Sometimes life can be very difficult and it is easier for you to think negatively. However, those who are positive and torn trough joy in life, will understand the story. The true way we shall look at life and all its wonders. Read the story below.
This story is about two men, who were seriously ill. They were in the same hospital room. The man who was next to the room’s window was allowed to sit up in the bad one hour a day in order to drain the fluids from his lungs.The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.
The men become very close to each other, and they talked for hours. They spoke about their families, homes, their lives in the military and where they had travelled.
And every day, the man sitting away from the window longed for the hour when his roommate could sit up and would pass the time by describing the details of the world outside their room.
There were children playing, animals peacefully roaming and happy families playing in the water.
Sadly, after months of this, the day arrived when the man closest to the window died in his sleep.The other man was very sad and asked if he could take the bed by the window. The nurses were so happy to make the switch.
Slowly and painfully, the man pulled himself in order to take his first good look at the real world,outside the hospital room.He was shocked by the view. In fact, the window faced a blank wall.
The man was very upsetand called for the nurse.He explained the situation.
The man asked the nurse: “Why would he lie to me?”
After thinking for a moment, the nurse responded:“Maybe he just wanted to encourage you.”
This must be a lesson that we have to learn. We can do tremendous good for those who we love only by looking on the bright side. Despite our own situation, if we find positive ways of looking at the world, we can bring so much happiness and joy to those who are around us.
