What drives people to cut-throat with each other? Jealousy, greed, pride and wrath. This is pretty common in large families when it comes to getting their inheritance in the form of money & property (like land) disregarding the quantity.
It baffles me how people can live in duplicity to achieve their goals. Is it even worth the hassle? Is it worth burning the bridges of your kinsmen? Maybe yes, maybe no; It all depends in your principles – your value system.
If you ask me, I’ll bluntly say no. It isn’t worth the shot. For why should I fight for a legacy which doesn’t amount that much when I can just make my own through my sustained efforts.
I don’t desire for things which aren’t freely given, same with love. But no, I am not afraid of hard work. I usually get what I want if I put my mind on it albeit, it should be worth my while, else I won’t even lift a finger, you get the gist?
As a child, I’ve pretty much observed how this sort of close ties ruined countless men. I can’t stomach the repetition of the drama and deception involved.
It’s one of the reasons why I detest being vulnerable at some point and preferred to keep to myself despite being around people who seem to feel entitled to cater to my every whim.
Thanks, but no thanks: I need no feigned affections at the cost of besmirching my name. I pity these creatures and at the same time I’m repulsed by the idea of being related to them.
Nevertheless,I’m thankful that I’m not like them. I know I’m blessed. I’m destined for greatness, not for madness.
As much as possible, I avoid having intimate talks to their kind whenever the situation calls for me to mingle. Every word uttered shouldn’t incriminate me or my family, else they’ll weave a bunch of twisted tales. Quite fanatical, eh?
I’m getting weary of people and their ulterior motives. Why can’t they sincerely state that they need the property instead of fabricating tales that can eventually lead to a person’s ultimate downfall? People, this isn’t like the Game of Thrones. I refuse to be a pawn in this game.
It’s not as if my family needs it, I know I don’t. But I guess mom wants that memorabilia and I can’t deprive her of getting what’s rightfully her share. But I’m done with it and I don’t want to take part in the quest of receiving a measly bequest.
In the end, it takes a strong person to confront people and only cowards scheme their way to the top. My advice: Go have a life, you seriously need it. If you do that, then you can appreciate what you have and bask in gaiety life has to offer.
