When in doubt..

            There come times in life when we feel surrounded by the worst of adversities and nothing ever goes right. Every action of ours seems misinterpreted and always results in some disasters. The worst of feelings when the world seems so unfair and all we do just seems to go wrong. These days test us and the strength of our character. The true power which comes from a single source called 'faith'. The only remedy to the monster we created in the expanse of our mind 'self-doubt'. When you feel like no one can understand what you are going through and do not feel like interacting with the human world. Even the ones who care and the ones who matter seem insignificant and just another unbalanced variable in the already messed up equation of life. Why is that all we do ends up in shambles. Is it that we don't deserve to succeed? Is it that we are just not up to the mark that we always thought we were at. The self imposed critical thought that immersing in some activity which will distract and may help us keep the bygones and their appendages at bay atleast for a while. To strive to just stay alone and aloof from the distractions that life presents us. A world of being severely critical of all our actions past and present. A big question mark that hounds our dreams waking and sleeping which doesn't let us rest.

                The question mark on the ideas and principles which were supposedly true all this while seem distantly unreal. Then our mind decides on a path it has chalked out as a reaction and not a response to the situation we have found ourselves in. The reaction seems completely logical and right to us in the heat of the moment. Maybe it even succeeds in temporarily easing out the emptiness which lies inside. But then do we remember that in the process that our actions affect us first the most in a good or a bad way but also have repercussions to the people who have always been around and believed in us. It seems illogical of them to behave the way they do. Our mind is truly is a masterpiece and finds out or in fact even cooks up a proper explanation for our actions which justifies it in our scope. And thus we start our lonely walk on the path of supposed self-redemption. Its tough to believe or even pay an ounce of attention to what someone says and feels the right thing to do. Its truly said that one should follow what our heart says. The inner voice, the instinct. But a reaction to an event which leaves us bamboozled may not always be the right one. Again its a topic for relative conclusions. On a general note reactions more often than not are either inflammatory or seclusive. Both the extremes only could end up in a decision which could affect many a things to come. The only thing which helps at such times to just take a deep breath.. A couple more if you will.. To close your eyes and be aware of all sorts of responses to the situation we are in. To realize that it is truly true that no situation in life is ever impossible to be sorted. May be it is complex and tough for others to understand but life moves on, teaching you lessons on the way. The faith in ourselves need not be affected by any outer events. 
   Its all easier said than done. Its easy to sit in a room with a lappy in front of you and type our sermons. Trust me it is the first step which takes you beyond the threshold and the comfort zones of mediocrity. To have a faith in the infinite prowess you posses and the unseemly solutions which pop up for you as an effect of directed efforts and grit. To be aware that all we see in this world is nothing but a reaction of people and things to the situations they are in. Nothing is personal but a lesson to be learnt at every step, only if we observe and learn. Life's too short to waste it in running away and breaking away from things and living in seclusion from the real facets. To be ready and responsive and not reactive.... As someone truly said...
'Life may not be fair, but it does give you your share of fair opportunities'
Just have faith and grab them and live to fullest with nothing but good intentions at heart for all.. Cheers have an amazing day.
