Life lessons #3

This is one of my most favourite quote of all times. “I don’t know the secret to success, but the secret to failure is trying to please everyone” – Bill Cosby.

You shouldn’t waste your time on making everyone happy. There will not be everyone to agree with you or even like you at times, and it is perfectly okay. It’s human nature to have the feeling of belonging, to be liked, respected and valued, but certainly not at the expense of your integrity and happiness. Other people cannot surely give you the validation you seek. That has to come from inside. You will have to trust your instinct. Speak up, stick to your guns, assert yourself when you need to, demand respect and stay true to your values. Life is simple. We complicate it.

Shades Of Life 


When I am not busy scribbling and sketching away on little pieces on paper, I am found cozying on my recliner enjoying movies and cartoons. A dreamer and an artist, I am in love with all things beautiful. Prefer Bukowski and Gulzar over Shakespeare and Tagore. And nights over daytime. Anti-social and friendly in the same breath. Desperately trying to bring being nice in vogue. This blog is an itinerary of a girl amidst the cacophony of metropolitan life facing the struggles & unexpected surprises that life offers.

  1. I would say at times situations makes us complicate life. One lesson from the life book that I have learnt is letting go in turns brings happiness in return. I also strongly believe there is nothing more than self respect. The day that is compromised, we would be the first one to stab our own soul.

    1. As far as the second part of your comment is concerned, about self respect, I second you totally. But regarding the first part of letting go, I am not pretty much sure about it. May be sometimes that is the only option that is left, some other times may be the entire process needs some more effort rather than letting go.
