The stress in success makes us feel oppressed,
It makes us feel numb and tired, blank and distressed,
But it’s still part of the process and we’re still blessed…
“I gtg””Brb””Ttyl””I’ll message you later””I’ll get back to you””I’m busy atm””I can’t talk rn”
Cut your lies. Throw off that mask.
If you’re so busy then what is with those tear-filled, blood-written, secretly kept diary pages about state of loneliness?
Why does the empty room haunt you then?
What is it that you’re being busy with, anyways?
Work? Money? Boss’s pressure? Mom’s refutation?
As someone has appropriately, already written, “Don’t get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.”.
I bet you! Buy the prettiest dress in the town, shiniest ornaments around and best fragrance to hound. Nothing in world is going to make any heck of sense if you have no one to look, talk, touch, fight and appreciate.
If you already have people to love, love them. If not, find them.
Love them more than you can, care for them, value them, seek out to spend time with them…
Adore, Expect, complain, fight,.
Make it alive despite of risks, Fear of rejection, work/family pressures, insecurities or simply the numbness. They’re all going to haunt one day. They’ll make you feel isolated and worthless. None of the so called success and bank balance yardsticks will work then.
If you continue being passive, the people you love will just leave you and leave forever. Don’t let them go…
It’s easy to get busy. Sometimes that’s easiest and escapists root too,
But you wouldn’t be alone if you talk to the person who you just told to go away.
Tears aren’t optional…. They’re mandatory.
Choose to attempt now than to regret later.
