You know, those people that we see with perfect families? The ultra cool parents, every weekend picnics, the tight circle of best friends, cousins turned friends and the ultimate chilled-out relatives.
Well, most of us never had that. And it sounds too good to be true. But, no, seriously, some people have this. The thick bond that they share with their friends and families.
We have had friends turned into family and family turned into strangers. Best friends turn out to be soul mates, and family members hiding as snakes.
It doesn’t matter if you have not spoken to friends in a while.
It doesn’t matter if you have not met your family for some time.
It doesn’t matter if you have neither family nor friends to call your own.
It doesn’t matter if your family is too strict with you.
It doesn’t matter if your friends are too busy to take out time for you.
In the long run, almost everything is trivial, and what remains is the unbreakable bond that you share. Because some things do matter.
It matters when you keep in touch with your friends.
It matters when, once in a while, you meet your family.
It matters when you have people you can call your own.
It matters when your family is understanding.
It matters when your friends take out some time for you.
They say a family’s bond is unbreakable, and nothing’s bigger than your own blood.
I say it is not necessary to be related by blood, it’s how the relations are being maintained that matter.
