  1. I think you have great karma. I’m serious. You did not consciously precipitate anything. You didn’t know you’d dropped your phone. The boy’s voice called out. But in another sense, what “called out” was your own good heart to help you learn something about yourself that would make you stronger and even a better person than you already are. And now that you have shared this amazing story, this is wisdom that I can use. Thank you! Thank you so much for sharing.

    1. Agreed, but sometimes I just feel I don’t want to feel anything. I am myself a bit confused as to what I am saying, but it’s just that sometimes I like being out of both of these. Even if I don’t go through the happiness phase at least I do not get the sadness phase too.
      Am I even tiny bit clear? I wonder 😀

      1. Hmm… I feel restless and helpless that time.. I either listen to songs and sing in synchronization to feel like I am singing.. 😂
        Or I talk to my mom but just about studies and all.

  2. “SO? What do you do then? I don’t know what to do?” it is ok not to know what to do. just try and learn from those times. embrace both feelings/emotions. keep the happy deep inside , but not too deep , and pull them up when needed. the sadness is kept closer to the surface and to be easily discarded when complete like a layer of dead skin so new protection is brought forward.

    it is not easy to find a confidant to tell ones self to. i hope you do.

Your perception holds importance for me.
