Brave Act Of Self-Care !!!

Sharing our worries and problems makes them seem less light- I speak from my own personal experience. It also helps us in finding solutions as well as in healing. When I opened up to my friends and shared my worries as well as problems, I not only felt lighter but also began to heal faster because I felt loved and cared.

Yes, initially when I was passing through tough times and withdrew myself, I did lose some people because I was not confident about their understanding me as well as my problems and felt that they would , instead of helping, be judgmental. During those miserable days, I pretended to be tough, brave and happy- though I knew in my heart of hearts that I desperately needed a shoulder to weep on.

Now when I look back, I feel I should have trusted the positive response from my near ones. Bad experiences from a couple of toxic relationships doesn’t mean that we put everybody in the same category.

I am sure there are many kind and sweet souls who would go all out to mend a broken wing. Trust them to help us find our feet because they genuinely care for us and even if they can’t solve our problems they can at least hear us out.

Instead of clamming up during our times of distress we should trust our friends because there are genuine people who can lift us and be the wind beneath our wings. ~Latika Teotia

Just listen !!!

Though saying “me too” and “same here” allow others to open up and connect with us more but when someone is sharing his/her heart, we shouldn’t interrupt; as interruption might break their flow of thoughts which may make them forget the most important point or they just might get put off.

We should try to curb the desire of sharing our personal experience at that moment and just listen patiently. Maybe at some other  point of time , we can share that we also feel or think the similar way about that particular issue. ~Latika Teotia

Resisting won’t help !!!

Good or bad, happy or sad, everything that happens does so for a reason; no incident in this world is a stray occurrence. Don’t be unnecessarily perplexed or anxious about it.  ~Latika Teotia

Live to be a lighthouse !!!

Become a ray of hope for someone by helping them in whatever way you can to rebuild their life. Live to be a lighthouse for others and make the journey of your life worthwhile. ~Latika Teotia

Your life is your own, make yourself proud !!!

Don’t give power to others to control your emotions or make you feel inadequate or remind you of your limitations and generally have power over your life. Frankly speaking you don’t need such people- avoid them and keep them miles away from you. You alone are aware of your limitations and your strengths, I’m sure you are capable of handling your life well. God has made you worthy, so inspire, push and help yourself. Remember, God helps those who help themselves. ~Latika Teotia

What is God trying to tell you lately?

God keeps sending messages through the Universe, through His Angels and through a million different ways. Be open, look around and you will not only see but also hear what He has to convey. Listen to everything, not only to the good things but even to the uncomfortable ones- including criticism, harsh truths of life and so on. If you are willing as well as open He will find ways to tell you exactly what is meant for you and guide you on to the chosen path. ~Latika Teotia

It’s OK to cry once in a while !!!

Whenever I am sad and depressed; whenever I cry tears of pain or frustration I ask my little heart, why do I cry. Why does this emotion overtake me time and again. Then a little voice from within say that it’s OK to cry once in a while. If you’ve been hurt, it’s better to cry yourself to calmness, to console yourself instead of retaliating. These tears make me human instead of becoming a hard hearted person. Tears retain the innocent being within me. So tears are my biggest strength, they are my best friends. ~Latika Teotia

To seek God’s help you have to help yourself too !!!

It is quite likely that while you are praying for God’s mercy and your wishes to be answered He too may be waiting to give you the desired wish. But, you have to at least start working towards it. You can’t just be sitting idle waiting for miracles. You have to work towards it and when the going gets tough, pray to Him to help you out. To seek God’s help you have to help yourself too.
