We all have been through rough patches in life, but has your perspective of the world changed after experiencing certain things? I am assuming yes!
Most of us have stopped believing in good things, we don’t trust people easily but don’t you think you overthink or overjudge at certain times? If you ask me, then I’ll say yes because I have judged people based on my past experiences just to, later on, discover they were good. The truth is there are every kind of people; some good, some bad but the thing is we can’t see everyone through the same eyes. The people you met or the ones you are going to meet will be very different from each other. Don’t let the bad empower the good. There’s a saying, “Before trusting someone keep your eyes open wide, but after trusting them close them half”. I am not telling you to trust someone blindly but hear me out, “Everyone is going to hurt you, find the ones worth the hurt!” I did not use to live by this saying, but sometime back when I met the most amazing people whom I call my friends; they made me realize that I am worth the effort, attention, care, and love and realizing this was the most beautiful feeling. But again, I had to trust them and understand them too in order to be a rainbow in their cloud and for them to be in mine. That’s life, you have to risk it and discover things on your own, with your own perspective. I’ll always be grateful for them, no matter for what span they stay; they might stay till the end, you never know. So, let us just enjoy the moment, live it until it becomes a memory rather than worrying about the past or the future because “Bunny Kitna Bhi try krlo life mei kuch na kuch toh chootega hi, isliye yahin isi pal ka mza lete hain”

Believing in the goodness of people despite all that has happened is brave, not stupid! Be good, in a way nobody plays you. Don’t allow anyone to mess up with your peace of mind. Living in the moment is heartwarming, when you sit with yourself watching the rain, listening to your favorite songs, not lost in the world of your phone, you know you are living your life! And what else does anyone even wants? Live, so that you look back just to smile and cherish the time not to regret it. Take that risk! Try things out! (The things you know are not going to destroy you) Life is too short to overthink. It's important to think good, speak good, and do good. If we want to see positive change in the world, then we need to connect to goodness.
When, you as an individual will be happy the world will automatically become a better place, trust me and try it out. People are the same everywhere, the person you don’t like might be someone’s shoulder to cry on, it’s your perspective that matters. The world will sometimes act good to you, and sometimes cruel, but you can’t let that affect you in a way that changes your personality. For instance, if you will change each time, you meet someone, will there be any “you” left at the end of the day? Your individuality matters, because it makes you the person that you are! It’s important to see goodness in people, “kyuki dhundhe se toh bhagvan bhi miljata hai, yeh toh phir bhi log hai” Makes sense, right? Not expecting anything from anyone, yet being good and kind with everyone will make you more of a human.

Let go of the person and hurt you experienced, we write a new and different story with every person we meet and it’s okay to write some bad stories too, everybody does but that doesn’t mean your book titled “Story of My Life “won’t be a best seller. Think about the people you are grateful for and then think; what if, you would have judged them and thought they are going to leave you too someday and hence, let’s not even be friends with them in the first place? You would have missed out on gems. It would be nice to feel that we are a better world, a world of more compassion and a world of more humanity, and to believe in the basic goodness of man.
You will have to take risks and discover people from your own perspective. Let everyone introduce themselves to you, rather than you judging them. They might stay with you or they might not, but you will always have learning because life teaches you through experience. Believe you are going to meet amazing people who are going to love and respect you like no one else ever did and then wait for the universe to respond (it responds, have faith). I trust you and I believe you are a beautiful soul, let no one tell you any less!
