Heres to having my arms wide open for whatever lies ahead. Heres to being in the crowd and knowing how to get lost in it. Heres to all the excitement that still lives within and the ones that have died. Heres to living, breathing and letting live! Heres to all those times when I let myself down, when people let me down and when I let people down. Heres to all the hump days when life felt a little too much! This one is for just living, breathing, getting through the day and being alive. This one is for all the days of happiness, heart breaks, excitement and motivation - the ones that have gone and the ones that are ahead. This one is for dreaming and planning big, and knowing you wont let your future be bleak. #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PositiveVibesOnly #Travelling #TravelDiaries #TravelFreak #TravelLovers #Backpacking #Wanderlust #Backpackers #LuxuryTravels #BucketlistTravels #BucketList #Wandering

Note To Self! Stop looking for happiness in people, things or objects. There will always be this confusion that the future will hold something better, getting a degree will fulfil your ambitions, going on a dream vacation will help you with depression and anxiety, or just having a company of someone you love will give you a fairy tale ending. Stop living in illusion and creating illusions around yourself. If you think of happiness as a dependent factor, you will never achieve it. Stop thinking of all the ifs and buts that will bring happiness along, because they never will. Happiness isn’t a condition, it is a state and a feeling. You create it, you don’t get it. The day you stop fooling yourself that so and so condition will bring it along, the future has it or a person hides it within himself, is the day you’ll finally get it. Stop making expectations your fantasies and revolving your life around them. Happiness comes from within. You’ll only be truly happy once you allow yourself to be. When you are confident enough to accept that YOU create YOUR own happiness, you’ll be able to move mountains, my love! #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PositiveVibesOnly #Travelling #TravelFreak #LuxuryTravels #BucketlistTravels #BucketList # #Wanderlust #TravelGoals #TavelInfluencers

I don’t want to be someone who admire those who stand in front of the crowd, getting appreciation and applauds. I want to be someone who picks the gentle soul who stands in-between the commotion, wary of taking it all in, and yet outshines all. I don’t want to be in awe of someone who catches breathe. I want to be mesmerized by someone who is as trivial as trivial could be, but when they talk, you stop to stare and listen. In a world full of admiration for looks, extroversion, confidence and physical beauty, I want to be around someone who doesn’t just pretend, but actually knows it all. I want to be with those who have struggled through the night, but remind themselves to get through the day. I love the energy of those who, when you look at, you will never be able to recognize the beauty and happiness that’s lost within. I want to be with those who have fought with time, have rough futures and rugged past. I want to give a page in my diary to all those who fall down the edge of a broken cliff with every sunset, yet they manage to claw their way up with every sunrise! #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PositiveVibesOnly #Travelling #TravelDiaries #Wanderlust #TravelFreak #SoloTravels #TravellingTheWorld #BucketList #BucketListGoals #TravellingGoals

- MY LOST LOVE - Of all the lies I have told myself, The biggest was, you’ll look at me, the way I look back. Of all the times I dealt with my heart, The hardest was when you broke it hard. Of all the dreams I dreamt past nights, The scariest was that the truth is nigh. Of all the times I thought I will be happy, Life laughed at me and left me scabby. Of all the love lost and found, Mine left me with my happiness in a mound. Don’t tell me new beginnings are just a step away, I take dozens, and life still throws me astray. #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #MotivationalQuotes #PositiveVibesOnly #TravelBloggers #TravelDiaries #TravelLovers #BucketListTravels #TravellingGoals #Turkey #LuxuryTravels #TravelInfluencers

. I have been pretty dead on the account for the past month or so. First, it was the most happening vacation of my life and after that, I just can’t seem to put anything out for the world to see (read, in my case! Lol). . Finally, finally, I decided to post something today. My life was a blur of work, stress and a lot of other things mingled together the past week. I didn’t eat properly, was overworking, didn’t sleep well (three hours a night, tops!) and a lot more frenzy. Even though I have been tiring myself off like a pro by checking off all the impending tasks, but everything still feels purposeless. I am at that point and time of my life where I have to make a lot of decisions on how I want to live; achieve my goals, fulfill my dreams and all that stuff. Though, your lady right here is super proud, because I completed some very important things, ALHAMDULLILAH, but I lost my active energy in the process. Needless to say, this constant uncertainty has become nagging. The anxiety and panic I am fighting have become just too intense. What I have pondered over in the past week or so and what I constantly remind myself is; what’s meant to be, will be. Beating yourself over it will only cost you your peace of mind and health. The wise action here will be to let the things take the natural course of action. I have been struggling hard to achieve what I wanted, and I know I have it within me to get there. All of us should just hold on to this belief. You know, you have played your part. Now let the fate play its own. At least, this is what I have been telling myself, and you should too. Meanwhile, send all the prayers you can to the lady, right here! There is a dawn to every dusk, you just have to get through the night! Much love. ❤️ . . . . . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #MotivationalQuotes #MotivationalBlogger #PositiveVibesOnly #MotivationalSpeaker #Travelling #Travellers #TravelBloggers #TravelDiaries #TravelLovers #BucketListTravels #TravellingGoals #Turkey #Istanbul #LuxuryTravels #TravelInfluencers

. Home is an experience. It isn’t where you live, it is where your heart is! Often times we confuse the love and comfort we get from certain places and think of it as just a moment’s experience or a distraction from routinely life. At the end of the day, when you are back where you think you belong to, and you still crave for it, you need to rethink. Experiences make us feel at home. People around us, make us understand what being at home is. So, when you feel comfortable with any particular person or a certain place, there should be no qualms. To some, it may take years to become habituated to a certain thing or person, and to others, all it takes is a single day. Live your life the way you are supposed to, not the way people tell you to. Be comfortable if discomfort is making you feel at ease. It might sound absurd, but it is all real when you experience and feel it. As I say, believe in yourself because it is what shoots you to the skies and builds your destiny. You, and only you are the one who holds the key to your future. No one else will open the doors for you. ❤️ . . . . . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritersOnInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PositiveVibesOnly #MotivationalBlogging #MotivationalQuotes #Vacations #TravelGoals #TravelDiaries #TravelBloggers #TravelGoals #Travelling #TravelHolic #BucketListTravel #Traveller #Travels #LuxuryTravellers #TravelPics #TravelBlog #TravelBlogger #TravelDiaries

. . IN THE SEA OF PEOPLE I GOT LOST, BUT I FOUND MY SPIRIT RIGHT AT THE CENTRE OF THE CROWD. ⭐️ . We don’t understand what social or anti-social is. Someone talks too much, laughs too much or is a happy go-lucky sort? Good, let’s classify them as a social butterfly. Someone doesn’t like to talk much, laughs rarely & stays unnoticed at times? They’re anti-social. Wrong! . I wouldn’t get into it more, but I fall into the former category. I laugh a lot, as in A LOT. I laugh at my own jokes & sometimes without any jokes, too. Lol! But, I am antisocial to the core. The crowds, a lot of people & noisy gatherings disturb & distress me. I have tried to overcome it with time, and have been quite successful in doing so lately. . However, there is this thing about travelling, it changes you as a person. The best part about Istanbul is that it brings out a completely different side of you. I didn’t know I had a party spirit in me, before roaming around the streets. I didn’t know I can laugh like a crazy & dance like a maniac without worrying about the public eyes & what people will think of me. I found that you can just enjoy & live in the moment, shedding away all the worries you have. The past year was so tough I thought I would have to live with the constant nagging thoughts. Boy, was I wrong! When people say travelling ignites a fire within you, they can’t be more right. I found a lot about myself I didn’t know before. I got to know who I, as a real person, am when not involved in worldly matters. It is safe to say I love this side of me. In the midst of my general routine, I might lose a touch to me again, but I have fallen in love with it, & without any doubt I will give in the world in a blink of an eye to get it back, ALWAYS. . . . . . . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritersOnInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PositiveVibesOnly #MotivationalBlogging #SelfHelp #Vacations #TravelGoals #TravelDiaries #TravelBloggers #TravelGoals #Travelling #TravelHolic #BucketListTravel #Traveller #Travels #LuxuryTravellers #TravelPics #TravelBlog #TravelBlogger

