“Love”, the most misused word of this world, has lost its originality and numinous. People tatter your soul and tear apart your flesh in the name of love since they never feel it, they just fabricate it.
Every time, a boy hated my round face and wavy hair, they made me question my Maker that why didn’t he mould my frame like the rest of the girls, tall, slender and having angular faces.
Every time a boy mocked at my makeup-less face, I browsed through the entire youtube to see the never ending tutorials, to look presentable for them.
But my efforts didn’t make them stay because they would go for lodgings and not a permanent residence. It took me many years of my life to finally accept myself. They wanted submission and had cheap lenses to that showed only one view, the view of their own choices. Who lusted after bodies and were afraid seeking the soul.
Boys also go through this torture, when a girl wants him to join a gym, because his chubby physique brings dishonor and social instability to them. Even a pet doesn’t differentiate between two persons and shows compassion towards a kind and caring person. Then why do humans practice such a heinous and horrendous act?
“Love” is a selfless act and should be done with heart and not the eyes. One can’t let go of the criticism done on his body as it creeps through his soul and he crawls back into his shell again, never to come out again.
Relationship abuse is one of the lethal abuses, being carried out relentlessly and brazenly every day. We need to purify our lives by letting go of such filth. (couldn’t find a more suitable word for them.)
Ashfaq Ahmed sums up the definition of love by quoting these beautiful words
“Mehboob woh hai jiska na theak bhi theak lagay”
P.S don’t listen to the abusers, they’re having some serious self-esteem issues and you cannot be the cure. If you let them belittle you, then, you too, are a part of their league.
