Smile and the World Smiles with you....!!

Just the other day, I was having a conversation with a friend. He said that he did not enjoy a movie
because there were just two of them who had gone for the movie. I asked, how many people did he need? And he replied that to have fun he needed 5 - 6 people. And then he kind of made a comment that unlike me, he can't enjoy being alone!

Well... I don't understand how are others responsible for your happiness? I mean, I believe one can enjoy as much as they wish to, with or without anyone.

Before I make any point, let me tell that I am not someone who enjoys alone. Instead, being alone, is
my biggest fear. However, I hate to admit that it has been a lot of times that I have found myself in situations which have taught me to enjoy by myself.

I mean, yes I do get upset. Indeed, I get upset a lot. But just tell me, if I am upset and there is nothing that can be done about it and then, suddenly, I hear the new peppy popular item song and I get up and think - what the hell... sitting silent is not doing anything good. I can sit and cry or I can dance. Dancing is something I love. So, why
shouldn't I dance?

Another time, I was really tired with work... and so was a friend. I wanted a way out. I just took him to a movie... I loved that movie more than anything. Yes, I like to see movies but I particularly enjoyed that one. It is not because I like being alone - but because I made a choice. I chose to be happy.

See... things happen in life. Something or the other goes wrong every moment. One thing will mend only to dismantle another thing. Then, where am I supposed to enjoy?

By this post, I am not saying that we don't need anyone to be happy. Indeed, I am not saying anything at all. I am just showing my own perspective. All I intend to say is - You need to choose. Ofcourse, being with friends is always fun. But for moments when you are all alone - you just need to take control. All other remedies can only work and will only work when once you are ready!




And you know, if ever it happens that you want to apply this - whenever you are sad and alone - do anything. But do something! Don't just sit. Try something new. If nothing, you will get to learn a new thing. Listen to a song. Dance. Create something. I am not tempting you for more solo time, I am just trying to tell you what to do if you have a solo time!

Keep Smiling :)
