Hi there! I am here today to try and raise awareness on dementia, and in particular, Alzheimer's disease.
Alzheimer's is a type of dementia that causes problems with memory, thinking and behaviour. Symptoms usually develop slowly and get worse over time, becoming severe enough to interfere with daily tasks.
Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia, a general term for memory loss and other cognitive abilities. Alzheimer's disease accounts for 60 to 80 percent of all dementia cases.
Alzheimer's is caused by brain cell death, that happens over a course of time. The total brain size shrinks with Alzheimer's.
Imagine not being able to remember your favourite people, your favourite memories. And not even all at once, but day by day, gradually.
You can check out this website to learn more on Alzheimer's, and also to donate to the cause to end Alzheimer's, www.alz.org or follow their Instagram page @alzassociation.

If you can, please share/repost to raise awareness. #EndAlz
You can never fall in love with a broken human, can you?
Because you want an easy love, my friend. You dream of a love which is tagged with truth and faith and charming togetherness. A love that breathes promises and undying gratitude for a living. A love with a million stains of innocence and indulgence. A love that admires your smile and appreciates the dark color of your eyes. A love which completes you in every possible manner.
Not more. Not less. But just right.
And that is why you don't like dead souls.
Because they're hard to get and hard to keep.
Because you don't want to adore the color of their eyes and crinkles below it when they laugh. You don't want to nourish their minds, because you're too busy over-nourishing yours. You don't want to step in their world of stories and illusions, because you're too busy creating yours. You don't want to heal their scars because you're too busy protecting yours. You don't want to ease their pain, because you're too busy escaping from yours.
Because you want to receive love more than you give.
But, my love, I hope you know that they know. About the real world and rusted emotions they inhale everyday. .
I hope you know that they know their hearts are uselessly stitched together and cannot withstand even the slightest heartbreaks.
I hope you know that they know their lifeless bodies are dipped in mess, and, I hope you know that they are aware of the battles they lose to get themselves out of it.
I hope you know that they seek for the warm and glittering love as much as you do. Maybe more. The only love you're running away from. The only love you're finding too absurd to be real.
And I hope you fall in love with those clutters and shatters resting inside them.
I hope you fall in love with a broken human, dear one!
You were from the start,
I think I missed it cuz you were the reason for my beating heart 💔 (damn, sometimes I end up writing such funky ass sick captions that I gotta make them picture quotes. don't you think so?)
Also, do you guys like the logo like this or should I go back to keeping it straight like I always put in the posts?

Clutching me in those scared hands,a scarred soul
Looking at those wounds patiently waiting to heal
And those everlasting wounds stubbornly causing pain in the deep. .
"Why heal to bleed again?"
"Why trust to break again?"
Hold on! Take a deep breath in
Remember you're still here and there's definitely a reason to believe,
Listen to those blues but never let them in,
Because you're all i need,
"How is that? Elaborate please!"
Let's keep aside the musings you're are not ready to hear,
Have a look here,what do you see?
"Dark,broken at the edges,parts of your mind turned into ashes"
Is that all you see?
For once,look past those ruins of me
Now,don't tell me what you see
Tell me what does it convey to you eventually
"A chaotic mess still trying to heal,
Seen as a nightmare but still standing beside me in peace,
You're a broken beautiful muse to me,
A black & white art but with the most colorful heart among all the hues in a dream"
Looking at him,
Broke down another tired soul,
Setting insecurities free. -Dipti Singh

I know it was a #15wordstory challenge so that will be uploaded as my story(a part of this story only)😊
Paise kamaate kamaate,
yeh dhyaan hi na raha
Ke jeb se rishte/yaariyaan girrte jaarahe thay,
... Jab sab kamaake ginne ko baithe,
Toh jaana ke paison ke alaava
baaki sab kharch kar chuke thay.

While I was earning,
I did not notice that
my relations were spilling off my pockets.
When I sat to count my earnings,
I realized, I have spent everything
... except money.

A letter to all the people who are a part of my life and to all those who will ever be a part of it,
I just want you to tell y'all that don't ever let me get attached to you. Don't let me be dependent on you even for the smallest things in my life. Don't make me fall for your attention. Don't ever let me believe that you're not going to leave me. Don't make me fall in love with your kind words and your affection. Don't ever try to make me forget that everyone is a temporary lesson and they are eventually gonna leave.
Stay with me. Talk with me. Smile with me. Laugh with me. But don't make me feel important. Don't show me the love that will end someday. Don't ever show me that you worry about anything related to me. Don't ever talk to me about the future because I know that is never gonna happen. Don't ruin everything by getting attached.
Because a day will come when you'll decide to leave. Then, I don't want to feel misery again. I don't want to bear that pain again. I don't want to even think I lost someone really close to me again. Because now I am sick of the pain it causes. I am sick of those promise and forevers.
At the end, the thing I've learnt till now is that no one's gonna stay with you forever. No one's gonna feel the pain you are going through. It is you and only you who will stay. So now I'll stand strong for myself in this world of cowards. I'll gather the ruins I am left with and build myself strong enough to lead a life where I'll live for me and not for anyone else. -ridhi

And sometimes I want my heart to believe everything that is happening around because nothing happens without any reason.
We are the tips of icebergs, melting and freezing~ nothing and everything can be as simple as black and white photos. Follow me to the ocean or reach the sky~ so pulled we are by the days & nights living inside
Oh the things God can do with you, when you give Him all the pieces of your life...
In Him, you find strength, joy, wisdom, color, and life.... Life eternal.
I've learnt that I can never hold on to things in my strength. Like sands in my palms, they somehow find their way out through the crevices in between my fingers...and it's never complete.
But in God, you find completeness. In Him, the thieves, moths and rust cannot be found.
He makes sense of everything, even the misunderstood, and He brings it all to a final stop...a great finishing.
So soul, give God your pieces- the yesterday's and today; the sorrows and joys; the heartbreaks and laughter; the misunderstood and understood; the questions and answers; the rain and hot; the mistakes and perfection; the ones too hard to mention and the ones you are proud of. Give it all to God...the many seasons of your life. In Him is a thread of love that runs wild....a love stitch so strong, it can never be broken...a love so eternal, it knows no end...a love that will never let you be stolen from Him... for love is a great force. .....Dear Soul,
Oh the beautiful things God can do with you when you give Him all the pieces of your life...
Catch your breath again, Give him your all, No holds barred.
He puts torn pieces together again...
This I believe. Rest.
#Love and light
If I were to live each day
With the simplicity
of this moment right now,
I'd be in a constant bow,
With my head and heart
Rested on the soft Earth
As I allowed each breath
To birth new life into these lungs
Of life and living.
If I were to keep giving
Myself in all the ways that feel so right,
I'd seal the deal and give up the fight.
Perhaps now is the time
To remind myself of all things simple and great,
All the beautiful things that bring us to our fate.
I relate for the sake of growing
And for unlearning all the knowing
I've had until this date.
