Long time back, a hilarious advertisement used to come on TV. In a crowded townbus in a metro, one passenger pushes the man next to him … you know… those elbow pushes!!
Angry, the other man yells.. “ Hey, why did you push me ?”
The first one says with a naughty giggle, “ Okay, I admit.. …, I gave you a push, but why did you take it ?? ”
Joke apart, this captures some very insightful ways of looking at others in your life !! Ordinarily, all of us tend to attach a lot of importance to what others say about us, what others think about us, how others feel about us etc. etc. Well, it is but natural. But to what extent and in what context others’ opinion should matter should always be upto us, not others.
