There were two houses standing next to each other. In one of them resided a very unhappy family. The spouses yelled at each other, they fought and quarreled all the time. The other was a place of happiness and calm. During one of the fights a wife asked her husband:
“Did you ever hear them quarrel or yell over at that house? No! So, go there and see what they do to avoid it!”
The man said to his wife: “I am so sorry. I rushed to get the phone and bumped into the vase. It fell and got broken.”
The wife replied: “No, honey, it is my fault. I put it there on the way. That’s why you bumped into it.” They kissed, and that was over. Both got back to what they were doing. The man who watched them returned to his wife. She wanted to know what the secret of their happiness was.
What he said was fantastic: “I know it now. In their family they both are guilty and in our family both of us are always right!” That’s the secret of family happiness!
Food for thought.
The “trick” isn’t in not wanting to take responsibility, but rather in not claiming right. There are times you need to forfeit your right to win your peace: depends on which you cherish most.
This recipe is applicable, not only in the home, but also at work and in all relationships.
