Pressure

Go back in time and try to remember your childhood…. How was it? Did you have a lot of friends? …. Neighbors…. Kids living around your house whom you played with…. Kids at school… Kids who topped in class… Kids who were taller than you… or smarter than you…

Did you ever feel a pressure inside your heart… to be like them…. to be better than them??
Did you ever feel like someone was teasing you…. bullying you…. being mean to you….

Did it ever happen that you wanted to respond to them at that moment…. but you didn’t....
Something stopped you… from inside… like a fear or some kind of hesitation…

And then you carried it inside your heart for a long time… You thought about it…. a few times.. but couldn’t reply back… Because those kids were BIGGER THAN YOU… or BETTER THAN YOU… or just for no reason…. You just couldn’t say what you wanted to say.

Then you grew up… and in your teenage years… the same thing happened…. People around you were doing “COOL” things and you couldn’t cope up… There was something lacking in you… Maybe they had better friends….. boyfriends… girlfriends… and you were all alone…

You kept a lot of things inside your heart… Your feelings… your emotions… You even hid them from your parents and family members at times…

Sometimes you opened up to cousins or close friends but it was very rare… and many times… YOU WERE ALL ALONE…

You grew up and entered office… and now there was pressure to earn a living… PROVE YOURSELF… get a promotion… or a good end of year rating from your boss… Pressure to get ahead of those buddies whom you met in school…

You felt that pressure inside again…. you could not cope up at times… You looked back at what you had achieved so far and then thought…. I could have done better…

Then came family… kids…. and sometimes… maybe… you were all alone…

It just kept on building and building inside of you….

You thought …. I wish I could go back and relive my life… I wish I could live that part again…I wish I had said what I wanted to… I wish I could do it all over again….

PRESSURE…. PRESSURE…. PRESSURE… and you know where all that was building up……… INSIDE YOUR MIND….

You kept living for years and years and then one day…. maybe today…. imagine…. You have a realization….

“I am not going to let any more pressure build up in my mind.
I am going to speak up what I feel inside.
This is my opportunity. I will live only once and I will make the most out of it.”

And then suddenly…. YOU STARTED SPEAKING YOUR MIND OUT….. to your boss…. to your colleagues… to your kids… to your spouse…

You started saying that ….“I DO NOT LIKE THIS” OR ” THIS HURTS ME”.

Imagine you go to a dentist and the dentist does his/her job and you somehow felt uncomfortable. But NOW… you have your magic voice…. so you SPEAK UP…. and tell them that I DID NOT LIKE THIS….

It may seem hard in the beginning but as you practice it….. it becomes easy…. The pressure starts getting released….

And one day…. if you give yourself enough time…. the pressure is all released and gone!!

Wouldn’t you feel better now??

Life is not a pressure cooker or a race. Life is a gift. (Enjoy it!)

Don’t let the pressure build inside you…. SPEAK UP!! Truly…. honestly…. whatever you want to say….

Ease off your MIND….

The most VALUABLE GIFT when you received this life was not that car or that house… but your BODY AND YOUR MIND….!!! VALUE IT…. CHERISH IT….

SPEAK UP!!!

SPEAK ALL THAT’S INSIDE OF YOU…. NOW IS A GOOD TIME…. If not now… there will never be…

Make peace with your past… with all those buddies whom you are today jealous of…. or don’t like…. SPEAK IT OUT….

Don’t let the thoughts clutter your mind…. Speak up…. The time is RIGHT!!

If you learn to speak up… YOU WILL BE ABLE TO TEACH YOUR KIDS TO SPEAK UP TOO!!!… Who are going through the same phases that you went through…. Don’t let them hide anything from you…

Speak up…. and listen when they speak up!! Get healed and become a healer…. Believe in yourself.
