  • Sometimes when I look back, it suddenly dawns on me that I'm strangely alone. So much has happened that has resulted in where I am today. Infinite decisions, choices, paths, ways and people have led the way. In the course of my daily life, everything keeps running and moving on, and it always seems that it has always been that way. But occasionally when I do stop and listen to the silence - the only thing that comes to my mind is - gosh, so much has happened!

    At times, the feeling is good and motivating. Feeling alone sometimes makes me feel independent and responsible - responsible for the people around me and the fact that I can bring a difference in people's lives. The fact that I can and I'm capable of helping them. Slowly as we move on with our lives, many things and people start depending on us. Its never a single person or a bunch of them. Its always a lot that surrounds us throughout. Our notions, our perspective, the way we see the world. It all depends on us and we're responsible for it.

    But at times, the feeling that I'm alone also turns into a sense of insecurity. The question 'What if...?'. Faith is good, as it always has an answer for this question. That's why I always appreciate faith. Mainly because it helps us answer the question 'what if' at those weak moments in our lives. But faith is not taken or bought. Faith is earned. Faith on others as well as what we can do for them. Its earned. The only faith that cannot be earned is the 'faith on ourselves'.

    Its either always there. Or it isn't.
