Why?

Why, that sad face? Do you want to understand why there are people in your life who would choose to hurt you than love you?

You want to understand why they make you feel unloved for one moment then cared for the next day. You want to understand why they seem inconsistent.

But did you ever try to understand them?

Did you go further from judging them? Did you care to understand why they do things the way they did?

Are you aware that they too are going through some personal pains but they do not bother to let you know for they do not like to upset you?

Did you ever try to know if they feel loved and respected by you? For if not, then why are you complaining if they do not seem to understand you if you do not understand them at all?

You want to understand why those things you expect do not happen. You want to understand why you cannot get the things you want. But did you ever try to understand why things happen the way you do not want them to be? Did you care to know the reasons behind?

You want to understand why life is not kind to you. But did you ever count your blessings? Did you ever try to look beyond your windows and see the sufferings outside which you find no time to look at because you are too self-focused?

You want to understand why you are like that. Is it because you are used to being understood and could get anything you want until some changes occurred?

You want to understand if those you detest understand you? For if not, then they should know what is in your heart and mind.

You owe them an understanding, too.

This life is not just about us. It is about others too and taking time to understand them a little more will lighten up your woes because you will discover that it is not you alone who is suffering, they are, too.
