Your feelings matter #11

If you are following my blogs for at least 10 months, you now know what this blog is about.

This blog is about you, the readers who are reading it with 2 eyes (or 4 eyes if you have glasses like me).

As always I will ask you a few questions, you will answer them and the best comment will get an opportunity to write a blog post for me, JK (I’m not).

A few weeks ago my favorite blogger (LFW) shared a poem (which I absolutely adored), in which she raised an important issue of feeling of being trapped.

You can read her poem by clicking here “A BIG BIRD IN A SMALL CAGE

I was amazed at how people responded to it and were sharing their struggles.

I realized we all are facing something, and something or the other is bothering us.


I cannot ease that pain, or I cannot just make that problem disappear, but I can certainly give you my undivided attention if you want to talk about anything.

So, feel free to answer these:

How are you feeling?


How is your mental health?


Would you like to share anything?


How was your month?

Anyone can answer these. Please don’t let any emotions be inside you.

Btw, if you are struggling, Cindy Ma’am’s book can guide you (as it guided me), check out my review about the book and make sure to read it. It’s available on Amazon and Kindle E-read. I am sure I am the first Indian to read it, yeah!!!

Before I end this blog, I want to mention that a very dear friend+sister+ part-time magician is missing from the action for the last 15 days. She used to post every Sunday, but now she is not doing it.

Vidah is the only person who’s all blogs are read (and spammed) by me. I would like all of you to encourage her to write again.

You can do that by commenting “Hey V, write something for me” in the comments section.

Keep smiling……. πŸ˜€

    • Take care then…..

      Sadly, I don’t respond to questions about me on my own blog πŸ˜‚

      You tell me more. What’s bothering you? Where’s the energy?

      • Dang, why not?πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I’m just okay. I’m just chilling fortunately. 😎 Best thing about not being in class means that I have different responsibilities that don’t make me feel like I’m wasting my time.

      • Because this blog is not about me

        Write you own blog to ask about me 🀭

        That’s good… I’m glad to see you back. Loving the art, and now you are breaking blogs in 2 parts interesting 😎

      • The posts give an option. If you don’t want to read the second part, you don’t have to. You can only read the first page and the art. I do not want to post multiple times a day because people hate that so it’s one blog with an extra part if someone wants to read it.🀷🏾

      • You are indirectly telling people to not read part 2nd.

        You are telling them, it’s not important. It’s devaluing your work. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ

      • That’s too bad.

        I wanted to write it, if they choose not to read it, it gives them an option to have a page they can ignore, instead of just adding a long post that requires scrolling and they get unfocused and ignore it anyway.

        Some of my stuff is more important than others to a lot of people. Showing my art is like a white space for some people who don’t want to read, what is, a block of text.

      • Yeah, but I don’t want to have multiple notifications or not see one because WordPress acts up. That annoys people. As well, the story with Nashali isn’t short and cannot be shortened.

        They also have no correlation to each other.

      • Stop caring about what people thinks then…..

        Simply, do it for yourself and do it because you love it.

        Those people who cares about you and your work will stick to you. This will help you identify your tribe.

        Trust me there are vast diversity of groups here. There are poets, blogger, health writer, people with art and creativity.

        I understand your point, but indirectly you are telling people to skip part 2 as it’s of no importance.

        Trust me every work is important, because you invested your time and energy to it.

        If certain people are not reading or appreciating your work, than that’s their problem. You keep sharing what you enjoy, in the way you enjoy.

        I don’t mind 2posts from you, because you always bring positive energy with you, so yeah double the benefit.

      • I didn’t know it meant that much or it would come off as that strong.😣 I understand what your saying and I will consider it.

  1. I’m sure you doing well, Devang.
    A great post and very encouraging.πŸ‘

    Vidah… your presence is dearly missed. Hopefully we get to read something from you on SundayπŸ€—πŸ€

  2. I could be better. I am extremely exhausted, didn’t get enough sleep last night and my cat is sick. in other news, I am about to start a side hustle and am super excited about it. It’s been giving me a reason to get out of bed in the morning, so at least there’s that.

    • That’s a great news… About side hustle, not about you and your cat’s health
      I hope you can get some sleep and your cat feels better soon.
      Take care ☺️

      • Thank you. I’ve had people tell me not to start a side hustle because there’s so much competition out there already, but that makes me want to start one even more. If I taught myself anything over the years, it’s that I have the stamina to stick something out as long as it keeps my interest.

        Thank you – I am extremely tired right now and hoping to sleep better tonight. The cat is still sick so he’s allowed upstairs. He’s not eating at all.

      • Ohhh I hope he feels better soon.
        Do the needful.

        The goal always have a goalkeeper, that doesn’t mean we cannot try to goal πŸ₯….

        Best wishes with it, I hope you keep thriving in it.

  3. Hey D! I’m good. House is near done, book is out and I’m heading out to book stores.. YES ..wish me luck my favorite blogger and cheerleader (thanks again for another shout out and reading!!!). Cheers to that!
    Yes VI … D’s right… Write Please.
    Have a super duper delicious day.. I am ,. just ate dahl, tiki masala and some lamb Indian food for breakfast.. YUMMY 😊

  4. So glad that poem resonated with you 😊 Feeling trapped is something we all experience at some poems or the other.
    My mental health and month have been a bit of a rollercoaster lol.

