Personal perception-a lessson to learn…


Different people have different perception. One man’s meat could be another man’s poison.

A couple bought a donkey from the market. On the way home, a boy commented, ‘Very stupid. Why neither of them ride on the donkey? ‘Upon hearing that, the husband let the wife ride on the donkey. He walked besides them. Later, an old man saw it and commented, ‘The husband is the head of family. How can the wife ride on the donkey while the husband is on foot?’ Hearing this, the wife quickly got down and let the husband ride on the donkey.Further on the way home, they met an old Lady. She commented, ‘How can the man ride on the donkey but let the wife walk. He is no gentleman.’  The husband thus quickly asked the wife to join him on the donkey. Then, they met a young man. He commented, ‘Poor donkey, how can you hold up the weight of two persons. They are cruel to you.’ Hearing that, the husband and wife immediately climbed down from the donkey and carried it on their shoulders.

It seems to be the only choice left. Later, on a narrow bridge, the donkey was frightened and struggled. They lost their balance and fell into the river. You can never have everyone praise you, nor will everyone condemn you. Never in the past, not at present, and never will be in the future.

Thus, the moral of the story is that:

Learn to think for your self and nevermind what others think. Do not be too bothered by others words if your own conscience is clear….

  1. True Story Buddy ….. What i really think now a days that .. you have to become inert in yourself .. you listen to others but yeah but a filter into your ear .. So that your thoughts Can flow easily with the flow of your mind .. Thinking about what other might say .. just let you loose yourself on the way 🙂 keep smiling 😀
