Bad to be good?

Be yourself! True that it is really challenging to remain the way you are in this world!! They constantly try to make you someone else. The aura of good people boost our spirit, spreading positivity around. They extend the rays of hope and colours. Being good doesn’t seem good always. Many a times it takes you to the other end of the spectrum presenting self hurt and not being helpful in any ways. Human mind plays the worst at times, tussle between positive thought and negative thought go on. And we will be too perplexed to take a stand!

I find chief solace in helping people,    even when it’s probably not the wisest choice. I get immense pleasure when I offer an aid to the needy. Commonly, I try my best to support and be with them in their needy hours. Whatever I have confronted with, made me retrospect myself.

When you be a little too nice, people try to walk over you. When much importance is given to others, they consider you a pushover. They would expect the royal treatment by all means. That taught me it’s perfectly alright to say ‘no’ when you feel inundated. Always stand your grounds; none other wil do it for you. Being amiable, people tend to take advantage of the liberty given in the relationship. They won’t emanate the same level of kindness and empathy towards you and it will leave you disappointed.

Being endlessly selfless may pave way for others to take you for granted. Staying humble and gentle is considered a sign of weakness. There I learnt, be prudent enough not to outdo yourself. You may end up in a situation where you have no time for yourself. That would again make it worse! So make sure you draw your boundaries, voice out for yourself! You have all the emotions like the other person, you are a human being too! So talk about it without sounding accusing. If things are left unsaid, it creates a crack in the relationship foundation leading to the collapse of years old relation. Keeping away from those who drag you to constant bickering and negativity would ease your life so much.

No one bats an eye unless you shout for yourself. We are put up in a selfish competitive world. It is perfectly alright to let them know, if they don’t take in on their own; cos you are as awesome as the other person! Never ever compromise your self respect. We offer help out of compassion, and not expecting them to reciprocate later. Life taught me many times that we attract a mistake to learn something. That’s  alright, move on with the positive take aways from it.

Yes, its too exhaustive to be an empath! Being profoundly compassionate, we try to make others feel at ease in toughest hours. But at times people may irk you deeply and you wish to corner yourself not socialising. That ain’t the thing! The way out is expressing yourself, letting them know how they made you feel and when you rise up against, undoubtedly they will lean over. That is the least you can do for yourself.

Be proud of yourself, you well-liked personality! But ensure a ticker for yourself. There’s so much of positivity around you. Always be strong for yourself! Be assertive wherever you need to! Be optimistic and scout around for the magic….like a beautiful butterfly which crossed so many phases of its life to attain its final awesomeness!!
