One more for you to digest with
"A boy was born to a couple after eleven years of marriage. They were a loving couple and the boy was the apple of their eyes. When the boy was around two years old, one morning the husband saw a medicine bottle open.
He was late for work so he asked the wife to cap the bottle and keep it in the cupboard. The mother, preoccupied in the kitchen totally forgot the matter.
The boy playfully went to the medicine bottle and, fascinated with its color, drank it all. It happened to be a poisonous medicine meant for adults in small dosages.
When the child showed signs of poisoning the mother took him to the hospital, where he died. The mother was stunned. She was terrified how to face her husband. When the distraught father came to the hospital and saw the dead child, he looked at his wife and uttered just four words.
1. What were the four words ?
2. What is the implication of this story ?
Read on only after you have tried to come up with your own.
ANSWER : The husband just said "I Love You Darling" .
The husband's totally unexpected reaction is proactive behavior. He is indeed a genius in human relationships. The child is dead. He an never be brought back to life. There is no point in finding fault with the mother. She had also lost her only child. What she needed at that moment was consolation and sympathy from the husband. That is what he gave her.
If everyone can look at life with this kind of perspective, there would be much fewer problems in the world.
Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness, and fears AND you will find things are actually not so difficult as you think."
As much as getting wht you want, do 2 tink about others .. As much as you are suffering and in need for help, others do too ...
As much as you wan to put yourself in first place , so does others . Do wht you can help wht you can As dreams are yours and ONLY you to achieve.
Tink about it ... deep inside you .... Feel the inner you. Do u really need tht ? Or is it just YOU WANT THT .
There is always a difference in wanting n needing . As much as need is important , does wanting helps in making a difference in you life ?
Is yesh, den by all means . If not, there is no point having it anyway.
