We’re revising the life lessons we almost forgot. Thank you ‘Dear Zindagi’!
1/9Don't confine love. It happens beyond boundaries...
It rarely happens that you meet a stranger and he shakes your senses upside down. But when it happens, it is sheer magic! Thanks to the preset notions about love, we're now eternally confused between love and relationships. Not always will love end in a perfectly tailored relationship or marriage. At times, you've to cherish the suddenness of love instead of trying to giving it a name or confining the person.
2/9Fall in love with small moments...
Life has given us unlimited reasons to be happy, wrapped in moments. Look at the small wonders, little occasions of joy. Breath deeply and thank life that you've been blessed with one!
3/9Everyone deserves a second chance!
Not everyone turns out to be a perfect companion, and this especially applies to people who belong to your closest circle. Friends and family. They will be hurtful, they will be loud, they will be unfriendly. But at times, you've to look where is it all coming from. Mostly, they're concerned about us, it is just the expression that goes wrong. J
4/9Cry out loud, let it go, smile :)
Who said, crying is stupid? When tears are about to burst out, don't stop them. Holding emotions back and not letting them out only makes you feel worse. Cry, let it all go out. Then smile, smile, smile, repeat. :)
5/9Self-respect comes before EVERYTHING else!
You will get everything you're worth of. Do not compromise with your self-respect; do not bow down where you should not. Favours usually do not come free. Don't pay with your self-esteem. And anyway, short cuts do not get you anywhere.
6/9Not doing well mentally? It is perfectly OK to seek help.
We were forever taught to go to a doctor when the body is ailing, but NEVER when the mind is AILING. But believe this, the mind needs as much care and healing as the body does. When is stress, go, visit a psychologist or psychiatrist. They are not aliens, they're something better!
7/9Mistakes are great, they teach us.
If all boyfriends (or girlfriends) were nice, there would be no breakups. If all friends were faithful, there would be no fall outs. The losses show us real worth of people and things. It is okay to trust the wrong people and make the wrong decisions. If you never make a mistake, you'll never learn the most realistic lessons of life.
8/9There will be many friends, only few will stick to you.
Friends, best friends, good friends, acquaintance; so many of them! But as life goes on, you'd know that very few of them are going to stick to you through thick and thins. Wait till you find them, and don't let them go.
9/9Dare to make your own choices!
Dare to aspire, and dare to chase it. You know your capabilities the best, not the society. 20 years down the lane, you must be able to stand in front of the mirror and tell yourself, 'I did it'!
