Daily Prompt: Value

Trapped between words and thoughts of her own and carrying the judgements of people, she struggled to find herself. But it wasn’t that easy and, all she knew was that she was looking for someone she had never met or seen or even heard of. Her entire life she had fought for acceptance for which she gave herself up to everyone every day. She had never known how it was like to live for oneself and in the midst of being what people wanted her to be, she never got the chance to see her, the real her.

Now she stands in the middle of her journey and suddenly she has lost her power to view and think. After all these years, now she realizes that she had never really honored the power of her personal thoughts and instead always gave preference to people for whom she was just another pawn. Neither had she used her vision to see the light she possessed.

Everything about her and in her was largely influenced by people she tried to please and by the people she had been “accepted” by. Those people who had left her alone today. When she looks into the mirror, she simply can’t recognize the reflection she sees. She has no idea what exactly is ahead of her.

Nevertheless, the question is if or if not she can change the road she took long ago! Now everyone who sees her as their expectations can only get her confusions in return as neither does she knows how to feel nor does she how should she feel. Standing in front of her  are the greedy expectations of people. Will these people, whose approval mattered revolt and crush her thoughts again which currently are weak as they emerge or settle all her confusions.  Could, this time, she stand up again if she falls or again she will sink in the ocean of cruelty or can she swim to the land of a new dawn.

All she knows is that she has set on a quest which she couldn’t quit for anyone. A quest to discover the real her which is hidden somewhere to escape the mockery of the world. That for the first time in life she had elected to do something for herself and that she just wanted to succeed in it more than anything else. Whatever the result would be, she was sure that it would be for good. Now it doesn’t matter who holds her hand or who leaves it as she had held her hand and had sat on the boat of hope and faith to make a journey she should have made long ago. May her courage never break and may hope to raise a new faith in her to follow the path she has chosen.

May her courage never break and may hope raise a new faith in her to follow the path she has chosen.

It wouldn’t be easy. Changes are never painless, but they are the rule of time. Even time is never really constant. It changes continuously with which we just have to walk. Now what shall hold value, shall be her own perspective about her. As ultimately, the opinion of the woman in the mirror matters. She never needed people to be her mirror, she never needed anyone’s approval, to know if she is good enough. All she needs is to value herself and her thoughts.

In the end what shall matter is not if the world believes in her, but if she believed in herself. Because the sun stands alone, whereas the moon has stars around it.
