Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Complaints or Gratitude?

--by Blissforgive, posted Feb 20, 2020
I wanted to share something which changed my life today. While returning home from my office, I saw a man with no legs at all. He was able to move very little with the pressing of his hands. I parked my vehicle and gave him some money.

I wondered how he did his basic things such as even using the restroom. After that, I went to a park and sat thinking. How can I complain about my life? I decided that from now onwards, I will be thankful for everything in my life. I will be happy with whatever God showers on me. I will happily do any job. We all should be happy about the blessings in our life such as home, food, water etc. This was a provoking thought for me. But, not many may witness and learn from this. I think differently now and it serves me a lot.

I pray for all those who are struggling in this way without food, water or home. Dear friends, stay blessed and importantly forget about society labels and ego. Continue to observe around and learn. I will not regret not having a car or a mansion. At least I have the basic needs which I am happy about. I feel more humble and I will not compare or complaint about my life anymore. This was my learning experience.

I was complaining that i had no shoes then i saw a man who had no feet. This proverb says what you said in brief.

michelelpurce wrote: like that old saying "i cried because i had no shoes until i met a man with no feet" this is so true. we sometimes take things for granted that we have until we see someone with so much less than we. :)
