Empathy is hard to deal with!

in What's Viral by

It is not a necessity to revert to someone’s feelings in the same manner. But it is downright wicked thing to exploit human emotions. Why I say this is because this is what happens in current times and maybe not only in current times, but it happens all the time. Denying someone right of expression and playing with feelings is inhumane.

I’ve seen people suffer through and through. It is heartbreaking watching people being utilized. Are people ever going to realize their worth? If not then what are they even doing? Following someone’s footsteps, idolizing someone, living according to other people they consider wise and keeping others happy without taking care of themselves is really absurd.

Maybe a person does not have to like all the people or treat them nicely but atleast be civil enough to treat them as an equal. How long are people supposed to fight for themselves? How long do they have to wait to be regarded as what they wish to be? How long will they accept the way they are treated? Nobody answers these questions. And as one grows older and older it seems an intangible mess to get out of. Don’t we all look for someone to understand us?

Having an upper hand in any type of relationship does not help. The one being undermined submits to dominant one but bears a weakened grip of situations. Not apprehending one’s value because the superior person exploits their sentiments leaves them in a bad place in life. Feeling of momentary satisfaction from this superiority gets heavy on one’s heart as regret starts filling up the voids of free time. And soon enough everything will go dull and dreary because living with exploitation is not as easy as it seems. Also, when the get the taste of their own medicine, they’ll die. Empathy messes people up bad.

Lost art of letter-writing

in What's Viral by

One of the interesting facts we were taught as children was pigeons used as carriers. But in today’s evolutionary world, gone are the days when we need to make deliberate efforts in order to make something happen. Technology reaches to new pinnacle points everyday. Text messages, Whatsapp, Facebook Messenger, E-mail has left no scope for the lost art of letter-writing. Have you ever written a letter to someone? Or received a letter?

Letters which connected people on emotional level who were separated by distance. The mother writing a letter to her son who studied in a school miles away and expecting a reply. A soldier at post surviving each day by reading, and then re-reading letters sent to him by a lover and tracing the alphabets with his finger to remember the shape of his lover’s affection. A grandparent to find a desired disruption from a monotonous life to find an ‘I love you’ letter by their grandchild and pins the painting sent by the child along with the letter on door of his refrigerator longing for another to stick beside this one. Can you fathom the agony of a teenager who waits for her birthday letters just to affirm her faith in the fact that she is still loved?

They are more that words written by hand on a piece of paper. They are an expression of personal thoughts and significance for the recipient. Meaningful efforts to strengthen relationships as well as the sincere outpour of feelings of a person who took their time to write. The familiar form of genuine words fill the recipient up with comfort on receiving a letter after a painful wait.

Try writing a letter and post it to someone you care about and see the effects by yourself. I know for sure that I would certainly love to get a letter.

You are the most important person!

in What's Viral by

When was the last time you did something for yourself? Darling, your horoscope, your fingerprint, or the position in which you sleep neither defines you nor your future. Absolutely no reason to spoil your mood after reading them. You are the only person who can keep yourself happy. For once, stop worrying about your bad luck because it’s written in your horoscope today that you’re gonna have a fight with someone close to you. You already have a lot to stress about, don’t let these things frustrate you anymore.

Instead pamper yourself. Your relationship with yourself is the most important one and should be prioritized over all others. Do for yourself what you would do for the people you love. Self-care is important for our physical, emotional and mental health. Indulge in that little ‘me-time’. And before you know it, you will feel loved and worthy. To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance as Oscar Wilde said.

Have a spa-day. Get manicure, pedicure, facial anything which makes you feel fresh and beautiful. Buy yourself chocolates, donuts, pizza whatever that makes your mouth water. Dance around in your underwear. Sleep in and then later eat junk food in your bed while binge-watching your favourite series all day long. Take your dog out for a walk. Get dressed, put on makeup if you want and take oodles of selfies and photographs of the things which catch your eye to post on instagram. Go out and buy that dress which gives you hearteyes. Meditate to calm your nerves after a week full of tensions. Take your car, put on loud music, go for long drive. Take a bubble bath. Sit on rooftop in the middle of the night gazing at the stars. Watch your favourite movie and eat lots of ice-cream. Any of the special things.

There is never a good time or a bad time to please yourself. Keep in mind, that no matter what you should never be guilty about wanting to being alone or spend on yourself. It does not make you selfish. Because at the end of the day, you are worth it. It is your responsibility to take care of yourself and go to bed with a big ass smile on your face.

Late Night Conversation are wonderful

in Entertainment Time by

Just like the character Bucky Barnes in Avengers has trigger words to become a dangerous assassin, 3 am is a metaphor to those trigger words to become one’s vulnerable self. Up until which point do we realize that we are distributing coupons of our, let’s put it mildly, possible downfall? But let’s face it, only person talking to us at 3 am and ruining their sleep is pretty significant. Anyone for the matter of fact isn’t dumb enough to discuss their innermost fears and deeper desires with any Tom, Dick or Harry.

I assure you that you’ll have plenty of 3 am friends. Each one different from the one before. You want to be there for each other all the time and you mean it. But sometimes things get complicated. No reason to leave that person and move on. You never move on. They will always remember you as you mattered a great deal and you will always remember them because they handled you at your vulnerable hours. 3 am friends are special and will remain so, no matter how trends go about. Because, dude, at 3 am you make trends.

Those 3 am talks are indeed the precious ones. Someone took the time and effort to understand your confused personality, helps you sort your priorities and figures out a potential plan for you to comprehend and follow. What are the odds that person is gonna stick with you for a long while? I say that the odds are, apparently, really good. I believe this person, the one you’re thinking about right now is a big part of your life and you wanna keep it that way because it is not an easy task to give a part of yourself to someone else. It takes tremendous strength to be able to confess and admire someone after their confessions and accept them as they are. But kudos as you both have done it well, this special-beautiful-close-friend of yours and you. At 3 am words are boosted with life meaning an awful lot beyond just the definitions. It’s true 3 am has seen it all from our worst heartbreaks to reliving the best moments of our lives.

 

 

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.
