Quote Of The Day
What’s Up With Pooj?
My friends call me Pooj not Pooja. Did you guys know that? Bet not. Do you guys care? Bet not. I just felt like this is the usual mindless drivel I share on my quote of the day posts. And you guys seem to enjoy it so here I am. Or perhaps I’m judging myself too harshly. Perhaps these posts will be used by my future biographers to show how “quirky” I am. If so, please don’t.
Have any of you ever met someone who has the incredible ability to make themselves the victim no matter what? Even with things that don’t include them. I have the displeasure of dealing with someone like that recently and boy was it an incredible journey. Like the things people like that day are so delusional it would be amusing if it weren’t so sad. I pity people like that. If you always play victim you can never grow and improve.
Let’s move on to some better things. Recently, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by a fellow blogger called Anjola. She reached out to me for an interview and you guys know me, I can never resist talking about myself… Kidding. But only a little… Anyway, we had a lovely chat about blogging, how to be a successful blogger, tips for newer bloggers and so much more. Do feel free to read the interview by clicking here. And while you’re there don’t be shy to view her other posts as well.

I enjoyed this post, Pooj! Sometimes a good rant can be very enjoyable for your readers.
Lol, thank you! 😊
Yes!! My mother is always the victim 😤
That really sucks 😞
I don’t enjoy failures, honestly, they are not fun. Even if I learn from them later on, who cares, failures suck, they make you feel worthless and you might lose faith in yourself. However, they are a part of life, school of hard knocks… So many things are, but should they be?
Yup failures feel awful but I feel like that helps you learn tough lessons. The more it hurts the more likely we are to remember our mistakes and not repeat them. I wish the world was a different place where failures weren’t common but the world we live in at the moment isn’t so kind to us.
I think the world we live in is not perfect, Actually I know it for a fact, failing or succeeding doesn’t always depend on you, there are many more contributing factors. Having said that, I strongly encourage you to try and do your best no matter what. Just keep in mind there are things out of our control, don’t be too harsh to yourself
Absolutely. I think a lot of failures aren’t our own fault. And a lot of times it’s just our circumstances that make us fail. Of course, never let the bad things get you down.
Well written, Pooj 😊❣️
Thanks so much 😊
I do like the quote, it’s very true!
Thanks so much!
Love the quote…but when I experience failure, I hate it. 😪
Yeah it’s tough but sometimes we need to learn things the hard way 😕
Thank you Pooja. I had a nice interviewing you, I learned a lot. Love the quote!
Wonderful quote, Pooja! Surely, failure is success if we learn from it. Failure is in fact a stepping stone towards success.
Being an interviewer is another facet of your multidimensional personality. Wish you stellar success in every field of your life!
Thanks so much! I totally agree. Failure teaches us so much.
I do care about that.
And hey btw, Pooja or puja often get shorten as Poojs, pooj or pooh 😃.
So I know what you meant.
But, I like calling you PG. Till now you haven’t said anything against it, so I’m continuing 🤭.
No offense, but how can you expect to read the quote, when you are talking in the blog?
Your blog have a variety and I love it when you talk. It connects the readers with the writer.
Yes, I’ve met and faced such people. They carry tons of negative energy. They feel everything is against them, they are sick all the time and makes everything morse around them.
But hey let’s ignore that and talk further about you. 🤩
Lol yeah I’m good with PG. Some people call me that too. I don’t really mind nicknames, I prefer them more actually.
Haha thanks, I may have stolen some thunder from the quote.
Honestly, I never read the quotes. 😛
My focus is what you are talking 😀🙌🏻
I just typed a lengthy comment to find out I wasn’t typing at all. Pooj, can I call you Pooj? LOL and I hate all the time victims. I know several.
Oops, that happens sometimes lol. Yeah, I actually really prefer Pooj!
Yes, it seems there are always some people in our life who like to play victim.
I find these types of people always trying to 1-UP you like the Super Mario mushroom and turning things around to make it about them 🙄
Lol true. You could fall off a cliff and they would still make it about themselves 🙄
Loved the quote!
Loved it! Failure used to be my biggest fear, now I understand it’s a part of life — best to see it as an opportunity to learn and grow. Cheers! ☕️
That’s wonderful, failure can be a helpful tool sometimes. Thanks!
