Sometimes, when the mind is tired and is feeling low, comforting is required. Comforting can take various forms. Right from what the depressed seek to what the offerer offers. The offering maybe philosophy, solace, consolation, pity, empathy. This apart, the wanting mind seeks solace and compassion the most. It is not the time to expend philosophy. Talking philosophy, inturn, weakens the mind further. And pity is the last option on the list.
I realised this last week. Perhaps, it's one of those important lessons to be learnt in life. Man learns through the years', isn't it?
