It’s been a while on this platform. Am back!
I was to go work somewhere late last year.. But the area of work was not familiar to me.
I followed the description which was given to me.
And I got to a place where I needed to take a bike to get to the final destination.
They have a shed in which they pick up their customer.
I got to the shed and told them where I was going as I was instructed to do.
The rider gave me an amount I felt was too much even though I’ve never been there and I don’t know how far the journey is.
I decided to call the descriptor to know what amount it is but the rider got angry because I was trying to verify and he started talking angrily that he wasn’t going to carry me, that I should look for somewhere else to take a bike.
I even tried to explain myself but he was angry and he insisted I should go look elsewhere that they weren’t going to carry me again.
And I was…. like seriously? 🙄
But I wasn’t ready to beg so I carry my strong and stubborn head and simply move to the main road to try if I would get another means.
Remember I don’t know the place…..
After trying for sometimes without success I was almost thinking their jazzz was working on me.
Then, I got a bike who I gave the description but unfortunately doesn’t know the place 😒
Nonetheless he agreed to carry me and follow through with the description given to me.
We gallantly rode pass the other rider in the shed who refused to give me ride at first.
We got lost a few number of times,but I was quick to ask those we met for the right direction and we got back on the right track.
And then we finally got to our destination 😀
And to my amazement the rider collected half of the money required by the former rider.
Now, the lesson is this:
- Learn to disagree respectfully and maturely without having to insult or give a demeaning remarks.
- Respect other people’s opinions even if it doesn’t make sense to you.
- Being turned down doesn’t mean their won’t be a positive outcome, you never know maybe you just deserve better.
- Don’t let someone’s negativity affect your own positivity, remember in life people will always try to pull you down but your own reaction determine the outcome.
- The journey of life may be rough and unclear, but when you follow through and stick with the right description which is THE WORD OF GOD you will reach your destination.
- when you get confused on this journey of life seek counsel from the right source ( SPIRITUAL LEADERS) and get back on the right track.
