Blogging and Writing Tips

Q- Quit.

When I say quit, there are a lot of things I wish to quit. The first and foremost would be quit doing things that make me unhappy and for that honestly, I would have to re-live my life back from scratch again.

The one thing I hate the most is cooking. I love making tea, experimenting dishes but only when I am in a mood to do it. The idea to cook every day and the way people think that it’s ONLY A WOMAN’S job to cook food is something I don’t believe in. I believe food is a necessity for every human and even animals irrespective of our gender so why only women need to know cooking? Why not men too?

I just hate the fact that woman is supposed to be this multi-tasking genius and handle the home chores as well as her own career which is actually not that important she can quit whenever she feels like but quitting a home chore or cooking is like never an option, right?

I just hate being this lady-like woman who should know every kind of cuisine and the man can just relish eating, sleeping, and shitting. Now, women who think this is how the world works, men work so hard in the office they get tired so women should work at home. Like really? How stupid does that sound in the era of 2020? You know even in this pandemic it’s a vacation for men but women are still struggling out there.

I can write a book on this topic so let’s cut it short that I wish to quit being this ladylike woman and quit cooking someday, just hire a cook and get away with it. I’d love to cook when I really want to cook. I won’t like to cook just because I am a woman and that’s what I am supposed to do.

I also would like to quit being a people’s pleaser. I have always been this girl who might have apologized for mistakes she never even did, but just to save the bond, or friendships I might have heard the harsh words and still tried to make things work but ended with nothing… I have always been the girl who have been misunderstood and lately I have realized I should never even try to make people understand my perspective anymore. Because if I would have mattered to them, they would have equally given a try, I am not saying I am not at all flawed, but so are we all… That does not mean I should never be given a chance to at least put my point of view or given a chance to explain my side of perspective.

So I give up… I really don’t care anymore how lonely I can end up being but I am done pleasing people. I have figured out a way to survive alone and I am happy in my space now. Because I have realized my worth and so I stop explaining anything to anyone. When someone will make me feel I am worthy and important for them, that’s when you will see me giving you the same importance. But if you choose to stay cold heart towards me you get nothing in return. I will give you the same and maybe a bit harsher.

So yeah! I believe quitting things to make others happy, to be in good books of people, basically, I am not a people’s person and I would like to keep it that way for the rest of my life. My circle is small, in fact, it’s like a dot. I would like to meet some positive, open-minded, and inspiring people who are much more open than people whose perspectives are very narrow and never try to see things another way round…

    I think an easy way to optimise that is to follow the advice: Do more of the things you love, and less of the things you like. And we should meet in person, hopefully next year as Mumbai is in my list.
