A car ahead was moving like a turtle and not giving me way inspire of my continuous honking! I was on brink of losing my cool when I noticed the small sticker on the car’s rear!
“Physically challenged; Please be patient.”
And that changed everything!!
I immediately went calm & slowed down!!
In fact, I got a little protective of the car & the driver!!!
I reached home a few minutes late, but it was ok!
And then it struck me.
Would I have been patient if there was no sticker?
Why do we need stickers to be patient with people!?
Will we be more patient & kind with others if people had labels pasted on their foreheads?
Labels like ——
“ Lost my job” ,
“Going through a bad divorce”,
“Suffering Emotional abuse “, “Lost a loved one”,
….and more like these!!
Everyone is fighting a battle we know nothing about.
The least we can do is to be patient ,kind & compassionate
Let us respect the Invisible Labels !
