Sikhism & Sterotypes

Image
Sikhism (Sikhi)- a monotheistic religion that originated in the Punjab region of India (subcontinent in South Asia) during the 15th century. 
  My family and I practice the religion Sikhism. A religion that is not as talked or known about yet it is the 5th largest religion in the world.  The word Sikh means a "learner" or a "disciple".
The beliefs of Sikhism are expressed and written in the sacred scripture called the "Guru Granth Sahib". The Guru Granth Sahib includes faith and meditation in the name of the one creator, unity of all humankind, engaging inselfless service, striving for social justice for thebenefit and prosperity of all, and honest conduct and livelihood while living a householder's life. Sikhism has 27-28 million adherents worldwide and isthe fifth-largest religion in the world.
  The word 'Sikhism' is derived from the Punjabi verb Sikhi, with roots in Sikhana (to learn), and Sikhi connotes the "temporal path of learning&…

Bitch, Please.

hello. Hey guys! So a while ago i wrote a post about losing a friend and guess what? haha that happened again. yay ?! I need to go off and rant about this but also share what I've learned. I can't give you advice about how to deal with it right now but maybe in a while. This time, I'm going to have this in a crazy format. It won't be a good format, it may be all over the place but I'll try. 
Okay so this friend and I had a "fight" and basically they left. Walked to of my life. They meant a lot to me and now they're out, gone, left, whatever. Yeah, sure it does hurt like HELL, but they were part of my journey. It sucks ASS when you lose your best friend. They just decide to be an ass one day and you're like what the ---, okay. I don't know if they will ever come back but they were horrible, a horrible person. Their words and actions hurt but they don't matter because that person mattered, they don't anymore (to me) so nothing they say or…

Self Worth & Self Esteem

Disclaimer: this can turn into a rant but i'll try not to:)  but hello again! :) 
i've recently been motivated and i've had` this vibe or whatever that just makes me want to keep going. Honestly, that is not like me, that doesn't sound like me but for some reason i've been so determined this year and i'm not completely sure about how i got there.  i think it started off from me talking to someone on Snapchat and this girl, Anna,  (let's just say Anna, not her real name though) said that you just have to work hard and keep going and you will hate it but you just have to. There's no option. So somehow after that day, i've been so motivated to keep going and one of my friends laughs at me for this but when i want to stop or give up i literally say, "just keep swimming." For anything, that's like my "mantra" (haha) but it honestly works so well for me. 
Since that day when i talked to Anna, which i believe was a day before new y…

Wow..

Hello !
Okay so I honestly don't even know where to start.
Alright can we please just take like 2 minutes and just think about the people we've lost this summer. I think it has been the most emotional summer ever. I can't even began to think the amount of pain the families are in. Oh, God. Personally, i believe in God and my faith is pretty strong but i do not force my faith on people. I think everyone should be who they want to be and shouldn't be hurt or killed for being themselves. I have two friends who are atheists and a few homosexual friends and i love them, so much. Like try to hurt them and see what happens. I am SOOOO against bullying. It bugs me how people are just ugh, i have no idea how to explain what i am feeling. People who are gay, bi, transgender, atheists, etc. are amazing and beautiful. I find gay people so cute and adorable. (omg, i sound so weird but it's true)  You should live life the way you want to. I'm sorry but do not listen to anyo…

What People and I Have Forgotten

Heho! This will be a very short post just reminding myself and my viewers or whatever you would prefer to be called. I was look back at an old post of mine, Open Up?!?!. Also, yes I know I said I wouldn't post something for a while but I wanted to just remind the people out there (and me) that the MAIN reason I am doing this blog and writing is cause I love to write and discover myself, to talk about what I stand for and to PROMOTE SELF LOVE!! I am actually happy to say that after I am of of my "break", a few (hopefully) of my posts will be about self love, confidence, and accepting and caring for yourself. I was looking back at that old post and it reminded me why I am doing this. Check out that post. It's short but deep and yes, means a lot to me. Love, Darsh

That Twinge of Social Anxiety

Image
Hey! I have an interesting topic that I believe a lot of people go through. That certain topic is social anxiety. You probably know that I have anxiety and a panic attack occasionally pops up every day or so. Social anxiety is slightly different than an every other day panic attack. I am no doctor but, it's when you are shy or uncomfortable and you get the "ugh I can't do this around my friends or people" or you lock yourself away, be alone and don't interact with people because you are scared of being made fun of or un accepted or your symptoms. For me, it hurts to be in that position and to see someone in that position, kills me. It hurts to see someone or something control your happiness.
I was recently on a trip and we had a night on a boat where about 150 people dancing and having a great night. So, I was dancing and having an awesome time but then those stares just started and I stopped. Those ugly stares forced my to stop having fun and trying to live …

Relationship Breakups.

Do you ever feel like you are putting more effort than the other person in a relationship? I do. Did. I recently "broke up" with a friend. To be honest, it was like a relationship. When she broke up with me, it hurt. A lot. We actually went on a school trip and we were at the beach. We had been fighting for weeks. She was dominating and would manipulate my thoughts, but I didn't realize it. I wanted to talk about to I asked if we could, and she said no. And it hurt. She let me crying in my friend's arms, and I still can't fall sleep. This happened about two day ago. We were like best friends, or at least that's what I thought. But she used me, and it took me quite a while to realize that. I trust her, I always have. Point is, be clever. Don't let anyone loose. I do have quite hard time letting go, but I'm a fast leaner. So I'll learn how to let go, its not rocket science. But I loved her like a sister, and she made me love her and ripped my…
