Yesterday was indisputably, the worst day of my life.
First, my car broke down in the middle of nowhere, and we got stranded on the road for three hours in the scorching heat.
Second, the guy who claimed to have fixed it (which cost us a thousand bucks, by the way) didn’t do jack.
Third, the car came to a final stop again after crawling another mile.
Fourth, it took us an extra four hours to make it to the service station after being attached to a freaking tow truck, and we came back home at 9 at night (twelve hours after we left in the morning).
Fifth, it was the shittiest day of my life, period. >.<
Seriously, I really needed that. *heaves a sigh of utter and complete relief*
Frankly, situations like these get me by the short hairs every time because 1) my family is entirely too dramatic, and if something like this happens, all of them start acting up, and 2) it’s entirely up to the higher power to make things work, which 3) doesn’t happen all that often, because 4) it’s not that big a deal as my parents and my sister make out of it.
It’s like everyone’s speaking, all at once, and nobody is actually listening. 😐
Nano did a wonderful post a few days back (find it here), titled ‘Can You Hear Me?’ and ever since I read it, I’d been meaning to do a reply-post kind of thing for it, but couldn’t find what I wanted to really say. But after yesterday, I think I have a pretty good idea about it.
Nano talked about whether people actually did hear what all you said or had to say, regardless of whether it was important or not. If they did, great. But if they didn’t, it does nothing but makes you wonder whether your story is worth sharing with the world or not, considering nobody’s interested in it. I mean, what’s the point, right?
There’s absolutely no reason for you to lock up your magic inside of you, and let it go to waste like that. Because, no matter how hard it may be to believe so, but there is always going to be somebody who’s listening to you.
I feel lost and unheard too. More times in a day than you’d ever imagine. Trust me, I know it sucks to be alone and to think that this is as good as it’ll ever be, but unlike most things, this does get better. 🙂
Nano, if you’re reading this, this what I want to say to you: I’m trying really hard to hear you. Say whatever you want. I’ll listen, if not anybody else.
Pinky promise. 😀
We’ll get through this together. Like always. You and me, #Naniggy against the world.
Okay, people, time for me to take your leave. Life’s still a mess here, you know. This, I’m sure, won’t get any better till I do something about it. I just don’t know what. I need help, and hopefully, it’ll come to me soon. 😉
You guys, remember to say it all out loud, whatever it is that you want to say.
It’s now or never.
Stay awesome, and stay strong.
