Sometimes what a person needs is not a brilliant mind that speaks, but a patient heart that listens. – Anonymous
Human beings are social animals. We need someone with whom we can share our feelings and share our opinions genuinely without any fear and dilemma. Life has a purpose and a specific meaning. We need to find someone who is happy with us and is generous and helpful, one who understands us and feels our pain.
We do not need someone who will just advise us and tell us the instructions, and rather we need someone who will understand our feelings and think for our goodwill and happiness. We need to learn how to understand this world works and how to face difficulties in life.
Sometimes we do not need intelligence and highly capable people who will advise us about our future and examine our next moves. In situations of trouble and mental instability, one should learn how to stay calm and composed and think twice before making any decision.
Sometimes silence can speak a thousand words and depict a strong idea or meaning. Silence should not be interpreted as the absence of words but as something which represents more than just words.
It is important to know the fact that silence speaks. Remember that having someone who listens to us and always tries to help us in situations of trouble and distress is actually a blessing. He or she can be a friend or someone else.
Remember that intelligence and brilliance are sometimes unable to solve a few problems because they can only be solved by the heart. Sometimes people actually need someone who can stand by their side and heal them emotionally.
Moreover, listening to others will also help one to understand new things and analyze the world from other perspectives and therefore have a better understanding of life. We should also inculcate good values that we have learned from others.
