Who Decides What Is Good Or Bad?

Posted by Vinati at 10:33 PM
She is a good girl. She packs her school bag. She completes her homework on time and scores good marks. No complaints from school. No diary notes. Never! She obeys her teachers. Her parents always hear compliments for her. She never lets them down. She is their princess and a good girl.

She sleeps on time and eats on time. She even smiles on time. She knows the manners her mum taught her. An obedient girl. She listens to her family. Never breaks their trust. She talks softly and laughs lowly. She is a sweet girl. She is a good girl.

Her friends are mostly girls. She calls them best-friends. She enjoys their company. She can do anything to keep them happy. She listens to her friends. Never goes against them because she is.....yeah right...a good girl.

She grows. She grows into a young and mature being. She meets a boy. He loves her like hell. He is a pure soul. And she loves him too. They carve beautiful dreams together. Sweet and simple dreams. They want to live a day when they don't have to live according others' wish and can leave the whole world and just escape. They want to spend a day in the mountains. Just a day. They get a chance...a platinum chance. She agrees. She tells her girl friends and hides it from her parents. Her girl friends oppose. STRONGLY! She thought they would understand but forgot that they too come in the definition of what-would-they-say-or-what-would-they-think league of people. They too belong to those who command what to do and what not to do. What is right and what is wrong.

For once she wants to forget what she is ‘expected’ to do or not. For once, she wants to listen to her heart. She knows that she’ll never again get a chance to escape from the notions of what is good and bad of this society. She knows that her past went in making everyone around, happy and content and her future will come and go in the same manner.

She closes her eyes. Thinks for a moment and decides. Yes, she will live for herself for just one day. She will make her heart happy instead of others’. She will take a walk with the man she loves, on a beautiful ally surrounded by flowers. She will leave the will of the people around. She will live.

But is she still a good girl?

Yes, she is still a good girl...

coming out of taboos and sigh a breath of relief... is enduring yet a need.

Good or bad is relative and subjective..if you look back and don't regret anything that made you smile then your still good :D

For once she is listening to what her heart says and for a person, the heart is never wrong. And yes, she is still a good girl. :D

Very Nice Post Vinati! :D :D :)

one man's good is another man's bad-and we can never really please everyone...

at the end of the day, what is important is pleasing ourselves so that we keep others happy too

sometimes it does not hurt to get a little selfish:-)

I have put up a rhetorical question just to show that things which are so easy to explain and understand becomes really difficult in real life situations. Like the one in this post. If anything like this happens in our country then you know how such persons are treated by the hypocrite society.
God knows how badly I wish to blow their useless and pathetic minds off with an air gun.

Anyway darlings, thanks a lot for reading this out-of-a-frustrated-mind post. I really needed an outlet. :)

Nice post Vinati! It just shows how some people are so quick to judge and how perceptions change so easily!

@Chandana
Thank you! :)
And their judgement is usually baseless.
