The Poison That is Doubt

I came across a very good short article on doubt today and have to share.

Doubt is the feeling of uncertainty that bothers a human being. One starts posing several questions regarding a thing, regarding which one is doubtful. Having doubts in mind is an indication of how confused you are. It indicates that there is nothing clear in your mind. In case you have a doubt in your mind, which you feel like sharing and clarifying then go ahead to clarify the doubt. In the words of William Shakespeare, “Modest Doubt is called the beacon of the wise.” Doubting each other, when in a relationship can prove very fatal in deciding the future course of the relationship. When you doubt your partner, you show less trust in him or her. He or she then even reciprocates, likewise. In the words of Buddha, “There is nothing more dreadful than doubt. Doubt separates people; it is a poison that disintegrates friendships and breaks our present relations. It is a thorn that irritates and hurts; it is a sword that kills.”
