Once upon a time a ship was caught in a violent storm. It wrecked and the waves cast its wrecks on the sands of the shore. Among them was a sailor who lay senseless on the beach. When he came to himself, he cursed the sea. He said, “The sea is a cheat indeed. It attracts men with its cool and calm waters. But once they are in its grips, it turns furious and destroys them.”

The sea heard the reproach of the sailor and felt pinched. But it didn’t want to trouble him anymore. So, it came to the sailor in the form of a beautiful damsel.

“Who are you, 0 lovely lady ?” asked the sailor.

“I am the sea and am indeed as lovely as you see me now. You are cursing me for the wreck. But it isn’t just.”

“What is just then ?” asked the sailor in surprise.

“That the wreck was caused by cruel winds that blew into gusts and gales over me and created stormy waves in my calm waters,” argued the sea. The sailor couldn’t but feel sorry.

Dont blame others, for your mistakes….
A man feared his wife wasn’t hearing as well as she used to and he thought she might need a hearing aid. Not quite sure how to approach her, he called the family Doctor to discuss the problem. The Doctor told him there is a simple informal test the husband could perform to give the Doctor a better idea about her hearing loss.Here’s what you do,’ said the Doctor, ‘stand about 40 feet away from her, and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears you. If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response.’

That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he was in the den. He says to himself, ‘I’m about 40 feet away, let’s see what happens.’Then in a normal tone he asks, ‘Honey, what’s for dinner?’ No response. So the husband moves to closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from his wife and repeats, ‘Honey,what’s for dinner?’ Still no response. Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his wife and asks, Honey, what’s for dinner?’ Again he gets no response so; He walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feetaway. ‘Honey, what’s for dinner?’ Again there is no response. So he walks right up behind her. ‘Honey, what’s for dinner?

”James, for the FIFTH time I’ve said, CHICKEN!’

Moral of the story:The problem may not be with the other one as we always think, could be very much within us..! SO don’t always blame others for the thing that you may lack.

I am not sure how we learn to blame others for our own fault. I watched as my little sunshine stubbed her toe on the chair I was sitting in. She immediately barked, “Ouch! My toe… this is your fault for having the chair there.” I tried to make her realize that the chair was not moving and that it was her that walked into the chair, there-fore she was at fault. But, she insisted it was the chair’s fault. I knew right then I was going to have to start working on making her aware of admitting to her own faults. That task has not been easy.
