I just completed my Degree,returned home after 4 years.Now I was hoping that I will get some rest because the last two months were really hard on me.The temperature was 38 Degrees+ , Exam pressure , Major project , Campus recruitments , other pressures.
It felt like heaven when I finally got back home.I made a long list of things I will like to do.But things are not going the way I had anticipated.Instead of feeling relaxed and having a good time,I feel burdened and its making me feel horrible.
People around me are putting unnecessary pressures on me which is stupid. They keep asking me what will I do after my degree.When I answer,they disapprove of my decision.When I don’t answer,they think I am useless and try to make me feel low.
Some on the other hand suggest that I should loose some weight , learn cooking and get married to a guy in a year or two.Again I never asked anyone for suggestions, I still smiled and kept my composure.
But now I think I am done.Can’t take it anymore! I think people should really mind their own business.I never asked them what they are doing or what they want to do in their lives, so I don’t think they have a right to ask me such questions.Its my life and I know what I am doing.
Right now I am on a break.I don’t care what people think.I want to sleep for hours and hours.I want to watch my favorite movies, eat my favorite food and read the books I have always wanted to read.I think Ive earned this.I want to lay on the grass and look at the sky, I want to count stars, I want to explore new places and meet all my old friends.I want to sing my favorite songs at the top of my voice.
I don’t need any pressure, don’t put the burden of unnecessary expectations on me.And you really don’t need to worry about me, its my life I will always make sure I do something good with it.For right now, just let me be!
Phew, writing all this down feels awesome.
Cheers to everyone who feels the same.Congratulations on Graduating! J
