A smiling face does not guarantee a happy heart.
We never know and can understand what the other person is going through as usually, people do not want to cry in public or do not wish to share their struggle and pain with everyone.
Especially the introvert ones.
So, Be Kind to everyone you meet :)
Before sarcastically complaining " You forgot me " or " You are too busy "
Pause and Think
Ask them about their health and happenings first.
They might not open in front of you but try to give some good vibes, some reasons to smile :)
As compared to our parent's and grandparents' time, cases of mental illness are much more now and sadly it remains unnoticed and uncared.
People are worried about physical health, education, carrier, money but not Mental Health.
Which can cause depression and mental problems.
There are many cases where bright students become failures in practical life.
Reason mental issues, lack of confidence, less practical approach towards life, less of emotional bonding with family and friends.
These all made me think deeply about this issue.
Are we providing a good environment to our kids and immediate family members?
The answer might be Yes or No
But thankfully we still have time to work on it.
Let's start with our families then close friends and then others.
Let's bond emotionally,
Let us try to be a Pillar of emotional support to all who need it.
It doesn't cost you money or much time,
Just a little patience and empathy :)
Empathy is something that can make you a Better Person.
As it will help you to understand and feel others' pain.
Before the pandemic started we all were living a very hectic life, busy with our jobs and daily chores, some even didn't care to stay connected with their relatives or old friends but then during the lockdown period, we had plenty of free time.
Many got connected with their long-lost friends and relatives again.
When I got connected with many of my cousins and friends and listened to their stories, then understood that everyone is going through some or another thing, everyone's challenge is different but it's there.
At times they don't even get someone to listen to their problems.
I know many a time it's not possible to help a few but at best we can listen to them and give them some moral strength so that they feel better.
So finally I would say let's try our best to provide emotional support to our near and dear ones.
Show them more kindness, give them a little more time.
Believe me " You will feel good, happy and satisfied "
One gets inner satisfaction by helping others.
In this mad race and mad world, let's show some kindness and empathy to others.
The world needs more kindness and more kind people.
