Consoling our own minds indicate we have some regrets. Do you agree?At times we console our minds by saying different things to ourselves. During the moment of grief, we need consolation and there are friends and family members who console us in different ways. This consolation is quite different from consoling our own minds much later after a particular incident. Remember the story of the fox and the grapes? The fox after trying a lot couldn't eat the grapes which he desired so much at the beginning. When it became impossible the fox consoled its mind by saying that there is no point in eating the grapes since they are sour. It's better to have something that tastes nice.
Many times after we are unsuccessful to carry out a task we try to console ourselves by saying what has happened has happened for good, otherwise, it could have brought numerous problems. If we closely look into it, we will find there is a regret associated with these consolations. Though consolation heals the mind if you do not have regrets you do not have to console yourself. Any regret affects the mind and makes it injured. Keep your mind healthy and fit so that you do not have to console it every time.
