The thumb said, I am superior because nothing can be lifted without me.
The forefinger said that I am used to point at things and it is not possible to give directions without me.
But, the middle finger argued saying that I am the tallest and the biggest one.
And the ring finger said that it is the most superior one as it is decorated with precious jewels
(Though contrary to the fact that today people are wearing rings in almost every finger!!!)
Thus came the turn for the little finger.
It thought.... It thought... And it continued thinking...
To find out why it is superior to others.
It could not come up with an answer....
By that time, the other fingers started teasing it badly...
With tears and feeling pity towards itself, the little finger rushed to God...
It prayed, "Hey God, you know everything. So, please tell me why you created me because I am good for nothing at all".
God felt bad and asked the little finger to think about its strengths or some unique feature that it possess.
The little finger thought about it day and night.
But it could not find any.
With puffy eyes, it again went to God.
It bowed in front of Him and said that it could not come out with any reason behind its creation.
God let out a huge laughter.
He then said to the little finger that you will be the only finger which will be closer to Me (i.e. God) when prayers are offered.
Hence, you are very precious that way.
You are loved by Me.
The little finger smiled and stopped worrying.
It is the perception that matters.
If you yourself end up thinking that you are useless... Good for nothing... A zero...
Or whatever crap it may be for that matter...
What value and respect others would give to you??
Its very important to feel secure and comfortable with oneself.
Everyone is unique.
All has strengths and weakness.
As a human being we have to overcome our weakness and build our strengths.
It is imperative to stand united.
We need to complement each other instead of picking fights and faults.
We have to learn from mistakes...
Not essentially from ours.
Its always good to learn from other people's mistakes as well!!!
For that we need to observe and be with people.
Life is too short to worry and for unnecessary ego.
Don't worry about what others would think about you.
be good and life is all about being happy....
Because such happiness is contagious!!!
