“The people we surround ourselves with either raise or lower our standards. They either help us to become the-best-version-of-ourselves or encourage us to become lesser versions of ourselves. We become like our friends. No man becomes great on his own. No woman becomes great on her own. The people around them help to make them great.
We all need people in our lives who raise our standards, remind us of our essential purpose, and challenge us to become the-best-version-of-ourselves.”

Little did you know, time is passing while you are not paying attention. It’s actually faster than you thought. The moment comes and the moment goes. You only realize it after it had passed. And the wait is finally over. Continue reading
The Pursuit of Happiness:

Have you ever been in a situation where someone seeks your advice with relationship issues, you genuinely try to help them and then comes a third party, gets involved with the ‘intention’ to help; but then knocks down half of what you said and in the end says: ‘you do what’s comfortable for you’. What can you say or do at this point except walk away from this whole thing.
