Just like that- lost

Life is unpredictable. Everyone knows that. But what we do not know is how we lose ourselves in the process of living this life for others.

This life and the peoole in it, their expectations, their demands, specific norms and other stereotypical tendencies make sure that an individual is always on the run. Running for a better job, a better spouse, a better position, pleasing others, bigger house, bigger car, etc.. In that process, we forget who we are! What we truly like. What we truly enjoy. In the pretext of having what others think is necessary and to show others your superiority, we truly forget what is our essence.

For example, a very successful businessman, who has a dozen factories, mills, longest cars, a beautiful model wife and a mansion might have forgotten what truly makes him happy.

What made his heart flutter when he was innocently and uncorrupted. A mother who wakes up each day and starts hustling for her kids and family, she has no time for herself. She has forgotten when was the last time she did something for herself. She is lost in her duties to her family.

Just like that, we lose ourselves for others. Out of love, out of compulsion or out of the rat race to success. Do not forget who you are in the process of achieving what you want to be. The richest man, the best mom, best parent, best student. Keep your essence alive in you. Be in touch with yourself. Smile for yourself once in a while.

  1. Happy Valentine day from Michigan and I agree dear Monika. Some old wisdom from somewhere said. “Do at least thing daily, you enjoy. Find one thing to allow you to feel happiness, to feel peace/calm.”
