You’ve got to ask yourself, what you’re living for, who you’re living for, and if none of those answers begin with “YOU”, then you’re living your life wrong. You’re living a lie.
Everything you do should revolve around you. Every person, every place, every moment, should start and end with you.
This is your LIFE and you shouldn’t spend it on dull things or boring people. Don’t spend it in people who don’t understand the type of love you carry within your bones. Because you only live once and it’s your job to make it count. So let everyday be yours, own it. Never apologize for being who you are. Your authenticity is the only source of a consistent delightful life.
In a world that seeks connection, we oddly avoid eye contact, we time our text responses in order to protect ourselves from seeming too eager or too interested, and we hold our feelings back because we don’t want to seem overly emotional or unreasonable.
We silence our instincts, and at the end of the day instead of feeling good about ourselves, we feel alone, we feel misunderstood.
Remember, it is okay to be emotional, to seek help, to confidently tell someone you enjoy being around that you are infatuated with them. There is nothing wrong with vulnerability, with being human, for that is what creates depth within our relationships, and that is what ultimately unifies us. If your feelings & emotions bring joy, show them. Living a happy life means, do what you wish to do right now.
Suddenly social media has created so many experts who brag about their success stories. Most of these only talk about their success. Half of these dumbfucks have little to nothing success in their field, rest half are just scammers.
Genuine people who made it big will never sell their recipe to success. Because it’s personal. My journey with my relationships, friendships, religion, finance & career, all are personal to me. I may give tips to my son one day, but why will i tell some random person to follow my steps & make it happen, if i already made it so far walking on my own!!? Nobody helped me become what i wanted to be. The journey wasn’t smooth sailing. And i also know nobody will put similar effort to be where i am.
Ask Elon Musk how he got into Tesla without founding it & how it’s the world’s highest valued automobile manufacturing company in stock market while making only 0.13% of cars in this world!!? Will he ever tell you in a while how that happened? It’s consistent rigorous efforts of time & discipline, that’s paying off right now.
Stop selling success stories. Now we live in a world where people first need to know what they shouldn’t do. I want more people to talk about setbacks. Failures & struggles are fun too. I don’t know why people avoid that part! If you can’t enjoy the struggle, you don’t deserve the SUCCESS.
1.Who live in my city or near my city (max 2-4 hours away). We text whole day. Talk every night. Meet every weekend or we meet at least once in two weeks. 2.Who live in a different continent with huge timezone gap. We text here & there. We talk every weekend. We meet once or twice in a year.
I never entertained anything below these two. That’s the reason most of my friends are my friends since past 1600 years. It’s hard to entertain new people, because people are hella inconsistent with their approach. And consistency is a quality very few people pack in their soul, which soothes our soul in return. Consistent communication is the backbone of every equation.
Thanks to everyone who wished me “HAPPY BIRTHDAY”, who sent a big box of sneakers or a tiny little gift with a card, who knocked my door at 12am, who threw cake on my face, who hugged me from behind, who squeezed me, who slapped my ass, who kissed my cheeks purposefully, who kissed my lips accidentally, who snatched my phone, who made a mess in my living room, who had pizza at 1am with me, who put redwine on my white couch, who went on a late night drive with me, who gave me a head massage & back massage in front of 17 friends, who said “we are friends forever”, & who told me “TAPPIE YOU ARE WHOLE MINE THIS LIFE OR NEXT”.
At the end i must say, I don’t give a shit about birthdays. I am not a 3yr old kid who’s dying for gifts & people around. The more i am moving closer towards my 30, the more i am missing my high school, engineering college or MBA days, sometimes i also think about getting married & pumping 90-95 babies inside my future wifey. Kids are angelic to my eyes, not a secret.
I love you all because i love the vibe. You all make me a better me. Your wishes help me move forward stronger. Your midnight calls make me see a new world. Your energy makes me feel energetic. All of you are adored. Many call me TAP, some say TAPPIE, BESTIE DEMI says RUDEY coz my resting bitch face is hella rude, 3 say DADDY for fun, and everything is accepted that comes with a smile. Still feeling like a 16. Feeling like nothing much has changed in me, the same naughty sporty happy happening beefcake i used to be. Birthdays aren’t that important, friends showing up to surprise you at 12am is important. These feelings are irreplaceable. I owe you all whole of me. (If anyone noticed bit too much of sass in my snapchat stories, JUST SWALLOW IT.)🤪
The thing about pain is, it won’t last forever. And it kills you right now, but with time it gets better.
The thing about scars is, they all start to fade. Until nothing is left of the cuts that were made.
The thing about today is, there’s always tomorrow. And if you can’t find your smile, i have one you can borrow.
The thing about help is, beside you it stands. But it won’t know it’s needed, unless you reach out your hand.
The thing about love is, you can’t feel it’s touch. Until you let someone know that, this world is too much.
Tomorrow is not promised. Not a single second or minute is. So, live for today. Keep the promises you make. Take action on the things you desire and need. Remind those that matter to you, that they are loved and you are grateful for them. Never leave someone you care about on negative terms. Give more than you take. Make the calls you’ve been telling yourself you’ll do ‘tomorrow’. Let the small shit go. Never go to bed angry. We will all die one day. So learn to live each day with the promise to yourself that “it’ll be better than yesterday”.