. You’re a figment of an imagination, a droplet in the ocean, and a speck in the sky in a grand scheme of things. Your existence doesn’t matter. Neither can it affect anything, nor has it the capability to falter the universe when you are not there. So, why do you live? Why do you strive towards betterment every single day? . Your existence matters, but only to you. It can change fates and move mountains, but only after you realize you have it within you. With millions and billions of people living on the same planet, one human can seldom change the fate of mankind. But that particular human can change his/her own life and destiny. . Stop if you think your miseries, sorrows, happiness, failures, achievements do not make a difference. Because they do. Majorly to you! You make or break your own life, and in doing so, set a precedent that either makes people want to spend a life like yours or cringe and pray that they don’t spend their time here like you did. . The decision is all yours! You decide if you want to spend a life worth living, or live a life that didn’t have a life in it. . . . . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritersOnInstagram #WriterCommunityOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #PositiveVibesOnly #MotivationalBlogging #SelfHelp #MotivationalQuotes #BossBabe #GirlPower #Vacations #TravelGoals #TravelDiaries #TravelBloggers #TravelGoals #Travelling #TravelHolic #BucketListTravel #Traveller #Travels #Turkey

2 months ago

Do you ever feel the happiness is temporary? Do you ever feel whatever good is happening right now will fade away. I don’t know about you, but I do. . Sometimes, when we expect the unexpected, that happiness tends to make us dubious of what’s going to happen next. Even when we have everything we want at the moment, the nagging doubt and uncertainty disturbs us from the back of the mind. At some level, all humans have a limit to which they expect unusual good to happen. You get to go to the vacation you were yearning for, the job you thought you didn’t deserve or admission in an institute which you felt was above your calibre. Even when you have a proof that this thing is happening right here, with you and in front of you, you feel that something bad is going to happen the last moment. . Cut yourself some slack. The negativity and the confusion that still persists is all because of your inability to give yourself a few carefree moments of happiness. So what, if you aren’t able to go on that vacation, get the dream job or admission in the best institute? You can still enjoy the time when you were anticipating it to happen. . If you spend so much time worrying what’s to happen next, you won’t live what’s happening RIGHT NOW. Live in the present, because even if you don’t get what you wanted. In the end, you are going to cherish the time you spent excited over what’s to come. And, if you get that particular thing, you will certainly repent the time you wasted doubting and beating yourself over it. . Enjoy life, because uncertainty and the inability to enjoy the smallest of happiness won’t take you anywhere. Always look back with a smile on your face, not a frown on your forehead. . . . . . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritersOnInstagram #WriterCommunityOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #PositiveVibesOnly #MotivationalBlogging #SelfHelp #Yoga #Meditation #Workout #Stress #Depression #Anxiety #MotivationalQuotes

I, sometimes, feel that emotional pain is more hurtful than the physical pain. When you are hurt physically, you know how long it is going to take to heal, but the mental scars run deep. It is bearable to get over a broken arm or leg, but there is no way you can cope up with the anxiety that hits you in waves, the exhaustion that takes you over in the middle of a group of people, and the constant overthinking that floods your brain. . We sympathize with people who are physically injured, but we never acknowledge those who are near to losing it emotionally. We see happy, smiling and cheerful faces, what we don’t see is the battle that’s raging behind them. . My most of the posts will emphasize on one single point; everyone has a different story to tell. Every person is a different character and every day is a different stage they are playing on. When you can’t help someone overcome the emotional strain, don’t judge them either. It takes the bravest of people to hide their mental condition in bouts of laughter and spells of smile.

There will never be a right time! . We are always waiting for the right time to take a big decision, right time to move jobs, right time to invest in a business, right time to take a vacation, right time to tell someone you like them, and a lot more. Our list of tasks that depends on right time never ends. But, why is that so? What exactly is the right time, and why do we wait for it? . Just like everyone else out there, I have also been the victim of this thinking where I procrastinate and justify myself by saying that it isn’t the right time. So, when will the right time be? If it isn’t right now, it never will be. You lose purpose when you stall yourself and your decisions by giving into this obsession of the right time. How exactly do you know it is the right time? Don’t bullshit yourself and me by saying you just know when the time is right. While that might be right, it is only your heart and brain that collaborate to tell you now is the time to take that step. But that all can be done a little sooner. . Good things happen when you don’t wait for your time, instead create it. Your risks turn into fruition when instead of thinking what will happen next, you just do it. You get the dream job, the person you love, go on your dream vacation and so on, when instead of telling yourself there will come a day when you’ll do it, you actually do it. . Don’t kill yourself in this race of finding the right time or perfect moment. Hustle to create one, right here and right now. Nothing can stop you, if you stop stopping yourself! . . . . . . . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritersOnInstagram #WriterCommunityOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #PositiveVibesOnly #MotivationalBlogging #SelfHelp #Depression #Anxiety #BossBabe #GirlPower

2 months ago

I was recently talking to someone about some problems we both were facing and I realized how we have become part of a rat race to prove, ‘My problems are bigger than yours’! . Before I go any further, have you ever realized whenever someone shares their worries with you, you end up molding the conversation as per your wishes. What it means is that instead of consoling and logically explaining them what to do, you end up ranting out your problems and venting out your frustration (no matter how genuine they might be). . Having said that, there is nothing wrong in this, but when someone is sharing a part of themselves with you, give them the liberty to share it fully. It’s not a race, it’s life! You would get nothing by comparing and weighing your problems with others. Sometimes you have to be a good listening ear, even if you are struck with sorrows yourself. Listening to others is a kind of privilege not all of us have. If you think of it that way, someone is trusting you enough to give you their piece of heart that’s broken or blackened with time. . Be compassionate! Be kind! Be generous! Sometimes just listening or helping others end up taking so much of your time that the negativities which surround you vanish without being noticed. Always have a special place in the heart and your everyday time for someone you can help out. Believe me, you end up helping yourself more than you helped them.

3 months ago

I was reading a self-reflection journal a few days back and some of the pointers mentioned in it just helped me put into perspective a very important part of our everyday lives. . We often think we had a very bad, sad or depressing day. Though, the reality is that, most of us have a particular 15-20 bad min tops most of the times. We allow those few minutes to change our perspective on how our entire day was and let our energy & enthusiasm go downhill from there. You let your mind wander, your enthusiasm falter and your self-love waver for mere minutes and that let your thoughts turn wild and undisciplined. . Whatever you are thinking at that moment, you are allowing yourself to get carried away by a negative vibe. Why would you allow someone’s single negative remark, emotionally draining comment, bad result or whatsoever destroy a DAY of your life? . You have got this. You have this under control. I know and I understand when I say that our minds are very complex systems, which are capable of completely destroying or uplifting us. It is hard, but focusing on positives isn’t impossible. Pay attention to yourself. Love yourself. Above all, BE YOURSELF. In the end, being yourself is what will help you salvage the days of your lives that could just have been the best ones, but you let a few weak moments rule them. I know you have this one within you, I know you have the courage to turn your life around for good. Like I always say, all you need in abundance is BELIEF! ⭐️ . . . . . . . . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PositiveVibesOnly #MotivationalBlogging #MotivationalInfluencer #MotivationalSpeaker #SelfHelp #SelfHelpThreads

