We have a three-year-old daughter. I am very close to an elderly couple who are our neighbours. As I lost my parents at an early age, they are like my parents. My daughter considers them as her grandparents. The couple is now relocating to Surat. Ever since I heard the news, I have been greatly upset. They were a great source of strength to me. How do I stop moaning about the fact that they are going away.
You say you lost both your parents, so I am sure you know how to tackle the loss of dear ones. They have their reasons to shift. And you have your reasons for them to stay on. Remember in life nothing is permanent. Reconcile yourself to the truth. Spread cheer for the few days that they are there with you. Think that they are just a telephone call away. May be you will strike a bond with your new neighbours.
