n-CHESS-628x314

I like this game of chess: it somehow relates with life. It has plans to make; it has moves to be played, checks to be given and on our moves depends the ultimate fate of winning or losing. And there are sacrifices to be made and blunders to be committed.

There’s this thing about blunders and sacrifices: both cases revolve around losing a piece. So where goes the difference? Sacrifices are made by the player in order to safeguard his one valuable piece while forgoing another one for the greater good. While blunders are committed, unconsciously most of the time in which the player lets go of his prized possession whilst he being too focused on other priorities. It took me long to understand what each meant. And by the time I did…

We pen down letters

Craft words

But how often do we express our emotions?

 

We muse

We dream big

But how often do we think reality?

 

We talk of likeness

Express hatred

But how often do we show love?

 

We take birth

And then we die

But how often do we live our lives?

Počet Nápadov Na Tému 13 Reasons Why Quotes Na Pintereste: 17 throughout Quotes From Thirteen Reasons Why

 

The biggest thing is that, even the smallest things that we do to others have an unimaginable impact on their lives.

Someone once asked me if the phrase “Tit for tat” was worth following.

“You feel bad, that means you will make others feel bad too”, he argued.

Debatable right?

I simply shook my head in denial. What he said would have been a more stringent form of sadistic mentality. My motto was simple, people should simply realize that every action of theirs matters. You never understand what the other person is feeling or going through and that what we say or do could actually be the cause of his pain. We don’t realize that an ever smiling person could potentially be depressed. What might be just a life saving lie for you might be a life changer for others. What might just be a betrayal for you could remain as a vendetta in someone’s heart. What might be a game for you, could mean love for someone. The bottom line being, everything counts. Every action matters: good or bad. The difference being, good ones would earn us more of affection and self respect. And the bad ones…if you believe in karma, will probably be bad in reply. But the similarities being- both will affect the other person’s life.

Nightmares are horrifying. But that we don’t understand until we have experienced one.

Butter garlic v/s sweet and sour. Which tastes better???

All of us dream of a perfect relationship with a perfect person and the perfect time of being together. But strange, how this magical dream of an unlucky few get strangled in the test of time. When we think of relationships, the first word that synonyms with that seems to be forever. But do all relationships last forever? Does a chewing gum taste the same forever?

Relationships have often been compared with a chewing gum. That chewing gum could be a classy, expensive one or a cheap unwrapped gum. The ultimate fate of all is the same.

Well, to start off, chewing is sweet and delectable in the beginning. It fills your mouth with flavor and gives you an added satisfaction. That is also how a relationship begins. This is the stage where the guy tries to woo the girl filling her up with mouthful of saccharine phrases. To go with it come his million efforts to impress her with his acts of kindness and all the good qualities man has ever been gifted with. My relationship too began in the same sort. The guy who tried wooing me was by far the cutest guy in our class. He would talk charming, walk charming and be charming. I sometimes used to wonder what good had he seen in me: an atypical average looking girl. He seemed sweet and caring; someone who was not perturbed by my weird antics.

This is how most relationships begin. But one month gone and our seemingly perfect relationship were molded to changes. It is probably that part of the chewing gum when the sweetness declines, reminisces of which remains in the semi-solid, sticky mass.

My guy now seemed to be just a little less caring. But I was okay with it. He betrayed me once or twice, but I pretty much brushed it off. I resorted mostly to the ruins of the sweetness than to the bothering stickiness.

But it didn’t take me long to diagnose my guy with multiple personality disorder (This is something not diagnosed by any qualified psychiatric but me. And it wasn’t a withdrawal symptom either. Nor did it comprise of schrezophrenia or him being Tom once and Jerry next.) He had mood swings. He was a different person in recess. And totally different by the time school got over. Girls are usually blamed for having a two faced mindset; something which boys would term as incomprehensible. But of course, we are the ones with hystera; and hence hysteric. Now, how long could a relationship with two hysteric people last?

The last stage: no sweetness, all that you are left with is a rubbery mass of edible gum. Everything changed: his priorities, his behavior, and his character. And he still wouldn’t tell me what was wrong? He probably wanted me to play Sherlock and probe into his mindset. But not everyone is a psychic. The guy I had once know seemed to have been faded. It seemed as though he was suffocated around me, as though he wanted to run away but I held him with my shackles. This is something I didn’t dream of. This is not something I wanted it to be.

So I did what was right and what seemed just.  You can try to mend your strings. You can try to tie them up. But if the other half burns them down when you’re just halfway done, you can’t help but throw away the strings and search for fresh ones. People might write songs and odes to love but this love is not something which should put your dignity at stake. People are recognized for their self-esteem and self worth. Not for the love of their life. Relationships might be tested with changes. But that does not mean that the ones involved too succumb to changes. I say, respect and love yourself first. And then, you will love your partner even more. This is much better than hopelessly running after a person who wouldn’t care.

The comparison though seems debatable at times. For we see people starting off and ending with the same love, the same respect and the same care. Probably they started off with candies and not chewing gums…
