You will meet people who will undermine you

or the way you look, they way you dress and even the way you talk

You will encounter bullies of different kinds in different walks of life

In school, in college, in office, at home

They will try to bring you down

They will try to shake your confidence

They will try to impose themselves as superior

They will try to make you feel that you are doing something wrong


Now. Don’t listen to them, they deserve no heed

The fact, my friend, is that they are threatened by the way you lead

Your life, with swag, dripping with knowledge and confidence

Don’t let them bring you down

Don’t let them impact your personality

If it happens in your workplace, don’t panic

Remember, if you do anything wrong in the way you work

the organisation would not salary you for your nothingness

If you are there, you deserve to be

You were screened, interviewed, backgroundified and then selected

No one gets to tell you that you are not appropriate for the job

or anything of that sort

And the same philosophy applies to life in general

No one, and I mean no one, gets to tell you that you are fair

or you are dark, you are fat or you are thin

no one has the right to mock you for your race, caste or creed

to laugh at you for the way you like to be

Blabbers will Blab, You Go On…

It is your soul, your conscience and your roots you are answerable to

If you are right to yourself, if you abide by a civil lifestyle (as in not getting indulged in criminal activities like rape, murder, robbery…)

you can be whatever you like; Gay, straight or Bi,

bald, short hair or spikes…

crop top, saree, jeans or trousers…

Blabbers will Blab, You Go On…
