Today has been one of those days – where you know a new chapter is opening up in your life and there’s nothing you can do about it except accept it and go along with the flow. It may not be anything big; but still you need time to get used to it.
Relationships can be so fragile – between siblings; couples; or even friends for that matter. Nothing tests it more than staying together. This can make or break families; it brings out the best in some people while the worst in others.
Living in a joint family can either be a pleasant dream or an absolute nightmare depending on how the rest of the members are…and sometimes, even when things are going good, you need to separate and live apart to save the future of relationships; for things get complicated when siblings get married and have families of their own.
One day or another the question of breaking up and living in individual houses will come up; the only question is whether it will happen amicably or after a lot of unpleasantness. It is always better to part ways amicably; for then the relations are saved – and at the end of the day, you have two houses to hang out at right! But, of course, the time when the other family has to move out can be slightly heart breaking. After all, by staying together, so much would’ve been shared with each other.
So, with all these thoughts going on in my head, I was feeling slightly under the weather. That is when I came across this lovely forward (pic below)
It is neither great nor uncommon. Those are just simple word. And yet, something about it calmed me and I felt it made a lot of sense. I guess, at that point I just needed to be reminded of it. After all, nothing in life is static right. The only thing constant is change. We need to adapt ourselves to be that way as well. That way, we’ll be at peace with ourselves and those around us.
