Crying is considered a weakness, isn’t it ? We cry when we get hurt – physically or emotionally, when a loved one leaves our side, when we get low marks, when we are overwhelmed with happy-sad emotions and many other reasons..

But people always say that crying is for losers, if you want to be strong, don’t cry. I would say, if you wanna be strong, cry your heart out loud – as many times you want, until you yourself want to stop and gather yourself up. Crying relieves you, your emotions, your pains; it lifts up your heart.

Crying is one of the most beautiful emotions that any living being has been bestowed with. If you cannot cry, you cannot feel. It makes you feel human, shows your soft side. Who said it’s wrong to show your vulnerable side to those who love you ? Until you show that you are sad, your hurt may get missed by even the dearest ones.

So do yourself a favour, and let it out. Cry out loud. And see how light your heart can feel after that. Be human, get connected with your birth self. Stop preaching or practising subduing your emotions till they burst out. Shut the door, switch on the shower and let your tear-glands flow…

Regrets.. Or Not!

Many times we are at the cross-roads having multiple options, each weighing over the other. But do we ever rest to decide which option would not make us regret most at a later point of time ?

We know what the society says, what parents say, what friends advise and what all relationship gurus preach. But just answer one question before taking any step – at your deathbed, would you not regret not doing something rather than doing something to save grace ?

One thing I can say for sure from my life experience so far is that all the rules are bull-shit. They were created by other humans from their life experience, they may not hold for you. It’s your life, go live it. Do what you want but don’t hurt others in that process because it will haunt you till your death.

If you are mad at a friend, your parents or your ex, instead of giving your ego some satisfaction, pick up the phone and call! At least try to mend fences before it’s too late. Would you not regret not having that friend around in your life ? There is a chance that the friend will never reply but at least you won’t have the regrets of not trying.  Or are you planning to be mad at your parents all your life and never letting them know what upset you ?

Remember this, the bigger the ego, the bigger the regret later. Not everyone in this world is a bad person, everyone deserves a second chance at least. Your friends and family may curse you for calling up the people who hurt you and left your side but would you not rather call and clear things up than always remain in the mystery of “what if”?

People also talk a lot about self-esteem. Well, agreed that you shouldn’t let it go so low that you hate yourself but when you love someone dearly be it your parents or friends or lover, does that self-esteem really matter ? Would you not keep everything aside just to spend one more day or one more second with them ?

So do one thing right today, pick up the right people wisely you want around in your life forever, make amends, have a fresh start. A guilt-free life is the best life.
