Believed in Forever – Untwisted twist!

We expect life to be a continuous journey towards perfection when in fact life is full of hoops, jumps and randomness. Things don’t always go the way we want it to. Random events occur frequently in our lives and is in our best interest to become aware of how random life really is.

I stopped blaming other people for being the cause of my unhappiness.

It isn’t easy to stop and it sure requires a lot of honesty and courage to do so.
It is always easier to blame someone else to throw away some responsibility but, in order to grow, you have to accept the consequences of your acts.
 
You have to be determinate and perseverant to fix your flaws but, when you do succeed – you and only you are the source of your triumph – and at this moment, you can be infinitely proud of yourself.
 
By changing this habit, you will have the feeling that you can change everything in your life – as long as it is something that you can actually control.

Expecting. I quit it.

Expectations are nice to have. But some expectations are dangerous like cancer.

  • I stopped expecting people to be perfect.
  • I stopped expecting people to be nice to me if I’m nice to them.
  • I stopped expecting things to be easy.
  • I stopped expecting people to leave everything for me and be with me.
  • I stopped expecting life to be fair.

Living with guilt and regret.

Guilty

I stopped feeling guilty about the past.

Having guilt is like having a 100 pound weight on your back holding you down. You are not able to move. You feel like you are walking through mud up to your knees.

I am not even close to being perfect, so I have done things in the past that I am not proud of. For years I was filled with guilt and shame because of my decisions.

I didn’t make mistakes, I made conscious decisions even though they were the wrong decisions. Too many people misuse the word mistake to pass the blame to others and not take responsibility.

I am a big believer in personal development so I work constantly on becoming the best version of myself. I read and listen to books to improve my mindset regularly.

This transformed my whole life.

This way we can then learn how to prepare for these events and realize that eventually, maybe, hopefully; life will balance itself out again while learning a few things about yourself along the way.

Stranger

It’s a strange world, thanks to the people we meet!

Talking to strangers can make you happy.

Our very lives depend on the ethics of strangers, and most of us are always strangers to other people.

– Bill Moyers

Have we become strangers in these world of technology and gadgets? But don’t we get ample of time to be on-line and stay connected with the virtual world through internet? Does that mean we have no time for the real world?

When was the last time we observed ourselves? When was the last time you smiled at a stranger or received a smile in return? I am sure this is a simple question yet difficult one to answer as most of the time, we have our heads bow down, glued to our mobile screens.

I still remember when we were young, our parents would tell us ‘Don’t talk to strangers’! And that worked well for us. We were young, our minds were young, which means we were not old enough to be discerning. We were not able to decide if a stranger was good or bad. But as we grew, the situation changes. We are not able to comprehend what is good and bad.

The importance, rather the comfort of the human touch seems to vanishing day by day. People have, in fact, started to feel safe by not connecting with the real world. Instead, they feel safe and secure being away from all the unnecessary fuss and emotional distractions. But have we felt the need to talk to strangers? Haven’t we thought about the benefits we can get out of talking to strangers?

Anything is possible in life. A stranger you meet can become your lifeline with the passing years. In the same vein, the person most close to you can become a stranger in a matter of seconds. Life has become unpredictable. Surprisingly, you might meet someone again on the crossroad of life and you might again continue the beautiful journey of your life together. The never-ending road of life will take you towards your destination of happiness, and fill you up with all confidence and courage required to face any adversities and difficulties.

It’s time we changed our attitude towards strangers. Yes, we live in dangerous times, but not all strangers we meet are dangerous. We need to be suspicious, but we should also be trusting. The whole world is not our enemy.

Let’s start by changing ourselves. Each individual has the capability to connect with people, allowing us the human experiences which are enriching experiences. Right from the morning we get innumerable chances to meet and greet strangers. It could be a taxi driver, a sales person at a mall, fellow passengers at airports, lounges, railway stations and the bus stand. Interaction depends on people’s personalities. If you are an introvert, it might be difficult to talk to strangers. At the same time, if the other person is an extrovert, communications becomes quicker. Such communications are also a great way to socialise and to build networks. It is also interesting to see the world through the eyes of another person.

The world out there is for us to explore. So, try to see it through a different perspective. Talking to strangers and discussing various topics helps boost our confidence and makes us feel self-motivated. It also helps improve our communication skills. Yes, the world is full of strangers and that’s what makes it so interesting.
