I am getting this question more often these days and I am sure the case is true for many of us who have come stronger in this lock down scenario…
We have never seen a vulnerable side of you … Do you get anxious, sad, etc.?
It’s all about how to express you emotions,and to whom you show your emotions…I hold this image of strong,fearless and free-spirited.Being happy and sad happens to almost everyone but being excessively happy or sad is in your control …The only people who would tap on my energy would be the ones living with me.
I try and live in the moment and work through my thoughts on my own. I guess that’s why no one sees my vulnerable side. I have my own share of struggles,road bumps and probably that made me carry this image.I had realized that no one can console me or make me feel better about any situation. I usually have to do that for myself. I am analytical and pragmatic so if something doesn’t make logical sense to me then I don’t tend to waste much of my time on it.Talking about unpleasant things and emotions makes me feel worse not better. I have always been a firm believer of energy both positive and negative and thinking of talking about negative things/emotions can only bring negativity to life.
One of the tools I use is to write down what is bothering me. There is something about seeing words outside my head that I can figure them out better. Whether it’s understanding the life goals or steps need to be followed to achieve it or simply resolving a conflicting situation,writing has always helped me.Jot it down in black and white and your mind starts conceiving it in a better way.
Most people don’t believe in themselves – most people undervalue themselves and undervalue their capabilities.And few can’t see the potential they carry just because someone is not evaluating it or approving it.The un-doable becomes the only option and when you only have one option, you succeed. You will find your strength when you believe that you need to find that strength.
My life mantra:
Whatever happens, happens for the best. Even when it is not ‘the best’ for me in short term, one thing I have learned in my life it is that eventually everything works out. You just gotta keep moving forward.It makes the life simple
Worrying is pointless.Absolutely Pointless. What’s the point of worrying? Whenever I start worrying about something I cannot control, I shift my focus. And they say the moment you lose focus you lose.Life is going to flow how it flows.The end goal is to enrich your life…To fill it with people you want to spend time with. To learn new skills. To help someone else achieve something. To have new experiences.
I find it’s the best time to fuel the mind,body and spirit.It’s the time to shift from outer to inner world ,from unconscious to conscious…It’s an opportunity, look at the bright side,utilize it, untangle those knots and express love and happiness…Love everything and every one around you,realize the difference between need and desire.
Is it a troubling time? Yeah !!!
Can we overpower it with love,compassion,patience,respect and grace ??? Certainly…