Great quote, Pooj!! 🙂
While I have interacted with a lot of people who play the victim card ALL the time, I also think if we spend too much time with them we also start doing it!!!!! I realized this after spending time with someone who victimizes themselves a lot. I got home and started thinking – why were they complaining about xxx, my yyy is so much worse? It was not a pleasant realization!
Thanks so much!
True, I think they rub off on you. That’s why I avoid people like that like crazy!
Love the quote and your “mindless drivel!”
Thanks so much!
I’ve been struggling with overcoming an issue I’ve been dealing with for a while, I’ve failed so much with it, it’s wore me out. And then I came across this quote here today. So thank you for this quote! I need to write this one down. I’ve heard this many times before, but I still just can’t seem to get it through my thick skull. Reframing something is so simple, but yet so tough at the same time.
Sorry to hear that you’ve been struggling. But yes, sometimes we need to live through the tough times and learn tough lessons. So glad the quote resonated with your situation. And I hope things get better soon.
Thank you so much Pooj! That’s kind of you! I couldn’t agree more! I have the belief and confidence that things will be get better thankfully. One day at a time, and everything will be alright. 🙂
You’re totally welcome and yes just be patient things will surely work out.
I am glad you have come back to interview people and give interviews. I remember you did that one or two years ago regularly. I have to say it is one of the traits of a narcissist to always play the victim and thinks he or she deserves so much better than everybody gives him or her credit for. And the world is so complicated. Real victims should definitely speak up for themselves and speak until people can hear the voice that they don’t want to hear. However narcissists would jump in to add his or her voices of complaints, just to stir the pot to make life more complicated…
Thanks so much. Yes, that’s a very common trait of a narcissist. To make everything about themselves and make themselves the victim even when they are most often not.
Not me thinking it was a typo on your part after I saw Pooj the first time! I read the interview, and it was really nice, i liked it!
Lolll! Thanks so much, so happy you enjoyed the interview.
My friends and I always called the delightfully fluffy patch of fur on a cats belly “Pooj” 😅. Not a terrible thing to have your name align with!
Lol not at all considering I’m a cat person although I usually call it “pooch” 😂
We all have failures, but we learn from those failures. I look at them as lessons learned to help us to become stronger, but not to give up on ourselves, or lose faith in ourselves. I have been down that road more times than I care to count, but it only made me want to do better and be better. Yes, failure hurts badly, but we can’t keep revisiting what hurt us, it will only make us become stagnant in whatever else we want to do because we will think about what happened before. Move on from failures, remember, the future is bright, but we won’t experience the good things if we keep looking at past failures. Thank you for sharing. The quote is true though. It’s not intimidating, it is something that makes one think. It makes me think about how far I have come from where I started. Have a great week.
Yes, I agree. We need to realise these lessons are important but we need to keep our faith and know things will improve over time. Thanks so much and you too.
Great interview Pooja! That quote is one I live by, same is true for any kind of challenge big or small.
Thanks so much! I totally agree, challenges are great learning experiences.
Good post and interview. I also checked out her other posts. It’s nice, she thought of you, especially since she’s in the same place you were when you started yours.
Thanks so much, so glad you viewed her other posts too. Yes, it was so sweet of her to interview me.
I really like that quote, so true. Enjoyed your interview too! 🥰
Thank you so much! 😊
Hi Pooj. I know that now so we must be friends. I can always spot people who constantly play the victim card by how much they try to explain every single thing wrong with their lives. Even if you don’t ask. And it’s extremely hard to end a conversation with them. Luckily it hasn’t happened to me in a while. I always enjoy your thoughts.
Haha yes we are real friends now.
Yes, people like that are exhausting. All they do is constantly complain. I try to stay away from people like that but it’s hard to always do so.
I agree with the quote, “Failure is success if we learn from it”. In life we are always learning and with some things that we try we may fail at. But failing at it to me only means that, that particular thing isn’t right for you. As long as we continue to learn and try things, success will always follow. Good post Pooj.
Absolutely, as long as we learn from them failures don’t need to be the end of our journey. Thanks so much.
I literally have no time for people playing the victim
Honestly, people like that just suck.
Great quote, I think a growth mindset is so important to keep improving day by day. I think repeated failure makes it harder for people to stay objective about their performance, but trial and error does require some “error” which I guess society may stigmatise at times …
Thanks. Yes, I agree. It’s tough to fail and does not feel good at all but that’s also how we grow and improve.
