“Once upon a time, she had everything which a girl of her age could desire for. A caring family, lots of good friends, a loving boy friend, and a good reputation. She was confident and sure of her life, her purpose and everything else you can imagine about.
But then like everybody, she experienced a fall from which some succeed in getting up and some tend to stay lying, face down on the earth. She chose the latter and didn’t get up; because getting up just needed a little more strength - strength which she was not willing to give.
The seasons of her life changed, and autumn arrived and just like the trees lose their scarlet and brown leaves, she lost her popularity and friends. She knew what was going on around her and she knew she could change it but she didn’t because during this time she had let other people steer the way of her life and it had became harder for her to stand up with confidence.”
Just like this girl, there are many out there who face boulders on their path, and many succeed to climb over them whereas, many just stop their journey and stay behind. We all have hopes and dreams and ambitions. Yes, even that kid who never speaks a word in the class and rolls his eyes as a reply to everything. And we all have weaknesses as well, even the ones who seem most perfect and in control with life. Here is the funny thing though, our weaknesses makes us stronger because they make us strive for excellence. However, our weaknesses can control us up as well, and that is when our strength is tested. Don’t think that your weakness is a problem, don’t let it overcome you, instead find ways to overcome it because there is always a way out of everything.
Teenage is I guess the toughest part of life, because that is the time when we try our level best to fit in and become flawless. We usually end up caring how we look in front of the people and our friends. But that is the glitch. To appear flawless in front of people, isn’t to pay heed to what they say, it is about being yourself and not being afraid of saying what you think is right. That girl above you read about was one confident chick once but then she started to think about what people thought about her and she tried to mould herself as the way they thought. But thoughts change rapidly and all her efforts went into vain.
Don’t let your dreams and ambition be spoiled with what people think and want for you, because you are everything for yourself. This massive space which is called earth is gifted to you so that you can practice anything over her and be anyone. Make full use of it. Don’t just stop because people smirk at your ideas, don’t think that your ideas or ambitions are insane or not worthy enough because they are not. Everything is possible if you put your full effort in it.
You are special, you are beautiful and you are everything pleasent you can think about. So why change this beautiful and worthy personality for people who couldn’t care any less about you? Be yourself and trust me, people will admire you much more than they would have admired a molded personality.
