Not All Wounds Are Visible


We may see a person who is always happy and smiling, but that does not mean that he or she is without complications or trouble in life. It is critical to recognise that the people around us frequently suffer from a variety of problems. Certain people are expressive enough to talk about their problems, but many people prefer to remain introverts and are uncomfortable opening up in front of others.

It is important to understand that not all wounds are visible. You may believe that a person’s happy face indicates that he or she is actually very happy, but this may not be the case in reality. Because all wounds are not visible, we have no way of knowing whether the person is truly hurting deep within! That becomes increasingly difficult to discern! When we walk into someone’s life, it is critical that we be gentle and decent in our approach. We never know which of our actions will end up hurting them. We should attempt to analyse the situation from their perspective.

Remember that life isn’t that simple. It takes a lot of patience to build the life we have today, and dealing with our emotions is one of our most difficult tasks. However, we should always lend a helping hand to those around us because we never know what they are going through!

Always be gentle and humble when making amends in other people’s lives. You should be patient enough to realise that not everyone is the same. As a result, rather than pulling them out of such humiliating situations, you should not add to their stress. Make an effort to make friends with those around you. Be courteous and gentle with them. Listen to them more than you speak. Nurture them with love and compassion, and you’ll discover that the world isn’t such a bad place after all!

  1. This is so true and shows how important attentive listening is as a skill. You don’t need to be a counselor or therapist to develop this skill. It is a skill we all need to develop healthy relationships in our lives. Love the post and thanks for sharing!

      Great point on listening. To listen, we need to make a conscious effort not to just hear what people are saying but to take it in, digest it and understand. Not only does listening enhance your ability to understand better and make you a better communicator, it also makes the experience of speaking to you more enjoyable to other people.

    So true…gems of wisdom…will remember this as I go through life…in our own pain, we sometimes end up hurting others assuming that they have no pain themselves
