All of us are surrounded by people with myriad of emotions, countless expressions and limitless mannerisms..but on the whole, we can distinctively divide them into Euphoric, Elated and Happy or Depressed, Sad or Melancholic..
and this art of being happy/elated or Sad/melancholic does not specifically depend upon presence or absence of any person or object, but most of the times, it depends upon our outlook towards the situation..A person can be happy and another sad in the similar situations and with similar possessions and assets..
some examples i saw in near past about how a persons perspective and way of thinking can alter their state of mind from positive to negative and the other way around..
One of my friend was going on a holiday vacation with his family, somewhere in India..while whole of his family enjoyed the vacations, he was thinking all time about his colleague being on an international spot for his holidays..WHAT A WASTE OF VACATIONS!!!…Holidays are means of getting rid of your routines and enjoy your free time. you can be jealous of your colleague at your daily office routines!!!
one other person i know, got his son admitted to nursery class in a well known school with a good reputation..he liked almost everything about the school but for one, and he shifted his ward to another school at double the distance from their home, due to this..and what was that..He felt that his son was not speaking good English..even he was not sure whether this is the fault of the school or not!!…C’mmon…only a NURSERY KID..The same person had once slapped his son Because He was not willing to go to DANCE class..overall his son had not started mixing with other kids with ease…BUT HEY..SLAPPING, SCOLDING…A NURSERY KID!!….GIVE ME A BREAK..
Some persons have stopped frequenting to Facebook as they felt depressed after using Facebook..they did not feel at ease when t hey saw their friends update about a new car, a new house or a long vacations at exotic places..JEALOUSY AT ITS BEST!!..
these were only a few examples and it was just a tip of iceberg..i know that no body including me is spared by these kind of thoughts, some more and some less…but we can minimise our agony, our depressions and our sorrows if we care about the things which we can change…and that too with a reasonable efforts and practicality..and keep our-self positive about the life!!..
THERE ARE TWO WAYS TO LOOK AT OTHERS…TO THINK OF OTHERS AS POSITIVE(GOOD) UNLESS PROVED OTHERWISE, AND, TO THINK OF OTHERS AS NEGATIVE (BAD, NOT GOOD) UNLESS PROVED OTHERWISE..AND THIS WILL MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE….
