Have you ever felt like you are alone in the midst of a great crowd!
It seems like no one understands what’s going on inside you!
You feel broken and shattered yet unable to interpret the cries of your heart!
The irresistible pain in body and heart is getting heavier all the time!
The only question that punches you – “Why”…
That’s the picture I will draw for “being emotionally drained”.
I was doing all my works, didn’t take a day leave from office, killed headaches and weakness with balms and glucose, smiled just to hide some pain, tried to stay aloof, pretended everyone ‘I am okay’, juggled around the unanswerable “why” but How Long?
Being regularly hoarded for a month in such malady, all that I did is wound me and others as well, the passion of work was paused and creativity was lost in the dreadful shouts of drained emotion. And unknowingly I did lot of mistake.
We never like to catch hold by such woeful situation in life whereas in reality it is quite obvious in human life to be emotionally drained. Being human we are always park by emotions. Sometimes those emotions aid our life and sometimes those emotions drain our life as well. But some of the major reasons that easily drain my emotion are:
Words of People: Words are like two edged swords. A slight careless use of words can cause painful cuts on human heart and the only way to aid those cuts is the right use of words again. If your words have hurt somebody it is better to apologize immediately rather than defending yourself with all sorts of excuses.
The Bible says,
Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt,
so that you may know how to answer everyone.
Dealings of People: Your dealings are the content of your character. Even a child can understand who loves him and who is pretending. Often in our sagacity of hypocrisy we forget that, there is a pay-day someday!
The Bible Says,
Do to others as you would like them to do to you.
Egoistic Behavior: Egoism slices your relationship every day. Every relationship has it’s intrinsic worth and reflective splendor and that beauty cannot be maintained by one person. My way or High way… is a colonial attitude which has its day to thrash down and the breakdown causes greater damage to both.
Again the Bible says,
Live in harmony with each other. Don’t be too proud to enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don’t think you know it all!
If the wounds are not cleaned and treated properly at proper time, it can cause greater damage and often we find its impact on people saying, “I find rest in the hang-over of spending day on Marlboro and Heineken…”
While in the Cubicle of Emotionally drained nights I just looked at God and sobbed like a baby because I know my tears have greater worth for Him and He alone can better understand my inner-pain. Human can console me with 1000 words yet can never replace the pain of my heart into a joyful day but God Can…
The Psalmist says,
God, you keep track of all my sorrows.
You have collected all my tears in your bottle.
You have recorded each one in your book.
In the world of billion people it is only your true friend, who can easily identify the pain in your tone and your story from your eyes. We all have had at least one such blessed person in our life.
The heartfelt counsel of a friend is as sweet as perfume and incense.
Parked by drained emotions is obvious but aiding its wound within the due time brings joy and glory to our life.
God bless you!
