Pain from suffering of people close to you.
There is varying degree & types of pain physical or mental.
It hurts badly when we face it & is heart breaking to see when a loved one goes through it.
Its very easy to advice when somebody else is going through pain. Good & thoughtful advice always helps. Because we need it, as we look for solutions, for support, for comfort, for help, for prayers, for hope. We look for basic understanding, basic common sense in people. It’s so important in such situations for people to know when to advice & when to be quiet . Or I must say for people to have common sense.( sound judgment not based on specialized knowledge)
let’s make sure that if we cannot reduce this pain & suffering, then we should make all efforts not to increase it.
Let me tell a little about common sense by taking few examples. I know we all are smart enough to know the meaning of this commonly used term but still lets discuss it a little.
-Common sense is drinking water when you are thirsty.
It is also in emptying the bladder when it gets full.
-Common sense is eating something
When you are hungry.
It is also in stopping to eat once you are full.
-Common sense is in driving the car with eyes open.
It is also in not driving when you are to sleepy to drive .
Above mentioned things are the most basic examples of common sense. ( but I’m sure many of us have not adhered to it many times or often overlooked it & must have faced the consequences too.)
From getting their pants wet to having car accidents by driving at night.
Sometimes all that others want may be for you to be there, to do nothing & just sit & listen to them, sometimes just listen to there silence.
I would like to take the example of a very basic illness say, cold-cough to explain this better. I have heard that cold-cough can heal by itself in a week or so. Or for that matter any viral fever takes its times say 3-4 days or a week to get better. Why do we need medicine then or why do we want to take medicine?
What happens when we take it? It keeps the problem under control. I always think that any medicine has two kind of effects on our body one being the Medicinal Effect of keeping things under control & the other is the Psychological Effect.
When we take a pill, along with it we eat hope, have faith, believe in its power & trust that it will fix all our ailments.
This little pill gives us that will power, which often gets unnoticed.
We feel that the medicine did magic but we never realize what actually helped the pill to do the magic. It was our inner strength & belief.
So, for dealing with any kind of above mentioned pain in life
Besides medicine, & our own will power, we need positive vibes from all the people around us through their common sense in dealing with us.
For the one who have common sense, it’s great. They know how to make others feel better. For all those others, who doubt about it let me tell you, “Common sense also lies in being quiet”.
I love the way you are. Stay like this forever , don’t confuse your identity with Mr. Uncommon, you in all sense are a different entity. Don’t get bogged down by peoples opinion of calling you uncommon, Rise up & be yourself !!!
