P.s. Happy 2021 my blog family. What are your plans for this year? Did you make any new year resolutions (or is it a thing of the past now) ? Would love to hear your stories. ­čÖé

It all began on a Tuesday morning.

We never had any conversation before that day until he messaged and told me that he was just about to unfriend me.
Like who does that?
Messaging a random stranger that they don’t like some of the content that is being posted.

Well well.. He was like that. And to my surprise I shouldn’t have cared about whatever he does with our social media friendship but I went ahead and asked him what was bothering him to that good extent that he decided to take such a major step? Huh!

To which he replied, “We all are struggling in lives and we seek motivational content to keep us going and when we see anything adverse, it affects our positivity.”
It was just one statement that hit me and changed my perspective about the usage of social media altogether!

We exchanged a few words after that but I never got to know him much till that Tuesday morning…

I had gone to a nearby tea stall with my friends when I saw him. I had even given him a name in my head for fun: arrogant social media friend.
He was talking to the chai-wale-bhaiya with so much ease and then sat alone. The first time I noticed how beautiful (can we even use that adjective for males?) he looked, with two dark dimples, brown eyes, his face had a glow whenever he smiled. It was just something magical. And I didn’t even realize I had been actually staring at him for the last five minutes till he called out my name and asked me to come up to him for a chit chat.

I was very surprised to see him unoccupied at this hour and that was probably the first question I had asked him after we talked about our whereabouts. But it was a Tuesday and it was his day off! We talked for an hour and in this whole time I kept nodding my head unwilling to interrupt the story he had started to tell me about his past. We never meet much people in our lives that we want to know more about but he was one of those. And this is one of the reasons why I went ahead and exchanged numbers with him.

It was very interesting to learn we were on the same page about different things and we stayed in touch. There were more such beautiful Tuesdays when I got to see him and strengthen our bond.

He was working hard to get into his dream job. Same time our bond was getting stronger and we had our first discussion about us. (Coincidentally it was also a Tuesday.) But, He wanted to focus on his career for the time being and I wanted to….

We started having differences. It got difficult to even talk at times but we got to a common ground and adjusted with the situation.

The feelings in my heart never vanished for him but distances crept in between us. The hourly long conversations shortened and we barely talked for a few minutes.

Sometime later he called me excitedly to inform that he was shifting to a different city to pursue his dream job.

I had just cut the phone when it came to my mind that nothing was the same. Our bond. We could barely talk for long as things were getting a bit awkward.

But not all people come in our lives to stay. They have a purpose with them which they fulfill in the time they’re around. He was also one of those stranger-turned-friends who made my life beautiful and gave me lessons for life.

I clearly remember it was all about that Tuesday morning when I got a friend for a lifetime.. .

Express your love

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.

Letter To the ones who made me a better person.

Dear you,

I still remember how I used to trouble you due to my not-so-good habit of overthinking and how you would be so patient with me and listened to me till the very end. Calming me each time.

And on the days where I would be insecure about myself and would ask you stupid questions like ‘why me?’ you would give me an hour long lecture as to how I should learn to love myself and would put my demons to sleep and fill me with confidence again.

How you taught me to focus on my karma and not on what others are doing in their lives.

How you would constantly work with me to improvise myself on my shortcomings.

You have pulled me up each time I felt broken and taught me to put myself as a priority and made me the stronger and more positive version of myself that I’ve ever been..

Thank You for teaching me these small litle things that have had such huge impact in my life and for making me a better version of myself with each passing day. ÔŁĄ´ŞĆ

P. S. Would love to know who are those people in your life who have made you a better person?
