Break free of the bars that hold you caged !!!

Unless you risk and break free of the bars that hold you caged you won’t gain something which can take you to even greater heights. Gather all the courage; dare yourself to challenge the limits and cross the threshold of fear as well as anxiety- something better awaits you at the other end. Those who wait for fruits to fall wait longer than those who pluck it off the tree. ~Latika Teotia

Stop berating and punishing yourself !!!

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

Live the life which pleases you !!!

You appear to have been so caught up in trying to please others that you’ve forgotten your own self. By leading this kind of an existence, you’ve surrendered the real you to other people’s impulses and extinguished a better part of your personality. Wake up! Recognize the real you and get ready to live the life which pleases you. ~Latika Teotia

Let no one dictate your actions or directions !!!

You don’t have to be apologetic about your life nor are you supposed to look over your shoulder for someone else’s approval about how you should live. This is YOUR life; feel free to choose your style, your friends and how you wish to live. You don’t have to change yourself just to suit someone else’s needs.

Let them know that you are flexible but you have a spine; let no one trample over you- no matter how close (that person may be). If a relationship isn’t working, just walk out; let the other person know that you have moved on. Someone better will come along sooner or later, someone who’ll love you unconditionally- have the patience to wait and till then enjoy being single. It’s your life let no one dictate your actions or directions. ~Latika Teotia

Get rid of the source of distress !!!

We can deal with the whole world and smile even if things go wrong because other people don’t mean much to us; their place in our life is, at best, temporary. But when those we love also become the cause of our pain, then it’s time to relook at our relationships and priorities.

If someone is causing us endless pain and is not ready to yield, then it’s better to carry out a surgical operation and get rid of the source of such distress. Just as it’s better to get rid of a tumor before it afflicts the rest of the body so also relationships that become a drain on our emotions, well being, happiness and peace must be severed at the earliest. We shouldn’t punish ourselves for their toxic behaviour or their mistakes. It’s time to take a look at our own interests too.

Set limits and be firm about them !!!

Be kind to others; show that you care. But by being kind I don’t mean that you get used, that you get trampled all over and in the end there’s not very much left of your original self. Set limits and be firm about them. You can be pleasant, kind, caring and all that yet have your own space. Never look down on someone, give them the respect they deserve. How you treat others, especially those who are less fortunate or can’t repay, defines you and shows your true character. ~Latika Teotia

Give your time and energy to those who love you !!!

Don’t get tied down to something or someone when you know that it’s over; learn to let go and move on. There’s no point in wasting energy on someone who has decided to find happiness elsewhere. A crack has developed in the mirror of relationship and no matter what glue you use it’s not going to be the same again. Remember that you are strong, brave and beautiful so be bold enough to walk away. For every person who doesn’t value you there are scores of others who appreciate and admire you; they would be honoured to be a part of your life.  ~Latika Teotia
