The Power of a Bad Experience 

Bob Packwood once said, ” Judgement comes from experience and great judgment comes from bad experience”

Have you ever made a best friend who betrayed you? Or loved someone so bad but he cheated you? These situations make you feel mentally drenched and low spirited. You hesitate in making love with someone else again or trusting someone anew to share your deepest secrets. These traumatic experiences create a very profound impact on one’s soul and makes him feel very hostile towards the world. 

But, should that be a conclusion to this problem? Do you really deserve to hurt your precious self because of one unfortunate trip? I have seen people falling into the pit of depression, losing their family and friends, deviating from their work as a consequence of being cheated by that one person! 

Everyone should taste a sour mango to realize the contentment of eating a sweet mango. Likewise, everyone should once have a bad experience to appreciate the worth of a good one. We often hear lovers promising to fetch moon and stars for their partners, crossing all the boundaries for them. But what happens after they break up? Why don’t they make this herculean effort for themselves after break up? It’s because they become so blind loving their partner that they forget the momentousness of ‘self love’. 

It is more important to love yourself first than to look for a lover and compensate for the self love crunch. One should realize the significance of self love. It is just a spark which needs to be lighted up and you can break all the boundaries and achieve new targets. Once you feel that spark, nobody can stop you from transforming yourself into a better person and leading a happier life.  Break records, not while being in love but after being heartbroken! 

Writing Under Construction.. 

So finally the day has arrived. I have published my first ever blog and I want to share with you all how nervous as well as excited I’m to begin with this new journey. I’ve no idea what I’m going to write next, will it even make any sense or not, but one thing I know is that I’m just going to pour my heart out in it. I’ve always had a thing for writing, be it articles, poems or stories. But somehow I lacked that confidence to show it even to my closest friend. In a world full of haters and criticisers, publicizing my expressions and perspectives gives me a sense of fear. It always terrifies  me how people will react to  it,will they even read it, or what if they secretly laught at me….

All these inimical thoughts discouraged me to start my blog. One day while I was staring the wall in front of me, thinking hard about my career, my ‘ambition’, my love for creative writing, my willingness to get my words published, I figured out that such petty reasons have been breaking me off from pursuing my dreams. So I finally mustered courage, took a pen and diary, and made my mind to start a blog, without thinking about the outcome! 

But again, so many questions popped up into my mind. How will my blog turn out? Will I get any appreciation for it? And most importantly, would all this hard work be even worth it? 

While there were plenty of factors that pulled me backwards, there were few but credible ones that pushed me in this beautiful world of words and expressions. 

When you get such crazy amount of motivation from your family and friends, when you get the right kind of guidance from right people and when you feel that magnetism towards your passion and dream, you finally feel like ‘there’s no looking back now‘!! 

I know I must have made mistakes here, but well, who doesn’t? I know I need a lot of improvement and practice, but, now that I’ve an urge and desire to work on my goals and not stop trying ever, I’ll make sure I get better and better with every performance.
