When twain meets

Sometimes all you need to do is stop yourself from turning into someone you are not. Although it sounds doable, it isn’t. Many a times, the difference between who we are and who we’re trying to be is so minuscule that we keep slipping between the two entities. We say certain things because we happen to believe in them. We do certain things because they happen to make us feel better. What’s lost in the deal isn’t discussed—at all. And before we know it, everything becomes a matter of success and failure. As if we’re wise enough to understand the distinction between the two. Who can accurately predict our past? As far as the present is concerned, we are what we are. But at the same time, we will be what we will be. And in some parallel universe, both are the same person. The whole point being what George Clooney told Amal Alamuddin this morning from top of that stage was incredibly beautiful.
