Worth reading ! Motivational story

The story may worth to read but after we read it, we usually don't and won’t practice is because humankind's nature is always , egoistic , unforgiven, selfishness, and fears.

A boy was born to a couple after eleven years of marriage.
They were a loving couple and the boy was the gem of their eyes.

When the boy was around two years old, one morning the husband saw a medicine bottle open. He was late for office so he asked his wife to cap the bottle and keep it in the cupboard. His wife, preoccupied in the kitchen totally forgot the matter. The boy saw the bottle and playfully went to the bottle fascinated by
its color and drank it all.

It happened to be a poisonous medicine meant for adults in small dosages. When the child collapsed the mother hurried him to the hospital. He died. The mother was stunned. She was terrified how she was going 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.


QUESTIONS :
1. What were the 4 words ?
2. What is the implication of this story?



Scroll down to read....


ANSWER : The husband just said "I am with you".

The husband's totally unexpected reaction is a proactive behavior. The child is dead. He can never be brought back to life. There is no point in finding fault with the mother. Besides, if only he had taken time to keep the bottle away, this would not have happened.

No one is to be blamed. 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.

"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiven, selfishness, and fears. And you will find things are actually not as difficult as you think.


MORAL OF THE STORY

This story is really worth reading. Sometimes we spend time in asking
who is responsible or whom to blame, whether in a relationship, in a
job or with the people we know love.

By this way we miss out some warmth in human relationship.
