A broken windscreen or a broken heart?

On February 2019, which was several months ago,

On a Sunday, i was about to go cycling with my son. As i carry my son’s bicycle, in a rush manner, i accidentally broke my car’s windscreen.  Ooucchh!  My heart grieves a little as it was a 6 months old car.  After some background check, i found out that i need to spend certain amount of money to get it fixed.



Later i realized that this amount is my tuition fees for the following precious life lessons  :

1. Do not rush, in whatever you do.   

2. Everyone make mistakes. Which human being does not make mistakes? 

3. Do not be harsh with those who make mistakes

Since I was not angry with my own mistake, i shall not be angry with other people’s mistakes. Most mistakes are unintentional and everyone should be given a second or third chance to learn from their mistakes.  

4. It is better to break my windscreen than to break the heart of my loved ones.

I can spend some money to replace the broken windscreen although it will hurt my wallet, however, i will NEVER be able to fix a broken heart of a human soul which will be mentally traumatized forever. 

So, always be wise and discern the right thing to do or say.

I think this tuition fees is well spent after all.


To Err is human
