My niece who is a typical teenager declared to me that she cannot live without her friends.
They meant everything to her and as she said this I myself was transported back to my school and college days where friends were nothing less than semigods.
BUT then something struck me more
At different stages in ones life we come across people without whom we feel our world would end that point.
It would be a sad place to live in.
Parents , friends , lovers , spouses , children ,- to name a few we think at different stages in our lives we cannot live without
But as I thought some more I realised that all these are external influences they may have a significant impact on the way I lead my life but definitely not permanent.
Life moves on............with or without them
We meet different people along the journey
we hold dear some , we forget many.
WE cannot live without ourselves , our knowledge (i am not using the word education here,they are different)
If we dont enjoy our company our life would be miserable sooner or later.
We will be frustrated , sad , blame others for our depressive state
You must love the person u see in the mirror.
For that u have to pursue things that nurture your mind,body and soul.
The sooner we realise this and start working on it each day of our life would seem more worthwile.
I hope someday my niece will also realise this and construct her life accordingly..........till then I let her enjoy the best , happy ,carefree days of HER TEENAGE LIFE
