What life is about……

Life isn’t about if you have lots of friends, or if you are alone, and it’s not about how accepted or unaccepted you are. Life just isn’t about that.

But life is about who you love and who you hurt. It’s about how you feel about yourself. It’s about trust, happiness, and compassion. It’s about sticking up for your friends and replacing inner hate with love. Life is about avoiding jealousy, overcoming ignorance and building confidence. It’s about what you say and what you mean. It’s about seeing people for who they are and not what they have. Most of all, it’s about choosing to use your life to touch someone else’s in a way that could never have been achieved otherwise. These choices are what life’s about.

Soul Crushing Pain

Blend of sentiments

BY : TANUSHREE

The never ending thought has hit my mind again,
Do i want this from my life?
Or M I missing something waiting for me the otherside?

This is getting so hard to even concentrate on any thing now,
I want to close all the doors and talk to myself for a while.

It seems like i was born to do something else,
But i am stuck in this place with no grace.

My soul is shouting and my mind is confused,
I am in pain with no wounds.

A Smile Cost Nothing But Gives Much

Did you know that many who have tried, but failed, to commit suicide, said that if some stranger had just acknowledged their humanity with a smile, they would have changed their mind?

A smile does not only have the power to save lives but also the ability to change someone’s actions if given to the right person at the right time. A smile is contagious, a lot like kindness. When someone is kind to a particular person that person then feels motivated to be kind towards others also. Smiling works in the same way. When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too. I passed around the corner, and someone saw my grin. When she smiled I realized I’d pass it onto her.

I thought about that smile and then realized that it’s worth it. A single smile, just like mine could travel round the Earth. The most powerful aspect of a smile is that a smile itself is the most powerful human quality. It represents happiness, kindness, compassion and can give someone hope. A smile is defined as turning up the corners of your mouth to show an expression of happiness. Though really a smile has the hidden power to change lives. From saving someone’s life to simply cheering them up. We should all smile more often, after all, it’s free and the best thing someone can wear.

Patience

I am a patient human being. I know that everything in life comes to me and occurs at the perfect time. I don’t force anything to hurry up in my life, for it is all unfolding at the perfect time and just as beautifully as the spring blossom.

In waiting, there is always something for me to learn. I am patient because I am at peace with the way my life is progressing. In a time when I must wait, instead of choosing to be impatient, which speeds up nothing, I use that time productively by extending kindness and help to others. These acts of compassion make me feel wonderful.

Healing

Every day I choose to heal for my heart, mind, body and spirit. I work through the darkness in my life and I am able to find the stars.

I heal in my own time and I am gentle with myself every day. I forgive myself and I forgive those who may have hurt me in the past. My heart may be broken but I choose to fill the cracks with love and gentleness.

A letter to self-harm

Dear Self-harm,

I want you to know that it is over between us. I know I have said this before, but it has taken me every ounce of courage to say it now. You left when I was fourteen and I thought we were through, but then you came crawling back.

You made my family and friends concerned, and forced me to distance myself from them in order to keep you satisfied. They kept telling me how bad you were for me, but you kept tempting me to come back for more. And I did.

You visited me often, even at unspeakable hours, ready to scream and yell about how much I deserved you and how you were the only one to truly care about me. And that, no matter how much I hated you, I couldn’t let you go because I was addicted to the pain you gave me.

You often lied to me, telling me that by listening to you I had control of emotions that I felt I couldn’t handle. You kept telling me that the relief you gave me was worth more than the pain before and afterward. But all you did by lying to me has you led me into a pool of unmanageable guilt, frustration, and self-loathing.

Just in case you’re wondering why I’m writing this letter, let me remind you of our fight. Remember how I hadn’t seen you for a couple of weeks? And then a few days ago, you visited me while I was in bed? You wouldn’t stop yelling at me, no matter how much I yelled back. You only stopped when I did as you told me. Except then you left me all alone. Left me with the tears, the guilt, and the pain of what you had just made me do. You left me all alone, not giving me the usual contentment and short-lived pleasure I felt when I listened to you.

It’s going to be hard not being with you anymore, we’ve been together for two years now. The attachment we had with each other was huge, but it’s time to move on. I don’t want to be your slave anymore. I don’t want to have to look at you when I change my clothes, when I have a shower, in the summer when I go swimming, or when I’m playing a sport. Because you disgust me and it disgusts myself that I’ve put up with you for so long.

I know you won’t miss me because you’ve got plenty of other friends to be with. I just wish you weren’t so popular. I hope one day, they too, have the strength to get rid of you and you’ll be all alone, just like you’ve made me feel for the past two years.

You’re very enticing, but don’t even think about coming back again because this is it. This is the end.

Yours never,

Broken crayons.

An enduring promise

I promise myself……..

To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person I meet.

To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true.

To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet.

To give so much time to improving myself that I have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds.

To live in the faith that the whole world is on my side, so long as I am true to the best that is in me.
