It is silly when your partner came to you asking you why were you turning a "sour face" ,you were mum. So you were thinking,"how could you not read through my "sour face" that something you did agitated me"
You expect he or she to have known you cos she or he always claims that both of you 心有灵犀一点通( many years together already ma,so you should have he or she well read),so it is funny that how come in certain instances this uncanny trait of his or her 心有灵犀一点通 is not working ?
So you've always lectured and telling your children that,"child, nobody is going to live your life for you in the future, so you will have to make good of your life now" So the message is delivered but when things or actions coming from your children do not seem to be "so right" so you chastise them and they act nonchalantly towards you, you get hurt.
At certain points, you thought "okay,I give in,just to make everybody happy" then bad things happened,then you told yourself, "okay,I should stop now before things got worse then you were accused of something else that got you into turning the "sour face"
I remember once a drug addict (who used to be my childhood buddy,too bad he died of drug overdose many years ago) told me this and now I realized how right he was, so he said," A lot of bad things in life will always begin with all the good" for an example," You take your first puff,you crack your first coke,you screw the first time, " they will always give you "heavenly sensation" but if you linger on or jut like how you begin with a first drink and enjoy to the last and then disaster awaits.
Children alike,if you give them too much of the good,if you molly coddle too much, if you pamper them beyond the norm, the end result can be heart wrenching.......
P/S : Sometimes,all I need is the air that I breathe and to love you
