Just Listen!

By Judith Maduhu • July 9, 2018

After long hours of waiting for my friend at the bus station, I got tired and was tempted to just leave and plan another meeting. As I was still deciding, there came a man selling culture shoes and started showing them off to me so as I could buy or something, I just smiled and said thank you. I don't know if it was the smile or what but the young-man stepped closer and stood beside me and started talking to me. "You know I didn't just end up like this, selling shoes, I had a life...had a family but one day life just turned up side down and all was gone just like that",he said. Those were his words, in short, his wife stole all his money, sold his car and house, it was really a hard time for him and he was psychologically tortured. A lot happened and then he decided to pick up the pieces of his life and try to make ends meet, that's when he started making culture shoes and selling them to earn a living. As I stood there listening to him pour out his heart and story of his life, I was still surprised how in the world can someone be so open to a total stranger like that and it dawned on me that some people get relieved that way. You see, a lot of times we meet people and most of them have burdens in their hearts, some of them don't even have a person to listen to them, so I've learned to be good to all people and always give them my time to listen to what they have to say. By doing this it will not only help that particular person but also the one listening since you get to learn something from them and see the other side of life. This will make the world a better place to live in for all of us.
