Growing up is hardly ever a smooth sailing transition. Before you get to open waters, you’ve got to watch out for the riptides. Interestingly, for better or for worse, we’re not alone. That’s where family comes in. They’ve got your back. They are all you’ve ever known. They assure you that you can always feel safe with them.
But that’s not always the case now, is it? We live in a reality where life is never a one-size-fits-all scenario.
Going back to the topic of growing up, it is a journey that calls for tough decision making. There are no ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ choices. All that exists are the ones you make, and that calls for you to be wholly responsible for them. It is only natural that not everyone can agree with your wants and needs. It goes without saying that they just don’t see themselves in them.
In such cases, the right thing is hardly ever the best thing. This is the part of growing up where your perceptions of the people you once grew up with changes. You will begin to mould your own definition of the concept of family. And that’s okay. Change is the only thing that is constant, and family dynamics aren’t an exception to that.
Here are some things you could do when you feel hated by your loved ones. Let’s give you an idea on how to work through negative sentiments healthily.
I hope you’re all enjoying February Haiku Month. I know I’m enjoying it; its truly a blast. I’m very happy with the momentum I’ve picked up. Likewise, it’s great to see so many new faces around !
Now, amongst other things, I’m a photography guy. Some of my poems on this site are complemented by original photos. I take great pride in my photos, and love sharing them with people. I love it when they find one they truly love.
Because I love sharing them so much, I decided to create my own, personal website for photography ! Check it out at:
There, you’ll find some of the photos you might already be familiar with, and plenty of others. Check back every now and then, and there’ll be even more. You can also follow my Instagram for updates, too:
