You Are Not As Important As You May Think‏

Some people seem to be stuck on constant “worry mode”.

Always worrying about this, that or the other.

And to be honest, I have been there myself.

No matter the day of the week, you are worried about something, what people are thinking or might be saying about you.

So today, this is for all you worriers. I have a little story for you.

It’s about The Gnat and The Bull

And it goes a little something like this:

A gnat flew over the meadow with much buzzing for so small a creature and settled on the horns of a Bull.  After he had rested a short time, he made ready to fly away.  
But before he left he begged the Bull’s pardon for having used his horn for a resting place.
“You must be very glad to have me go now,” he said.  
“It’s all the same to me,” replied the Bull.  “I did not even know you were there”.

The story demonstrates that we are often of greater importance in our own eyes than in the eyes of others.

The reality is people worry more about a boil on their arse, than they do about you, or what you might have said or done.

And I encourage you to do the same.

Focus on yourself, keep your beak in your own business, and forget about what other people think,

Life is just too short. It’s a BIG waste of time and energy.

Get this, even people who were asked on their deathbed about their biggest regrets said: “they wished they hadn’t worried about what other people thought”.

Something to think about.
