While passing through the street I saw a girl wearing a beautifully carved diamond ring in her finger. I look over on my empty fingers and I murmured “Why that girl is not me?”

Few moment later I saw a women with flawless skin, glowing so bright like a sun rays in the sky. I touched my rough face and murmured “Why that women is not me?”

I was waiting for my cab on the bus stand, I saw a girl with glittering blue eyes, it made me feel really jealous. I open my phone front camera and started looking myself in it, again I murmured “Why that girl is not me?”

Cab arrived, it was a sharing one. I opened gate and sit inside with heavy heart. Beside me a girl was sitting in the cab. Her nails were looking so majestic seems like fairies gave them a final touch with there fairy dust. I looked my plain, natural nails and again I murmured loudly inside in my heart “Why that girl is not me? Why?”

I was deeply sad, thinking “Why I don’t have diamond ring, flawless skin, ocean like blue eyes, majestically carved nails why?” Why everyday I was comparing myself with others and making my heart heavy? I don’t know.

I put cab window down and started looking outside with my dull face. In a traffic single cab stopped for a minute. I saw few familes made tents with polybags and newspapers which we through in garbage, under highway hollow area.

There clothes were not proper, it was torn out from many sides even they don’t have enough clothes to cover there body in this chilly winter. Childrens were eating that food which we through in the dustbin and still they seems the most happiest people on this earth. Laughing, chit-chatting, enjoying, helping each other without any proper meal, clothes, place to live, yes still they are happy together.

No worries, no sadness, no feeling of jealousy, comparison, hatred only happy faces everywhere. There is no “WHY NOT Me?”

My eyes were filled with tears. I thanked God from the bottom of heart for giving me what I have, this beautiful life, my parents who fulfill my every wish. I found myself the richest one in front of them. I was only running behind the lure. I have tonns of clothes, delicious food to eat, beautiful home to live, supportive parents still I was unhappy and complaining about diamonds, fancy nails.

How stupid I was. If my parents didn’t worked hard than maybe I was also living that life only. I started cursing myself, why I was complaining, see these people who have nothing still they are smiling and look at me who have everything at my level best still complaining.

Through this blog I want to convey the message that what you have, there are many people who don’t have that things also in there life but still they are not complaining. You wish for someone other’s life who is more richer than you but there are millions of people who are wishing for your life even less than that. We human never satisfied easily what we have, we always want more and that greediness made us to forget what precious we already have. Don’t earn too much that at the end of life you left with papers only not relations and love. Earn and distribute your time equally to your work and love ones. Both money and family is equally important as we all know that both have equal weightage. Time is precious, try to give it more to your family and friends because in the end of this life papers will not going to help but family and friends will always going to be your side. All you can take beautiful memories in the graveyard with you not money. Earn but don’t become blind. Be happy and satisfied what you have.

I am really Sorry for posting late because of my research work is going on. I missed writing blogs so much. Thank you for your blessings, patience, care and unconditional love. Always keep showering your love like this. Till the end of this year I ll submit my research work and from next year I ll post regularly. God bless you all. Satna is on your way. Wish you all a wonderful holiday’s and Happy Christmas in advance. Let’s pray for each other and always help needy ones. Lot’s of love to all.


    1. Great Insight. I have a cleft palate and growing up I ran downstairs hoping to see my face as “normal” with no hair lip. Obviously that didn’t happen. Decades later I learned to like the man in the mirror. Tragically I’ve discovered that men living in sin don’t like their man in the mirror as much as I didn’t when I was younger. When all that’s said about life – it’s the person who likes who they see in the mirror that is blessed the most.

  2. A friend once sent me a card with “tongue in cheek” that said, If you are depressed think of all the people in the world worse off; there must be at least 10.” 😉
    Cute for friends to joke, but the reality is we are soooo blessed out of measure. God has been so gracious to most of us, we must remember the words of Jesus, “Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required, and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more.”
    thanx for a great post!

  3. Yes its good to remember we are fearfully and wonderfully made by God – he formed us in our mother’s womb before the foundation of the world! How amazing is that…never compare…you’re special…perfectly made for a unique purpose, for the Lord to use to bless others…they say we never know how we bless someone with a few words…so keep going / writing and may we all have a wonderfully blessed Christmas knowing Christ came for us to share His love. xxx

  4. Ritika, I am so happy to see you have returned to writing! You have graced us with a thoughtful and meaningful piece today. My father had an Italian proverb he would often recite and I think it applies not only to your story but how we live our everyday lives: “I used to cry because I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet.” Well done, Ritika, and welcome back! Good luck with your research work. Merry Christmas blessings on you in the many years ahead.

  6. Awesome post! And I so agree. It seems that we’re so busy watching others and worse, comparing ourselves to others. And it’s never good to compare yourself to another person because it’s a real self-esteem killer. We should all count our blessings, because, as you said, there are people who have it much worse than you.
