A friend reached out for suggestions on how to do a difficult and time-taking task.
Here’s what I suggested:
- Go to sleep
- Read all of them in the morning, and no social media till you do this
- Then make a summary (aka do the task).
The most complex things are the simplest things demystified.
I’m not talking about a life tragedy.
I’m talking about the tiny slippages in habits.
Or the tiny things someone said.
Or they didn’t say.
Keep reading, and this too shall pass!
Maa Papa were about to go for a dinner party tonight.
But they didn’t!
All my plans of working out in the living room, listening to my kind of stuff on full volume, or even peeking out of the balcony with no one to interrupt me.
Nvm, it’s their home. Most welcome 🙂
1. Going the extra mile always works.
2. Sometimes when you can’t, walking the minimum miles is also the right thing to do.
3. Forgiveness should come with forgetfulness. Otherwise, it isn’t forgiveness.
People behaving badly, it’s not about you.
They’re not responding, it’s not about you.
They are being rude, it’s not about you.
The world is already out there telling you all the bad things about you, at least you stand for yourself.
You are perfect, there is NOTHING wrong in you.
Say no to others. Kindly.
Say yes to yourself. More often.
When people bring others down, I don’t get angry on them.
I have pity on them.
How much pain they must be enduring, to get to a place of bringing others down.
It helps to bless them, instead of getting angry at them!
Hey friends, you are reading this on a screen right now.
However, if you spent less time on screen today as compared to other days, you’re independent.
Yesterday I wrote a thread on Twitter that went quite viral. It spoke about how I managed writing along with my job as a CA for some 5+ years.
However, there is also a part of my 20’s that didn’t get shared: how my nervous system got affected due to the wrong relationships I put myself into – in 2010 and 2016.
Even I didn’t realise it, however, yesterday when my therapist spoke of this residual anxiety, it all made so much sense.
All of a sudden my anxiety behaviours start making sense now. And this is where the love of writing helped me cope.
While it helped me a lot, a lot of behaviours that seem to pop up these days are still to be resolved.
What you see, has a lot of back story that you cannot see.
