Why do you shy,
Why do you fear.
Do you not wish to fly,
Live your dreams my dear.
Amidst the crowd bustling with grades, with one mark above and below being the cause of pride and death, there stands someone who is celebrating only because he/she merely passed. Those who scored 98% are causing depression to 95% holders and 80% is not considered a standard anymore.
Creating a benchmark has become the only goal in everyone’s life these days. Parents already decide their kid’s future, kids strive hard to live up to their expectations weaving their dream into reality.
For those who you think have way far more intellect than you, those who work 14 hours a day and earn a bomb, those who have travelled around the world, those who you think know a lot, be happy for them not envious.
You receive when you give. When you don’t think ill of other’s is when you attain wisdom.
Perhaps you’re not as sharp as others but you could be suave, you might not be as rich but you could be brave.
It’s okay to not get things at one go, does not certify you as dumb. It’s completely fine to earn half as much as amongst your peers, does not make you poor and its okay to not have the same luxuries as others.
If someone tries to bog you down by calling you dumb, you don’t have to think low of yourself because you know they are no one to judge as they didn’t bring you up.
You’re bad at something they’re good at but are they good at the things you’re best at?
One day maybe you’ll be as rich, as smart, as powerful as them but I plead you to not lose the respect you have. Aggression and insensitivity is wrapped around and sunk into the blood of those who are at positions now and however insane it sounds but the truth is yes they scorn the noble souls who brought them in this world, the reason of their existence, “Their Parent’s”
Right now, you’re not where they are but you do have an option of becoming what they are by simple hardwork but they in no possibility can become what you are.
Being an average does not stop you from being who you are!
You are wise, sensitive, sweet, forgiving you spend time with parents receive their blessings, you preach god, you know intellect is not inborn but comes with knowledge, reading and practice, you are fun, people love to hang out with you, you are hilarious, you are smart in your head irrespective of what others think of you because you know and believe you’re good and one day you will make it big without budging from your dignity and self esteem.
I am a happy Average! Are you?
