BlogChatter A2Z Challenge Day 18 – Reduce the Baggage

This post could be your Passport to Salvation!! (wait do I sound like a braggart? hope not ๐Ÿ™‚ )

Reduce the Baggage

On the 18th Day of BlogChatterA2Z Writing Challenge, let us do some mental exercise. Let us togetherย inhale all the possibilities and fill our lungs with the enormous potential of a healthy life and let us exhale all the toxicityย of our life by slowly releasing all the pain and disturbance we have been holding on within ourselves for years.

Virtual Siyahi

Throughout our life, we carry a lot of baggage with ourselves, unnecessarily. The baggage of expectations, the baggage of grudges, the baggage of anger and baggage of lots of emotions, only wanting to drop it at the very end of our journey. The solution lies in not having conflicts but in resolving them as soon as one can. How long is too long and what is the dead end?

  • So why not resolve all the conflicts within before we head towards our final destination.
  • Take quick action on what truly matters.
  • We spend more time thinking and thus create more negativities around us.
  • A lot of people know what is needed to be done at that moment, but donโ€™t do anything about it.
  • While youโ€™re caught up in what you think you cannot escape out of it.

In relationships, if you had some bad incidents, you start to distance yourself from those, once you have truly loved or appreciated. A certain mismatch of ideologies are bound to happen in any relationship but we just stop communicating and we start thinking that we no longer cherish the company of that person but the fact is we do not agree with a particular dominant thought of that person which could be just ignored in a positive manner, but we choose to move away.

ย Letting go ofย grudgesย helps you sleep better.

Holding ontoย resentmentย causes stress.

The problem lies in the thought process of the person and not with the person. This understanding helps you to unburden the bitterness you carry for someone once you cherished being with.

Why do we have to wait for that last moment, when the thought still keeps on knocking our subconscious mind every now and then, pointing that things would have been different if I would have handled the given situation in a certain manner, why not take a call, right now? So many ifs, buts, whys, hows just to for a silly reason which might get worked out if we speak ou once.

Kehte hai na, Baat karne se hi baat banti koshish karne mein harz kya hai janab..Baat bani to thik, nahi to shukriya, alvida aur adab.

Before life gives up on you… Take that call, unburden yourself, reduce the baggage one by one, before your final call and live as a free soul!

Much love and gratitude

  1. This is such a needed post Priyanka, I think this is something we all must do and reduce our load. Pata nai Kahan kahan ki baatein ek bhojh ki tarah hum log Apne andar saman ke bethe hain, that’s too much for just one life

  2. Less the baggage more comfortable is the journey. Same goes with life. You have gathered everything that needs to be said about unnecessary baggage and the burden associated with it.

  3. One of the best ways to let go is to sit back at the end of the day and think about the most distressing moments of that day. Then I erase the moment from the canvas of my memory and replace it with things as I would have loved them to be. It gives me hope and the courage to realise what I want.

  4. We need to take the positive vibes and exhale toxicity inside us.Agree we need not hold on to emotions afflicting us and one friend told me all emotions carry purpose but important is how to flush them out. You’ve given some valuable tips.

  5. You know I am one of the those people who take a strong interest in politics and off-late many of my friends seem to be having very different political opinions. We used to be very close friends but these differences in political opinions have crept in and many friends parted ways. But later I called up a few friends and we had a heart to heart chat and we realized that our political opinions need not interfere with out relationships and we have renewed our association and we just don’t talk politics any more. This has brought our friendshp back to what it was like earlier and we get on just fine. You are right in saying it is the opinion we differ with, we have nothing against the person himself.

    1. Wow!! Amazing example given by you, which justifies my phrase Baat karne se hi baat banti hai na..Your experience and views always add value to my posts and such feedbacks makes me feel more confident about what I am trying to share in these 26 days of writing. Thanks a lot.

  6. I love your quote, Shut down the doors which lead you to nowhere. This is a big takeaway from this post asit is so true and something we must all learn to do. Another post by you that resonated with me and I just loved reading!

    1. Thank you so much Mayuri, you always read and your feedback provides so much encouragement to write more , I just love the way you are exploring the city and your way of presentation and detailing makes me think about visiting Chennai once and could refer your blog as the Google Map ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. It would be so good if we could throw or lose our unwanted mental baggages. But we cannot lose our physical baggage that easy, unless it is stolen. Trying throwing your suitcase, someone will return it or worse a police may claim it had a bomb. Mental baggages are even more difficult to rid of. One has to always stay in the present to avoid past incidences.

  8. Again a great post. I think it is very important to let go off the mental baggage. It only helps us to build better relationships.

  9. I carry a lot of emotional baggage despite the fact that I realize how it keeps weighing on me. I guess it has a lot to do with my mother’s sudden demise. For the past few years, I have always gone back to that devastating night to find how else I could have stopped losing her. After Tuneer was born, I channeled a lot of my pain in showering love on him. It was like I was compensating for the absence of a maternal grandmother in his life. I am still trying to let go of such baggage.

    1. I am so sorry Sonia, if this post touched your sentiments. I cannot even imagine the emotional baggage you must be carrying with you…Maa and child is inseparable and nothing can fill that vaccum it builds around one but now you have Tuneer and you are going to be an awesome mom, which you already are ๐Ÿ’œlots of love and hugs to you

  10. Removing the baggage outside, great post. reducing the load will surely reduce stress, loved the post.
    Take the call and unburden… my motto for now.

  11. You echo my mind in most of your posts dear. Itโ€™s such a pleasure to know about your soul twin.The practice that you have asked us to do today, is what I thrive on ๐Ÿค—

  12. Meaningful quote ‘Shut down the door which lead you to no where’. One can feel light and comfortable in this journey of life only when one learns to leave the unnecessary baggage timely. An important life lesson indeed!

  13. Exactly. No point in carrying bad emotions along, they only slow your own progress in journey called life. If someone has wronged you, understand that ‘ we all are humans’ and ‘To err is human’ .Forgive…and leave the baggage right there.

  14. I needed this so much Priyanka…
    I have been keeping my silence in recent times.. Sahi hai ki bath karne se hi bath banthi hai.. but kisse bath kare is sawal ka jawab dundthe dundthe waqt nikal jatha hai…

      1. Frustration bahut buri cheez hai janthe huwe bi control me nahi rehtha..
        I just hope everyday is not the same..

      2. I did and u know it made a huge difference between the mindset i had when i was writing and the same when I finished it..
        When you have time do read….

  15. I learned to let go off things over my chest in the last 1 year, I realized it was affecting my peace of mind and I turned out to be peevish person totally. I can’t thank my husband enough for this transition in me. Loved loved this post, Priyanka.

Your comments make my day ๐Ÿ’œ
