This one comes after a long time. I blame it all on laziness and lack of time management. Getting sentimental on my relationship with this blog I force myself not to let it feel neglected any more. And I gave it a new look. Simultaneously as I flipped pages of a diary lying on the table, I chanced upon an old piece of paper that reads as follows:
A man asked his father-in-law, "Many people praised you for a successful marriage. Could you please share with me your secret?"
The father-in-law answered in a smile, "Never criticize your wife for her shortcomings and weaknesses or when she does something wrong.
Always bear in mind that because of her shortcomings and weaknesses, she could not find a better husband than you."
We all look forward to being loved and respected. Many people are afraid of losing face. Generally, when a person makes a mistake, he would look around to find a scapegoat to point finger at. This is the start of a war. We should always remember that when we point one finger at a person, the other four fingers are pointing at ourselves.
If we forgive the others, others will ignore our mistake too.
There is a saying that a perfect match can only be found between a blind wofe and a deaf husband, because the blind wife cannot see the faults of the husband and the deaf husband cannot hear the nagging of the wife. Many couples are blind and deaf at the courting stage and dream of perpetual perfect relationship. Unfortunateky, when the excitement of love wears off, they wake up and discover that marriage is not a bed of roses. The nightmare begins.
Note ends...and so does one of the glorious days when I feel largely blind.....
