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
I pray that you are always surrounded by people who love you unconditionally and cherish you for what you are. ~Latika Teotia
We all should try our best to be kind and compassionate towards others no matter how different or weird their views or actions may seem. We must remember that no one is perfect; everyone makes mistakes.~Latika Teotia
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
When you value your life and yourself, you will begin to value others as well; as it is said “a person who treats himself gently will always treat others kindly”.
It is only human to long for emotional support and there’s nothing wrong or demeaning about it. Loneliness is a major cause of depression and leads to negativity; thereafter it is downhill all the way. In such times people need emotional support of someone who believes in them. Seeking or accepting support during these times is very courageous and a positive step. In fact it is the self affirming support of family & friends, that pulls out people from depression and restores self confidence, self esteem as well as self belief. ~Latika Teotia
Inside us all there’s a person who yearns for respect, love and a feeling of being wanted. What a beautiful world it’ll be if we all treated each other with respect, courtesy and made everyone feel wanted??? ~Latika Teotia
Dear Heavenly Father,
Sometimes, things happen in this world which leave a trail of sorrow. But, O God, we know that you love us. That you care for each one of us- even those that are the cause of sorrow for others. Please be by our side, show us Your light and lead us to peace and joy. Guide those that inflict pain on others so that they too get healed and start spreading joy. You are our last refuge; take us under your mighty wings so that no harm befalls us.
“When you take time and look lovingly at everyone your perspective changes for the better and brings peace in its wake.” Life is a blessing for those who love easily.~Latika Teotia
“Giving is a game in which everybody wins.”Why I say this is because when you do something nice or help someone unconditionally, the brain is flooded with serotonin ,the feel good chemical that helps to energize you. That’s why you feel happy when you share your gifts.If you notice the successful people are the ones who share their gifts without holding them back. By sharing with their colleagues,they create a powerful network of people who trust and support them. I won’t be wrong in saying that you can enjoy a living only by how much you give. So beautifully written by Harold Abbott~
“Do something for somebody gladly;
It will sweeten your every care.
In sharing the sorrows of others,
Your own are less hard to bear.”
