A different outcome. Maybe something that curves on the axis of exceptionalism. Something as perfect as — nothing else to compare. Maybe something inside me is dead and I just need to cajole myself to fu*k these thoughts hard every day to gain that one desperate gift of exceptionalism. But no matter how much I tried hard, I ended up fucking it in the wrong way. It’s just not me who felt this, I know. I wanted to understand the mediocrity. Google search handed me over a bunch of definitions to what mediocrity is and I tried to interpret as low as possible without affecting any sense of my existence and ended up to a definition as– “of moderate or low quality, ordinary, low value, ability, or performance.” Does that describe my life? Probably not. Well, to be honest, that’s just okay even if it brings me to that edge point of sucker punches to my high expectations and make me realize that I am an average. And I am fine with that. Because I ain’t wonder woman to get the Godly strength. I mean I am so fucking real that if I slap my butt, it fucking hurts. (In a non-sexual way, don’t distract yourself) Believe it or not, we live in mediocre society and the universe is showering hundreds of online demons that are full of absolute fucks and we end up licking their shitholes just to update our lifestyle as they portray this as –one of a kind of golden opportunity. I mean, seriously? No fucking way. You will be a billionaire like the batman..you will wear superman’s undies and fly like captain marvel and shit like thor with his perfect thunderstorm? Come out of the bubble. I mean, I am going haywire. But hey, that’s what mediocrity would do. It will tie your hands like a puppet mastering the perfect Kardashian body. Would you do that? You should not. Most important thing is to understand that we got to settle with this mediocrity(when we are dragged into this shithole)without really getting affected by it. Go to social media, and you will see tons of posts that’s subjected to mediocrity and sometimes it just becomes unbearable. What is the solution? Just ease up. Believe that the concept of good is enough. The average is okay !! You are enough!!! But that’s not the people around us will say. Do they? I am not mediocre but I am often dragged into this world of mediocrity and I choose to live in peace with that truth. The message that the world is continuously pushing on to us is -Just rush rush rush. Do more. Sleep more. Fuck more. Be the best. Be your perfect version. Slam it. Glam it. Rush rush rush. Perfection is just absolute bullshit. No matter what you do, perfection never settles. I won’t ever say that you got to pursue mediocrity. Never. But yes I will say that if you end up in mediocrity just ease yourself to settle in like a catalyst. We are not all born with the money backing us to be billionaires like Steve Jobs. And nobody is perfect. Even Steve Jobs go through days of learning and working damn hard to let himself enjoy the risk and reward and still fail. And then still learn and accept whatever comes into the later picture. Of course, we can work hard to achieve our goals. But despite the efforts wherever we end up, just accept that with a beautiful smile. Learn to live, not merely survive like zombies. We all have different capabilities that normalize different capacities. And that’s perfectly okay. We all have our strength and weaknesses. But despite understanding this and pretty much realizing this, we might not be the best at certain things that we may quantify as our strength. BUT THAT’S OKAY! If you work hard and dedicate your time and effort you will succeed and get the best out of it. And if you don’t and turned out pretty average, then THAT’S OKAY! Don’t change your mental attitude towards not achieving certain things that you aimed for. You are who you are. You are capable of certain things and turned out to be pretty average but you are self-contented. Because that’s life and out of billions of heads who face similar obstacles and lose similar chances to gain/lose … we are all in this together. Because we all do. A lot of people are afraid to accept mediocrity because they believe that if they accept, then they’ll never achieve anything in their life. This thinking will put you in a dark place. Nobody is perfect at anything. They are continuously moving on a learning curve to attain excellence. They may attain excellence in certain things because they are obsessed with their improvement. The struggle amuses them with their utmost persistence. Even if they fail, they find ways to improvise. You need to open your eyes and hear your inner voice. You don’t need to justify anyone else your sense of perfection. If you wish to be smarter or be more successful by comparing yourself with others, then you will always feel like a failure. If you wish to be the most popular persona and become hungry for attention, then you will always feel alone. And all those you can be extraordinary and achieve greatness talk on YouTube or any other streaming platform is the shit sold for millions that will make you feel good for a few minutes and then back to zero. In reality, all this shit will emotionally and mentally drain you. The stress and anxiety of feeling inadequate will make you feel empty. But the acceptance of your existence and whoever you are will truly lift the burden and make you a happy person. So learn to measure yourself through helping others in need, reading with your dear one’s, learning something new, laughing more often, loving …there is just no end to it. No one in this world can make you feel that you ain’t a happy wonderful man/woman. You are perfect in your flawed personality and unique in your way and you ought to be. And remember the average is okay !! I am an average too. And I love myself more than anything in this world. Sounds boring, eh? That’s because this article is an average too. But maybe it’s average for a reason. Because it is what matters.
