She stopped making herself uncomfortable just to please others and make them comfortable. She became the reason, for her happiness!

In response to Akankshaโ€™s Twenty-Word Tuesday: Week 14 prompt; self love.

My story here. I used to find it difficult to differentiate what is pride, selfishness and what is self care, self-love. I used to end up being hurt and disturbed, just to make others happy and comfortable!

It was just not worth it! โ€œI am my priority! My happiness is my essentials! My peace of mind is most important to meโ€ Getting this clear in my head, set so many things right for me and for others around me ๐Ÿ˜Š

Thanks for reading. I love feedback

    1. It was very difficult for me Usha. Iโ€™m known to be a โ€˜people pleaserโ€™. Itโ€™s not always a compliment!
      Iโ€™m trying to implement it now and Iโ€™m still getting there. ๐Ÿ˜Š


    1. I thought of you when I typed this Anisha, honestlyโฃ๏ธIโ€™m gleeing here, seeing your comment.
      The next few weeks after our discussion then, watching some video on you tube, something changed within ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜ฌ

    1. I find many similarities in our thoughts and responses, Rashmi. Like, among common friends, I would have the same reaction to the post and I see you too would have typed the same ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
      Somewhere I think shades of our personality match.

      Please share them! More than glad to read and learn from themโฃ๏ธ


      1. Hey there, high five. I too feel it a lot of times. You know in fact when I read your comments on our mutual friends posts, I am always like how does she always speak my mind.
        It often happens on Bharath’s post, it is always fun reading your conversation with him. And how you call him king, I too address him that way. Same to same. Haha!
        I always search for your comments on our friends comment section ๐Ÿ™ˆ

        Are you a scorpion?
        We have a lot in common seriously.

      2. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒIโ€™m smiling here reading that you feel the same. About searching comments, I do that too, sometimes ๐Ÿ˜

        No Iโ€™m an Aries .. but got lots of scopy friends. My hubby too. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ so your bday over or yet to come ..


      3. You gotta wish me on my b-day. I am not taking any advance wishes. I just talked to Bharath on his post and told him he has to bring all my favorite bloggers in my city to celebrate my b’day.


      4. ๐Ÿ˜€you are as clumsy as me too I guess ๐Ÿ˜…mixing up comments ๐Ÿ˜‚
        you know 13 years ago on oct 31 to nov 10 I was touring Rajasthan .. was in mount Abu on 9th I guess… how wonderful it would be if we knew we exist and we could meet ๐Ÿ˜Šโค๏ธ
        but then our age gap comes into picture and I guess our meet would be very different ๐Ÿ˜ƒ


      5. You know I too pictured that as far as age is concerned.
        But guess what, I feel we are so alike, age won’t be an issue.
        I respect your privacy so much, but sometimes I really feel I would ask for your mail and we would connect there. I honestly honestly picture you as my version. I would so love to speak to you once.

        You come back to Rajasthan, come to Jodhpur then. We’ll meet.

      6. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ‘I feel so too. I do check often. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ˜Šprivacy with my name is more so because I dont want google to lead people here ๐Ÿ˜Š

        Rajasthan is so wonderful.. Jodhpur is the blue city right? I clearly remember the view from the top of a fort… beautiful..
        Iโ€™ve shopped like crazy when I visited Rajasthan. Dresses earrings home decors what not. Many earrings I still use. Loved that trip. Hopefully sometime soon.. I wish to visit the place again. โฃ๏ธ


  1. That hit a nerve with me, HS, I can relate so much and know what torture it is. Sacrificing my own little comforts for others is not always gallant, I learned this quite late and the hard way too but it is worth it. Absolutely marvelous take, HS!
