Suicidal Coward

A very rich wealthy man was standing thoughtfully on a bridge. Despite all his riches, he could feel none of happiness but sorrow and emptiness in his heart. He intended to commit suicide by jumping into the raging water.

When he was about to do it, a filthy beggar approached him. “Sir, please give me some money to buy some food. I will pray for your health and long life.”

Hearing this, he took out the wallet from his pocket and gave all the money inside to the beggar. “Take all of this,” he said. “All of this? ” the beggar repeated. He could not believe his very luck.

“Yes, take it all. I am going to a place where I won’t need it anymore” said the man. He looked back at the river below. The beggar felt suspicious of his suicidal intentions . Looking at the money, and holding it for a while, he hurriedly returned it and said, “No thank you, I won’t take it. I may be a beggar but I am not a coward and I am not going to receive any money from a coward! You may take that money with you to the river sir!”

Hearing his response, the man was very shocked. The satisfaction and happiness of him giving his money to the beggar vanished instantly. Even to make the beggar receive his sincere soon-to-be-useless money, he was not able to.

At that moment, he suddenly realized what a terrible mistake he was about to commit. He realized that happiness comes from giving others happiness. He had found his life purpose to make his life worth living.
