Everyone holds people’s opinions on a pedestal and base their lives around it!
However, have you ever read the definition of an ‘opinion’?
A view or a judgement formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge.
The opinion is not based on facts neither does the person have the 100% knowledge of your life?
Then why are these opinions so important?
Think about it.
Scenario A// What if I post this picture and I don’t get enough likes on it?
Scenario B// What if people judge me if I post that? *deleting post*
Scenario C// *Writing caption*
This doesn’t bode well in comparison to other people’s captions.
*Writing caption the 30th time*
People are afraid to open up on social media.
They pre-judge themselves based on what other people *might* think of them.
Authenticity is going down and more than that, people are backing out of posting anything on social media!
Even though it could have been super meaningful.
It might have changed someone’s life trajectory or more importantly, their own life’s.
What should happen?
People should open up and simply say what’s on their mind.
And target the audience that the content is for.
Instead of targeting everyone and worrying about their opinions.
If you think about the past, then you’d regret it.
If you think about the future, then you’d always be anxious.
Be in the present! Live and enjoy each day to its fullest!
An open mind is the key to accepting change and implementing it too.
One can listen to endless inspirational stuff and read n number of books, but if you have a pessimistic mindset towards it, then what’s the point of it all?
First step is to acknowledge that you need change.It all starts from there and it’s all about the Mindset.
Only the achievements are compared, not the goals or the aspirations or the journey or the day-to-day life!
It’s simply astonishing how the society works!
The best way to move forward in life is to follow your Journey and stay in your lane!
Can’t get any simpler than that!
Celebrate others successes instead of dwelling over them!
Support them in their failures instead of enjoying them!
To top it off, walk with others instead of trying to trample them!
Who we are.
Who we become.
What we think.
Where does it all come from?
Certainly not from a bunch of books taught to us during school or college.
We are an amalgamation of every person we meet in our lifetime, every experience we have, every activity we are a part of, our conversations, what we read, what we observe around us.
It all affects us.
We are a sum total of all that.
Have you ever noticed how the heart beats?
It never beats in a straight line, because that would simply mean you are dead!
It beats upwards and downwards (the heart rate increases and decreases), which means the heart is beating regularly – that’s how it’s supposed to beat.
It also means you’re living.
Our lives work in the same way. However, no one notices it.
If you do the same thing everyday, without any change, for the good or the bad, it resembles the heart beating in a straight line.
Life is about ups and downs. Whenever there’s a down, it also means that you’re going to rise from it and be at the top again.
It also means that you won’t stay at the top for long, and there’ll be a down soon and you should be ready for it instead of being stressed about it or dwell about it when it happens.
Live your life the same way your heart beats!
