I was attending a very big fest in my city when I overheard 2 girls conversing with each other and one of them asked the other one “Are you such a despo?” and the latter stood numb.
She behaved as if she had committed some mistake. I don’t get it. Why do people behave like this? Since when did something as simple as a word started sounding so obnoxious.
When I googled the word this was the meaning that I found. So, the next time someone asks you if you are desperate?
Reply them with this:
Yes, I am desperate, I am desperate to learn. I am desperate to earn. I am desperate to travel. I am desperate to spend my earned money my way. I am desperate to read books, watch movies, listen to music, etc. I am desperate to have sex and why shouldn’t I be because the things we are kept far away from excite us the most. I am desperate to find that one person whom I will spend my rest of the life with. And lastly, I am desperate to live my life my way so that when people point out at me, I can tell you the meaning and make you understand that there is nothing wrong in being desperate.
