I am speaking from experience that by sharing our issues or problems always and all the ways makes us feel better; it also helps us in finding solutions as well as in healing.
I did lose many people by withdrawing during the tough times in my life because of pretending to be brave and happy- though I desperately needed help and a shoulder to lean on.
Now when I look back, I feel I should have trusted the positive response from my near ones. Bad experiences from couple of toxic relationships doesn’t mean that we put everybody in the same bracket.
I am sure there are many sweet souls who would love to help you and even if they can’t, at least they will try to console you and help you in finding solutions or resources.
Since the time, I started opening my heart to my soul connections; I have started experiencing a lot of love, care and strength. Your soul connections won’t ever make you feel small or make you feel that you are a burden. They will be the wind beneath your wings. ~Latika Teotia
If you cling to your resentment, you are consigning yourself to a lonely, bitter life and running the risk of developing serious emotional problems. Know that- no situation can ever be improved by our resentment. It can only be made worse; and we are twice the victim –firstly of the event and then of our resentment of it. ~Latika Teotia
Which heavy baggage have you been lugging around for so long? Which guilt have you been hiding? What is eating your very soul? And what is the price that you are paying for it? Is it worth it? Do old sorrows, setbacks, perceived insults, grudges, and so on matter in the long run? Don’t you think that the price is too high?
It’s high time to bury the dead- let the past be past. Don’t rake up dead issues and don’t water those poisonous weeds. Don’t give energy to something which is too heavy for your mind body and soul because it is likely to break the back of your endurance. Bathe yourself in the gentle glow of God’s unconditional grace and mercy. ~Latika Teotia
Selective amnesia or forgetfulness is good for leading a happy life. Forget the uncomfortable incidents and be grateful for the good ones. Write your bitter memories on sand and the good ones on stone so that winds of time can quickly sweep away the bad memories and the memorable ones remain permanently etched.~Latika Teotia
As long as there are people in our lives of our past whom we have not forgiven, we are not free of them. We are carrying them on our back. They are with us all the time forever close, breathing down our necks, whispering into our ears, threatening our piece of our mind, a constant conscious or unconscious reminder of our pain or injustice. Only forgiveness has the power to break this chain of pain. Forgiveness cleanses the soul. For your own good, try to forgive some today , I know it is easier said than done but you can consciously try to practice forgiveness. A better way to live peacefully is to constantly forgive. ~Latika Teotia
Forgive and forget what had happened. Do not brood over your past mistakes and failures. Relax !!! You are constantly evolving. Love yourself to bits.
If you commit a mistake, stop berating and punishing yourself. You are human and you will commit mistakes. God loves you so seek His forgiveness and move on.
Maybe, the mistakes you commit could be because you’ve been pushing yourself too hard. Maybe, it’s time to take a break. Give yourself “me” time- you may feel rejuvenated after your ‘aloneness’. Draw upon your inner strength and come out even stronger and better. With God on your side you don’t have to worry. Start appreciating your strengths you have been blessed with and practice self compassion.~Latika Teotia
You don’t have to be too harsh on yourself when things go wrong and punish yourself for every mistake- in fact I feel that you don’t need to chastise yourself at all. When we condemn or castigate ourselves for any folly, we are letting loose an air of negativity- punishments have this uncanny trait of lowering the morale and bringing gloom all around. So, it’s okay to commit mistakes- we all do- learn from them and move ahead. ~Latika Teotia
