REPOST OF THE DAY @thewriterandhermuse THANKS FOR THIS AMAZING PICTURE This’s a letter from me to you! This’s an open conversation from my soul to yours. This’s a raw bunch of feelings from my heart to yours. I know, I know how you struggle through every day. I know, the battles you have fought and the scars they have left behind. I know, how you pick yourself up at times only to be broken behind. I might not have been there but I have seen or heard you at the times when you were at your most vulnerable. I wasn’t there to stop you or told you otherwise but I know there were times when your brain told you to end it all and your heart told you to let it go. I understand how you cried yourself to sleep every night. I feel the pain you felt when you were alone and had no one to resort to. This is a letter from me to every other person who lives and breathes through the complexity of this life. This is an open conversation from my heart to the heart of all those who have been broken to the extent that they felt their entire existence tearing to the core. If you’ve lived through it, you can live through anything else. Your belief, your strength and courage are something admirable. You might feel alone, broken or coward at times, but never allow these feelings to overshadow your true existence. It’s okay to be vulnerable, but surviving these situations is the sign of courage and not weakness. You are a beacon of hope for a lot of people out there. You don’t know that now and you might never believe it, but I look up to you. Because, it is due to the people like you, I survived through the worsts of my time. Have you ever wondered why we tell people to pray when the stars fall out of the sky? Just wonder and ponder over it! It leaves the comfort and its happy place, but still leaves behind a trail of light for us to pray upon. You are the same. You might not believe it now, but YOU ARE THE SAME! You are who we take strength and inspiration from. Stay the same. #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritingsOnInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #BossBabe #TravelDiaries #BucketlistTravels #Wanderlust #SoloTravels #GirlsWhoTravel #T

4 days ago

I am sure most of you all must have already read this famous quote: Some of us are born lucky while others are born fighters. Ain’t this true? I know people who have been supremely lucky in their lives. Don’t get me wrong, but I am always super happy for those who get things easily. However, I don’t think this is something to brag about. What counts really as something is the fact those who aren’t served with achievements easily are the actual fighters. They learn to fight for all the things they want and end up getting them. Luck can only take you so far and it is the strength and enthusiasm that makes people ultimate winners. So, this one is for all those who think luck, isn’t by their side. All those people who think their fate has been sealed tightly with bad luck. Here’s the good news. You, my friend, are a real warrior and you should be proud of it. You have the chance to write your own fate and destiny. I am sure you aren’t going to get it all on a silver platter, but it is your chance to make a place for yourself. In a world, which brags about getting things through luck, the real lucky people are those who know how to fight to reach their destination. This is something to brag about. YOU made your way. YOU found your destiny. YOU invested your blood, sweat and tears to achieve what you wanted. YOU are the person who has struggled to taste the fruit of success. The next time you are envious of people who got it all through luck, pat yourself on the back with a head held high. You know why? Because, you know what it takes to struggle through every step of life and your win will definitely be worth it. Just hold onto it. #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritingsOnInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #QOTD #TravelDiaries #BucketlistTravels #Wanderlust #SoloTravels #PakWritersCommunity #BossBabe #TravelGoals

#BrokenGirlsAreWarriors No, it isn’t about someone who you had a romantic connection with, leaving you behind. It is about each & every person, any & every place that you had your heart attached to. It is about all those times when you sincerely put your trust on people, only to be left broken. But, you my darling, are a girl and that defines it all. We have learned to blossom into warriors with time. We know how to pick our pieces when someone left us completely broken behind. So, you might feel a lot of pain right now and you might feel that nothing will ever be the same and you won’t be able to get the happiness you deserve. But, this is all momentary. Focus on your growth, focus on building yourself and thrive on all the energy that boils inside you. For, when the time may come, each and every person who left you hollowed will come back to you and look up to the strength & endurance you developed with time. Hold on to your pride and integrity till then! #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritingsOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #QOTD #BossBabe

1 week ago

Just recently, I went to meet a very close friend and in the midst of discussing something personal which was bugging me, I realized I get attached to people & places very easily. To be honest, it takes a bit of efforts for me to accept this, because this one topic has been a bone of contention between me and my sister & all the people who know me inside-out. It is very hard being a person who is connected to everyone & everything emotionally & by heart. I am sure more than half of you can relate to it. While I initially thought of it as a good thing, but in the recent past, it has proved to be the biggest weakness of mine. Lets just accept that it isnt right for us and our mental well-being to get attached to places and people, who belong to them, very easily. When you think about leaving people, it breaks you to the core. When you think about leaving places, it makes you think you are making the biggest decision of your life. So, tell your heart not to get connected to those places and things which arent going to be there forever. Give a piece of yourself to only those who are going to keep it forever. Cherish only those places that understand your worth and nourish you. Do not love those who will break your heart. Do not desire something you cannot get. Do not feel attached to people who you had no connection to. On top of all, keep your heart & mind open for all the possibilities and love you can get, but do not let it break. For, you have a heart that is fragile, but it carries the most amount of love and affection inside. #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritingsOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #QOTD #TravelDiaries #Wanderlust #Bucketlist #BucketlistTravels #BossBabe #TravelGoals #SoloTravels

