It’s time to begin a new chapter: Live your dreams, focus on what really matters, and let time heal the scars beneath!
Now, wait, beautiful girl. Look at yourself; you’re a gorgeous mess. Sure, the ending wasn’t the one you ever thought; however, we can blame the films, the fairy tales and the make-believes for giving us hopes and tangling us in a mesh of “happy ever after.”
Don’t bend your head princess, hold it higher.
Let the tears flow, however, don’t let your crown fall. Your fabled story hasn’t come to an end. It has just begun.
In a world where the truth will shatter your biggest dreams, take this as a wake-up call. A wake-up call that you’re much better than what you are now, that you deserve someone much better and now is a perfect time, my dear. You need to believe that you are worthy of much better.
Forget the guy who never appreciated your efforts and undermined your presence. Trust me, it’s his loss, and someday he’ll realize what he lost, but it will be too late then, and all he will have been his tears to quench his regrets.
Listen carefully now, my dear. To believe you should have better, you must ensure that the next man who’ll step into your life is worthy of you. It is about understanding yourself – Who you are, what you can do, and just how much you can invest.
Reflect on your previous mistakes calmly, and don’t be harsh on yourself. Gain wisdom from the process and fix the scattered pieces.
Live your dreams, do not forget what you really desire, focus on what really matters, and let time heal the scars beneath. All I can say is that time never fails to heal. Don’t rush it, girl, you have got this.
It is you and only you who innately understands what you should have. And I am certain that once you have understood your self-worth, you won’t even try to settle for less like you did before.
Believe me, he’s unworthy of your tears, your heart and the 2 a.m. thoughts.
So, brush off the past, pick yourself up and believe me, the right person will come along and prove to you why he not only deserves a place in your palace but also deserves to be the title of your new chapter.

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.
As long as teachers are competent in their job, and adhere to the workplace code of conduct, how does it matter what they do in their personal lives?
A 30 year old Associate Professor at a well-known University, according to an FIR filed by her, was forced to resign because the father of one of her students complained that he found his son looking at photographs of her, which according to him were “objectionable” and “bordering on nudity”.
There are two aspects to this case, which are equally disturbing, and which together make me question where we are heading as a society.
When the father of an 18 year old finds his son looking at photographs of a lady in a swimsuit, he can do many things. What this parent allegedly did was to dash off a letter to the University which states:
