Invisible Labels ..

Of late, people label me a lot..( yea the people who label me they themselves lack a clear identity.. that's the irony !)

Anyways, the label/s that I get is/are...

SHE

...is financially broken...

..is a woman who has lost her job.

...going through a bad "family" time.

...is emotionally broken

...feels worthless and depressed all the time.

...is not the legal heir.

....is after all a woman.

....can be threatened emotionally.

.....can be given false promises.

....can be made to walk out completely.

....does not look her age.

....blah blah blah..

Its a disgusting feeling of hatred I develop for them.  I wish just for one day they should live my life.. that's my prayer for them... One day they should yearn for getting loved...

Anyways, with these things spinning my head, I was going for a walk and I saw a car moving like a turtle and not giving the other guy in a car behind that slow car a chance to move ahead inspite of his honking!   He was on the brink of losing his patience and would have definitely been "judgmental about them" given the smirk he had on his face when he kinda noticed the small sticker on the car's rear which read -"Physically Challenged. Please Be Patient"

And that changed everything!! He immediately went calm and slowed down!! In fact he got a little protective of the car and the driver.

And then it dawned.  Oh God, they have a label too like me!!  The difference is... that label is visible and my label is invisible.

Would he have been patient if there was no sticker??

Why do we need stickers to be patient with people??

Will we be more patient and kind with others if people had labels pasted on their foreheads???

No answers..hmm..
