The conflict that we feel inside ourselves of why we should do things first has become so common that instead of doing something about it and saving the relationship we prefer to keep numb and let our ego destroy what could have been a loving bond. Maintaining high ego is more important for people than saving their relation. Continue reading “Ego: Not worth leaving things for”

Death..! Death is so final, whereas Life..!, Life is full of endless possibilities.

She unlocked the main door with heavy heart, with small and tedious steps came inside and switched on the lights, with a sigh she took of her coat and hanged it near the door and kept keys on table.
