Defying Designs – A to Z challenge

A to Z Challenge: Letter D


Defying Designs

“Do not worry.” 

Do not want to hear it”

Do not bother me”

Do not know if I can do this”

Do not tell me who I am”

Do not say you know me”

“I do know you, I am you”

–This is us talking to ourselves.

Many times we choose not to face who we really are, because we are afraid. We fear we will lose ourselves if we step out of comfort zone for a minute, but at the same time we fear if we will lose it all if we don’t. From time to time, we momentarily de-attach ourselves from others, because we do not want to get our hopes up; they might reject us, hurt us, transform us into someone we are not.  We might even unconsciously omit from telling someone we love them, because deep inside we do not want to get drawn into them, knowing one day we will lose them. We defy our design by doubting our abilities. There are things we cannot do and things we should not do, but we should not stop doing what we are supposed to do and that what we should do to better ourselves and become stronger. We need to become ‘do-ers’ and do hear our hearts and minds. Do tell people you love them. Do tell yourself you can do it. Do not give up. Do move forward.
