During a prank, a student stuck a paper on his classmate’s back that said “I’m stupid”; he asked the rest of the class not to tell the boy.
Thus the students began laughing throughout the day… Shortly afterwards, math class started and their professor wrote a difficult question on the board.
No one was able to answer it except the boy with the sticker. Amid the slight laughs, for he didn’t know why, he walked towards the board and he solved it, the teacher asked the class to clap for him and remove the paper on his back.
He told him “It seems that you don’t know about the paper on your back that one of your classmates put and the rest of them kept it a secret.”
Then the teacher faced towards the rest of the class and said “Before I give you a punishment, I will tell you 2 things: Firstly, throughout your life, people will put labels on your back with many bad things written on it to stop your progress.
If he had known about the paper, he would not have gotten up to answer the question.
All you have to do in life is ignore the labels people give you and use every chance you have to progress, learn and improve yourself.”
“The 2nd thing is that it’s clear that he does not have any loyal friends among you all to tell him about removing the paper. It does not matter how many friends you have, it is the Loyalty between you and your friends that matter.”
If you don’t have friends who can defend you behind your back, who can watch over you, protect you and who genuinely care about you, you are better off alone.
To the person placing the label, that word you said against the other person to one person may cause a lifetime damage to the person, Don’t place tags on people that will destroy someone when it will not build you.
Think about it!!
