Does it really matter?

Today, I ask my self whether it really matters. Does it matter what others think of you? They will judge you anyway, no matter what you do. Is it really worth sacrificing your dreams for what others think? Does it really matter that you will be subject to scrutiny for every decision you make? No matter how small. Is it really worth letting those thoughts slip away simply because you didn't have the courage to listen to your heart? 

Most of the things may not be making sense to anyone reading this. But today, as I was archiving all those old Orkut memories before it gets wiped off got me thinking. What that has to do with this post, I have no idea. Probably due to the fact that it has taken me back through time when I was a lost soul in my teens, leaving me nostalgic in the process. I have come a long way. And today, I'm simply glad that I listened to my heart. 




I guess, it would be better to end up with even not-so-fond memories rather than crushed dreams. Go ahead and follow them. Don't let the guilty voice in your head dampen your spirits. May all your dreams come true, at least the worthwhile ones!

  3. It does not matter at all. No matter how high you reach, people will still try to pelt stones. Ignore them and move on.

    Follow your dreams and strive to achieve it. Even if no body stands by your side, you will not be alone. You have your dreams with you :)

    And that will keep you going.

  4. It surely doesn't matter! Coz even if we stop living our dreams, we will be rediculed! so there is no point in trying to escape from it and sacrificing our dreams

  5. Please remember..you only throw stones at the mango trees which have mangoes and its refreshing to know that when you get hit and also remember the classic statement of the 5'2 genius by the name of Sachin who said the stones people threw at him was used as milestones enjoy being hit unni uncle

  7. It doesn't matter. Even if you listen to someone's idea of who you should be, they'd still try to push their other ideas on to u. And ridicule you when you are down. So best to be yourself and ignore the ridicule and judging,

  8. Being yourself is the best you can do for yourself. As they say listen to what everybody has to tell you and then do what you were going to do anyway ;)

  10. It's so true Aathira! We may or may not succeed but we can always say that we tried to make our dreams into reality rather than just letting them be just dreams!

  13. I keep thinking about 'what others would think'... perhaps I have been brought up like that. Frankly, I hate it!! I'm so glad I have a husband who doesn't give a shit. And so I survive. In this cruel world.

    1. I think most of us are brought up that way. You need a clean an untainted image in the society. But what good it does, I have no idea. Thank you, Nisha :)

      You are indeed blessed to have such an understanding husband!

  14. NOPE it does not matter what people say .. Kuch to log kahenge.. logon ka kaam hai kehna .. so no matter what you do or who you are there will be someone out there who will have something so say about you always ..

    I gave up on that years ago..it hurts and it feels bad but then what can you do .. so the best is ignore and do what makes you happy .. that way at least you are happy and IF you are happy yourself only then you can spread happiness ..

    orkut has bad memories for me :)

    1. Yes, I agree. Now I try to mute out those people and what they say. It works most of the time.

      Orkut has been to good to some and not so good for others. It's all in the past now. So all we have to do is move forward :)

  16. its true no matter what you do, people will judge you. And if you dream to be something other than the stereotyped ones, the number of comments just squares. But in the end, all that would matter is the happiness fulfilled dreams brings !! :)

    1. That is so true, Crimson curls. In the end, all that matters is how happy and satisfied you are with yourself.

  17. People and opinions are things that will always be there, no matter where, how and who you are. Taking it for a constructive ride is all good, but it can't matter beyond a level. It shouldn't :)

    1. You said it, Keirthana. I used to be bothered earlier. But now, it hardly matters. As long as you are happy, nothing else should get in the way. Thanks so much!
