A shadow of a doubt!A candlelight always casts a shadow when it is lit in the dark. Similarly, both truth and lie also cast a shadow of a doubt when it is spoken. Wherever a truth and lie is, there will be a shadow of a doubt. In other words, we can also say that doubt is a shadow of a truth and a lie. A shadow of doubt always follows the spoken words and the reactions of a people. Not everyone will have 100% trust and belief in the words spoken by every single person we meet. Doubt is not a pleasant condition but certainty is absurd. It is natural that a lie once spoken will forever cast a shadow of a doubt on every further word spoken by that person. Likewise, even if a person speaks a truth and if the one who listens to the words of that person doesn't believe the facts hidden inside the spoken truth, then the truth itself may create a doubt on the mind of the opponents. It is difficult to convince others beyond the shadow of a doubt.
Doubt continuously follows until a trust is built upon a person. It takes years to build trust and a matter of seconds to lose the trust earned. But once the trust is broken, the shadow of a doubt will forever follow a person. Even if we prevent our shadow of doubt from following others, sometimes some unexpected situation twists our mind and spoils everything.
Doubt is purely evil and it kills the faith we have in another person. Also, it sometimes ruins our own life, if we don't have a strong belief in ourselves and our capabilities. It is impossible to hide from the shadow of doubt cast upon us by others, but we can try to stop casting our shadow of doubt on others. Raising doubts or judging a person based on his or her past and directly jumping to a conclusion is totally unfair. So, instead of blindly doubting others, we can first verify and then trust. Clarifying and handling a situation proactively will prevent a shadow of doubt from entering into our lives.
