Lies

There comes a time in our lives when we convince ourselves that relationships are overrated. It’s a lie, mostly. A lie that brings with it self-imposed solitude. A lie that erects impenetrable walls and severs all human outlets of communication. Then, in an unassuming moment, the lie reveals itself. Thoughts start to become incoherent. We are left confused and questioning, prisoners of our own beliefs. 

“…We are such stuff
As dreams are made on; and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.”  

– Shakespeare. The Tempest.

Hello! I'm Shivya. 7+ years ago, I quit my full-time corporate job and started travelling the world. I gave up my home, sold most of my possessions and embraced the life of a digital nomad. I'm passionate about sustainable tourism, offbeat destinations, solo travel and veganism. If you enjoyed reading this blog post, leave me a comment and let me know. You can also buy a copy of my bestselling book, The Shooting Star. Thanks for joining my adventures virtually! Connect with me on Instagram/Twitter @shivya.

  1. A line from an urdu poem says magar haqeeqat ko jaan kar bhi na jannay may ajab maza hay ..
    Hypocricy is an ingredients mixed in the clay we are made from!
    Very true, what you and Mr. Shakespear had to say! 🙂

  2. Sometimes we generalize things with what has happened to us and not by rational thinking. We are in a helpless state at that time.

  3. Tauseef says

    True, it is a nice phase to be in, and you realize that only later.

  4. @ saadil: I love the line. Thanks for sharing it 🙂

    @ neilina: yeah, im trying to find the fun in it. It’s kind of elusive!

    @ Dinesh Babu: True, I think we are genetically coded to generalize. Working on it 🙂

    @ Tauseef: I hope I do, which will also mean I get out of this phase, thanks!
