Here’s a small story that happened in Japan.
In order to renovate the house, someone in Japan breaks open the wall. Japanese houses normally have a hollow space between the wooden walls. When tearing down the walls, he found that there was a lizard stuck there, because a nail from outside hammered into one of it’s feet. He sees this, feels pity, and at the same time curious, as when he checked the nail, it was nailed 5 years ago when the house was first built.
How could the lizard survived in such position for 5 years without food without moving a single step – since it’s foot was nailed. It is impossible and mind boggling. So he stopped his work and observed the lizard, what it has been doing to survive. Suddenly, another lizard appears with food in its mouth. For the lizard that was stuck by nail, another lizard has been feeding it for past 5 years… It has been doing that untiringly for 5 long years, without giving up hope on its partner.
Imagine what a small creature can do and humans blessed with intelligence can’t. Please don’t abandon your loved ones. Never say you’re too busy when they really need you. You may have the entire world at your feet, but you might be the only one in their world. A moment of negligence might break the very heart which loved you against all odds.
Remember that it takes a moment to break but an entire lifetime to make.
