The emotional infections.

“Don’t expect life to be fair. It is not fair or unfair. It is just the way it is. And it has always been this way. Even when you were not here.”


The best description I have come across of the question ‘what is immune system?’ is that to see what immune system is, just see what happens to a dead body. Yes! Once you die, it only takes a few weeks for bacteria, microbes, parasites etc. to feast on your body until all that is left is a skeleton. And it happens because your immune system has shut down, and the door is left wide open…

Something similar happens even in life. When you are weak and fragile, you suddenly see things around you changing in unexpected ways. People around you start speaking with a different tone, pitch and volume. The whole treatment changes – you are taken advantage of, or even worse, for granted. Yes! You discover that you are lonely and have suddenly become everyone’s target.

Actually you are wrong. You have not ‘become’ a target now. You were always a target. It’s just that now you are a soft one.


And, don’t you know that…“It is easy to chew a soft thing”.
