The Art of Human Relations.

CP and LeeF are good friends but lately both tend to be at loggerhead. I know both these two great ladies. They are intelligence, attractive and are very capable business entrepreneurs. Because of their high ego and self pride, they are sensitive to unnecessary issues and matters. Over reacting, they became arrogance and angry with each others. On confrontation over their telephone calls they spoke with hatreds, neither one refused to give way.

I had a recent conversation with CP who related this sad episode to me. Since both these charming ladies are my friends, i suggested a way out to CP who listened attentively to my wisely advices.

When two hard rocks are hitting towards each other, either one or both might break into pieces. In order to avoid such impact, one rock has to be converted into water which would cushion the force of the hitting rock. Meaning 'hard' and 'hard' is painful, whereas 'hard' and 'soft' is painless. Let LeeP be the hard rock, and i advised CP to be the softer person. If CP is prepared to soften herself while speaking with LeeP, she would turn to be the actual winner who eventually be able to control LeeP instead.

On the nite when CP met LeeP again, she let her friend spoke her mind. She didn't challenge or excused her previous wrongs, neither she raised her angry voice but spoke gently and kept asking the friend to forgive her mistakes. There were no arrogance, temper and shout heard in this meeting. They drank with joy and laughed through the heart. Before they departed, they both hugged like kids again.

While driving home after this gathering, CP was smiling to herself because she felt the pride of winning her friend back. Yes! She had given way as a loser at first but the actual winner was still herself who was wise and smart to understand the Art of Human Relationship. And for me..Yes I am equally happy for both of them because Happiness is to see others happier.

Specially for CP & LeeP -
