Importance of Positive Affirmations

Positive Affirmations. Most of us must have come across this term especially after what the world is going through right now. So just for starters, positive affirmations are positive phrases or sentences about one to keep the negative thoughts and stressful thoughts at bay. Those statements are not something that you just tell yourself, but you have to believe in them as well.

Positive affirmations are not some magic, but a practice that we can develop to reap the multiple benefits they have to offer. Positive affirmations help us to become more resilient towards the difficult situations which everyone faces in their lives at some or the other point.

These are the few benefits which have been experienced by people who have cultivated this habit of positive affirmations in their daily lives. Initially it can seem awkward to talk to ourselves out loud in such a manner, but when we say it out loud in our own voice, there is a higher chance of our brain registering it as an important event, which eventually will make it easier to believe in what we say.

A Heartfelt Post

I have been thinking about writing something since so many days now!
Could not gather myself up and start typing though!

But today something happened and it shook me beyond measure; like a gate was opened inside of me which held so many emotions.

I read before a while about the passing away of Sushant Singh Rajput.
Now, even though he wasn’t one of my favourite actors or anything but still the news was way too shocking for me and I was stunned, speechless and heartbroken!
If the reports are to be believed then he was passing through a very rough mental health phase.

This entire corona situation has been tough on everyone. It does not matter which class you belong to, who you are, it has affected everyone, may be not equally but substantially for sure. The pandemic has been very cruel to a majority of the people.
A lot of people have lost their homes, jobs, many do not have even food on their tables. The problems are numerous.
A lot of them have home quarantined alone with no emotional support system. The loneliness is killing in such circumstances.
Now, the physical health is affected in these times if you are affected by the virus but the mental health is affected even if you are not a Corona virus patient.

Most of us have become irritable and we are ready to tear each other up; all we need is one little push and boom – we will explode like a volcano.
Even though we laugh these incidents off by making a lot of memes but the sad truth is that we need each other more than ever.

Mental health is a very under addressed issue world-wide and all the more in India.
There is a certain stigma attached to the word – ‘mental health’. It does not mean you are a mad or a crazy person.
People are ashamed to talk about it and this needs to change.
Agreed that things are changing but way too slowly than it is needed.

This competitive world around us, a constant need to prove one’ self, a constant race that the humans have started themselves, has finally taken a toll. We really need to slow down in life.
It is not a mad rat race – this life! It is precious and we need to treat it that way.
There is so much more to life than meets the eye, than what we have made up of it.

The empathy, sympathy, compassion, kindness have become mere words in the dictionary!
I wonder if the next generation would even know what these words mean in real life or if they will have to google it to know their meanings!

It is not easy to live under constant pressure and stress with the utmost need to prove one’s worth to the world!
But what is this world, really? And who are we proving ourselves to?

With the entire world becoming easily accessible with the internet and social media, the real connect to people is lost.
In the excitement of reaching all the people of the world, we have forgotten the joy of being with the ones who are around us every single day.
Depression, anxiety, sadness, fatigue – all these have become like chronic diseases of our lives and we fail to acknowledge them.
Does being in denial of them actually help?
No.
Acceptance is the key, my lovelies! 💗

It is nothing to be ashamed of. No one will belittle you, and if someone does that, you know that those toxic people should have no place in your little world.
Pick that phone up and call your family, talk to them about it.
Please understand you are not bugging them by doing this. They are your people and they will love nothing more than you trusting them with your problems and struggles of life.
A lot of us are blessed with a great set of family and friends. If you are one of them then make the most of it!
Agreed, that there will be a lot of difference of opinions and squabbles with the closest ones of our lives but when push comes to shove, they will be the ones having our backs always and forever!

I am writing this, hoping it will reach at least one soul who needs to read it and if I am able to help even 10% in the process of healing them, then it is completely worth it!

Be kind, no matter what! Just, be kind.

Much love always,
The k syndrome
