Can things ever be good enough for them?

​Has it ever happened with you that you felt like you were making all the efforts for the other person but that other person didn’t even bother much because.. well.. he/she was too caught up in their own mess and issues that they forget to see the better picture.. which we are trying so hard to create for them?  

I guess you know by now where I’m heading with this. 

Today… I realised the importance of appreciating someone else’s efforts or their feelings… irrespective of how I am feeling or what I’m busy with. I cant ignore the person who is struggling to put up a smile on my face and be selfish and concerned only about my own self and feelings. I cant be so busy feeding my own depression that I forget to smile for someone whose happiness depends on it. 

This is not just the case with relationships like that of couples or friends..it happens with your parents or your kids or whoever. 

A lot of times parents forget that their kids are old enough to catch their vibes and can feel more deeply than they do about something.

A lot if times parents forget that their kids are old enough to catch their vibes and can feel more deeply than they do about something. It’s easier for grown ups to handle their emotions and that keeps them from feeling things so strongly or being overwhelmed by them but it’s hard and close to impossible for kids to control the intensity of emotions they feel. Look outside your own problems. Look at the ones who are  trying so hard for your happiness.

 It’s like saying “ Dad look I caught you a butterfly! The most beautiful of them all!” and the dad replies “I’m sorry son I’m pretending to be blind”
