You have not told anything wrong to your cousin since, I suppose, you had no ill intention. But it was not construed in good spirit. In this instant case, in future, please bear in mind advice should not be handed out to a person who may not heed taking that one. To the contrary, think, before giving to others your piece of suggestion. Otherwise, you are sure to be landed in unnecessary controversaries, like the one you are in.

Give your advice to the one who acts and appreciates you for that and not the other way around.

GOD is very compassionate with us in every way, need is to use those blessings which are the results of His bounties and thank Him for everything that He gives us. We should also share these bounties with our fellow-beings. I am the person who loves God and His Creations. I love my Creator and not fear Him. My children are adjusted to life, incommensurate, to their Karma and destiny. I have served as a Sr CGO for about 38 years in a Central Govt. Presently I am serving as an Adm Offer with an Engineering College. I am a spiritual person with liberal ways of thinking. I respect all the religions as I respect mine since I understand that all the religions are the pathways to a SINGLE ENTITY - paths for connecting with Him may be different but the ULTIMATE SOURCE IS ONE. I want to be a student till last day of my life. I am a homeopath also, which I pursue as a social service only. Happy moments, I take as God's Gifts, sad ones I take as His Test for me. I believe that He will surely assist me in this Test of His, come what may. Really. I have more belief in Him than I am on my own. You can comprehend my philosophy in life from my write-ups which I write while interacting with them. I firmly believe that every person has the special characteristic which other fellows cannot have and I respect that person as such. With the grace of Almighty God, a book entitled INNER THOUGHTS which could be purchased online from http://flipkart.com. This book is based on the topics which have been penned down. That is why it is rightly said if intentions are good, everything goes well with you.

  1. in French we say “le ton fait la musique…” = tone always does make the music… so, I presume the way(or manner) you told or suggested to your cousin to feed herself more(better) was not the one she’d expected from you – at that particular moment… remember that anxiety and/or stress are often “contagious”… in fact, I guess you do care for her health, but next time, try to avoid being too “overzealous”… 🙂

    1. Fact remains stress and/or anxiety are ‘contagious’ because of spread effect these have. Yet we have to fight these with will power and with grace of God. Also we have to avoid becoming ‘overzealous’ because of its negative tone. Though in real life it is easy said than done yet we can eradicate the negativity from our system and if it comes then we have not to allow it over-power us but to fight it out.

      Kindly accept my sincere thanks for your most appropriate comments.
