Balancing Act: A Tight Rope Walk

In our day to day life at so many instances, we get into a dilemma on what kind of decision to take, which direction to take…. When we have only two options and one is right and another is wrong, its easy to choose. But when we have multiple options which are not wrong, then its very tough to choose what is right.

Taking a case to elaborate: We know that helping others is good, ┬áso blindly we cannot go with the option of helping others. Later we may realise that the help rendered is misused. So at any next instance we will be unsure of what path to take.. Here helping others on our own, is also good and not meddling into other’s affairs until help is requested is also good. so which path to take? Taking a single stand and applying it to all situations will not yield any benefit. Applying our common sense and treating each case individually will only help. So this is called balancing act…….

Balancing Act is tough and many times we do not even know how to balance. Best possible solution is to assess the pros and cons properly before taking any decision. Most of the times we take a path based on the material benefits and leave out the emotional and spiritual benefits. These soft benefits are more valuable so we should always consider these aspects.
