Journey…

Recently I heard an incident which touched me a lot… and taught me a great lesson of how we can be tolerant and forgiving for others…

A young woman was travelling on a bus and at one stop, an old woman got on the bus and came to sit next to that young woman… this old woman was quite grumpy and ill-mannered… and quite discourteously she shoved her bags into the leg space, colliding with her neighbour… grumbling and complaining too!!

A man who was observing this scene with irritation, couldnt remain quiet anymore so he said to the young woman… why are you not saying anything to this old woman… why are you not telling her to behave herself??

To this the young woman said: No problem… this is only for a little while… I get off at the next stop… so what does it matter… the journey together is so short anyway!!

These words are worth writing in golden letters…

we all face terrible attitudes and behaviours from people but the easiest way to put up with them is to remember that the journey together is so short… we dont know who will get off at the next stop… so why waste that short time in complaining, fighting, reacting and getting so angry and resentful? 

Be forgiving and be kind… the time together is so short anyway…
