The Memoirs of an Eighty year Old- Episode XV

Episode: Viewpoints

Hello again readers.. I am back with today's episode in which I am going to try to show the different viewpoints of grandma and grandpa.
Grandpa is an optimistic to the core and grandma is a realist. The writer in me thrives on optimistic stories while the person in me understands the realistic view. So it's a win-win situation. ☺

When we were casually talking about the relationship in the olden days, Grandpa feels that getting married at a younger age serves as a foundation for lasting relationship. "I feel that when you get married as a young person you know that there is some one waiting for you, so one who belongs to you and to whom you belong. So even if both are not together initially there is a feeling of bonding between them which serves as a foundation." 

Grandma doesn't agree with it. She says, "Not everyone feels the same. Some people take others for granted and do not value the relationship. There are a number of men who took the wrong route once they left their homes. They lost sense of right and wrong. They only hurt their families and messed up things for themselves and others. We cannot conclude based on our feelings alone. The wider view of the world has to be considered."

Now you do you guys understand what I was writing about at the beginning? This combination of optimistic and realistic view kept the entire family together and bonded. The strength to face anything and overcome it came from this team of two people. They not only held the fort safe and protected but also flew the flag high.

I end this episode saluting their partnership in which both are equal partners. Meet you again in the coming episode. Tell then, let's take inspiration from them to build strong and meaningful relationships.

Meet you again with another interesting episode. Till then, Bye.
