Most of us are on a journey to a better self, the best possible human being we can be at any given moment. And on such a journey, we are on our own. That does not mean we do not have partners, friends, parents and relatives, colleagues and peers, kids and acquaintances accompanying us and supporting us and giving us strength. What that means it that it is our responsibility alone to make decisions every day, at each turn, taking us closer to that better version of our selves.
Responding gently, rather than through clenched teeth.
Apologising, instead of waiting for an apology.
Saying thank you, instead of taking things for granted.
Sharing, instead of breeding narratives in our mind.
We are on our own, as they are on their own journey too.
