This may appear subjective, but it is real. If you want to know which thoughts are hidden inside of you, you may just start painting anything that comes to your mind.
You will see your hidden thoughts coming up one after the other.
If you have read some works of Freud and the human mind, then you must know our thoughts come from a very far and dark place. It takes strength to uncover them.
Though speech may reveal some aspects of it, other cannot be expressed and remain absolutely unknown to human-beings. Even though those thoughts may be bothering them or affecting their behaviour in some way.
This may appear subjective, but it is real. If you want to know which thoughts are hidden inside of you, you may just start painting anything that comes to your mind. You will see your hidden thoughts coming up one after the other.
And as they start coming out, keep painting, for it will help you liberate yourself from harmful hidden thoughts and get back to a much happier mood.
In these tough times, when everything becomes difficult, try painting. Not only will it lighten your mind, but it will spark a light in yourself and help you find a way where all seems to be dark.
As an art, painting infuses light into your mind. It enlivens the corners of your mind by putting asweet pressure on them. During that pleasant exercise, your brain sweats happily, thereby relieving your consciousness from disturbing thoughts and mental stress.
When I need calmness, I paint a serene landscape. When I need joy, I paint colourful flowers.
If you need to develop your focus in life, do still life artworks. If you want your home to be a happy place to live in, just paint that.
In times of gloominess, never paint your feelings. Make a conscious effort to paint the best things in life.

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.
