Note (2/...) i) accept. accept the situation you are in and the fact that you can’t change it.
ii) whatever happens in your life, own it. don’t go about blaming people for your sadness because chances are that they are dealing with issues you don’t know about. be kind to them and don’t be too h*****n yourself ever.
iii) if you are having a bad day, switch off your phone for a while if that seems okay and keep it out of your reach. contemplate about why you are feeling the way you do and even if you don’t get an answer, it is okay. it is okay to not know things sometimes. it gets better after a while. give it time. have comfort food and a shower for the time being. read your favorite book and write. take a long walk or just watch the sky changing colours. it helps.
iv) stop listening to sad music if it makes you sad. in fact, stop doing anything which makes you unhappy. also, don’t be afraid to cut off toxic people from your life even if it hurts.
v) it is not always important to have a closure. there will be times when you’d get left and there will be times when you’ll leave. if you aren’t happy with someone and wish to leave, tell them why and do not leave someone over texts! if you are left by someone without having any closure, accept it and don’t try to find answers for everything. it is better to leave things be at times. also, stop blaming yourself. you have the right to have flaws just like other people.
vi) expect less, even if the person is the one you love the most.
vii) there will be times when things won’t work out the way you had wanted them to and that is because there is something/someone better. always.
viii) don’t force happiness. if you want a day off, have it. but don’t make it a habit. get up from that bed and push yourself harder.
ix) whatever happens, happens because of a reason. even if you fail sometimes, don’t give up. keep working hard. you will not see the results immediately, but eventually.
x) don’t say yes to things if you don’t mean it.
xi) get up and leave if you think you are not a part of this story. don’t settle for something/ someone less than you deserve.
xii) love isn’t for people like us. - rashi bareja
