Not so long ago, my parent who was nearly 60 got pissed off to me.
My parent who was known to have a bucket of patience suddenly burst into anger.
Well, I clearly understand where that mood came from.
One afternoon, I was asked to come upstairs to get my own food, but failed to do it out of busyness.
Of course, I got surprised when she scolded me.
So, I took some time off to tone down my emotion before I leave my work.
But not before long, the food was already at my place.
Both of my parents are already close enough to be a senior.
That is why,
It is no wonder that their level of patience suddenly became too little.
But, that doesn’t mean that they don’t love me enough.
Now that I am already a grown up woman, I have come to my senses that it is now my turn to understand them deeply with no reservation.
As much as possible, I try to avoid arguments every now and then…
Despite the fact that I was being right.
At some point in my life, I have come to realize that not all battles are worth fighting for.
It is not about being right, but rather about being kind.
You may have won in the argument, but you have lost the respect in them.
So rather than consuming all my energy to be well understood,
It is better to have an ear towards them 24/7.
You see, life is too short to entertain the ugly side of each person.
So, instead of feeding your mind with negative thoughts,
Why not focus on beautiful things that ever happened in your life?
I bet, that will be hard to count!
If ever there has been a misunderstanding between you and your family or someone who’s older than you, learn to listen towards them.
Sometimes, getting angry means that they care way too much to you.
Too much that it now hurts you.
But here’s what you need to remember.
Someday, you’ll also get old; you’ll get weak; and you’ll feel helpless.
Words are deadly.
Please do remember that!
So, let’s try to control our temper whenever possible.
‘Cause I strongly believe that…
Whatever hurtful words that comes out of your mouth cannot be taken back.
How about you? When was the last time that your level of patience was put into test?
And what are the strategies that you have done in order to deepen your level of patience and understanding?
