Sometimes its good to wait patiently…

Yesterday I sat in front of my laptop’s screen, trying hard to come up with something new. I kept on pushing myself, I kept on writing absurd drafts but then it didn’t seem fulfilling. I cleared all that and decided to wait.
There is always a certain time for anything to happen. But then, also, its not right to anticipate it. Let’s suppose you are waiting to get selected for that college play, or you are waiting for someone to propose you. Why do you have to keep on thinking about it and making that wait seem even longer?? It’s painful to anticipate  stuff which is not in our hands.

I realized it’s inherent to get anxious. To keep on refreshing the timeline and check all the likes on the pic. In a way, it can be said that social media has filled us all with anxiety, or rather the internet. Search anything on Google and woosh, the result pops up in a flash. What to know more about anyone? Search on Facebook and you know him in a minute. 
I think we all have forgotten what it is like to actually wait and not stupidly anticipate…

And the fact is that one has to understand it. There is a right time for everything to happen. But one has to be patient enough to wait for it. And then when the wait ends, we come out as a better person. Just think if I had written anything yesterday and published it, I would never have thought about what I wrote above!!

The nature of advice

Has it ever happened that you have asked for advice from your friends on various matters? Of course, yes! But why did you choose a specific person to give you the necessary inputs about your issue? You would answer that your friend knows you well and would be able to suggest you a way out of the situation. But then how can someone just like you or someone who can understand you, give you an advice that you can’t yourself think of…? May be I am asking too many questions causing confusion. Now let me add order in this chaos.

The simple reason why you ask your friends on various matters you are trapped in, is because your friends are not themselves, in any way, trapped in your issues. Yes, they give a new dimension to your troubles, one which your brain would not be able to think because its stressed. They try and be honest with the problem without any preconceived notions about anything. Your friends, in most cases, be as impartial to the problem as possible. That’s the best thing to do but sometimes it can be harmful.

At times you also need assurance. You need to make yourself believe what you are/will be doing is/would be correct. And in order to make your heart believe what is being done is correct, the brain devises a cunning plan. It describes with awesome justification that what you have planned to do for the problem is absolutely correct. Your friend, unaware of all the dynamics of your problem, also agrees with the brain and finally you do what the brain suggests. This plan often falters if the brain leaves loopholes while describing the problem.

So probably the best person to ask for an advice on your problems would be someone as unrelated to the issue as possible. And you should be honest enough to tell them everything, yes everything! Because that would form an appropriate base of the solution they might suggest. That’s the nature of advice, the more you explain the issue, the better the advice can be!
