A Sunday sunny afternoon, as I was travelling in a Belta model taxi, to town. I recall crystal clear, I and a fellow passenger confirming the dropping stage. The driver, so clear in his words stated he would drive to the central center of the town. However, not all said is done. H ended up dropping us all just at the entry to the town, that was approximately 1000 meters from the promised stopping point. Though disappointed and sad, I paid and walked away. A few steps away,another passenger got off the taxi, mad at the driver. She scolded the driver, calling him a liar. The driver had to respond in his vulgar and abusive words. The scene was gaining attraction. The lady tried to prove her point but the conversation had taken a different angle. She was getting teary, and I had to get her out of the site. Her heart was bitter, her eyes wet, her look was anxious.

I do not know, but i suppose we all have encountered such a situation. Could be in public, an event, family, or even a friend. You could be caught up in a disagreement, an exchange of words, that no take a new irrational angle. We mostly tend to respond to all insults with insults, or even worse, standing and facing the situation trying to justify ourselves. Justice is just but a personal entity. In the long run we end up being hurt emotionally, teary and heartbroken. The memories of the hurting words we got remain in us, creating a wound that is difficult to heal. It is life, and such occurrences are inevitable, so is change. But there could be another and better response; QUIT!! It is wise to quit, walk away and worry less. This, to many will look like giving in, and to men especially, it is perceived as a sign of cowardice. But to the better view of it, you end up not witnessing or rather giving time for insults. By so doing, you will walk away in peace.
