Tired? Frustrated? Thinking of giving up? Don’t you dare to!

You might not be enjoying your life at this moment. Things might seem screwed up beyond repair. You might feel dejected as you have no clue where your life’s headed. You might also have started hating your own self of late.

Are you over-reacting to things? No, definitely not. Everyone wants to be happy. You won’t find even a single person who doesn’t want to be happy. Being unhappy is not the most pleasant of feelings. So, don’t be so hard on yourself for feeling the way you are doing. You are already in trouble. Please don’t add to it by blaming yourself.

So, what should you do? Give up? Because that’s what people do when things don’t go as per plan? No, not in a million years!

Rather, you should wait. Yes, you read it correctly. You should wait. This might seem like the most stupid advice that someone has given to you. But just hold on for some time.

Cycles – A law of nature
Do you know how the concept of time came into place? We can measure time only because of the cyclical nature of the universe. When earth rotates once about its own axis, we call it a day. When it revolves around the sun once, we call it a year. And this happens over and over again. That is what I mean when I say cycles.

If you pay enough attention, you will realize that everything around us works in cycles. So, what does it have to do with you not giving up?


You shouldn’t be giving up now because this cycle of bad things will soon come to an end. And a new cycle will begin — a cycle where you have more than enough opportunities to thrive. You will be so happy that you won’t believe it. Trust me! It will happen. It is bound to happen, provided you stay in the game for long enough.

Be it good or be it bad, everything will pass. That is the law of nature. And it is going to happen. You can’t work around it. You should work with it. You should learn to embrace it.

Enjoy each season. Make the most of every opportunity that you get. Be flexible enough to adjust. Learn from the farmer. He adjusts to the seasons. He sows the seeds in one season and reaps the produce in the other. It is that simple. Identify the season you are in and act accordingly.

Don’t you dare to give up!

      I am glad to know that you are waiting. But it’s overwhelming as well. I hope I will be able to justify your wait πŸ˜‰

      For the next post, I am thinking of doing something around feminism.
      It should be published in a couple of days. I will surely let you know when it’s out.
      Thanks again!
