Today a little story, we all have those days when things are not going well.
You are very unlucky that day or you accidentally do something that afterwards you should not have done. especially if you have the feeling that you will be punished or whined about it.
It is sometimes difficult to be honest about it right away. Honesty is the best policy.
So it’s easier to blame something or someone for it.
for example I sometimes get hungry in the evening and then eat the candy jar of the children. the next day when the children want a piece of candy they are no longer there and they ask why. I usually blame the Mumzels for eating the candy jar.
When they were younger they still believed me after it happened several times. When the kids got older they stopped believing my story and they found out the truth on their own .
Now my wife doesn’t allow me to touch their sweets and I have to buy my own sweets. If I had been honest, my children and wife would have said that I could still grab a sweet every now and then.
As long as I don’t eat it all at once.
Only because I was afraid of a wrong reaction I chose to blame the mumzels only the kids found out it wasn’t the mumzels. All I’ve accomplished is that they don’t believe me in that anymore. for some candies?
What shall i do next time?
Blame the Mumzels again, of course. (just kidding)
No matter how hard it is, you better be honest. the damage sometimes seems great at the time, but it only gets worse if you’re not honest.
