There are three degrees of filial piety. The highest is being a credit to our parents, the second is not disgracing them; the lowest is being able simply to support them.By Confucius
We are the tech-savvy generation, who believes in mutual efforts, double-sided relations, give and take policies, right?
So, then the statement is justified itself; Parents should be our first priority, always!
Parents should be our first priority, always not because it is ethically right but because for them we have always topped theirs.
So, what if your thoughts aren’t matching with your mom today?
Still hugging her tight, gives you all the solutions.
So what if your father doesn’t understand your e-learning ways, and you don’t like it? He will still be the only one bragging about you and your technological skills in front of others.
So what if you are a girl and you are married?
That doesn’t give you an escape from the responsibilities.
So what if today they don’t understand you the way you want them to? Just once cry in front of them and see how they can cross all the limits to comfort you?
So what if you are in love?
That doesn’t mean you start neglecting your parents because they raised you while keeping their love aside with other sacrifices made.
So what if in a moment we feel we hate them?
The truth would remain the same; they only want the best for us. So what if your parents live with your siblings?
You still have the right on your parents as well as the duties towards them.
Start Doing Your Duties. Expressing Gratitude. Showing Respect. Put Efforts. Before It’s Too Late.
Our generation has made all of it hype.
Why is it such a big deal if parents make some mistake?
Aren’t they normal human being?
Why can’t we just normalize things?
It is okay to fight with your mom and demand from your dad, after all, they are ‘yours’, that doesn’t mean you are selfish or you hate them but definitely not right to forget that they are our parents.
It is okay to be angry, for a while, miss the food etc and expect them to come and make up for it but it is not alright to take that making up ‘for granted’.
It is okay if you want them to change with time and understand you more but it is not alright when you stop understanding them.
The ‘give and take relationship’ that every youth today is demanding can only be seen in lovers but when we talk about our parents, we just want them to adjust, to understand and to change.
We call ourselves the 21st-century brats so why do we forget that they haven’t been the brat when they were young.
Everyone has to live his/her life individually. The share of pain, happiness, mistakes has to be faced and so yes our parents can’t definitely stop all the bad coming in our way but can’t we just appreciate their thoughts for once?
They give us advice and lectures from the experiences they have faced and maybe that could help us to avoid some of the negative consequences that lie ahead.
And after anything and everything the point ends at, ‘They are our most valuable asset’.
Whatever they do, whatever we do, it should be a part of our love. There’s a lot of difference between respecting them and fearing them.
Option one is a better choice to make. They have to be our first priority, always.
