Be the holding hand

The most difficult thing in life is to console somebody. And for a person like me who doesn't exhibit emotions very openly, it becomes even more difficult. These are the moments when sincere and heartfelt words appear to be cheesy and superficial. Consoling words are sincere and comforting only if they are backed by a sincere action. If you can't be of any help or are not willing to take out sometime for the people who need help, then better don't  give false hope. There are people who would pose to be your true well wishers and to satisfy their curiosity  would gather from you every detail of what has happened. Nobody needs lecturing, preaching or trite cliches.
A warm hug, a sincere nod, a patient ear and a holding hand is all that you need to console somebody.

i agree with you, preaching or advices arent the best way to comfort a hurt soul.. just be with them, thats the best u can do.

You couldn't have put things better. I know I will sound entirely lame if I console someone coz I am not used to it, and like you, I am an introvert too. I agree with the hug theory :)

thts there. whn u angry all the flowery words seem dead. when u r stubborn all the lectures goes waste. there are time we want to be alone and think of wht we did, no body can help except ourselves

This situation often come in real life and more so when u r dealing with ur net frens.Where scope of doing something is quite limited.

Suree said...

consoling is not my cup of tea,if a person is in some sadness, let him cry/feel for that.just give them some time , they will be fine...

Great article. Clothing style has changed and with that the salwar kameez patterns has also changed to meet the need of latest style. Recently I visited the site www.kaneesha.com and I was surprised to see the wide range of designs they have and couldn't resist and bought one salwar kameez.
