Once upon a time, there was a couple who was married to each other. The husband is named ‘Airin’, and the wife is named ‘Nataliya.’ Airin has an electronic items’ business, and Nataliya is a homemaker. At the start of their marriage, they were happy with each other like any other couple, but later they both keep fighting and only have complaints and arguments to talk about. So, to give their marriage life worth a shot, they decided to go to a ‘marriage counselor or therapist.’
After hearing all of their complaints and bickering about each other, the marriage counselor concludes, Nataliya’s main issue with her husband is that he doesn’t have time for her, and sometimes, he acts as if she is invisible to him. On the other hand, Airin thinks that Nataliya has nothing to do with her life, and she has no idea how tough his job is, and he doesn’t have time to waste and has no spare time to waste with her.
The therapist asked the pair to switch their life for a week and see what they feel about each other after that. The couple agreed to it and swiped their lives with each other. In the course, Nataliya realized that the work is very stressful and has no spare time to waste. When she came back home late at night, she was so exhausted and sleepy that she could not understand what her husband is saying to her and directly went to their bedroom to sleep. On the other hand, Airing was also getting exhausted and facing body ache due to lengthy and heavy work he has to do as a homemaker and also got irritated & bored with lack of social life and the same everyday routine. Due to that, when Nataliya came home late, he wants to talk to her, but as she got so tired and without listening to anything of what he wanted to tell her, she went to their room, he felt humiliated and sad.
But even after everything, they went on with the promise of living each other’s lives for one week. And in between their commitment, they understood each other’s complaints. After one week, when they again meet with their counselor, they told him everything, apologized to each other, and explained how they genuinely understand each other’s problems and complaints and want to work on their marriage by coming to compromise and adjustment. After that, they always spend their Sunday which each other. Airin now respects her wife’s work and always tries his best to respond to her when she is talking to her. And Nataliya now doesn’t mind when he sometimes goes to their room after coming home directly.
Moral of the story: We should always respect and value each other’s work and recognize & appreciate their efforts. And this moral can be applied in all kinds of relations – romantic, friendship, blood relations, etc.
