As humans we are social beings.
We don’t work solo. We like forming teams. We like sharing work & it’s results.
It’s difficult to live without any expectation from others .
Everyday we come across situations,moments where we need aid from someone else. Right from the time we get up in morning to the time we go back to sleep at night. We need someone or the other.
We expect someone to fold our blanket. Our breakfast to be prepared. Our clothes to be ironed. Our work or study bag to be ready with all books & papers.
Our daily household chores like cooking, cleaning, making beds are small works. Still we expect someone else to do it. Sometime’s when we have to do it ourselves, we start getting upset.
We are so used to the help. We take those who help us for granted. We realise their true worth in their absence. We get disturbed. Our routine goes out of control.
One day may not be a problem. What is there is a natural calamity. When that helping person leaves us forever with no hope of returning, ever?
Our life would be completely upside down. not just for a day or two, but perhaps for years together.
There are people out there testing their patience & putting up with hunger. They are staying without a roof on their head. Poverty doesn’t fulfill any of their basic necessities.
Whom would they look out for help? Someone near to them or people around them. when they don’t get any help from these, then what? It’s difficult to imagine that pain, sadness,frustration & suffering.
Just think you are not sleeping in your comfortable rooms. How would you feel? Under the open sky by side of road? Without electricity? Without water?
Everyone can’t go to every other person in suffering. Accepted! But each of us can help those around us. Our family, our friends, our colleagues.
Every small act of kindness is like a seed. Water it & it’ll grow into a tree. It will bear fruit & the fruit bears the seed for another tree to be born.
We have so many expectations. Let’s learn to understand other people’s expectations. Let’s give a helping hand to those around us & inspire them to do the same for those around them. This will ensure that help will reach us when we are in need.
Finally we’d like to stop with a saying wise:
If every person cleans her/his house & her/his surroundings, the world would automatically be clean.
