Here is list of the best quotes that will definitely make your day. Have a look ;

“Eleven Hints for Life”

1. It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return.
But what is more painful is to love someone and never
find the courage to let that person know how you feel.

2. A sad thing in life is when you meet someone who
means a lot to you, only to find out in the end that it was
never meant to be and you just have to let go.

3. The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a
porch swing with, never say a word, and then walk away
feeling like it was the best conversation you’ve ever had.

4. It’s true that we don’t know what we’ve got until we lose
it, but it’s also true that we don’t know what we’ve been
missing until it arrives.

5. It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an
hour to like someone, and a day to love someone-but it
takes a lifetime to forget someone.

6. Don’t go for looks, they can deceive. Don’t go for wealth,
even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you
smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day
seem bright.

7. Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go,
be what you want to be. Because you have only one life and
one chance to do all the things you want to do.

8. Always put yourself in the other’s shoes. If you feel that it
hurts you, it probably hurts the person too.

9. A careless word may kindle strife. A cruel word may wreck
a life. A timely word may level stress. But a loving word may
heal and bless.

10. The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best
of everything they just make the most of everything that comes
along their way.

11. Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, ends with
a tear. When you were born, you were crying and everyone
around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die,
you’re the one smiling and everyone around you is crying.

Accepting People For What They Are !

The world wide web has made this huge world something even smaller than a village, but in reality if we see people have started to drift away from each other. Nowadays people don’t have qualities, they are classified by TYPES and we are the proud founders of that. We don’t interact with people who are not in our comfort zone ( well I  am still looking for someone to perfectly justify their comfort zone). So what has changed over the years ? People ? We ? Something else ? Let me try to throw some light on this :

Human brain , the smartest of all i guess is a very good player in a very weird way. It always tends you to do things that you’re not supposed to. The worst thing about our brains ( according to me ) is that it is a very lazy and sluggish chap. Being the smartest , It performs every function efficiently but when it comes on moving out of the comfort zone, it will try it’s best not to. And this is how, we people have a very good habit of seeing people with a view that we have accomplished not what they actually are.

The worst thing in life what we do is , we define certain parameters for a set of things or qualities that are to be found in a person or something else. Partially , I agree that this helps to have a certainty of what you come across in daily life. But thinking it in a way that, expecting something from a person who can’t deliver us the required material, makes him useless. Is it fair enough ? I beg to differ in this.

I totally agree that, we have the right to choose everything in our lives, but even after choosing them, we cant start accepting someone to do or become something he’s not. That will only crush the person and nothing else. So why not accept someone for what they are ! We should, that comes with many advantages. First of all, it will boost the confidence of the person to such a level, even one day you will be proud of that. Secondly, it would make life much more easier in every aspect.

Finally, I would like to say that in my life I have always accepted people for what they are not for what i think they should be. It has always given me a chance to know them in a better way and have always helped me to strengthen our relationship. The best thing is that, it makes us versatile by developing in such a way that one day you would realize that there’s nothing such as a comfort zone in your life, because everyone out there has something to show to you & to give to you.

PS : Give everyone in your life to open themselves up , to show what they are and what they mean. I assure it definitely will help. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by and reading this. Keep smiling and have a wonderful life my friend.  🙂

Friendship : Decoded !

Recently International Friendship Day (Observed on First Sunday of August) went by. It meant celebration of FRIENDSHIP! This made me wonder- what friendship actually is ?

Giving my second thought to the question and stressing over a couple of days, here i am with my second post.

FRIEND or FRIENDSHIP, these words aren’t new to anyone of us. Right? But does its meaning remain same for all of us ? I sincerely doubt !

The moment a child steps out of the house for the very first time entering school, he/she starts to socialize, and make friends. How simple life was when we were kids! Anyone we talked to instantly became our friend with no hidden hard feelings.When sitting together in the class or playing all together made the best buddies, a thread meant the symbol of friendship.I wish the things were same now.

As we grow up, friends get categorized: friends, acquaintances, classmates, hostel mates, college friends, coaching friends, friends of same group, close friends, best friends and the list is long! One or two of the lucky ones would get the honorable tag of being the best friends! Silly but true isn’t it? The amount of sharing depends on the category we fall in & the level of friendship shared with them.

Well, that perfectly marked the difference from what childhood friendship was sharing everything equally with everyone. No ifs and buts! But the scene changes as we mature. Words are chosen with respect to the listener not the speaker.

Then the next question comes to my mind that- how do i justify friendship in the present scenario?

Everyone says that best friend knows it all. I ask you, is it really true? Aren’t there still some things deep in your heart that even your best friend doesn’t have a clue about? Whatever be your answer, yes or no. It did make you think for a while. Didn’t it?

But why do we divide the categories? Sharing a bit here and a bit there because we are scared of putting all the eggs in the same basket?? Is it the insecurity of being judged or the presumptions that the person won’t just understand? Or there isn’t enough trust in the person/ friendship? Or the fear that the secret we hold so deep in our heart will not be a secret anymore?
Sometimes these questions really freaks me out and make me think more. You never know, even the best relationship in the world can give a hard time to your neurons. 

What is the reason, I wonder! Why can’t we treat every friend equal? I understand the fact that everything can’t be told to every single person whom we call our friend (with ever increasing friend list on social media) but what about inner circle of friends we have? Do we share everything with them? I am sure the answer will be NO!

Few of my friends gave an explanation saying– ‘ In today’s world, people don’t have time !’ Really? I bet, if i  get that busy someday, i would definitely not survive for more than a couple of days. No one in this world expects you to give a knock on their door everyday or chitchat on a daily basis. But doing it even once a week, would give them immense happiness and bring a smile on their face. And that didn’t include whatsapp or messaging, but according to the tech savvy genX, even that would work i guess. Will it?

So eventually, with so many friends around, we end up being alone with the company of those unspoken thoughts circling our mind constantly waiting to be heard.
So, is this friendship is all about?? May be!

I never thought of decoding a perfect definition of a friend or for that matter friendship. But to take a second thought of what friendship in particular means for us. Everyone will have their own version of friendship,and its very justified, but what are we doing to keep its spirit alive? Being in tough with your friends will obviously make you a more happier person, someone will always be there to hold your hand walk along with you. 

Whatever we might go through or whatever we might/might not hide, we still need friends and for them we will always be ready to do anything because although we don’t share ourselves wholly, we do share a part of us with each one of them differently!

So fellas, stay connected to your pals ! If possible ring them, message them and talk your heart out. Maybe the person would have been waiting to hear from you, so when you cross each other someday, a smile would fill in the gap instead of weird awkwardness.

Stay Happy and Stay Blessed ! 

Do share what you think about friendship? 🙂
