What Our Parents Need to Know

So if your parents are pressuring you to compete with ‘Sharma Ji ka Ladka’ then it’s you who has to assure them that you are not even part of that rat race. You have to let them know that you believe in your potential and you’ll be doing great in your own path. Mindsets won’t change unless you show them the big picture.

Perfection is unrealistic

Whomever we get together with will be radically imperfect in a host of deeply serious ways. We must kill the idea that things would be ideal with any other creature in this galaxy. There can only ever be a “good enough” relationship.
