Juggling in a Circus

Have you ever felt like you are in a circus, juggling with many things at a time or walking on that tight rope trying to find your balance? Have you ever felt like a clown whose job is just to entertain others or the trained animals who follows the instructions of their masters assertively? If yes, you are not alone in this circus.

A juggler is an entertainer who continuously tosses into the air and catches a number of objects so as to keep at least one in the air while handling the others. The fact is that even I’m struggling and juggling a lot of balls in the air, so that not even a ball falls on the ground. But the ground reality is that, in order to entertain this world of yours, sometimes it leads to collision of the balls, sometimes the balls get dropped from my hands and at times, it drops on my own head so badly that I end up creating a mess of my own.

If you are doing it well, they will overload you with more balls to juggle with. If you are low in performance, you will be thrown out of the circus. In either way, you are going to lose yourself, your value, your identity.

Don’t keep juggling. You are neither a juggler nor a clown, and this life of yours is not a circus. You are not a Superwoman either and don’t expect to be one. Folks, lower your expectations as she has her own pace of doing things. You are not here to please and entertain all, with a heart break of yours. Give yourself a break. Go out. Take some rest. Pamper and treat yourself. If you will not, then who else will? The ring master!




    1. Thanks for sharing your views. I agree we need to take up a lot of activities in everyday’s life. But don’t overburden yourself with all the duties of the family. Seek help. Share the daily chores. You too deserve a peaceful sleep.

    1. Yes dear, we are conditioned since birth to keep others first before us. It’s high time to unload ourselves from the extra burden that we are carrying along with us and pay attention to our own needs also.

    1. That’s true. In fact, sometimes one doesn’t realise the whole life that they played the role of a juggler. It’s important to wake up and realise what are you doing with your life.
