The Old Man Lived In The Village
An old man lived in the village. He was one of the most unfortunate people in the world.
The whole village was tired of him; he was always gloomy, he constantly complained, and he was always in a bad mood.
The longer he lived, the more bile he was becoming and the more poisonous his words.
People avoided him because his misfortune became contagious.
It was even unnatural and insulting to be happy next to him.
He created a feeling of unhappiness in others.
But one day, when he turned eighty years old, an incredible thing happened. Instantly, everyone started hearing the rumor:
“An Old Man is happy today; he doesn’t complain about anything, he smiles, and even his face is freshened up.”
The whole village gathered together. The old man was asked:
Villager: What happened to you?
“Nothing special. For eighty years, I’ve been chasing happiness, and it’s been useless.
And then I decided to live without happiness and just enjoy life.
That’s why I’m happy now.”
Moral of the story: Don’t chase happiness. Enjoy your life.
