Why You Should Understand Others' Pain...

We often tend to ignore the deep emotions and feelings of other people...

Some of us also believe that emotions are also made-up and are fake...

As a result, we fail to understand the other person completely!

I strongly discourage such mentality...

Well, here is Michael Jackson's handwritten note to the TIME Magazine in the year 1988:

Here is what he says:

Like the old Indian proverb says, do not judge a man until you’ve walked 2 moons in his moccasins. Most people don’t know me. That is why they write such things in which most is not true. I cry very very often because it hurts and I worry about the children, all my children all over the world, I live for them. If a man could say nothing against a character but what he could prove, history could not be written. Animals strike not from malice but because they want to live. It is the same with those who criticize, they desire our blood not our pain. But still I must achieve, I must seek truth in all things, I must endure for the power I was sent forth, for the world, for the children. But have mercy, for I’ve been bleeding a long time now. M.J.

MJ suffered a great deal of pain...but there was nobody to support him...or help him...

On similar lines, here is an SMS received by my dad..which I feel summarises this entire post:

There is no market for your sorrows...
So don't advertise your feelings...
Instead display your attitude..

What have you got to say about this?
