15 Harsh lessons of life you love to ignore

Lost in the wilderness
And you find some way to survive And you find out you don’t have to be happy at all.. To be happy you’re alive.” Brian Yorkey

“Where there is life, there is hope.”
 Alyson Noel

Do you agree?

Life hurts a lot more than death.

‘LIFE’…the  four letter word similar to the another four letter word ‘LOVE’…. is a highly complicated stuff for decoding. 

You can’t escape the harsh truths of life and ups and downs happen alternatively.

No doubt all of us aim to lead a happy life…….

And the irony in life…

Sometimes you have to lose all you have to find out who you truly are.”
Roy T

Life is a beautiful lie

1. People care you only to the extent your services are required

2. Life is nothing but a 24 hrs drama full of emotions. The drama ends when you end your breathing.

3. Being loved is not the end of everything. And love business is temporary and expect zero outcomes.

4. Whether you are the poorest of poor or richest of the rich or in-between category, it won’t make any difference because you have to die your death and nobody can help you including God.

5. At any point in your life either you are manipulated or you undergo deception.

6. You are dispensable

7.Everyone has to leave each other. No matter how closely the person is integrated with you.

8. You are born alone and die alone. Don’t cry because there is no other alternate exit route.

9. They are your best buddies today and the can be your worst enemies tomorrow.

10. Watching porn kills your soul.

11. You die fast because of your disappointments which derive from your expectations!

12. Parents are said to be next to God. But examples are plenty where parents destroyed their children’s careers.

13. And you also come across children harming their parents.

14. Your right can be somebody’s wrong!

15. Don’t deny the fact that you are selfish and you pretend to be holy and are expert in having double standards.

Life is more than just chess.
Though king dies, life goes on.”
Toba Beta

“Rear View Mirror”

Are you stuck with your past ?

I know you are worried a lot because of the past events, and based on your experience with your past, you hesitate to take bold decisions. This is happening to you repeatedly because you remember the following famous quote.

“Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.”   Winston Churchill

Sadly this is not the case and if you want to lead the life you wish to have, you must take bold steps and ignore looking into your rear view mirror which reflects those miserable past events.

Otherwise, you become a victim of Rear-view mirror syndrome.

Rear-view mirror

What is ‘Rear-view’ mirror syndrome ?

“Most people suffer from the self-limiting dysfunction “rear-view mirror syndrome” driving through life with their subconscious mind constantly looking in their self-limiting rear-view mirror.

They filter every choice they make through the limitations of their past experiences.

Always remember that your potential is TRULY unlimited and that you are just as worthy, deserving, and capable of achieving everything you want as any other person on earth”.  Hal Elrod

Rear-view mirror

Any lessons ?

1.Don’t let your past control your future. The bad experiences you had are part of your life and no way should interfere with the present decisions.

2.Focus present to achieve confidence in reaching your goals.

3.Don’t put restrictions on what you wish to achieve in your life. Don’t be another mediocre person burdening Mother Earth. Look unto the future. Think of various possibilities.

4.Remember there are remedies for every problem. You only and you alone have to figure it out. It’s easy.Getting advice may or may not help.

5.Just refuse to look back.

Thank you. Namaste🙏🙏🙏

This post is in response to Ragtag Community’s. Daily prompt – Rear-view mirror.Thank you guys for the continued inspiration

‘Why not me God’ instead of ‘Why me God’ ?

All Gods

I asked God,”why are you taking me through troubled water” ? He replied ” because your enemies can’t swim”  unknown

Are you depressed ?

I know you.

Many times you felt depressed whenever you think of the things happening to you.

You are  also finding it difficult to come out of the mess you created.You think none of it is due to your fault.

You start wondering why these things happen to you only time and again !!

You are wondering whether there is any meaning to your life.

“Existence is a strange bargain.

Life owes us little; We owe it everything.

The only true happiness comes from squandering  ourselves for a purpose”    William Cowpe

Everyone has to face some problem or other

Describing somebody that ‘the fellow is born with a silver spoon’ is utter rubbish.

Everybody has to undergo suffering.

Whether the person suffers from cancer or just mild fever, or any other reason doesn’t matter.

Whether the person is rich or poor, doesn’t matter.

Good or bad doesn’t matter.

Whether the person is pious or unholy,doesn’t matter.

Whether the person is criminal or law-abiding doesn’t matter.

Whether the person is moral or immoral doesn’t matter.

Whether a newborn suffers or a 100+ old person suffers doesn’t matter.

I can go on and on…

The point I am trying to stress is, there is no escape from suffering once you are born

The only difference is, some suffer more and some suffer less.

Again I don’t have an answer.

“Life is pleasant. Death is peaceful. It’s the transition that’s troublesome.”   Isaac Asimov

When one suffers, the first question one puts invariable is “Oh God ! why me ?” as if one is pure (at heart on par with Almighty), and the rest of the population deserves to suffer.

Remember there are others in this world, whose suffering is more than yours.

Instead, why can’t one boldly say ” why not me ?”

By saying so, Are we not gaining confidence in ourselves to face the eventuality?

To be frank, why should one get an exemption from suffering in one’s life?

Is this not God’s way of telling us to be

  1. Brave,
  2. Develop courage,
  3. Search for solutions( inventions,science etc)
  4. Improve inner strength,
  5. Understand the meaning of life ( philosophy)
  6. Know the value of time.

So we are thankful to the Almighty for allowing us to survive and gain strength from suffering.

Take home message

When life puts you in tough situations,don’t say “why me “? Just say “Try me”    unknown

Thank you. Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

National stress awareness day

In these days of pandemic, one urgently needs some kind of self enhancing humor.

Social media is flooded with memes,jokes and GIFs to lower the level of anxiety.

“Love knows no borders, neither do people with coronavirus,”

Some say this is not the time for laughter.

By watching these Gifs,jokes or memes etc, don’t get angry and add more stress !!

Using art and humor is one of the ways to calm the tense mind.

What is stress ?

In a medical or biological context stress is a physical, mental, or emotional factor that causes bodily or mental tension. Stresses can be external (from the environment, psychological, or social situations) or internal (illness, or from a medical procedure). Stress can initiate the “fight or flight” response, a complex reaction of neurologic and endocrinologic systems. Source Medicinenet.com

And during these Corona Days ?

Of course plenty of material available on the web,how not to get stressed in times of pandemic.

Simple methods include

  • Daily exercises,healthy diet
  • Enjoying the unique opportunity given to us in the form of having ‘break’,which otherwise you can never dream of
  • Having good sleep,avoiding alcohol & other addictions
  • Being in constant touch with our near & dear
  • Realize that you are not alone to undergo anxiety these days
  • Accepting that ‘Life’ is full of uncertainties
  • Be kind to yourself
  • Learn to ‘Take it easy’ attitude
  • Realize that you can’t control everything
