My self and Sita were teaching in private school.Sita got married and her in -laws had joint #business.There were around ten people in joint family. Initially things were right with Sita. She was reasonably happy with the #treatment she was getting at her in laws place.
As luck would have it Sita’s in-laws family #business started declining. Sita had to face lot of problems from in laws family.Whatever help Sita’s Parents will give in terms of cash and kind, Sita’s in laws were not happy.Sita was finding It extremely difficult to face that odd situation.
I told Sita please accept the realities.If you realize it soon it’s the best. It’s rare to find people who will help you out of a critical situation rather you will find people who gossip and laugh at your situation and some will feel pity.Therefore be bold my dear friend Sita and face the situation. Sita continued her dialogue with God in form of morning prayer. This regular activity gave her strength.
God helped Sita in difficult situation.She got a Government school teaching job at higher post than previous one.Her pay packet was much higher than previous one. Sita was happy by this positive change in her life..After one year she was blessed with daughter.With little child in house ,Sita’s in laws family was also very happy. Sita was thankful to me as I advised her not to expect any help from anyone .God helps those who help themselves.Sita became indifferent and concentrated on her work of teaching. Soon she became popular among her students.That fame gave Sita so much courage and peaceful mind that Sita became a different person altogether.
Moral of story- Instead of feeling depressed and expecting help from outside people, isn’t it better one just try to take ones responsibility and not hope for any ones help and have solutions of ones problems with own hard work and courage.
