A conversation between grief and happiness
One day over a cup of coffee grief… Came and sat next to me and said”, hey how are you? Can u feel me? I am there to stay! ”
“Ok.. Sure” I said with sigh. “U can stay as u have always been my best friend.. ”
“Really”, mocked happiness who has recently become my friend.
Well the two of my friends over a period of time have became close contestants.. To the point where in I had to choose between the two!!
Consider this.. Grief has taken me to all those dark places where no one would ever imagine,
But happiness came and at a time where I would never imagine myself to be..
This huge conflict of emotions, made me come to a juncture where I would not want to feel intimated or inhibited by either of my ‘dear’ friends..
Reason was very clear I felt so comfortable talking to grief that happiness took a toll on me most of the times.
Stay on… Was the message from grief, but soon happiness took over and said move out cause, ” I cannot feel you “!
” Hell u can’t feel grief, it grips humankind, it loves me, and shields my very existence”, blurted grief.
The conflict came to such a hilt that I had to decide between either of my friends.
And to the dismay of grief, I chose my new friend happiness..
Disappointed over my decision, grief said, ” I initiate, surprised over this, happiness said, “this is where u finish,”
Self opiniated grief said, “I lead the path,” Happiness said, ” but I am the destination ”
Grief said, ” I am your shadow, ” Happiness blurted, ” U end where I bring sunshine.”
This brawl was pissing me off as grief
crawled over my shoulder and said, “I may be creepy, but I last long”, happiness smiled and said, ” Nothing lasts forever… What on earth are u talking about.. U may follow me, but I lead the path,”
This is the state of all humans, wherein each day is a struggle between grief and happiness in our mind.
We all go through it, live with it, rich or poor, privileged or underprivileged, what ever the age or gender!
Each time we decide to befriend any one of them.. Makes us or breaks us in the most spectacular manner we choose it to be.
So friends, this is not a choice but a way of life.. U have only one life. Be grateful or regret ful. It’s your belief that what makes ur life worthwhile or worthlessness..
I chose happiness, and grief keeps asking me now and then for old times sake, “when do I have a rendezvou with you again.”
Be very clear about what decisions you make in life, cause what u believe becomes an action and that action carves your path to your ultimate destination…
So control, alt, delete all negative emotions before u upload some positive, sincere and transparent emotions..
In this life or next, grief and happiness would always be there to shake hands with you..
The life is yours, the decision is yours for a lifetime.. live to die only for happiness
