G is for Gobbledegook which means a complicated language that is difficult to understand.

We can always talk in the most normal way when we are calm and thinking rationally. Everything is right on track and we know it. But what happens when there is pain or discomfort? Does speaking in a rational manner seem to be possible? While it might sound wrong but it is not possible to speak in a rational way when in pain. It almost is impossible to understand what the person wants to convey when they’re hurting.

There are emotions and memories along with possible future scenarios that are constantly running on their mind all day. Discussing even the minuscule errands with them can be disastrous. Yes, it’s true. When there are problems and sadness, it seems no one can understand what you’re trying to convey. It all looks too complicated for another person to understand.

If you see any one from your circle go through something as such, look for the signs. I’m saying signs because no one walks with a sign board stating they’re going through some problem. They’ll always have a smile when something good has happened but when sad, they’ll wear a smile like no other; that fake smile cannot be detected. Hence look for the signs when you see them speaking in a language that you cannot understand. It might not make sense. That’s your cue. Make sure you don’t leave them alone. No one likes to be alone. No one!

D is for Desultory which means lacking purpose or enthusiasm.

What is life without a purpose? Before you get too serious, let me pitch in by saying think on this aspect with regards to your current situation. When you wake up in the morning, what’s the purpose that keeps you going through life’s troubles all day? It can be money, passion, situations etc.

But there’s also a moment when that purpose just vanishes in thin air. Just gone, poof! Maybe we all have gone through that at one or more stages in this lifetime.I have gone through that a lot of times already but I choose to highlight two of those moments with you today. Both of them are from the time I was in search of a job.

I had sleepless nights with thoughts, plans, hate and doubt filled inside of me the first time. Sometimes I questioned if I’m fit enough. On other nights I’d dream of getting a good job soon and finally not be judged by everyone’s preying eyes. I did however not waste time on my hands. Firstly, learnt to swim. Secondly, I was overweight and lost 12 kilos in a span of 4-5 months and was in the best shape of my life. Also, I kept writing and believe it or not, there was money coming in form of sponsored posts, contests etc.

I did survive that stage. So will you. All you need to do is to eliminate desultory. Learn something whether it is to cook, drive, a new skill, language etc. It’s the purpose of learning that should never diminish within you. If that purpose is dead, you’ll always have this emptiness that’ll eat you up every night. Doing something is better than nothing. Do it with clear intent and you’ll never be the same person ever. You’ll be better.
