She has found the perfect spot , hidden by the wide branches of trees near the river bank . She likes the quiet surrounding of this place . Light wind is blowing, river seems very calm . This place gives her a sense of peace and security . She came here to free herself from the demanding pressure of everyday life .From time to time , She needs to get away from the selfish and materialistic world she lives in , she needs to disconnect herself from the egoistic and self-centered people around her for a while .No,not all the people are like that , she knows some very good and kind people too .Sometimes she just needs time and space to clear her mind and recharge herself for future dealings and pressures of life .
Castle or Dungeon!
She has a lot on her mind , she is good at hiding her fears . She is quite reserved and secretive. It’s very difficult to know what’s going in her mind .Not many people know her .The persona that people associate with her is not her true self .It’s all an act , deep down she wants to be understood . She foolishly believed ,someone would see through her act but now she knows that that wait will never be over . She must collect the pieces of her hidden-self herself and she needs to draw the courage to demolish the walls she has created around her . Those walls were meant to protect her not to suffocate her . It’s getting darker in there she needs new walls that will give her enough space to live wholeheartedly .She must revive her identity . She must redesign those walls .She needs a castle not a dungeon.She has learnt her lesson,” To have a reserved personality is not a bad thing as long as you accept yourself fully” . This acceptance will transform her dungeon into a very spacious and secured castle .

We start our lives as dependents . Our parents and elders are responsible for us . We are allowed to make mistakes . Life is fun . We are free to do what we like. There are no burden , no responsibilities . We are not asked to make any life changing decisions .
Alas ! time changes. We grow old , we are given responsibilities , we are held accountable for our actions , we start to race against time . We are to make decisions , big decision . We have to make choices than and there . Choices that we can’t undo . We face hardships , betrayal and rejections . We might feel devastated ,torn or broken . But we have to be strong because we are at that stage , we have to fight our own battles . We are on our own .
With passage of time , we become more aware and learned . In the light of new information and understanding , we are horrified with the choices we made in past . We want to change them , we dream and pray for a second chance but time is not on our side anymore .
The clock in ticking . We can’t go in past , can’t change what we have or haven’t done . Missed opportunities , wrong decisions , unfulfilled promises , broken dreams are all real and experienced by us .
We want to forget , to change , to run , to hide but we can’t , can we ?
Nevertheless, It’s all part of life .We have to accept otherwise we will never be able move on .
Some people cry a lot . “Crying ” is mostly considered a sign of weakness by others . We sensitive and emotional people try to hide ourselves when we are crying so that nobody can judge us .
If you cant stop or control your tears then the next best option is to hide them . This is how our thinking process works . It’s a way of protecting ourselves . So I am going to share some of the methods. All these methods are highly effective .But before you read any further I must warn you , if you get too good at hiding your tears and acting to appear normal , nobody will know the real “YOU”. People see what we show them if you hide all your emotions and do not share them with anyone then people will perceive you incapable of feeling any emotions.
Method 1 : Use Washroom/ Restroom
It is the most effective way. You will get some time alone . Second advantage is access to water , you can quickly wash your face and remove all traces of tears easily. Nobody will get suspicious because going to washroom/restroom is quite normal .
Method 2 : Pretend to Sleep
This method does not work all the time .It is only effective when you are at home and the weather is cold enough to use a blanket . Put blanket on your face and pretend to sleep . It will only work if you do not make any noise while crying.
Method 3 : Hide behind books
Use your study room . Usually people do not disturb during reading . Books provide a good cover to hide your weeping face.
If you donot want other people to know that you were crying ,you need to work on three areas as that can really give you away.
1. Eye : Your eyes will give you away . If you have been crying for a long time your eyes will be red . You will need cool water to wash them.
2. Your voice : Beware crying makes your voice shaky . Avoid talking after crying .
3.Runny nose: Sometimes crying without making any noise results in a runny nose .This is another sign to identify a crying person .
