Explanations!! Is It Even Necessary?

Explanations!! Is It Even Necessary?

3 mins 242 3 mins 242

There will be times in your life where you will be whirled with problems

A time when you take a single leap, you are beaten to grounds with numerous challenges which not even comes one by one, 

It comes surmounting you, pushing you, slapping you, isolating you, cornering you to the helpless walls simultaneously

A time when you forget to breathe and with no time left reacting to what you are already envisaging

A time where your confidence is crumbling to ashes

A time where your hopes are being shattered into pieces

A time where you are ready to forfeit even before trying

A time when you are needy than you think

A time when you are helpless even to seek help


It is the time where more people strides towards you to tell them what is going on

This is an important time where you are instinctively cautioned about saying or explaining them

There is a big difference between saying and explaining

May be I wish you could be a little more careful in securing that little of tinge energy towards not draining in to some energy vampires

I certainly appreciate when people just shy away silently without questions upon looking at you

And certainly not for people who wanted to dig into you for more explanations even when you are the worst emotional turnmoils

Because not everyone have the same expectations

When you tend to sketch an outline of your problems to a person who does not know the head or the tail of the story


The least that can happen to you is that you are counteracted with more secondary questions 

Or they tend to fix a head and tail for your story based on their assumptions

Likewise, when you utter a single word of your problem to a person who does not know the head or the tail of your story, may be you are provoked by the generalisation that they bring in to scene

Similarly, when you begin narrating your story, there are people who dissapear at the second half of the story as it is not entertaining enough, nor you are entertaining enough in your communication

So, listeners vary in their needs and diversify according to their actions

But to a victim, all they have is that one need which is to be well understood 

And not poking them with too many questions for attaining clarity of their story

Because let me tell you listeners, you will never gain enough clarity because its someone else's story


So getting clarity is an impossible means to an end unless you are being that part of the story 

To all those listeners and the speaker's club who preach about the victims need to be communicative enough

It is not that we are unable to talk, but we are unable to explain with the least of the vitality

It is not that we don't know to talk, but we are unconvinced about your listening capabilities

It is not that we are shy to express our needs, but we are dreaded about our needs being tweaked on your assumptions

It is not that we don't know to talk, but we don't want to talk nor we don't have even the energy to utter


And I knew you will still blame us like how will the problems be understood without voicing out

And we do understand your deepest concerns

But may be our requirements are slightly varying here

Sometimes, we require someone who better understand us and not our problems, 

And may be we are not in need of reconciliation of our problems

May be all that we need is a long weep or a long sleep

May be all that we need is that little tap on your shoulders without tapping onto the roots of our problems

Because at the end, it is my problem and not yours

So, its our story and it neither will be yours 

So explaining my tale to you, is it even necessary when the actual story is still preferably mine?
