Tuesday Thoughts

“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal”. From an Irish headstone”    Richard Puz

Do you believe that ‘Love’ truly hurts’?

What is your frank opinion my friend?

Are you the aggrieved party, always in matters of ‘love’?

Then read this.

What does everyone in general say?

“Everyone says Love hurts, Yes, you read it right.

But that is not true.

Loneliness hurts.

Rejection hurts.

Losing someone hurts.

Envy hurts.

Everyone gets these things confused with ‘Love’, but in reality ‘Love’ is the only thing in this world that covers up all pain and makes someone feel wonderful again.

Love is the only thing in this world that does not hurt”    Unknown

Are you aware of the Power of Love?

“Love is a cycle…

When you love, you feel you get hurt

When you get hurt, you hate

When you hate, you try to forget

When you try to forget, you start missing

When you start missing, you will eventually fall in ‘love’ again” Unknown

I am sure by now you have realised that we can’t survive without ‘love’ and love is a misunderstood 4 letter word!

Love never hurts….only our expectations do hurt us.

Please share your thoughts, my friend.


Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Pull up a seat

The topic reminded me of the recent ‘Sofagate’ event where the first female chief of The European commission, Ursula von der Leyen was hurt by not having a chair to sit in during a meeting.

“If my strength intimidates you, I hope you realise that’s a weakness of yours”  Unknown

Thank you.

The axe forgets,the tree remembers

One of the finest proverbs

“The axe forgets, what the tree remembers” African Proverb

One can look for wisdom in many ways from this proverb.

Simply put it, the bullies forget what the victim remembers. It can be from physical bullying to cyberbullying or office bullying, school bullying and list is long.

Another example is the borrower often forgets to return to the lender.

The proverb also reminds us that we are all like trees. Some or strong and some are weak. But still, we are all vulnerable.

We hurt others by our words, especially the ones who love us the most.

Victims always remember the hurt because of the scars. It’s much easier to advise them by saying ‘Just move on’!

But then life is life

Nothing can be done about this. So victims instead of talking revenge must adjust with the new realities and make efforts not to look at the scars which can only aggravate the agony.

Just like the trees trying to grow fresh from those injuries and try to bloom with energy and with thoughts of better opportunities ahead.

In this context, I would like to remember this particular quote on the power of ‘Words’

“Your words are strong enough to inspire or destroy a spirit and to break a heart. So be careful and think before you speak or act” Sherry Riter

Whatever you do or say, be a responsible person.

The worst part is the irony of life

“When the axe came into the woods, many of the trees said, ‘At least the handle is one of us.'”  Turkish Proverb

Thank you.

Everyone is going to hurt you

Pavement Discussion

“The truth is everyone is going to hurt you.You just got to find the ones worth suffering for”  Bob Marley.

Life is another name for misery

Even if you are

  • Good,kind,compassionate,generous,understanding,sincere
  • Truthful,helpful,virtuous,up to the mark,right minded
  • Right thinking,principles,satisfying,exceptional
  • Wonderful,sweet,marvelous,honest,valuable
  • Positive and acceptable

I can go on and on…..remember this…..

Everybody whom ever you come across in your life is going to hurt you one way or another and at one time or another.This is the rule.

There is no getting around it.

If you claim, you are never hurt, simply it means you are lying.

How close are you to your people ?

Another rule of life is, the more you are closer to a person….the greater the intensity of ‘Hurt’.

What you think, brings you the maximum happiness & joy….is the one which hurts you the most.

Nature is our teacher and never fails us by its very nature, but we fail to notice it.

You are aware of the idiom ‘There’s no rose without a thorn’. If you want to love someone, you must be willing to accept the’hurt’

Why everybody hurts everybody?

This is because we misunderstand the meaning of ‘Love’.

“Love is beyond sex and physical touch. Love is kind words, a reassuring smile, one that is not jealous or keeps a record of wrongdoings. Love is knowing without a shadow of a doubt that you will always be there for that person and they will always be there for you”.   unknown 

Also It reminded me of R.E.M’s song ‘EVERYBODY HURTS’.

What hurts the most ?

I am not talking about your disappointments because of your assumptions,presumptions or expectations going wrong and you getting upset.

I am also not talking about failures,injustice,betrayal or loneliness

The list can be never ending as per you !

But I have just one answer and that is ‘Words’

Why ?

Because, Words’ are powerful !

Words hurt more than action.

‘Words’ can cause lot of emotional pain.

“Stick & Stones may break my bones,but words will break my soul”

Intensity of the emotional pain becomes much more if these ‘words’ come from someone.who means everything to us.

Seriously do ‘words’ hurt ?

Words per se don’t hurt.It is the subjective meaning of each of us give importance to them,that alone hurts.

Strangely we can never forget the ‘Hurtful words’,though one is in mood to forgive.Check this link.
One can forgive,but can one erase the bitterness ?

” Dogs bite sometimes,people bite all the time,with their hurtful words ” Mehmuet Murat Ildan


Do you know the funny part of the ways of human beings ?

” some people hurt you and then act like you hurt them “

Thank you
