Achieving happiness in life is linked with maintaining healthy relationships with our loved ones. In this short story i am sharing a Life Lesson from my 3 Years Old Daughter
Story – Life Lesson from my 3 Years Old Daughter
Yesterday morning while getting ready for office I was brushing my teeth. Without realizing my 3 years old daughter standing right behind me I moved a little backwards resulting my body hit her a little. Because my tooth brush was in my mouth so I couldn’t say sorry to her. As Hadia has recently learnt about using Thank-you and Sorry for different situations from her pre-school teacher, she was expecting me to say sorry without understanding the fact that while brushing her father can’t do so. She waited for me for a little while to apologize which I did not. So her little heart broke and she started crying.
I immediately finished my brushing and kissed her and said sorry to her. Very soon she became normal and forgot what has happened a while ago and we had a great breakfast together 🙂
Later I pondered that with friends, family and colleagues we often forget to say sorry for our mistakes which results in stiffen relationship causing brawls or complete break-up. While our loved ones give us time and expect our apologetic response, we forget to say sorry or sometimes even ignore the matter altogether considering it a minor one; whereas, it may be critically important for someone. Hence it is important for us to pay attention to this aspect and consider improving our Emotional Intelligence Skills (Managing ours’ as well as others’ emotions), enhance Empathic Skills and endeavor to develop trust with our loved ones for healthy relationships.
