"I have always despised the whining yelp of complaint and cowardly resolve." ~ Robert Burns.
Ok ~ Let's get this out of the way right up front ~ Some of us are not too good at listening to people when they whine. It's a problem usually caused by our jumping to next actions and proposed solutions instead of... Well listening ~ and letting a person vent about how tough things are for them. A lot of people believe that lacks sympathy ~ Perhaps.
What's strange is when we meet someone who has all the reasons in the world to complain about their lot in life, but don't, we feel a huge amount of sympathy toward them. It's when people talk about their difficulties ~ that the words to a famous song start to play in our head.
It's one of the most powerful pieces of music ever written. But do you know what the words are translated in English? ~ Well it ends with ~
"Everyone weep with me".
