Some people suffer from depression and many don’t. But there are people who are sad,upset or depressed but have not gone into depression. These people are happy with a dark side.
One of friend is one such person. She is from a well to do family and is the only child. Her parents fights everyday on everything. Sometimes these arguments get violent. Sometimes her mother is at fault, sometimes her father is , and sometimes the communication is just off between them.Their issue can be solved if they want to . My friend has seen this since her childhood. She has witnessed a broken marriage , fights , screams and wounds.
Did she try solving the issue? Yes, but it didn’t help as her parents didn’t want to co-operate.
Does she not want a normal family? Yes,she does. But she is not getting it from her parents.So, she is determined to find a “normal family” in future-that is- when she finally meets a guy worthy of her love, she wont let anything go wrong in the family she will create with him.
My friend – She is a 25 year old who is giving her best in career, who is independent, who is a feminist, who is a good friend and who is constantly searching for her “normal family”.
Yes, there are days when she doesn’t even want to get up from bed , when she wants to scream. But believe me, she is just another girl who loves to shop , to eat , who knows to have fun. She is just another person looking for her “happily ever after”.
