To One Year of Writing! -Sensitivity..

Sensitivity is a human trait. Every human being on this Earth is responsive to their environment and that includes all the people in our lives. As sensitives, we may perceive others as insensitive or less conscientious. I can’t count the times I’ve thought to myself, ‘Why in the world would someone say or do that?’
I’ve been intuitively and spiritually tuned-in since early childhood and I was fortunate to have a loving, supportive family. Yet, when I ventured out into the big, wide world, I often felt misunderstood and misperceived. I'm often enmeshed in other people’s energy, to the extent that I would go to any level to love them, care for them, and then be hurt myself thinking about why do people not react the same way, or why do people comment on me.

Certainly, there are a small number of people who deliberately act in ways that hurt others. However, I’ve come to recognize most people are simply unconscious about the effect of their words or actions. We all do have a shadow side. But does that mean one can say anything and everything that comes to one's mind?  no one deserve abuse of any kind. How much can one be tolerant towards harassment, bullying, psychological manipulation, gaslighting or emotional neglect? 

Let’s talk about when someone makes an off-hand remark and it hits you right in the heart, right at your core. For most of my life, I was very emotionally reactive. I would either vent all that's inside me or be quiet no matter what. It’s taking time, mindfulness and lots of practice to remind myself to pause, sit with my strong emotions and feel them fully before deciding what to say or do. Somehow, I've built such strong walls around my heart. 

What do you think? 
Is it good to build strong walls around one's heart?
Is it fine to become a more quiet person, thinking that you don't matter in this world?

Hope grins on the doorway of 2022♥️

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 🛑

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
