Don't we all cling on to things even though we can do nothing about it? It is hard for us to get up and move on. Recently, I was part of a conversation which is a shining example for moving on. The conversation was centered around one of the basic and important necessities of life. Food.
One late night, we ordered food from the nearby readily-available and quick-to-deliver options for food. In such a case, there aren't many options other than pizza. Ordering is the easy part if the group has reached a consensus. There are vegetarians in the group and non-vegetarians in the group. The food when delivered is clearly marked as vegetarian and non-vegetarian on the boxes.
As soon as the pizzas arrived, we dug our fingers into the boxes as soon as the boxes were segregated. When some of us had the first bite into the first warm slice of pizza, someone raised a concern. The boxes weren't marked correctly for vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. As a non-vegetarian, it hardly matters for me. At the same time, I was sitting across another vegetarian who was busy eating. I stopped and watched him curious to see how this is going to play out.
The person, who was sitting opposite me, continued to eat the pizza. When he saw me looking at him, he shrugged. "There isn't much I can do now. I might as well enjoy the pizza. I will try to be careful next time!". That was his response. To be frank, it is a far better response than spitting the food, running into the washroom...
