Avoid the Last Straw

Everyone is familiar with the expression the straw that broke the camel’s back. You must keep in mind that each negative action of yours adds weight to the burden which is carried by another in your relations. If you are oblivious to others concerns then eventually their back is broken and the relationship ends. On the other hand each unselfish act of yours lightens the load so to speak. Thus you should always strive to find ways of pleasing others. It should be your daily goal to create more positive memories and feelings than negative ones in all your relationships. You need to keep track of your own actions, but not theirs. If a harsh word spoken or some negative action by you leaves your conscience feeling guilty, surely it will add weight to the pile. Therefore when you make mistakes you need to own them, and apologize quickly. A willing apology demonstrates your genuine concern and hopefully takes back the last straw you inadvertently tossed on the pile.
