Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me

"Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me...." I have been thinking a lot about this proverb lately. Is it true, do the words really don't matter??? If a friend will say something to me, most hurtful, and it won't matter?

Do we have to make ourselves so strong that we can not be hurt by anyone's awful words? The answer is yes! Those who say awful words to you are either not your friends or they are so close to you that they want something good for you. If our young mind will be so fragile that it will break w
ith words......then what will sustain our hearts? Love is something that we all need in life to grow, and sometimes words, bad ones weaken this love.

Don't ever let them weaken you from the inside or the outside. Take in the positive and move on! Life will be with ups and downs and we have got to sustain ourselves in all conditions that follow. Just a little say here and there and you are sitting in your room and crying! We have a lot of salt water here so don't flood it more with your tears!

Remember that in life sometimes we have to let everything out! Words are made without the thought of hurt or is just the way you say
them that makes all the difference. If you call your friend and say that you are glad to have them in your life - their face would glow with a wide smile. But, if you say that you don't like their company they would feel empty and sad. So many times the one feeling this emptiness is you!

Why??? Isn't it up to us what to listen to and what to not? God has provided us with two ears and a brain in between.Hear from one ear, retain what is needed in the processing unit aka the brain and throw out the rest from the other ear. Use the filter of wisdom!

If we include this practice then words will never hurt us, they won't break our hearts and won't steal our joy! Have fun FORGIVE AND FORGET! Enjoy life to the fullest and be carefree.

Take a deep breath and let go!

Are we as Idiot as the Idiot Box

I was sitting down with my mum today and realised what cinema and television meant to them.

Star Trek a fashion during their age is never forgotten. My mum still remembers Spo

ck's sexy voice and Captain Kirk's handsome built. It was the time when the television show was introduced and gained popularity in India
and still has a place in people's hearts.
This was when I sat down and thought that would the shows that we watch today have equal importance. Is this 'idiot box' as we call it gone too far to leave importance and a mark of anything that is

I sit down to think that ; would I remember 'Wizards Of Waverly Place' or 'Glee' once I grow as old as mum? I don't think so. In today's age, with so much to trend the value is lost. Coming down to it, television was there when I was born, I grew watching it, and the minor changes were nothing new.
If you think about it, you can find many reasons as to why television was of importance to

our parents. It was something new and interesting, the whole family sat down to watch a single episode of Ramayan and Mahabharata (which was the most famous amongst all that came on T.V in India).In other words, it united the family.

Nowadays, with so many shows - different for kids and adults and teenagers with their o
wn lists, it ends up dividing the family. My grandparents liking
to watch the episodes of Balika Vadhu ; my mom wanting to watch the old episodes of F.R.I.E.N.D.S ; dad engrossing himself in travel and living as well as music shows, and me, being a teenager watching Glee results in no or very little time for family.

I started from the importance of television in old days, and continued with its relevance for today's generation. I wish I could club the two and get the same old togetherness in the family back.
