Would that!

Just like achievements are zealously commemorated on Facebook and other social media platforms, shared, congratulated by making traffic of unnecessary notifications, would that with the same zeal broken hearts, failures, and deprivation were healed, embraced and shared respectively. We mourn death let it be apart! Of course, that brings us together sharing a moment of sorrow. How about sharing real-life unhappiness when one does not feel like living, or when one can't find an honest friend, or not be surrounded by well-wishers, or constantly coming across misfortunes. It could also be not finding a job after graduation, or all hopes going in vain and finding no meaning in life. Not only had this but how about mental depression and the feeling of existential crisis? Just like achievements are not a very big deal lets for a moment think about failures no big deal either! Let for a moment tell people our stories of fighting adversity. Every now and then people are happy and sad, gloomy and serene! It is all normal and part of life! Why to give struggles some crappy look? Come one dear society we need to grow up and embrace the reality

Hello Rakhshi, Dear,

How are you and your family doing, Love? I agree. I've struggled with this for a very long time, actually. I came from a less than stellar upbringing, and quite early on realized in life that no one wanted to hear about it, so I stuffed it down. It's really only until I joined World Pulse, that I started to really find my voice again. It isn't healthy, and sometimes when you need someone the most, they shun you, and you feel even worse than what you originally did. Hopefully people will become more compassionate now with the virus, and also with women rising. We can only hope:-) What are your thoughts?

Yes, we need to celebrate our successes and share our challenges

Hello, Rakhshi,

We hear you, dear. Facebook is not a place for me to share my problems, though. It's hard to know who truly cares. That's why I am grateful for World Pulse for being that safe online space for women. :)

Dear Rakhshinda,

I hear you loud and clear!
Life is full of trials and temptations and social media can be cruel!
But welcome to World Pulse. You are in a safe place because there is not a woman who has not experienced some form of unhappiness at one point in their lives.

We are here for each other and for you. May you feel welcome, comforted and supported in whatever you are trying to achieve.

Failure is not a stop sign; and sometimes that may be the best thing to happen provided you use it as a spring board for better things to come.

Hello Dear Rakhsi,
Thank you so much for sharing your post. During this very difficult time it is true that we need to be very compassionate towards our people because this virus does not discriminate against anyone.
Make sure you stay home and stay safe.
