You are free to be

If someone does you wrong, rejoice.
If someone hurts you or breaks your heart, celebrate.
If someone brings your castle of dreams down with a snap of his fingers, be relieved.
If someone clips the wings of your desires, be glad.

Forget the shock and the disbelief and the pain and the feeling of being betrayed - pay no heed to them. They have no existence.

Because now, you are not obliged to perform.
You are now relieved of the pressure to please.
You can ignore them, or get even with them.
You owe them nothing.
You are free.

Just be - and the rest be damned.


  1. Loved the serenity and the rhythm of your words. Keep it up. :)

  2. Of course one should have such robust confidence to deal with the personal problems of life but it is difficult to get rid of anguish when one is betrayed. A very positive yet subtle post.
