Lost..

When will, ” I am not feeling okay in my mind.” will be considered as a legitimate excuse to take a leave? I am emotionally weighing down today because I don’t seem to be matching the pace of work at my university. I am feeling a little crushed under the weight of all the work I need to get done. Sometimes the professors at my university are not very considerate and I’m feeling a little afraid about their criticism on my work. What if it is not good enough? What if I don’t have it in me to make it good enough? 

Today, I’m not even sure if I’m on the right path. I have one more semester to go before I graduate. I don’t want to feel so dejected at the final step of completing my degree. But, at the same time, I am not able to do the assigned work due to my fear of failure and harsh criticism. I wish my professors understand as to what to expect from their students rather than harshly judging us.

Hey guys, I had chanced upon some of the writings by Erin Van Vuren some time ago and had instantly felt electricity coursing through my veins upon reading her quotes. After running a few google searches I landed upon her Tumblr page and Pinterest; I am thankful that discovered her writings. They’re so fierce, honest and tender. Now,  it is safe for me to say that I’m obsessed with her! I’m certain you will fathom my madness after you read her literature for yourself ๐ŸŽ†๐ŸŽ† 

Pure magic, aren’t they? ๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ˜ป 


Thank you for reading.  ๐Ÿ‘ฑ๐Ÿ‘ฑ

Are we evolved ?

I lost my young auntie yesterday. It made me realize how fragile and unpredictable life is. We are only puppets at the hands of destiny. We can’t stop a person from going no matter how hard we try and no matter how much the medicine field advances. I feel so powerless and helpless. Attachments always hurt so much. 

The road is tough, why can’t we all be nice to each other?  Everyone – every single person born on the face of the earth suffers. How much more evolution do we need to understand that kindness is as important as breathing?  We hurt each other even though we know how much it tears a person apart. We plot revenge, lovers cheat and parents abandon their children,  war kills families, mental health problems are frighteningly increasing and yet we are here still doing all those things. 

Is this kind of civilization worth anything? Until we understand that we all need to stick for each other despite religion, race and financial conditions all the knowledge in the world would be worthless. 

| Let us pledge to be more empathetic as a community. Let us pledge to put our education to some good use. Let us unite in our struggle. Let our suffering bind us till death. Finally, let us help another and be helped in return. We don’t need pity. We need empathy |

Facebook Free.ย 

โ€‹Facebook: A place to connect with old and new pals, helps users in  keeping up with their friends along with a couple of relatives and sharing bits of personal life as well.

Unfortunately, I am not keen anymore in doing any of the following. I had created my account in 2011 when I was in high school, naturally like any average teenage girl I was Lowkey obsessed with the application. I was charmed with all the friend requests  – especially from potential crushes (LOL!). I wanted to  upload a really cute profile picture with a witty caption to impress God knows who – maybe my fellow Facebookers, who actually don’t give a damn (at least not 30 seconds after viewing anybody’s picture). And, I don’t reckon I need to keep up with my friends in terms of where and when they’re checking in and checking out every hour. I mean, I know where my actual friends are and what they’re doing so basically that feature became pretty pointless to me because through Facebook I was keeping up with stranger’s life as well which was an… ridiculous. I didn’t even know them and I couldn’t for the life of me think of how we ended up being the so called ‘friends’. 
Facebook basically gives you access to anybody’s life – at least to some extent you can know how the other person is doing by looking at their profile. So, it is nearly impossible to not know how your ex boyfriend or the mean ex friend is managing. I recognize, self control is important to not browse through people’s profile, but Facebook makes it really easy to access anybody’s profile that it becomes hard to resist. It is really a very powerful trigger of anxiety, it literally beckons you to be on your toes to find out stuff you absolutely have no need to know. Sometimes, not knowing is fantastic. 
I was actually spending a good deal of time on Facebook which means I was spending a lot of my precious time in other people’s lives. It almost became suffocating watching how people can forge a perfect life just to appear cooler. I didn’t want to be a part of that community any longer. I finally had enough of it. 
That’s why, I made a decision to delete my Facebook account for good. Of course Facebook isn’t letting me go easily because it keeps reminding me that I can retrieve my account in 14 days. Only, I’ve resolved to delete all kinds of social media except Twitter and Snapchat – I don’t use them much and don’t spend as much time on them as I did with Facebook. 
I am excited to look forward to a life where I’m not bound by Facebook or Instagram. ๐Ÿ˜

Have you made any changes in the patterns of using social media for better? Have you stopped using these platforms?  How has it benefitted you ? I’d love to know. ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

Comfortable silenceย 

As a person who battles anxiety, I can vouch for the fact – having comfortable silence in a relationship (friendship as well) Is golden for us. Sometimes, I talk a lot just to fill the gaps – worried if my company is causing boredom, worried that I’m not talking enough. So, if someone comes along the way who makes me feel comfortable even though I don’t say much – that equals to me being at ease, me not being supremely anxious and that’s very precious! 

This post is a dedication to people who have anxious friends and partners. Having comfortable silence will probably be the best gift you can give to them. Letting them know that there is no need for them to always be there on their toes to entertain others to feel loved and important. ๐ŸŒน
