Thursday Articles 23.2.17

We human beings have a tendency to let things of past and probable future ruin our present, with or without reason.

Things that went wrong in past keep hovering in our mind for too long, ruining the joys, we brood over things that went wrong in past, the question is can we actually allow them not to? Some people are worriers by nature, they just cant stop themselves from brooding, fretting over things that has happened and are about to happen.

They are not one of those lucky persons who can sing “que sera sera” that is, “What will be will be” from heart or “let bygones be bygones”, they are fixated on “Whys and Hows”.

Can we consciously change this mindset? Then how? I have tried changing mine for years, quite sincerely, if not devotedly but have not been very successful, but we can divert our mind, that also works. At least works for me, it turns the night into cloudy day if not full of sunshine.

Have you ever battled with this human tendency? Did you win?

Thursday Articles 16.2.17

People should always pick up their own friends, lovers and spouses-why? Because if you test a person yourself chances of your fitting in with that person are far higher.

We all do it, mingle with the friends of our friend, or siblings and mostly after some time we discover that it was not that good an idea. Sometimes we end up regretting it, especially if our relationship with the person who introduced us to that group is ruined, we often discover that his/her friends quite naturally are more loyal towards him/her; or worse, we discover through his/her friends that s/he was not what we thought s/he was! That is a different issue, but in the end, it is always better to spend your time with those who you have decided to make a part of your life, share your time with.

Even your best friend’s friends may not be of your league, or they may get jealous of the special bond you share with your friend and try to ruin it. That too happens very often!
