Written for : Daily Prompt: I Am a Rock.
Obsessed with self ,a person never tries to acknowledge his shortcomings or his flaws. A rather typical nature of a human to remain aloof and shelved within the hard shell when in times of distress or sadness.
Many are known to crib all along the life about every happening . Else they get into the habit of mumbling to draw attention to their minutest details.
Every individual has a special characteristic and his own unusual way of dealing with times of strife.
I have come across many people who have been rather different in their upheaval times.
The characteristic of every man depends on the type of life he/she has lead and the way he/she has been brought up.
The upbringing ,the mental blocks and the social involvement of a person shapes his/her disposition.The cruel and sour remarks of people,or outrageous behaviour of some,sweet gentle nature or the suspicious trait visible through the thick dark wall are all results of such experiences.
Asking for help or allowing people to help you is also a kind of courageous act which requires much humbleness and resilience in you which can bear the burden of accepting help from others. For such a behaviour in your view is like ,you are incapable of sorting out things,or it would simply show your weak nature.
Such negative thinkings disallow people to share their thoughts and problems with others just for the sake ,what would others think ?
But humanity is a bigger canvas and small things as such don’t paint the picture as we think.
It is the sense of gratitude that would allow us to share our thoughts with others . It brings the compassionate nature of us and reminds us at every juncture to take care of every other individual that we come across in life who is in distress.
“Even if I stood like a rock under the scorching sun
without a shade or a river to quench my thirst
yet I owe my gratitude to the Almighty
for showering few drops of rain
to grace me with the endurance
face the rough weather….”
So even if we do not accept help from others ,there has been some assistance provided to us in a disguise which we need to recognize and realize .
