Last Friday evening I had to go through 20 minutes of verbal blah blah and haha haha . Yes I was the object of ridicule. I was angry but wore a mask of fake smile. I wanted to punch few faces and also considered using a GoW Lancer . But thank God I did not do that because I was either polite / a coward. Walked away. I hoped that my rage would go off after 10k of biking. It did not. I tried ranting to a few. It did not. Then in a moment a realization : “nobody is perfect that includes me”. Started looking at this in a different point of view. I had lessons to learn from this :
- If you don’t understand something, take your time and learn about it. Don’t utter STUPID words and advertise that you are a FOOL.
- Don’t make money as the object of living.
- If somebody does something and it looks stupid according to your life’s code, share your opinions. And try not to be a IDIOT claiming that what you are doing is the ideal way to go.
- Every right word that is not said and ever wrong one that is shouted is going to hurt somebody. As you sow so shall you reap.
- Just because I’m friendly doesn’t mean that I’m your friend. Trust once broken, hard to mend.
- Understand your relationship and choose your words accordingly. If you are just a work mate, then you CANNOT speak like my brother / father / friend. KNOW YOUR LIMITS.
Thanks to you : when you buy that dream house or go about buying nonsense expensive gadget or a new motorcycle, I will smile and _try_ to share the joy brought by those stupid things (stupid according to my life’s code) even though I don’t understand it.
Today’s prayer would be : God, help me to remember and use these lessons. And help me to be a better person.
Note : There were 4 -5 of you standing around and *having fun* . This is not for all. I appreciate a few who actually tried to bail me out of that ‘bully session’. Not expecting this but please don’t come and apologize. It is better the way it is (as of now )
