Do you care what people say about you?I don't and why should I. I am the best person who can think about myself.
But there are people who don't apply their mind and do what others think is good for them.
I was just going to a story related to the same which concludes we should not bother about others what they say but should do what we feel is good for us. Here is the story:
A couple bought a donkey and were going home with the donkey. On the way, a young boy commented, very stupid why neither of them rides on the donkey. On hearing this the husband asks the wife to sit on the donkey and husband walks behind them.
As they move an old man meets on the way and said, how foolish man he is. As he is the head of the family then why is he walking and letting his wife ride on the donkey. On hearing this husband sits on the donkey and wife starts walking behind them.
Now an old woman meets them as they move ahead and said how pity how can a husband let a woman walks behind him whereas the man rides on the donkey. He is not a gentleman. On hearing this husband too sits on the donkey.
Further, they met a young man on the way who said, poor donkey he has to bear the weight of two persons. On hearing this they both get down and husband carries the donkey on his shoulder.
Later, on a narrow bridge, the donkey was frightened and struggled. They lost their balance and fell into the river and drown and lose their lives.
This concludes that we should not do what others say but should listen to others and do what we think is good for us.
