We have our families whom we rely on from the day we step into this world till the moment we bid it adieu. We have friends, who accept us for who we are, no judgements passed. Time and again, we come to realise, that ultimately it is the people in our lives, who are our real treasure. Yes, money is a necessity, but our loved ones are our real sources of strength and joy. Then, why is it, that at times, we hold on to some bitter words uttered by our dear ones in moments of passion, and carry those in our hearts for the rest of our lives?
Why is it, that we find it so difficult to forgive, to let go, of something that happened eons ago? Why do we fall short of that little bit of love that requires us to forget that painful past and embrace our people to live in a peaceful present? Why, for a moment, do we not empathise with those people, and try to understand why they said/did what they did? With our perceptive natures, is it too much to ask for?
Life, as we know it, is uncertain; death , as we know it, is so certain. Then, why don’t we use this short, uncertain period that we have on this planet to live with love and happiness? Why those grudges, that bitterness, that jealousy, and that angst towards people who are an integral part of our world? Don’t they accept our shortcomings, and forgive our faults with their large hearts? Then, why can’t we do the same and move ahead, hand in hand, till death do us part?
