Notions I trashed that helped me boost positivity!

Hello! How is everyone’s day going? Positive, I hope. We’re all in a bad phase in life, a bit of optimism is what we need. Lockdown started out pretty hard but we all just made the best out of it. Honestly, let’s look at the brighter side; Family dinners together, binge watching favorite movies at home, having little picnics and garden parties at home; ah, so wonderful!

Enough of cheesy talk though. Onto today’s post!

As I said, positivity is the need of hour. So I did some self-renovation. I figured there were a few thoughts that weren’t worth keeping in my head, so guess what, I trashed them.

-Everyone’s having a better life.

I have this feeling, this insecurity that everyone is somehow, having a better life than me. The truth is harsh. Turns out people have worse ways to live. Comparing myself to to others was one of the worst thing I ever did. I always thought that everyone has a perfect life. From the coolest kid in the class to the closest friend I have, I particularly compared my problems to theirs. Little did I know that everyone has misery, but not everyone shows it.

-Nobody needs me!

Ah, turns out some people do. This is a sort of feeling where you don’t realize the feeling until the moment approaches. I said these words when I was 11. I guess I got into a fight or something. I was angry, sad and scared. We say piercing words when we’re angry. Over time, I found the right friends who made me feel special. My parents always made me feel wanted, since the beginning. As I always say, Time makes a difference.

-People are copying me

People copying me always made me sad. Not jealous or mad, but sad. Sad because people are forgetting their true essence, their true interests. Everyone, literally everyone has someone who is copying them. I was totally bothered with people copying me or being like me, but then I had my mom saying, “In turn you must be happy! People are trying to be like you. It turns out you’re better!”. So yeah, I bothered about trashed it. There are so many people trying to look like Taylor Swift and sing like her, and she just wears all of it SO WELL.

But again, I try to talk to people I REALLY care about, regarding this. And they understand me. The others, well, don’t bother.

-People care about you

Wrong again. Turns out most of them don’t. You do something wrong once, people talk about it. The next day, list out one person who remembers anything. So we’re just an item to talk about. But people’s opinion doesn’t change the truth. What changes the truth is, us, when we act upon it. And I feel truly happy about trashing this game-changing notion. Instead, do something to impress the loved-ones. They’ll be super proud, right?

When there aren’t any useless thoughts dangling in our mind, there is lot more place for optimism. You start looking at everything in a different way. I hope this post has helped you and is speaking to you directly. Take these words from experience :-)

*Questions welcome! I'm kinda planning to do a Q and A post soon (or maybe later, who knows), so if y'all have any questions, literally any thing, about me, blogging, school life- drop a message, here! Looking forward to answering and writing!*

  1. Hey Divi! I’m coming by your blog later than I’d intended because I forgot, then by the time I remembered I was going to bed πŸ˜‚πŸ’•
    You have such a lovely blog! This was a great post with some awesome tips. It’s so important to remember that people really don’t care about things we’ve done later on! While they’ll talk about it for a moment, it’s totally gone in their minds in the next. I’ll hold on to embarrassment in certain situations, but the incident has been long forgotten by them.
    Happy slightly belated birthday to your mom! πŸ˜„
