Yes. I am boring.
(You probably already read it in the heading but I put it in for emphasis)
Yeah. So back to me being boring.
I’ve been told on innumerable instances that I’m super boring, that I do nothing interesting, that I should learn to enjoy my life. Not to mention that as much as I can recall, I’ve been told this mostly by guys, and many a times even by my own friends. There may be some sexist reason at work here, but I’m not going to talk about it now.
This is about something different. This is about individuality.
Just because I don’t like playing video games or watching movies to unwind, doesn’t mean that I don’t unwind at all. I am not even particularly an introvert or shy, if people consider introverts or shy people to be boring. I like talking to people. The only difference is that my forms of loosening are a bit – what can I say – more tranquil, calm and laid-back.
I don’t act on impulse. I wouldn’t prefer roaming around late at night. But some people do prefer that. And it’s okay that way too. Because exciting simply means causing great enthusiasm, and different things could cause enthusiasm to different people.
But just because my idea of relaxation and enjoyment doesn’t match yours, does not mean that I am boring. It does not mean that I am not enjoying my life. It does not mean that I’m always working. And even if I am working, I don’t particularly hate it, even if I may not enjoy it. So it isn’t a form of torture to me, unlike you. So, Yes. I am boring. And there’s nothing wrong with that. Because I’m boring you, not to myself. Thank you for reading this public rant.
This goes out to all the fellow people who’ve been told that they’re boring. It does not affect if said once or twice. But if repeated over and over again, it gets really annoying. So this was just a disclosure to those who call us ‘boring’ from me on your behalf.
WHAT A QUEEN POP OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELL YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
I’m keeping things short so that I’m to the point (also because I’m a tad bit busy that doesn’t affect me). Let me know if you have any thoughts on this
This public rant was much needed for all the people labeled as boring ever in their life because WE RELATE. I’m actually shook that people call YOU boring? Excuse me? Do you even KNOW her? She’s probably and most certainly more intellectual than you. This one was literally on point, and it touched that one part of me that always wanted to express this out. ROCK ON GEET!!
love love the way you write your blogs, because you can relate them to everyone in a way even they didn’t think was possible. I mean I read this, and genuinely got the feeling you wrote this for me, how? i dont know. But THIS WAS AWESOME, you slayyyyyyyyy queen!!!!!!!!
It is awesome
Wow! This one was really really awesome
A great reminder indeed that when we accept our own selves and love ourself for how we are it doesn’t matter what people think. They may call u “boring” but being a so called bore has its own level of satisfaction and fun when you enjoy yourself. Loved this one !
Ps. You’re not boring. You’re cool in your own way and yes I really mean this.
Good one Geet. Being yourself with self awareness…more so being completely at ease being yourself is a trait which most people find it elusive for all their lives. In fact, most people grow old without truly growing up.
You have made a wonderful start in life with such conscious clarity…
A friend of your father
Thank you. It means a lot.
