A young lady sat in a bus. At the next stop a loud and grumpy old lady came and sat by her. She squeezed into the seat and bumped her with her numerous bags. The person sitting on the opposite side of the young lady got upset and asked her why she did not speak up and say something.
The young lady responded “It is not necessary to be rude or to argue over something so insignificant. I am getting off at the next stop “
If each of us realized that our time here is short to darken it with quarrels, futile arguments, discontentment and a fault-finding attitude, it would only be a waste of time and energy.
Let us stay calm, the journey is so short. No one knows the duration of this journey. So let us be respectful, kind and forgiving to each other and fill ourselves with gratitude and happiness.
If I have ever hurt you, I ask for forgiveness. If you have ever hurt me, you already have my forgiveness.
After all, our journey together is so short!!!!
