She Pushed Me Away, And Later Said ‘Sorry Sir’


I read this from and I thought it wise to share it with you

“I went to the banking hall few months ago. As I was about to enter, a lady ran ahead of me and pushed me away, so she could quickly join the long queue before me.

I did not say anything. She thought l would come behind her, but I was actually not there to withdraw some cash, I had come to deposit. So I walked to the deposit machine and I was the only one there.

When I finished depositing and I was about to leave the hall, the lady came from the queue and apologized for pushing me away. With a regretting smile on her face, she said ‘I am sorry please for pushing you away, I thought you were coming to this queue. I just smiled and assured her not to worry”


1. Who are you “pushing away and trying to outrun in the race for destiny, relationship, business, ministry, career, etc? Are you sure that you’re going to the same ‘queue’ (destination)? Your path may seem the same, but your destinations are different! The journey of life is a process, it is not about being the first, it is about developing yourself to be the best version of yourself.

2. How many people did you say ‘sorry to’ after you mistakenly pushed them aside, before you realized that, that person was not actually going to the same queue as you?

3. There are some of you who are pushing people away by slandering them, hindering their progress, blocking their promotion, spoiling their good names through lies and rumours, all in a bid to ‘get there’ before them.

I challenge you today, to take it easy. You might not be going to the same destination. It might surprise you later that, with all your pushing, they may still leave you on the ‘queue’ of destiny & become successful before you. Maybe you feel that people in your office, ministry, business, etc are pushing you away so that they can get ahead of you.

The race of life is not a competition and it very unwise to compare yourself to others. The only person to compare yourself to is yourself.
