It’s not my “Cup Of Tea”?

“It’s not My Cup Of Tea” is one of the most popular phrases people use to indicate – They don’t think they they can do it OR they don’t think they have any interest in doing that.

When I say popular, I mean, people use it more frequently than they even use their brains!! I can’t really count the number of times people say this in a day!

So my question is.. How do you know if it is not your cup of tea?

The last time I heard someone say “Travelling is not my cup of tea”, I was shocked. Of course I respect people’s opinions, likes, dislikes and everything .. but this is clearly not any of those!

The reason why I was taken aback by the person’s statement was .. he has never travelled even once in his lifetime! All he does is the morning and evening walk to his office and back to home! So now tell me..

How do you know if a movie is good or bad without watching it?

Similarly, how do you know if you are capable of doing something without trying it for at least once?

If trying do no harm to you, why don’t you do it? It is probably because, most of us are in a hurry and so you predict things. And prediction is one of the worst human characteristics!

Here is when you use your brain for literally no reason! It’s ridiculous.. you don’t use it when you actually need to and uses it when there’s absolutely no need of it!

If you hadn’t tried to walk and said ” walking is not my cup of tea, you probably didn’t have to waste your money buying slippers?!

We have a common habit of marking a dead end without even seeing if there’s any possibility of moving forward!

Next time you make an early decision that you can’t do something, check whether you can.. before marking that as a dead end! Because, people who come behind you might take the same path as you did and follow the bandwagon!

So what about tasting it before deciding if it’s not your cup of tea!?

It’s you who make this decision!

  1. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I so much agree with this! Prediction is a worst characteristic we humans possess.
    Loved this post! Quite refreshing. Wanted to read something like this in this monotonous Tuesday morning, sitting infront of the same desk and working 🀦

  2. I couldn’t agree more! How can you knock it, if you haven’t tried it, right? πŸ˜‰
    And just for fun : ”You might not be someone’s cup of tea… but you could be their shot of tequila” πŸ˜›
    Have a great week! πŸ˜‰

  3. Thought provoking. I like the whole idea of not saying that you can’t do it if you haven’t even tried to. I recently applied for a job that I thought I wouldn’t get. I had kept that application since 2018. Interestingly, I got a positive response to my application on the same day I submitted it. Now I kick myself wondering why I waited for so long. Not exactly… ‘ not my cup of tea situation’ but overall, this post resonated with me.
