We

  • We're constantly telling ourselves not to be judgemental. Would it be easier to just convince ourselves that we are indeed judgemental hypocrites and that there's nothing we can do about it?
  • We ignore the people who don't care about us, because we know there are people who care. But these people who care... do they really care?

  • We waste our time on those who don't waste theirs on us.

  • We expect our bosses to be evil so we can bitch about them during lunchtime. But when they're not evil, we get confused.

  • We look at kids who have no sense of tehzeeb when they talk to elders and wonder what kind of upbringing they had. But if our kids turn out like that, whom do we blame?

  • We are always right and everyone else is always wrong. But once in a while, we wake up in the middle of the night and go, "Oh crap. What if this time I am wrong?"

  • We force ourselves to bitch to fit in. But what if we have nothing to bitch about?

  • We freak out if something is too good to be true. But what if it is indeed true?

  • We try to be the devil's advocate. But sometimes there really is no devil.

  • We are often stopped by a sudden instinct just when we're about to say something. If we still say it, we're screwed. If we don't say it, we are still screwed.

  • We all reach a point in our careers where we go "What the heck?". But not many of us do something about it.

  • We say we're fine in our comfort zone. But if the comfort zone is so comfortable, why are we so restless?

  • We are always on our guard because the world is out to get us. But what if the world couldn't care less?

  • We reject people and things that come our way. If we decide to stop at some point and accept them, we realise later that better things were actually in the path ahead. But if we keep rejecting, we will probably never find anything, or settle for something we didn't really want.

  • We are utterly bitterly confused most of the time.

  • We are not afraid to admit to others that we're wrong. We're just afraid that such admission will come and bite us in the ass one day. And it does.

  • We don't quit when we should.

  • We thrive on misery. Isn't that why we always find things to complain about?

  • We think too much about the things listed above. But sometimes we don't think enough.

  • Blogging helps. But not all the time.

for some of the points, i'd say its due to people's bounded rationality (my rationality is rational than your rationality); for some, its the blue pill vs red pill choice.
things were put beautifully in perspective by Badshah Khan in Khudagawah, Khudabakshe itna mat soch, soch gahri ho jaye to faisale kamzor pad jate hain!

ps: i regularly read and enjoy ur blog. i m angelsera's beau.

Nice post, Sayesha :-) ! And a realistic one at that!

Rays Of Sun said...

Ah! Bitching..well, people who bitch find something to bitch about;) If its not their academics or someone else's success, then it is definately someone else's personal life that bother's the person who bitches.
And what more, they also have pals who claim that they love bitching:))
Anyway, at the end of the day it is just WE and our conscience thats left alone..where do we go from there?

Amit Panhale said...

Commenting after long because for a change I disagree with some part of what you have to say.

'We expect our bosses to be evil so we can bitch about them during lunchtime.'

Yes we expect our bosses to be evil but that is not for the bitching bit, but just because statistics says that probability of getting an evil boss is high.
