I Think Its Brave

brave

I think its brave. I think it is brave that you get up in the morning when your heartaches and your life is messy and you do not feel like being soft for the world. I think it is brave that you continue to love, and express, and open your soul, despite the way you were treated in the past. I think that it is brave that you keep going, that you keep believing in something more, something bigger, even when you may not know what you are hoping for. I think it is brave that you fight, I think it is brave that you choose, every single day, to move forward- because that is what makes you strong – THAT IS WHAT MAKES YOU STRONG.

My Silence Means I Am Tired Of Fighting

My silence means I am tired of fighting

My silence means I am tired of fighting and now there is nothing left to fight for. My silence means I am tired of explaining my feelings to you but now I don’t have the energy to explain them anymore. My silence means I have adapted to the changes in my life and I don’t want to complain. My silence means I am on a self-healing process and I am trying to forget everything I ever wanted from you. My silence means I am just trying to move on gracefully with all my dignity.

He Ran His Hands Over My Past

He ran his hands over my past

He ran his hands over my past –
lingering over the dents and worn edges of my heart.
And when I thought he’d run away
like the others had…
he told me I was a warrior,
and that
I’d never fight
another battle alone.

I Sat Down With The Universe And Told Her I Wanted To Grow

I Sat Down With The Universe And Told Her I Wanted To Grow

I sat down with the universe and told her I wanted to grow.

I told her to use me as a vessel. So she made me uncomfortable. She stripped me off everything I knew. Made me learn how to be silent, how to let go. How to stand my ground, how to be more understanding. How to fight, how to survive. How to be more assertive, more loving, less naive. She told me to take everything I have learned and share it with others.

I Think All That Most Of Us Really Want, Is Someone Who Turns Out To Be Exactly Who They Said They Would

I Think All That Most Of Us Really Want, Is Someone Who Turns Out To Be Exactly Who They Said They Would

I think all that most of us really want, is someone who turns out to be exactly who they said they would. Someone that says “I’ll stand by you when the storms come.” And when the skies get dark, they walk right beside you. Someone that says “I’ll support your goals and your dreams.” And when you start hustling for everything you’ve ever wanted, they don’t feel threatened or intimidated. Someone that says “I want to learn about you and understand you.” And when you show them all of your flaws and insecurities, they don’t run away. Someone that says “I want to grow with you and I want to build with you.” And when they see how much time and effort it takes, they still continue to fight for it. Someone that says “I will love you unconditionally with all my heart and soul.’ And when you don’t have your best day, and you are struggling and frustrated, they still love you no matter how you feel. I think that’s all any of us really want. It’s all any of us truly desire. It’s simple. It’s not asking for much. It’s not asking for much. But we all know how hard it is to find.

The Sword

Darling girl

Do you really think that you need 

Rescuing from the danger surrounding?

Dry your eyes,

Tighten you armor and

Draw your sword.

I promise 

You will slay those dragons.

Here’s Why You Should Not Hide Your Phone In A Relationship

should not hide your phone

Yes, these are easier times, or so we say.

We keep saying that these are easier times because communication is very easy these days. We say that we have all the means to interact better. Yet, why are we increasingly having like so many communication breakdowns?

We are actually at a point of time where we have a relationship with our phone more than we have a relationship with anyone else. Phones take most of our time even though we claim we aren’t addicted to them. We continue to say things like, “Oh! I can live without the phone”. But, can you?

Now, not only are the means of communication causing communication breakdowns, but they are also making you more detached from the things that happen around you. One more thing that they are doing is that they are making relationships tougher. Yes, this is true.

One of the recurring complaints of so many people in relationships is that their partner doesn’t look at them and is constantly engrossed in his/her phone. Well, there is no lie in this complaint. We actually have partners who want to click a photograph of everything and post it to social media platforms and then they want to know how many people liked the photo and what not. So, the thing is that the phone is greater than the real world now.

But, there is another thing about our phones that hurt our partner more than anything else. The problem is when you hide your phone…

Yes, some of us call it privacy and some of us call it a giving-space. Whatever justification you might give for hiding your phone from your partner, it is always going to make your partner feel that you are cheating on them. It will be a trust deficit that you won’t be able to fill with anything, like ever.

Now we don’t want the phone to come between you and your partner, hence here we are to convince you with reasons why you should not hide your phone from your partner.

Pay heed, these could save you a lot of trouble:

 

Trust:

It is practically needless to say that if you give your phone to your partner, they are going to trust you far more than before. This trust is not because they know about your whereabouts or something.

This trust happens between two people because of the realization that they are sharing the most private parts of their lives with you. Your partner will actually feel that they are significant in your life and after this, the relationship will obviously go in the right direction. Take this step and you will feel the trust between you and your partner.

If you aren’t doing anything wrong, prove it:

It is a fairly simple thought. If you aren’t in the wrong, you will never have anything to hide. Your partner assumes that you are doing something wrong which is why you are trying to hide your phones. This thought makes your partner go crazy about your act. Then they don’t even understand rational aspects like privacy or something.

They will consider it as hurt to their ego that you are doing something seriously wrong. In this process of making up a story against you, they will think too much and this will obviously have a serious impact on your relationship.

Transparency:

Just like trust is important for a relationship, transparency is crucial too. It is actually one of the pillars of a happy, long-term relationship. If you are transparent with your partner, nothing can separate the both of you.

One more important thing about transparency is that your partner will be able to know about your needs. And this is actually good. Only when your partner is aware of your needs, they will be able to be better partners than before. It is all going to lead to a more fulfilling relationship, trust us!

The closer together:

Well, when there is nothing between your people to hide, you will obviously be far closer than before. The reason this happens is that once you hand over that phone without any inhibition or doubts, the relationship gets into an all-new phase where there are no secrets or confusions. And even a robot can tell you that such a relationship will be a close bond between people that is sure to last forever. And it is pretty easy, you just have to show them the darn phone!

Fights will reduce:

Oh! If I had a dollar for every time I have heard couples fight about not giving the phone to each other, I would be pretty rich. When you are going to give your partner the phone and dismiss all their doubts and confusion about you and form a closer bond, obviously fights will reduce. It is a full circle and I don’t see why people will not want lesser fights in their relationship.
