Your Newborn Baby brings bundles of joy and happiness to the family and is the center of attention and why not. The attachment, love and bonding get stronger as time passes and the little angel grows right in front of your eyes until the once-adored darling of the family enters his or her teens and then the landscape completely transforms.  From an adorable child to an intolerable brat, that is the story of many families and depicts a cycle with almost identical patterns.

Now what actually happens and what should ideally happen, and the roadblock! While there are many factors which lead to the aforementioned scenario but let us not discuss that and complicate the matter unnecessarily, let us get to the Cure in one straight giant leap.

To All Parents

Was your son or daughter a darling when he or she was a baby? If yes then just for a moment, visualize him or her to be the same lovable baby and then treat him or her the way you used to do (after that sudden and massive moment of realization). Trust me he or she is still the same child and there is no real change whatsoever. To your utter amazement, you will find that the canvas will instantly change as soon as you readjust your perspective.

After all you are the Big Boss, the legendary Director, the iconic Leader and a super Mentor! So act like one and take lead.

To All Young Dudes

Guys; those annoying parents are the same loving angels who took care of you when you were a baby. Just visualize them to be the same blessed angels and treat them the way you used to do when you were a baby. You will realize for sure that they are still the most lovable people in the whole world and they are your best friends. Don’t let your Imaginary spectacles show you illusions that in reality do not exist and they will certainly deprive you of immense blessings that you have on hand. Be smart. See the true picture beforehand, what you will eventually discover after a few years.

Sooner it happens, the better. After all, you are a cool guy!

Lesson

For all relations whether it is the Child and Parent relationship, Friends, Husband and Wife, Lovers or others, the cycle effectively remains unchanged, in most cases at least. The relationship is born, it grows, it matures and it declines. The corporate world has learned that their products or services follow the same life cycle and also that the decline phase can be deferred by adding some spice to their products. The same principle applies to relationships as well with the exception that the human beings are not products and are one’s most valuable assets. Once they are gone, there is no turning back, especially in the husband/ wife relationships.

Most of us learn it after trials and errors and we at times lose the most lovable people due to the unreal spectacles that time puts on our eyes. Our horrid illusions distort the vision and show us things that do not exist in reality. It is a demon that can be defeated by getting rid of the non- existent spectacles of misunderstanding. Just for a moment, imagine the good times you had together and see how it feels to you. If the feeling is good then it shows you the way forward. Whenever the illusions return, think of the good times you had together and the illusions will disappear.

Be nice to others. Be good to yourself. That is basically one and the same.

Cheers!!
