You have a problem that you cannot solve. Confusion, hurt, pain, suffering all twist within you as you search in vain for a solution that'd give you peace. You ponder often, swaying between pros and cons, rights and wrongs, doing what feels right and doing what is thought by others to be right. You talk about it to your friends, your family, anyone who Think may hold the key to this lock that holds within it the treasure of your happiness.

You puzzle for hours, days, months, years even.

The truth of the matter is that it's only You who can do Anything. No one can truly help. They can sympathise, support, predict, make assumptions, give options, retort, judge, regret, even express wonderment at how long you've been willing to carry your burden around. Everyone has an answer based on their beliefs and experiances. Everything makes sense but nothing will click : For you. For you too, will have your excuses, reasons, past and facts to justify every action that can be explained perfectly to you and those around you as well, but no answer yourself as to how to make your ghosts go away.

Call it destiny, reason, or the Hand of God, one fine day a moment, an incident draws upon you an epiphany. A flash of light, breaks through all the barriers you've erected that've held you back so long and free you of their clutches. Then, the solution stands before you like a beacon in a stormy night. And you wonder, why didn't I see this before ? Why did you waste all that time in making a decision that other's could see all the while?

Maybe you were destined to carry the weight all that while, to be liften only when the lessons hidden in the dilemma that had befuddled you for so long. Whatever the reason, and the reason does come forth in time as well, it's Only You and Such moments that shape you, your beliefs and your life !

Be patient, have faith and keep living life to the fullest. For those moments Will come and dazzle you in ways unknown. Don't forget to act swiftly for they may pass you by just as easily ...

True.none can help u except you.
i think the word HELP is pretty over matter what happens all we are taught is to get some HELP.
first things first.
Advisors are never responsible for implementation.they always leave a tad bit of scope for some personal manipulation.they would tell all the knowledge tht brittanica posseses but will end it with the clincher that it is you who have to decide and u who knows urself the best (really..that is a revealeation).
They are great generalisers.and when u desperately need help u tend to override those generalisaitons and are impressed by the insight of the advisers.
moreover,beware that it is YOU who has to implement.when u fail on the implementation of the most idealistic advise tht the advisor or your helper has given,the buck is passed on to u.they are never responsible for what they have advised and that is why you and only you are the ones who can take a decision.because none can empathise more than yourself.none can be in your shoes than you itself.
hey..u know what..i was jsut gona write a post on the role of advisors in our lives and bang!u have written something around it..
and yeah beware about paulo coelho and all those people .they just sell whatever they write.too much of generalisings.
now arun is thinking whether to write that blog or not :)

keep blogging.

OMG Adisha, my thoughts precisely!! I SO and TOTALLY agree with you. I can't tell you how much this feels like my sentiments. But I am SO sure I could not have expressed it better than you!

You take time getting to the solution, but it's only when you reach it yourself does it make sense and puts everything into perspective. Even though the solution may be something that others could see clearly. Until you reach your "moment of truth", nothing that anybody says will ever make sense!
