Intense need of a blog

I’m going through a lot of emotions right now, so best to document them here:

  1. If a friend takes a serious revenge on a friend’s prank, it is time to reconsider that friendship.
  2. The best way to avoid gossip is to avoid gossip.
  3. It takes just one conversation to drain your energy for the entire day. It takes spending time nurturing yourself to be away from that conversation.
  4. If you do not deal with what’s troubling you, you will figure out a way to blurt it out. Deal with your mess.
  5. Forgive, without being asked for. Because you need peace in your own life.

5 truths of life you didn’t know

  1. Life is beyond the thing called email and notifications.
  2. You will be admired for your honesty. However, before that, you would be rebuked.
  3. To not believe what most of the world beliefs, is the biggest level of chill.
  4. You create your life by what you do. So platitude.
  5. It’s okay to say no even in the most joyful work of your life.

Less known reasons why you are suffering

  1. You want people to love you on posting your insta photos, and yet you do not want to understand people at the root, for who they are.
  2. You find solace in more meetings and less solo execution.
  3. You think therapy without taking responsibility of your life will heal you.
  4. You think you can be your raw, unpolished self and yet have all the love in the world.
  5. You want to have incremental money every month, and that in itself, is a trap.
  6. You want people to love your insta stories, while secretly hating the people whose approval you crave for.
  7. You know you are not okay, and all your efforts are directed towards showing that you are okay, instead of healing the un-okay part of you.

Notes to self

Hey Nishtha,

a. Slowly and gradually, you will overcome the bad habits by creating good ones. Patience is power.

b. Your validation lies in your ability to do what is right.
Everything else, is people’s fickling moods.

c. You are the creator of time.
Why are you waiting for time to teach you the lessons?

d. Most importantly, the world just opens up for the human being who is ever flowing and giving.
Stop needing love from others and take it from God and give it to others. You will be fulfilled like never before!

The cool kids we hate

There is certainly ONE cool kid around you.
The one wearing a high attitude.
The one whose WhatsApp messages everyone responds to.

Here’s the truth about those cool kids:

  • They are suffering a lot inside
  • So they use that coolness to mask it
  • And not treat others well
  • And get to feel good about themselves
  • And the cycle continues

Here’s what you should bear in mind, whenever you come across these cool kids in whose company you don’t feel welcome:

  • Respect your own journey
  • Move on
  • Bless them

The ones who make others suffer, are the ones who are suffering hugely inside.

A random moment of joy

Yesterday I was feeling typically heavy after my therapy session, which ended at 4 pm.

I went out of my room, and sat in the balcony with my Mom and 3 year old nephew.

We were talking random stuff. And having fun, because – kid ๐Ÿ™‚

And then, he randomly went to the kitchen, brought a plate and a spoon, and started banging them against each other.

Nishu Masi, dance!

Somehow, I got up and started dancing. And doing the cartwheel. He stopped banging. I stopped dancing. He started banging. I started dancing.

Lasted for 5 minutes. But something I will remember forever.

No lesson to derive from. All good. Just life. And moments worth remembering.
