There comes the question, why does my cousin brother get pampered when I’m taught how to take care of a house as a kid?
When I was 8 years old, I was taught how to make a roti. By the age of 12, I could cook a whole meal. When my cousin turned 16, he was sent to a hostel for coaching in a different state.
My aunt visited him every few weeks, which was peculiar to me. Once the year was over, he almost failed because he wasn’t comfortable in his hostel as the food didn’t match his taste. His mother went to live with him for the next 6 months. She then came back when she thought he has settled again.
His finals came around and he almost failed again. He didn’t get admission to his college of choice. He came back to his house and is staying there now.
Recently turned 19, he has just learned how to make Maggi and tea. I’m a few years younger and every time I’m there, he expects me to cook for him.
Whenever we go out, he thinks he needs to protect me because I’m weaker, when the truth is I protect him more than he protects me.

A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then. For the children to feel wanted and loved, you must be able to spare some quality time with your wife and be present in the moment.
