    [SIZE=-1][SIZE=-1]We vent our frustrations 99% at our loved ones.... And even though we know that we ought to "think twice and act wisely", it's often easier said than done. [/SIZE][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1][SIZE=-1][/SIZE][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1][SIZE=-1]worth reading.... A girl in love asked her boyfriend..
    Girl (G): Tell me... whom do you love most in this world?
    Boy (B): You, of course!
    (G): In your heart, what am I to you?
    (B): The boy thought for a moment and looked intently in her eyes and said, "You are my rib.

    [SIZE=-1][SIZE=-1]In the Bible, it was said that God saw that Adam was lonely, during his sleep; God took one of Adam's ribs and created Eve. Every man has been searching for his missing rib, only when you find the woman of your life; you'll no longer feel the lingering ache in your heart." [/SIZE][/SIZE]
    [SIZE=-1][SIZE=-1] ​

    After their wedding, the couple had a sweet and happy life for a while. However, the youthful couple began to drift apart due to the busy schedule of life and the never-ending worries of daily problems.... Their life became mundane.... All the challenges posed by the harsh realities of life began to gnaw away their dreams and love for each other... The couple bega! n to have more quarrels and each quarrel became more heated. One day, after the quarrel, the girl ran out of the house.... At the opposite side of the road, she shouted, "You don't love me!"

    The boy hated her childishness and out of impulse, retorted, "Maybe, it was a mistake for us to be together! You were never my missing rib!" Suddenly, she turned quiet and stood there for a long while.... He regretted what he said but words spoken are like water thrown away , you can never take it back. With tears, she went home to pack her things and was determined in breaking-up.

    Before she left the house, "If I'm really not your missing rib, please let me go... She continued, "It is less painful this way... let us go on our separate ways and search for our own partners..."

    Five years went by....
    He never remarried but he had tried to find out about her life indirectly... She had left the country and! back.... She had married a foreigner and divorced... He felt anguished that she never waited for him..

    In the dark and lonely night, he lit his cigarette and felt the lingering ache in his heart. He couldn't bring himself to admit that he was missing her.

    One day, they finally met.... At the airport, a place where there were many reunions and good-byes.... He was going away on a business trip. She was standing there alone, with just the security door separating them. She smiled at him gently.
    (B): How are you?
    (G): I'm fine. How about you... Have you found your missing rib?
    (B): No.
    (G): I'll be flying to New York in the next flight.
    (B): I'll be back in 2 weeks time. Give me a call when you are back...

    You know my number... Nothing has changed. With a smile, she turned around and waved good-bye..
    Good-bye.....

    One week later, he heard of her death. She ! had perished in New York. In the event that shocked the world..

    Midnight... Once again, he lit his cigarette... And like before, he felt the lingering ache in his heart.... He finally knew, she was the missing rib that he had carelessly broken....

    Sometimes, people say things out of moments of fury... Most often than not, the outcome could be disastrous and detrimental.... We vent our frustrations 99% at our loved ones.... And even though we know that we ought to "think twice and act wisely", it's often easier said than done.

    Things happen each day, many of which are beyond our control....

    Let us treasure every moment and everyone in our lives....

    Tomorrow may never come; give and accept what you have today.

    Hey Ayesha,
    Its such a wonderful piece, really loved to read that. But as the story says, its easier to say good things but doing is so much difficult. In this world our life has become so hectic but our expectations have become more from our loved ones, even a little nothing hurts us. Our sensibility has grown in a negative direction making us more fragile emotionally. Not talking about women only but the male world has also changed a lot. When I compare my father or some elderly person with today's youth, I just sighed to see that there is no bonding among today's youth in general, we have become very good individually but when it comes to team work, we fail. And marriage or any relation is about staying in a team, doing every thing for the team, and see this way we can do good to ourselves too because we are in the team too.
    But again, thinking good, saying good and doing good are different things.
    Wishing all the best to everybody.
    Take care and :wave

    Thank you Meeta & Abha,

    It is a forwarded story abha.

    Meeta I totally agree with ur statement which points that we fail when we try to work as a time. May be bacause we have become soo very selfish that dont feel like entertaining or supporting others..what say?

    regards
    Ayesha

    Hi! Ayesha,

    Jus read your article. It's so touching and so much true, everyone need to think twice or more before they say something harsh, for once out of mouth those words cannot be taken back.

    Dear Ayesha very touchy & true one. Often in our life we hurt those who are really close to us & sometime we loose them due to some misunderstanding. Good one.
