Being an OPTIMIST and LOVING YOURSELF

Sometimes over thinking leads you to a wrong path, and sometimes you just get a new way, a light to your darkened world by simply thinking. That’s the power of our thoughts. Our mind is restless. It never stops even for a fraction of a second from thinking. Have you ever wondered what divergent thoughts you have had till now in your life?? One second you are thinking about your favorite chocolate and then you think of some other person who loves the same chocolate, u now start thinking about that person, their nature, their appearance, their behavior with, their personal life, everything!!! See…how mind is!!! Which is why it becomes really important, I would say it rather becomes crucial that you learn to control your thoughts, and that you learn to have positive thoughts. Because negative thoughts lead to negative action and negative action leads to a negative life.

People differ from their thoughts. Two people, maybe they are brothers, maybe they are blood-related, but you might have seen sometimes how divergent they are individually!! That’s because of their varied thoughts. For example, suppose the mother brings two chocolates for her two sons. One of their chocolate’s falls on the ground. Now, the other one offers to share his chocolate with him thinking that “It’s alright!! It doesn’t matter if I get to eat half a chocolate instead of a full one, I can share it with him”. Now the other one thinks that my brother is offering me half of his part just out of pity, and he is always showing that he is something more than me. I ain’t sharing his chocolate. See the difference?
Even just a little change in our thoughts could make life a lot easier and happier for all of us.

So, the synopsis of it is, TRY TO CHANGE YOUR THOUGHTS. BE OPTIMISTIC. BECAUSE, IF YOU’RE AN OPTIMIST, THEN, THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU WILL ALSO BE AFFECTED BY YOUR POSITIVE VIBE. THEY TOO WILL TRY TO BE POSITIVE, TO BE AN OPTIMIST, AND THIS WILL LEAD TO EVERYONE BEING HAPPY.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
If someone calls you a jerk, what would be your reaction?? I suppose most of you would get frustrated, and you would reply back the same, right?? But just think what difference does it make if you call him a jerk back or just smile and tell, “thank you!!” or just don’t respond at all and stay calm and not get tensed or frustrated…It doesn’t matter!! You should stop caring what people say about you, because only you know who’s the real you, not even your friends or family know you truly. No one can take decisions better than you yourself, because you only know what’s best for you and what’s not. Just stop for a moment wherever you are in your life right now, and think…
ARE YOU SATISFIED WITH WHAT YOU ARE DOING RIGHT NOW?? DO YOU THINK IT’S THE RIGHT THING TO DO?? ARE YOU HAPPY DOING IT?? ARE YOU TRULY ENJOYING LIFE?? DO YOU REALLY LOVE AND RESPECT YOURSELF???
Because in order to do something awesome, something great, you first need to learn to love and respect yourself. You need to learn to be proud of the way you are. But it doesn’t mean you can just do anything you like!! You’ve also gotta stay on the right path. And sometimes you also need to change some things about yourself for your better only.

As Socrates said, “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”

    It is one of the most remarkable and awe-inspiring article I have ever read. I don’t know how to praise you. I just loved it. Each and every word has different divisions but in the end it leads to same point: be optimistic and start loving yourself. You are right we should value ourselves cause who we truly are is what is deep inside us. Our ideas, our thoughts, our feelings should be given a greater importance. And only we can give that importance. I’m so inspired by your thoughts and writing that I have also shared it my friends and family. Wish you a happy life ahead. If you continue with these articles than I’ll be really grateful to you. Bye! Take care! Love you!

    One of he best articles I’ve ever seen.. The title at it’s best… I put myself in all the situations you had put up… So true.. We often do things that we don’t want… But, mind and heart need to be given importance… It is true that it’s only us who know ourselves to the best.. We put in everything to ourselves and we’re the only ones who know our shades of life… We can only stay happy if we love ourselves and are happy and satisfied with the path we have chosen…

    I loved it.. I just donno what to say… Even if I praise you, it’ll be too less… Please keep posting such articles.. Thank you so much!!

    Love you ??

In today’s world of self-centeredness very few people like u come up and present us with such an article to refine our morals and thus help us to purify our internal filths. THANK U VERY MUCH.
