A rich kid :
“Oh man, this burger is so cold. Why doesn’t mom understand that I always like to have my food hot!”
A poor kid:
“God, please give me something to eat. Even if it is a week old. I just want something to eat”
An indifferent student:
“Why does this teacher keep taking classes every other day. Can’t she let us free for a day?”
A passionate student :
“I wish I had a teacher to teach me all this. I’m so interested in learning but there is no one around to teach me.”
A person who wants to end his life :
“This life is horrible. I am going to end my life”
A person who has met with an accident and is about to die:
“God, How I wish I had a chance to live my life, again”
I am not saying I always appreciate what I have at hand. Yes, I do complain, but not for trivial things. But I’m better than many who complain how they do not have even one shade of pink in their wardrobe among the other million dresses that they have. Though it is not my business, sometimes I get irked when people keep complaining about each and every little thing. I’ve controlled the urge, many a time, to turn and ask them if they thought they were perfectionists, but as I said earlier, it is none of my business and I’ve not right to ask them. But of course, I do have the right to write about it, here on my blog. (Ha!)
There is one thing I would like to tell all those who complain at the drop of a hat. Just remember, there are thousands out there who would love to live the life that you live and would willingly trade places with you at any cost. When we are busy focusing on what we don’t have, we are just hiding our vision to the numerous other things that are blessed with. Some obvious things that we fail to notice, some obvious things that others readily notice.
So next time before you start complaining about why this city is horrible or why you aren’t able to find the perfect shade of nail polish, just think if it is actually worth your time and if it exceeds the importance of the rest of the things that you have.
