Why You Should Never Depend On Anyone But Yourself

It's obvious that we all have gone through major heartbreaks. I know, we all carry the pain in our hearts and bright smiles on our faces, just to avoid the void question "are you fine?"

Because though it's easy to say "no, I am not" and explain; we prefer keeping that feeling private. I know, we all have fallen lonely at times. We all have gone through the dark days when nothing seems alright. But at the end of the day, all we want is that one person in the entire universe to understand what are we going through! Isn't it?

The world is a stage and we all gotta play our roles right but that doesn't mean we are always happy. Trust me even I have my shady night and dark day when nothing makes sense and it becomes hard to pretend things. But I guess it happens to everyone right? But we all got to remember that it would pass away, thus time and the situation we are in would eventually pass and the happy days would come again.

Yeah, all of us have that "one person", our go-to person. We all have that feeling within us that we ought to have that "one person" to whom we can go at any hour if time, who loves us and pampers us no matter what and who understands us; be it any situation. But the bitter truth what we need to understand is that the "one person" would not always understand us nor would that "one person" stand by us all the time.


Because not always that person would think like how we do. At times "the one" might have never been in your shoe and wouldn't be able to understand what's going on with you. So this is the time when you have to be YOU! think tall and act smart and stand up for what you think is right. That "one person" is not enslaved to you nor is it his duty to stand for you all the time. Is it?

But at times the one you thought who would always understand the situation would fail to do so! No! It's not their fault neither yours. But does it mean it's the end if the world, no right! Does that mean the relation goes from sweetest to bitter? No, but it's just a reminder to you that it's time we stop being relied on others and stand up for ourselves! It's time we let go of the help from others and do things ourselves the way we want it to get done!

Life is eventually all that you do, not all that others have done to you- good or bad, doesn't matter. Have attachments, relationships, love, hope, expectations but don't let all this drive you. Because at the end, only one person would understand the sole YOU-YOU. So let go of all the clutches of the world and believe in yourself and trust your instincts. Because my dear you are your own Hero and the survivor of your story.

At times life is a fun ride but the other times it might suffocate you and sometimes it might give you the whole damn zoo in your belly. Make each day count, sleep with no regrets and get up with the new filled hope and energy within your soul. Keep it simple. You own yourself No one else does!
