Some people can go on cursing their destiny. With such people you can choose to get into one of these modes:
- Console – say every dark cloud has a silver lining. Believe me it never helps.
- Sympathize – tell them you understand. They will shoot back saying no one can understand until put through the same situation.
- The hybrid, sympathize and console - say every dark cloud has a silver lining. Tell them you understand. Believe me it never helps. They will shoot back saying no one can understand until put through the same situation.
- Listen and keep quiet – Say hmm..hmm..hmm.. and mind your own business. Do this and they will pick up all dark clouds of your life and show there is absolutely no silver lining in your dark clouds. All such people will get together and conspire and prove to you that your glass is not half but three-fourth empty and that there is a hole at the bottom of your glass. Whatever you do it will never fill up.
Try to avoid the fourth option. This can ruin your life.
