The biggest flex of life is when you get to know your habits, nature, activities, what makes you happy and sad. If you want to set some boundaries do it for yourself, never live your life just to impress your parents or folks.
You have one life and you need to balance it in a feasible way. Keep your tradition, culture and basic principles of life within your day-to-day lifestyle but be as modern as world gets.
You know what, no matter how good you behave to people’ they will treat you as per their interests, never let anyone treat you as per his will, you have your own life and your own worth.
Try to keep yourself as happy as you can, never let anyone harm or damage your mental peace, if you find someone as a toxic person just leave that company at first place but never ever adjust and compromise your worth at unnecessary places.
People don’t deserve a second chance I guess they don’t even deserve a first chance to be that close so that, they can damage your nerves in the end. You can be the better amigo of yourself, because people can listen to you all the day or every weekend but it is barely possible they can understand your situation or pain.
There is always categories of people some are bad, some are good, and some are evil creatures. You have to decide who you allow to enter in your life but yes some things are meant to cross our path where we can’t resist them to enter. Despite of this you can decide who to keep and who to get rid off, life is beautiful journey if you really know how to deal with it.
You should always be prepared to let go everything in a life once a while because this world itself is temporary so how can you expect the bonds we create or made is permanent? it is hard to let anything go from your life but it is life and it cannot show mercy to anyone.
It is impossible to live without people in order to survive we have to interact because we live in a society right? Who made rules of life? Who taught you what is wrong and right?
It is always your soul who can guide you, it is your connection with God who enlightens you. Evil is always there in the form of anything but I believe one needs to stay connected with spirituality so that evil creatures won’t be able to harm you, one should always be aware of manipulative people because they’re most dangerous than satan.
Satan has one purpose to distract you from good path but manipulative people are more dangerous you never know, when they’re your supporters or your worst enemies. Be very selective while choosing friends set boundaries, never share your secrets at first place, be very observant when they’re being friendly to you, watch their actions and words and analysis their situation.
That is the only key to stay safe from unwanted mental trauma and emotional damage.
