Family Drama

Not only is family a place, where love fest takes place, it can also be a hub, in which dramas escalate and hatreds spread in silence.

The multi-layered complexity, which exists in a familial environment, can never be underestimated and ignored, even if we want to, because the cliché solution, such as ignorance is bliss, oftentimes, cannot realistically provide us with a strong enough shield and counter-force to balance out the lack of equilibrium there is to detect in the air.

Family drama is, as it is proven to be, both the symptom and manifestation of an off-balanced dynamic. The awkwardness and hurtful feelings, caused by the deliberate acts, such as badmouthing, attention-seeking, and open display of rigidity to accept unfamiliar changes, usually lead to nothing positive but a downward spiral towards engendering a sense of alienation and disconnectedness.

Mosquitoes are bloodthirsty and ugly, same as family internal conflicts. Both of them are like this annoying, frustrating yet permanent fixture in a familial setting that none of us is able to remove completely.
