Hurry! Run Away…From Toxic People !!!

Meeting or even giving mind space to toxic people is such a waste of time. It’s pitiful how some people can ONLY & ONLY spew venom on others. In case you are wondering who these toxic people are, let me give you some of their common traits : bullying, taunting, labeling, ostracizing others, only to hide their own insecurities. I am sure you must have come across such prototypes at least once.

The situation becomes worse when our own so called ‘near & dear ones’ look down on us. Hurting people by excluding them, bad mouthing them, treating them like dirt for no plausible fault of the victim, is a sin which even the Universe doesn’t forgive so easily. Karma eventually catches up.


To all those who have ever felt unloved & unwanted, please remember you are BEAUTIFUL! If some people can’t appreciate your worth, it’s their misfortune, not yours. Cut & shut such toxicity from your life. Life is meant to be lived, not dragged. Focus on building your own life. The ability to move on is a trait that can be cultivated. Self love is the best form of love. Don’t let their venom kill your soul.

Love & peace to all !!

The Illusion Called ‘Perfection’

Imperfection isn’t such a bad thing, guys. It’s a trait we are all born with. Don’t be hard on yourself while trying to be your ‘ideal’ best all the time.

By their very make-up, life & physical environment on earth are imperfect. Trees are not painted picture-perfect green all the time, they also shed their leaves & stand bare to witness the wind. Flowers aren’t always facing the sun in all their glory, they also wither away with time. This is called the life cycle. Nature is pleasing as it is & so are we.

I am not saying don’t enhance yourself, please do. Shed your old skin for a newer, more positive, more confident YOU but don’t overkill & try to become ‘flawless’ in everything you do. That’s not possible, my friend. While always be the best version of yourself, remember that best doesn’t equal perfect. Even the best of chefs sometimes don’t whip up their specialty dishes in the most exemplary manner, even the best of consultants sometimes go astray in their domain areas. This is called being human. Let’s be humane about being human. 🙂

We end up inviting mental & subsequent physical problems while chasing ‘perfection’ in every little sphere of our lives. Let go of some thoughts. Sometimes letting go liberates us mentally in ways I can’t even begin to describe in words! It’s a powerful feeling.

Love yourself while being a work-in-progress. Don’t wait for ‘so-&-so’ life event to happen before you start accepting your own self. Life is a journey, with new twists & turns everyday. Put your best foot forward in every situation, learn from every experience but don’t be overly critical when you are not ‘perfect’ according to your own/others’ ‘standards’. We are all learning as we live. Cherish the journey, the destination is not ‘perfection’ but gratitude – for all the learning & experiences. 🙂

“Oh You Are So Pretty!” :P

”Oh you are so good looking”, said X to Y. Y blushed & said “oh, thank you! “

I have never understood why people say ‘thank you’ when someone compliments them for their looks. Did they customize their face & skin color in the factory of the Universe? Of course not. They were just born with their physical features so then why should they be taking credit by saying ‘thanks’? They should just say, “well, yeah, nature made me like that”.

Same goes for those who are brandished ‘ugly’ by these so called societal standards. They didn’t choose their features but the people looking down on them are certainly choosing their words. By being mean, these bullies only expose how shallow they are from within. Now, whose the ‘ugly’ one here?

Embrace yourself the way YOU are. Real beauty lies WITHIN. It manifests itself in our WILL POWER, DETERMINATION & POSITIVE ATTITUDE. This is not a cliche but the truth.

Improve as a person not as a ‘body’. Don’t be so obsessed with physical features because they don’t define who you are – your thoughts & actions do. A monochrome life on this planet would have been dull therefore the Universe decided to put in variety of all sorts – cherish them. Value them. After all, there is a sense of harmony in diversity.
