Have you reached a stage in your life where even though you’re successful you still feel a bit disconnected with yourself? Here's the answer!
Have you reached a stage in your life where even though you’re successful you still feel a bit disconnected with yourself? Here’s the answer!
A part of you still longs to know about yourself.
A bit more? A lot more? Are you in a relationship where, you are lost, maybe a bit unhappy? It’s never about you because you don’t know what you like or dislike?
Do you want to be successful and influential but land up being influenced and led by someone successful?
Do you know why this happens? Why are you so lost? Why are you so alone? Why are you following and not leading? One of the basic and simple reason is because, you don’t like yourself enough for someone else to like you, you aren’t impressed with yourself for someone else to be impressed with you. You are relying on someone else to give you a shout out to remind you how good enough you truly are. You wear blinders when it comes to you and naturally cannot see your worth where it matters the most.
You don’t know yourself, you’re influenced by others and try to copy them instead of figuring out on your own. Yes! That’s it! That is all you need to survive, achieve, excel, live and might I add – Conquer! You need to go on a date with yourself!
WHAT? A DATE? WHAT GOOD WILL THAT DO?
“Alone time is when I distance myself from the voices of the world so I can hear my own.” — Oprah Winfrey
If you’re new to this concept or feel as if you’re the only weirdo out there who is going to do this, let me tell you, going on solo dates is quite trendy, especially if you want to take a break from the old ball and chain (work, relationship, marriage, responsibility, the whole shebang).
Why not go on a date with yourself to meet a whole new you? Ask yourself questions you might have never asked yourself before. Have a good time with yourself and evaluate whether you’re good enough to be in a relationship or be friends with. A lot of articles have been written about going on dates with yourself. A lot of them approve of this concept and have quoted that their lives have changed forever.
It is also a wonderful way to get some self-awareness and clarity about your life, your choices and preferences. What better way to know yourself better that showing yourself a good time, eh?
Isn’t it awkward and utter depressing to go on a solo date? – Not at all!
Quite honestly, it is doing something out of the ordinary which makes the whole process really classy.

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Are we so swayed by star power and the 'entertainment' quotient of cinema that satisfies our carnal instincts that we choose to ignore our own subconscious mind which always knows what is right and what is wrong?
Trigger Warning: This has graphic descriptions of violence and may be triggering to survivors and victims of violence.
Do you remember your first exposure to an extremely violent act or the aftermath of a violent act?
I am pretty sure for most of us it would be through cinema. But I remember very vividly my first exposure to aftermath of an unbelievably grotesque violent act in real life. It was as a student at a Dental College and Hospital.
