A young lady sat in a public transport. An old grumpy lady came and sat by her side as she bumped into her with her numerous bags. The person sitting on the other side of her got upset, asking the young lady why she did not speak up and say something.
The young lady responded with a smile: “It is not necessary to be rude or argue over something so insignificant, the journey together is so short. I get off at the next stop.”
The response deserves to be written in golden letters in our daily behaviour and everywhere:
It is not necessary to argue over something so insignificant, our journey together is so short
If each one of us could realise that our passage down here has such a short duration; to darken it with quarrels, futile arguments, not forgiving others, ingratitude and bad attitudes would be a waste of time and energy.
Did someone break your heart? Be calm, the journey is so short..
Did someone betray, bully, cheat or humiliate you? Be calm, forgive, the journey is so short..
Whatever penalty anyone serves us, let’s remember that our journey together is so short..
Let us therefore be filled with gratitude and sweetness. Sweetness is a virtue never likened to bad character nor cowardice, but better likened to greatness.
Our journey together down here is really short and cannot be reversed…
No one knows the duration of his journey.
No one knows if he will have to alight at the next stop..
Let us therefore cherish and hold on to friends and family! Let us be calm, respectful, kind, thankful and forgiving to each other. Please remember: The journey here is so short…
