Pity #FictionMonday

Morning air had a peculiar softness in it as if it had realized that everything else in her life was rough. Niya felt pity on herself.

Pity – lately that’s the one feeling she is in touch with.

Anything good happens to her, she chooses to see it as a charity.

As the morning sun gleamed in the distance, Niya had a sudden urge to stop pitying herself. Even if the universe is throwing these blissful moments at her as a pity, it’s on her to make it to her advantage.

She was done with playing the victim role that moment.

  1. So glad that Niya chose to stop pitying herself. It is so easy to fall into the self-pity trap and lose one’s perspective. Accepting life’s slings is one thing, taking charge and leading is quite another. I hope Niya is headed in the latter direction.
    Loved your tale, Vinitha and loved the prompt too. 🙂
