"You are my Magic" and Other Stories on Empathy

 
Mini Stories on Empathy


“You need to be listened to”

“Why do you get angry so fast? Don’t you over react about trivial issues?” he asked her.

“Is it so? Never really thought about it. I think my parents were too busy with their own problems.” she replied.

“Is the anger directed against your parents? Or there is a deeper need or an unexpressed emotion.” he asked her gently.

“Can you tell me what that unexpressed emotion is, in your view? Or should I do a deeper introspection?” she felt the need for an introspection.

“I think it is your need for being listened to. It seems there was nobody to listen to you, when you wanted to share your feelings.” he told her affectionately.

“I think you have hit the nail right on the head.” she replied with a vibrant look. She was fortunate to find an answer to a question which was actually yet to surface.

You are My Magic"

"To be honest, I have started feeling 'J' Of late, I have been feeling possessive about you. If you talk to someone too much, I don't like it. If you smile while talking with someone, my heart starts beating faster." she told him.

"A bit of a possessiveness is a sign of a healthy relationship. It shows you are putting emotions in a relationship and are feeling vulnerable." he replied.

"And you have so many magic partners around you. I am just one of them, so insignificant, isn't it? " she looked sad almost.

"They are my magic partners, and you are "My Magic"" he genuinely wanted to cheer her up.

And she was his magic in any case.

All Pain, All Gain

More she experienced other's pain, more touching her stories became. Yet more empathetic she became, more pain she (had to) overcame. The more tears her own eyes shed, the more hearts her stories (made) bled.

More gain followed more pain. Even more pain followed more gain. The beautiful paradox was that the deeper her pain would become, the more vibrant and charismatic her smile would become.

No wonder, one fine day she became the goddess of empathy herself or "empathy personified". The life, and so called success of an inspirational storyteller is perhaps the most paradoxical of all successes.

Yet a greater paradox of life is the "seed of pain's" glory...... for silently sprouts within, the most joyful story, the most joyful story.