This picture (as you can see) is heavily edited & filtered (courtesy: Snapchat filters), and so is our life on social media. What you see & we put here is merely a deception and does not contain the reality that you expect it to. • You see us in these pictures, where we look our best and have a wide smile on our faces. What you don’t know is the thousand pictures that we take every day, so we can have the ONE that can actually be uploaded. You don’t understand the continuous struggle that accompanies our life (especially beauty & lifestyle bloggers) because we have a public image or reputation to maintain. To top it off, all people see is just a beautiful picture & get impressed of it. Mind you, this isn’t how we look in our actual lives. • You visit our profile daily & get amazed by yet another makeup/clothing haul, a gift we received or visit to a popular restaurant once again. You think our lives are laden with PRs, outings, shoppings, luxury and what not. What you don’t see is how we are struggling at work, home or relationships. How we have to make time every day to bring the content that you enjoy the most while struggling with exactly the same problems you face. • You see what we show you on social media. Our perfect lives, beautiful faces and happy, happy personalities are a deception. We love you, we love our audience and that is why we continue to create the content in this space. You have all the right to get inspired from us. We love when you appreciate us, because we successfully manage to add something positive to your day. But, do not envy us because you think we have everything we ever wanted and we can’t relate to you. If anything, we are struggling in lives more than you can imagine. • This post is especially for lifestyle, travel and fashion bloggers, because they look glamarous the most, but I know for sure, their lives are not! • • • • • #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #BBlogRT #BBlogger #MotivationalBlogger #MotivationalQuotes #MotivationalSpeaker #BossBabe #PositiveVibesOnly

This is one of the worst things when you associate yourself with words a lot. Sometimes you just aren’t able to write, and this leaves a gaping hole, while the other times you can fill in pages and pages, smearing your hands with ink and the words won’t leave you stranded. • If words mean the same to you as they mean to me, give yourself a break and be patient. You will write when you are meant to. Your words carry a lot of weight, and they have the power to make a difference. Never use them carelessly! • • • • #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PositiveVibesOnly #PositiveVibes #MotivationalBlogging #MotivationalQuotes #MotivationalSpeaker #Depression #Anxiety #Yoga #Meditation #SelfHelpThreads #Workout

Have you noticed lately how our egos have so inflated that we can’t even say sorry or realize when wrong? We would rather prefer to end our relationship and cut off people than to accept our mistakes. • We all tend to ignore our flaws, and point fingers at others. It has become so easy for us, just like an everyday activity or a hobby, to neglect the wrongs we have committed and to diss out on people instead. How much courage does it take to accept your own flaw rather than dumping it on someone who did nothing wrong? • Some people, you and I, never mature. They will prefer to keep their egos and head higher rather than owning their wrongdoings. A strong person is the one who has the ability to save relationships by jumping in with apologies and regret where required. A single sorry won’t cost you anything. However, it will end up giving you a person back and saving a relationship. • When you cut off someone close from your life, it is akin to severing a limb. Yes, sometimes it is very hard to hurt your ego, realizing and accepting the mistake, and admitting it. It will definitely feel like succumbing and giving in, but just think of all the hurt you are causing to a living, breathing human being. Remember that it all comes back; might not in days or months, but in years too. The hurt you cause can leave someone injured for a while, but they will grow up to be mighty and powerful. In the end, you will be the one who will be left with regrets. Take it from someone who do feel it, regrets are a tumour you would never want to develop.

#GratitudeInGrief • If there is one thing I have learned over time; having struggled with anxiety, uncertainty and the never-ending mourning after my mom’s death; is you might lose something that was the world to you, but you will end up being paid in ways beyond contemplation. • You might lose a loved one, which will leave a hollow feeling in your chest, but you will end up discovering a lot. I lost my mother, but I gained myself in the process of detaching the ghosts of her memories. I learned how to live life without expecting anything from anyone. I understood that I am not a mommy’s little girl anymore, and this is where my journey to discover myself began from. It is safe to say that just under a year, I have emerged as someone stronger, outspoken, empathic and forgiving. I have developed gratitude and the urge to help those in misery. I lost my mother, but I discovered my personality in the process. I gained an exposure to this cruel, cruel world, all the while learning how to stand tall in the face of adversities. • For me, it was the death of my mother, which made me develop in ways I wouldn’t have ever otherwise, & I am thankful to ALLAH for it. Needless to say, there is a harrowing feeling that never leaves me since the day of her death. • The purpose of sharing this story is because someone reached out to me through DM, and wanted me to share this here. There is a gratitude in grief, for all of us. Some of us might find it early in life, while others will have to struggle to grasp it. Know that you are going to get it, sooner or later. ALLAH never takes something away from humans more than they can bear the loss of, it is a given. Trust in His decision & patiently wait for the time when you are able to understand His wisdom. For He loves His creations seventy times more than a mother. How can He leave you hollowed, all alone & without a substitute door that leads to a new albeit hard but peaceful life? • • #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PositiveVibesOnly #PositiveVibes #MotivationalBlogging #MotivationalQuotes #MotivationalSpeaker #Depression #Anxiety #SelfHelpThreads

We all have been trying to find our way to back to the person we once knew as ourselves. We all are struggling to fit into the description of someone you described as the person who lives inside your skin now. Before you realize, how time has changed you, or how you have changed yourself with time, realize that whatever has happened might not be for the good, but you can turn it out that way. . . The quest to find our real selves is so immense that we tend to forget self-reflection. Stop and just for once question yourself; am I happy? Am I at peace? Am I in satisfaction with the way my life is turning out to be? Take your good time answering these questions. Don’t hurry or pressurize yourself to get the answers, because that’s what we impatient, impatient humans do! Give yourself a breather till you find the answer you have been looking for all along. . . You won’t ever find yourself till you discover the root of your happiness or your heart ache. Discover it, and stick to it. Self-reflection is extremely important because it helps you in charting out the course of actions. If you ever wish to live life peacefully and with content, be mindful of what’s going inside you and what keeps you satisfied. . . It’s easy to be hard on yourself, but do you know what’s not easy? To learn how not to be. Always give yourself the benefit of the doubt and be happy when you commit mistakes and fall. You will never be able to get back up, if you don’t fall. And, do you know, who are the bravest people? Who knows how to pick themselves up, and pick themselves with grace when they fall in public. You won’t ever be able to find anyone courageous than someone who knows what it takes to fall head-on yet loves himself so much that won’t let this obstacle distract him from this journey called LIFE! ❤️ . .

