Some Do’s and Dont’s

Filed under: My Musing Moments — Cris @ 18:06

How the same people can do 2 different things to you is really worth thinking! One day what Ms A told Ms X or rather didnt tell her, has got Ms X kind of sad. The next day, a very small sentence that Ms A tells Ms X has got her so happy she was smiling to herself for the next few minutes.
Doesnt this require some serious thinking?

Think about it. One line we say can make a lot of difference to someone else. Even if we do not strive to make people happy, the least we could do is not do anything that would make them upset. Most of the time we could know what is it that they expect from us. It may be a small thing, but we somehow are determined to not say it just because we know thats what they want to hear. Why are humans including me this way! I know I know there are a lot of good souls in this world. But arent most of us familiar with such a scenario?

I am someone who gets confused very easily. All this thinking of what to say and what not to is getting into my nerves. Rules! Rules please!

Ok rules!

1. When you know beforehand something you say is going to hurt the other, or has a chance of hurting the other, dont “go ahead and say it anyway”. Shut yourself up though it could be a very hard thing to do. There could be a question of honesty here. But no one was asking you to say anything in the first place! So unless asked for an opinion you know they wouldnt be pleased to hear, SHUT UP!

2. When you know that someone is looking forward to hear a small appreciation from you, do say it. They would feel great and seeing how you made them feel, you would feel greater! Again be honest! Say it only if you really feel so.

3. For every teeny little help you get, do let the other know how you feel about it.

4. You know how you hate it to feel ignored and avoided by all (though most of the time you may be imagining it!!). So dont ever let anyone feel that way at your expense.
And try not to ever make one feel that you dont care enough for one, thats the worst kind of feeling one could get!

It is great to feel loved. It is greater to know you made someone feel loved!

  3. “It is great to feel loved. It is greater to know you made someone feel loved!” the best part of this blog post… This is really a world of strangers.. but it is never a sin to wish to see a stranger happy..
