It creates a parallel world, mostly with scarier demons. It creates fantasy where you win after every loss. It creates problems which doesn't exist in your reality. It creates solutions for problems which is long gone. It distracts focus from goals and dreams. It takes every mistakes in consideration. It elevates guilt, it doubt rewards. It confuse decisions, it influence mood. Let's not overthink to strengthen problem, let's think over resolving them.
It's our choice to choose the artificial lights over earthen lamps for the festival of Diwali But its about their survival this time This 'Deepa'wali, its too important for us to support the lower segment of economy ladder, they've spent their savings, they've walked miles to meet ends, they've got mental, physical and economical setbacks this year with less or no hopes from tomorrow. Let's be socially responsible and help at least one such seller and let's make it a festival for them too.
Mental health is talk of the town nowadays. People are talking about and taking mental health seriously in developing countries too.
But majorly it's still a taboo for majority. It is considered as a Phase which will pass, or a state of mind which is temporary, or a self created situation which could be rubbished.
People need to treat physical as well as mental health with same importance. With stress levels at all time high even for kids, it is really necessary to look after your closed ones, to reach out to friends and colleagues when you see a drastic change in their behavior. It could take time, they would be reluctant to any help offered, but be assured that you could be their silver lining amongst the dark clouds. And if you're suffering from the same, be open to discuss it with people you know, consult a psychologist, or try to talk anonymously to people through digital platform. Don't shy, don't make it synonymous to being mad, it is like a disease with cure. Just remember,
No matter how bad things are, they could always get worse. No matter how bad things are, they will eventually get better No matter how good things are, it will not last forever No matter how good things are, it will take you to best
//Good bye to the past, For tomorrow awaits a better you!//
What 2020 taught me:-
☆Everyone is temporary. Everyone is just a passenger in your life, while you are the conductor of your train. We all meet someone. Sometimes they become the reason, you compose your ethereal poetries. Unless they reach their station, and get off. And then, all we are left with is, their luggage of memories, left by them on purpose. We sigh. We break. We heal. Yet our train moves on, nothing changes around us. But we pretend to have changed our tracks. We need to accept they weren’t our destiny, we still have someone waiting for us, on their station. Who would then become the driver of our moving train :)
☆ Sometimes, its good to remain silent, for not everyone is worth your explanations. Let them be them. For you are you. And so, silence and patience is must.
☆Stop expecting from everyone. People might come, and leave. It wouldn’t make a difference for them, but it might be impactful for you. Don’t let it. Don’t let your own self be disappointed from someone who doesn’t care about what and how you think and feel. Consider them as another artist, who gave a stroke of hue in the canvas of your life and left to complete someone else’s. But the rest is still left to be completed with your brush. With colours of achievements, an endless sky of optimism and a luminous rainbow of poesies!
☆Make someone feel special. Sometimes, we might not know but praising someone in the simplest way can make them feel good. Be an ear for them. Be someone’s ray of hope, in the world of hypocrites.
☆Its fine to cry. Not every time you would have someone who’d understand you. Not every time words would lessen your pain. All that what burdens your heart, cannot be healed through silent screams, or midnight rants. Sometimes making your eyes wet, can be a relief too.
☆Don’t let your happiness be concealed by someone else’s clouds of judgement. People are insensitive. Everyone knows how to speak. Speak the harshest. But no word, taught them to prove they do have a heart. Its fine, let them be them, for you are you.
☆“Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times”. Dumbledore, indeed was a wise wizard. Not everytime, you’d get a reason to smile. Not everytime you’d get a reason to be happy. The world there sits in solitude, to sigh for the smallest of things. Someone still breathes in regret. But be the one to smile. For, the world needs to be positive.
☆Reality and virtuality can never be one. They are destined to be parallel. All that you scroll through screens would be within these screens.
☆Accept and embrace loneliness. For its not loneliness. Its the solace of yourself, amidst the chaos of world.
