Subject: Human Relationship

Sometimes we spend time asking who is responsible or who to

blame, whether in a relationship, in a job or with the people

we know. We miss out some warmth in human relationship to

give each other support. Treasure what you have. Just a

little story for you :

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.

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 can 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. To be happy

with a man you must understand him a lot and love him a

little. To be happy with a woman you must understand her a

lot and love her with all your heart. "A journey of a

thousand miles, begins with but with a single step." Take off

all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness, and

fears AND you will find things are actually not so difficult

as you think."
