I remembered a story that I once read, about a tree in 4 different seasons. During winter, the tree will be covered with snow, appeared white, and cold. A few months later, in spring, the tree will started to look lively again, the leaves are perking with yellow and brown colours. Then, summer comes, flowers blooming around and floral scent filling the air, makes it looks very fresh and inviting. But then, 3 months later, when it is autumn, all the leaves and flowers slowly dropped to the ground, leaving the tree looking hollow and empty, preparing itself for winter again. Get the moral of the story..?
That’s how human beings are. We are just like the tree in 4 seasons. We have our good times, when we feel like smiling all day. We had our gloom moments, when even simple things pissed us off. We had our cloudy, windy, rainbow colour day..etc..u name it. IF we tend to judge ppl based on our first meeting with them during their ‘winter day’, we will think that they are a cold, arrogant person. Who knows , later, a few months in the future, ull be surprised at how sweet and serene they really are..
So..in short..if u happen to bumped into me, with my face looking like a lioness protecting its cub indicating a sign of ‘don’t-mess-with-me’…just think that it’s just not my spring or summer days. Or when it is ur first encounter with me, and I look like a sweet, demure princess from Uganda, please don’t think im all the time like that, ..( and then say that im some kind of ‘perempuan melayu terakhir’, only if u wish to call a woman who tripped over high heels and runs around with that label, by all means , please do..hahah ).Perhaps, at that moment, im just in my summer mood, u know, feeling girlie and stuffs. ..
Basically, what im trying to point out here is that, people are just people. We are not angels all the time, and also we are not devils 24/7. Sometimes we are kind and sweet, other times we are just not in the mood of being kind. Smtmes, we are happy, smtmes we are sad. Smtmes we look like the finest man on earth, and other times, we are just a slob. So..whenever we see anyone who looks their worst, or someone just snapped at us or treated us bad, just think that perhaps ..they’re not in their good season, they didnt really mean to do that to u. Say it to urself, so that we wont hold grudges towards other ppl, or see other ppl as bad, because we are just like them, and they are just like us. We have our own seasons, and we are only humans.
