Hello dear people,
It’s Saturday. Time for my Saturday ‘My Corner’ post.
I won’t try to write any experiences or thoughtful posts today. Nothing fancy. Nothing exceptional.
Today, the only promise I want from each one of you is to remember that you matter. And you matter a lot.
Believe that there must be something special in you that God Almighty chose to make a human out of you and not just another living being, a plant, or an animal on this planet.
You were bestowed with a ‘human’ life. Precious. Magical. And supremely gifted.
You are special in the eyes of the Almighty. Then, it doesn’t even matter if other fellow humans don’t think of you as special, put you down, ridicule or mock you, don’t care about you, and don’t think of you in high regard. It doesn’t matter because it is not necessary that two people have matching opinions on any given topic. If they don’t value your awesomeness, it doesn’t make any less of you.
Don’t give others’ opinion so much value that it starts making you feel low or worthless. No one should be given the power to hurt you, physically or emotionally, to a level that it destroys your peace of mind.
You are enough to treat you as special. And that matters the most.
Your feelings are valid. There is no need to be ashamed of your feelings or existence. Love, loss, happiness, sadness, success, failure, ecstasy, anxiety, depression – are all valid human phases – each associated with specific emotions. Getting attached to people, falling in love, losing loved ones and material possessions, ups and downs in career and relationships, fights, arguments with friends, clash of opinions with random people, diseases, loss of health, feeling unhappy, and feeling as a loser – is common to all of us.
Yes, these feelings are common to all!
And all of us go through similar emotions while dealing with them. Some do it really well. Some struggle through it. But each journey is valid and important.
Today, just make a promise to yourself that you will never put yourself down. Stand up for yourself. If you won’t, then who will?
Stop speaking negatively about yourself to others and to your own heart and mind. Believe that you are amazing. And if you appreciate a certain quality in others, try to absorb that in your life. Emulate good qualities to become a better version of yourself. But don’t let it make you believe that you are any less.
You matter. Your emotions matter. Your feelings, your decisions, your struggles and your journey are important. All feelings are justified. And fair.
Life is sometimes unfair. It can be nasty and difficult. But despite all odds, it is worth it. For all the beauty, love, happiness, kindness, and emotions you have ever experienced are because of this life.
Choose life over everything. Choose yourself over everyone else. Choose love over other emotions. Choose to be hopeful when life brings despair. Choose to be positive that there is always, always light at the end of the tunnel. Just hold on for a bit more.
There is a solution to every problem. Just look around. Maybe you can spot one. And maybe you can show the light to others, as well.
And if you are unable to choose the above or find a solution, please seek help. Talk to professionals, therapists, family, friends. Never be ashamed of the inability to deal with your thoughts and emotions. It’s normal to seek help.
Since you have made it till here keeping yourself strong, you will make it far ahead, as well. Just keep that faith in you. You can do it.
Because, you matter.
Lots of love💖 Stay safe.
