Be Humble|فروتن باش


 

 

A lady worked at a meat distribution factory. One day, when she was finished with her work schedule, she went into the cold room that held the meat to inspect something as it was part of her everyday task.

But in a moment of misfortune, the door closed and she was locked inside with no help in sight.

Although she screamed and knocked with her might, her cries went unheard. Most of the workers had already gone, and outside the cold room, it was impossible to hear what was going on.

Five hours passed and any method she tried to keep her body warm wasn’t enough. Whilst she was at the verge of death, the security guard of the factory eventually opened the door.

She was miraculously saved from dying that day. When she later asked the security guard how he had come to open the door, which wasn’t his usual work routine,

he explained: “I’ve been working in this factory for 35 years, hundreds of workers come in and out every day, but you are one of the few who greet me in the morning

and say goodbye to me every night when leaving after work. Many treat me as if I’m invisible. That day as you reported for work like all other days, you greeted me in your simple manner ‘Hello’. But at that evening after working hours, I realized that I had not heard your ‘Bye, see you tomorrow.’ Hence why I decided to check around the factory.

I am glad you are safe and look forward to your ‘hi’ and ‘bye’ every day because they remind me that I am somebody.

Not hearing your farewell that day… I knew something had happened. That’s why I was searching for you in every possible place.”

-Be humble, love and respect those around you. Try to have an impact on people who cross your path every day, you never know what tomorrow will bring.

  34. This made me a little weepy, because it costs nothing to be kind to a person, yet so few people do it. Some people are kind to others only if it serves their own interests.
