Do not underestimate the efforts of others


By: N. George

Worth Noting:

  • Words like why doesn’t he engage the brains? Just shoot, he is not running fast enough, the ball needs to be kicked with more force, and can’t he see the goal posts? This could make you wonder why the fans have not been selected as players since they seem to know much about the game especially how to score than the players in the field.
  • When an old man with a powerful vehicle like Mercedes Benz S class may be seen driving at 60 kilometres per hour is usually blamed by young turks who wonder why don’t he drive fast? Doesn’t he understand how fast can the car he has can travel? Unknown to you is that he is aware of all that you are wondering about only that he is caring not only for himself but also for other road users.
  • He wants to have better control of the situation that he is in. He knows well that he is driving own car which if he causes an accident due to over speeding, it will be him to pay for repair.

People who are not in love fail to understand how an intelligent man can suffer because of a very ordinary woman. This is like being surprised that anyone should be stricken with cholera because of a creature so insignificant as the common bacillus……………. Marcel Proust

To a young baby for instance a year old the mother is the source of food and security. She is also the teacher and caretaker. The world of the baby revolves around her.

You may try to pick the baby and he cries a lot until that time you will hand him over to the mother or if the mother leaves him to go and take a shower the baby may cry until she returns usually due to feeling insecure due to absence of his mum.

You may see him smile after breast feeding and wonder what is that greatness in drinking milk of a fellow human being forgetting that at that age breast milk forms a huge component of the baby’s diet.

It happens that we did the same at such extremely young age like a year old but we do not remember those memories once we grow up so it would not look like you underwent through the same process.

Sitting amongst football fans watching a match you can hear many suggestions about the match of what they are observing players doing some congratulatory messages others blame more so when the ball is near goal area or during penalties.

Words like why doesn’t he engage the brains? Just shoot, he is not running fast enough, the ball needs to be kicked with more force, and can’t he see the goal posts? This could make you wonder why the fans have not been selected as players since they seem to know much about the game especially how to scorer than the players in the field.

When an old man with a powerful vehicle like Mercedes-Benz S class may be seen driving at 60 kilometres per hour is usually blamed by young turks who wonder why doesn’t he drive fast? Doesn’t he understand how fast can the car he has can travel? Unknown to you is that he is aware of all that you are wondering about only that he is caring not only for himself but also for other road users.

He wants to have better control of the situation that he is in. He knows well that he is driving own car which is he caused an accident due to over speeding, it will be him to pay for repair.

He is careful with time management that is why he left one destination early enough in order to reach the other destination in good time. Probably he has witnessed several cases arising from over speeding, so he is aware of its effects.

You are a young adult girl aged around 20 years and your parents are always advising you not to trust everyman that you meet and who promise you lavish living rather you should do thorough audit of him, but you wonder whether your parents are not aware that you have your independent mind, and it is your life and not theirs.

Most likely they could be doubting your ability to escape traps of some cunning men whose aim is just to trick you, use and dump you. Since they appear friendly and generous you may mistake them as kind-hearted unknown to you is that their cool demeanour is a bait to trap you. Many are times when your parent would like to see you succeed think what could be triggering their minds to offer such kind of an advice to you.

Since they cannot live your life, the major role that they can play is to provide you with advice but your decisions and their consequences will be for you. Do not ignore them; it is not out of idleness or misunderstanding that they are talking.

Do not laugh at the traffic police who is at work, yet it is raining. He knows well the dangers that could be suffered if he is absent. He cannot choose to punish himself by remaining exposed to rain. He is working there in the rain because he cares. Much as you may follow the traffic rules in absence of a police there are others who are not willing to do so.

When you meet a drunkard who has taken several bottles of beer if he is driving keep distance does not trust his competence in such a state. If he is walking, and you see him stagger do not argue that you have seen him in the recent past, and he was able to walk steadily, bear in mind that he is intoxicated and is unable to control himself. Do not engage in verbal abuses with him arguing that he is a grown up hence you expect him to show maturity.

Do not enter into agreement with him while in such a state as he is not sober so incapable of making well-reasoned decisions.

If you look at the size of an ant and the amount of the soil particle it’s carrying per trip while making anthill do not underestimate that soil it is quite a burden for the ant. Should proportionate load be put on you could feel the burden and appreciate its hard work.
