A very Happy New Year people! May all of you have a prosperous year ahead. May you find your self and get to know so many new amazing things. May you cross off more points from your bucket list. May each day see you better than the day before and may you have memorable experiences that you cherish and even learn from.
For past some time I have been completely stressed out. There is so much to deal with. Family,work is just a part of it. I grew tired of worrying non-stop. On top of that I have shifted and the pain of leaving old friends and the fear of making new is somewhere in the back of my mind constantly.
Till I reached a point where I couldn’t take it anymore. My brain fried and I stopped thinking.
No, it is not a bad thing. In fact, I feel happy. Now I have learnt to think only about the present. I have regained my carefree attitude to a certain extent. I have stopped worrying about what’s going to happen. I am learning how to only logically analyse the problem right in front of me and deal with it. I won’t say I am stress free. But I am learning to deal with it. I am trying not to be impulsive. It is difficult but I am trying. Of course there are something’s which are not in my hands and I can’t stop thinking about. But I am learning to deal with those to. I am going to put a stop to ” pulling my hair worry”.
Plus I recently came across this video in TED where they explained about how accepting stress as a learning mechanism helps us increase our longevity. Dealing with stress in a positive way is very important. We need to learn from it and not fall under it’s brunt. If I can try to do it then so can you.
Loneliness…the word it self makes one feel sad and depressed. Today I wake you to a beautiful day and I realize that nobody’s lonely. There is an ocean full of people out there and sometimes when you live alone you may feel more lost. One day you are feeling lost in that huge crowd when suddenly you are hugged from behind and that dark cloud passes away as you turn around and see the bright smiles and excitement and the true happiness on your friend’s face as they look at you. You are never alone. You may be passing through a difficult situation and you find there is nobody there to help or guide or support you. First sit back and think. Did you convey your suffering to anyone? Most of us feel that any person close to must know when we are sad but you should understand that they are not mind readers, they are also humans like us and you need to put your pride or shyness behind and talk to people.
Learn to talk and share 🙂
Some time ago I had some amazing news that I wanted to share with my closest family and friends, but when I called them nobody responded, they didn’t have time to even listen to my news. Some had a job to go to, some babies to take care of and whole lot of other excuses. One of the best days in my life was spent feeling lonely and crying instead of celebrating. Then night falls and I start getting calls from all of them, one by one, and the way they sounded so happy I felt my heart would burst. The one’s I thought had ditched my were the one’s who truly were happy for me. I was even wished by people from unexpected sources.
When you feel lonely just remember your blessings- the best times in your life and always know that there is always some one to look out for you. Don’t expect people to always come over to you. Learn to talk to people on your own accord and even after reading this you feel you don’t have anyone then Hey! go out there and make new friends! There are always people who have the same mindset and maybe are waiting to be found just like you. 🙂
