This noon I happened to watch a rather interesting movie named Bangalore days. The plot revolves around the lives of three cousins and an amazing story of how their world takes a whole new course.
While watching this movie, I couldn’t help but notice how the main plot is in tune with the concept of pressure that is imposed upon us by relatives, peers, society.
Pressure builds as one is confronted by numerous questions- where you did your schooling? Where you going to do your college? Did you get a job? Did you find a guy? When are you planning to have kids? And again the same set of questions is replayed for your kids.
So what is this? Why do we have to lead such a life, being under the constant pressure of these unlimited, unwanted questions. We came to this world alone, we have the capability to lead our life the way we want to, then why do we pay so much heed to what others have to say. Why should the small talks of the neighbor bother you, why should you live your life, the way they want you to?!
It is all in you. You have the power to overcome any obstacles and you can do so without depending on anyone. In this journey of life, if you happen to find a partner who is well supportive of your dreams, respects your goals, then you are truly lucky. Let not the negative energy of others get to you. Like the old saying, even if a crab wants to move out the other crabs bring him down, this is the nature of the people around us.
But what is important is the voice within you. You know what is best for yourself and what you need to do to achieve your dreams.
