Peace of One’s Mind

“I had 5 boyfriends before. This may seem hard to believe, but yes I did. In the past, I was this shameless girl who had always been dating around. In a way, I was an attention whore. I longed for boys’ love, but I wouldn’t return the same kind of love to them. I selfishly expected everyone to treat me with caress and kindness. It wasn’t until one week ago had I realized how much effort my current boyfriend takes to see me. He doesn’t live near this place at all and has to take 2 hours of public transportation (metro) to come see me. We only hung out for about an hour then he had to go back. I not only depreciated our time together (by complaining, “why are you late for 15 minutes”) but wasn’t understanding toward the distance he has to travel and the time he had to take off his schedule.”

“What do you think is the factor that made you change all of a sudden?”

“Exactly a week ago, I took faith in Buddhism (from my boss). You mentioned that you are a Christian, but frankly speaking, we are the same. I believe the Gods in all different religions are referring to the same single, powerful, divine being. That being is just taking on different plots in different regions over the world. After letting Buddha into life, my spirit was cleansed; after becoming a follower of a God, I was able to meet spiritually clean people like you.”

“Thank you so much for your kind words, and you definitely know this already, but please remember that nobody in this world is obligated to be nice to you, so when someone is nice, you need to be appreciative of the deeds that person is doing and try your best to return the same type of kindness. During my time here, I will help you improve your English skills :D”
