I did not tell my family as they were sleeping. I was literally undisturbed. Thanks to the Optimist Club Creed,
my focus was literally on the solution part. I had 3 choices.
a) To ignore him
b) To write a letter to him that I want to bury the differences
c) Walk into his house to tell that I am not angry at him.
It turned out that yesterday was his wedding anniversary. When I called him, he was taking bath. I wished his wife my message - part (b) and their anniversary wishes. Evening I sent out him a letter.
Dear friend,It’s a coincidence I called you on your wedding anniversary. Belated wedding anniversary wishes to you and your wife.Friend, I am not going to talk anything about what happened yesterday. I am under the influence of certain principles which I am practicing in my life. I have attached the same with this letter. That’s one of the reasons I did not react to yesterday’s incident. I am only responding to you.I called your home this morning to tell that I hold no negative grudges against you and that we can resolve this if we speak out. I thought that would lift your day’s spirit – being a first day of the week.Our kids play together – so, they will certainly learn from what the elders do.I have nothing much to say. Lets bury the differences. Lets revive our good old relationship.Invite me for a coffee this weekend, we will have a friendly chat.
