Some people make sacrifices we take for granted and never see. Humans tend to look at the negative and remember faults more than they remember good things. Maybe that's the way we are wired. But it is pretty terrible. We need to start appreciating those around us more and truly grow closer to those who really matter. It's ironic how sometimes I can choose attending an insignificant function more over than having dinner with my parents. If you think about it logically, of course my parents are my priority and my time should be given to them. But I expect them to always be there, to be understanding and to wait for me until I finish my other engagements.

Because they are always there, I assume they will forever be. I have lost things in my life because I have shoved them aside; put them at 2nd place because I thought that they understood me well and would continue to be patient with me. But for the same reason, they have left, and it's not that I totally regret it, but situations can truly be handled better. Sometimes its no use rumination over the what could have been and the what ifs...

Just remember your thank yous. It's a wonder what small thank yous can do to make someone's day...
