Rings or Blings

Not having grown up with the concept of wedding rings for men, I fail to notice the obvious i.e. is someone wearing a ring on their left hand ring finger or not? Simple enough, but I simply forget.

Having learnt my lesson the harsh way, now I have made it a practice to observe. And what I have seen is that its either Rings or Blings. Rings say "happily married (well married at least)" and blings say "happily gay".

Blings have potential to become fashion advisors, shopping companions, secret confidantes and great friends (speaking from personal experience). Rings on the other hand, ring alarm bells ansd warning signs "keep safe distance".

This is all for the newcomers in life of course.

For the old ones, they have been beautifully catergorized and fit perfectly in various aspects of my life.

Hope to find categories besides Rings and Blings for the newcomers.

Till then, a toast to old friends- without whom I would never reach where I have today. Love you all! :)

Keep Walking

My game, My rules, My terms.

If you can’t play within that, then don’t play at all. Walk away.

No actually, you know what, I will walk away. Because its not cowardice but intelligence to walk away from a situation that can only be described as #$%$^#@ volatile and way-too-intense!

Starting now, I walk. I just hope I remember to keep walking without looking back.

Because I know, if I look back even once, I will forget the rules I set. It would help walking towards something though…

In-Out-In Again-Out Again-In Again

What gives people the right to drop in and out of our lives as they deem fit is completely beyond me? And why I let them do so is something that will take years of therapy to dwell into.

People should make a declaration before entering your life:

1) “I will be with you forever and ever whether you like it or not”
2) “I am here for you now and will be around as long as you need/want me”
3) “I will be with you for ‘enter definite period of time’. After that I am gone”
4) “I am here for this minute. The next minute I have no clue”
5) “I don’t exist in your life”

And they should not be allowed to move categories without getting prior written permission. In that way the control is in my hand.

On the other hand, I can just refuse people entry in my life and heart. Play the game on my terms. If only I had learnt that!

But isn’t it said that it’s too late to teach an old dog, new tricks?
