Unstuck yourself!

I have seen a lot of people feeling stuck in their life at some or the other point. They have this feeling where they feel worthless, they are bored with life. Life feels like a routine. Nothing new, nothing exciting. They hate their life. They feel worthless. They feel as if there is nothing to look forward to!

These people wholeheartedly want their life to change. They wait for the change to come. They blame people around themselves for the situation. They cry for no reason and everything is a reason for crying!

Little do they realize that the change they are waiting for is never going to come! All they are doing right now is recycling their old thoughts, habits and beliefs. And they have recycled them enough times to be completely and absolutely bored by them, loathed by them.

What they really need to do is be the change!

I know this sounds very cliché. But let’s give it a thought. Unless you change something in your life, life will go on as is. If you are really bored with what you are doing, go find something new. Change your routine. Exercise. Do some sports. Pick up a new hobby.

Step out of your comfort zone! Do something that you have never done before. Add some new action to your day!

I agree, you might be scared of doing something new when you are so used to doing your safe and well-trusted routine. But it’s this routine that is really killing you, not the situation or the people around you!

All you have to do is just take a left turn where you always took a right. No one is judging you, but you yourself! Start small. Do one new thing at a time. Focus on your health. Meditate. Take a walk in nature. Dance. Focus on things that make you happy. Focus on positivity.

It is only then you will truly know that there are so many things to life than just the routine. And it is only then, you’ll experience life. After all, life is a million different experiences woven together for you to relish!

Stop Judging…. Yourself!

“Oh, it’s not really his fault”, “It’s ok buddy no worries” or “That’s alright. I completely understand why you did what you did”.

We all have said this to a lot of people. We all have forgiven other people for their mistakes, for the hurt that they have caused us. We always give other people a second chance, no matter how badly they screw up.

“Hey, you are strong enough to face this!”, “It wasn’t really your fault” or “Don’t beat yourself up so much.”

We always give such encouraging advice to others. We always try to boost their morale. We always try to make people see that they aren’t really as bad as they think they are!

But what happens to all these talks when it come to ourselves?

“Oh, I am not really that person!”, “How could I have ever done/said that?” or “I can never forgive myself for this!”

How many of us hold on to our own mistakes? How many of us still ponder on all the wrongs we think we have done? How many of us still beat ourselves every waking hour thinking we are no good?

Wake up! It’s time!

It’s time to stop beating ourselves up. It’s ok if in past we couldn’t meet the standards of who we think we are. It’s ok if we messed things us. Stop judging yourself.

Only God is perfect. And you are only Human! You are allowed to make mistakes. You are allowed to mess up things. This is how you learn!

The important thing is “what next?”. The important thing is to focus on what’s coming. Remember, the present-you is the result of what you did in the past. So the future-you will be what you do now!

So, stop running back to the mistakes and criticizing yourself. It’s time to take the corrective actions. To make the real difference.

Start by forgiving yourself, accepting yourself for who you are – this will make you feel so much light and remove all the guilt that you have been carrying around. It is the first step for changing yourself for the better. Own up your mistakes. Learn from them. Be proud of them.

Take care of your self. Take time out for things that makes you happy. Make yourself the priority. Learn to say no. Start talking to yourself, forgiving yourself and encouraging yourself like you do for others.

Put yourself first! It’s not mean. It’s not selfish. It’s called self-love. And it is the single most important thing you should really invest in. This is how you heal. And healing is necessary!

Remember, if judging others is offensive, then judging yourself is downright criminal!

Words are all I have

words text scrabble blocks

Words are all I have,
And words are all I can give;
May it be an expression,
Or be it a piece of advice;
To act or not to, is your decision.

The meaning of my words will change for each,
Based on your perspective and experience;
What I mean to say is not what
You end up understanding;
Yet, Words are all I can give.

My actions are my own,
My reasons for them are different.
You interpret them based on your understanding,
And draw your own conclusions;
Yet, only I will know the true intentions.

My life is my own to live,
Your opinion of it may or may not
Make a difference to my living,
Your judgment of who I am is not me,
Beware, I am not who you think I am!
