My title might sound like a puzzle isn’t it but it has in-depth meaning. Each one of us in this life of ours invests ourselves for the betterment of others. That’s indeed an integral part of our lives. No man is an island. We are the part of a family, society so we go on accomplishing tasks to meet everyone’s needs.
Have you ever thought over that in moulding others, all your potentials are used up? The same potentials must transform you as well. When asked a simple question, “Where do you find real happiness?” The standard answer, of course, is in my family. But you try asking the same question to your family members. You will be surprised to know that they might list out so many things which make them happy. That’s the fact of life. You too would have been like them as children then why a sudden change. It’s so because you have limited yourself to a small group of people. You call it your small world. That’s right but that isn’t enough. You need to know more about yourself.
Go beyond the boundaries of your comfort zone. Explore what’s there which really makes you happy. It can be anything like eating your favourite food from a roadside vendor, walking barefoot on the road, getting drenched in the rain, playing on a swing in the park. These might sound childish but in reality, it rejuvenates your spirits. You live life to the fullest. When you are happy in the truest sense you would generate more of positive energy in others. The attitude of people towards you might undergo a sea change. A small tongue twister to make this thought penetrate your soul-“You be you for only you can be the real you.”
