I still remember the day when I had a huge fight with my mother. I shouted at her and went out with my friends.
When I came back, I hesitated to face my mother. So, I went to my room and started watching TV.
My Dad, who was unaware of the situation sensed tension at home. After my explanation to what had happened, he took me for a drive. What he taught me that day had a great impact on me.
He said, “You know, I sometimes don’t like what your Mom says or what she does but have you seen me shouting at her or fighting with her?
‘I said, ‘No.’
He continued, ‘If you or me fights with your Mom, then we have an option to go out, hangout with our friends or colleagues and chill out and come back whenever we want. But have you ever thought of your Mom after you shout at her? She will sit there and think for the whole day why you shouted at her and she will not have food for the whole day.
So think before you shout at her or fight with her, you have a whole world outside waiting to hang out with you but for her you, and I are her world and when any one of us shout at her, then her whole world gets wrecked.
For you it’s just a matter of a few seconds of anger so if you can suppress it for some time, you can make her world a happy one.”
After that day, I refrain from any sort of unwanted situation that escalates tension between me and my mother.
The day I got married, she was my best friend. My bond with my mother became strong, and the advices she gave me for a happy married life helps me till date. She taught me the secret of happy married life, Unwanted21 Days!
