The Ones Who Are Meant For Us


What do you think of when you see the quote, written on top of the attached image?

Many of you may instantly think of a person, with whom you are involved in an intimate relationship. After all, this is what the image is trying project to its readers.

In my case, for some personal reasons, this quote reminds me of my parents, and my grandparents. Most of us have a tendency of showing our best personal traits to people that we barely know; strangers, who can care less about us, but to “torture” people, who love us the most, in an unconditional way, with the worst qualities of all. I, included, have found myself so ashamed of behaving like a brat in front of my family, but acting like a charming prince in the public.

Relationship partners will change. They may come and go. Parents and grandparents are irreplaceable.  They are truly what we should cherish the most in life.

Our parents and grandparents are the ones, who will always be there to encourage us to be our best, and will still love and accept us at our worst.
