Handle With Care!

Rating: 5.0
Make the other person feel important-and do it sincerely.
— Dale Carnegie

I’m Doctor Atkinson,
recently I had a tiff with my son;
actually my son got annoyed by his assistant
and wrote to me in his temper.

My reply was very simple:
maybe your assistant does not feel trusted;
maybe he is shocked as
though he is trying to change but you don’t;
and there may be other psychological reasons,
not the real ones,
so certainly they can be overcome
if only you care to look into it,
and solve it as we are humans—
not robots ready to act on instructions!

Further, can you throw away your wife, son,
your mother, and me?
We are also at times
a bit of a nuisance, reacting, angry,
and bothersome,
not always loving.
We are also humans;
you need to understand.
But you know we love you,
it is another matter,
we become possessive,
demanding too much of you.
Still a few sweet words can be so soothing;
each of us always keeps craving,
and we are all like delicate glassware
you need to HANDLE WITH CARE!
and love,
Beware!

you have your own problems
always lined up,
demanding an immediate solution,
but what I am saying is this: those
are just mutually exclusive:
that you can certainly do together.
This is an art—you need to learn fast!

We all are flowers of different colors,
and different smell;
you have your preferences no doubt,
but when you reflect, you will see:
we are all the same,
waiting to be cared and praised.
You can be all-embracing,
reflecting, and enjoying yourself
in everyone’s aspirations without fetter:
how does your preference matter!

This approach is so pregnant,
with possibilities you can’t even imagine;
you need to take a bit of risk and start
to trust us all from the bottom of your heart!

So it is all in your hands
how you deal with this or any situation;
for, you are responsible for everything.
Yet once again let me remind you:
HANDLE WITH CARE is a time-tested formula;
I think it’s nothing new!
