The Rose Tinted Glasses

From this side, it all seems so nice, so pleasant and so so so very glowing. My glass is still half full and despite all the dark clouds lingering in the sky, I am still looking for my silver lining. I love these glasses...

I love them cuz they help me never give up. As much as I may crib n cry foul, they do take me through the toughest situations. They make me never give up on my friends even when they are being difficult.

Every time I am let down by something or someone...it hurts. But I carry on cuz my rosy glasses remind me that at least I did my bit and did it to the best of my abilities. They tell me that every time someone has hurt me it might not be their intention and that every time someone does something nice for me; there may not be an ulterior motive.
It might be a dog-eat-dog world but not everyone will back stab you to get to the top.

You are plain stupid. You like them not cuz you are fond of them but cuz you don wanna know the truth sometimes. Cuz you are scared of the true tones of this world and its people.

Remove them, deal with the world as it is and you won’t ever need to cry n crib. It just takes you through the toughest situations but you don’t learn anything out of it and end up being hurt again and again and again.

Yes, not everyone is bad...but get rid of the rosy shades and you will see that not everyone is as great as you make them to be. And so sometimes, you should let go of the difficult ones cuz they don’t deserve to be your friend.

Save yourself the heart break cuz if they are being difficult and do not realize the fact that you have done your bit to the best of your abilities, then they don’t value you. And so they don’t deserve you.

It is a dog eat dog word...get rid of those glasses, cuz it makes even a wolf look like just another dog to you.

Awesome portrayal of both sides of the coin.I feel exactly the same but could never throw away those rose-tinted glasses.That's what keeps life going!

Loved the post sweetie.Hugsssssssssss

August 18, 2008 at 5:44 PM  

It reminds me of the theory- looking glass self.

August 18, 2008 at 6:48 PM  

Anything has two sides, just look on the good one and move forward, that's better than the other choice. What makes us is the choices that we make :)

we keep bumping into too many devils in angels' attire that we think twice before trusting an angel.. and sometimes, we think we've found an angel and right then it turns out to be another one of them camouflaged devils! :|

I guess anyday a better idea would be to steel yourself and go with the flow. It might make you less human, but then, you can save yourself from getting hurt. aargh.. forget it! the thing is, even I've been thinking on similar lines of late...

August 18, 2008 at 8:45 PM  

Listen to your heart only.

August 18, 2008 at 11:50 PM  

@Sam - was much fun talkin to u dear

August 19, 2008 at 1:01 AM  

@Priya - it does? din think tht ways though :)

August 19, 2008 at 1:02 AM  

@Aneesh - wah wah...wat dialogue sirji :)

August 19, 2008 at 1:02 AM  

@Usha - bang on, u said it as it is
it is a constant fite between being oneself and trying to protect oneself too
infact the nxt post in my mind is on similar lines...hope u will like tht

August 19, 2008 at 1:02 AM  

@Hobo - u say it like it is...but thr r times whn u listen to ur hrt n u gt hurt...its hrd to not get confused the nxt time!!!

August 19, 2008 at 1:02 AM  


Its so funny...everything got various perceptions..and the funniest part is that, we get confused which one to believe..

its just go with what your heart says, more importantly, what the heart feels at the moment..!!

August 19, 2008 at 1:13 AM  


ur comment n ur pic with tht guy playin guitar reminds me of this song

dil kabhi ganda kabhi hai nek banda
dil ka bharosa kaise koi kare???


August 19, 2008 at 1:18 AM  

Me vs Myself...its so human

and i agree with priya, does remind me of the looking glass self as well

August 19, 2008 at 1:42 AM  

The Truth is Out There.

August 19, 2008 at 2:18 AM  

common yaar...cheer up !!!
If you will listent the first inner voice you will never be wrong. I know it is easy to preach because sometimes I miss that voice too and I am wrong.
Mantra : listen to your heart only
Enjoy !

August 19, 2008 at 10:37 AM  

Lovely post Div! A very clever one too.

But I wudnt throw away my rose-tinted glasses altogether. And u know why? cos sometimes we just need to ESCAPE, cos like u said the TRUTH aint always pretty. And at those times, its ok to just ESACPE by wearing those glasses. :) HUGS!


August 19, 2008 at 11:04 AM  


I have no clue about whats up.

Just can say.

And cheer up!

August 19, 2008 at 1:08 PM  

life is all about perspective n attitude! the right perspective, positive attitude and optimism will make it worth living!:)

August 19, 2008 at 1:50 PM

August 19, 2008 at 2:01 PM  

I neva realised I had my pair of *Rosy Glassses* long time back.
I use it too.

Thank-U yaa !

August 19, 2008 at 4:06 PM  

hmm...true throw the glasses away :) but then until people have sued the glass and can see that they are seeing the wrong thing,there is no use telling them to throw it off,for they won't be able to see what they should...

August 19, 2008 at 4:22 PM  

we are all human....and are allowed to see reality....tinted or stark naked!!!

split personality? dont we all have it. But i believe it is always better to see th world rather in pink because even then you know it is not all that colourful but at least you have a nice view to enjoy!

August 20, 2008 at 12:25 AM  

@ Lena - lol
Split personality...lol...my frnds jst being sarcastic

*** but at least you have a nice view to enjoy!
LOL...i like tht POV

August 20, 2008 at 12:36 AM  

For all the letters I wrote and can never send
For all the calls that will never get through
For all the conversations that we never had

Wow! It makes me remember one nice peom, ”The Letter” by Amy Lowell:

I am tired, Beloved,
of chafing my heart against
the want of you;
of squeezing it into little inkdrops,
And posting it.

It’s true, we hate good-bye. We know what we need. We need more hellos. But I guess that wouldn't work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves.

Why can't we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together?

Though, can miles truly separate you from friends.... If you want to be with someone you love, aren't you already there? Aren’t?

Most importantly, missing someone gets easier every day because even though it's one day further from the last time you saw each other, it's one day closer to the next time you will.


August 20, 2008 at 1:09 PM  

Hi Divkiran,

First time here... heard from Sameera.

p.s. a request
disable the word verification please.

August 20, 2008 at 8:50 PM  

yeah!! no problem...since m training to be a paratropper... all i am adept at is "dropping in"

August 20, 2008 at 11:00 PM  

***Why can't we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay
Me too wishes the same...sigh!!! i wishi cud do tht, m not sayin i wont be sad ever but it will surely be easier to deal with

***Though, can miles truly separate you from friends.... If you want to be with someone you love, aren't you already there?

It depends really...on how the person responds to u n wht he/she feels for you

***it's one day further from the last time you saw each other, it's one day closer to the next time you will.
Given that you are gonna see tht person again!!!

Thnks for visitin
