Fact of Life..

Today he played 'throwing tiny stones at each other' with his friends..
One friend accidently hit him on the eye, and he said it hurts soooo bad that he felt like fainting.. 

I asked if he cried???

He said 'No' and then he started to wonder...
He wondered, Why didn't he cry?? 

A few weeks ago when we were at a friend's house, he was playing with some friends about his age, and something happened I had no idea what, but Afeef cried soooo bad that I thought something really bad happened to him, like he fell and hit his head bad, or somebody hit him hard, anything, anything at all...
But after asking him over and over again, I found out that nothing actually happened to him, nobody hit him, and he was not hurt, but yet he cried so bad.. 
I've never seen him cry so bad for so long, and on that particular day, he did, and yet, for no reason at all!!!

And today, confused, he asked me this;

"Why did I cry soooo bad that day when nothing actually happened to me, and today someone hurt me soooo bad in the eye and I did not cry at all..??"

Hmmmmmmm... I knew the answer instantly heheh..
I told him,
"Itu lah namanye sakit hati... hehe... and sakit hati memang lebih sakit dari sakit yg lain-lain... "

His expression slowly changed and a triumph smile spread slowly over his face :)

He said excitedly that's the answer he's been looking for all along!!!!!
 He didn't know what it was that made him cry that day, what had hurt so bad...
because the thing that hurts was inside, in his HEART.. 

 I think today my son just learned another lesson and a fact of life..
Something can really hurt inside, and it is harder to heal...
Well my son, this is going to happen to you more and more as you go on...
That is Life, and Life's Like That...

ps: Maybe it's time to start teaching our children some inner martial arts heheh..
