DON'T WORRY BE HAPPY - Inspiration
"You know, I'm about to take my car and run it off a cliff! OK? DO YOU GET IT NOW?!!!!!" I can hear the crickets, I really can. Infact they are singing right now! Silence. I'm waiting for your answer my dear friend. Silence. Oh mercy mercy me, the kind gentlemen is about to speak! Well I just can't wait to hear the wisdom that will spill from his educated mouth. "Look G, don't worry....all will work out ok. All is good." Now before I decide to go further with this hub, I just need a little moment to catch my breath and SCREAMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!! DON'T WORRY?!!!!!! THAT IS ALL YOU HAVE TO SAY?!!!! AFTER ALL THE TIME I HAVE SPENT HELPING YOU WITH YOUR EGO, YOUR PROBLEMS AND EVERYTHING ELSE?!!!!!!!!! REALLY?!!!!! I HAVE NEVER EXPECTED ANYTHING BACK FROM ANYONE MY WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE, BUT REALLY?!!!!!! OK, I'm done now. Now that you heard my rant I will now explain what this hub is about.
Give and Take....
My point is that most people worry. Yes this is true, but how many people can go to someone and expect them to calm them down or make them feel better? Without having to go and pay someone to help them. I mean real friends or people who really give a damn. Try it once, I dare you. Go to someone who you think is a really close friend and say something REALLY serious. Don't lie to put them in shock. Just express a real emotion without editing your words to suit them. See how they react. I tell you most people will give you one or two lines and will think that is fine. This is what most people have time for.
Well I never give people two lines or calm them down in one sentence. Infact I give them everything I have. I always have been this way. If a friend or loved one needs me, I am always there 100%. All of my knowledge and experiences rolled into one there for them to take in. I'm really good at it. I'm a really good listener and the conversation is never about me. Infact I probably could have been a successful psychologist if I pursued helping people full time as a career. I always give my best and I hope that at the end of the conversation the person will feel better and worry less. That makes me feel great joy to know that I helped in some way.
There is a lot of worry out there now. Just look around you and slow down a minute as you really take it in. A lot of people who you know or do not know are having a very hard time and most of the time you would never know it. Why? Well because most people do not say what is really happening and they frost it all when they explain WHY THEY ARE WORRYING!!!!
Ok, let's take a worry that really is no big deal. I'm worried that my writing here has taken a backseat because of other's "worries" including mine.
Trying to juggle raising my kids with a career in entertainment is not easy. Infact I do not have a nanny and I'm on my own most of the time. I hire people to look after my kids when I work on a project or travel quite far away. And when I am far away like on business in Europe, all I do is WORRY ABOUT MY KIDS! It just never ends. Never!!!! Infact the older I get, the more I worry!!!!!
A few of my favorite hubbers have disappeared from hubpages and frankly I AM WORRIED because I care. Someone very close to me has decided not to comment here anymore and wants to keep our exchange "off the world wide web." I understand but I miss their comments. I have been so busy that I have lost a lot of my regular followers and I am worried that I will NEVER be a Level 7 or 8 commenter here on Hubpages!!!! I'm not REALLY worried, it was just something that makes me giggle to myself!!!!! I thought this whole "Level thing" is very entertaining. There must be something wrong with me and NOW I AM WORRIED!!!!!
All kidding aside. If someone close to you or someone you know is hurting. Remember to take the time to listen to them and really take it in. Give them whatever you got and after you see the smile on their face, you will know that you gave them more then most people do.