Always be yourself! • Be yourself, even if it means opening up to people you think you can trust, but ending up betrayed and torn. • Be yourself, even if it means helping those who were never there for you, even when you called out to them hopefully and desperately. • Be yourself, even if it means falling in love with someone who can never be yours, who will never be yours and who isn’t even yours right now, yet you can’t control how you feel. • Be yourself, even if it means being so sensitive to others that you end up getting hurt while sharing their sorrows. • Be yourself, even if you are a constant source of criticism, judgements and taunts for just being you. • Always be yourself, even if it unashamedly means to be honest, raw and sensitive in a world full of people who won’t even give you a second glance worth savoring. There is nothing better in this world than knowing someone who is unabashedly, the vulnerably purest form of themselves there can ever be. • Artwork: @uuuu__jin . . . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #WriterCommunityOfInstagram #MicroTales #WriterFollowWriters #MotivationalBlogger #MotivationalSpeaker #BloggersWanted #MotivationalWriter #PositiveVibesOnly #IWrite #Anxiety #Stress #Depression #Yoga #Meditation #Workout #BossBabe #BeYourself #LoveYourself

3 months ago

Don’t ever tell anyone that they shouldn’t be sad, because there are people who are going through harder times in life. Just because people have it harder, it does not mean that their pain is any less. . . We, generally, tell people to look at those who are below them. That’s completely alright. But, never underestimate the intensity of anyone’s situation. What a person needs to know during such times, and if they are reaching out to you, is that they have you and this time is supposed to pass! . . It’s okay to be sad, at times of hardships and sorrows. Keeping the positive outlook on life and staying optimistic that there is a better time to come is what needs to be preached. If you have been through miseries a lot, and can’t stay positive on what’s to come, don’t fall short of hopes either. Reach out to the people you love, and seek their help. There’s nothing wrong in that. . . If you are one of those who see a friend or acquaintance struggling with the optimism or even realism, HELP! Don’t be a spectator. Don’t tell them to suffer or tolerate just because people have it way harder. Everyone has their own problems and their own threshold of bearing them. No one’s pain can ever be compared to the other’s. . . Be patient, preach patience and learn patience! A little kindness and empathy may save lives, you never know. You might be just what the other person needs right now. Never hesitate, no matter what the relation. . .

The road to recovery and self-discovery is never straight, it is always a spiral
4 months ago

The road to recovery and self-discovery is never straight, it is always a spiral. Whenever we constructively set out to improve ourselves, there are continuous turns along the path that hinder our progress & confuse us as to where we are going. During such times it feels, we are back to where we started from, or even worse. We feel that overcoming the fear, strengthening our beliefs & motivating ourselves to trust people was all for nothing. . . What we don’t understand is, this is how exactly healing happens. You can’t wave a wand, one day, and be all fine the next. This is life, and it is filled with peaks and troughs. You are supposed to be all happy and excited about reclaiming yourself, slowly and gradually. On the other hand, you are also allowed to feel that you are failing at this thing called life, and everything else is falling apart. . . While I won’t say that degrading yourselves at times is right, I won’t claim it to be totally wrong either. When you suffer or have suffered some emotionally traumatic experience in life or are just going through a rough patch, coming out of it is hard. When you understand your situation, try to cope up with it, and work on regaining the strength, be aware of the changes happening within you and around you. When you start feeling positive and develop an optimistic outlook on life, everything will look better. On the flip side, there would be days when you’ll have to even struggle with the notion of getting to your destination. . . Understand that finding your lost purpose and healing is a long procedure. It takes time, because it is supposed to take time. You’ll be down, but you’ll be rejoiced too. Develop perseverance and strength that kept you going for so long. It is within you, you just need to hold on to it for a bit long. You’re learning to get better for good, you’re supposed to stumble along the way. The finish line will be worth it! ❤️ . .

I don’t understand why everyone is obsessed with ‘Self-victimization’ these days
4 months ago

I don’t understand why everyone is obsessed with ‘Self-victimization’ these days. When I say everyone, I clearly understand that I was a reckless part of this too. . . Just go to any of your social media accounts, primarily Facebook, search any friend of yours, & you’ll see a sad and depressive quote making you think that either they have a very hard life or they are going through a breakup. Lol. I, in no way, am generalizing or concluding that people don’t have hard lives, but this social race to portray it among the public & to self-victimize seems to be getting out of hands. . . Those who think that it is the new cool to showcase your problems on social media need to rethink the perception they present of themselves. I was once the same, so I understand this need to find public empathy or sympathy to be precise. . . Never, ever self-sympathize or victimize yourself. More than ever, it is the need of the time to be strong for not only yourself, but for the people around you. I’d say, develop a personality that stands out due to its boldness and fearlessness, not due to the victim vibes it give. . . I know, people will tell you how shamelessly blunt are you or how rude, it is for you to stand up for yourself, even when it is the only option. But, victimizing has never been the solution. Learn to be brave for yourself & fight for yourself. Venting out your frustration or anxiety, & garnering sympathy from the public might give you satisfaction, but that’s only temporary. The permanent peace of mind & tranquility lies in knowing that you are sufficient for yourself & you know how to be brave. . . Do anything, but don’t victimize yourself! If you didn’t realize that you have been doing this all along, realize it now. You know how strong you are, & you can learn to find that strength within yourself. Believe & stay positive. . .

Being a quiet person & how to deal with it! . . Some of us are naturally quiet and love staying silent. For most part of my life, I have been the same, and still am with all my I-don’t-feel-like-talking tantrums still bothering the people around me. Those of us who like to stay quiet, are often subjected to people’s judgement of our personality based on what they can interpret. . . It’s simple; when you have a personality that’s confusing, it isn’t easy for other people to find out one version of you. . . Some people will find you rude, some will conclude you are depressed, while others will find you judgmental. Though it might be hard for you to deal with it, but the way you have structured your personality make it extremely difficult for everyone to settle on one interpretation of you. . . It’s extremely difficult to shut down all the noise around you. While there is nothing wrong in having a dubious personality, you need to learn to be more receptive towards people’s attitude and your public image. You need to be a bit more flexible, and find a common ground whenever dealing with the public. Find that one thing in your personality, which you are comfortable being most of the times. You might like staying quiet, but learn to make interactive conversations a part of your routine. Talk about topics you like the most, and listen to the conversations attentively that others want to have. Start by showing interest, and slowly learn to add in to the conversations. You’ll learn that with time, you’ll find yourself indulging into public talk more and more. . . There’s nothing wrong with being quiet. I say this again, and emphasize it as much as I can, you have your unique personality and being quiet might just be the domineering element of it. But, learn to make people write a version of your story that you truly are or want to be. It’s always better than listening to someone describing you as a ‘You’ that you definitely are not. . . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #MotivationalBlogging #MotivationalBloggers #PositiveVibesOnly #BossBabe #MotivationalSpeaker #Anxiety #Stress #Depression #Yoga #Meditation #PakWritersCommunity #QOTD

#ToBeVulnerablyHonest . . Have you ever wondered, what’s more difficult; going through something bad or realizing that you have gone through it? . . For most of us, who have gone through any traumatic past experience(s), the realization hits too late. Sometimes, it can take months and sometimes it can take decades. It rips open your soul and shreds your heart into pieces. . . We, humans, have a very complex defense mechanism. When we are faced with something bad; we either fight or just zone out to freeze ourselves of the torturous impact. Those who fight might break down in the end, but they get through the problem then and there. However, all of us who just freeze out due to the extreme mental strain have to face the reality and intensity of what we have gone through, at some later parts of our lives. It could either be the recurrence of that incident or just talking to someone, letting it out of your system, and sharing it for the very first time. . . It, suddenly, becomes all real. The reality comes crashing in. The magnitude of the situation intensifies by a thousand times. All of a sudden, you realise what happened to you and how you allowed it all to be inflicted on you. . . If you’re going through this phase in life, have gone through or are perplexed on how you should deal with it; JUST LET IT BE! The best thing for yourself right now is to face the reality you had been burying deep down for months, years or decades. Let it sink in, stand up and face yourself in the mirror. Let those tears flow freely. Now, is the time to face what happened to you, and let out that incident/part of your life. You’re all ready to leave behind that torturous phase of your existence. Stay strong and leave it all. Hang in there. You’re way above it all! In the end, do remember, this too shall pass, just like everything else did. . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WriterCommunityOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #Depression #Anxiety #Stress #QOTD #InstaQuotes #AuthorsOfInstagram #PakWritersCommunity #PositiveVibesOnly #SelfHelp #Meditation #MotivationalBlogging

