Fear of Mediocrity

Image
The day we are born, we don’t know what we want to make of our lives. As we live, we learn about life, we start dreaming and we start understanding our passion and interests. Every kid including me wants to do something extraordinary with their lives. As a kid I always wanted to be a cricketer and I am pretty sure many others like me shared the same dream. The death of this dream was obvious, parents found it impractical, they wanted me to focus on important things like studying and make a scholar out of me. They knew I was not matured enough to take this decision, and so they were right in forcing their decision on me.

This post is about the silence which you feel when you don't get the very thing you always wanted, it is about the silence which prevails when you get rejected by the event you really worked hard for, it is about the pain you feel when you can't prove your self, it is about the tears you get when you don't even get what you least expected, it is about the time when you can't trust yourself, it is about the journey you think was coming to an end and it leaves you to the very spot where you started, it is about the thought when you think life is not worth living, it is about the loneliness you fell even though you have all your loved ones with you, it is about the silence which prevails in your mind thereafter.........


We normal folks don't expect a lot from our lives, but we expect some small things and we even work hard to get them, to turn them into reality. We train ourselves for the worst, but still it's actually quite different when the silence arrives and…
