Here is a story I wish to share with all of you.
I will just call it …
The Story of Two Apples.
I have no idea whether you have read this before.
However, I hope you will still enjoy reading this.
I have read this story many times..
And I still like it so much.
A lovely little girl was holding two apples with both hands.
Her mum came in and softly asked her little daughter with a smile: my sweetie, could you give your mum one of your two apples?…
The girl looked up at her mum for some seconds, then she suddenly took a quick bite on one apple, and then quickly on the other.
The mum felt the smile on her face freeze. She tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.
Then the little girl handed one of her bitten apples to her mum,and said: mummy, here you are…This is the sweeter one.
No matter who you are, how experienced you are, and how knowledgeable you think you are, always delay judgement.
Give others the privilege to explain themselves.
What you see may not be the reality. Never conclude for others.
Moral of story in my own words.
We should not assume that we already know everything…
We should always be open minded and willing to listen to others…
We should be patient and not be quick to jump to wrong conclusions…
And we should think carefully before we end up taking the wrong actions…
Or we will miss golden opportunities which can improve our lives and bring joy to us.
