The benefits of being ‘Comfortably Numb’


My dear friend in trouble,


This world will go on screeching and screaming its opinions. They will impose restrictions, speak foul words. Or even worse, cane you till you bleed, to death. 

Be numb, and you won’t feel a thing. You won’t feel those words which pierce and hurt more than stab wounds. You won’t cringe when a nasty tongue lashes out in all its frenzy. You’ll seldom bother about what others have to say. It’s easy. All you have to do is switch off your ears. Let your mind do the talking. That way you’ll hear what pleases you. Switch off your heart. That way no one would be able to move you, from within. No stirring of emotions, no welling of tears. If they hit you, remember, physical wounds are temporary. They heal fast. It’s the emotional and psychological wounds that need special care. 

Tears are not for sale! Don’t be surprised if you suddenly let out a laugh when the entire world seems against you. Don’t feel guilty if you smile without having any reason to. The world may call you selfish, heartless. So what? After all, it’s your right to be happy and nothing in this world is worth wasting your tears on, absolutely nothing. And if you think you have no reasons left, do it for yourself. Or do it to prove to those non-believers in life that you’re too strong to be broken by them. 

This is what I have done to myself and trust me, I’m totally loving it.
