“Immune to Good Advice” – Nayana Nair

dfevfeve (1)

When my own opinions can’t budge the doors
that are closed on my face,
I run back to these books
which list how to think, what to want.
I do not look for how it is done
I look for what I did wrong.
But my mind is so immune to a good advise
that the words that I read make me sick
even when they could be my medicine.
But I don’t yet know if they are,
cause my wish for a better life fades away
in front of the genuineness my heart demands from me.

    This was sad. Except a few Self Help books (the select few) that’ve survived, the rest are mostly fluff, and points of opinion. โ˜บ๏ธ
    Life ahould be lead with least expections, the mind remains calm thatway, and errors don’t happen if the mind is calm.

      Mostly even if these books make sense and even if we want to change, we find that it is so against our own nature that it seems synonymous to being fake. I have found my mind accepts facts that are based on my experience than to accept what is told to me, even if it is really good advice, that can sort my own life. It is almost even if my mind accepts the reason and logic, my heart doesn’t care for all that.

    yeah i NEVER listen to somebodys advice. EVER!
    like the person does NOT know u and does NOT KNOW the experience u r going thru. nobody can truly know that. And thus we have to find our own advice from ourselves.
    At least that is what makes sense to me.

    1. Nayana Nair says:

      And you know what I find funny, most of the advice that people give, is not something they actually do when faced with the same situation.
      Might as well do what I think. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Nayana, Nayana….aren’t we all?

    I learned something today… that BTS was a kpop band…youngsters, they teach us something new everyday!

      True ๐Ÿ™‚
      If we ignore the specifics, everyone can relate to each other’s feeling. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Glad you came to know about BTS from me. (You should check out their songs, you may like them)
      Learning something new is really good. The world is too big, so many things are happening at once, and we are bound to miss out on something or else.

      Peace ๐Ÿ™‚
