The Advice


Quote 1 from an unknown source, “Someone has written very beautifully that I was extremely thirsty for water, but the water was full of poison. I can die drinking this water. But, I can also die if I do not drink this water. These are the only two problems that I could not solve in my entire life. Neither I could complete my sleep nor my dreams. Time said perhaps there should be a little more patience. Perhaps patience said there should be a little more time. Oh my life, I have many complaints about you. But, I am silent because you have given me many things you have not given to others”.

Quote 2 from an unknown source, “Someone asked me who is yours. I laughed and said, “if the time is right, then everybody is yours; otherwise, nobody is yours.”

Someone has sent me the following advice after looking at my recent picture. 

“A father, before he died, asked his son: “Your grandfather gave me this watch, and it is more than 200 years old. But before I give it to you, go to the watch shop on the first street, tell him I want to sell it, and see how much he offers you”.

The son went out to sell the watch. He returned home and told his father, “The watchmaker offered 5 dollars because it’s old”.

The father advised her son, “go to the coffee shop and try to sell the watch.”

The son returned from the coffee shop and told his father that the coffee maker offered $5 for the watch.

Then the father advised his son again, “Go to the museum and show that watch.”

The son returned from the museum and told his father, “They offered me a million dollars for this piece.”

The father said: “I wanted to let you know that the right place will pay the right value. So, don’t find yourself in the wrong place and get angry if you are not appreciated properly. Only the right people will appreciate you. Don’t go to a place where nobody sees your value. You must know that you are worthy.”

First, she failed to understand why this advice was sent to her. Eventually, the meaning came into her mind that she is wasting herself for the person who is not worthy of her or he is failed to understand the value just, similar to the above story.
