Advice

And this makes me realise that we have grown up….

When we really wanted something but didn’t even tell our parents because we knew they can’t afford it. Subscriptions of Spotify or YouTube replaced our old habit of hoarding songs in an SD card. When we re-watch a movie which we watched as a kid and fully understood the emotional value of it. When we realised no one apart from our parents gives a shit about us. We are on our own, now. When Internet speed jumped from 512 kbps to 100 mbps for us. When we started hiding our emotions and stopped telling people how we actually feel. First day in office we realised, life is complicated, and there is no end to this rat-race.When someone broke our heart. We realised that finding love is the second most difficult thing in the world. While the most difficult thing in this world is perhaps losing love, once we’ve found it….

And then we grew up…SiLeNtLy😊

Thoughts

Just a thought ✨

Every person needs to take one day away. A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future.

Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence.

Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for.

Franz Kafka

I can’t stop myself from sharing this lovely story which I just read. Found it worth sharing…Hope you all like it😊

When he was 40, the renowned Bohemian novelist and short story writer Franz Kafka (1883–1924), who never married and had no children, was strolling through Steglitz Park in Berlin, when he chanced upon a young girl crying her eyes out because she had lost her favorite doll. She and Kafka looked for the doll without success. Kafka told her to meet him there the next day and they would look again.⠀

The next day, when they still had not found the doll, Kafka gave the girl a letter “written” by the doll that said, “Please do not cry. I have gone on a trip to see the world. I’m going to write to you about my adventures.”⠀

Thus began a story that continued to the end of Kafka’s life.⠀

When they would meet, Kafka read aloud his carefully composed letters of adventures and conversations about the beloved doll, which the girl found enchanting. Finally, Kafka read her a letter of the story that brought the doll back to Berlin, and he then gave her a doll he had purchased. “This does not look at all like my doll,” she said. Kafka handed her another letter that explained, “My trips, they have changed me.” The girl hugged the new doll and took it home with her.⠀
A year later, Kafka died.⠀

Many years later, the now grown-up girl found a letter tucked into an unnoticed crevice in the doll. The tiny letter, signed by Kafka, said, “Everything you love is very likely to be lost, but in the end, love will return in a different way.”

Advice

Dear Optimist!

Dear Optimist,

You say that you are an optimist. That means that you think that there is goodness in every situation right? You try and find the good in all the bad. You try and smile as much as possible. You see the glass as half-full. Basically, you do everything they say that makes you an optimist!

Then, why do you, of all people, feeling blue? Why do you feel suffocated at times? Why do you feel like you can’t take it anymore?

Don’t they say that positive thoughts are supposed to keep you happy and if you are an optimist, all you have are positive thoughts (mostly!). Then, how come a few negative thoughts here and there are able to take a toll on you when your predominant thoughts are positive?

Because the word ‘optimistic’ itself means ‘expecting the best possible’ and when you are expecting something, it means that you are also leaving room for it to not happen. You are ‘expecting’ the positive, but if it doesn’t come, obviously the negative will because you are allowing it to and when it does, you of all the people, are not able to handle it because you are the ’optimist’. So instead, you conceal it.

I just want you to know that you don’t always have to be the strong one, the cheerful one and that it’s ok to be down sometimes. Just stop expecting! Don’t be an optimist!

Be a Believer! Believe in the positivity. Because when you believe, you don’t leave room for doubt. You just know. It becomes a fact, no questions asked!

When you believe, magic happens!

That does not mean that you won’t face any problems or challenges or fall on your face every now and then, but when you do, you won’t ’expect’ or ’hope’, you’ll ’know for a fact’ that you’ll get back up.

I know it’s not easy, changing your thought process overnight, coming out of a system because whenever we try we are met with an ‘it’s easier said than done’.

Just know that that you are not alone and sooner or later, we’ll get there!

Yours Truly,
SiLeNt BeLiEvER😇
