Our journey so short

in #story4 years ago

A young lady sat in a bus. At the next stop an old lady came and sat by her. She squeezed into the seat and bumped her with her numerous bags.

The person sitting on the other side of the young lady got upset, asked her why she did not speak up and say something.

The young lady responded with a smile:

"It is not necessary to argue over something so insignificant, the journey together is so short. I get off at the next stop."

If each one of us realized that our time here is so short; that to darken it with quarrels, arguments, not forgiving others and a fault finding attitude 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 troubles anyone brings us, let us remember that our journey together is so short.

No one knows the duration of this journey. No one knows when their stop will come.

Let us cherish friends and family.
