Day 209


Subdue your passion or it will subdue you. – Horace

It’s 10: 00 PM on day 209 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself rice and curry for brunch, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours – no luck – feed myself bread and peas curry for dinner and tweet about my campaign some more – still no luck.

Today as I was lying on my bed tweeting about my campaign in excruciating pain I came to the realization that nothing, not even the betterment of the world was worth sacrificing myself over with that said although I will still work hard for my campaign and feeding scheme my first priority is to gain independence from my parents and become more whole as a human being because at the end of the day I am of no use to the world if I’m empty. Is your passion slowly killing you?

  1. Nisha, please take care of yourself. Sometimes balance is needed. We are mindful of others but not at the cost of our own health.

  2. Passion can be a servant or a master. The latter will make you its broken, dumb servant. The former will carry you up mountains, through trials and tribulations, and across great distances.
