Life is not always easy for anybody, even the rich also cry too in most cases. We all have expectations from the first moment we wake up in the morning until the moment we get to sleep. We fall short of our expectations because we are only humans.
Human beings are very complex in nature, we cry when we get hurt, we laugh when something amuses us, we are joyous when happiness visits us but one thing humans fall short of is the ability to read what is on every one else’s mind.
Now picture this, you had a bad day at work, you get home in a bad mood, immediately due to the fact that you don’t want your husband or kids to taste your bad mood, you decide to swallow it and keep it inside your mind. The next morning, you wake up, get ready for work, head out of your house then you bump into somebody who might mistakenly, let’s say who accidentally bumps into you and your mobile phone ends up falling down but not damaged. You then decide to take all your anger on that person even though this so called person apologizes to you. You then demonstrate your anger on that person using all kinds of verbal insults not knowing that the individual you are insulting may have also had the same bad as you did. Now imagine if this person you took your anger on is probably sick on life saving medications or has been diagnosed with early stage cancer, or maybe this person just lost his or her children just a day before this altercation. If only you knew, maybe you would realize that you are not the only one who is having a bad day.
You had a bad day at work; you get home. You don’t want your husband or kids to taste your lousy mood; you decide to keep it with you. The next morning, you wake to get ready for work, head out of the house, then you bump into somebody mistakenly, and your mobile phone ends up falling down but not damaged, you then decide to take all your anger on that person even though this person apologizes. What if this individual is probably sick on some life-saving medications or has diagnosed with early-stage cancer, or maybe this person recently lost a loved one. If only you knew, perhaps you would realize that you are not the only one who is having a bad day.
The moral is, the inability to read one’s mind or to determine what one has gone through is humans’ best curse; we don’t have this intellect to do so. Everybody you see walking on the street has issues they face; some choose to keep it inside and hope for the best, while some decide to take it out on others. We need to start thinking that life is not easy for anyone; we are all faced with daily challenges in life – from inside the house to our activities outside. So be careful who you confront, they might be in a worst situation than yours. Why don’t you at least take it easy and find out why they were either not paying attention or how their day went. You are not the only one having a bad day because we can’t read people’s minds to determine their state of consciousness; we must strive to be gentle with whoever we come up without there. Some people we may have an altercation with might be suicidal before you started the fight. Your problem is not the end of the world; at least acknowledge others. Don’t forget that your decision making amid a crisis can either save one’s day or break it. As always, it’s my opinion.
