Starting A New Business? 7 Key Points To Keep In Mind.
I was going to modify my looks and wished to be invisible forever. But now, I see no use for that. From amongst those who knew me, some of them have moved on, while the others knew me through a common acquaintance.
Yes, you have been the inspiration behind this read and a few others, but we need to stop having normal conversations in my mind because nothing is normal now.
I have been advised a lot, you know, to think less and start working on myself. Thanks to you, I’m halfway there and after posting this read, I’ll be one step closer to achieving the perfect salvation.
I spent hours, stalking an account on medium. I fell in love with the author, and left a few messages. There’s slight possibility that he might read those and respond, and hardly any possibility that I might think of him again because my mind is preoccupied; and though I spent hours seeking inspiration from a stranger, my mind came back to one particular thought.
“People will recognize you because of who you are.”
Funny story as it was — I was going to modify my looks and wished to be invisible forever. But now, I see no use for that. From amongst those who knew me, some of them have moved on, while the others knew me through a common acquaintance.
Now, they know me no more, and you will never get to know me.
Coming back to the anonymous account that I had stalked for hours, the first story that I read was adorable, and then the girlfriend died. Now, obviously I had to read the next one to know what had happened.
The next one, and the one after that, got me thinking about whether the women in those stories were real or fictional? It didn’t even matter any more after a few more reads.
We all have women in our lives who are too unfortunate to survive the night.
“The weather here is so nice and cold.”
Because it’s where I was born during spring, and the irony in this fact is that I am allergic to pollen.
Do you remember my picture with swollen eyes? It was a crazy day, and I wouldn’t want to talk about it because then I would have to change the title for the third time to — The Three of You.
You enjoy a read until you realize that it might be a script. Any read can be a script. You can’t tell if the author is telling the truth about his life or just bluffing about what his life could have been if only fate had been a little more kind.
So when the author said that to forget the trauma of his breakup he eventually hit the bar, I thought that his story was real. But then he claimed to have met a woman, who disappeared from the trunk of her own car, and then I realized that his mind was living the dream for eternity.
Speaking of eternity, I know you are afraid of spending an eternity on this planet. But I will, through my stories, and you are welcome to cherish them in your next life. I can’t say for sure that you’ll remember our conversations, or you will see me for who I truly am, but I don’t blame you for leaving.
It was the best decision you have made, according to you.
It is one of the best reads that I have created, according to me.
NOTE: I am speaking of two different people alternatively — one of whom I have known for some time and the other, well, I have known him through words and words only.

If a woman insists on her prospective groom earning enough to keep her comfortable, she is not being “lazy”. She is just being practical, just like men!
When an actress described women as “lazy” because they choose not to have careers and insist on only considering prospective grooms who earn a lot, many jumped to her defence.
Many men (and women) shared stories about how “choosy” women have now become.
One wrote in a now-deleted post that when they were looking for a bride for her brother, the eligible women all laid down impossible conditions – they wanted the groom to be not more than 3 years older than them, to earn at least 50k per month, and to agree to live in an independent flat.
Most of my women clients are caregivers—as mothers, wives and daughters. And so, they tend to feel guilty about their ambitions. Belief in themselves is hard to come by.

“I don’t want to take a pay cut and accept the offer, but everyone around me is advising me to take up what comes my way,” Tanya* told me over the phone while I was returning home from the New Delhi World Book Fair. “Should I take it up?” She summed up her dilemma and paused.
I have been coaching Tanya for the past three months. She wants to change her industry, and we have been working together on a career transition roadmap.
