Saw the post in Shravan's blog on NOW and this just popped in my mind. Not even sure whether there is such a quote or if it just got made in my mind. Whatever I just liked it.
Live for the present in the best way that you can,
future will unfurl beautifully for you.

All that people want is a listening board. A listening board that listens with rapt attention and responds with remarks like - oh really good…… that is wonderful……..you are amazing etc. when something positive is told. And - oh my god.....why did that happen to you.....oh you poor little thing…. I know you are not at fault....why should life be so cruel to you etc. when something negative or sad is told. But remember, something to this effect is only to be responded. Think before you decide to give suggestions/solutions/advice that do seem reasonable. Remember you are only needed as a listening board and not an advising board.

I have a right to my thoughts. They may be good, they may not. They may be right, they may not. If my thoughts are not right or good, then I have the option of either understanding where it is not right and correcting it. I also have the option of accepting suggestions given by near and dear ones and correcting. I also have the option of just leaving the topic.
If my thoughts are right and good, I could share them with my near and dear ones. But it should be left to them to accept or not. I should not thrust it down their throat just because I feel it right or good.
I should remember that what is right and good for me need not necessarily be the same for others. I should give them their living space...and not live life for them.
(The word “I” usually implies a feeling of ego in a person. But here I felt it better to use the word to teach myself a lesson.)
