Most people state the meaning of therapy to vent out your frustration and be heard – including my therapist.
I realised this off-late, when I wasn’t feeling energetic after therapy – because I was venting out.
My real nature is let go of the past, and have solutions.
Which is quite different from the listening nature of therapy.
So I decided to call off therapy sessions – mostly because of the reason that I have the biggest therapist God. I just need to tune in to him more often.
- Be unkind to them.
- Do not respond to their messages/emails.
- Be rigid in asking for things you need from them.
In the short term, it feels like the best thing to do.
In reality, it hurts no one but the doer.
- You are confident of yourself.
- Others are not confident of yourself.
- You start doubting yourself.
- Others magnify that.
- You step back, and after a lot of hard work, get self confidence back.
And then you realise, the best way to deal with self doubt is to create your confidence in isolation without worrying about what others think of you.
And that’s awesome 🙂
When will I have my own business?
When will I get to a place of not worrying about money?
Will someone ever believe in me?
Some questions do not have immediate answers.
But whenever I am confused about long-term choices in life, here is something that always helps me:
- Sitting and meditating
- Going for a nature walk
- Reading powerful stuff
- Becoming absolutely quiet
This is not a step-by-step process, rather a buffet – you can pick whatever you like, as per your taste and preference. And that’s beautiful 🙂
When you see someone who keeps their emotions to themselves, and you see them struggling in life, don’t point that out to them.
Rather, be there for them even when they don’t ask it.
This one thing would make them feel seen. And that is all they need.
That weird thing happened years ago.
Someone played with your heart 12 years ago.
Someone threw you out of their life 11 years ago.
Someone told you that you were not needed, 10 years ago.
Learn the lessons, forget the memory.
Allow yourself to heal, but do not allow that person again.
Be at peace and ease with past, but do not allow it to add to the present its cast.
Of course it is!
So are other 364 days as well.
Provided you don’t lose enthusiasm over yourself like the rest of the world does.
Every day is a day to form new habits, create a new system, and make yourself proud.
Only if we choose to do it.
Last few days were very hard.
I won’t say “because of…”
I’d rather say because I didn’t invest much on myself. Slept by 10 instead of 9:30 on a lot of days, killed some time on Instagram, and the worst of all, on the opinions of others.
Will change that a lot in 2022. Already started!
2022, here we come :))
Don’t get inspired by people’s success on social media, their blue tick, the content they create, how much money they make, what all they have done, etc.
Rather, get inspired by their courage, the vibes they give, the joy you feel being around them, and most importantly, how much do you get to execute from them to their lives.
Worshipping people is easy.
Because it puts blinders on our wisdom and makes us pure devotees.
Getting inspired by their hard work is tough.
Because now you will have to put in that hard work as well.
Trying to explain a difficult thing?
Be as simple as possible.
Need a favour?
Be clear, instead of beating about the bush.
Want to say no?
Be clear, politely – instead of staying under the kimono.
Can’t show up to work?
Want to say no?
When we aren’t clear, we disrespect the trust someone else places in us. Why would you want to do that?
