If I could be you for one day..

If I could be you for one day..

That’s a difficult question to answer…isn’t it?

Perhaps I could be Bagheera for a day 🙂

Considering my friends are from varied fields it’s quite difficult to choose between them. They are either Engineers, Doctors, Bankers, Writers, Dancers, Actors, Politicians, Yogis, Farmers, Teachers or a Soldiers.

Now why this thought came into my mind? or perhaps in your mind?

We see so much of what other people are doing? where they are going? with whom they are going? how much money they are making? what car they traveling in? etc etc; by the end of the day we question ourselves that what the hell we are doing to compete with them?

We forget the most basic thing in friendship..technically we didn’t made friends to compete with each other but to complete each other. ( My principal said that long back).  We made friends because we had a thing with each other. That particular thing is very hard to define ( can be one in a million reason).

Competition is good in fact that’s the reason we have the Olympics but people forget that it’s not about fighting with your opponent it’s about the gold which matters the most. Athletes have no personal reasons to hate or love each other they do it for the sake of the gold. Apparently that should be the way; you must compete all the time but not with your friend on Facebook but for the goal you have in your mind “The virtual Gold medal”. Your friend might be sharing the same goal with you but it’s definitely not a competition with him.

At least this is what I learnt from the Olympics. So next time when I am thinking about you I am not thinking about competing with you but I am trying to learn from you by being you.

And to answer the question although I cannot be you I can still try to be your friend in the best possible you.

Sincerely
