This is it!

Isn't it crazy how are heart works. Isn't it weird that the person we once pined for .. the moment we heard his name, we got shivers, the moment we saw him, we blushed .. that same person, today doesn't affect us one bit? And the same way .. someone we have known for months or years, can suddenly invoke these feelings in us, out of the blue and we have absolutely no clue how and when and where. We feel like this is it, this the end of everything! But, in reality, it isn't. If this goes away, we'll get over it and we'll get someone else to hold on to, someone else to love. But, no matter how many times we go through this, each and every time we feel, this is it!

Mr. Paanchvi Pass had an interesting point to make on my previous post ... when in love, put your innerself out there, be vulnerable beyond anything comfy. This point brings me to another thought ..... Fear of Rejection.

Why is the word "No" so fearful to hear! Is it because it will be a punch to our ego? Or do we subconsciously know what reality is but don't want to face it? Hearing the NO definitely gives us closure ... but sometimes I feel we go out there and receive the NO "after" we are already on the path to closure. Does this make any sense? You have to be there to know what I am talking about! :-)

Sex and the City :)

"When it comes to life and love, why do we believe our worst reviews?" - Carrie Bradshaw!

I love SATC and the thought-provoking stuff Miss. Bradshaw comes up with. And to honor the movie release happening this weekend, I thought I should write my thoughts on one of her many famous quotes.

Why is it that no matter how many people tell us we are good .. we are beautiful .. we are who they want to be with, when the one person we like or are interested in, doesn't say it, we go through the self-doubting process. We start thinking that there must be something I am doing wrong .. some flaw in me. Have we really started craving pity from others? It's kinda disgusting if thats the case. How do we manage to do this to ourselves? I believe the ones who succeed are the ones who can say - "His Loss" and move on! Of course easier said than done ... but taking those first few steps is definitely winning half the battle.

They love us!

Us desis have always been so fasinated with white skin .. the western culture. Many of us get embarassed of our own kind but are in awe of these Euoropean men who speak broken English in their fluu flaaa accents! But guess what? I was in Greece last week ... and everyone there loved us! They were so fascinated with our looks, our smiles, our color, everything! EVeryone we met was like Indian people are so pretty, they are so nice, they are so cultured! Oh I feel so proud to be desi (not that I needed hot Greek men to inovke those feelings)!! :)