A shoutout to all the sexual abuse victims and survivors; including those who are still in a regular contact with their abuser. This is a little power reminder for you, because you have gone through something that was soul-shattering yet defining. . I know, what you go through. I believe, when you tell yourself, it’s okay, it wasn’t that bad, one day; and the next day, you want to hurt yourself and kill the person who did this. . Let me map it out for you clearly; you don’t have to be raped to be sexually abused. If you had to go through improper touching, lewd remarks and unsettling advances - that right there is sexual abuse. Believe me, it had nothing to do with you and everything to do with the sick person who did that to you. . Don’t blame yourself for what you had to go through. It isn’t your fault if you couldn’t speak up when it happened for the first time, second time, third time or for the zillionth time. . I know how hard it is for you to forget what you have gone through. I know how you bury all that deep into your head, telling yourself that it was nothing big and it could have been worse. Or, if it was worse, I know you cradle yourself to sleep every day. . If you’re still in a regular contact with your abuser or live with them, pretending that nothing happened, I feel you. I feel the immensity of self-shame and vulnerability that hit you in waves. I know, it’s a survival strategy to just tell yourself that if it isn’t happening again, it never will! I know, you believe that they repent what they did to you! . Sweetheart, you have gone through a lot. You deserve a lot of good things in life. Believe that, and hold on to that. Going through sexual abuse, no matter what the intensity, isn’t easy. You went through it, and are still living your life with courage and bravery. You didn’t let it define you then, don’t let it define you now too! Doesn’t matter if you couldn’t speak up, I have never found someone braver than you! . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WriterCommunityOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PositiveVibesOnly #MotivationalBlogging #SelfHelp #Stress #Depression #Anxiety #MeToo #AuthorsOfInstagram #PakWritersCommunity

You’re important. If not for someone else, then for yourself. . . Your decisions are significant. If not for anyone else’s life, then for your life. . . Your happiness means the world. If not to anyone, then to you! . . Let’s not bind our happiness, decisions, self-worth and the realization that ‘I’ am important to people’s approval. We spend a lot of time waiting for the society’s nod, when all we have to do is to look deep inside our heart to see if that particular decision, choice or moment affects us or not. . . The key to self-love lies in these small things. If you want to love yourself, learn to give importance to the decisions you take. If you want to stay happy and in bliss, try to appreciate the small things that surround you, and the little steps you take towards happiness. . . You don’t need to stamp yourself with people’s approval. Similarly, you don’t need to mold every other person as per your liking. We all are unique, with all our qualities and flaws. This is what makes us human. Don’t destroy anyone’s optimism and outlook towards life by quashing their self-worth and judging them each step of the way. Don’t do this to yourself either. . . Live every day like it’s a new day, which it is. Remind yourself to learn kindness, nurture love, develop strength with every passing day. At the end of the day, don’t forget to spread it among the people around you. Because, you know what, the world needs it! It will always be a happy idea to develop and spread it, one person at a time! ❤️ . .

. ‘If we must both be right. We will lose each other.’ . . . This is a piece called ‘Exile’ from @nayyirah.waheed’s Poem Collection ‘From Salt’. I read it last night, and it hit me at all the right places. Lol. . . . Our egos are bigger than humans in this day and age. Period. We don’t understand that in the race of being right and superior, we have overthrown how important relationships are for us. We don’t, for a second, think that losing a person is in no way comparable to slashing your ego. There is no harm in accepting your fault and flaw, and backing off when needed. . . Why do we make such a buzz whenever it comes to accepting our mistakes and shortcomings? Though this trait is all what makes us humans, but why can’t we just try to value relationships and love a bit more than the urge to be declared right at all times? We all have this flaw, as it as simple! I don’t like being called wrong, and you must not either too, and if it comes to that there’s nothing wrong in this. However, what’s wrong is losing each other for our narcissistic and egoistical selves. . . Let’s try to value relationships and love a bit more. Let’s keep our over-grown self-esteems aside when it comes to salvaging relationships. Because, in the end, it is better to lose that ego than to lose the person! . . .

. #ThoughtsOfAnOverthinker . . Do you ever feel like apologizing to yourself for the torment you so carelessly inflict? For the hours you spend overthinking. The nights you lay awake killing yourself over nothing. For weeks of indecision on matters that aren’t even important. For months you take to detach yourself from someone who didn’t even notice you. And for years that you count on your hands to live through. . . . . Have you ever taken a minute to detox yourself of all these thoughts, self-hatred and injustice? Have you ever realized that the person who stares back at you, when you look in the mirror, deserves an apology? . . . I am sure, your answer is NO! Contemplate this NO. I am sorry, this is going to hurt you; but you are a loser, if your answer is NO, you know it, and still aren’t allowing yourself to get over it. Now, don’t drown in self-pity. That’s the worst of things you can do for yourself right now. Steer into a new direction, give your life a sense and purpose, get over restlessness and try to achieve happiness in solitude. The time you are with people, enjoy spending it with them. . . . Above all, remember that the person who lives inside you is the one who deserves to be discovered. He is the one who deserves happiness the most. If you don’t have anyone else, dig out that peace and self-worth all by yourself. In the end, pat yourself on the back, because you have earned this appreciation. Let your outer and inner self live in sync and harmony now! ❤️ . . .

Do you dread uncertainty as much as I do? Do you fear the fear as much as I do?

Do you dread uncertainty as much as I do? Do you fear the fear as much as I do? It’s all normal! We are programmed to believe that showing fear is the sign of weakness, but I believe this is utter bullshit. . . How can realizing your fear be a sign of weakness? For me, it is the ultimate level of bravery and self-confidence. For me, it is in this proclamation that we liberate ourselves of the guilt that eats our insides. For me, staring that fear in the eye is the definition of self-love. . . We all are sick of uncertainty, fear and changes sometime. It is all normal and human. However, thinking that you are weak and incapable of protecting yourself isn’t. Those who tell you that being terrified of the circumstances is useless are TOXIC. You don’t need such kind of negativity and people in your life. . . One thing I have learned from the fear that has gripped me for so long that I missed some of the most important things of my life is that you control fear, it doesn’t control you. While there is no harm in feeling it, it isn’t right to let it control you or your actions. . . The day you let it go, is the day you’ll realize the tranquility you were missing on. Believe me, it is worth every bit the struggle you had to go through! . . . .

If you aren’t getting something you have yearned for, it simply means it isn’t destined for you. We often beat ourselves over the things we strongly desire, and even after working too hard we don’t achieve them. The simple answer lies in how destiny works out for you. Push yourself, but don’t kill yourself over something that isn’t attainable even after you have put in everything. . . Doesn’t matter if you believe or not, destiny holds a strong force over your fate. If you are not getting their, it means you aren’t supposed to be their. Keep up with the hustle, because something positive is definitely just a mysterious step away. Believe! ❤️ . . . . . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritersOnInstagram #WriterCommunityOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #PositiveVibesOnly #MotivationalBlogging #SelfHelp # #Stress #Depression #Anxiety

Finallyyyy, the excitement of going out to vote has subsided, and the results have started to stream in. So, I put that stamp right atop Imran Khan’s name, and now I can’t wait for him to win. There is a lot that he has said, which agitates and infuriates me, but the man’s determination and will surpasses everything. Regardless to say, he deserves a chance to lead a change that he has promised. Considering, some of the unfortunate voted for Amir Liaquat just to support IK, we really want that change he talks about all the time! 😂 *Fingers crossed* 🤩 . . While I and my sister continue to dance on ‘Rok Sako To Rok Lo Tabdeeli Aaye Hai’ with every win for PTI, don’t forget to stay in senses if the party you support doesn’t win. 😊 We all want Pakistan’s betterment in the end, so let what the majority did at the polling stations take the correct course of action now. . . . . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WriterCommunityOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #WritersFollowWriters #BBBloggers #POTD #BestOfTheDay #BBlogRT #PositiveVibesOnly #PakWritersCommunity #MotivationalBlogging #GeneralElections2018 #ImranKhan #NayaPakistan
We are so obsessed with body shape that we have destroyed the confidence of God
5 months ago

