What do we do?

Sometimes, we don’t get what we want. Actually, it’s very often that we don’t get what we want. And we are completely helpless to do anything about it. Do we stop wishing then? Or do we carry our wish in our heart, a dim hope tucked away in a corner that the wish comes true; and carry on doing what we have to do, instead of doing what we want to do?

When the choice is between what you have to do and what you want to do, which is the right choice? Sometimes, there are only questions and no answers. And in such a state of mind, we keep up appearances – smiling, laughing, chattering as usual – all the while inwardly cringing to seek a release from all the pain. And yet, the release does not come easy. But we continue, not wanting to hurt those around us, those who love us, those who care for us… But what do we do when we get tired of all the acting? When the burden of our emotions becomes too heavy to carry?