You know what hurts us the most? Looking back! Looking back at all the things we could have achieved. Looking back at the opportunities we should have availed. Looking back at the times when we should have been happy, but we were busy sulking at something completely irrational. Looking back at the people we should have cherished. Looking back at the moment and times when we could have been just living the moment. Face the stark reality. What’s done is done & what’s gone is gone. It isn’t coming back. You can’t live it again or you can’t take it back. You can’t reverse the decisions made either. All of us have this ‘humanly’ habit of looking back at all the could have & should have been, when in real there is nothing like the present. The past doesn’t have the capability to come back, and that’s all due to a reason. The reason is that you learn, you grow and you thrive with experiences. If you don’t understand the importance of taking every step with caution, live every experience and value every memory, you simply won’t be living the life. So, don’t fret over what’s gone, because it isn’t coming back. Just learn from the mistakes and move on. Let the past live in the past, or there will be no life in the future. #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritingsOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #QOTD #TravelDiaries #Wanderlust #Bucketlist #BucketlistTravels #BossBabe #TravelGoals #SoloTravels

2 weeks ago

You’re going to be fine. You’re going to be okay! What seems like miles and miles of ocean or stretched patches of sand in endless dessert is just a journey to a beautiful future. It is so hard for us to be positive and optimistic when nothing is working out the way we want. That’s completely understandable. All of us have different thresholds of tolerance and everyone of us has different ways to overcome what life throws our way. And that’s completely fine. If someone around you is braver than you that does not mean you are a coward. That only means that you aren’t as brave as they are. Don’t try to find hidden meaning and do not berate yourself. I know what it feels to be in the crowd and be lost in it. I know what it feels to be enjoying every little moment you are living and yet feeling incomplete. When I can understand this, I can very well understand how you don’t feel you have a future. So, let’s reach an understanding here together. Breathe! You won’t miraculously change your life in a day and there are possibly no chances of you waking up tomorrow with a warm, fuzzy feeling in your heart. I accept that. But, there will come a time when the ghosts that haunt and the demons that eat you will slowly start to diminish. Till then, you’ll hold on to the hope that’s lying somewhere deep inside. Now promise me, promise me that you’ll just keep on holding it till you wake up one day and actually feel optimism from within. Storms and tornadoes subside eventually. I don’t see how pain won’t leave you after all you have gone through. I promise, hold onto that. #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritingsOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #QOTD #BossBabe #TravelGoals #

Courage isnt about doing things unthinkable. It is about doing things that seem trivial to people, but are a mountain for you. You see, we have set such stupid boundaries for courage and bravery that we ignore what it actually means. Courage is, when you force yourself to get out of bed, even when you dont want to. Courage is, laughing at a joke when you cant even comprehend what it meant. Courage is, going about your day like nothing happened when there is a turmoil going inside you. Courage is, when you sleep every night with a hope for the new beginnings ahead. You understand what courage is now? It isnt in the bravest of the tasks, but it is in braving your mind and soul. It is in realizing that you are combating something people dont know and youre fighting your own demons. It is in the realization that you dont have to be exceptionally intrepid to prove something to the world. It is residing in the reality that you need your time to build your life anew & start it afresh. If you understand and believe this, congratulations! This is what COURAGE is! #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritingsOnInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #WritersFollowWriters #Depression #Yoga #Stress #Anxiety #Tension #Workout #StayHealthy #Meditation #SelfHelp #BossBabe #PositiveVibesOnly #PakWritersCommunity #MentalHealth

4 weeks ago

The first step towards self-love and happiness that you can take is realizing that YOU have to be there to pick yourself, without expecting someone else to do it for you. We are humans, so as with all the other humans, we expect people to be around to pick us up when we fall, cheer us up when we don’t feel the need to even smile, and to hold us through the hardships of life. There’s nothing wrong with tying your hopes to a person. This’s the cycle of living and this is how life works. You create a problem when you underestimate yourself. At the end of the day, while everyone around us constitute the support system we need, the strength comes from within. Your self-worth is way more than any other thing in the world. Understand that and walk out when you don’t get that from the people around you, because there’s no one stronger than the person who knows how to keep his worth and head held high against all the odds. #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritingsOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #IGPoets #MicroTales #MicroPoetry #InspirationalQuotes #QOTD #MotivationalQuotes #WritersFollowWriters #PakWritersCommunity

