Cheers to everyone who loves Experimentation and Diversification!

Experimenting can sometimes be frustrating.  I love learning new stuff every single day. In fact, I relish the feeling of being clueless about a field of study and then trying to master it;) But when you’re surrounded by niche-oriented people who know what they’re doing and are specialists in their field, experimenting feels pointless. There have…

Varied Passions.

My varied interests haunt me sometimes. ‘Your child is multi-talented’ they said when I was a kid. . I used to be proud of every little achievement, enthusiastic about every little competition, hungry to possess knowledge and passionate about almost everything I did. . Childhood was so much easier. .Less expectations made it easy to…

Simple Emotion

Happiness is such a simple emotion. Yet us humans tend to complicate it.We Make it seem so unachievable, so unattainable.  The negativity around us lures us, making us only concentrate on it. We get so consumed by this unpleasant emotion that, happiness suddenly becomes a reminiscent memory. Self pity reduces us to our most pathetic selves. It…

An Invisible scar

Things for which my hands once trembled, no longer faze me. I no longer have meltdowns in the middle of the day. I no longer worry endlessly and cry myself to sleep.  My ears which once craved to be appreciated, to be accepted are now used to the sound of applause. Presence of people who…

But with time the harsh realizations that we can’t do anything to change our past, has not only made us accept our past with resignation, but also made us fearful about the way we spend our present, and…

Your own timeline.

Hey there! Before I start, I wanna ask one question to y’all. Have you felt hurt or jealous because your friends are ahead of you (AND I NEED HONEST ANSWERS!) ? If you honestly think, even a tiny bit “yes” then you’re at the right place. If you ever felt jealous of anyone, its because…

The phase will pass:))

The dark times, or the times when you feel entirely hopeless are THERE.Get away from anyone who thinks that there isn’t a whole time period when you feel upset. It can last for weeks, or might be for just a few hours. But that pathetic desperation to help yourself and get over whatever it is,…

Be vulnerable

Some people rarely let their guard down. Crying in front of people or being vulnerable is something they rarely do. But I think this is exactly what’s stopping them from being a happier soul. They just feel like they’re carrying a burden with them all the time. The reason? They don’t let people see their…
