Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 27 years.
And for all these years, he wasn’t treated well. Not given decent clothes to weak, food to eat, books to read.
Eventually, he went on to become the president of South Africa and for the swearing in ceremony he invited the jailers as well. The same jailers who hadn’t treated him well.
When asked, why would you invite those who didn’t treat you well, he replied,
“If I didn’t invite them, I would still be in prison”
Such is our mind. It is the biggest prison of all. We can escape or be released from any physical prison, but it is the one in our head that is the hardest to.
And the one that we have to escape from.
