Be Understanding !!!

Whenever I feel tempted to judge others through the prism of my limited view, I shift my focus to understanding them. Whenever I am about to lose my temper and throw a fit, I imagine the other person to be a small child. This automatically calms me down and makes me more sympathetic.

Help a person who is passing through a bout of depression !!!

You’ll be doing a great selfless service by helping a person who is passing through a bout of depression. Remember, depression doesn’t come up suddenly; a series of incidents makes a person depressed. If you really want to help a depressed person then don’t interfere by nagging, pushing, giving them moral lectures and burdening them with “shoulds” & “shouldn’ts.” Give them space, time and unconditional support. Let them know that you’re around and that it’s human to  pass through such a phase. Let them understand that you’re not judging them so that they feel comfortable enough to open out to you. ~Latika Teotia

Empathy wins hearts !!!

When people react or feel touchy over very small non issues, don’t take things to heart- be grounded and draw strength from your inner self. Be patient with them and learn to focus on the good in them. Ignore their shortcomings and stop seeing them through the magnifying glass of what you perceive to be right. After all they are human beings and you are not aware of their problems or what they have been through. Take time to understand people instead of forming opinions. Empathize with them, remember empathy wins hearts. ~Latika Teotia

Choose to be kind, gentle and full of grace !!!

This life is already very difficult for a lot of people. With age almost everyone has scars and we all are so very fragile. So, instead of reacting to anything, respond and try to understand. Choose to be kind, gentle and full of grace. ~Latika Teotia

Instead of retaliating learn to respond !!!

Instead of retaliating learn to respond. Have the courage to accept your flaws and the serenity to face, correct and overcome them. If someone fights with you, make that person see reason. Respond with love to those who hate you. Do not condemn those who oppose you. The world is a beautiful place and you have but one life. Don’t waste it. Aim for peace of mind. ~Latika Teotia
