Some ties you are born with, some ties you bind on your own.

We, the children generation, always liked to tell the parent generation that ties we bound were enough. We didn't really need the born-with ties if they weren't holding out well. We could let them be.

How many of us swear to be closer to friends than relatives in the background? How many of us have defied family and home to be with or marry the one we choose? There has been times when the choosing was between family and the 'love interest'.

We, the children generation have walked backwards to prove wrong the thickness of blood and water theory. But once in a rare while we are placed on the other side of the fence. And we get a good view of the painful thinning of blood, and the flow of it faster than water... we cringe at the sight.

A good knot sometimes does keep the tie in place.

.. and once we are no longer "children" generation we try to make the blood thicker and make the ties stronger.

Could this be the reason why we cringe at the sight of painful thinning of blood?

We underestimate blood, always holding out for water.. but one will never how important something is.. until you lose sight of it...

And there are always HR heads asking for our blood.. to remind us how precious it is.. :D (sorry cldnt resist)

hey i think that why one has to choose between family and love interest...

do u think that there can be more love than what parents can give...

on the other hand if u r compelled to have a family of ur own then u also have to make sure that u get the most loveable person for the rest of ur life..

this is nothing but the viscious circle of life..

which continues generation after generation....

i have found in my life & experiences that you will at times have to make choices between the people u love. that good friends, whether related or otherwise, have been there for me to love and laugh with, to lean on, to cry with, to comfort and be comforted. that just bcz someone is ur own 'blood', does not mean that u will be able to love them, even if u love them, be able to like them, or that they will stand by u

so well said. i have often pondered on this. being the "children" generation you so well-defined. having rebelled against all and some more. but strangely with the passing of each spring, i am more and more aware of who i am and where i come from and how deep runs the thoughts for the family.

I think, as we grow older, that the knot holds. It's natural to rebel and find yourself, once you've found yourself, you're fine. 'Swot I think anyway.

Ties exist between the earth/nature and all life. Nature selects those life forms to go ahead and those to perish. Its a game played with dexterity and we are mere pawns in this game.

All other ties are imaginary.
