Dont be so tough on yourself

There are roads you didn't take, there have been journeys you didn't make.
About the past you keep on thinking, still trying to make amends in it.
Trusted others when you didn't want to, over your own intuition..
You might have failed a thousand times and tripped to the ground over and over again.
But Don't be so tough on yourself, my friend
Learn to forgive yourself for not knowing better.
And know that there are no such things as mistakes, there are only lessons.
There will be brighter tomorrows, journeys worth taking and opportunities worth grabbing...
Accept the way you are and who you are..
Don’t be so tough on yourself, my friend!!

There are days where we all are just too hard on ourselves for the things that dont even matter. It’s important to let go of things and its even more important to forgive yourself. We all are struggling with something or the other. We all have our own battles and demons to fight with. But every once in a while it's important to sit back and reflect and know that you can't control everything that happens around you or with you, at times it's better to leave things so that they can take there course. The easiest thing to do is to set a goal but the toughest part is to follow it through, the mistake we make is we start blaming ourselves when our goals are not met but instead of beating ourselves for the failed attempt instead we need to be tough on ourself for following our heart, our dreams, staying committed and for staying true to ourself so that we can better our life and our future. We need to focus on putting more energy for our betterment and eventually we all will find our way, its just a matter of time and patience. 

Lets be more compassionate and be kind to others and most importantly to ourselves!!
Until next time!


  1. Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible because you are never too old to set another goal or to dream a NEW DREAM.

  2. Beautifully written much said in few words...
    I totally agree,We are humans and we do make mistakes.and it's perfectly Ok...what is important is taking our lesson and moving forward.....being tough on yourself solves nothing...u have just yourself....allow yourself to make mistakes and the person u see in the mirror..
