When The Oppressed Become Rich
There are stories about poor people
who became rich after some time.
In the course of poverty,
they were neglected and uncared for.
People around looked down on them
and all the time they felt miserable.
But nobody knew what the future
held for them
and how time could change
the course of their destiny.
Because of their misery
and the unforgiving treatment they got
by people around,
they learned to strive the hardest
so they could no longer experience
that harsh and cruel life anymore.
And sure enough,
they became wealthy and rich
and lived a very comfortable life
after years and years
of determination and hard work.
The life they had before
was almost forgotten
as if it never happened.
But worst of all,
they became proud and arrogant.
At last, they said to themselves,
"I'll get even with those who mistreated us."
And so without hesitation,
they came back to those people
with vengeance taking over their hearts
for the rest of their lives.
At first thought,
it seemed right that you have to get back
to those people
and let them know
you're no longer the same person
they used to oppress or hurt,
that you have to show them
what you've become
and how far you've gone.
it's not right
and it never does any good.
You have to think about this:
All those years of neglect, oppression,
misery and all
made you who and what you are today.
They made you stronger
and more determined to live your dreams.
They made you grab every business opportunity,
working long hours in the day
and sleeping late at night.
You might not realized it,
but because of them,
you became rich.
So instead of vengeance in your heart,
instead of taking revenge,
show your gratitude to them
for all the great things
that have been happening
ever since the day
they hurt and caused you pain.
