Just A Little Mistake….
One night, just before the shopkeeper closed for the day, a dog came into the shop, having a bag in its mouth. The bag had a list of items to be bought and money so the shopkeeper took the money and kept the items in the bag.
Immediately, The dog picked up the bag of items and left. The shopkeeper was surprised and went behind the dog to see who the owner was.The dog waited at the bus stop, After sometime, a bus came and the dog got into the bus. As soon as the conductor came, it moved forward to show his neck belt which had money and the address as well. The conductor took the money and put the ticket in his neck belt again.
When it reached the destination, the dog went to the front and wagged his tail indicating that he wanted to get down, the moment the bus stopped, it got down. The shopkeeper was still following it. The dog knocked on the door of a house with its legs. Its owner came from inside and beat it with a stick.
The shocked shopkeeper asked him “why are you beating the dog?”, to which the owner replied, “he disturbed my sleep. It could have taken the keys with it.”
This is the truth of life. There is no end to the expectations people have from you. The moment you go wrong, they start pointing at our mistakes.
All the good done in the past are quickly forgotten. Any small mistake committed gets magnified. You can do 100 things for people but once you do a little mistake they forget all that you have done for them. They capitalize on that your little mistake to hold it against you whereas they themselves ain’t perfect. The owner of the dog had no idea of what his dog went through to get those stuffs yet instead of appreciation it got beating.
Most people have no idea of what you have gone through in life to make them happy or please them but at the end of it all, instead of them appreciating you or complement you they end up looking for faults and mistakes from you just to discredit you. This is the kind of society we live in…
Dare to be different. Don’t talk down or dress people down but talk people up and you will see them go the extra mile for you. God will help you.
Be appreciative and grateful for small or big things. It’s an opener for bigger things. God bless you.
I see a better and improved version of who you used to be.
Have a pleasant day and weekend.
