Ain’t Nobody Got Time for That: Theory #002

For those of you who don’t know, the #theory is an indication for ‘let’s have some real talk and pick you up from the pit of discouragement even before you fall into it’. Before anyone says life advice is for pansies, these posts are a humble effort to keep it real. Do have a look at #theory001 in case you haven’t!

Sometimes in life, the overwhelming number of things we set to do often leaves us in a dilemma of whether we’re doing it right. For that reason and to make things easier, let’s go over the things we absolutely shouldn’t do and spare no time for any such redundant complexities in this beautiful dance of life.
Let’s go over what ain’t nobody got time for.

An Inferiority Complex

Inferiority complexes are the worst hindrances you could come across on your journey to success/redemption. In the simplest words, it’s when you think you’re not as great as your peers and that actually matters to what you, as an individual, are doing.
If not encouraged to do better by looking at the performance of others, their success should have no effect on your self belief whatsoever.

Definition: Something that makes you think you’re lesser than others in a way that only lessens the chances of lessening your self-doubt and is a lesson in itself of lessening the lone light of limitations that lies in you.
And that’s every reason to try your best to never have an inferiority complex.

Faux Emotions

Faux diamonds and faux fur look and feel great, faux emotions- not so much. Faking what you feel is very simply being in denial with yourelf. Expressing what you don’t genuinely feel is a waste of time for two people, as a result of which there’s usually one more hurt person in the world when the the truth dam breaks open.
Don’t like the way someone treats you? Convey it to them as soon as possible. Don’t feel the same way as someone does about you? Faking it won’t help neither of you in the least. Think you’re settling for what you think isn’t satisfactory? Don’t settle.
Be true to yourself.
Feel freely.

Sulking

Relief: Higly temporary and volatile
Usage: Extremely easy
Effect: Hardly any
The only thing worse than failure is sulking about failure. It’s like blowing into a balloon up to the extent that it explodes and then, to keep blowing air into it ignoring the fact that it is torn now and you look like a lunatic. Nothing ever comes out of complaining and blaming yourself for a misfire. Pick up your wand and Expelliarmus the heck out of the situation.
Stop sulking, start redeeming.

That’s pretty much it from the ‘I’m still trying to figure out life and spread the lessons then and there anyway’ department for now.
Do leave any more ‘ain’t nobody got time for that’ if you have any in mind in the comments!

Your Technological Thingamajig

The one thing you never do is lose the charger to your phone/tablet.

Now, I’m not propagating the already tech obsessed notions of our young and growing minds, but am actually trying to prove how much we have grown to become reliant on our electronic gizmos.

You go one day without your phone, and it’s your doom.

You obviously sleep in because the 5 minute interspersed alarms of a rock song isn’t there to wake your brain up. Then, there comes the despair of how no one would believe your absolutely legitimate excuse for your late arrival, because today, your phone not working is the equivalent to ‘the dog ate my homework’ excuse.

You forget the glaringly solid reminder you’d set for your aunty ji’s birthday who would be more than furious if of all the people, her darling niece forgot to wish her on her 49th birthday, because apparently it’s a turning point in a women’s life (probably going from 3 rants per minute to 5).

Your messengers will most definitely have 1834 messages waiting for the second you open them after a couple of hours because of highly redundant group chat discussions.

You have no means of communication with anyone because you have no idea on how to get the old and dusty telephone lying in your house to work.

You forget to write down the awe-inspiring-genius ideas you get because you’re too lazy to reach for the notepad and pencil lying inches away, and instead choose to sulk about the unfortunate state of coma your phone is in.

But in all seriousness, your phone today really has become your notepad, calendar, doodle pad, memory capsule, book reader, mini theatre and whatnot.

Considering that it was once used just to pick up and speak to people, the advancement is monumentally great. So besides the slight overdose of addiction we sometimes delve into, your phone is more or less a miniature version of all the sources you need to do ten things, compactly fitted into one wired, encapsulated, thingamajig.

I think you ‘feel me’ because we all belong to the same huge internet-love-community and might just have no objections whatsoever. =)

I’m also terribly sorry for my recent absence from this quaint little web address you so politely like to visit. It was partially because of what inspired this post, but also because of procrastinatively prolonging to bring words to life. To make up for this delay, here’s a cinquain.
