Sharing the light

My Grandpa used to say, “whatever you give to this world will take a full round and return to you”. 

I grew up to realize it was just another phony quote. Life wasn’t fair.

Then I gradually learned it was actually true. The thing is we expect it to return from the same source/person.

Like, if we gave somebody a piece of bread. We expect we will get same or at least something similar from the same person soon. This is not how it works.

Somebody else gives us something else, some other time.

Day before yesterday I was dying and crying with anxiety. The thought of moving to a new place was terrorizing me. What’s going to happen?? What if I do this wrong?? The constant fear of unknown was eating up my brain.

Then you guys stepped in, people who don’t even know me and don’t even care about it. You guys comforted me with your sweet Witty words and helped me calm down considerably.

It’s such an amazing feeling to know that there are people out there who just care for you. It doesn’t matter to them, who you are, what you do…they are just kind towards you unconditionally.

I think that’s what my Grandpa was talking about.

I have been a crazy clingy person. I was the one who always ran after my family and friends, kept checking on them, fought for them, tried my best to be there for them. People would say I am doing wrong, because I wasn’t getting the same in return. Not even close. They thought I am just wasting my time and energy.

But look at this! I am getting the fruit from somewhere else…this place.

I can’t thank you all enough.
This is what I mean by “to be there for people, we don’t know what they are going through.”

Everybody deserves to feel happy, loved, respected and cared for. Compassion is a necessity, we all need it for survival.

Well. I can go on and on.

I am following suggestions from all of you, unpacking with patience and I am actually enjoying it.

I won’t be able to read much as I don’t have wifi connetion till 3rd October. And I have drained my mobile data on cubism videos. But still if there is anything important you guys can leave me a comment here and I will get in touch asap. I don’t think you can still see contact form, will try to fix it soon.

Thanks for sharing your own light to illuminate the darkness of my day. All of this means a lot to me 🙂

  1. oh….that anxiety was….as you were moving to a new place….? I checked the definition of anxiety in many dictionaries….none gave the nuance of excitement….?The packing and unpacking exercise is really awesome….however now….a new look to your room….walls changed….windows changed….as if you have come to a hotel….but then….we need to put life into it…..

  2. When I was in my mid-twenties, I moved 3000 miles away from home. Previously, I had always lived within an hour drive of my parents. I ended up moving closer to home a year later, but that year was one of the best personal growth years of my life. I made new friends; I created a new support system; and I reconnected with an old friend in that area. Embrace the adventure–this will be an incredible experience!

  3. Hope you are all settled and enjoying your new adventure. As someone who has relocated many times, I find the packing up a wonderful experience as it forces me to let go. Then once in the new place starting fresh is a refreshing experience, meeting new people is such fun, and exploring new places makes it feel like a working vacation. Wishing you a blessed New Year!!

    1. yes I am settled. everyday is a new adventure.
      I haven’t met many people here I didn’t get a chance to socialize with neighbors as yet. its more of a you-live-your-life-let-me-live-mine place and I actually prefer it.
      overall the change has been a blessing.

      Happy new year to you too 🙂
