Sitting in the balcony, me and my sister were discussing how fast the things have changed..
The time where we used to dance in the first rain shower, instead of updating status on our social media about weather.
Where we used to roam carefree without caring about our looks.
Where going out to a fancy restaurant would mean spending some quality time with your parents, instead of showing off by clicking pictures or posting checkins.
Where relationships are rated by the social media posts and heartbreaks take place on a phone call instead of having a real face to face conversation.
When will we realize that our lives are incomparable to the people we stalk on Instagram?
Where are those good old days where we used to value our real life more than our virtual life?
Where we find time for ourselves…
I am sure whenever we realize that life is beyond all these virtual things we will have a grateful attitude towards our life and surroundings.
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.
P.s. Also check out a doodle to motivate you for the week ahead.
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.
It’s easy to take your feelings for granted and to assume that people we care about know how we feel about them. But those we love are quite cognizant of our feelings.
Saying ‘I love you’ is a gift we should often give our loved ones. Letting people know you love them is an important part of nurturing relationships. Few people tire of hearing such emotions and it can bring a great difference to someone’s life and take your relationship to the next level with that person.
People who find it difficult to express their love verbally should not be afraid of expressing their feelings quite often. It is really important at times to share your feelings with your loved ones and to make them know where they stand in your life and how you feel about them.
P.s. This valentine’s day, don’t assume, just express your feelings to your loved ones and make them feel special.
