'How were the people where you came from?'
'A terrible lot', the traveler responded. 'Mean, untrustworthy, detestable in all respects.'
'Ah,' said the woman, 'you will find them the same in the city ahead.'
Scarcely was the first traveler gone when another one stopped and also enquired about the people in the city before him. Again the old woman asked about the people in the place the traveler had left.
'They were fine people; honest, industrious, and generous to a fault. I was sorry to leave', declared the second traveler.
Responded the wise woman: 'So you will find them in he city ahead'."
Dear Atria, this is a little story from the book Chicken Soup for the Woman's Soul. I like this story as it teaches us a very simple true about our perception of life and how this perception changes everything. People are different, majority of them are good, kind and helpful, but there are some not very nice people wishing bad things for others and carrying only about themselves. If we think only about these bad people we will see the world as a sad and miserable place, but if we think good of people, good people will find us and the world will be a heaven. There are many wonderful people in this world, believe me my dear Atria - I hope you will find them on your path of life.
