So I was at a club yesterday with a very dear friend who I call Angry Bird . We met to talk over something’s we had been discussing for longtime. My friend has an awesome outgoing personality who genuinely believes living in the moment and enjoying it to the fullest. When he gets on the dance floor his energy is at it’s peak.
I, on the other hand, am a very shy and conscious person. I am very conscious about my self and how others see me. When I go to a club you’ll most of the time see me standing at the side of dance floor watching people dance. Though inside I feel bad standing at the side, I still won’t do anything about it.
This was not the case always. A few years prior I was the same happy go luck personality as my friend. I cared a damn about what others think. I believed in living in present and to the fullest. I wasn’t living a my life to impress others. That was until my anxiety kicked in and since then I have become a lot conscious about myself in public.
So me and my friend were at the club talking about random stuff and old times of how good they where. We were talking about how carefree our lives were and how much we enjoyed that time. It was so nice that I wrote a status on FB “Re-living my Past.” And truly I was because there was one more thing that was about to happen.
The DJ began to play dance music and everyone at the side tables got up and started dancing. My friend also routed to the floor since he loved dancing. I got up as well and was standing near to him watching everyone dance. He constantly asked me to join but there I was standing at the side as always.
It took me sometime, after which, I joined my friend consciously just making light movements. After sometime I don’t know what kicked in but then I was like, F**k it. Let’s dance . I told my self no body cares and even if they do it’s none of your business. I and my friend then danced like crazy. We danced for almost an hour with a lot of goofing around and it was awesome. It was truly liberating for me and I was really happy about it.
My friend was surprised since he always thought I did not know how to dance because he had never seen me dancing before. He told me how happy he was to see me dance like there is no tomorrow. The icing on the cake was when a group of stranger bros came and complemented us saying “You guys danced really well, What an energy?
After so long I let my self loose and it felt so awesome . I am really glad I met my friend yesterday because he seriously made me re-live my old self. I felt relieved and free and literally slept with a smile on my face all night long.
The message I want to put forward with this story time is that it’s ok for you to let loose at times. The kind of stressful lives we live in, it is extremely important that we let it out. So please occasionally liberate your self and do even the most cringey things without being bother about others. I’m sure you will love it after all that’s what life is all about. So live it to the fullest.
