The Journey is short

The journey is short earliest publication in 2017 on a blog called Speaking Tree by Muthender Velishala

An elderly woman got on a bus and sat down. At the next stop, a strong, grumpy young woman climbed up and sat down sharply beside the old woman, hitting her with her numerous bags.

When she saw that the elderly woman remained silent, the young woman asked her why she had not complained when she hit her with her bags.

The elderly woman replied with a smile: “There is no need to be rude or discuss something so insignificant, as my trip next to you is so short because I am going to get off at the next stop."

This answer deserves to be written in gold letters: “There is no need to discuss something so insignificant because our journey together is too short."

Each of us must understand that our time in this world is so short, that darkening with struggles, useless arguments, jealousy, not forgiving others, discontent and an attitude of constant discovery is a ridiculous waste of time and energy.

Did someone break your heart? Stay calm.

The trip is too short.

Did someone betray you, intimidate, cheat, or humiliate you? Relax. Excuse. The trip is too short.

Did someone insult you without reason? Stay calm. Ignore it. The trip is too short.

Did a neighbour comment on the chat that you didn't like? Stay calm. Ignore him. Forgive that. The trip is too short.

Whatever the problem someone has brought us, remember that our journey together is too short.

No one knows the length of that trip. Nobody knows when it will arrive at its stop. Our trip together is too short.

We will appreciate friends and family.

Let us be respectful, kind and forgive, we will be filled with gratitude and joy, after all our trip together as the journey is truly short.

I think what you are saying is to take a positve response to situations as is possible. The old lady addressed the event in a positive way as opposed to the negative one the lady with the bags was expecting.