We are so obsessed with body shape that we have destroyed the confidence of God knows how many people, especially young girls. I still remember when I was fat; all I got to hear was I needed to lose weight & how girls my age should be ‘fit’ & ‘smart’. I was bullied and made fun of! Everyone automatically assumed that just because I was fat, meant I ate a lot. This was obviously not the case! 🙄 . Fast forward a few years, I got ill and managed to shed kilos. The same aunties & friends who body shamed me started to ask if I was okay, because I had lost a lot of weight and didn’t look good. Yes! The same people who tortured me, just because I was overweight, told me that I still didn’t look good, now that I had managed to lose the fat. Being an over-sensitive person, this once again shattered my self-worth, making me think I am not beautiful. Obviously, I wasn’t okay when I was fat, and I didn’t look good after losing weight either. My young self definitely had a lot to be confused about. . The people who bullied me included some of my closest friends; friends who I confined in, & friends who I was always there for. I still remember, how even after starting university, I had to go through the same bullying again. Please note that this time I had a completely normal weight with not an extra ounce of fat. Still, I was forced to believe that I am fat, & I should ‘stop eating’ a lot. . All these years of hatred have developed a new kind of self-love in me. Do I love myself? YES! Am I confident in my skin? NO! But, I am working on it. A little note for all those, who are body-shamed; you’re beautiful just the way you are. People are going to tell you otherwise. Never, ever believe them! Love yourself, because it is your job to do, not of the people around you! If for anything, they’ll try to bring you down. It’s your body, not a public park, where you are forced to allow people to walk all over you or even litter you. Be wise! ❤️ . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WriterCommunityOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #InstaWriters #PositiveVibesOnly #BodyShaming #SelfLove #Depression #Anxiety

#ThoughtsOfAnOverthinker . . Overthinking makes a mess out of a person. At one stage, you think you are all fine, but the very next day, your progress slashes down to zero. One thing I have personally experienced a zillion times & have come to realize the reperucssions of is the lack of motivation & self-esteem that arise when you overthink. . Even in personal life, when you ruminate, you tend to start thinking of yourself as a failure. The professional or study life might be a completely different case, because there you start feeling inadequate, & incapable of doing anything major & go all judgemental on yourself. So, what should we do to stop overanalyzing things & actually start working on them without jumping to conclusions? . Our struggles are not a light switch; you can’t just turn them off. Whenever you set out to do something, make sure you are giving yourself enough time & a fair chance before you expect to get any result, let alone a positive one. . Hoping, expecting & overthinking that once you are done with something you are going to get a positive result instantly can hold you back from the real progress. This ends up in lowering your self-esteem, which makes you beat yourself over nothing. . You need to realize that journey begins with the first step, which is generally the hardest to take. Once you take it, stick to it, and try again & again. Give yourself the liberty to fail. Those who try, try, try and stay steadfast are the actual winners. The end result might be not what you expect, but it is the result of sheer hard work. . There is nothing wrong with you! Give yourself some space, time & the energy to change and do! Procrastinate, but don’t let it change your life! Think, but don’t overthink! . Let yourself and the power you have, change your life for good. Remember that those who yearn, earn! ❤️ . PS: I didn’t know you people will actually appreciate & DM me for constant updates on this series. Sorry, I’ve been extremely lethargic lately. Bear with me. ❤️ . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #WritersFollowWriters #InstaWriters #PositiveVibesOnly #SelfHelp #Depression #Anxiety #QOTD #InstaQuotes #Stress

The world is full of terrible people; people who’ll judge you every step of the way, will try to bring you down & will find the worst in every situation. These people will make you believe that we are falling short of goodness on Earth. . . I don’t think this is the case. There is a good in every bad, and there is a growing goodness in a world full of bad people. There are people who love to help each other reach the top. There are people who would have a look at your face, and will know there is something horribly wrong. Then there are those, who you wouldn’t know in person, but will always be there for you whenever you need to share something or vent out a problem or frustration. It might seem that such people don’t exist, but I have been helped by a lot of those I have never met in my life. I am sure you would have been too, & if not, look out for the right person & you will definitely find them. . . Goodness does exist. You just need to fight it; ward off negativity & find the good in people who try to bring you down, because they do have a lot of goodness in them. It just takes the right person under right circumstances to bring it out. For every person who judges you unconditionally, remember that there is someone who just wants you to believe in you. For every person who tells you, you are unable to do it; there is someone who is rooting for you to win. For every person who bullies or make fun of you, you know there is someone who wants you to feel comfortable in your own skin. . . There are no parameters to check if someone is good or bad. If you can’t find goodness around you, create one. Be a shoulder for someone to cry on, and be a lending ear for those who just want someone to listen to them. Don’t cry when you can’t find a safe space for your sorrows, start one! It wouldn’t be long before you see it swelling and growing into a big, positive bubble. ❤️ . .

5 months ago

Those who know me, know how much of a writing nerd I am. I only do two things when I am not working; reading or writing. I have read hundreds of books and novels, ranging from science fiction, poetry, dystopia, mystery, thrillers to fanfictions and history etc. As they say, you need to be a reader to be a writer. Reading is not just my escape from the reality, but it is self-reflection for me too. It is with intensive reading that I realized, man oh man, I can write! ❤️ . . I have previously written two different manuscripts, and decided to just throw them without even reading again. However, something yesterday, made me reflect on my life goals and I realized, I have always wanted to write a novel among all the other dreams that I have. I will check them off, one by one, In Sha Allah. ☺️ . . With this in mind, and a kick-ass story that just popped up while having this conversation with my sister yesterday, I decided to give novel writing a shot once again. I know, I am lazy and procrastinate a lot when it comes to novels, but right now, I feel a lot enthusiastic. The story and plot is so close to my heart, I wish to complete it no matter how long it takes to put that last period! 🧡 . . Pray, pray, pray that there comes a day, when I close a notebook with satisfied smile. Ameen. Here’s to the future filled with characters, stories and obviously, writing! 📖 . . . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritersOnInstagram #WriterCommunityOfInstagram #InstaWriters #WriterFollowWriters #WordsOfWisdom #PoetsOfInstagram #PoetryCommunity #IWrite #Novel #PositiveVibesOnly #MotivationalWriting #AuthorsOfInstagram #PakWritersCommunity #NovelWriting

5 months ago

#ThoughtsOfAnOverthinker . . I have realized that one thing is usually common among all over-thinkers; and what is that? A constant need to find what other people think about them. An undying urge to be liked & loved by people. . There is always the nagging shame & guilt, if someone makes fun of them or passes judgement. They have this anxiety of being liked, and if someone fails to pay them attention, a rush of negative emotions overcome them. They are constantly analyzing on why someone said what they said? The need to be liked by all is a basic human nature, but people-pleasing and giving other’s opinion too much attention is not. So, what can we do to feel comfortable in our skin, & stop fearing remarks & judgements? . Over time, I have come to realize that you need to create a new mindset to evolve as a better person & to save yourself from this constant overthinking. Put your mind in perspective! We all our fighting our own demons & insecurities. Nobody has the time to think about you, so you should stop thinking about what they might feel about you! . . The thing that has worked best for me is when I let go of the idea of perfection. I am my own friend; my opinions can differ from each & every person out there. I can be wrong in what I think & do, but that does not mean I should back out till I don’t form a solid opinion. The day I realized that I am imperfect, allowed to make mistakes & do wrong in life is when I started letting go of what people think about me. I allowed myself to be vulnerable. I gave myself the liberty to be wrong, & to tell people when they are wrong, without fearing if I don’t make it to their ‘nice person’ list. . . I accepted my twinges, found what’s good & bad, and faced them with strength. You need to let go of the idea of an image that you can never be. The day you realize that your imperfections make you a perfect human is the day when you’ll let go of the judgements & people-pleasing that plague you! . .

