Family is your gift for being born
The Power of Family – Your Forever Support System
“Family is not an important thing. It's everything.”
What comes to your mind when you read these words from Michael J. Fox? There is a deep meaning that these words consist in them. According to him, the family is not something that you categorize as important or unimportant. But, your family is everything that you have with you.
All the people who have their families behind them are so lucky. These people must be grateful for their families as they have someone with whom they can share things. On the contrary, so many unlucky souls lost their families in some way or the other. The feeling of emptiness that they have with them is something that we cannot imagine. As Desmond Tutu rightly says,
“You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.”
Our Constant Support System
There is no other constant support system that we have other than our families. From the day we are born to the day we will die, they will be there for us. When we say family, we can count on our parents, siblings, cousins, and other relatives. It hardly matters as to what is their nature, what they like or dislike, do they meet our frequencies or not. We will have their back forever. Hence, when someone is thinking about a constant support system, there can be no other than our family members.
With Us in Good or Bad
Think yourself and try to answer a simple question. From where you get a constant reaction when you are in a good or a bad situation? No matter how much you earn or lose, who is always there to provide you the support that you need? Yes, it is your family who is there in thick and thin or good or bad. There is an unconditional love that you get from your family, which does not change in any circumstance. Hence, it would be best if you felt lucky to have someone with you in the times when you need them the most.
Always Pray For Our Safety and Well Being
Do you sometimes sit back and think about the person sitting and praying for you all the time? You will hardly find any individual other than our family or our loved ones who pray for us. Our family delivers and gives us well wishes that keep us prosperous, healthy, and happy.
What Can We Do For Them?
There are a lot of people who ask the question as to how they can do good to their families. What is it that can they do to deliver them happiness? Well, there are just some simple deeds that you must do to provide a smile on their face and make them feel a part of you.
Always be in Touch
In this busy schedule of life, we often forget about our loved ones. We are so active in our work that we do not find the time to stay in touch with our families. If you want to do something for your family genuinely, make sure you keep in touch with them. Never make them feel alone in life. You can call or text them once in a while. It will help them feel good, and they will think that they, too, have someone wishing for them.
Ask about their Needs
If you are capable enough with financial or social skills, always ask about your family's needs. Several individuals are fighting the battle. We know nothing about it. Therefore, it is your responsibility that you ask them what they need. Also, make sure that you try to understand when they demand something from you.
Be with them in Tough Times
Tough times do not last much. However, people who stay together in tough times have the strongest bonds. You have to be with them in their tough times. Give them mental, social, physical, or financial support when their life is not just. Always be supportive because when you are in need, they will come to permit you. According to Friedrich Nietzsche,
“In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony.”
