Don't Over Apologize🙌

"I'm Sorry"

How powerful these words are, isn't it?

They release us from the guilt of having wronged someone & restores a sense of trust

But have you ever noticed how often you say sorry?

Do you over apologize at times?

Just like chocolates, too much "Sorry" is bad! 

The sorry''s we sprinkle through our days hurt us more than anything else

They make us appear smaller and more timid than we really are,


They can undercut our confidence,

Our self esteem,

Our self worth

& I'm not saying people who over apologize are inherently bad people

They are just over sensitive & in most cases overthinkers who fear being judged & not accepted

Pyschologists have noticed that Over apologising stems from being too hard on ourselves & beating ourselves up for things rather than realising that everyone makes mistakes

It's a human tendency to make mistakes

& That's absolutely fine

Even Good hearts can sometimes choose wrong ways & it doesn't make them less Good

We'll be a good person regardless

But we still over apologize just because not to make the other person feel even a bit offended

We are very sensitive about harming others

But we fail to realise Nobody owes us anything, and we owe nothing to anyone.

We should value ourselves more than anything else❤️

What is your say?

Be true to who you are and don’t worry about what other people think. Over apologizing or saying I’m sorry when it’s not necessary reduces self-esteem over time. 

Save “I’m sorry” for when you actually make a mistake🙌.

Do you over apologize?.

Over-apologizing dilutes your apologies when they're really needed. And over-apologizing can make you look less confident. It can seem as though you're sorry for everything - for your actions and feelings, for taking up space, for your mere existence.

These types of inappropriate apologies are roundabout ways of criticizing ourselves because we're essentially saying, "I'm wrong" or "I'm to blame" all the time. This doesn't reflect self-confidence or self-worth

So stop over apologizing 🙌❤️

Granny's Patchwork of Love❤️

"Your Grandmother would've been proud of you, if she were here today" This is something I often hear from my family and relatives. She passed away when I was in Grade 8 and I miss her more as I grow older because now I understand what values she imbibed in me  My Grandma was a Social Science teacher and a Principal in a Government School, and my source of inspiration & guidance. She was an angel in disguise who taught me how to care. She was a spiritual person who believed in God and treated everyone with love and respect.  She always said "You never know when you are interacting with an angel, so be kind and generous always".  Since she passed, all I have is her fond memories, her valuable lessons & our laughs and giggles.  One particular thing she asked me to take as an advice as an oxigen canister in this fast spreading virus borne world.  That was -"Don’t ever let your ice cream melt while you’re counting someone else’s sprinkles.” 

History isn't just about Past🤝

"To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child, For what is the worth of human life, unless it is woven into the life of our ancestors by the records of History." - Marcus Tullius Cicero I'm often asked - What is the use or relevance of studying history? Why on earth does it matter What happened long time ago? The answer is that history is inescapable. It studies the past and legacies of past in present. Far from being a dead subject, it conmects things through time and encourages its students to take a long view of such connections.   Understanding the linkage between the past and present is absolutely basic for a good understanding of the condition of being human. That, in a nutshell, is why history matters. It is not just ‘useful’, it is essential. The broad span of human experience, viewed both in depth and longitudinally over time, is the subject of history as a field of study. History enables us to contemplate the e

An Orphan's Paradise ❤️

What is paradise?' Teacher asked. "Home,' the orphan in class replied. The reply hit the teacher hard, being a woman who couldn't conceive, it was a blessing in disguise for her💛 She adopted the child clearing all the formalities & said to the child, "Let me hold the door for you.I may have never walked in your shoes, but I can see your soles are worn, your strength is torn under the weight of a story I have never lived before. Let me hold the door for you.  After all you've walked through, It's the least I can do." ❤️ After the clouds of gloom hurled over the child's mind and the thunderous tears ripped his soul apart;  She came as a rainbow in his unkempt life and her colours healed his wounded heart❤️✨
