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.

I am Nayana Nair. I'm 28. Just a person who has tons of things to talk about....not much organized thoughts sadly.
I'm interested in all forms of storytelling (though I don't have the talent for it). So I like series, movies, novels, anime, and whatnot. I'm also really passionate about music, psychology, learning languages (I just dream big, too undisciplined to makes any actual progress) and literature. I am overall just a curious person who is interested in all kinds of things, as long as they suit my taste.
I always wanted to be a writer (and also a teacher)..But I don't think I have the skills required...this blog is just my attempt at becoming the writer I always wanted to be...Blogging for few years, I have realized I am more of a poet (although, I am not sure that I am good enough for that label)...I hope I realize more about myself through writing.
Thanks for dropping by!! Hope I didn't disappoint. :)

This was sad. Except a few Self Help books (the select few) that’ve survived, the rest are mostly fluff, and points of opinion. ☺️
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.
I know the feeling 😦
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.
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. 🙂
Nayana, Nayana….aren’t we all?
I learned something today… that BTS was a kpop band…youngsters, they teach us something new everyday!
If we ignore the specifics, everyone can relate to each other’s feeling. 🙂
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.
