25 lessons learnt while being 25!

- You can turn around anything, as long as you are alive.

- Whatever Happens, happens for a reason. There are no co-incidences in life, there is only synchronicity. Ever heard, "When the student is ready, the teacher appears"? Yes, that synchronicity.

- Stressing and overthinking serves no purpose! Yes, I AM saying this.

- No matter how terrible things get, there will always be some people, who will believe in you, and will be kind to you, even when you are a mess. Hold on to them. (I am fortunate enough to have a couple of these people in my life. And would be forever indebted for their support during last 6-8 months. Thank you. You all know who you are :-) )

- Having gratitude makes it easy to deal with all the crap life throws at you!

- It takes courage to be authentic. Faking to fit-in is easy, but to delve deeper into your own soul, embrace yourself for who you are and be okay with it, requires courage.

- Siblings are a blessing!

- Self Care is not selfish.

- Self-love is probably the most difficult form of love to practice.

- Being happy, takes courage.

- Everything will eventually be okay.

- No matter how low you feel at the moment, hang on and keep the hope alive, you will soon feel better.

- Just when you think that since you've survived extremely difficult times, you can survive anything, because it can't get any tougher, life will surprise you new lows!

- Marriage will always be an over-rated concept in India :p

- Every person, especially every difficult person, has a story. They are the way they are for a reason, that we may never be able to fathom.

- Nobody, absolutely nobody owes you anything. If people are nice to you, great. If not, its okay, because you ain't entitled to anything. So, learn to value the kind souls.

- Life never said its fair! So stop being naive :)

- Karma works! It really does!

- Junk food will always be yum! :D

- Love and sex can be mutually exclusive of each other.

- Happiness is - meeting old friends after years, and feeling like nothing has changed!

- Adversity is the mother of personal strength and growth.

- Authenticity, although not trendy, is classic.

-Being okay with your flaws and embracing them is a big pre-requisite for being authentic, genuine and confident.

- You may hate them, disagree with them, or even fight with them, but no one, absolutely no can think for you as selflessly, as your parents. They may say stuff that's unreasonable, but the "intention" behind it, the "heart" behind it.....thats the treasure

The Rebel

The world has a way,
And I do not fit in there.

They want me to be caged,
But I was born to fly

They want me to be sombre,
But I am a wild child.

They want to lock me in systems,
But I am a free spirit.

They want me to honour customs,
But I defy them outright.

They expect me to be submissive,
But I question every bit.

They expect me to obedient,
But I am a rebel. A proud one.

Not every relationship has to have a name: A tribute; A confession!!!!!!

Dear readers,
In my last blog post titled, "Expectations & Attachment are two different aspects in love :)", i had mentioned a small story of Saksham and Raima. Those of you who haven't read that post, pleaseClick Here.Now let me confess that the story of Raima and Saksham is not fictional. It is very much real and I AM THE RAIMA...yes, the author of this blog, Rupali Tyagi is the Raima of that story :) Coming to Saksham, dear readers, I choose not to reveal his identity and I request you all to please respect his privacy as well as this decision of mine.

What I shared with Saksham is precious. It has sculpted me in many ways. Made me a much stronger person and taught the true meaning of detached love. Here is my tribute to something so special and so beautiful.....and oh, the bond I shared with him doesn't have any name. Why? Well, By the time you complete reading this post, you will understand.

My thoughts on Ravinder Singh's new book, "This love that feels right", Open marriages and love outside marriage

This love that feels right, based on the concept, “you can control someone’s actions, not their mind”, is a thought provoking take on open marriages and emotional bonds outside marriage.
The book beautifully explores how an emotional void in a relationship can lead to a man or a woman seeking companionship outside marriage, and no, they are not wrong. At the end of the day, we are all human beings, and crave to be deeply understood, valued, and respected by our partner. But when these basic human needs are not satisfied, a man or a woman tends to become more vulnerable to share their innermost feelings with someone who understands, values and respects them. Emotional void is as good as suffocation, and who enjoys that?

Of course! Every marriage goes through its ups and downs. You cannot give up on someone you love, just because you had a fight/difference of opinion. Of course not. But what when someone takes the efforts to make things work, but their partner is still indifferent to t…