    • I think yes
      We all feel trapped at some point and your poem expressed that beautifully.
      It also initiated the conversation, as people found it relatable (me included).

      You please take care of mental health. Get down of that roller coaster, will make you dizzy 😡.

      Hey also, sometimes for a change you can also mail me first from your side. I’ll gladly listen to your whinning. 😁

      Stay well 🐦🌺

  5. I am feeling better every day witnessing all the victories of my close friends, summer is knocking on my door, I’d better get ready for it.

  6. Thoughtful post, Devang. You are a kind soul and supportive community member, not just with your questions of concern/interest but also mentioning other bloggers and their happenings. πŸ™ŒπŸ» All is well in my busy world. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸ»πŸŒ»

    • Hey thanks!! πŸ™πŸΌ

      I feel you create a positive energy, because everytime I see or read your work, I feel ecstatic 😊

      You are busy yes, but don’t forget to smile. Take care of your physical and mental health πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸŒ»

      • You’re welcome. Hope you are doing well. Thank you! Nice engagement with my blog. You take care, too. πŸ™πŸ»

      • I would like to engage more if the comments are on πŸ˜†
        Do you want to avoid notifications at a certain point of the week, is that the reason? πŸ€”πŸ˜…

  7. I am feeling better and trying to write (again), i am facing time limitations and hence i am left with no energy to do something that i really want to yes i am trying.
    Thank you for mentioning me here, so glad you did so, and thank you for always encouraging me to writeπŸ₯ΊπŸ™‚

  8. I am feeling a bit overwhelmed this month. Lots of adult decisions to take that’s not going to resolve as soon as I like.
    My dear 7 year old nephew loves running with no patience to do stretching with me.
    I hope you are doing well, Devang.

    • I hope all the decision that you make are in your favor.

      I almost read 7 year old son πŸ˜…

      Hey stretching is must, maybe he needs to read FGW’s blogs πŸ˜†

      Running is fun right? I used to enjoy it at the ground. Now my overall workout is too much, so I avoid it now.

  9. Hello Devang. I hope that you have been doing better lately. I’ve been good and have some down time again to write more and read more. I know that we all struggle with something so it is good to reach out and let others know that they aren’t alone. I don’t believe that I have read anything from “V” but I sure would like too. Where are you “V”?

  10. Hi Devang,
    My mental and physical health is good.
    I’m able to manage my stress and overwhelming reactions.
    Last week, I visited my hometown, and met my family…their genuine love, support and encouragement… strengthens me.
    During the exam, I remained calm, determined and focused.
    And I was able to give my best.
    Am I getting selected? That’s a different question.
    I’m waiting for the release of official results.
    From 2nd to 18th June vacations have been declared.
    I have to give another between these days (exam date will be declared soon).
    After 28th May paper, I’m giving enough time and space to evaluate my performance.
    I’m noting some points: 1) things which worked, 2) things which didn’t work, and 3) my needs etc.
    I’m enough occupied…with work…. with thoughts. Can’t write and focus on blogging right now.
    Yes, I’m reading some relevant/interest blogs. But not many.
    My interests in the Civil Service Exam and the critical circumstances β€˜demands more from me’.
    And I have no reason to avoid that.
    I might prefer blogging β€˜once a week’.
    Overall I’m fine, happy and excited.
    I want to thank you for introducing blog post of this kind, where we readers are able to share our story, on some relevant points.
    Take care of your health.
    I appreciate your efforts.
    Your Communication skills have certainly helped you to win the trust of your readers, and help them to improve their lives.
    I wish for the peace, happiness, prosperity and development of the World.
    I also know, without our β€œactive efforts” it can’t be done.
    Best wishes.βœ¨πŸ’‘πŸ˜πŸŒπŸ’ͺ

    • I am glad to know that you are doing fine

      and investing time to things you wanted to do.

      Best wishes for that.

      Good luck for upcoming exam. Make sure you eat healthy and invest proper time to rest.

      Do well….

      I think it’s people’s interest that did that magic.

  11. OMG

    Feeling so proud of you Devang after reading this post. You’re doing an amazing job to so many people out here…. Congratulations and lots of blessings on your way…

    And just to let you know
    I read with 4 eyes πŸ‘“ + πŸ‘€

    Hey V,
    Please write something for me.


  12. I guess, once again, I’m the last person to read this πŸ˜… (I mean, the last one among your regular readers, I hope more people read it)

    After a long time, I’m finally at relief and happy as well. Though I still have to figure out a lot of important stuff, I’m just not under that torturing pressure (if that’s a word, lol!) 😌✨️

    What about you?

    • You take it slow

      And make sure you give proper time to workout ( your early morning adventure) and nutrition.

      I amazed that you call yourself a regular reader. That’s interesting πŸ€”

      • Yes, I’ll take care of that!!

        Because “I am” a regular reader, it’s just that you don’t post very often, and because of that, your posts get lost among the other. πŸ˜…πŸ˜‚

      • Well my other regular readers don’t tell me about my posts getting lost among other posts.
        That’s when we use notification and mailing services. πŸ˜› …..

  13. Beautiful share on the Big Bird poem, thank you, Devang! As always, thank you for your uplifting and encouraging outlook. πŸ’ž
