It’s just a thing, not your life..

Human beings have that tendency to get attached to materialistic stuffs. And we often believe that materialistic pleasure are real. We get so attached to things that we eventually think things are a part of us. Things seems like a human to us.

Recently, someone stole my phone. Yeah, that exact phone which had been in my hand for about 7 months without even missing a day. My phone had been my friend, my entertainment, my answering machine, my storage house, my selfie booth and many more. But within in an hour i lost it.. and it hasnt been found yet. I had a very hard time dettaching myself from my phone. I know it sounds funny, but my phone was pretty much my best friend. It kept me companied, saved me from a lot of awkward conversation/social event and didnt let me travel alone. It had gone on many trips with me and we had shared many beautiful moments. But when i lost it, i lost a part of me. Then i realised, it was just a phone, not my life. 

I realized it wasnt only me who loved her dear phone(tabs,laptops)like a mother loves her baby, most of just do. And they cant and arent able to dettach themselves from it.

Now, the real question is.. is it good or bad? 

I think it’s neither. Too much of anything is poison, someone said. So, I believe, getting attached to stuffs isnt much of a harm, but putting your entire life on a gadget and thinking that its everything(like i did) isn’t good. After all it’s just a gadget, not your life.

A world of lies…

Don’t you ever wonder how hypocrite our society is? It says how accepting your true self wins over external beauty. You can see a lot.. and i mean a LOT of quotes and blogs on being “Yourself”. But when you actually do, someone will surely comment “oh no dear, ┬ádon’t be so awkward.”

Now, i wonder what this “awkward” is. Just because i am not following the so called “trend” i am awkward? or is it because i am being a rebel and not willing to nod to everything that everyone else is doing? I am tagged as “awkward” or “indifferent” from the rest just because i choose to make myself happy and not think about what others might think?

I don’t really understand the core need to be accepted by others to feel truly good about yourself.Should i feel good about me when i am happy with who i am and what i have become or should i get overwhelmed with joy when someone says something sweet about me?We are human beings, and i get the need for “social acceptance”. But, why do we seek this desire to feel accepted so bad that we don’t really see ourselves and our happiness?

The world is full of lies.. they preach about “being true” and “being yourself” but all they ever do is just follow the trend. When you actually be who you are and start doing according to your interest, you have changed some how. You aren’t the person you were… they say.
