 3- A Short Story About Compliment

There was a skinny girl standing on the beach, and everyone was looking at her sarcastically because of her noticeable thinness, but she did not care about people's looks and tried to enjoy the beauty of the sea.
While the girl was relaxing on the sea, her friend came and said to her, "You don't have a paunch, and this is a very beautiful thing." The skinny girl felt joy because of this honest compliment for her appearance.

Dear Friend,
One of the best ways to facilitate your relationships with others is to be proficient in the art of praise. When you talk to someone else, always start talking about a topic that the other party likes, and throughout the conversation use positive words and phrases, for example, the phrase you did not say the truth is better than the phrase you are a liar. The phrase you're out of luck better than the phrase you're a failure. And so on...

A wise man said,
A talkative person is someone who talks to you about others.
A humorless is the one who constantly tells you about himself.
A polite speaker is someone who talks to you about yourself, and talks to you about what you want to hear; not what he wanted to say.

I did not hear the conversation that took place between them, but the conversation ended when Mary opened the cake box and gave half of it to the poor woman. Many students passed by the woman, but only Mary gave her food, Mary refused to win the competition at the expense of this poor woman's hunger and preferred to feed her whatever the result."

The mother was surprised and asked him about the reason for crying. Joseph said, I am crying because I am embarrassed to tell you this. The mother was very sad and asked her son with tears in her eyes "Do I not deserve to be the ideal mother?" Joseph looked at his mother's tears but did not say a word.

You don’t even see the burns on my back, and you don’t know how much I’ve suffered from these burns for so many years." Joseph apologized to his mother and asked her about the cause of these burns.

There were two candles in the house, so I put a candle in the bedroom, then I put you on the bed, and I took the other candle with me to the kitchen to prepare food for you. While I was preparing
food, the candle in your room fell and the room caught fire. I could not smell the smoke because I was suffering from a bad cold that day but I heard the neighbors saying with their loud voices (fire.. fire)

I rushed to check on you and I found the fire and smoke coming out of the bedroom. I tried to enter the room and the fire almost devoured me, so I back off a little and covered my body with a blanket and entered the middle of the fire to look for you. The blanket caught fire so I threw it and when I was looking for you, the fire caught me with my hand and my hair but I didn't care about myself, I found you in the middle of the bed, I held you before your body caught fire, I hugged you and started moving quickly because the fire managed to catch me.

I came out of the room and found the neighbors who came to help us, they brought water to put out the fire, and as soon as I got out one of the women took you from me while the rest tried to put out the fire that was in my body. After a while, your father came from work and took me to the hospital, I was crying from the fire pain that was in my body, but I was happy that you are fine. Do you know now the cause of the burns on my body?

Joseph looked at his mother with tears in his eyes and said, "Forgive me, mother, you are the greatest mother in the world. You sacrificed yourself for me; I am sorry mother." The father followed the situation from afar, then entered and embraced his son and his dear wife. From this moment, Joseph changed his position and insisted that his mother come to the party.
