of locked doors & lessons they teach...
Very often in life, you are so busy banging on closed doors, for someone to hear you and let you out, that you sometimes tend to forget the fact that the door is locked from the inside and not from the outside.
People passing by would hear your voice..some would realise what you are doing, snigger at your foolishness and walk away with a joke to recite to their peers.
Then there are those who would watch you from the window & wait till you come up with a solution, a realisation, all by yourself, paying a deaf ear to your cries.
These are the shrewd ones...the selfish ones who want to learn from you, who would wait and watch so that they have a solution, tailor made for themselves--if they are to ever get caught in a similar situation.
Well, ofcourse there would be some who would emphatise with your plight, try attempting to open the locked door, not realising that it opens only inwards (yea, they are too busy feeling your pain to notice, just like you).
but it wont be too long before they too walk away feeling frustrated at their failure to help.
So in the end, its all a waste.
In the end, you would have to deal with it yourself.
So stop being the joke for those who wont stop for you.
Stop expecting help from those at the window.
Stop hoping that those pushing the door from outside would be patient & strong enough to break it down..
Start searching for your own answers---the one's hiding deep within you.
Confront your own insecurities----the one's you have always known and feared.
Accept your own limitations---the one's which you have always tried to ignore.
and last but not the least, gather all your courage and put up a brave fight!!
...because some locked doors open only from the inside...
