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
Don’t pine for those that have left you, don’t waste your precious emotions on those that have hurt you, instead, erase them from your memory. Though it’s easier said than done but unless you sever all ties with your hurtful past you won’t be able to get out of the quicksand of toxicity and you will never be able to completely heal yourself. So take hold of yourself, realise your strengths and work on them. You never know what beautiful connections are in store for you. ~Latika Teotia
No matter what sorts of challenges you are facing or what type of protection you need at this moment; God IS THERE to provide you necessary courage and strength to face the situation .So, instead of being anxious, pray,stretch your faith and trust your trust more. ~Latika Teotia
You are your best help. Don’t look to others when you are down, get up and get going- if someone lends a helping hand, treat it as a bonus; don’t ever take anybody’s help for granted and don’t depend on it either. It’s only when you feel responsible for yourself, for your troubles, your failures, your disappointments and your problems that you will realise that you have to tide over them too. So, if you are down, fill yourself up with courage and get going- no one’s coming to pick you up. ~Latika Teotia
You get up in the morning; it’s the start of yet another day in your daily life. However, if you want to make it interesting, exciting, extract the best out of it and make those 24 hours go a long way then make believe that it’s your last day! Make every minute, every second, nay, every heartbeat count. Do things you’ve hesitated doing before. Go on, apologize to that dear friend with whom you haven’t spoken for quite some time now. Express your true feelings to your sweetheart. Give a hug to your children or grandchildren and tell them how much you love them. Wear that beautiful dress you’ve been saving for an occasion. Eat from your best crockery, drink from those crystal glasses that you’ve been maintaining for some grand party. What’s more precious than your own life? YOU are THAT important person you’ve been waiting for so long. Throw yourself a party, pamper your own self, tickle those taste buds and have a blast.
We keep waiting for that right occasion to take out that pretty dress, little realizing that we may not fit into it after some time. We keep maintaining those crystal and bone chinaware little realizing that they can break. Use them often; use them for and on your own self- because the most important person is YOU. ~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.
Get up !!! Step out !!! And keep this in mind that God’s help is close at hand. Repose trust in Him and all will be well. ~Latika Teotia
God is all forgiving and very very kind- despite all our faults. He never hurts or harms His children no matter how much they take for granted their relationship with Him. Remember He never forsakes us, it is we who ignore Him when times are good and go running to Him when things turn nasty. Not even once does He bear any grudge, nor does He turn us away. With a heavy heart full of guilt we approach Him and return feeling much much lighter. That is the beauty of our relationship with God.
He encourages us to come to Him not out of fear but out of love. No matter how many times we may have forgotten Him, He still accepts us lovingly; He is too kind and His Mercy is far bigger than our mistakes. His arms are always open to receive us with all our faults. We should go to God because we love Him and not because we are afraid of Him. ~Latika Teotia
Woman you are strong, you are patient and you have been blessed with a very large heart. Stand up, stand tall and take your place under the sun. Get out of your “I am weak” mind set, crush that self doubting frame of mind which makes it impossible for you to take a step forward and soar on the wings of confidence. You have only to decide to don the mantle of the confident, vibrant, positive woman and the world is yours. So step up, step out and fly…~Latika Teotia
Choose hope, instead of feeding your sadness. Steer clear of the fear of failure and disappointment. Soar high on the wings of endless hope and God’s unconditional love for you. You are a woman, a beautiful woman, be confident in yourself. ~Latika Teotia
Miracles happen when you don’t give up. ~Latika Teotia
