Things are not Broken, It Just Degrades
Of many things around us, we might see that those things sometimes are just collapse, and we feel that we can do nothing about it. Yet, most of the time we are mistaken. Almost all things show the signs of degradation over time. Degradation can accumulates and in some case grows exponentially. If we ignore or just don’t catch it signs, we will eventually find it failure to meet our expectation, perhaps just when we need it.
The above, not only true for things or equipments; it also true for human relationship. How many times you find that your relationship ends up badly? It might not be that bad if we pay attention, catch up some signs and do ‘maintenance’ to our relationship. We need to have some maintenance program for our system and equipment, and more important to have a maintenance program for those who dear to us.
If you find yourself left something too long, you might find it gone, broken, rust, and in some case already in someone else’s care.
Anyway, sometimes, the main maintenance needed for human whom dear to us, is to listen to her/him.
