NOTE TO READERS: If your priorities aren’t straight, then don’t even attempt reading this.
A happy family is but an earlier heaven. Agree to disagree? This quote screams accuracy. Family is an abode; an anchor; a comfortable fallback; the only place that welcomes you with open arms. Love begins here and never ends! So here’s the rundown on why family is the best and biggest support system you’ll never need.
1. A SENSE OF BELONGING:
Nobody, I repeat, nobody would ease you out in no time or be there for you when all else fails.. And then there’s family. The perfect support system, love galore! They’ll throw love unconditionally in all possible directions. All you have to do it is grab it, bask in it and never let go.
2. NEVER LETS YOU DOWN:
When everyone else just zones out of your life and leaves you there to fend for yourself, there’s family waiting earnestly to grab you at the earliest and let you know that you’re never alone. There’s someone for you always! No matter what; be it in despair or happiness.
3. THROUGH AND THROUGH:
There won’t be an ounce of doubt that they’ll be there through it all. Through the good, bad and ugly. They’ll always have your back. What an endearing thought it is to have someone to hold you at your worst and put you right on top of their priority list.
4. EVERYTHING IS A CELEBRATION WHEN IT INVOLVES YOU!
There’s nothing as big as a family party at the drop of a hat. Be it your first school competition, graduation day, driver’s license test or your big fat wedding…Nobody will be as happy and cheerful as your family to kick start the party anytime and anywhere! Woot!
5. LIKE THE TWO SIDES OF A COIN:
Family can play the dual role like a pro. They can be your biggest blessing or your direct stairway to hell (well, not literally). What I’m implying is that they are very opinionated and judgmental ( which is a good thing) because you won’t get any other honest and most importantly, genuine opinion from anyone else. They are your worst critic and your best friend.
6. PERFECT LOOKOUT:
It’s but natural for us to cringe every time our parents or elders rant about how irresponsible and careless we are! Their endless advice annoys us, I know. But in the end, we should realise, they’re only looking out for us and no one does it better than them.
7. FAILURE IS ALRIGHT:
If you fail, they’re okay with it.. not because they’re immune to it but because they know that this too shall pass.. They know you’ll make it in the end. They only want the best out of you so if you fail once, twice even 7 times.. They won’t be rattled because they know you’ll stand up the 8th time, beautifully.
8. EMBARRASSEMENT TO THE CORE:
They’re loud, annoying, nosy, inquisitive, interfering and most definitely embarrassing at pretty much all social gatherings.. but you gotta love them. The umpteen number of nicknames, random mockery and what not.. it’ll prick you and make you want to throw a punch but in the end, love conceals them all.
9. THEY KNOW YOUR FRIENDS BETTER THAN YOU DO:
I don’t know how they manage to do it, but they can make out who the genuine friends are in NO time. They can tell by the second you bring your friends home. And I bet my stilettos, mums rock at this game. Call them judgemental…. but they’re least bothered. The truth hurts but it wins pretty much all the time!
10.WHO NEEDS A SQUAD?
Who needs a squad when your family is the perfect squad goal? These people are for life! No matter where you are or who you become, they’re always there to back you up because Michael J Fox was right when he said “Family is not an important thing.. it’s everything.”
