It’s true, avoiding sick people is something I do on a regular basis. I know that may sound bad but let me explain. If I can avoid people who have a common cold I will. The only reason I do this is to avoid me getting sick myself. Judge me if you will but I like staying healthy. Any action for the cause of staying healthy is legit.
In Bangkok I have learned to use face masks and whether they actually work or not it gives me the feeling that I am protecting myself a little bit more. In public transportation in Thailand I almost always wear a face-mask like many of the locals.
Another kind or people I’m trying to avoid are those who find it necessary to talk about illnesses, diseases and other horrible things. Not just from their own life but from friends, family or total strangers they heard about.
I understand they may want to get sympathy for their situation or that of a family, friend or wife of coworker. I understand why they do it but sometimes they keep repeating it over and over again and then to me it feels like they are doing it to get attention but for me it feels like draining my energy.
Besides, I believe, it doesn’t help that person anyway. What I mean is, it doesn’t really help to get the person better again talking about how sick they are.
It’s not that I don’t care, I do, but what can I do about other people being sick? Also, and this is more important, I believe that talking about being sick is like the law of attraction. It’s all just energy and I don’t want negative energy, or sick energy in my life and try to avoid it whenever I can.
What we could do, if you must, tell me once about the person and I could send them love and good energy and wish them a speedy recovery.
Wishing everybody a happy, healthy and harmonious life!
