Random Thoughts In My Mind

The world has become an amusing place...

We need Facebook to tell others how we are feeling

We need Twitter to have an opinion

We need Instagram to enjoy our food

We need Snapchat to cherish memories

And most of all, we need an internet connection to have a life...

Are You Still Proud of Me DAD ?

       I know, another question....

Google
DAD,

       I love the way those 3 letters make me feel. I capitalize them like I capitalize GOD. A simple thank you is really not enough to cover for everything that you done for me. What I feel the most I can do to reciprocate (I avoid the word payback) your love and affection is to bring out the best in my academics. But that too I have been unable to do so far. I have failed you so many times DAD. That I cry at nights thinking I am just a liability to you. And the worst part? As the tears dry up by the time sun rises, so does the realization. I wish I could tell you, that I try so hard everyday to live up to your expectations, but I fail everyday. And you know I know all the reasons, laziness, ignorance and above all procrastination. But, I need guidance DAD, your guidance. I am sorry I have failed you so often, I am sorry I couldn't live up to your expectations, I am sorry that I have to say sorry so many times for so many reasons.

     You always say anything beyond a certain limit is harmful. Do you remember I once asked you about smoking. In June last year I started smoking. My friend (I won't take names) introduced me to this side of the world. I smoked cigarettes and hookah. It was just a trial. But you know me better than anyone DAD. I got addicted to it. I would smoke at least 3 times a week. It reached the point where it was difficult to stand without having one puff in 2 days. Even though I quit it in December, I still feel guilty about the 7 months that I burnt money for such a dangerous health risk. No redemption can wash away the guilt of those 7 months. I still ask for your forgiveness. 

     Can I ask for forgiveness for one last thing? Will you forgive me...for the times that I went to drink at my friend's house? I lied to you many times, about my whereabouts and what I was doing. You always say you are proud that I don't have big demands for clothes, mobiles, games and all the expensive things. I think I was letting you down when I drained all those pocket money into alcohol. 

     I found the right path for the 2nd and 3rd mistake DAD. Are you still proud of me after hearing all this? All I need is your support, your love, your guidance. I promise DAD that I'll live up to every expectation of yours, make you proud. And yes, one more thing, I won't back answer and won't get frustrated so easily. Because I don't think it's right to blame you saying I got the hotheadedness from your genes.

Yours loving and faithful son,
Shashank

  3. Don't worry. Daddy would always be proud. What matters is the honesty and love that lies within your heart! Parents are best creation of god, they love unconditionally. Even I feel very bad I have been a stubborn girl. But loved your article.:)
