Letters of Compassion -Humanity Ki Chain Extended

Hi,

Hope you all are doing well!

What could be better than to start the year with going back to basics, I mean come on we are already in 2020 and I guess this year will bring a lot of positivity and great things in our lives, atleast that is what we can hope by spreading the humanity ki chain and being a part of it.

Besides, what we as a society, as humans can do for each other to make this world a better place to live in? As many of you know that I write a lot about mental health awareness and in lieu to spread some more awareness I had started with an initiative last year named; Humanity Ki chain.

Idea behind Humanity ki Chain

Humanity ki chain is a mental health awareness series currently running on my Youtube channel (Virtual Siyahi) the idea behind starting this series was to enable people to talk about mental illness, it’s importance and why is it important to talk about mental health.

I was way to skeptical thinking who would join me, but I have this habit of following my instincts and go ahead with my idea. It worked! I have posted NINE episodes in the series and I am planning to keep it ongoing as and when I recieve guest videos.

The format of the series is such that anyone sitting from anyewhere in the world could become a part of this Humanity ki chain by simply recording few minutes of video expressing their views about Mental Health.

I am someone who don’t go behind the numbers, numbers such as followers, subscribers or views, I look for meaningful connections and the long-lasting ones. It takes time to form that everlasting bond with someone you don’t know but I have all the patience and perseverance it takes to take that step 🙂

So with all the love and support I get from you people, I have come up something which I call a “Letters of Compassion” lettering series, an extended part of Humanity Ki Chain. Where in every month I will be writing (handwritten) letters to three people who are connected with me through this virtual world in return of an answer to a simple question, Why should I write to you? In the end it is all about forming connections and bringing back the lost personal touch.

So, I am starting with my blog first and with my fellow bloggers first, here I ask my first; Why Should I Write to You? Write in comment or you can DM me at Instagram or email me (virtualsiyahi@priyankaspen.com). I will wait for you answers and I will pick three out of you every month and we will be in touch.

For now I have restricted this lettering series to Indian residents only and in future with your love and support, I do plan to extend it worldwide.

Let’s make 2020 all about better mental health and quality of life through simple and connecting gestures. Stay healthy. Stay sane.

Much love and much gratitude

Tanhaiyaa/तन्हाईयाँ

होति क्या हैं यह तन्हाईयाँ

महज़ एक एहसास ही तो है

किसीका प्यार पाने की आस ही तो है

एक खालीपन एक अनसुना साज़ ही तो है

तेरा होके भी न होना

तेरी बातो में मेरा ज़िक्र न होना

तेरी यादो में मेरी फिक्र न होना

येसब रुस्वयीओं का आगाज़ ही तो है

जब कभी आईने में खुदको तराशते है तो सोचते है की आखिर हममे कमी क्या है रह गयी
यु टूटकर चाह कर भी आँख में नमी क्यों रह गयी,

वो तो अपनी ज़िन्दगी में बड़े मशरूफ है और हम है की हमे दो कदम उनके बिना चलना भी नहीं आता

6 demons we face every day

We all survived another year!! A big pat on our back 🙂

We get one life which we want to live to the fullest, to earn name, money, have beautiful relationships, successful career, big house, big car and what not. From the day we are born till the day we breathe our last breath, we work, we struggle, we fall, we get up and we get going all the time.

When we are happy, we see positive in everything around us and appreciate all good things but when we are sad, we go into self-doubt, anger, anxiety, depression, nagging and witness so many emotions. What are those recurring negative emotions we face or many times we fall prey for and what impact do they create in our life? I call them demons of our daily life and I am trying to make some points here, hope it is relatable.

Assumptions

We never like to admit that we might be wrong in understanding things, and we pretend that we do understand things exactly, but we are often wrong. We assume things quickly, we weave stories in our mind which anyone could believe but when one speaks the real truth nobody even cares. By simply looking at anyone’s status updates on Social Media we assume so many things about a person, we hardly realize what that person might be going through in their real life. We assume things one never said, we assume a situation which never happened, we just create a mountain of a mole hill and believe in its existence.

Anxiety

We are dealing with so much in our lives to win this battle, to stay in the game. We lose our control at times, we break down, we feel exhausted and we panic, which not only hampers our productivity but our mental health as well. There is a very thin line in between you sane and insane mind that very moment when you feel the situation is taking a toll over you, take ten steps back from that very situation, shut down, stay quiet, stay low key. You won’t miss out anything in life, but continuous nagging with the present situation leaves us rattling inside our mind.

Judgement

People have their reasons to follow a path, to choose a relationship, a career or any choices they make for themselves in their life. We often judge others on the basis of their choices, on their lifestyle etc. When we don’t even know what a person is going through in his life, how can we simply pass a judgment merely being a spectator? I am also guilty of this sin, but I got to learn my lesson and I am not going to repeat them. The world needs little more kindness and a little less judgment.

Validation

Seeking validation will keep you trapped. We are always seeking validation from others for our very own self, for our physical appearances, for our looks, for the food we cook, for our choices and many things. No one knows and is efficient to approve of your worth than you. You need to be confident for your choices and for the path you have chosen for yourself.

Procrastination

Biggest time killer!! We all are guilty of Procrastination at some or the other point of time. We do it more often, even after knowing the consequences of the same. We delay things, we imagine of completing the task, we know the consequences of not doing it but we still are not able to take immediate actions. Get over this habit of postponing things and never doing it, it leads to nothing but mental nagging and anxiety.

Self-doubt

We all go into self-doubt occasionally.
The root cause of self-doubt is, we do not celebrate our victories, we do not appreciate our own efforts rather dwell into self-doubt and self-loathing. Take charge of yourself, come out of your comfort zone, do not stop learning new things, do not stop upgrading your self. Do not doubt your own abilities and capacities to perform anything without even giving it a fair try. Do not let the feeling of What If I fail, crop in your mind and reside in your heart. You are capable of more than you think.

I have managed to overcome these demons by following the path of gratitude and believing in myself 🙂

Much Love and much gratitude

Priyanka
