Rejection hurts – real bad, But why rejection also ROCKS ! Perks of being a “Reject”

Rejections.JPG

Right from being rejected by cab drivers 20 times a row to drive me to my destination to being rejected in the most coveted job interviews and having my affection smashed into a million pieces by the ones I love and adore – you name it, and I have been through it all. Rejection sucks. Point blank. Real bad. It makes us feel unworthy by the object of our extreme desire and when that happens, trust me – it feels terrible and depressing. When we hear cliches like “You’re such a good friend to me, but I’m seeing some one else” or “They wanted someone more experienced for the job” or “Well, that’s a fantastic idea, but…”; all the hopes you held from the future of your dreams, instantly crash down like the stock market crashing after the dot com bubble.

NEVER, Ever Give up on Life & Hope !

sayings-about-life

We all have good days, days when we feel like we are flying in spaceships towards the cosmic joy, we have sad days, days that are just empty & days that seem like the worst has doomed upon us. For someone the “worst” might be a breakup with their lover, a quarrel with their family or beloved friend, failing an exam, not getting the job they dreamed of or a failure or setback which diminished all forms of hope and faith in goodness & the Almighty, a death or a loss that is impossible to recover.

Life is like a bell shaped cyclic curve. At a point in time, things get pretty stagnant and dull. Continue reading

Believe IN Me

Believe Me  . . . NO –  Believe IN Me

Picture1

There are some things in life, which are so much identical, that there is merely a thin line of distinction between them. Yet, I believe, it is this thin line of difference, which makes all the difference.

You meet two kinds of people in life. First are the ones who “Believe You” and second are the ones who “Believe IN You”. The first kind of people are found in abundance like empty oyster shells. They love you and trust you; but again, that comes with a tag with a caution line written in the tiniest font size: “Conditions Apply”. Yes, their trust is conditional and can be shaken or uprooted easily with winds of misunderstanding or miscommunication. They will listen to the world and look for evidence. They will go with the flow and what their eyes see and ears listen about you. When fingers are pointed towards you, they will silently leave your side and join the crowd to accuse you. Yes, they do believe you; but it is only when you give them “explanations” and “evidences”. Continue reading

Has it ever occurred to you that at some point, you are thinking about your parent or a friend far away from you and just at that very moment, you get an unexpected call/message from them ? When you are toiling through the stairs with heavy bags and someone you hardly know, gives you a hand with them ? When you are feeling really low and are greeted with a big smile from a child ? When you are feeling lost and suddenly stumble upon something or someone who gives you a whole new perspective ?
