The voice inside your head

Dear self!

I cannot change who I was and neither do I know who I am going to be. So I am going to write this to my present self.

Sumira !!!!!!!

I want you to zip zap zoom yourself back to your old self who once promised herself that she would never fall prey to any addictions. She will not let anything or anyone take control of herself then why?

Why is it Sumira, that your poor dropping eyes and marathon running fingers are forever crying out for some time off??

But at least I don't spend hours EVERY day taking selfies! Or spend time on Facebook. Heck! I don't even check my instafeed regularly or reply to my WhatsApp msgs.

EXACTLY! And yet you're ALWAYS and forever on your phone. Doing something COMPLETELY irrelevant. You DO realise that you're such a phone slave geek?

You spend many reckless hours matching clothes on a game originally meant for 14 year olds. You fight your sleep only to spend
 another meaningless hour filling colours in mandalas. Your fluttering mind like a butterfly doesn't even settle on one app. You keep hoping from one app to the other.

So much for zero screen time for your kid! Let's face it our kids are a reflection of our own selves and yours comes with your phone super glued to your hands and your head forever swivelling in the direction where your phone is at.

But it is supposed to be letters of love and this just seems to be brimming with hate!

It comes from a place of love though, yes?

Cut down on the phone time Sumira!
