Comparing Lives? Don’t. (1 min read)

We’ve heard it so many times that life isn’t a bed of roses. There are ups and downs and the successful ones are those who are strong enough to deal with the challenges and smile through the pain. Do you often find yourself looking at someone’s Instagram post thinking, oh my God, look at her, what a life man! She’s got everything and look at me and everything I have to deal with. It’s pretty normal to feel that way especially when you’re going through a phase of depression, anxiety or both. But stop yourself right there. Don’t compare lives because that girl who’s smiling in her Instagram posts is probably fighting a silent battle that no body knows about. The only thing you need to learn from the social media whilst you’re fighting a battle is to try and gather all the positivity and try to fill all those cracks in your life with it. I mean, instead of thinking how much better someone else’s life is from yours, maybe you could think, wow, look at her, she’s dealing with life’s challenges with so much positivity that you wouldn’t even know if there’s something wrong with her. Be that girl. Wake up with a smile on your face, with a positive mind and a clean heart, with the motivation to fight. Forget about how you cried yourself to sleep last night. It’s a new day and a new beginning, seize it!

We often make this mistake and it’s completely normal to be that way but we often don’t realize that when were so involved in someone’s Instagram or Facebook posts, we are comparing our lives to theirs. We’re unintentionally feeding our minds with the thought that someone has a better life than our own. This usually happens when you yourself are going through a hard time, you log in to probably distract yourself but then all of a sudden this post comes up and hey, your friend is on holiday and she or he  is having a great time and you’re just sat there like, oh great. Why me? The thing is, this could probably make your hard time worse because the last thing you want is to start feeling like you haven’t been blessed at all. This is where you have to stop your thoughts, fight for your mind to think positively and let it change your situation. Make yourself strong enough to realize that it’s okay for someone else to enjoy their life when you’re going through a hard time because that hard time will end soon, and you’ve also had your good days! If it doesn’t help, log out! Logging out doesn’t mean you’ve fallen weak, it just means you need time by yourself, to fix yourself, to deal with issues and you don’t need to see what other people are doing in their life right now!

Here are some simple steps to take when you feel that you’re comparing your life to your Instagram or Facebook friends:

  • Gather all the good memories in your mind. Think about all those times in your life when you were blessed. (and trust me, you still are)
  • Look at the bright side! You might not believe it when it’s happening but every hardship has a blessing that isn’t quite evident till the hardship is over.
  • Log out. It’s not a bad thing. I think it’s the best way to get away from an anxious feeling.
  • Find something else to do, like walking outside, reading a book or just simply watching a movie

Come on, you can do it! You have it in you and you can control your mind. Turn everything into positivity, every approach into a positive approach and watch your situation change, watch the world become beautiful around you. The moment every negative thought is fought and defeated, every hardship starts to feel like a blessing.

Good Things Are Supposed to Happen to You! (2 min read)

I was watching a video of motivational speaker Les Brown and he instructed the audience to say “Good things are supposed to happen to me.” He recommended that the audience say this to themselves daily. Brown then went on to say we tend to expect bad things to happen to us, so we need to affirm the positive. Affirmations are designed to change our subconscious thoughts by constantly referring to them in our conscious minds. Our subconscious impacts us in ways we are unaware of. We tend to have thought patterns and experiences in our past which, if we are not aware, can undermine our conscious efforts to do better in the present.

EVIL IS EVERYWHERE. It’s right around every corner of the world. Wait a minute! (Just remembered that Earth has no crooks because it’s spherical), but yeah, evil ranging from its tiniest to prevalent form is all over. Not giving your little brother his fair share of the chocolate bar; using your nerd, spineless, pale skinned but good friend for your own advantage are illustrations of evil in its small forms. On the other hand, rape and taking the lives of fellow humans are evil in the most cruel forms. Continue reading Know Where You’re Coming From (2 min read)

Soul (1 min read)

Maintaining balance in your life requires keeping your soul healthy. You probably have gathered this bit of information by now if you’ve read my FIRST (yay!) two posts. What is your soul? It’s that part of you that you know is there, but you just can’t quite describe. It’s what makes you-you  -your essence if you will. If you’re neglecting this aspect of yourself, just as with the mind & body, you will become out of balance.

You may say, “I’m not religious” or “I don’t believe in that kind of stuff,” but even if you’re agnostic or atheist (which by the way, I’m a Christian & I truly do not judge those who don’t have my same beliefs), you still have a spiritual component to your “self,” & if you’re not nurturing it, you’re neglecting a third of your being.

As a Christian, I nurture my soul through many different outlets, including daily devotions, prayer, meditation, yoga, & maintaining healthy relationships with others. If you don’t have the same spiritual beliefs as I do, rest assured you can still nurture your soul. You can do this through meditation,  yoga, & maintaining healthy relationships to feel connected to something larger than yourself. These activities don’t have to be religious-focused. No matter your spiritual beliefs, or lack thereof, you still have a soul that needs to be nurtured and maintained. I hope you have a wonderful balanced week!

Death happens because it has to happen! Anyone can die when his time is up. It is when a person stops to breath, when all his body functions ceases that we say such a person is dead. We feel so terrified of such situations because we believe the separation is permanent, we have no idea of how the hereafter is and even if we do, we do not know when it will be our time!
