Vulnerability and honesty is the only way! I believe if we share our grief, our loneliness, our dark moments, we share our humanness.

My priorities were faith and family, whereas his were himself and money.

I’m very happy to express, write, and always tell others how beautifully my parents raised me. My parents have always emphasized that you should do whatever you want in life; their mindset was that we trust you to make the proper choices and decisions. They will, of course, offer guidance, but the final decision will always be ours (the children). Our value system was clearly stated as non-negotiable by them.

Despite the fact that I am in my thirties, my parents still encourage me to be polite to…

“I was a high-functioning depressive, seemingly pulled together and buttoned down. But inside deep, I was numb and mute. Now on the other side of divorce, I know that was me fragmented and doing my best to cope. But my body knew.” — Liza Caldwell

“I want a divorce.”

Those are undoubtedly four of the most painful words a wife/husband can say. Divorce will leave you feeling sad, lonely, and financially strained, leaving you wondering what to do next. Research says after a divorce, it normally takes two years to feel normal again. …

“There is no such thing as a “broken family.” Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents. Families are made in the heart. The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut. If you cut those ties, those people are not your family. If you make those ties, those people are your family. And if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you.”

Make each moment count!

zindagi ke safar mein,guzar jate hain jo makam
woh phir nahin aate,
woh phir nahin aate
zindagi ke safar mein,guzar jate hain jo makam
woh phir nahin aate,
woh phir nahin aate

phool khilte hain,
log milte hain
phool khilte hain,
log milte hain magar
patjhad main jo phool
murjha jate hain
woh baharon ke aane se khilte nahin
kuchh log ek roz jo bichad jate hain
woj hazaron ke aane se milte nahin
umr bhar chahe koi pukara kare unka naam
woh phir nahin aate,
woh phir nahin aate

Ankh dhokha hai…

Loved reading every bit of this writing <3

It’s never easy finding the right message to convey your emotions when a loved one endures a difficult time period or the loss of a loved one….

The joy of using my old iPhone 6S

I still remember the day back in July 2016 when I bought my first iPhone 6S. I had recently got a job and after a few month's savings, I was all set to gift myself something expensive. I never wanted to burden my parents with buying me expensive stuff so I had always thought if and when I would work, I will buy myself a nice smartphone as I was a Motorolla user.

I consulted my younger brother and he advised that if I wanted a long-lasting stylish phone I should go…

Are obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors interfering with your daily life?

It’s natural to double-check that the iron is unplugged from time to time, to be concerned that you may be infected by germs, or even to have an unpleasant, aggressive feeling. However, if you have obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), the obsessive thinking and compulsive habits become so overwhelming that they begin to interfere with the everyday life. OCD is a type of anxiety disorder that is marked by uncontrollable, intrusive thoughts and ritualised, repeated habits that you feel obligated to conduct. …

“Grief is like the ocean; it comes on waves ebbing and flowing. Sometimes the water is calm, and sometimes it is overwhelming. All we can do is learn to swim.” ~Vicki Harrison

Death is, without a doubt, the most difficult thing a person can face. It causes us to crumble. It makes us fall to our knees. Some people are so important in our lives that the prospect of life without them feels daunting and incapacitating. …

The Art of Grief and Loss

I need to tell you that, in the face of significant loss, we don’t “recover” from grief.

Yes, I’m using the royal “we” because you and I are all a part of this club.

I also need to tell you that that not recovering from grief doesn’t doom you to a life of despair. Let me reassure you, there are millions of people out there, right now, living normal and purposeful lives while also experiencing ongoing grief.

All the things you’ve heard about getting over grief, going back to normal, and moving on –…
