15 one-liners that give you hope, when you have lost it all 👇

A thread
1. You are just ONE thought away from a happy mood.
Just one thought.
2. The ones that hurt you the most, don't do it purposefully.

They just don't know better.
3. Even if they do it purposefully, is it worth your happiness to give it up for them?
4. It's okay to move out if your environment is toxic.

However, nothing moves much unless you move out of your own old habits.
5. A happy life is mostly about:
- Sacrificing
- Not craving credit
- Loving yourself as much you expect others to love you
6. What's less spoken of, is that a happy life is also about being okay when nothing is okay.

Give up on ANYTHING but not your happiness.
7. You are just one conversation away from a good mood.

If people cannot give you that, run into books and YouTube videos.
8. Motivation works wonders, for those who take action on it.
9. The world is anyway designed to make you feel inadequate.

Why would you also want to do that to yourself?
10. A gentle reminder whenever you lose hope:
You can do better, because you have done better :)
11. If only you saw yourself through the eyes of others, you will astound yourself.
12. If only you saw others as kids making mistakes, you will astound your empathy levels.
13. Everything will belong to you, once you accept that nothing belongs to you.
14. Keep doing good and keep doing good.

But, do that good to yourself as well.
15. You become a monk not by changing clothes, you become a monk by changing your thoughts.
And now, here is the lie you want me to tell:

Being happy takes efforts.
Getting hopeful takes time.
Loving yourself is a lifelong process.

All of this is a LIE.
The biggest truth is, just like your stomach is full once you eat a meal, your hope and happiness is full, once you fill yourself up.

With the right people
With the right wisdom
With the right YouTube videos
The best moment of your life would be when you accept this biggest truth

Because that will be the day when you will start taking control of your hope.

Nothing, NOTHING is more powerful than this.
And here we come to the beginning of hope, just like at the end of it :)

Here are 9 powers you have, but you are not aware of them👇

A thread
1. Power to be kind

Anyone can be ruthless, rude and mean.
And call it "my nature".

Anyone who steps down from default, rises up to be a human being who cares.
That is kindness. That is superpower.
2. Power to not speak up

Everyone tells you to speak up

I suggest you not speak up.
Because truth, my friend, is rarely spoken through words.

Truth is what speaks up when words don't.
That, is super duper power!

I used to screw myself around seeking validation for years
And ruin my mental health in the process

I don't want you to do the same

Here's my fast tracked road map on less-known ways of taking care of your mental health

A thread
1. Set up a dedicated time to turn off

I will keep repeating this for my entire lifetime.
Because of the incredible advantages "scheduled off" brings.

You will never know how it feels unless you actually feel how it feels
2. Nature walk

Despite scheduled offs, how do we recharge?

Something that I've been doing since 2012 is daily nature walks. 20 minutes in the evening and 1 hour on Sundays.

NOTHING happens there.
And that nothing, changes EVERYTHING!

How to say no

(without sounding rude)

A thread
Hi Nishtha! How are you?

I recently got this text from an ex colleague of a client I was working with.

The client was epic.
However, this partner threw me out of my writing assignment just on call.
Which I made.
After several follow-ups.
I’m usually someone who responds 😊 or 👍 after conversations, however, I didn’t respond to this one.

Because he would again give me good assignment.
And then say no unprofessionally without me being aware of.

Why do you have to screw up with people again and again?

Everyone thinks kindness is easy, but I think kindness is the hardest thing in the world

Here's why

A real-life story thread
When I was 19, I fell in love.
With only one problem:

The guy VANISHED on the next day of making out.
I called, and got lolled.
I tried connecting, all in vain.
I waited for a closure, because I hadn’t still understood that no closure IS a closure.

21 controversial truths about life
A thread

(Might not be what you expected to hear, but maybe what you needed to hear.)
1. Anger doesn’t change ANYTHING
2. Listening helps, when you want to have a conversation.
Listening is the worst thing to do, if it is the gossip that is being shared.
