Strong Mental Health

How to be Mentally Strong? 

Ami Morin is a therapist and has written the bestseller "13 Things Mentally Strong People Don't Do". I haven't read the book but I have heard her tedx talk. Here is the guidance by Amy Morin and my notes on them.




 Believe in yourself

  • We usually have certain beliefs about ourselves that are developed during our childhood. Like I am lazy to finish any task, I am an angry person, I am only good to people for certain amount of time etc. These are the statements usually by my key person, my guardian or my mom. I do feel offended when she says so but I accept it like a blind faith.
  • If I try to say good things about myself and prove with incidences I can regain faith in my efforts, in myself. That will make me HAPPY.
  • Daily Gratification is a good habit I will cultivate. It will surely make me feel special and thankful for what i have.
  • Achieving my goals will elevate my faith in myself.

Dont Compare yourself

  • We find ourselves comparing with our friends and acquaintances on social media sites like Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp. Although we stalk them just so that we know what we are missing on. This leads to grief in the end.
  • Our only comparison should be ourself. I can make a journal of my improvement and graph my goals. This will definitely make me Happy.
  • In the end nobody is more important than ME. Self Love is must for social wellbeing.

Don't Expect From Others

  • When we say that the world isn't fair, we mean we were not ready for the situation. But Life is uncertain. Anything can happen anytime. A death, a calamity, an illness, a sudden loss… We can’t be prepared for everything but we can certainly say “This Too Shall Pass”. 
  • The ultimate truth is that everything is cured by time. Only not letting it go delays the cure. Cursing the world or the person or the situation would worsen the situation. 
  • Self Pity would blind us and we won't be able to come out of the sorrow.

Being Critical and Comparative about my ride

I don't want to sound too critical.. But am just wondering if any1 out there in city of Mumbai, face the menace of this black rushing cockroach... the auto rickshaw. (Spare me if I did!)
No doubt, its the quickest was to reach in the nick of the time to your office..your home..a function.. when there is no public transport! The problem is.. there are more issues to travelling by an auto then there are advantages!
First of all, its next to impossible to get an empty auto in the city of mumbai and if you still manage to plead a driver with your innocent looks you should think thats an angel hailed from heaven on a god-forbid road.

Kshamapna: Forgiveness

The 8days Jain festival called "Paryushan" has a very thoughtful message to give. It inspires you to forgive and forget the past grievances. "Michhami Dukkadam" is what you tell everyone, not only humans but every single soul in the universe. It is a prakrit phrase meaning 'to be forgiven' or 'may all evil that has been done be forgiven'.


Why do we forgive some one?
1. Because he can be harmful
2. Because you owe him
3. Because of some religious reason like God says we must forgive and forget
4. Because that is what you call as dignity
There can be many reasons. Be it. But the calmness you feel after forgiving wholeheartedly is inexpressible. Like we bath daily... our soul should also be cleaned at-least on a yearly basis!




As humans we tend to have some or the other feel of grievances, hatred, enmity, jealousy etc towards others. Slowly & gradually this ill feelings give rise to feelings of revenge which ultimately is a destructive process &…
