Blame it on the rain

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 the 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.

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 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."

It's never good to blame our partner for the wrong things that happened , instead blame it on the rain, accept the outcome, and focus on the positive side. Talking it over will always help fixed the problem.

This is a great one MOMnificent. I like this post. My husband and myself agreed on one thing when we first got together. We don't argue or criticize each other in front of families or friends. It worked and until now, we never had a heated argument or worse than petty misunderstanding. We take care of everything before going to sleep.
