U is to Understand

My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Marriage from A to Z in 55 Words. U is to Understand Each Other in Marriage!

U is to Understand in Marriage

55 Fiction

She sat huddled in the corner, hugging her knees as the tears streamed down her face, quite quietly.

He looked up from the book he was reading every once in a while but made no attempt to console her.

He knew that today she didn’t need him to hold her but just let her be!

A Word to the Wise

Walk with me for a while, my friend—you in my shoes, I in yours—and then let us talk.
Richelle E. Goodrich

No one is perfect that is why understanding is so important.

  1. Understanding is important. I can’t, however, imagine sitting in someones presence and crying without wanting some response from them. Some comfort. Some acknowledgement that I was suffering.

  2. Hehe I just came from Naba’s blog where her protagonist left her husband because he did not let her be! Yes, in marriage, one must know when to just let the other person be and when to console and your partner requires a comforting hug. And this comes, I guess, after years of being and understanding with each other.

  3. I think this is a philosophy that can make life so much easier. When you grant your family and friends understanding, they become so much more comfortable with you. They can relax, be themselves with you because they know even when they err, they will not be judged. It’s a beautiful gift.

  4. Wondering what was troubling her that made her to cry so much. Wish there was another way of understanding he could have displayed; either by bringing her a cup of tea or a scented towel to wipe her face. Can’t get her teary face out of my mind, very well written, Shilpa.

  5. I don’t think a marriage (or any relationship) can thrive when there is no understanding. And you have to be willing to try to understand, even if you have no real world knowledge of what your partner is experiencing.
    Thanks for the post.

  6. Understanding each other is very important.. but this story tugged my heart just a little.. because when I see someone sad or crying – my first instinct is to hug them.
