A couple of weeks back I did I video on how to raise children with high self esteem. In this video I talked about what is self esteem and why is it important. And how to raise it. So if you have’t seen it, this is a good point to view it.
But today we are going to take this discussion a step further and explore how a lack of self esteem impacts our life and what can we do about it. And to help us shed some light on this topic, we have Dr Ruta Vyas. 3. Dr Vyas has a a total of 16 years of work experiences in executive coaching, working with senior leaders both Indian nationals and expatriates. She has a PhD in NMIMS in leadership behaviors. She studies how self esteem impacts our behaviour, our attitude and thereby our growth.
We are all puppets in the hands of culture and tradition. As soon as you hit your twenties, or may be sometimes even earlier, parents start looking for a suitable suitor. But just getting married isn’t enough. As soon as you get married, culture, aka, parents, neighbours, society starts expecting you to have children. And most of us give in. While I strongly believe that one shouldn’t do anything because someone else wants it. But most of all becoming a parent is one decision, if taken for the wrong reasons can ruin your life and your child’s life.
I will talk about what it can do in a separate piece but here are some reasons why not to be a parent:
Because you are married
Because you are 30 + and your biological clock is ticking
Because your parents or in-laws are bored and need grandchildren
Because all your friends have one
Because you want someone to take care of you when you grow old
Because you want someone to continue the family name, your legacy
Because you think kids look cute
Because your neighbour has one
Because you want someone to live your dreams
Because your relationship isn’t going well
The only reason you should want to have children is that you love them enough to face your own demons, your own voids, your own vulnerabilities and grow from there. Because let’s face it – your kid is going to show you a mirror to each one of those holes and trigger you and then you will blame the child.
Be a parent only when you are ready for this transformative process.
While #holi is the #festival of #colours, the festival of spring, victory of good over evil, it also signifies and celebrates forgiveness. The phrase is like the LIFE of holi. So, today’s episode is focussed on forgiveness and how its an important practice in a parent- child relationship.
Diwali is around the corner and we all get into a cleaning decorating frenzy. And why not! I myself go crazy when it’s Diwali time. While we all know why we celebrate Diwali; celebrating the return of Lord Ram to his native place Ayodhya. But today, I want to delve a little deeper and re-invent the spiritual meaning of Diwali. In fact, unravel the spiritual meaning of our existence itself and how a bent towards spirituality can help us not just become better human beings but also cope with external situations better. And what better way to talk about this – 9 months down the line, we are still in the pandemic. In my mind, if there is one thing that can help us deal with situations better, is to lean towards a more spiritual existence. Join in this conversation to listen to simple tips that can help boost your #immunity, #resilience, and make you more connected with yourself, other beings, and the entire #universe.
