I've tried time and again to keep my blog as less personal as possible-I vowed to myself that no matter what happens I would not rant about the woes of my everyday living. (although I've ended up breaking this self-imposed rule quite a few times)
I see so many bloggers across the blogosphere pouring their hearts out about life, love and other disasters. And sometimes I find their posts quite fascinating.It's wonderful to have an insight into the lives of others without having to be acquainted with them.
But then again I wondered who would want to concern themselves with the lives of people they barely knew when everyone are so caught up in theirs.
I always thought that I was blessed with a snow-cold heart-one that isn't easily moved. But then I wonder why my eyes moistened when Ofelia, the juvenile protagonist of Pan's Labyrinth, presses her ear against her mother's pregnant belly and whispers to her yet unborn little brother to be kind to her when he comes into existence.

It's amazing how I contradict myself every second isn't it?

I always believed that the past held no importance in my eyes. I was only concerned with the future. I was confident enough that I  wouldn't let anything thwart my progress...that no matter what I won't let sadness touch me.
Maybe that's the reason why my mind has invented this self-defense mechanism where I go in denial mode, shut out all negative thoughts and try and pretend 'I'm fine on my own'.
And I might add that it works most of the time.
But there are occasions when I feel completely lost, want to cry my heart out and feel so vulnerable that it almost scares me.
A bunch of unanswered questions haunt me at such times-
Is this a charade I'm putting up? Which one is the real me?

This post is sounding more and more like the angst-ridden confession of a teenaged delinquent isn't it?
Well that can't be helped. It seems like I'm blessed with multiple personalities.
I have finally understood what it is-the thing that has been troubling me.
I try and repress my human instincts most of the times 'cause I hate being weak.
I hate depending on someone else.
I hate relinquishing control.
But I've realized my mistake now.
Sometimes you just have to let yourself go along with the flow. You have to trust, hope and believe.
You can't renounce the happenings of the past in order to shape a different future.

At this moment I firmly believe in the fact that nothing happens without a reason.
Without painful memories one would never learn to appreciate the worth of happier ones. It's like an unending chain of events where you'll find a new beginning lying right after every possible conclusion.

Nobody can survive on their own.We need friends,family and people to fall back on in times of need.

Right now I'm thankful to everyone who have come into my life in the course of the last 20 years. Sure I have lost in touch with some of them but in no way are they forgotten. And all of them have taught me some invaluable lesson that I wouldn't have been able to learn otherwise.
It's only because of them that I feel stronger, more confident and sure of everything that I do.

True it's hard to come to terms with the changing equation of relationships. But we need to remember that the time spent with loved ones never dies.
With this parting thought I bid adieu my friends hoping for a change you will like to read something angsty and a tad depressing. :P

P.S:YES this is my comeback post.

P.P.S:About the reference to Pan's just happens to be one of my recently watched movies.
Go watch this brilliant masterpiece if you still haven't.
Oh and HAPPY NEW YEAR to everyone!

Welcome back. And it's healthy to be angsty at times, and I did notice that you still managed to keep it quite impersonal (: Have a great year ahead.

Yo man yo! Look who's back from a self imposed exile! :-)

"A bunch of unanswered questions haunt me." Well, maybe some questions are not meant to be answered.

It's really good to put your deepest thoughts in writing, not for the readers to analyze, but for yourself. That's one great advantage of blogging. Writing is certainly therapeutic, isn't it?

Again, nice to see you back in the game. Happy New Year to you too! Have a great year ahead. :-)

Quintessence Of Illusion said...

Welcome back dear.....a nice personal yet impersonal post

Samadrita said...

@Selenium:Yea I hope I'm able to be regular from now on :)

@Ayu:Warding off personal questions can become a kind of a pain.That is why I refrain from making personal posts most of the times.But since I'm human even I'm bound to crack too.

Samadrita said...

@heavalie:Lol sounds pathetic no?Kinda filmy and dramatic too I suppose >_>

Finally a chick who hates cats !!!

☆Ths[Schrei]☆ said...

hey... it's happiness can only be shared... they showed some life documentary of a guy who decided to spend his life in the wild alone and is sure he'll be happy with that. but in the end he dies cuz of eating some plant(a poisonous one) and realizes that happiness can only be shared. it's a nice movie and it's called 'into the wild'...
P.S:Glad to have ye back girl! :)

Samadrita said...

@scarlet pimpernel:Ah there are few wise people in this world you see. :P
Mostly everyone are deceived by appearances.A cat is a useless cuddly little ball of fur which does nothing useful.

@Schrei:Thanks a lot! :)
