'That is how the world is.' Kaabel thought to himself.
Not that he had never heard of that before, it was just that he realised it and it went deep down his understanding. Standing alone amidst the woods in late autumn, contemplating, observing nature, this fact dawned on him.
Kaabel was dejected with life and he had multiple reasons to be depressed. Firstly, he had lost his job due to economic turmoil. Secondly, this had spiralled into various other problems, he had become impatient so much so, that his girl friend broke up with him. Friends were few and had distanced a bit owing to their busy schedules. Parents seemed to be sarcastic towards him and his approach to life.
All this was in stark contrast to the time when his career was on a high. Everyone who was a critic now was an admirer then. Kaabel felt lonely. He felt like ending it all. He walked to solitary places searching solace. Once while he was at a place with barren trees around him, he observed that birds flew away from those dry trees. Perhaps the same birds nested in those trees when the trees were green. 'That is how the world is.' Kaabel thought to himself.
He felt one with the lonely, desolated, barren trees. He discovered some solace. He stood there contemplating when he felt a connect with the trees and communication happened. The trees conveyed a message to Kaabel. The largest and the oldest tree said, 'Although we are barren and feel lonely, we stand strong. What you see today as dry and dead will be green, growing and generous to the world again, soon. Kaabel, all you need to do is survive and stand strong.'
Kaabel hugged his saviour and let his emotions flow free. After that motivational session with his newfound friends, he stood strong and decided to be generous towards the world rather than being bitter.
