I have been a non-stop talker. My friends close to me are aware of this. I am working on getting this fixed. I have realized silence and listening to others is more relaxing. It keeps brain saner. Listening to others helps in keeping a check on biases. It powers independent thinking. Let see how many […]
Fighting with barista for making frothy cappuccino is easy. What is difficult: having some empathy. Keeping calm and registering complaint. Our problems are prime and the world or people around us should resonate with it. We have the least clue or concern about others. Why would it matter if my apartments security guard has been […]
Consider yourself blessed because : 1. You can think. 2. You have enough to pay for your food. 3. House for a living. 4. The companion you can trust. 5. Access to the Internet and knowledge to read. Because most of the human population don’t have these.
