Life is not easy when you are a mediocre, struggling Indian Malabar girl who is married and also the eldest daughter and doesn't want to give up on her dreams. With all these "characteristics", comes the long list of dos and don'ts, the perimeter of "social norms" that you are expected to surrender in.
You need to be cool and accepted in the outer world, but you can't have raised eyebrows from your perimeter of norms.
It takes a lot of time attaining this balance, especially when you are a born rebel and your parents never judged you for who you are.
It's tiring, and there are times you just want to quit and go back to the cozy shell of your comfort zone.
But, you wouldn't dare to.Beacuse, you know that, you are not going to love it there.That you are going to keep running, no matter what.That you are never going to stop believing in your dreams. That you are not going to happy being a caged bird.
When you realize that, you stop complaining about your life. You stop comparing yourselves with others. You start enjoying your own company. You start to love people in your life. Your start smiling instead of grimacing. You become YOUtiful. #beyoutiful#randomthoughts#writersofinstagram#agrafort#womenoftoday ...
