In the last couple of days, I have started listening to a podcast. From that podcast, I have noted some good points that I want to share with you all. Podcast is all about starting small talks with yourself, start questioning yourself, take time for yourself.
We are living in a total of five responses. These five responses are good, bad, fine, ok, and hmm right? We are using these answers very often in our day to day life. For e.g. if Someone asked a question, how are you? And our Answer is fine.
In Daily life, we use these words very frequently to complete our talks. So, we don’t want to let people understand the flow of our life. For our emotional exploration, We ask and answer the same questions to other people or friends. We set our mind in the box of regular questions and answers. So ultimately, we live in limited questions and answers to finish our conversations/ignore talks.
