My famous five-an unforgettable friendship

Sreepriya Menon

I remember the time when my parents left me at the hostel, the pain of being away from my parents was like unbearable. I had spent much more days crying and depressed. I just wanted to go back home and be with my family. The hostel was like a horror house for me, the nights were scarier. The scary bathrooms in the wing where I stayed , invited enough creepy things inside and the roofs of the hostel,was an abode of some creatures whose names I never knew then. Oh!! the initial days were really scary, only them mornings were the best part,where I could get to my class and feel safe with my bestie.

Then slowly things changed , I had few friends ,started with my roomies , then slowly every room next to me had a friend. I started to feel like being home, I loved my single…

De-stressing

Every day it’s a new tension ,new day, new things to encounter and may more.It is all up to us how to deal it.

Wondering why we stress a lot?

How to deal it?

Every person has some or the other problems to deal with. We all think ours is the worst one, while in another corner of the world, there are many other who undergo the worst of our dreams .

The main reason for stress is that we have to deal with the pressure of being perfect. At times no one to share our responsibility. We are expected much ,beyond our imagination. To reach perfection ,we thrive harder and harder bringing the thrust on our heart and brain and one day it will all wear out.

We need to stop living to meet others expectations. Everyone is scared what others might say or think about them. Ignore them,imagine they are invisible.It is tough but never impossible. Remember that no one is famous without rumors and defects.

When I was stressed ,the first thing that helped me was taking a walk, like a blend of the nature, and praying. I love being out in nature, and enjoy the soft breeze , chirping of birds ,moving clouds and much more. For some a book, a nice talk, a perfect cup of tea, an outing , a smile of our kids , a gesture of being appreciated is enough. For some, it is not enough. Making friends can really help at such times , as we get to know many things we thought only we were going through.

The positive thought that things are going to change is the first sign that you are thriving to loose all your stress. Remember that no one can help you other than you yourself.

Never loose hope, take a leap above your problems like a rabbit and enjoy the world beyond your problems. There is a better world ahead, it is just that you need to seek yourself out of all these negative emotions to see the beauty.

Oh!! the initial days were really scary, only them mornings were the best part,where I could get to my class and feel safe with my bestie.

Then slowly things changed , I had few friends ,started with my roomies , then slowly every room next to me had a friend. I started to feel like being home, I loved my single bed and the study table . Everything was a different experience .I started to live out of the comfy life of my house. Made quite really good friends who are still with me even though far away. a

We all were from a different stream, but the best part was we all loved each other’s company. We all were different still happily enjoyed the interests of each other. The time went by, we were like a group of 5 girls ,which I used to call the Famous five. We enjoyed the time we took to walk to the college and the lunch breaks , and many things. Their company made me learn a lot. The best part was the fun time on Sunday when we used to visit the Chapel in our college . When the sun goes down and our college shined up in the light of dusk.

Things changed with years, by the end of the college everyone got busier , still, we had enough interaction. At many points, the way they stood with me was like supporting. That’s what friends are for. If I could recollect the fun days we had , then , the numerous occasions where we laughed like hell, enjoyed the company, singing ,dancing, gossiping and much more.

Those days will never come back, yet the memories are still fresh. And the Famous five are still together ,even worlds apart.

The joy of friendship is truly a bliss.

Handling Depressions

As I was browsing through many news in the web pages , past a couple of times I came across some news regarding depressions and the after-effects. It seemed to me be more like depressing for me . I could relate to most of the instances .

Most of the times a person gets depressed when they are stressed out. It is common for people who are overloaded with work and responsibility. At times out mind cannot handle the emotions and finally the mind starts to make things up , which are quite not good for the person. The person will be like being pushed into some black hole ,where everything is just dark and no connections with anything around them.

The new moms face it most often . Been alone , loaded with a new responsibility in life, no one to share their responsibilities and much more. One thing I would like to tell these new moms is that , Relax dears . You are not alone ,every other mom who handles all these responsibilities carry the burden of tensions . Reassure yourself that , noting is more important than your kid ,keep focussing on them and of course take care of yourself, because you are the pillar of the family.

Loneliness is also a reason for depression. Even though we are surrounded by thousands of people , our heart might long to talk to someone , we feel close to. Take time ,socialize , explore places, enjoy the sunlight and the soft breeze. Nature truly has a healing touch. I would advise al the new moms to take the time out and enjoy the nature rather than four walls of the houses.

Friendship plays a pivotal role in handling depressions. No one can predict , what ones ‘Hi/ Hello ‘ can change the perspective of anyone towards life. Enjoy the bliss of friendships, relive your childhood.

Listening to my lil chatterbox

All day I can spend listening to her and it’s fun.

The time she started to go to school ,seems an entertaining part of her life.

Some might question me , why am sending her to play school so early, but I believe this is the perfect age to enjoy and learn more. Initially, the few days of her start it was little difficult for her to be without me, but it was the same for me too. The only difference was that she was amidst a group of kids and me amidst in an empty home. That is the time I realised how difficult it is to be all alone. Yes , of course when my elder one went to school , all these struggles I had gone trough and overcame too.

Here , going out for something was not at all ideal , because I hate this city , the pollution is like draining all the freshness in my body as well as my mind. Where I look it’s just congestion, I hated it . Hence the only option was to stay at home, luckily I have lots of work to be done to keep me busy.

The first few days, I open the laptop sit in front of it, yet my fingers never moved, as I was stuck. My thoughts kept wandering here and there , thinking about her. The sad face always popped in my mind ,which was like pricking my heart.

Then slowly things changed , her smile was like a sunshine for me. Every day she smiles and gives me a sweet kiss as she said bye to me. As soon as she seems me by the end of her class,she comes running to me and gives a hug. Can’t explain the feeling that comes into my mind , it is beyond words.

Nowadays , she gives a detailed class on how was things in her school , as well as many beautiful stories about her class. She tells what the teacher does, and what not. One day she said, teacher don’t do like mum does, it is different . I was surprised by her observations.

All her stories are wonderful to listen to . Other ones are the rhymes which she keeps sings all day and night and teaching her sister,while she learns a lot from her too. Learning is totally mutually exclusive.

My ears are almost cooked with all these stories and songs, sometimes I wonder what exactly am listening to .Bliss !

The only issue I should always look at her ,while she speaks, else she would say ” oh k , am not telling anything since you are not looking at me” , I was shocked and smiling at the same time I heard it first, now am quite accustomed to it.

An entirely different scenario am dealing with now as compared to parenting my elder one. Am glad for these cute chances am getting to live through.
