Sometimes when we meet stranger along the way, we don’t really think about good about them. I mean lets face it, we don’t trust each other enough to even open a door to someone we don’t know or give something because we don’t really have a good intention with stranger. The whole “Don’t talk to strangers” was famous when we were kids and sometimes we still believe in that till now. But its not our fault that we are more concerned about our self, you might not even know that the strangers you are scared of, is also scared at you. We don’t know everyone for us to judge who they are and what they are capable of. Like in the story titled the cookie thief.
There was a woman at the airport who was waiting for her flight. She hunted for a book in the airport shops, bought a bag of cookies and found a place to drop.She put all her attention to her book and saw a man sitting beside her grabbed one of her cookies from the bag in between which she ignore to avoid making a scene. She ate the cookies while the thief diminished her stock. She was getting irritated and thought that if she wasn’t so nice she would have blacken his eye. With every cookie she took, he took one when only one was left and wondered what he would do. The man smile and took the last cookie and broke it in half. The woman snatched the cookie and took off because she was really pissed off. She went to her flight and headed to the gate refusing to look back. She boarded the plane and sat down too finish the book she started to read, but as she reached in her baggage, she was surprise that there was a bag of cookie in front of her eyes. And that embarrassed her for thinking she was the cookie thief all along, and the man she sat beside with was sharing his cookie to her.
Because of the bad things we are thinking to the people we don’t know, we tend to watch over them more than we look at ourself. Sometimes we just need to trust each other, no matter how ugly you look, or the clothes you were. We don’t need to judge anyone that quickly. It doesn’t mean we should introduce ourself or make friends with them right away. But lets just think positive to one another and trust each other because we are all living in the same world, dealing with problems and trying to live a good and healthy life.
