A Thought on Friendships

Why do so many friendships break up even after years of being friends whereas new friends seem closer to you than family?

It has happened to all of us at one point of time or the other, Friends have been unresponsive or failed to come through, for no apparent reason. Sometimes it happens when you need them the most, Yet they choose to be silent.
I wonder why people do that. Is it because they do not know what to say? Or is it because of things going on in their own lives?
Whatever it is, I find it difficult to accept such behavior. May be it is because I would personally never do it and I judge everybody by the same high standards that I have set. May be these are what they call the “fair weather friends” — the ones who laugh with you when things are okay but choose to turn away the moment you have something sad. The good thing is that one knows who one’s true friends are, and one feels grateful to have such true friends. The bad thing is that it makes you feel like such a fool to have judged people so wrongly.

It’s a strange universe of fickle friendships.

We have come into an era where friends support you according to their needs. We are all aware that these relationships might not last forever and it’s probably for the best to have some friendships dissolve.
Always remind yourselves that it is not our fault when friends walk away. You cannot make someone stay in a friendship if they want to leave.

And today I can say with confidence that life is really too short to bother about the ones that left. What matters are the ones that are in your life, at this moment.

You can do nothing if people change.

All you can do is make new friendships, or hope like hell that your old rock-solid dependable ones, stay just so.

Think About It. .

Most of us have been raised to ‘be nice’ to others. We have ingrained it to such an extent that we know no other way. Even when someone puts us down, we say to ourselves ‘Maybe they didn’t mean it that way..’

Here’s the thing: If you felt bad about something that someone said, what is important is not how they meant it, it is how YOU felt about it. People make insulting remarks, out of envy. Sometimes they are hidden. They are not direct references.

Someday your friend tells you about how stylish you looked. Then in the very next breath, they tell you about how your shoes did not match with your dress. Actually it was your choice, and that was the way you liked it.

I don’t think anyone has the right to comment upon other people’s choices! How they dress is upto them. If you do not approve, you can look the other way.

Comments from close friends are one thing. But when someone you barely know, puts you down, it’s time to ‘not be nice’. Just walk away.

The Value of Life

Yesterday I was reading an article on some site that, 25 out of 100 people die while they’re asleep. Those who wake up each morning are the luckier ones to survive such a death.

This made me think, if we are so lucky to have this life, why don’t some people realize its value?
Don’t they realise seeing a beautiful sunrise each morning is a blessing. Being under this huge sky and making it through the day, is a blessing! There are blessings in every little thing that surround us, we are too consumed in this materialistic world of ours to stop and smell the roses.

Life is a gift given by god. It’s not something human can make. Thus, it doesn’t give us any right to end this life. We’re made to live it.

No one has a right to go against the laws of nature. Suicide is going against the laws. What could be so wrong that you’d want to leave this world? You’re still breathing, which means god still have something in store for you.. Something better. If god has given life, he’ll take it back too, but only when he thinks is the right time! Not when you want to.

This world is a crazy place, with billions of people living with us, we still feel lonely so often. Ever thought why is it so? Maybe because we’re too scared to step out of our shells. The ones that trap us, make us feel so alone that we may even think of ending the life! Those who commit suicide, think of only what has happened, not what WILL happen after they’re gone.
Decisions of life should never be taken solely on the basis of present. We all need to analyse the future results of what we do now.

Just remember what Eminem says, “Life is no Nintendo game.”😊

Follow Your Heart❤️

Every now and then I get moved by my own imaginations and sometimes they are the best part of my day. I am not into any sort of depression but yes I just don’t feel so good sometimes. I have no idea why… 🤔

Last night I was looking at the endless sky and all my world-ly problems looked so tiny in front of it. May be life is really not as complicated as it looks. May be its just a simple math problem but you are totally applying the wrong approach.
You have to be a little selfish and not care about the people around you for a while. You just have to follow your heart and wherever it takes you – that’s where you will find the happiness you were always looking for.

Even if your heart wants a ridiculously expensive dress which you will hardly wear, just take that. They were made to make you happy after all. Even if that means ordering an abnormally large sized dessert which you won’t ever be able to eat alone.

And even if it means disappointing a few people. You can’t possibly impress everyone about everything. You are bound to make a few mistakes. And I had rather follow my heart and made mistakes. I am young I am allowed to make a few stupid decisions and laugh about them later.😉

As Carrie Bradshaw (Sex and the City) once said “twenties are for mistakes and thirties are to pay for them.”

Hello December!

Hello Beautiful People!

Can you believe it’s December?

As fast as this year has gone, I have to admit I love it when it’s time for the Christmas season.

Just like yesterday 2017 started and now 2018 is so close, I really thank God for everyone in my life including you guys and trust me when I’m counting all my blessings that I received this year, I’ll be sure to count you twice because you all are the best! 😍😍.

I mean it wasn’t always smooth, I had my fair share of stress,worries and all but you know what they say ‘your darkest hour comes before your dawn’ and so I knew God got me and that kept me going.

Some people might be feeling downcast because they feel 2017 came and now it’s gradually fading away without anything really changing.. Well, I have good news for you, a lot of things can still happen within 30 days, and so all you have to do is just relax, stay positive and believe in yourself!

Making Space!

Repeatedly I kept receiving this message on my phone: ‘Your device is low on space. Need to clear minimum……’. Busy in some work or the other, I continued to ignore the message.

As a result, the phone started slowing down. Various minor problems kept cropping up. So I had no other option but to take notice of it and check the contents.

So many unnecessary things were there. Some pics / videos that I had liked but had not time to view again; some I didn’t even know were there in my phone.

While clearing this junk, I found some similarity..

Doesn’t this apply to our mind, too? We gather so many things and continue to live with this baggage. Not all of these things are good or positive. But still we keep carrying this burden and it slows us down in every aspect. Our mind is so full with this clutter that new and better things cannot enter due to lack of space.

So if we don’t get rid of the unnecessary old things (like grudges, hurts, anger…) how can fresh, nice feelings find a place there?

Preaching is always lot easier than putting it into practice. Agreed. But at least realizing the need to discard the unwanted things and need to create space can be a first step.

Motherhood, God’s Blessing!

When I hold my child, I know there are so many people who would love to be in my shoes. And I realise how truly blessed I am to be a mom.

Motherhood is so much more than those dirty diapers and exhaustion from a lack of sleep. Motherhood is the job – yes, the privilege – of shaping little hearts and minds. And even beyond that, motherhood is one of God’s greatest blessings.

My baby took me to the next level of life happiness. He has given me a closeness in my life I’ve never had before. I love the responsibility I have for this new life – it’s up to me and his dad, how to love him. It’s an unconditional love. I don’t need any reward. The love that has since filled my heart, the fullness that I experience in my life, is indescribable.

Motherhood is a blessing – no matter what the circumstances you currently face.

Somebody said it takes about six weeks to get back to normal after you’ve had a baby

That somebody doesn’t know that once you’re a mother, “Normal”, is history.
