I have a constant fear of losing loved ones. A fear that does not let me choose the correct and more beneficial path in my life. A fear or rather an obstacle in the way to success as it might seem to all others who cannot understand my feelings or do not make the slightest effort to understand them. Well, to me it is not a fear but something that holds a great value. I really appreciate the presence and love of all those around me. The love that nurtured me and made me what I am today. I want the people to understand and not mistake me for someone who lacks ambition but prioritizes family and loved ones over every other thing.
I can and I would love to achieve lots and lots of success. But sorry, I really cannot dare to dream of that success at the cost of my family and all others who are closest to my heart. I fear being all alone one day, cursing all that success and money and fame that separated me from the people who I consider as an extension of my very own body. I believe that money can be ninety nine things but not a complete hundred. And I fear losing that one last thing in the race of acquiring those ninety nine things because everything would be incomplete without that one last thing, which, I believe is the love and company of our fellow beings whom we trust and love. We cannot really appreciate these things until we leave them or are left alone unknowingly.
I would like to ask a favour from all my people reading this article that please start valuing every single relation, every single person in your life because they might not be there one day. We might not get all the love we have today in near future.
So, think wisely, choose wisely and respect and value the precious bonds in your life. It is because of these that we are humane.
Do not misunderstand my words please. I am not saying that we should give up our dreams and become lazy and dumb. What I am trying to convey is that do not ignore your loved ones in the hurry of achieving your goals and ambitions. We can never ever live your life on our own. We will always need a companion to be with us and to provide us a shoulder to cry on and a pat on the back to cheer us during the rough times. So be more ambitious and be more loving too.
Spread love and care more!
