‘Invisible Labels’

Share This Post

08th July, 2022

A car ahead was moving at a snails pace 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 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 work 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 be patient and kind!

In a world where we can be anything, let’s just be kind.

Let us respect the invisible labels & stay blessed forever.
