Continued from previous conversation:
‘You can try to be more positive and appreciate others. It’s the way you look at the situation. You forget the good things he does. For example, you once told me he filled in the insurance claim form for you, coz that’s what he’s good at. He doesn’t read about the trip because he’s not good at that. He picks food and put food in your bowl. He knows your favourite part of chicken and put it in your plate. Actually he’s really good to you. You just don’t remember the good things. At the dinner in the restaurant, he said we should wait for you to order. He waits for you to make decisions.’
‘I said, “let’s order the fried rice.” He said, “let’s order the preserved meat rice instead. She likes that.’
‘It’s because he wants to eat that too! Not because of me.’
‘At Christmas dinner he put the wings in your bowl.’
‘Well.. that’s the least he can do..’
What does this show? It shows that we can choose to reject reality and project our own interpretation onto reality, which effectively dampens the way we see life! It shows that we can choose to be happy, if we choose to remember the good things that happen in our lives! It shows that happiness is a choice!
