Almost all of us in life hold on to a lot of unanswered questions and confusion. Then suddenly, there comes a moment when clarity dawns on you and you decide to begin afresh. ~Latika Teotia
Confrontation leads to more confrontation and ultimately it results in loss of peace of mind. Give up the tendency to pick up issues or quarrels at the drop of a hat, don’t plan or plot revenge and so on. That path is one of destruction and nothing good will ever come out of it. As a first step ignore smaller issues, stop reacting, give up anger and start seeing a friend in everyone. Very soon you’ll find peace and your changed attitude will be obvious on your face as well as in your body language and all this will pass over to your relationship with others. It’s very difficult to frown at someone who’s smiling at you. Make that smile your permanent garment.
Forgive and forget what had happened. Do not brood over your past mistakes and failures. Relax !!! You are constantly evolving. Love yourself to bits.
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
There are times when we tell lies not because we want to or because it’s our second nature; we hide the truth because we don’t want to hurt or offend the other person. The cause of our dishonesty, therefore, is not our nature but our respect or love for the other person or persons. What we forget is that the basis of a good relationship is not fear but mutual trust, faith in one another and love. It’s better to be honest and speak the truth rather than hide behind a veil of lies. Sooner or later, the other person is bound to know the truth. Imagine the feelings when it is discovered that it wasn’t love but fear that was the cornerstone of your relationship. So be truthful in all your dealings with your loved ones; it’s better to suffer a temporary disappointment rather than a permanent crack on the mirror. ~Latika Teotia
Many issues can be resolved when you take out time to listen to others with an open heart. ~Latika Teotia
O God keep me motivated enough to spread loving vibrations, magnanimous enough to ignore small stuff and tender enough to understand others better.~Latika Teotia
No one likes to be changed to suit the desires of others; they always want to be accepted as they are. ~Latika Teotia
None of us is perfect, yet some of us seek perfection in others and that is the root cause of broken relationships as well as misery. We should rather focus on making relationship perfect by filling it with love, understanding and mutual respect. Like it is said that soul mates are not met they are made.
Don’t ever allow the fear of losing a relationship cause you to submit to being controlled or manipulated. Any relationship worth having must be one of “Mutual Love, Respect & Understanding”. Don’t give in! You are “well-able”. Don’t let anyone play upon your supposed “weaknesses” God has given you wisdom to run your own life. So, you don’t really need anyone constantly telling you what to do and what not to do. Know Your Worth !!! ~Latika Teotia
