A car ahead was moving like a turtle and not giving me way inspite of my continuous honking!

I was on brink of losing my cool when I noticed the small sticker on the cars rear.

It reads…
“Physically challenged; Please be patient.”

And that changed everything!! I immediately went calm and slowed down!!

In fact I got a little protective of the car and the driver.

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 and kind with others if people had labels pasted on their foreheads?

I reached work a few minutes late, but it was ok!

Labels like:
~ Lost my job
~ Fighting cancer
~ Going through a bad divorce
~ Suffering Emotional abuse
~ Lost a loved one
~ Feeling worthless
~ Financially messed up
…..and more like these.

Everyone is fighting a battle we know nothing about.

The least we can do is be patient and kind.

We don’t have to put people through the pressures of explaining over times before we understand their pains and offer our little best.

As you go through each passing day always remember there’s an invisible label on everyone.

A simple virtue of patience may just be the respect you’re according that invisible label.

May your day be blessed 💕
