I saw a post today that said, “When you finally learn your place in peoples lives, your feelings won’t get hurt. And loyalty doesn’t mean accepting unlimited amounts of inconsistency & pain from others”.
Whether it’s friends, family or whoever. I swear that’s the truth and one of the most important life lessons you’ll learn.
I’m not perfect and I don’t have to be. When I first realized this I felt an intense relief. This realization allowed me to actually become a better person. It gave me the strength to embrace my flaws and learn from my mistakes. The pressure melted away. I wouldn’t have been able to start examining my mistakes if I felt like I had to be perfect. Once I found out it was okay to be imperfect, everything changed for the better.
Don’t criticize yourself for making mistakes. Just be conscious, make new mistakes & learn from older ones. Remove inconsistency from life. LIFE IS FUN, LET IT BE.
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I am a big sucker for every marvel cinematic universe character & yes i liked HAWKEYE. I didn’t know Jeremy Renner has some amazing songs till yesterday. I am kinda into this song. Thanks to my bestie DEMI for the recommendation. Those who fancy my snapchat stories & question since when i play piano, answer is since my grade-6 days.)
I’m a firm believer in leaving this world a better place for future generations. Being an optimistic person has presented me with so many extraordinary opportunities to give back, to volunteer, and to touch so many lives along the way. I’ve had the privilege of advocating for those dealing with bullying, eating disorders, and mental health issues. Everyone has causes close to their hearts, so whatever you’re passionate about, do something to make a difference. Do your part to make this world a better place.
I have been through enough ups & downs in my close to 30 life. I gave myself oppertunity to live/work/study in 4 cities/countries. I graduated engineering & MBA way back. The friends who entered my life those days are still intact, that’s my biggest flex. My address will change again next year. I will not say i enjoy travelling, everyone does. I will say, i relocate every 2-3 years. The more people i came in touch with the more i understood, we live in a world of WEAK MEN & GIRLS BUSY IN TIKTOK. Proper inconsistency at play. Still there’s hope to experience a world focused on growth, happiness & fulfillment. WISHING YOU ALL A PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR 2022. LOVE AND RESPECT.
DON’T LET ANYONE’S IGNORANCE, HATE, INCONSISTENCY, DRAMA OR NEGATIVITY STOP YOU FROM BEING THE BEST PERSON YOU CAN BE.
BE THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF FOR YOURSELF. (Not my words).
(This video got nothing to do with the post above. I want to highlight this sillicon valley strategy of tech entrepreneurs. Steve Ballmer almost ruined entire enterprise market & mobile division of Microsoft, then Microsoft promoted Satya Nadella as CEO to clean up all mess & now Microsoft is profitable. Same happened with Google before Sundar Pichai succeeded as CEO. Now another Indian Parag Agrawal will succeed Jack Dorsey as Twitter CEO. Most of these big tech make big mess with some product or services, then hire an Indian CEO to fix it. Good part is, Yes Indians have the brain to pull it. Bad part is; WHY WAIT SO LONG TO RUIN WHAT’S GOOD!! At the end it’s public or investor’s money. Not sharing this because my blood goes back to India. CEO changed, stocks tanked. Now Elon is praising Indians, I wanna see when he hires an Indian CEO, so that i can buy few more Tesla stocks.)
When I give, it does not come with strings. I’m not keeping track of what you owe me. When I give, I choose to do so without ulterior motives. I give because I’m genuine. I give because I know what it’s like to be without. To long for and be ignored. To speak and not be heard. To care for and have nothing returned. When I give it’s because I get it. It’s because I know the value in what I have in my heart and I refuse to let the world stop me from sharing that. But when things start being taken for granted, When you no longer appreciate my sincerity, I won’t switch, I won’t get angry, and I won’t be spiteful. I’ll just get smart and I’ll change your role in my life. Because when I give, I’m all in. But when I’m done, there’s no looking back.
I stopped sending paragraphs. I stopped telling people how to behave. I stopped entertaining retaliation & inconsistency. I stopped telling people how important is communication. I started walking away from all these crap, blocking, and distancing myself. Life is becoming peaceful. Sometimes being yourself & independent in life is better than being surrounded by halfass people.
(This post is not for those who came & vanished in past. It’s for my future person, in case you experience something is odd in me or missing in me, just say it and keep forgiving me till you experience the best of me.)
We already know that no one is perfect. But knowing that doesn’t keep us from doing things we might feel badly about later. Your mistakes & understanding to own them makes you unique. But when the same mistake is repeated often; that’s a sign of inconsistency in your character, which can later birth numerous bad habits & a peculiar tendency to become a systematic liar. Start from owning your mistakes one by one. I’ve found in times like that it’s best to come clean and own your mistake. People will be so much more forgiving and sympathetic when you are honest about it because they can relate. Even better, you will inspire them to do the same thing by showing them how honest and beautiful you can be without being perfect.
Stay strong. Tell on yourself today about something you feel badly about having done or said in the past. We should regret our mistakes and learn from them, but never carry them forward into the future with us.
