Daily Prompt: Quirk of Habit

As the saying goes ‘ A chronic patient is a half doctor’ it fits me and this was my quirky habit to come up with a medicine every time someone complains of his/her problem or sickness to me. Headaches? Take this. Stomach upset?  Take this.   Apart from being a chronic patient, my maternal uncle and aunt both were Ayurvedic Doctors. I have studied a lot of books on Homeopathy so my mind was full of medicines all the time. Actually people tell you about their problems   just to share, not for advice or preaching, and here I was searching for  the root cause of their problem and what they should do or not do. I know it was annoying but I couldn’t stop myself.

Youngsters hated this habit but my mother ,my in-laws and few friends were pleased with me as they thought that I listen to their woes seriously and every time came up with a solution and that was my only solace.  since long I have corrected myself and never give advice until I’m asked for.



About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing thought, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  5. One thing about knowing and not telling the answer to someone’s problem is this: eventually they finally notice that small smile on your face that says:”I know the answer, but I’m not telling until you ask.” Sort of like when someone gets the winning card at poker or whatever. Totally irritating for the viewer, but great fun for the smiler.


    • This is not the case with me dear. Keeping quiet is for those who get irritated by giving advices. With friends and near and dear ones you can’t keep mum if you know the answer. This piece is strictly about medicines
      Thanks for your visit and comment..
