After a lot of careful introspection, ive finally realised that i need to make some promises to myself...
ive made a few before---some ive lived up to..some i have unintentionally broken..each for a different reason under different circumstances.
but promising myself certain things makes me feel better...it makes me feel i have my life under control.
it gives me a utter sense that im in touch with my reality and that i know what im supposed to be doing.
and more importantly, it might just help me gather myself during my weak moments saying "pri, u promised--and here is proof u did that right on your blog!!" and maybe snap me back into my senses..
ok i hereby permit you to remind me incase i choose to forget all about these and drown myself in melodrama (im accused of doing that during my weak moments and NO! i do not mean 'PMS' here)..
just make sure u dont get too irritating ok? :-/
so here goes--for the records and (for all its worth) much more than that:
1) i promise il'l never lose myself to self pity.
2) i promise i wont blame myself or anyone else for things that cant be changed.
3) i promise not to allow anyone else define my happiness for me.
4) i promise that once i get about making a decision, i wont look back at it to see whether its right or wrong.
5) i promise i wont give ppl more importance than what they are worth.
6) i promise not to judge present times on the basis of the past.people change and so do situations.every day is a new day and if something which seemed so perfect in the past does not feel right today, it just means it probably was but now is not!!
7) i promise i wont cry over things which will only make me feel miserable.
8) i promise to stay away from anyone who try to magnify their problems or mine because being at the point i am right now--just on the brink of insanity, all i need is a lil push and i fear i might topple over..sigh! :-/
9) i promise to make books my 'best friend' because even though they sometimes dont live upto your expectations, they never hurt you.
10) i promise not to build up impressions about ppl or things i hardly know.
11) i promise to remember that its okay to be selfish sometimes and remind those who've forgotten, that im human too.
12) i promise not to feel guilty and blame myself for things im only 50% responsible for.
13) i promise not to expect anyone to be half as good as i imagine them to be.
14) i promise to enjoy my present one day at a time no matter what others have to say about it.
15) i promise to put things across clear and straight at the risk of them looking rude.
16) i promise to pay a deaf ear to unwanted opinions, nags and advice.
17) i promise not to put up a happy front all the time inorder not to ruin the mood of some ppl who i know couldent care less anyways.
18) i promise not to allow anyone to tell me what im supposed to do or not do or how wrong or right i am.
19) i promise to always listen to my gut instinct, my inner voice--because no matter what anyone says i know it has always worked for me.
20) and last but not the least, i promise to try my best to live upto these above mentioned promises.
