Discretion

In the days when my blog was in its initial stages of growth, I was a lot confused on the way it was forming out. Desperate to get a few readers, I send out the link to a few close friends of mine.

I was under the impression that they would have never even bothered to check. As time passed, I grew in confidence and I totally forgot about the initial struggle and happily went on writing about people I met. That too with the impression that they would never find out.

Recently I found out that the people who knows the real Jon has increased. So it calls for a more discretion and carefulness from my side.

Really? Chaining people’s thoughts in the name of discretion is a great cruelty . So I have decided to go on being Jon as long as I write.

Humans are social animals. But many a times this society chains us within its boundaries. If you dare to break those chains, you are a social outcaste.

I met a friend of mine. He is getting married to the girl he loved. We were talking about ll the wonderful beaches he could go for a honeymoon. He sighed, ‘Dude, what is the point in hitting beaches after getting married’. For him beaches are for young ones without any cares. Now he is frightened that all the guys out there will be gawking at his beau.

yeah, sometimes it's difficult to know what to say when you know you have an audience. but like your friend who's worried about going to the beach, we need to live like no-one's watching and express ourselves accordingly. kudos for realizing that. ^_^
