They may act as if they are unaware of what’s going on in your life
They may pretend as if they know nothing about your daily titbits
But they actually do…
They know when you are lying and when your talks are true
They know when to act like a buddy and when to be your mentor
They know when to give you space and they know when to encourage you when you are on a undulated pace
They know when you need their advice because they know you may be an adult but still not that wise
They are ready to sacrifice their morsel of food to satiate your hunger
They may pretend as if everything’s alright even if things seem in danger
They make you laugh
They answer your cries
They never expect anything in return except love from your side
And what can you do?
Yes… Life is too busy
But if you can spend some time on your mobile phones checking notifications
Then why can’t you spend some quality time with your parents keeping your phones aside for a while
Why can’t you develop the courage to share your goals and visions with them?
You would say they may not understand your thoughts
Yes, they may not..
But they do understand you..
They can sense what makes you happy
They can see the enthusiasm and curiosity in your eyes when you discuss your personal and professional goals with them
How would this happen?
This may require patience
But talk to them..ask them to put forth their opinions
And listen to them without labelling their advice as right or wrong
Yes, they may not be always right but heart to heart conversations makes the bonding more strong
They will definitely encourage you if you yourself are clear about your decisions
Yes, you must have the clarity first if you expect others to understand you
Life is too short
And it all depends on you how you make your loved ones feel special
This can happen only when you love them selflessly…
