Every person is fighting with his own life. Everyone is suffering and trying to survive. Those who smile outside may be hiding many wounds in their heart and soul. No one can estimate the suffering of other person no matter how much we try.
We do not know how much the other is struggling with his life. Now a days we only care about our emotions we do not want to get hurt we do not want to be ignored we do not want to be cheated. We want the other person to give his all time thinking that we are the only one in his life. Unaware of the fact that he has to deal with other people. Unaware of the fact that he is also struggling for something else. For his living or may be for our living.
They may ignore you because of their problems but instead of misunderstanding them, try to understand their worries. Try to reduce their burden by relieving them. Try to reduce their pain by consoling them. If they do not talk with you whenever you want, it does not mean they do not love you. They may love you more than you can imagine.
However, feelings cannot feed someone they have to earn in order to make you to live with them they also have to care for family. They have to deal with people in order to protect you and their loved ones. So instead of increasing their worries and pain try to decrease their pain by understanding them and caring for them. Do not let them leave you. Love yourself and your loved ones and cherish them as long as you are with them.
I do remember meeting with people. I may forget our conversation but I do remember their way of talking. If I do not remember people’s faces, I do remember their way of looking on me. I am little different from world but I remember people who are burdened by me. I may forget the harsh words but I never forget their tone. I leave that place where I have no respect I do not choose a way, which do not lead me to my destination.
I may leave shores and prefer to be drowned if that hurt my self-respect. I do not beg for shadows, I prefer sunlight. I leave clouds for the sake of sunshine. I do not keep a relation, which is not worth for me. If I leave someone, I leave them forever. You may think I am arrogant but that is how I am. I may not be easy but once I love someone I give them my heart and soul.
I never forget people who are kind and good with me. I do except from people but those expectations are those of humans not of angels, they may hurt me but this give me the identification of my persons and betrayers. My current time may be bad but I hope for the best tomorrow.
I may be bad for other people but the people who love me and whom I love are special. I give them my all. I open myself for them and give them my trust because I know that they will be there when I am falling down. Some may break my trust but I will not change myself for those some people.
I will not lose myself and my loved ones for the sake of some bad people. Life may be hard but I hope that it will be better tomorrow. I know that life comes once and this life is mine. No one else is going to live it for me. I may be happy or sad because I have a heart. I may cry and smile because that is me.
I will not sit and cry for someone who left me because I am too precious to do so, that is how I am. I treasure my life. I love myself and my loved ones. I cherish myself and my loved ones, I pray for myself and my loved ones. That is me.
“How you treat others is exactly how they will treat you.”
A long time ago, a girl named Bhakti got married & went to live with her husband and mother-in-law. In a very short time, Bhakti found that she couldn’t get along with her mother-in-law at all. Their personalities were very different, and Bhakti was angered by many of her mother-in-law’s habits. In addition, she criticized Bhakti constantly.
Days passed, and weeks passed. Bhakti and her mother-in-law never stopped arguing and fighting. But what made the situation even worse was that, according to ancient Chinese tradition, Bhakti had to bow to her mother-in-law and obey her every wish. All the anger and unhappiness in the house was causing Bhakti’s poor husband great distress.
Finally, Bhakti could not stand her mother-in-law’s bad temper and dictatorship any longer, and she decided to do something about it! Bhakti went to see her father’s good friend, Mr. Mehta, who sold herbs. She told him the situation and asked if he would give her some poison so that she could solve the problem once and for all.
Mr. Mehta thought for awhile, and finally said, ‘Bhakti, I will help you solve your problem, but you must listen to me and obey what I tell you.’ Bhakti said, ‘Yes, Mr. Mehta, I will do whatever you tell me to do ‘Mr. Mehta went into the back room, and returned in a few minutes with a package of herbs. He told Bhakti, ‘You can’t use a quick-acting poison to get rid of your mother-in-law, because that would cause people to become suspicious Therefore, I have given you a number of herbs that will slowly build up poison in her body.
Every other day prepare some delicious meal and put a little of these herbs in her serving. Now, in order to make sure that nobody suspects you, when she dies, you must be very careful to act very friendly towards her. ‘Don’t argue with her, obey her every wish, and treat her like a queen.’ Bhakti was so happy. She thanked Mr. Mehta and hurried home to start her plot of murdering her mother-in-law.
Weeks went by, and months went by, and every other day, Bhakti served the specially treated food to her mother-in-law. She remembered what Mr. Mehta had said about avoiding suspicion, so she controlled her temper! , obeyed her mother-in-law, and treated her like her own mother.
After six months had passed, the whole household had changed.. Bhakti had practiced controlling her temper so much that she found that she almost never got mad or upset. She hadn’t had an argument with her mother-in-law in six months because she now seemed much kinder and easier to get along with.
The mother-in-law’s attitude toward Bhakti changed, and she began to love Bhakti like her own daughter. She kept telling friends and relatives that Bhakti was the best daughter-in-law one could ever find. Bhakti and her mother-in-law were now treating each other like a real mother and daughter. Bhakti’s husband was very happy to see what was happening.
One day, Bhakti came to see Mr. Mehta and asked for his help again She said, ‘Dear Mr. Mehta, please help me to keep the poison from killing my mother-in-law. She’s changed into such a nice woman, and I love her like my own mother. I do not want her to die because of the poison I gave her.’ Mr. Mehta smiled and nodded his head. ‘Bhakti, there’s nothing to worry about. I never gave you any poison. The herbs I gave you were vitamins to improve her health. The only poison was in your mind and your attitude toward her, but that has been all washed away by the love which you gave to her.’
HAVE YOU REALIZED that how you treat others is exactly how they will treat you?
Moral – We don’t expect the World to change. But if we changed ourselves, we will change the World.
A man died… When he realized it, he saw God coming closer with a suitcase in his hand. Dialog between God and Dead Man:
God: Alright son, it’s time to go Man: So soon? I had a lot of plans… God: I am sorry but, it’s time to go Man: What do you have in that suitcase? God: Your belongings Man: My belongings? You mean my things… Clothes… money… God: Those things were never yours, they belong to the Earth Man: Is it my memories? God: No. They belong to Time Man: Is it my talent? God: No. They belong to Circumstance
Man: Is it my friends and family? God: No son. They belong to the Path you travelled Man: Is it my wife and children? God: No. they belong to your Heart Man: Then it must be my body God: No No… It belongs to Dust Man: Then surely it must be my Soul! God: You are sadly mistaken son. Your Soul belongs to me.
Man with tears in his eyes and full of fear took the suitcase from the God’s hand and opened it… EMPTY!! With heartbroken and tears down his cheek he asks God… Man: I never owned anything? God: That’s Right. You never owned anything. Man: Then? What was mine? God: your MOMENTS. Every moment you lived was yours.
