The entire globe witnessed a multitude of distressing scenarios when 2020 unfurled itself. An approximation of 2.4 million deaths occurred worldwide which led to an overwhelming sense of dread, pessimism and loss in the society. Apart from this, several young adults were forced to face a nascent uncertainty with regard to their near future. The unprecedented loss of life, health and wellbeing is tough to accept, and burdensome to deal with.

If you’re feeling overwhelmed and anxious, it’s okay, but remember, you’re braver than you know. It is your strength that kept you going. It is your courage that made you wake up each day. It is your inner resolve that didn’t let you give up. And you know what, there’s plenty more where that came from. Congratulate yourself for surviving this carnival of challenges and hug yourself for being as okay as you could be.

  1. These are very difficult times indeed. Many of our loved ones may have succumbed to the virus attack. Self-love is very important especially if we feel isolated. These are very valid points, Isha

    Evening Isha,

    Just wondering use of these words in your posts;

    • “If you’re feeling overwhelmed”—

    it’s so true. Most of the time I feel too overwhelmed.

    • “remember, you’re braver…”

    In the present, we’re facing challenges. And to motivate our readers we use this powerful weapon — “ REMEMBER …”.

    • “hug yourself”

    This is too cute.❤️
    Is it possible to hug yourself?

    (I start a long conversation to myself, like “Lokesh, hear me. You’re not weak. Ignore what people say, focus on what you want. Maybe they don’t care you but I AM…(goes on)…”)

    These words are powerful. Maybe because they have been built with such a purpose. Or we are using them to empower ourselves, & the people.

    Well done.🤜

    This past year and a half have been absolutely bonkers and it’s amazing to have even gotten out of it alive because unfortunately not everyone was that lucky. You’re so right we need to to be grateful for just being okay.
