Switch off

There are times when i use the switch in my head, and then there are those other times when it goes unused, rusting away...

Off late, i've realised i Switch off when it comes to certain people... I mean earlier i used to just ignore or not care too much, but now complete tune out happening.. Nothing they say, or do goes through me- even the shallow skin surface level. And i must say, am quite impressed with myself.. cos this means i am in full control of my thots, my mind and heart!! :)

Is it a sign of maturity or just a sign of accepting things and people the way they are?
My mom always says - "you wont change, people around you wont change, it will just keep going on like two parallel tracks".. That is so true!! I've known this for a while now, but guess it is coming into action full force now...

Another aspect i've noticed about myself is - life is easier and am happier with this "no /low expectation" philosophy.. Its not that i'm cold or dont care, its just that i've learnt to accept people have their lives, and probably better things to do than deal with my expectations..

It could be phone call
it could be a mail or
Returning a favor or
saying Thanks for something i did or
just about anything under the sun and the moon and stars and the sky.........

But yes, there is that little teeny soft voice inside me that wishes certain people will respond, or give me a tinkle, but alas, nothing seems to happen!! Sigh.. it hurts, but then i just brush it off and keep going... !! Guess thats life!! We have no choice but to deal with it and live with it and accept it!!

Gosh, havent written something this serious in long and being someone who doesnt like to write long posts, am gonna wind up here!! Do let me know how your switch works??!! .. :-)

Switch off when needed ;) switch it on to your friends who really care about you, most important keep the switch to your happiness with you. Never mind if someone doesnot respond, your switch is with you and that shall keep you happy :) I love the low expectation policy, yes when its low the returns you get are pretty surprising :)

Switching off is not a bad thing, provided you know when and where to do that. Interesting post.

I had mixed feelings reading ur post...I was disturbed with the underlying pain, but felt good about the way you have written about it.

Even I go thro such thoughts and even I have learnt to ignore to a large extent.I can connect with that 'switch' so much!:)

Keep smiling.

I know the feeling or rather feelings expressed..switching off ive realized is still a sense of denial..its more about accepting the parallel tracks that works ..

same time as folks think about issues that they just do not realize
about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as outlined

Will likely be again to get more. Thank you