I have heard a lot that misfortunes, miseries or love makes you an artist. Though this is something I strongly vouch for, I believe there’s a particular talent hidden in all of us that ignites out at the time of need or utmost desperation. When we go through any ill-times in life, we resort to everything we can, to help us out of the vicious cycle of self-deprecation we’re suffering from. This includes finding out what we have deep inside us. While some of us become writers, the others may become poets, painters, or so on. However, I personally feel that the introspection is mandatory at all times. You don’t need to wait for the perfect moment or heartbreak to bring out the side of you the world doesn’t know. When you’ve something that differentiates you from others or makes you who you are, don’t wait for the right time or perfect opportunity to avail it. Just trust the instinct and let it be. Understand who you are, and define yourself on your own. Don’t let the situations and particular moments in life overrule you as who YOU are! #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritingsOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #IGPoets #MicroTales #MicroPoetry #InspirationalQuotes #QOTD #MotivationalQuotes #WritersFollowWriters #PakWritersCommunity #SpilledInk #WritersDen

I wish I could take the sadness away from your heart and replace it with happiness and warmth. I wish I can restore the faith you have lost in love. I wish I can kill the demons that haunt you every night and give way to optimism and spring for the future. I wish I can shred away every last ounce of self-doubt and anxiety you have with hope, love and everything you deserve. I wish, I can make you see the mirror that exactly shows who you are, how strong you have been and how beautifully you have encountered every obstacle and hardships life has thrown your way. I hope, I can give you the power to see yourself through my eyes. More than that, I believe you haven’t come this far to get disappointed with life even more. People like you are hard to find, the resilience like you is hard to have, the faith like you is unbelievable to hold on to, the courage that you hide within is insurmountable. Above all, I pray you get all those things this world made you wait for.

1 month ago

We seek for love at places, but we forget it lies deep inside us. As humans, we want affection, love and constant attention. Thats totally okay, because this is how we nurture and grow into our best selves. However, stop looking for love in places and people, when you havent even learnt how to love yourself. The first step of self-growth and introspection is to find the love you have buried deep inside yourself and nurture it. When you love yourself, you will realize how beautiful the world is, you will be grateful for the life you have been bestowed with. No amount of negativity will be able to influence you. We expect people to love us blindly, but no one will ever be able to love you till you dont love yourself. Even if you have people around you who love you without any strings attached, you need to love yourself selflessly first. Remember that you blossom and grow from within. Let your inner shine, sparkle and lead the way. All else will follow! Much love. #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #WritersFollowWriters #PositiveVibesOnly #MotivationalBlogging #MotivationalSpeaker #BossBabe #Mindfulness #MentalHealth #MentalHealthBlogger #PakWritersCommunity #KarachiBloggers #SelfHelp

We’re all in the same boat; loving and waiting to be loved. There’s a child inside every one of us that’s extremely giving and hungry to get it back. We all need love, nourishment and validation. There’s no purpose in restricting yourself from it. You shouldn’t feel incompetent or desperate if you need this support to get you through the day. It is being instilled in us that asking for love and support is something weak people do. That’s bullshit! Those who aren’t capable of spreading the positivity and love will be the ones you will find saying this. Leave the table where respect, love and support isn’t served. This’s no place for you to spend or waste your energy. When the time is right, you’ll find the people who’ll be your tribe. This doesn’t necessarily mean romantically, but they can be anyone - family you were never close to, the friends you never thought you’ll ever be friends with and that special someone who’ll just complete the way you are. Till then, hold onto yourself and your self-esteem and don’t let people tell you that demanding love & craving support and attention is demeaning. If you won’t feel these, I hardly believe there’s a living, breathing human inside you! #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #MicroTales #MotivationalBlogging #MotivationalQuotes #QOTD #PositiveVibesOnly #BossBabe #SelfHelp #Depression #Yoga #Anxiety #Workout #MentalHealth #PakistaniBlogger #KarachiBlogger #PakWritersCommunity #Mindfulness #MentalHealthBlogger

Today, almost every person on social media shared their New Year Resolutions, how their past year went and what they expect the coming year to be. I decided to share mine a bit differently, by telling yall the regrets I have for the year and how I intend to change them in the year to come. I spent too much time anxious, worrying over what life has in store for me. Spending an entire year in anxiety has taught me that whats happened to be will be, so theres no purpose in killing myself over it. Being too real with people around me. I have always been honest about myself to the core. You ask me a question about my personal life, and I tell you the answer then and there. This has led my heart and trust to be broken like a million times. Guess, who learned her lesson this year! I cared about others too much. I overtired myself to please others and help them. While helping is what keeps me energetic, I think I need to see if in future I want to stop myself at places where I am getting exhausted too much in the process. Working too much, but not on what I wanted. Yes, I was productive in terms of a lot I wanted to get done, but I overworked to the point that the things I really wanted to get done in the past year took a back seat. So, I expect, 2019 to be more about the work I want to do for myself, checking my dreams and items off the bucket list. I didnt enjoy the life the way I should. While I am super happy I went for a vacation and loved every second of it, but I didnt enjoy the year as I should have. While my early 20s are slipping away, I feel I have spent so much time on worrying that I am going to regret it in the years to come. So, no more this year. I have all the plans in the world to just live it away this time. #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #WritersFollowWriters #PositiveVibesOnly #MotivationalBlogging #MentalHealth #SelfHelp #HealthTips

