It's funny how we humans only realize the worth of something when it is taken away from us. How we only want the things that are not given to us. How we envy others because of their luxury.
Yesterday my mother, father and siblings left for Lahore and even if it were just for a day me and my brother missed them so much.
When they weren't gone I would complain to my mother that we would never have a decent conversation because she was always busy, I would complain that my father wouldn't take us anywhere and that my siblings were always crying and throwing tantrums.
Now that they are away I do realize that even seeing them in front of my eyes alive and well was too big of a blessing, eating the food that my mom cooked for me, hugging my dad when he returned from work, comforting my siblings when they were hurt.
It's strange that how in a span of 24 hours I've realized so many things in my life that if were taken away from me I would have remained traumatized for life.
Many times in cartoons, dramas they show the protagonist as an orphan who had been bullied and abused and yet still was happy and cheerful and many times us kids create our own character of this sort to fit in the show and wish to live a life as theirs but,
It's not that easy, manning up and facing the world, when many adults struggle with this so thinking logically how could we?
In the end my point is that these annoying siblings and controlling parents of ours are the truest and purest gift of life so no matter where you are and who you are just take a second and be grateful for this gift of life.
