Cousins are those couple of people who are always taken for granted. Hence on the occasion of Raksha-Bandhan felt to write a blog for them.
Very well said, “What strange creature’s brothers are!” – Jane Austen.
They are born to irritate you, tease you, and make fun of you. Till date I did not understand what pleasure they get by making me cry. But if the random person tries to hurt me then let me tell you I have the best escort with me.
I won’t forget my sisters they are not any less then brothers.
Christina Rossetti – once said “For there is no friend like a sister in calm or stormy weather; to cheer one on the tedious way, to fetch one if one goes astray, to lift one if one totters down, to strengthen whilst one stands”
We often say that our friends saw us at our worst; and although this is true, our siblings were there behind the scenes at home. They are the ones who have seen us in the awkward embarrassing, joyous, and miserable times of our lives.
“I had a really wonderful upbringing. We were a tight family. It was wonderful to grow up with so many cousins. We were all just a year or two apart, and we were always so supportive of each other. I am very lucky to say that I have a complete set of cousins i.e. Sassy sister , an over possessive bro, motivating sis, swag wala bro, mischievous sis, Studious bro, disciplined sis, Bossy bro, Crime partner, personal stylist and younger bro who sometimes behave as if he is elder one 🙄😅😂🤣But all of them play an important role in my life. They are the ones who have taught me to live the life to the fullest, to face the situation and to handle everything gracefully. Frankly speaking relation with my cousins is just like tom and jerry. in a moment they are my biggest rivals and at other moments I feel immense love for them
Fortunately, I was the youngest sister of all in my maternal family (not anymore). Therefore, I was the one who was always ragged and bullied. I still remember during summer Vacation my day use to start fighting with brothers and would end seeing getting them punished (which use to be the best part of the day). Although it is easy to get on one another’s nerves, the underlying truth is that we continue to have trivial arguments because we know we can but they can always be resolved….
On the occasion of rakhabandhan would love to thankyou for always been there for me. As “Sometimes we need someone to simply be there. Not to fix anything, or to do anything in particular, but just to let us feel that we are cared and supported.”
Would end the blog today by requesting you to go and tell your cousins how much they mean to you, no matter when you had a last talk with them, they are family and always there on your back even if you don’t spend gala time with them frequently….
