Tame Your Mouth, Because You Don't Know What Hell One Has Been Through

If you don't want to get mushy, stop now! 

I warned you, because this could get your eyes soaking wet.


A doctor entered the hospital in a hurry after being called in for an urgent surgery. He answered the call asap, changed his clothes and went directly to the surgery block. He found the boy’s father pacing in the hall waiting for the doctor. On seeing him, the dad yelled: “Why did you take all this time to come? Don’t you know that my son’s life is in danger? Don’t you have any sense of responsibility?”

The doctor smiled and said: “I am sorry, I wasn't in the hospital and I came as fast as I could after receiving the call…And now, I wish you’d calm down so that I can do my work.”

“Calm down?! What if your son was in this room right now, would you calm down? If your own son dies now what will you do?” said the father angrily.

The doctor smiled again and replied: “I will say what Job said in the Holy Book “From dust we came and to dust we return, blessed be the name of God”. Doctors cannot prolong lives. Go and intercede for your son, we will do our best by God’s grace.”

“Giving advises when we’re not concerned is so easy” Murmured the father.

The surgery took some hours after which the doctor went out happy, “Thank goodness!, your son is saved!” And without waiting for the father’s reply he carried on his way running. “If you have any question, ask the nurse!!”

“Why is he so arrogant? He couldn't wait some minutes so that I can ask about my son’s state” Commented the father when seeing the nurse minutes after the doctor left.

The nurse answered, tears coming down her face: “His son died yesterday in a road accident, he was in the burial when we called him for your son’s surgery. And now that he saved your son’s life, he left running to finish his son’s burial.”

Sometimes we say things we regret afterward. Sometimes it make sense to think several times what we're going to say before we say it, especially if it's going to hurt someone...

I'm guilty of this, sometimes.

sometimes our reasons are ruled by our emotions, not because people are giving us pieces of advice that don't fit into the situation but because of the fact that it's human nature. that is why we have to remind ourselve to think twice, thrice or if opportunity presents, even a thousand times before we speak. kaya lang mahirap. mahirap! so sue me, i'm also guilty.
