I DON’T HATE MY COUNTRY

Please stop circulating this false belief and stop hating ‘people like me.’

My ‘political enthusiast’ buddy casually asked me, “Which wing do you support, the left-wing or the right one?” This was probably the hundredth time he asked me this question.

I replied, “Neither of them.”

Ugh.

He was tired of the answer I gave him every time. He wanted me to choose a wing, either the left or the right one.

I am sure he has this opinion in his head that I hate my country (as he used to sarcastically remark). I don’t care about the shit happening here and don’t even hold an opinion. I also ‘criticize’ my country…


SERIOUS HUMOR

Please save me — I will die because of the app you have created

Dear Zoom Headquarters,

As you and I know, We all have been introduced to the concept of Virtual Meetings in the Pandemic Period.

From the morning to the evening, all I have been doing since March 2020 is attending Zoom meetings. All this crazy stuff such as Webinars, Meets, Calls, Programmes, and Lectures has been eating my brain.

Don’t judge me. I am (normally) a focused person with a great attention span. I hear what the other person has to say, speak slowly always smiling, and being concentrated at all times. These are one of my not-so-unique but good qualities…


VOICES OF WOMEN

It isn’t easy to be a woman, but I love being one and will always do.

I have always been discriminated,

and have been infused with pain.

I have struggled as a girl,

to live in this monstrous world.

I have been called a bitch,

for not following society’s rules.

I have had painful periods,

that people see with disgust.

I have been seen as an object,

and have been consider not worth anything.

I’ve been told to stay at home and cook,

not change the world for the good.

I have been taught to be always scared,

for the fear of being assaulted.

I have been seen as a toy,

to be played with by…


POETRY ON DEPRESSION

How did I lose all my tears and fears?

Photo by Kat J on Unsplash

Things had gotten so wrong,
I wasn’t born strong,
to handle them at all.

I had lost all the courage,
Had made many mistakes.

I really wanted to smile,
But all I could do is sigh.

My brain had stopped working,
Everything was badly hurting me.

All I wanted to have is peace,
All I could hear was painful noises.

I was trying to try,
But I ended up crying.

I was trying to fight my fears,
But they didn’t disappear.

I was dying for a better life,
when living it will be worth it.

Life was worse than hell…


GET SMARTER IN BUILDING YOUR THING

Highly efficacious tips about business from Robin Sharma

More than starting a business, taking care of it is challenging. Not everybody can manage a business; it requires passion, hard work, perseverance, and lots of learning (not degrees), and it takes a long term to succeed. You have to physically, mentally, and emotionally dedicate yourself to your thing. Business is not a 9–5 job, it is dedicating your life to it.

According to data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, about 20% of the US small businesses fail within the first year. By the end of their fifth year, roughly 50% have gone. …


CONFESSIONS

I know I am a mess, and I have to clean it because nobody else can.

Dear Anna’s Diary,

I need to turn over a new leaf. I cannot stay the way I am.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not insecure about being perfect (the way society expects me to be); I just want to be a better version of myself.

Not just professionally (academically), but also as a person.

In the past, I have committed many mistakes and will probably make more in the future. Chosen paths that led me the wrong way. Thought about the past and the future, but not the present. Procrastinated. …

Within my three months blogging journey, I have realized that being a successful blogger is challenging. The ironic notion about blogging is that blogging is not just blogging. It is much more than that.

There are many things you need to know and research about — Search Engine Optimization (SEO) tools, Headlines, and Capitalization, Collaboration with fellow writers and publications, Designing, Editing,… (The list is huge).

Blogging is easy, but prospering in blogging isn’t. Being a successful writer is challenging because the competition is tough. There are millions of people who can write those How-To, Key-to, Tips-and-Tricks articles. …


Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.

I’m so happy about everything,

And I’m sad about nothing.

I feel grateful and lucky,

And everything seems to be happy.

Today is such a beautiful day,

And things are going in the right way.

I have been in the world for a long time,

Seen the good, and seen the crime.

I have made so many friends,

And I have so many gems.

I have committed big mistakes,

but I have learned some lessons.

I have taken life for granted,

But now I’m no more distracted.

Things were bad,

But I have made them good.

Life was sad,

But…


Do you write in British English, US English, or Australian English?

Photo by Brooke Cagle on Unsplash

If I ask you what kind of accent do you have, you could reply in hardly 10 seconds. I have a heavy Indian English accent. You may have a German, French, Arabic, American, Italian, Mexican, Australian, Irish, or any other accent. It can even be mixed (two or more accents).

While writing, which English variant do you use? Do you use American English, British English, Canadian English, Indian English, or Australian English? I use American or US English. Which one do you use? Are you unable to answer this question?


The future is as bright as my faith, and the best is yet to come.

Photo by Ben White on Unsplash

It’s not been a good, great day;

I don’t think tomorrow will be okay.

I am not happy, nor am I sad;

I have no emotions in my heart left.

Happiness went on the weekdays,

It didn’t come back on the weekends.

I’m frightened, and I’m upset.

Will things always be this way?

I have been in my highest of highs,

And in my lowest of lows.

I hope I could change things,

I wish I could fly with my wings.

I am sad; My life’s bad,

Day by day, I’m getting mad.

I wish I could be better,

And…
