When ‘ blood is thicker than water ‘
• you listen to them tell the same joke over and over again showing no sign of irritation
• you often let them walk over you
• you defend them fiercely while you disagree with them privately
• you let them get away with things that you wouldn’t let others say
On reflection, I guess it depends on one’s nature rather than the Blood factor. Some people put up with much, some with nothing. And further confusing reflections say, putting up with things is sometimes good, sometimes bad.
Also, the Blood vs Water argument is itself flawed. Many of the people who have my back all the time do not share a blood relation with me.
So what exactly have I learnt from this introspection?
Just that I need to think more about it. Or maybe, stop thinking and just be happy.
