DP Daily Prompt: We Can Be Taught Post by Ranu

Public Library

Yes we can be taught a few things from others. I was always very shy in school.I did not make friends easily. I very seldom took the initiative of starting a conversation.This gave a wrong information to my classmates. They all thought I was very proud.

Once my classmate wanted to go to the public library with me. I was surprised. She never went to any library. I agreed. We went to the library.When we sat down with our books,she said, ‘ Chaman I want to tell you something’,I gave her a puzzled look. She continued,’Because you do not talk to anyone we all think you are a very conceited person,I even said on one occasion who does she think she is?’

I was shocked to hear this. I was thinking in my mind, ‘Why will they judge me like that?’ It is perhaps human nature to make their own conclusion without knowing a person.Then in London another classmate of mine remarked, ‘Sabeth ,you will never have enemies’,I asked him why? He said, ‘You hardly talk’. I replied, ‘You’ll be surprised’. I had to explain my experience in the university.

Some think I am quiet because I am proud. Others think I will never have enemies,I hardly speak. So from this it taught me two things,not everyone thinks I am vain. It also says people make up their mind without knowing someone.

  1. Dear Ranu,

    Thank you for this.

    It is indeed difficult to know other people well, and to discern accurately what makes them tick.

    All good wishes,

    robert

    • I was not talkative or tried to make friends.I left all my talkativeness at home,so people had wrong impression of me. You can never hit it right. My Mom once said about someone,no matter what she did she was not right.Frustrated she said,’I can’t do this or that,what can I do’? The reply,’You can’t do this or that either’. See what I mean?
      Best wishes to you.
      Ranu