Sisters who break the floor together (not literally, lol!) stay together. ❤️ . .

Sisters who break the floor together (not literally, lol!) stay together. ❤️ . . I don’t feel like writing any motivational stuff today, because I am brain dead. 😃 Sorry to all those who message me just to ask when I’ll be uploading the next post! . . So, where were we? I get distracted so easily. Lol. Yes, we were talking about breaking the floors, and by that I mean dance workouts. I have recently started doing Zumba with sisters at home, and it is such an enjoyable experience. You not only feel super-active, but it is fun to dance like a maniac with sisters too. In case, you are a person like me, who doesn’t like the usual workouts including the squats and stuff, Zumba is for you darlings! You can find the videos easily over the internet. Not just this, but you should do 1 mile ‘Leslie Walk’ daily if you are doing a desk job. It keeps you fresh & fit, and in shape. . . Not just the body, but your mind needs shaping as well. When stress and everyday anxiety gets way too much, do yoga and meditation. As above, you can easily find anti-stress yoga on YouTube. It really helps eliminate toxins out of your mind, and removes the dump and baggage that you carry along. My favourite is ‘Yoga With Adriene’ on YouTube, as it really helps me get through depressive episodes. . . We all look after physical health, but mental health is as important, so make yoga and meditation a part of your routine. Pair together with a sister or friend, and have some fun too. We laugh like crazies on stupid postures and moves, and that is what makes exercise interesting and releases every day stress too. That’s enough for today! But, I just remember, some daily-use apps and portals that help increase productivity, peace and mindfulness. That all, I will tell you in some other post. Till then, take care and lots of love! ❤️ . .

5 months ago

Sensitivity is considered a crime! We live in a world, where being sensitive is synonymous to being weak. We breathe among people who think that feeling too much means being extra emotional for no reason. . Sensitivity doesn’t mean you feel uselessly or your emotions are all over the place. There is nothing wrong in being sensitive. It means that you process the things around you with much more awareness than the people out there. These people are prone to understand every sort of problem with deep intensity, hence helping others out in more ways someone can imagine, and with more strength than what you think they are capable of. . Highly sensitive people look before they leap, which means they take their due time in understanding what’s happenings around them. They connect more with everything; nature, emotional problems, environmental issues, personal issues among peers and other people, in general. There are high chances that these people are going to be your listening ear, and will solve your problems if it is in their power to solve it. . Being sensitive is positive. Being sensitive is good! Sensitive people go above and beyond material things, aren’t hedonistic, and get to the crux of the emotions before reacting. . Sensitivity is one of those terms that have been blown out of the proportion and is extremely misunderstood by the society. Sensitivity shouldn’t scare you, lack of empathy should! . Much Love.

5 months ago

#ThoughtsOfAnOverthinker . One of the worst things about being an overthinker is that you fail to develop a single personality. You have multiple thoughts running in your head, & with each thought you develop an alter-ego that belongs to you, yet isn’t completely you. . . You need to understand that there is nothing wrong with having multiple shades of your soul. You just have to learn to control them. Then, why can’t you be yourself? Why can’t you be one person at one time? Why is it so difficult for you to wrap your mind around a single thought? . . What I have realized so far, & read in Mindfulness books, is you need to be aware of the present to eliminate excessive overthinking & to get rid of multiple personalities. Whenever you have to make a decision about small things like; Do I need to reply to this text, or should I call her or not? Don’t give yourself more than 30 seconds. You’re not going on a war that you have to spent ages deciding these simple things. You kill your productivity, & make yourself miserable over nothing. . For somewhat larger decisions that otherwise would have taken you weeks to think of, give yourself thirty minutes, an hour or a day at most. It depends on the intensity of the choices that you’re making. Don’t let your mind wander! Whenever you feel like you are zoning out, or thinking too much, or now is the time to come up with an answer, but you can’t; simply start writing the pros and cons of the decision you’re going to take. Believe me, you’ll get an answer miraculously. . . Nothing in life is hard, we make it hard! What seems like a mountainous task right now is nothing less than a play of thoughts. Don’t let your personalities play with you, play with them. Remember that there is nothing wrong in having multiple sides to yourself, if you know how to deal with them. Control your mind, till you don’t learn how it should control you! . .

I was recently listening to a TED talk on peace, which made me realize; is there more to our life than just seeking happiness and being happy? . I, for one, think that personal happiness and meaningfulness stems from a sense of belonging. When you start connecting with people who understand you, watch out for you, and are always there for you; you develop a sense of gratitude. . Belonging is when the people around you value you for who you are, inside and outside. This enhances your self-worth and makes you love life. In return, you start valuing people because you know their attention has helped you cultivate as a person and as an individual. . Being good to others and yourself is a personal choice that you make in life. Remember that happiness and positivity increases when you share it with the people around you. . Learn to spread it, one baby step at a time! ❤️ . . . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #WritersOfInstagram #WritersOnInstagram #WriterCommunityOfInstagram #WritingsOnInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #MicroTales #MicroPoetry #InstaWriters #WritersFollowWriters #WordsOfWisdom #AuthorsOfInstagram #PakWritersCommunity #PakistaniWriters #QOTD #POTD #BestOfTheDay #BBlogRT #InstaQuotes #StyleRepeats

- 25th June 2018 - . . We all are cog in a machine; getting up every morning and just passing this life, the way we think it is supposed to be. We all, and I include myself too, have a puzzling notion of life where we are so selfish that we aren’t able to get out of our miseries and sorrows. All we do throughout the day is lament on how sad our life is, how cruel people are or why we aren’t able to get something we wanted to have since so long. . I believe, none of us clearly understands what life is. We are so self-immersed, we have forgotten that life begins where you end thinking about yourself and wallowing in self-pity. When you realize that living means helping others, stopping judgemental remarks, ending unnecessary pain; you surpass your selfish self and start living for the people around you. This is what we all need to do! . To be happy, learn to keep others happy and to have self-peace, teach people how to develop one too. It is in these little acts of love and kidness that you will realize how blessed you are! . PS: With this message, I don’t portray that I am a saint. I am not at all near to being even good, but this is what I aim to do and help others do in everyday life. That’s all my brain dump for today.

