last week, i had a heavy duty in my work and i felt exhausted, but when i ride on a bus, there's no place for me to sat, so i remain standing, there where men that was near on me and they're looking at me, i know they want me to replace their sit but hesitated... at first i was irritated because of the thoughts that" if they really want to gave the space, they should do this without thinking twice" however after one hour of standing i realized if i am exhausted about my work, how about them? i'm sure it triple the times they felt and experienced. sorry for being selfish.. promise, before i think bad to other people, i will think or view the positive side..

When standing on a bus it is great to look out of the window at the passing scenery. I imagine that there were many tired or exhausted passengers on the bus that you went on. In my favorite country, Samoa, on a full bus the local people would make room for others. I was amazed to see them sit on each others laps and on luggage in the gangway. It is lovely that you view life from the positive side.

yeah, i'm glad that i saw that positive view before i become blind in the truth... sometimes you may think that life is unfair to you but obviously you're the one who is unfair because you didn't see what you must see... thanks for the time and effort..

so the men were hesitating to give up their seats for you? I think you were not being selfish.. its a normal reaction on your part.Anyway, Im amazed how you tried to understand how they feel.I mean its so much better than being angry at something or someone.Its always nice to be positive.
