Its not really easy to keep yourself motivated all the time. Everyone is busy with some or the other important work these days. Intolerance to other’s thoughts have been increased in past few years. People are not ready to accept their faults easily. Old age people were happy because ego and arrogance were not there. They had the power of tolerance and patience which are missing in us.
I was talking to my mother yesterday who told me not to get affected by the behaviour of immature people. She gave me an important mantra to keep my mind cool in adverse situations. She told me to smile and ignore stupid people.
From last few years I have been trying to learn to be calm and cool with stupid people. I can’t tolerate nonsense and stupid behaviour. It’s my weakness. But this world is full of stupid people who come into your environment and disturb you with their poor knowledge and teasing behaviour. I don’t want to get indulged but unfortunately sometimes they start arguing on an issue and drag you into a situation which could be easily avoided. My mother made me think over this problem. I have fought with her many times to give answer to those who deserve to be treated like this.
After spending 44 years on this planet, I came to know that intolerance and anger are the biggest enemies of correct understandings. We can’t compel others to be disciplined and lovable. If someone has decided not to learn good things, you can’t teach them. Its their problem and we must never try to preach them.
Tired and angry, Don’t give up, just move on. My mother says this quite often but I could not understand the true meaning before. Yesterday I was talking to someone who started arguing with me on an issue. After keeping the phone down I tried to forgive her by remembering my mother’s words.
I don’t know how much she got affected but I always get affected by such behaviour. I had spent nights scolding others for their incorrect behaviour. But the very next moment I decided to let go and move on, my life became peaceful. I am a different human being and its not possible to make others realize my importance. Whenever I try to help others, I get hurt at the end to see their selfishness. Its okay to help others but expecting them to be good with you is another foolishness.
Human beings treat others selfishly and expect from others to be cool and calm. People don’t remember your hundred good deeds but they remember your one bad word. Its pointless to be angry on their behaviour.
Give space to others and don’t try to change their style of thinking. We should learn the art to master our minds in any bad situation. Let others do what they want to do. Keeping anger in mind for them is like holding a burnt coal in our hand. These people can’t change their nature but you can ignore them to make your life easy and peaceful.
Learn the art of living with peace and patience. Old age people are the best examples who had spent meaningful life on earth and left their experiences for us. I will try to be more calm and cool in future, though it’s not easy. But everytime when I fall, I will get up and move on.
