It is said that great friendships are made through persisting sheer struggles together. Some people say that a friendship that spans over 7 years can last a lifetime.
I’d say, some people are crazy.
Thou how whimsical the myth sounds, it is evident to point out that friendship is perhaps the most auspicious form of relationship there is.
It nurtures our mind and soul. We grow through it.
We practically hunger for it. It is in our blood. We are social beings who aspire towards it with zest.
In my experience, a great friendship comes from fostering a bond that is built on a spirit of selflessness. It is through a mutual consideration that spans over an elongated period of time. When you stop putting in the effort, even a great friendship falls apart in time. …
What’s the first thing you do when you wake up? For me, I practice gratitude as soon as my eyes open up. I'm thankful for been given the chance to wake up.
Even if the crippling sadness that’s oozing through my eyes as those watery tears run. I can still find myself, in a place where I can learn to appreciate the chance for a new day.
As I know deep within, it’s another day filled with possibilities. Things I can change about myself and perhaps give joy to the people in my life. …
Love your children, as much as you would love yourself. Do it a million times more as if they are your prized possessions because they are a living and breathing part of you.
The 18 years of a child’s life are perhaps the most important ones in their development. Many parents tend to fail in these 18 years in different scenarios. But those mistakes adversely affect their children.
Parenting seems like a tough challenge for all those people who feel that it is a hard job to be good at. Rather than doing it by instinct, we have to be careful in our actions. …
After writing consecutively on medium day in & day out, I have been able to write about a myriad of topics, & subjects through the experiences I have either lived or persisted through. I decided to use this given time in this pandemic to write about them in ample detail.
This time has given me the opportunity to explore life, and write about my experiences eloquently and share them with the world. I hope my words are able to connect with anyone who reads them! …
Did you know that on average most of us are prone to make mistakes during our early phase of relationships? Whether its friends, parents or romantic relations we tend to go with our gut even though sometimes it is not in our best interest.
Chances are you might have made mistakes, trusting your moral compass. You might have created a discrepancy between you and others by being you.
Maybe you were too honest, or too nice.
Perhaps you did not read the signs. You might have even got lost along the way. I know I have, quite a few many times. …
A classroom filled with people faces worth blues and awe
I sit in the middle, contemplating truth for naught
There is strictness in the air, the feeling of ambience is dull
I sat beside those who call me friend, frozen in serene calmness
And then it happens, it struck asunder — she walks by, it follows her under
like a shadow of light, a feeling of attraction — I’m hooked to catch a glimpse
She smiles at me, in all the weird buzz — her lips red velvet, her eyes light green
Her scarf with a tinge of orange and serene — she walks with a gait, that draws me…
When I was a teen, I suffered badly at school. Trust me, the senior year of high school was where I gave up. It sucked bad for me. My ADD was at its all-time high, and precise performance was the death of me.
It was beyond me, even though I tried so hard. I struggled so much with answers. They used to say, I write complex answers. Well duh, I still do especially when it came to calculus.
My parents thought it best to put me in engineering because way back when they told you that if you don’t become an engineer. You’re screwed. …
Yes and no. Your college degree can be a sign of your hard work and persistence. It can also be a clear sign that you’re driven and dedicated to achieving desired goals.
I have got mixed feelings about a college degree depending on the majors. But here’s something to motivate you. Here’s a screenshot from the Project Management Insititute’s site showing the pre-requisite needed for their Project Management Professional Certification.
There was a time I used white noise to help me relax when I had PTSD. Lately, I have been using different forms of music as countermeasures to help me stay productive as well as relaxed.
Whether it’s listening to raindrops falling or the clouds thundering. A serene ambience is something I aspire in my life. Don’t we all? Especially in times of the pandemic when every channel is just filled with one terrible news after the other. …
For he is not a man,
whose eyes never tore upon for ease
Parched lips crave, thy expression
tempted for a single droplet to taste
Anxiety forms in their chest, then
when no one is by their side, they call for help
Cried everyone, at that time, for release
when their soul doesn’t receive peace
Woh mard, mard nahi,
Jis ki ankhoun sey ansooh nahi girta
Tadaptey labhoun sey uska Izhar
Ek boond, boond key liye tarasta
Tann mein jhigchak si banti tab
Jab aas paas koi nahi hota
Roya har koi us waqt
Jab rooh ko sukoon nahi milta
وہ مرد مرد نہی
جس کی آنکھوں سے آنسو نہی…
