Monday Notion.

It will hurt and maybe will not even stop hurting for quite a long time...

But, after that, it will make you a stronger person.

And you’ll be proud of yourself for the decision you made.

Will things ever change? #mentalhealthIssuesAreNotaTaboo

We sometimes ignore people’s messages when they want to talk to us. We call them names or crack jokes when they might be already upset with their lives. If they share their problems, we call them ‘rotlu‘. If they say they are depressed some of us shun them as if it’s a taboo. We forget we hung out with them in good times when we get too busy to be with them in their bad times…

We all have done such things sometimes.. either directly or even being a silent spectator to someone’s misery. Today we are shocked, tomorrow we’ll forget. 😩

This isn’t a one-off case. There have been many Sushants previously and there may be many like him in our circle too.

According to the WHO, 1 in every 4 person suffers from mental health issues. Sometimes children to sometimes elder people, people from humble background or the high-end class of society. Your class topper, office colleague, your doorman or maid, the guy next door. Anyone literally.

We are all posting about mental health. It’s great. Let’s put it in action. Let us be kind and compassionate. Let us be approachable.

And beyond social media, let us build true relationships with people who’ll hold our hands when things go wrong.

Embrace your uniqueness.

It was just yesterday when someone made a passing remark and compared me to someone who is superior to me in some aspects.

The whole night and the following day I kept feeling bad about it.. I wanted to ask how he dared to compare me and tell me that I’m not good enough.

But when I analyzed the whole matter at some distance, I realized that the other person may truly be good in academics than I’m or have more knowledge than I have, maybe she is indeed prettier or whatever it is…I should not feel inferior because of it.
I guess every one – literally just about everyone has felt inferior to someone else at some point of time in some way or the other. Maybe some one is more intelligent than you, more talented than you, higher educated than you, more beautiful than you, healthier or richer than you….
But we should realize that everyone is unique. We should learn to embrace our own uniqueness. As we do this, we’ll start feeling more confident and at peace with ourselves. The whole society is just continuously comparing and the whole idea now sounds so stupid to me.

Everyone talks, eats, sleeps, or thinks in a different way. So we should stop comparing our lives to others and even if we do, we shouldn’t feel sorry because of it.

P. s. We should just be confident in who we are and stop worrying if someone doesn’t like us. It’s not our problem. It’s theirs.

Happy world wish day.. :)

I asked her to make a wish and she said she wanted to go on a shopping spree with me.
What will you buy?
A quick reply came that she always wanted to have a beautiful pink frock for herself and be dressed like a barbie doll.
Such innocence in her eyes.
Despite of going through so much of pain she wanted to live her life. No wish is big or small and this one would have brought her a lot of contentment and happiness.While volunteering at Make-A-Wish in these last four years, I got the chance to identify and fulfill several many wishes. This exercise of bringing happiness to others also gives the bearers and the instrument (me) a lot of contentment.It also gave me the chance to meet many people, and observe life and its struggles at a close range. I have learnt so many things in this journey of four years…We need to live life to its fullest irrespective of whatsoever difficulties we are going through. We should never stop fighting..We should never give up on ourselves and our truest desires..

P.S. Let us take a moment and think what we want. Let us a make a wish and never leave hope. While we try our best, let’s also believe in God for we never know when God might send an angel to fulfill it..
