Dayo and Rukayat attended a university in Kwara State to study engineering. They were classmates, and they both graduated after five years of hard work. Fate led them down different paths in life after graduation.
5 years later, Rukayat finally found work as a Secretary in a construction firm, earning 50,000 Naira per month.
Meanwhile, Dayo was unable to find work and ended up working as a taxi driver, earning at least 5,000 Naira per day and earning 100,000 Naira per month if he works only 20 days in a month.
One evening, Rukayat had finished work and was waiting for a taxi at the bus stop when Dayo stopped.
She jumped in when she noticed the taxi was heading her way, but she had no idea it was Dayo. She was engrossed in her phone the entire trip.
She arrived at her bus stop and, as she was about to pay, she looked at the driver and their eyes met, wow! They were both happy to see one another.
“Is this you?” they both asked themselves at the same time, as if they had planned it. Dayo insisted on keeping the money his former classmate gave him. He was glad to see his former classmate and, for old times sake, he left the money for her even though she insisted on paying.
They both left after exchanging glances.
Rukayat returned home that night, lost in thought. Not that Dayo looked bad, but Dayo driving a taxi? She couldn’t put her finger on it. She felt sorry for him. I felt bad for him. She would have paid him and begged him to keep the change if Dayo had let her.
she had no idea that Dayo had another Taxi running for him. He is a landowner and is planning on developing it soon. But she felt sorry for him because he was driving a taxi.
Dayo, on the other hand, felt sorry for himself. Before going to bed that night, he remembered Rukayat, how neatly she was dressed and how nice she smelled, “She must earn more than 300,000 Naira per month,” he reasoned to himself. He felt ashamed, like a failure, and that she was far ahead of him both financially and otherwise.
He had no idea that removing the transportation fare and feeding money from Rukayat’s monthly salary would take her at least three months to earn what he earns monthly.
Sadly, this could be some of our reality; you compare your progress and success to that of your friends, classmates, and relatives, despite knowing very little about them.
You believe yours is worse because you appear di#tier, you believe yours is worse because you are not dressed in corporate attire, and you believe yours is worse because The other person appears and acts nicer.
Maintain your focus and face your life. It is not a contest. Stop comparing things because you don’t have a complete picture. Everyone is running in his or her own lane.
