A wise philosopher once said, “If masturbating is the act of sleeping with yourself, masturdating is the art of pleasing yourself to bed.”
(Well, you probably know who that perverted philosopher is! Hahaha.)
On a serious note, have you ever felt lonely, as if no one cared? If yes, continue reading. And if it’s a ‘no’, then maybe you should see a psychiatrist. Everyone goes through this emotion every once in a while. And that is because, for the sake of being optimistic, we have all come to believe in a lie. The lie that we have people around us, and that feeling lonely is just a passing phase. Whereas, the truth is the opposite. You are alone, that’s the ultimate truth; while the momentary feeling of being surrounded by people, and being taken care is a passing phase. You are all alone in this world. You really are.
Parents, friends, lovers, life partners, everyone is going to hurt you and make you lonely – some way or the other. Yes, even the ones you have never expected to. It may not be to the extreme of a divorce, break up, or never seeing each other’s face again (or, it might just be). It may be something as small as someone who is important enough in your life, making you feel less important than you think you are to them. It is might be unintentional though, but sooner or later, everyone is going to make you feel like you are the only one who cares about you. And that’s the truth. So why not make an attempt to please the only person who truly loves you?
Few months ago, I watched a Bollywood movie – ‘Margarita with a Straw’. (Never heard about it, right? That proves that it is a good movie.) It is the story of a differently abled girl, and her struggles to become an independent person. The movie has an entrancing ending where the beautiful protagonist, dressed in a beautiful red dress, asks her dad to drop her to an exotic restaurant where she dates her own self which appears in the large mirror kept in front of her table.
This afternoon, I decided to do something similar with myself. I had heard of this new restaurant that has opened in my town. So, I just decided to treat myself there. Here is a picture of it that I captured using the timer function in my phone’s camera.
Here’s what you need to do. ASAP.
Make your hairs, the nicest.
Choose your favourite outfit.
Take a bath (if possible :p ).
Wear the best perfume.
Go somewhere nice.
And spend some quality time with yourself.
Accompanied your favourite songs, or may be a novel, and you.
(Leave such an impression as if your are trying to convince someone to become your life partner. Because you actually are!)
We spend substantial part of our lives trying to impress other people. Let us all take some time, at least once a month, to impress the only person who actually matters. No one is going to be always with you. Except you. Learn the art of loving yourself, you’ll never feel lonely again.
Have you ever been on a masturdate before? Share your experience.
Otherwise, what is your idea of a perfect masturdate?
(Mine is probably one with lots of candles, Chinese lamps, a soothing music in the background, some delicious food that I have never tried before and no human being in my sight. What’s yours?)
