A woman lost her first child in a caesarean. Her agony was great but she was determined to heal. So, instead of turning her room to mourning parlour, and cry her soul out to attract the readily available pity of her friends and family, she decides to go out and heal others. She started doing charity works at motherless babies’ home. And once again, she becomes a mother; not just a mother to a child but to many children. She did a lot for the children. She gave them joy but they gave her much more; they gave her solace and the strength to heal.
Albert Schweitzer said, “I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know: the only one among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve.”
The reason why many people remain in pain is because they enjoy being sympathized with. They love the word, “sorry!” They like it when people pity them. They like people to notice their suffering.
Dan Kelly rightly said, “Heal another’s heart and in the process you will heal your own.” To make it out of your wilderness you need to stop receiving, and attracting the pity. You are not an object of pity. Rise above your predicaments and do something to make someone else’s life better. In the process, you will see your life getting better.
