Lost a way in Pretending

Image
The way we act, things we like, things we do, our wants, our need.. is it what we are? or is it made by the person who we are pretending to be? You must be thinking, I am not pretending, it is who i am. But when you look back on things you did or way you behaved, it is all part of pretending to be ‘you’. When we were kids, our parents told us to play less and study more and we pretended to do so for our parent’s sake. I am not saying it’s wrong but we did because someone told us to do so. And now we are here pretending to be perfect kid to parent, perfect partner to your loved one, perfect parent for your children. We are in constant race of being perfect and in that race we start pretending to be who we are, when in reality we are nowhere close to be who we are. We are always in search of happiness, success or just people. This search makes us empty inside and to fill this emptiness we take up something else.

There are moments in life when we want to give up, there are moments where we feel like a loser and there are moments where we feel that we have achieved nothing. Two kinds of situations normally makes us feel like that. 1) When we have not got success. We always got failure or have to adjust with whatever is available. 2) When we reach high success and then suddenly falls down. First situation can be tackled as we learn to grow and make ourselves more flexible and accept the situation. We feel sad but we don't have any past to compare with or judge ourselves. Even a small success can bring happiness and satisfaction. In such situation we just try to focus and hone our skills.

We blame others or ourselves for decision which lead to failure. It becomes difficult for us to accept failure. We think o
