Was from lunch break was now walking back to the office, when I met this hardworking woman who was selling bananas.. Have been seeing her every day bringing the fruit ( banana) to the offices and selling them to my colleagues and some clients. But this day as she was walking towards the compound she saw some clients she knew. She was scared and feeling embarrassed going inside the compound, fearing what the clients inside there would say seeing her selling bananas. We commensed into conversation.
Her:( Faking a smile) Now this people gonna say that am only a banana seller. Me:( Looking at her keenly)Why do you say so? ( I asked her) Her: ( still smiling and saying nothing) ( This touched my heart, and I knew how she was feeling deep down) Me: You see what? Don't always bother what people are saying about you because it's only going to ruin your ability to do something greater. Don't ever feel ashamed of the kind of hustle you're doing, because if you stop doing it..Am very sure those talking about you won't even give you a single cent, even checking up on you.Those people can't even recommend you for any job. They can't do whatever you're doing because you're better off than them.. You're hardworking as compared to them they only know how to talk.( Smiling) Her:( smiles back) That's true. ( She got enough courage and was at ease now we all went inside the compound)
