When they say “Its not an easy life” – They REALLY mean it.
Just few minutes back I came to know that one of my old friend committed suicide today as he could not take easy the lack of success in his professional life. I can’t judge the people who decide to kill themselves. They have their reasons but when something like this happens around you, you regret. Regret not being there when the person wanted you to listen. Regret that you did not make that one call and told him/her that things will be fine.
One friend of mine commented on phone, “Did not he think once what his wife would go through?” Well I know, when a person decides to kill himself, he knows nothing except just being there, and doing that. He is not in normal mental state then.
I don’t want to debate on this. All I want to say here is whenever you know someone is going through a low do be there. Tell them, things will look up for sure.
Trust me THIS helps!!! I went through the dark period in my life too. Not that no one tried; it’s just that when you are going through a rough period, you tend to shut all doors that reach you.
At that very moment, when someone stands by you and makes an effort to reach out, to help you dream again, YOU START BELIEVING THAT IT IS GOING TO BE ALL FINE. I had someone doing the same for me and that helped. I got the strength back to again stand up on my feet because of that person!!!
After what I saw in my life, I now make an effort everyday to reach out, to listen and to understand the people around me. Sometimes I am able to solve their problems. Sometimes all I can do is just be there and tell them “Everything will be alright. Keep faith”. Faith does work wonders and so does a friend’s support, a kind gesture and just a little bit of listening and warmth.
I know every article, every blog and every book says that. But we, the humans are so lazy and ignorant to this at times that we need to be reminded again and again so that we do not REGRET later.
Share a smile!!! Talk to that someone today!!! Who knows it can brighten it up for them.
Stay happy and remember that it’s a precious life. Why did God not make us one of the Happy Singh’s, I have no idea. But he gave us this life so we could make the most of it.
You will stumble. You will fall but get up, shout at him (GOD) and get going!!! Just remember, there are many on this earth for who you may mean the world and you need to live, yes LIVE for them, if not for you!!!!
