The World Population was estimated to have reached 7.7 billion people as of November 2018. But even now when we scroll through our Fb or WhatsApp, we can see posts explaining loneliness;- quotes on loneliness, poems on loneliness etc… Some feel it, some provide platforms to expand it. Pages about Loneliness or Depression are trending on our social media. In spite of searching for these loneliness carriers, why can’t we say a “Hello” to one of our closed ones? No Insta post or a Whatsapp status can match a verbal Hello. Just think, our earth is covering with 7.7 billion people and still some of us are feeling alone. Does it make a sense?
Suppose you are travelling in a bus, and you got a severe chest pain or something. What will happen if you didn’t utter a single word to anyone? You will die! But if you have opened your mouth, others will reach to you and help you. Not just this! Almost every conflict or break up is a result of lack of communication. If you have a problem with someone, you should speak to that person and solve. Otherwise, he or she will never understand your situation. And finally, all these could lead to unnecessary fights, egos etc… Therefore at least say a Hello. Because sometimes a Hello could do miracles. It is the most powerful word against solitude. Therefore Suzy Kassem once said;
“Each time a person passes by you and you say ‘hello’, imagine that person turning into a candle. The more positivity, love and light you reflect, the more light is mirrored your way. Sharing beautiful hellos is the quickest way to earn spiritual brownie points. You should start seeing hellos as small declarations of faith. Every time you say hello to a stranger, your heart acknowledges over and over again that we are all family.”
When You feel sad or a bit lost, just reach out to one of your friends and say a “Hello”. One Hello could bring back many memories. Joy and the fun, which we thought lost a minute ago, can even get doubled. A Hello, could cut the distance. Turn enemy to friends, strangers to close Friends. You may feel unwanted or unloved. You may feel very lonely or depressed. But if you are ready to see this loneliness as a real bitch and open your heart to someone, the life will be restored in your own terms.
But today we are living in a world where people rarely shares their emotions. They are too busy to talk. Even when we travel on a bus or train, you can see people not looking on your face, but on their phones. There is no surprise that our Suicide rates are increasing. You know, every 40 seconds someone, somewhere in the world commits suicide. If at least one shares his feelings with someone, then his or her life might go back to a stable state.
Everything is communicating. Communication starts with synapses in our brain. If they didn’t communicate, we couldn’t taste, smell or feel anything. Even when our body runs on this fuel, why we humans hesitate to communicate? If you want to start a new friendship, say a Hello. If you want to restore a relationship, say a Hello. And even if you want to talk to your crush, say a Hello. Remember one thing, “If you don’t speak to people, then don’t expect them to speak to you”. Say a Hello, even if they don’t understand or hear. Because a Hello might start something new. Who knows!
