Please be Patient: Invisible Labels

This morning when I woke up, I received a very informative forward message that I  would want to share with my readers.

A car ahead was moving like a turtle and not giving me the way in spite 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” ,

“Fighting cancer”,

“Going through a bad divorce”,
“Suffering Emotional abuse “,
“Lost a loved one”,
“Feeling worthless”,
“Financially broken”

….and more like these!! Everyone is fighting a battle we know nothing about. The least we can do is to be patient & kind!

 Let us respect the Invisible Labels !!
