Reflections and more...

When I look at myself in the mirror, more than often I tend to look through me. What I see is not really a mere reflection of a person, but a lifetime. I see people and circumstances. Actions and reactions.

A pool of all of these make me I realise. Everything that surrounds me today, is a result of me. Opposite attracts is a very common perception duly believed by majority. I somehow detest that!

Not wholly though. Attraction is possible. But I am yet to see any attraction holding strong for ever. I rather believe in something more plain. Far less exciting/perilous. It is called 'Birds of a feather, flock together'.

And this is not only true with people. It needs the perfect mix of circumstances, situations, action, reactions, mindsets, and much much more for this very saying to come down into existence.

Hence all good things come at once, and vice versa. You have a bad day at work, simultaneously have health issues when you need to work the most, family problems and hitch with your sweetie pie. Or it could be the other way round.

You start following a particular series on television, or read a particular book, and you suddenly will come across many more doing the same. You even buy something and see an influx of population owning the same!

We live in a world made by our own hands. Everything that impacts us has our name as its creator written all over it...

As humans though, it is our metabolism of sorts to believe otherwise. When things work for us we are happy. But when they dont, somehow we ourselves are never responsible for it.

The reality we create for ourselves, somehow ceases to be real when certain things we do are bounced back at us. We always justify our lies-- the harmless, white ones. But when lied to it is a complete blasphemy!

So when I look at myself in the mirror, I see things both beautiful and ugly. People, situations, and lifetimes...all that are only but a part of me!

Think over it.
