Granted!



Nice thought!

But I realise I am always taken for granted... why is that?

It is taken for granted by my sis that I am the one who is supposed to cook and clean the house. Her job is only to wash vessels and that's it! nothing this side or that side. Last two days I have been having late night telecons and hence she is supposed to cook in the house (only maagi that too..) but then, when I go home she is totally pissed that I am not doing anything and she is the one doing everything (what? for 2 days!!!). K I forgive her because she is still young... and also she is very sweet other times.. I really Love her...:) and I also know that she is not very much inclined toward house keeping. That's ok.

It is also taken for granted that I am the one who is supposed to do all the socialising with my BF's family. If I don't make a phone call for some 15 days to his sisters I have to be prepared to hear complaints that I have become very busy and don;t call up people! why is it that they don't call? Why is it always have to be me?

Office... I am always "expected" to finish all the work... others have all the commitments in the world! and can't do it... but me... oh come on... I can do it! anything and everything!

Home... taken for granted that I will always listen to my parents. Will never let them down (even if something hurts me terribly! I have to make sure I live up to their expectations!)

Friends... Taken for granted that I am always the one who is supposed to call and keep in touch... else I am no longer a good friend.

It hurts when there is no place for what you feel... when your presence is no longer aknowledged. Its assumed that you will anyways be there... So when you are actually there it's nothing great!

I am really a big dumbo! I never realised this until now... Only after seeing this picture I realised!
I have successfully taken myself for granted :P

Hey Shark,

You know one thing..you are one of the most wonderful persons I have met till date... I really can't afford to take you for granted.....

I also understand this feeling of being taken for granted by friends but one thing I am sure of is neither you nor me have taken each other for granted.

Its been 4 years since we know each other and now when you are all set come here I am going back in few months...
