It's Okay to Say "No" ๐Ÿ™Œ


Such a small word and yet many people struggle for years saying it! 

Isn't it?

Even I can't say "No"!

Just yesterday, it seemed an ardous task to just say "No" to something I didn't like๐Ÿฅบ

Why? Because of its association with being selfish, rude

Half of the troubles of this life can be traced to saying yes too quickly and not saying no soon enough~Josh Billings

Isn't it so true?

I find it almost unbearable to say no, no matter how busy I am, and how much I do not want to do a task

I used to say yes all the time because the thought of saying no crippled me

What I never realised was I didn't owe anybody anything๐Ÿ™Œ


I can never control anybody’s opinion about me

Life flows, it moves and will it progress whether I say no or not✨

I can make a choice to go through it hurriedly or go through it mindfully

The key is learning to balance kindness and courteousness without sacrificing our own sense of self-worth✨

We often think about what we should do, what people want us to do or the expectations others might have of us but these thoughts can overwhelm us, debilitate us, and leave us feeling conflicted, restricted, or full of angst✨

People are always going to have requests Sometimes we'll be able to help;sometimes we'll not

We're still a good person regardless❤️

If we put everyone else’s needs ahead of our own, we'll become mentally and physically exhausted

It is our life

We are our biggest advocate๐Ÿ’ฏ

It's okay to say no!
& Sometimes one needs to ๐Ÿ™Œ

Our world will not fall apart because of it๐Ÿ™Œ

It's absolutely okay to say "No" 
And sometimes one needs to๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’ฏ

The chilly winds on my face, the little mist in the air, red nose, cold hands, mom screaming take care oh, with December, the year comes to an end,  some tears some smiles, and i made one new friend.  The end of this year full of ambiguities is near, bringing the time to reflect what we reared in the whole long year, other than lament and fear. A time to reflect which do's and don'ts crossed our lines & which relations grew fine. What was learnt and what was taught. What was new and what felt like draught,  What engrossed within our hearts & what disappeared fast. What made us grateful & kind, What was love when cherished from distance, What was mirth when tried to express, What was gained and what was lost.  Was all a part of the year just going to pass. Falling again and again with consistency, Then bringing my life into existence, I learned that this world is here to tear you, Are you enough strong to create your own space, Only then, you can embrace,

Do Your Best For People, Not Your Worst✨

We often look at the speck of sawdust in other’s eyes, don't we? But do we really pay attention to the plank in your own eye? Well, not really! Why is it that as humans we often look for flaws in others? We often make quick judgements about someone's behaviour, & It's only later we experience an internal shake when we find out the real story Well, Everyone is fighting some kind of a battle and frankly we don't even have a clue what most people we encounter on a daily basis are going through. Sometimes the inner battles people fight, they just feel lost for a while, People come with all their taunts, they judge all the while, The seconds spent on judging others could be instead spent on loving them❤️ Why is it as humans that we have filled our lives with so much ‘stuff’ to keep us busy that we don’t have time to slow down and simply ask someone if they are ok? While we all go on personal journeys,we also must recognize that everyo

Stop Ruminating ๐Ÿ›‘

There's a strong connection between the way you think and the way you feel. And it goes both ways. The way you think affects your emotional state and your emotional state affects the way you think. When you're feeling sad, for example, you look at the world through a gloomy lens. You're more likely to dwell on the negative, engage in harsh self-criticism, and predict things are going to end poorly. On the flipside, your thoughts also influence how you feel. When you begin thinking about something gloomy--like a person who treated you poorly, you'll start to feel sad. The more you think about sad things, the worse you feel. And as your mood plummets, the more likely you are to think about sad things. It's a cycle that can be hard to break. You won't talk to people, maybe for few minutes, hours, or even a day or two. You will find it difficult to sleep at night, concentrate on work and would feel drained and sad for anything and everything. You have to
