As Positive As a Proton

First and for most, my sincerest apologies for not posting anything in a week or so. This has been due to numerous reasons like the fact that I’m battling my way out of final exams. So, I’ve been focusing most of my time on studying and preparations. Yes, like everyone else, I struggle with time management and sadly, procrastination. However, I’m so incredibly grateful to the first 100 followers of this blog. Thank you so much, It truly means so much to me! So far, “Blogosphere” has been very welcoming. Okay, enough of the rambling. Let’s get into business!

A few days ago, I’ve had to face an extremely hard math paper. Maybe not as hard, but i felt like I blanked out and didn’t try my best. Almost like, i just gave up. As a very emotional person, i cried for hours feeling so “low”. I obviously regret not giving it as much effort as i should have. I went ahead and asked my mom for advice and that’s when she told me to learn from a proton.

Scientific Background

Although I’m no expert, Protons are positively charged particles found within atomic nuclei. Protons were discovered by Ernest Rutherford in experiments conducted between the years 1911 and 1919. In the beginning, the theory of the existence of protons were questioned by many scientists. In 1808, John Dalton was convinced that atoms were the smallest particles and were indivisible and indestructible. The indivisibility of an atom was proved wrong: an atom can be further subdivided into protons, neutrons and electrons.

Why are Protons Important?

The stability of the atom depends on the number of protons present in the nucleus. Without it, all atoms would all have a negative charge. In the same way, positivity stabilises the human mind. As a positively charged particle, it is a fundamental constituent of an atomic nuclei as it shows the charge and the element. Being a positive person, we fundamentally define who we are, highlighting our hopes and dreams and helps us to become better versions of ourselves. Without protons, the atom would not be balanced and charges would be uneven. Similarly, our life would just bd lopsided with no hope of the better. Just like protons in charge of the positive charge. We are in charge of our emotions leading to our own happiness.

“Think like a proton in the nucleus of an atom. Always positive, though surrounded by apathy and negativity.”

Keeping a positive attitude is not always the easiest thing in the world. I feel that it is the times that are the hardest, that it is most needed. A small smile can spread like a wild fire. It not only will brighten your day, but of those around you. I think we don’t let ourselves appreciate the power of a positive attitude.

I think it is safe to say that we are familiar with the placebo effect. What I learn from that is that the mind is so powerful. We can convince our minds of something and our bodies will obey. So why not use the power of the mind to help us?

How To: Deal with Embarrassment

embarassment

Can you believe that this week is coming to an end already?! I feel like this week has gone by so fast. Although, I must say I’m pretty excited about the weekend. #TGIF :p After yesterday’s depressing post, I decided to go on something lighter that does not involve too much thinking/ reflection.

One of the most common things we deal with is embarrassment, no judgements there! Mistakes and Errors are a part of life whether we like it or not. The worst part is knowing that everyone in the world knows about it where you can even hear them laughing at your face. As much as we would all like to move to a tiny country no one’s ever heard of, running away is NOT a solution. I agree that it seems like the best and easiest thing to do. But trust me If anything, acting like a ‘coward’ makes the whole situation worse.

stepping

Here are a few things we should keep in mind when dealing with those types of situation.

1) Hold your Head High

The only worst enemy in this situation is our minds battling thoughts constantly. Stop overanalysing or questioning what should have happened but instead grow and flourish from mistakes.

2) Take Responsibility

This is the tricky part since the solution lies in the problem itself. The best way to take responsibility is to apologise. Owning up to your mistakes will not only improve the situation, it defines your character and its what will make you look more admirable. Be careful of making that mistake seem like a joke, humour has its price. The key is not to take it too seriously or too lightly.

3) Rely on your Support System

In this situation, it’s always best to have a “shoulder to lean on”. This can be anyone from your family and friends. The more people you have supporting you, the quicker this gets over.  It may be painful to the people you love after such a blunder, but they are the ones comforting you and making you realise that they’re always there for you.

4) Learn from it

All men make mistakes. But only wise men learn from it- Winston Churchill

The most important thing is to learn from your mistakes. If this behaviour of yours casts doubt on your judgement and maturity, then there’s just a bigger lesson to learn.

5) Move On

Ultimately, embarrassment is just a fleeting thing- its painful but quick. What others regard you as, should not matter. The only opinions you should consider are yours and from those people around you who loves you. Take your punishment, learn a lesson and get on with your life.

From now on, there is absolutely no reason to be embarrassed. Only you can haunt yourself with your past. Being human means making mistakes, learning from it and becoming a better person afterwards.

Hope this helps!
