5 steps to recover from your worst goodbyes!

in What's Viral by

Goodbyes are the hardest when you’ve been having exceptionally good time. But even harder is getting used to eventual situation. When flashes of past keep haunting your present. When all you want is to abandon today for a glimpse of yesterday.

Coping up is not as easy as it sounds but it isn’t impossible either. First and foremost accept. Accept your present state of affairs as is. It is what you have to deal with so why not deal it with your own satisfaction.

Second thing to do is to distract yourself from harsh reality. Think about what’s next rather than reliving painful memories. Surrender the thoughts as soon as you find yourself inching towards them and figure out your future.

Third, Routine. Prioritize your routine as to ways which benefit you the most now that you have abundance of times at hand. Check your schedule and add the activities that you always wanted to do but didn’t have time for. Watch those movies, read that book, play that sport, grab those habits which you missed before.

Fourth, try to keep yourself happy. Smile when free to induce feeling of contentment​. Look for the silver lining in worst of events. Engage in activities which provide you a sense of pleasure.

And last, fifth, Excel at task or work which you do. Put your energies in achieving success at your workplace. Make most of opportunities. Do your best to seek fruitful results. Your efforts won’t go in vain and you’ll realize that maybe ‘that goodbye’ did you good.

Once you’re done with these 5 steps, I’d like to congratulate you as you have officially moved on from your hard goodbye. Wasn’t that difficult, was it?

 

Victim to Social Media Depression?

in What's Viral by

Social Media is an integral part of our lives in current times. The young generation relies a bit too much on internet for homework, establishment of connections, acquiring answer to questions they cannot ask anyone else and entertainment purposes as well. I remember I used to feel left out prior to joining social media. My parents wouldn’t understand the reason behind my persistent requests to join Facebook. Evidently, all the conversations consisted of were ‘that new thing posted yesterday’. References of them made me feel in some ways foolishly ignorant. Now, that I’m a regular user of few of social network websites and apps such as Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat, I’ve felt it makes no difference.

 

But one thing I’ve noticed is most of my friends follow the pages and posts that they can relate to, sad and depressing posts. People are too quick to victimize themselves and try to make the posts about themselves. It is bad for mental health. Are people trying to open  up about their inner feelings with others because they feel the same way? We have songs, articles, quotes describing exactly how we feel. And it is easier to associate sadness with them, the heavy feeling in our heart after all there are another of our sorts. But social media leaves us experiencing loneliness, isolation and leads us astray from reality. Why render happiness a captive to the number of likes and comments achieved on social websites?

Maybe we should just try to discuss our emotions with friends and family more often. The fear of rejection and not being liked is forcing our true selves to go into hiding. Let’s, for once, try and appreciate raw selves of each other. Don’t let social media leave you lonely and get back to using it for its pros.
