Pain of Regret or Pain of Discipline?

When you first start out on a journey to accomplish something, the biggest success factor is to be persistence at it. Persistence is difficult. It's easier to carry out your tasks in the initial stage because you are motivated. Persistence comes easy during that time. But when things start to get redundant, your motivation fades away,…

Learning to Not Regret

We usually end up in situation where every possible path we can take leads to regret. Whatever you do, you'll regret at the end just to realize if taking the other path would lead somewhere better. There are two things that can happen when you choose a road: Either you'll regret, or you wont. And…

Let Your Emotions Flow

I tried to stop feeling emotions which were regarded as weakness. When you part ways with someone you've been too close to, you feel sad. The natural inclination would be to cry.

To create or bend a situation in my favor, I used to lie to people most of the time. The situation would then favor me in the short run, but I'd have to suffer in the long run. If you lie once, you'll need to remember the lie every time. Not only the lie, but…

Decluttering and Letting Go

Right now, this very moment, I'm just writing and letting my thoughts flow. This usually doesn't happen. I always think of various other stuff I should be working on while performing a particular task.