People say pain makes you a writer. I say, it gives & takes much more than that. Dont accredit something youre good at to the pain that seared into your heart and soul. This pain gives you an insight that million years cannot combine to give you, but a little thrash to your heart can do just that. When you experience something bad, it is when you realize that you have to channel your energy to run away from your own mind. This is the reason, most of the people end up becoming writers, novelists, poets, artists, painters, musician, etc. when they face any drawback in life. This is when they realize the talent that was hidden inside them all along. Because, when you are in pain, you have a lot of time to think who you are, what you are good at, what’s your salvation and what can help you get through the hellhole you’re in. Only give the credit where due. Pain makes you stronger, pain gives you perspective, pain gives you heartache, pain gives you experience, and a lot more. It changes you as a person, but it doesnt alter who you are. The searing pain is just an outlet for all the energy that was hidden inside you, but only got tapped when you paid attention to it. Pain is bad, but only if you allow the bad part to take over. How you let it rule your life is the decision thats all yours. #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WriterCommunityOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #MicroTales #MicroPoetry #IWrite #MotivationalQuotes #MotivationalBlogging #QOTD #PositiveVibesOnly #BossBabe #MentalHealth #InspirationalQuotes #InspoQuotes

When you talk to someone who is suffering from clinical depression, you are treading along the line very carefully. You dont know the moment they can lapse. You dont know at what time they decide to give up on this world. You dont know which statement might cause them to decide their life isnt worth living anymore. If my writings have helped me get so much support and love, they have opened my eyes to the realities too. I have always said that my DM is open to anyone and everyone who wants to talk it out. But, I have never shared the effect it has on me. I have never told anyone how I feel when a certain someone tells me they want to kill themselves and then out of the blue they stop replying. I stay awake at nights thinking I might have said something wrong and if the person is okay or not. Having said that, depression is a REAL disease. The disease that needs treatment other than 5 waqt ki namazein. Please, please seek professional help before it gets out of hands. People like us can only help you so much. We arent trained, we dont know what might hurt you even further. Your life and health is much more important and precious than the judgments you fear.

I DONT FEEL LIKE WRITING ANYMORE! There, I said it out loud. Yes, it is so strange to even my own ears. I picked up the pen about 5 years ago, and there has been no pause since then. Similarly, I developed the habit of reading around the same time. I devour a 400-page book in a day. But, from quite some time, these two things I love have left me completely. I dont know the stupid reason either. I wont write a 400-word motivational post here that I cant feel myself. As stupid it might sound, whatever I write here, I put my heart into it and really believe that it has an impact. So, I think it is time I take a break (deactivate this account, maybe?) till I get back to the spirit once again.

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

Do you ever feel the happiness is temporary? Do you ever feel whatever good is h
4 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. Appreciate! . . . . . . . . #TheWriterAndHerMuse #KainaatMaqbool #WritersOfInstagram #WritersOnInstagram #WriterCommunityOfInstagram #PoetsOfInstagram #PoetryCommunityOfInstagram #PositiveVibesOnly #MotivationalBlogging #SelfHelp #Stress #Depression #Anxiety #MotivationalQuotes #MentalHealth

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

4 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.

Why dont you try telling a girl, she is positive because she infuses you with energy, every time you feel like giving up? Why dont you tell a girl, she is brave because she has overcome unimaginable hurdles and still go through some more every day with a huge smile on her face? Why dont you tell a girl, she is resourceful because she hacked through the tasks you would have otherwise spent hours pondering over? Why dont you tell a girl, she is assertive, athletic, resourceful, resilient, creative, imaginative, patient, unique and a lot more. Why dont you define a girl, the way she must be defined? Why some girls want to be described through the beauty and not the traits? Dont compliment me by telling me how I look, rather tell me how I add value to everyones life around me.

5 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

5 months ago

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

6 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
6 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
6 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

6 months ago

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! ❤️ . .

. #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! ❤️ . . .

Ever wondered why you aren’t getting something that you are trying too hard for? You have the answer, because you know it deep down! . . 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.

We are so obsessed with body shape that we have destroyed the confidence of God
7 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

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! ❤️ . .
