Do yourself a favor, save your energy, embrace the unknown and just walk away.
Walking away !!!
I have done that a lot… I have walked away from the people who have treated me badly, walked away from relationships where there was no warmth, walked away from the one/ones who put me down, walked away from people who refuse to see my worth, who were judgmental, walked away from conversations which were dis-respectful and criticizing, walked away from manipulative thoughts, walked away from negative thoughts and most importantly negative people.
Walking away, has done tremendous good to me. You may always say that those who can’t accept, compromise, handle or those who don’t value relationships can walk away easily.
Trust me, it has never been easy. But it gives you peace, you will be in peace with yourself. There won’t be thousand battles fought together in your head. You will understand that enough is enough.
It may not make you happy during the initial hours, days or at times even months, but in long run, you will take pride in your decision. You would pat your back and say, ‘I was brave enough then, so I am happier now’ .
One thing is for sure, at the end of the day what does not kill you only makes you stronger.
Do yourself a favor, save your energy, embrace the unknown and just walk away. Letting go of comparing, competing, judgement, blame and worrying will get you to the desired zen state.
Your self-care comes first;
Your self-esteem comes first;
Your self-affirmation comes first …

Shows like Indian Matchmaking only further the argument that women must adhere to social norms without being allowed to follow their hearts.
When Netflix announced that Indian Matchmaking (2020-present) would be renewed for a second season, many of us hoped for the makers of the show to take all the criticism they faced seriously. That is definitely not the case because the show still continues to celebrate regressive patriarchal values.
Here are a few of the gendered notions that the show propagates.
A mediocre man can give himself a 9.5/10 and call himself ‘the world’s most eligible bachelor’, but an independent and successful woman must be happy with receiving just 60-70% of what she feels she deserves.
You do not have to be perfect. There’s no perfect daughter, perfect employee, perfect wife, or perfect mother. These are just labels created by society, for their convenience.
So here you are, just out of engineering college, having no clue why you pursued Electronics Engineering. Yes, I know, like many others your age, you too were persuaded by your parents to opt for engineering because it supposedly gets you a lucrative job.
Believe me, however strange this might sound, you’ll soon come to realize that a high paying job need not always make you happy. And there are a myriad courses and career options out there, you should definitely consider something that’ll make you look forward to go to work every day.
