What happens when everything seems to fall apart in your life? You are confused and the first thing comes to your mind Why me? At first you feel sad then the anger takes charge over you and in that whirl of resentment, you begin to lose temper and unintentionally hurt your loved ones. Those loved ones who are part of you, your endeared parents! But you take them for granted because you know they won’t ever leave you.
The needs of fulfilling our wishes make us self-centered. We start to overlook our beloved ones.
Sad but true! We do not give time to our family because we are ‘busy’ in our stuffs. I remember when my mother was injured in a road accident and the day before this particular incident I had a huge argument with her. Only because she needed my company and I had no time to listen her for even few minutes. She was upset and even I apologized for which she forgave me. Next on the day of accident, forgetting all what happened last night she accompanied me for my assignment. While finishing my work, we headed towards home and while crossing the road she was hit by the bike in front of my eyes. I saw her thrown away on the road from where she was. It was like a bad dream that came true. The entire world around me seemed to collapse, I was aghast with terror. She was lying on the road and me and my sister picked her up and took to the nearby hospital. She was unconscious but there were no tears in my eyes because I was in the state of shock. It was like life was slipping away from my hand. Whole one week I was in the status of uncertainty, but once she regained full conscious, she said,” I am sorry beta, I could not go with you for your assignment but do not worry I will get fined soon and then I will take you.” I was out of words and tears started running from my eyes. If anything goes wrong in our life we hurt them either voluntarily or involuntarily but here she is, trying to console me.
We all are in a rat race for something and we think that if we achieve that ‘amazing thing’, happiness will knock our door. We are never satisfied with whatever we get because we want more. We just crib about what we do not have rather being thankful to Almighty of what we have. Our family is the one that supports us in our trial times no matter what happens they are always with you. When you do not acquire what you want, they are there to encourage you. However we forget all this because we are so busy in trying to win the contest that we fail to see these loving gestures.
