Simply let no one meddle in your life – and with your wellbeing and happiness!
A long time ago, I had a major operation at Royal Hospital in Oman. Perhaps it was the post operation tantrums – but I was crying profusely and uncontrollably! Then this nice Omani Lady Doctor came over to me and asked me what was the matter – and why I was crying after having a major operation? It was not safe nor good for you Ami (Uncle)!?
I told her it was already 5.30 pm and only half an hour left for visiting time and that morning at 10 a.m. I had this major operation. There was no one at my bedside – all alone! The Filipino Nurse was telling the Indian Nurse – Tell him in English! He is ‘fluent in English’ more! The Indian Nurse was urging me to ‘wake up and open your eyes Uncle’ in Arabic! After the effects of the operation’s anaesthesia!
The Nice Good Lady Doctor – who came later on to meet me again in another medical situation – Diabetic First Time Attack – told me these words – which will stick with me to my dying day to my grave – In Life First is – You Majid! – Second is – You Majid! Third is – You Majid! Only!
The Rest – Your Wife, Children, Family, Relatives and Friends etc. – They can form their own queue after this! Remember This Always! – she actually was crying with me! Incidentally, she was a Married Doctor – with some of you with ‘dirty minds’ – but she was a very caring and feeling doctor – on her rounds to visit me!
Like I always say in my columns and books – and even the recent new book – Speak The Truth Only! – www.createspace.com/5640529 – Family and Relatives – after the Offices Environments with Bosses and Colleagues Peers – are The Worst Places where people take you for granted – and for most trouble making mischief and problems making – even affecting one’s livelihood, commonality and happiness.
