Sometimes the pace of life here is a bit overwhelming and could put stress on people. Teenagers are especially eager to get on with their lives. Several times I’ve been pushed aside by someone in a hurry although not many times (luckily). With the pace of life here, sometimes people forget that manners and concern for others are important too. Sure, maybe time is money. But even if you rush, sometimes it may take just as long. For instance, once I tried to drive out of a traffic jam by taking another path but because I wasn’t familiar with the roads, it ended up taking just as long as staying and waiting in the traffic jam and there was even a sense of panic when I wasn’t sure where I was headed. There are many places in the world where life goes a bit slower and people are more patient about waiting for things. Maybe we should learn from them and take life slower and learn to appreciate life as it is.
