As you may have already known that I write poetry sometimes.
I wrote a poetry long back and asked one of the people who I used to look up to, to make changes to it. She denied it saying whatever it is, it is yours.
I didnâ€™t like her response but there was nothing I could do about it. I recently came across an amazing incident that justified her actions and brought me a deep life lesson.
I recently wrote poetry and showed it to one of my friends to proofread it. As I am not good at grammar, it had mistakes in it.
My friend went through poetry and suggested some changes, and I asked her to make all the necessary changes she could think of.
She corrected some grammatical mistakes, added some beautiful synonyms instead of layman language that I wrote.
End result was amazing. The poetry became much beautiful than what it was earlier.
As I was reading through that poetry again, no doubt it was way better, it didnâ€™t felt mine anymore. I lost my touch in poetry.
It didnâ€™t take me long to realize that this happens in life as well. Often times, we change ourselves completely in order to be liked by a person or society but in order to do that we often lose ourselves and it is not us anymore but a perception of someone else.
Think about it.
