Teenage Dream

Without accepting the fact that everything changes, we cannot find perfect composure. But unfortunately, although it is true, it is difficult for us to accept it. Because we cannot accept the truth of transience, we suffer.
Shunryu Suzuki

I’m sure almost all of us teens spend our teenage lives day dreaming about the ‘Perfect Future’ and how everything will go smoothly. We believe that the guy we are with is our prince charming and that we’d get married. We believe that we would get the perfect job, our dream house, car etc. We listen to songs about the happy ever after, girls specially (me included) listen to Taylor swift and singers like her who sing about ‘Romeo and Juliet’

What we fail to realize is that when we are teens, our priorities are different. they are very limited and vague. We believe that everything happens at the click of our fingers. But once we grown up, our priorities change. We evolve as people, and the more of the ‘Big, Bad, World’ we see, the more we realize how stupid we were to have thought that all our dreams would come true. Not that dreams don’t come true, they do, but they are not as effortless as we make them same to be.

What we should realize is that the person we may be dating, would change his/her priorities in the next few years, In high school, they would probably say that they’ll get married and blah blah, but once they grow up, such promises don’t matter anymore. Its not their fault, its not anybody’s fault. As we grow up, we become more curious and more aware of new things that may have seemed as being out of our realm, but when we do have the liberty of choosing those new things, our priorities automatically change. As we grow older, we are forced to make more decisions and this may affect the things that you may have prioritized before. We should realize that we wouldn’t get our perfect jobs the minute you graduate, as there are people with years of experience who still fail to find a job. But what we should ALWAYS, and I repeat ALWAYS remember is to NEVER GIVE UP, because  once you do that then you are left with nothing. You’ll just be a lost soul in the crowd. We should always keep our ambitions high, but only if you are ready to work for them. Don’t expect everything to just fall in place, like the ‘Big, Bang Theory’, because, trust me, that’s not going to happen. Work towards your dreams and know that 5 years down the line, you may not be the same person that you are today so choose wisely and take some risks once in a while. And the most important thing, ‘Enjoy every moment’ cause, you might not get it back.

Life is like dancing. If we have a big floor, many people will dance. Some will get angry when the rhythm changes. But life is changing all the time.

Dilemma

Yesterday, my parents had a huge row over a stupid issue and they said some pretty stupid things to each other which resulted in them still not talking. Now I know that whenever they fight, it usually takes around 4-5 days for them to be normal again, but this time I feel like its really serious and if I don’t do anything about it, then it may end up really bad. I really don’t know what to do because both of them are at fault and non of them want to accept what they said was wrong. Although I feel my mom was maybe a little wrong, my dad totally blew the issue out of proportion, and that’s when things got bad. If he had just answered the question without making such a big fuss, things would’ve been fine. But no…my dad behaved like a child and to top it off, my mom said something that pushed him off the edge. Now, I feel like mom was more in the right and so I’m supporting her, also because my dad said a lot of bad things to her, she is hurt, so I feel like its my duty to be with her at this time. My dad on the other hand was perfectly fine after the fight, he was behaving normal, like nothing ever took place! So I let him be alone and went to my mom and this upset him. I mean how is it even my fault? My mom was in need of me at that time so I went to her. I didn’t do anything wrong. I hate it when my parents fight, I don’t know who to support because one of them will get upset no matter what I do.

Irritating habits

Many a times people have told me that I’m extremely stubborn, and I know that I am but sometimes my stubbornness gets me exactly what I want and sometimes it just irritates people :p I think being stubborn is a good thing as people then take you seriously and they know that once you take a decision, it’s gonna be really hard for anyone to change it.

Another habit if mine that people don’t like is that I’m way too instinctive. I always go with my gut feeling without thinking twice about what’s gonna happen. I believe that when you have the instinct to do something, you should do it. Because no matter what the consequence will be later, at least you’ll know that you took a chance or risk to do something. Many a times people wonder “what would have happened if I had done that?” and someone said ‘we regret more the things that we didn’t do than the ones we did.’ I don’t, because I usually do exactly what my instinct tells me at that moment because I know that, that moment won’t ever come back again.

I’m still a child at heart. I love playing in swings and watching powerpuff girls. I wish I never had to grow up (but then again, most of wish that to right? :p) it’s not that I’m not responsible, I am, but at times I just get fed up of all the deadlines and schedules and wish I could go back to riding my bicycle and worrying about why my friend didn’t pick me to be in her team :p

I love myself! Do I sound self obsessed? Possibly yes! But does it matter to me that anybody thinks I’m conceited? Definitely not. And that’s because I have faith in myself. I don’t beat myself up about small small things and I don’t regret. Have you ever heard of people committing suicide because they feel like they’re a failure? Well that could never happen with me, because even if something doesn’t turn out the way I planned, I wouldn’t blame myself over it because I know that I gave my best but at the end of the day it’s God who decides our fate and all we can do is take a step towards doing something, but even if it doesn’t turn out right, we should always know that whatever happened, happened because there is a bigger picture behind it that we can’t see. There’s always something good that God has planned for you, it just doesn’t come the way you expected it to. So stop worrying your poor head over issues that have already been done and give yourself a pat on the back for being the person you are! Because you are unique. Every one of us is.

Stubborn people get themselves in a lot of trouble, but they also get things done.
Anna Paquin

So that’s my list of habits that people find irritating about me :p but I don’t :p muhaha :p what are some of your habits that people don’t like?
