Page 295: Grow

/ Sunday, May 24, 2015 /
Once Heraclitus said, “The only thing that is constant is change.”

As you grow older, you will discover that it's true. That you will change. Your parents, family and closest friends they will or have changed, and will keep changing – deliberately or not, slightly or boldly. The way they perceive things, the way they see life, the way they do things that they think work best for them, and reasons why they did and chose things.

You might not like it. But it’s inevitable.

And it’s important to understand that you and them are fallible.
It’s important to understand that they might have decided to choose paths that are different from yours.
It’s important to try to understand that they have their own considerations and have thought about the consequences.
It’s important to understand that it’s okay as long as they don’t hurt themselves or join terrorists group.
It’s important to understand that things that make you happy might not work for them, or even entice them.
It’s important to understand that perhaps life has given them unimaginable challenges and pressures that made them throw everything they used to have faith in.



Sometimes all you have to do is be with them, share comforting stories as well as a laugh or two – embrace the moment. 
It’s hard not to judge, but it’s not that difficult to hold the judgment inside.

Sometimes, all you have to do is try to understand that when people grow, they grow apart.
