In school the other day Ojasvi stuck her forefinger under a closing desk.She told me that it hurt badly and she cried until Mrs X noticed and took her to the infirmery and stuck a bandaid.
'You know Chering,there is a clot below my nail and when the clot dries, it forms a scab'-
I know how painful crushing one's finger below the onslaught of a closing desk can be,it can make a fully grown person faint.
I told Ojasvi that and she replied with a sad expression on her face-'But I cried'.
I found myself saying,
'It is allright to cry when it hurts.'
How I needed to understand that myself.
