“It’s better to be a hero for the unknown than being your own demon. “
– Dee Kay
I always wanted to be someone I wasn’t, just because I thought being that person would make me feel happy. I use to run away from my flaws because I was too insecure of seeing some flawless characters, either in novels or movies. I was a kid who never had a plan but knew what his destination should be.
Then LIFE HAPPENED.
From running away from my flaws to accepting my flawless imperfections, I became the man I deserve to be rather than wanted to be. My insecurities became the source of inspiration for my writing. My imperfections made me realize that I am nobody to judge others. The only person who I have the capacity to judge is the same guy I saw in the mirror.
As a kid I never had plans and as a grown up I always had plans. The only similarity was that both of my ways never really worked for me. I never really learned to listen to what made my soul happy and excited. I was running behind the dream which was sold to me by my school, by this society and unknowingly by my parents. I kept on falling over and over again as every time I failed in something a part of my soul was taken away from me.
I was an constant reminder of what happens to a person who doesn’t know himself. The pressure to succeed was so immense that I cut myself from everyone I ever knew. Every time someone laughed I thought I was the butt of everyone’s jokes. The insecurities started taking grip over me as I became the prisoner of my own hopes.
That’s LIFE !!
No matter what you do it will always find a way to make you fall one way or the other. That’s it’s job as life.
Your job is simple. Fall and get up again no matter how many times you have to repeat the same shitty process.
Will all prey on your soul, self confidence and ultimately your happiness.
What can you do about it ?
Seek the advice of the person who knows your life and has walked in your shoes. Ask me who that person is…
Keep spreading love.
Go write your flawlessly imperfect story.
