your kids,
“The bonding of siblings are great at this particular time,
“It’s easier to up bring 2 kids of smaller age,
“It becomes difficult once you start growing old,
“My mom will not be able to take care of me and my ‘new baby’ because even she is aging.
And a lot more.
When the suggestions are given by my family members I know it’s out of concern they have towards me and I respect it. But suggestions coming from a random person
I don’t know if all of these suggestion I got is true or false. But it made me sad. I then realized that I am losing my track and this is something that should never ever bother me.
I started thinking about few women whom I know personally and are really trying hard to have a baby. It might be the health conditions or it might be a patience test for them.
What about them?
Trust me these question are not less than a taunt.
so, Think before you speak.
On a happier note,
Let’s be happy! 😊
Let’s not make someone’s life complicated. 👍
Let’s make this place a better place to live.💕
Let’s be a better person. 😍
This is based on my experience. No offence to my dearest people who already have two or more kids 😉
That’s it for now guys.
Until we meet again,
