Our Journey  Together is so Short

A young lady sat in a bus. At the next stop a loud and grumpy old lady came and sat next to her. She squeezed into the seat and bumped her with her numerous bags. 
The person sitting on the other side of the young lady got upset, asked her why she did not speak up and say something.
The young lady responded with a smile: 
“It is not necessary to be rude or argue over something so insignificant, the journey together is so short. Anyway, I get off at the next stop.”


This response deserves to be written in golden letters:
It is not necessary to argue over something so insignificant, our journey together is so short
If each one of us realised that our time here is so short so why darken it with: 

Quarrels and fights

Futile arguments,

Not forgiving others,

 Discontentment and a 

Fault finding attitude 

all are a waste of time and energy.
Did someone break your heart? *Be calm, the journey is so short.*
Did someone betray, bully, cheat or humiliate you? *Be calm, forgive, the journey is so short.*
Whatever troubles anyone brings us, let us remember that *our journey together is so short.*
No one knows the duration of this journey. No one knows when their stop will come. *Our journey together is so short.*
Let us cherish friends and family. Let us be respectful, kind and forgiving to each other. Let us be filled with gratitude and gladness. 
If I have ever hurt you, I ask for your forgiveness. If you have ever hurt me, you already have my forgiveness. 
After all, *Our Journey Together is so Short!*