A million years ago, an amazing fellow Instagrammer Glitter Gloss Garbage nominated me to post facts about me. I didn’t at that time; but, finally, here they are: . I am a 22-year Mass Communication & Advertising grad. . I am an introvert to the core & hate socialization. I get anxiety among a lot of people. Though I am confident & love giving presentations & hosting, but otherwise crowds are a big NO. . I am an old soul. Partying with friends have never been my thing. . I love writing. I believe that it can change lives. . My happy place is sitting by the sea or being alone in a peaceful place, just reading a novel or writing. . I love globe-trotting. I want to visit my favourite places all ALONE. Rome, Iceland and Greece are in my bucket list. . I have like a total of one person in my life who I only tell half of my problems to; my sister! . I scarcely watch movies or TV shows. My only entertainment is reading a 400 page novel in one day. I do this almost every weekend. . I wrote two manuscripts. TWO NOVEL MANUSCRIPTS, and I threw them away. Just my level of insanity. . I want to write a poetry collection of my own. Someday, I will. In Sha Allah. . I hate chocolates, cakes, and icecreams. However, I can even eat raw green chillies. . I want to be a TED speaker. I swear, I have thousand motivational talks already prepared. I listen to TED talks for hours, whenever I feel down. . I am a strong advocate of mental health, child abuse, women issues, social problems & depression. I try my best to help people who are going through them, and for future I have big plans. In Sha Allah. . I am your best shoulder whenever you want to cry on and if you have secrets, you can always rely on me. . I am EXTREMELY moody and get annoyed easily. I try to overcome this a lot. However, I can never hold any grudges & have forgiven people who did the worst to me. . I cry ALOT. I feel too much for people, so I even cry on their behalf. . Shopping is my caffeine. . . . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritersOnInstagram #WriterCommunityOfInstagram #WritersFollowWriters #PoetsOfInstagram #PositiveVibesOnly #AuthorsOfInstagram #InstaWriter

6 months ago

People around you might tell you to stop over-reacting & wasting your time over nothing. You might say the same to yourself. But, if you want these constant thoughts to stop, you need to REALIZE! There is nothing wrong in being an overthinker; accept it and try to remedy it. It’s not just overthinking but most of us tend to question ourselves a lot. This shatters our confidence in what we do in our everyday lives. We destroy our happiness and peace by persistent questioning! Stop with the ‘Why’! I know it is easy to say, but hard to do. . Whenever you feel that your mind is constantly asking you questions, bothering & and taking you to that endless torment of self-hurt, start answering your own questions. . Why am I the one who has to face disappointments? No, I am not the only one. This is how the world works. You face defeat, you fall & you force yourself to get up. I have to get up now and tell myself; yes I faced defeat, but I am way braver than sulking over it. . Why can’t I stay happy? Because, I don’t allow myself to be! I don’t allow my mind to free space from these negative thoughts. I don’t encourage my brain to flush the toxins, & feel alive for at least once. I have everything that is needed to be happy, but I am not allowing myself to make use of them. . Don’t think of yourself as the third-person. Acknowledge the self-harm that you are inflicting by constantly questioning yourself. Now start answering these questions one by one. I know, it is extremely hard. I know, because I am also there. But, this is the only solution. Take baby steps; one at a time. One question at a time. Start writing down your thoughts, and answer them, so you can go back and read when you are down. Take this step, have faith on yourself. Realize that you want to live happy, & the first step towards that happiness is to live in the moment, & answering all your insecurities & whys!. . . . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritersOnInstagram #WritingsOnInstagram #WriterCommunityOfInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #InstaWriter #InstaPoet #WritersFollowWriters #PakistaniWriter #AuthorsOfInstagram #WordsOfWisdom

Hello y’all! How is Eid going? Your girl played ‘Khatron K Khiladi’ today. Lol! I dared to cut my hair short after nearly a decade. Yes, a decade! 🙈 First things first, I am so done with @jystylestudio’s unprofessionalism. We were given the appointment for 3 today, and when we reached the salon; lo and behold, it was closed! What the hell was that? I have no idea why such a reputable place will do this to their clients. So, for me, neither am I ever going to such a pathetic salon & nor will I let anyone I know, go there like EVER! . . Shukar, Mehreen from #FashionLive became the saving grace and suggested @neelos_salon for this emergency hair cut. I can’t be happier! Raj, who did my haircut, was a sweetheart. She put up with our constant badgering and tanturms. I will absolutely recommend her and Neelos for all those who want to avail any hair service. 5/5 for everything! Loved, loved, loved the experience. ❤️ . . Right now, it has been two hours since I came back from the salon and I have been standing in front of the mirror since then. Talk about self-obsession?! Lol. . . Finally I got to step out of home at Eid. Lol. This was it for today. Bye.

Chand Raat Mubarak and Eid Mubarak in advance you all! I don’t intend to get dressed up and post tomorrow, so this will have to do for the next two days! 🙈 Stay happy, keep others others happy. Smile, and make others smile too this Eid! You spent one month controlling your desires and kept a tap on your wishes, so you deserve to party the next three days. 😁 Don’t forget to include everyone around you in the celebrations. Put your egos aside, respect the sanctity of Eid and wish all those people who you aren’t talking to or have lost touch with. Don’t forget to make unprivileged people happy too. Keep all those people in your thoughts and prayers who are suffering, and aren’t able to enjoy Eid the same way you do. Pray for the deceased. Console those who lost a loved one this year, because these three days won’t be the same for them. Enough with the lecture now! 😁 Move past your joy and think about keeping other happy too. It is all about giving, so you have a peace of mind too. And by keeping others happy here, I mean giving them lots of Eidi too. 🙈 Get dressed, and slay the day y’all. Meanwhile, do give me suggestions on how to kill my time tomorrow. Any ideas on how to make my Eid first day, itsy bitsy interesting? 🙈😂 . . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritersOnInstagram #WritingsOnInstagram #WriterCommunityOfInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #InstaWriter #InstaPoet #WritersFollowWriters #PakistaniWriter #PakWritersCommunity #AuthorsOfInstagram #EidMubarak #POTD #BestOfTheDay #Eid18 #WordsOfWisdom

‘An open letter to my mother in heaven.’ . I celebrated my birthday two days ago, it was my first birthday after your death. A first among all the firsts that we are living right now; first Mothers Day, first Ramazan, first Birthday, first Eid. . . It feels so strange yet liberating to write this letter, knowing that you’ll never be able to read it. Pyaari Maa, it felt so wrong to even think about celebrating my birthday without you. Now that you are no more, this one day made me understand your importance more than anything else. . Since 16th October 2017, I have been in peace with the idea that you are not here anymore. You are not here to console me, laugh at me, be mad at me, be proud of me & to do all those selfless motherly acts that you used to do for me. I felt so shattered when I didn’t receive any call at 4 on 11th June. It was a tradition for you to call me at exact 4 to wish birthday along with the dozens of prayers for a blessed life. It was such a cute bond that we had; where every year on this particular date, at this particular time, wherever you or I were, you had to remind me that I was born in an intense heat. . Ana, I kept looking at my phone from 4 to rest of the day, hoping against the hope that it is going to ring & I am going to hear your voice once more. I smiled all day, but only ALLAH knows I wanted to cry like a baby. I can give up this world to hear you say my name for one, last time. . . With every day that I pass without you, I feel proud of the legacy that you have left behind & despair that I am not even close to becoming the super human that you were. All I want in life is to be YOU, to be the woman that inspired crowds and whose death shook people even countries away. . . To the woman who showed me what a woman is, I love you & miss you! ❤️ . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritersOnInstagram #WriterCommunityOfInstagram #WannabeWriter #InstaWriter #PoetsOfInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #WritersFollowWriters #PoetrySociety #PositiveVibesOnly #MicroTales #QOTD #InstaQuotes #QuoteOfTheDay #PakWritersCommunity #WordsOfWisdom #AuthorsOfInstagram

I always say this, and will continue saying; it doesn’t take a lot to smile just so that you can keep others happy. We are living in an extremely narrow and stress-driven world. Sometimes the energy in others is what motivates us to forget our problems, tensions, sorrows and worries and cheers us up. Live in the moment, and forget what is to come, because present is your own and the future will always be unknown. So, instead of sulking over the dreadful uncertainty, find and enjoy the peace you have right now, in this very moment. Also, don’t forget to say cheese whenever the chance be! 🙈😂 . . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritersOnInstagram #WriterCommunityOfInstagram #WannabeWriter #PoetsOfInstagram #WritersFollowWriters #PakistaniWriters #AuthorsOfInstagram #MicroPoetry #PositiveVibesOnly #Love #WordsOfWisdom #WordsToLiveBy #MicroTales
