How often do you hear complaints from your friends about their partners? If not complaints, don’t they come up to you to unload their heavy hearts?
Honestly, I had always been this complaint box, where people come up to and dump their relationship’s pain. Yesterday, while commuting in public-transit, I came across a commuter who continuously blabbered about his broken love life.
Learning from others’ pain, I‘ve realized that we are making our relationships toxic in the quest to acquire and experience everything fast.
Whether you’re in a relationship or not, you can distinguish a healthy relationship from a toxic…
You don’t have to be a psychological expert in reading people’s behavior. We all have that inner power to discern that can tell us a lot about people’s personalities.
If not, we can always develop that skill.
As a child, I was always intrigued by people’s dual-faced behavior. Sometimes their actions and words did not match. I didn’t get it.
Though humans had developed a science of communicating thoughts, expressions, and feelings through speech, they often used body language to display their aversions, love, liking, hate, etc. And I wanted to learn that subtle language.
An American novelist Carol Plum-Ucci…
“Believe in yourself, and the rest will fall into place. Have faith in your own abilities, work hard, and there is nothing you cannot accomplish.” — Brad Henry.
This quote about self-belief is one of the most accurate ones that describe my life.
I didn’t excel in my engineering field, though I do hold a Master’s degree. I didn’t start my own business, though I once thought I would.
I never had the discipline to stick with my habits. I’ve been an introvert since childhood, so I had a hard time making friends. …
I don’t write about “writing advice.” This story is also not about that. I think writers don't need any advice. Every writer learns from his/her own experience.
What we need as writers is some acceptance or criticism to introspect our growth. However, harsh criticism prevents us from trying new topics, or excessive acceptance makes us comfortable in our skin.
And that’s toxic for the writer’s growth. I realized this fact very soon when I started my writing journey. The readers got bored more quickly than changing a four-month-old baby’s diaper. …
Tuesday it is!
It’s time to whisper some spiritual secrets.
Today, I am going to tear a page of my life and share it with you.
My grandfather was a great Yogi. He used to follow all the spiritual principles and rules in his life. Because of his unique way of living life, I never saw him as my grandfather. He was more like a saint.
Don’t jump to conclusions.
He didn’t renounce us all like a saint. I meant that his virtues, aspirations, qualities, perceptions, and way of looking at life differed from the rest of us. He lived…
The roads were empty,
But my heart was full.
With zeal and passion,
I walked through the woods.
The restless winds of the world,
Began to scare me.
The fog of material possessions,
Blinded my vision.
I could no longer see,
And my thinking was clogged.
Wherever I went,
I bought failures and sorrows,
by selling away my peace and calm.
I saw myself painted with pain,
Overlapping the colors of vain.
Days and nights were vanishing in a flash,
And the seasons were rolling,
Without any meaningful reasons.
But I was still me as water in the dew, With…
Let’s meet again.
I promise it’ll be our last.
After that, I won’t ever call you,
Or even recall our memories.
Let’s not prepare for our last meeting,
Please come undone,
With messy thoughts and wild feelings.
It’ll be our last gift to each other.
I know that words won’t suffice,
So let’s just soak each other’s feelings,
And stare at one another,
And love through the eyes — a final time.
Whatever you may have
Good or bad,
Small or big,
I’ll embrace it with dignity.
I’ll respect our space.
I know things didn’t work. Maybe it wasn’t our…
This story is the next chapter in the Chakra Series.
In the last part, we talked about the
But let’s recap the last part quickly.
“Chakra” is a Sanskrit word for wheel. They represent a series of energy centers (known as prana in Sanskrit) within the body.
According to spirituality, everyone possesses a subtle body overlapping the physical one. It’s also called the “astral body” or the “metaphysical body.” All the chakras reside there. …
Thought governs our life. What we think, we feel, and we do. Thoughts are inevitable, and so is the thinking. Our emotional strength depends upon the quality of our thoughts.
Thinking negatively 24/7 invites stress, anxiety, and mental distress. As a result, our minds become weak and vulnerable to any external stimuli. Even a little external change creates a cyclone of turmoil internally.
“We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think.” ~ Swami Vivekananda
Psychologists have discovered that humans have more than 6000 thoughts in a day. So, we can’t stop thinking, no…
After spending a lot of time writing and editing your stories a zillion times, you finally hit the icon - “Add to publication.”
Red-cheeked, you blush mentally, feeling that the draft is the perfect one. You feel ecstatic. Brimming with exuberance and zeal, you pat yourselves, “I know it, this is a superb story; flawless and impeccable. My best story to date”.
You overflow with confidence that you’ve minimized all the possible sources of errors. You sleep like a baby. Carefree and stress-free.
But the next day (or after some weeks), the bomb drops!
You get a private message from…
