But how do we maintain a connection to this place of inherent love within ourselves when everything around us feels so chaotic? During times of change or uncertainty, I often lose my sense of groundedness. I may find myself in tears over the slightest, seemingly innocuous interactions. To illustrate this point, I recently tried to talk with my boyfriend late at night about something that upset me earlier in the day and he was not engaged.
I felt hurt, like a burden unworthy of love. Emotional reactivity is deeply embedded in our subconscious, accumulated patterns from reactions to past experiences. I learned it upset and angered the adults around me. Neither example means that I am loved any less, it simply means the people I look to for support cannot always be there for me in the ways I need due to circumstances beyond my control.
This is a very liberating realization because it reaffirms the notion that I am loved just for being who I am, just for existing. Instead, become aware that we are feeling reactive, feel the emotion, and then let it go. Acting from a place of reactivity will only create more tension and take you farther away from yourself. Once the emotional reactivity has passed, your mind will clear and allow you to separate your worth from the actions of others. Expressing your needs is often easier said than done.

Musharaff multiple times on Kashmir and terrorism, how elegantly he establishes India's perspective on various issues. Sambit Patras of the world should not be empowered to call every person who questions the government an anti-national. But at the same time in the same breath, I from my personal experience of being a Rajdeep viewer for years can infer that he sometimes gives more weightage to Gandhi's vis a vis India.
This country is about people first rest next. I found Rajdeep wrong on two counts on the debate that evening. I on an individual level am responsible for 10 lives at home and around at work. The prime minister of this country who is 70 years old is taking care of a billion-plus population, irrational opposition, sold out communists, biased media internally and rogue neighbours on all sides. And when it is a war, we either win or lose. Retreats Dropdown.
