3 min

As kids, our parents always taught us to be careful about the most minor things we do or say. Because those tiny, little, not-so-important things can make a huge difference. Sometimes, the consequences are instant, while some take years. But they matter. And, they matter A LOT.

In this fast-growing, competitive internet world, our lifelines have decreased its growth. We are constantly exhausted. We feel lonely despite of having our favourite people around. Our lives have become more about surviving than living. We miss out on a qualitative lifestyle. We don’t remember the last time it felt peaceful. Or had  worry-less hours with friends and family.
