My journey towards maturity...
The most painful feeling is perhaps seeing your parents getting old... old in the sense they start loosing their consistency over their very own rigid thoughts which at a point of time were holding even more importance to them than us ie., their own children.... When you observe these changes you know how much you mean to them and how afraid they are of the mere thought of loosing you... But we take too much time to realize all this... in fact most of us understand this only when we step into the shoes of parenthood ourselves and go through the same emotional turmoil... and till then we have lost them, our parents, our most prized possessions... The loss which couldn't be compensated even with the exchange of all the treasures of the world... the greatest loss of a lifetime....
What should we do then?
Are we supposed to ask their permission for everything?
Don't we have rights to take our decisions on our own?
Of course we do have.. and practically we cannot ask their permission for every possible thing we have to do.. what we can do is to get rid of our rebellion attitude and consider them before taking any decision that might affect their lives in any way... even if we wouldn't feel most satisfied doing so..
We must remember one thing,
"अपनों की कीमत सपनों से ज़्यादा होती है"
Hence it is possible this way only to prove ourselves worthy of the unconditional love we are being showered upon from them...
