Haven't we all been victims to the 'log kya kahenge' phenomenon countless times in our life? And haven't we spoken at length about how often society comes in the way of our dreams and happiness?

However, we hardly speak about how harsh we can sometimes be when it comes to matters of self-judgement. and about the impact it creates in our life.

There's a need to remember that the single most important relationship that matters in our life is the relationship we share with ourselves. A relationship that is entirely defined by the thoughts we have about ourselves.

Think about it. How many of us, after a rejection, would tell ourselves the words we would have told our best friend if he/she were in that place?

"It's not your job to like me - it's mine" - Byron Katie

More often than not, we are our own biggest critic. And while these criticisms may help us push ourselves beyond our comfort zones, there are times when these judgments stop us from expressing ourselves completely. Sometimes, they build us a wall of excuses, becoming the perfect defense as to why we can't do or achieve certain things. It is these judgments that become the limiting beliefs which constantly pull us down.

Why are we bothered by another person's judgement? Perhaps it is because when we look within, we would find ourselves somewhat agreeing with the judgement meted out to us. That, is what really bothers us. And while it might be obvious in some cases, it is deceptively subtle in others.

But remember: it is only to the extent to which we believe in a judgment about us, that we allow it to bother us.

So maybe, instead of complaining about society's judgments and expecting the society to change, it would make sense to look at the judgments we have formed about ourselves, and how they stop us from what we desire to achieve in our life.

Sometimes, you need to be kind to yourself.

Take a deep breath, look into yourself and acknowledge yourself for all the battles you've fought to reach as far as you have. You need to give yourself the permission to be the way you are, and enjoy every bit of it. Because no one else can do it for you.

Hey, you.

Remember the first time we met? I know that I do.

One of my favourite things to do after a bad day...or really, any day, is to read a good book. A book that will slowly, but surely change the way I think for the better, have me imagining worlds I never really could and push me to explore parts of my mind I didn't even know existed. And here's the thing: some of the best books often win the hearts of critics while going unnoticed by the mass public. We get so caught up in our Twilights and Chetan Bhagats, that we forget to look beyond. But if you're the kind of person who loves reading - and I mean, truly loves reading, then this list is for you.

Why do we love memes, guys? Well, mostly because they show us who we really are. And because we love seeing how we're not the only ones doing all sorts of insane, crazy and weird stuff in our lives. There's a community of weird that loves the fact that EVERYONE else is weird too.

Have you ever gone through your social media feed and just felt...tired? Like you're seeing the same things, the same news, the same...everything? Because honestly, it's something that happens to me almost everyday. It's something I've also kinda accepted in order to feed my need for social media and the things on it. And then I came across Nick denBoer's work as part of the Uncover project, and well, it was something that took me a while to make sense of. Don't get me wrong, it was pop culture...but different. So different.

20 Pretty AF Work Desks That'll Never Make You Want To Leave Office

Work spaces that'll make you want to werk it.

We spend 10 out of our precious 24 daily hours working. If we're not really happy with what we're doing, we're pretty much just wasting our non-refundable time. And that matters. It matters how you feel in your work space, and how you want to feel. It also matters if the interiors resemble the inside of a demon's head or are bright, warm and inviting.
