The decisions we make determine what's going to happen next in our lives. This is why we carefully weigh things down before making a decision that will surely change our life.
This teacher imparted a story to give a lesson to her students to teach them an important lesson in life.
In her story, there was a cruise ship which capsized at sea. On the ship, there was a couple that managed to make their way to a lifeboat but then realized there was only space for one...
This story, however, was not based on true events. Nevertheless, the lesson we learn from this will touch you.
The husband pushed his wife behind him and jumped onto the lifeboat himself. She stood on the sinking ship and shouted one sentence to her husband.

The students were told to guess what that was and one of them got it right.
The wife asked his husband to go and be the one to take care of their daughter as long as he lives. So with an aching heart, the husband submitted to her decision.
It turns out that when parents went onto the cruise ship, the mother was already diagnosed with terminal illness. At the critical moment, the father rushed to the only chance of survival.
He even wrote in his diary: “How I wished to the bottom of the ocean with you, but for the sake of our daughter, I can only let you lie forever below the sea alone.”
The story taught us that there are complicated things we sometimes wish or find hard to understand. We tend to judge others based on their decisions in life without knowing the whole story behind it.
