Reader Response to Comparing Notes on Pain

Last week I used the physical illness of three people to suggest the point that pain is an everyday phenomenon and that we just have to accept it in stride.

Reader Response to Comparing Notes on Pain_1Reader CL made the following comment:

Sure admire and agree with your friends “Kate” and her aunt’s positive perspectives…

Over the last few years, I think I’ve learnt to be content with myself and not expect anything from anyone. Though happy that I’m rather independent on a day to day basis. It’s a bonus if I can make others happy too at work or outside of work.

To make others happy –what a beautiful and practical idea. We need more people like you, CL, at work, outside of work and everywhere in between!

Reader AL sent in his advice and best wishes to everybody:

Life is impermanent, and so are all things. It is important that we all live every moment fully and leave all the sorrows and regrets behind. Since we have so little control of our lives it is not advisable to really think too much of the future as it is full of uncertainties. We should try to show our affection and care to our dear ones whenever we can as we don’t know if ourselves or our loved ones will be there in the next instance.

I may sound a bit pessimistic, but unfortunately life is unpredictable!

So I wish you and all of your friends do make good use of every moment in life and live the fullest!

AL is a philosopher. It’s a good thing that how true his guidance is.

My teacher from secondary school, Miss H, didn’t point out any grammatical errors on my article this time. Instead, she told me these encouraging words:

Really appreciate the attitude of your friends, Kate & KH as well as yourself in facing pain and sickness. May Kate’s ‘co-existence’ with cancer be long lasting.

Take care. God bless.

Reader Response to Comparing Notes on Pain_2Miss H, did I really not forget any conjunctions or use too many flat adverbs?

It’s nice to see my readers write back. Now I know at least three people didn’t put my mail in the spam basket. Thank you, CL, AL and Miss H!

More importantly, it proves true that people do look out for each other. Even people who don’t know each other do. Not everybody is as caring as some of you are. But if we keep faith and and keep looking, we’ll find each other.

It’s nice to see my readers write back. Now I know at least three people didn’t put my mail in the spam basket. Thank you, CL, AL and Miss H!
