Being me…


Of late I have realized I have been speaking out my mind quite a lot. Sometimes it is respected & understood & sometimes it’s not. I am in the process of letting go of my ‘let-me-be-politically-correct’ attitude. Many a times, I am alienated because I don’t speak and cheer for what the crowd/majority says. This at times hurt me. But then, its okay. The fact that I do not have to pretend all the time makes me much comfortable with myself. 

I have realised and I am in the process of internalizing that I am in charge of my own thoughts and beliefs and I can mend or bend or control them. But the same is not for that of others. There were times (there still are) when I thought many a times about what others would think of me doing or saying a particular thing. With time I have realized that everyone else (most of them) is too obsessed with “I, me & myself” to bother too much about what I say or do. It is me & my life that is going to be affected by my words & actions. At the end of the day when I look in the mirror, I should be okay with what I see – and I think that’s what matters the most.

Everyone is blessed with their own unique personality & mindset, etc. The colors I see, the flavours I experience, the smells I love, the sound that appeal to me may not hold an equal significance for another person. And that is perfectly understandable. And that is why I feel, I simply need to concentrate on what I need to do and say and then let things be.

Being myself is easier said than done, but at the end of the day it does brings in peace & is quite rewarding emotionally. My thoughts, beliefs, preferences, views, etc. are mine and I am proud to be me! 🙂


I am linking this post to #MondayMusings at Write Tribe. Click the pic below to check what others are musing over this Monday 🙂



  1. It’s not easy to be what we want to be both inside and out but it is what will eventually make us happy and in peace with ourselves!

  2. Being yourself is not easy, but the more you adhere to that ideal, the easier it becomes. I am interested in what you have to say and share.

    Madhusmita, my son Todd is in Bangalore this week on business. This is his 3rd trip to India, I believe. I am excited to hear what new sights and experiences he had this time when he returns home.

    Hugs, my friend. Just keep being you.

    1. yeah, the journey may be difficult but it surely will be worth it 🙂 Thanks for your kind words, as always.
      Wow Michelle, You should have let me know earlier about his visit here. Till when does he plan to stay here?

  3. Do you. Having an opinion is a valuable asset of your intellectual property. Politacally correctness is a racilly and socially constructed system to censure criticism. Speak your mind be respectful, use your own words, thoughts and discourse that liberates you conscienceness.

Would love to hear your thoughts.........
