To be a good son, good daughter, good friend, good daughter in-law, good son in-law etc etc is like making of a natural pressure vessel, volcano or inflated balloon in a due course.
Being human is easy and quite natural if we relax and let go. Many a times, to create a make believe image stresses the person who is casting himself/herself so. A tag of ‘being good’ to all leads to over expectation from receiving the good only parents, spouse, friends, in-laws……relations.
Sharing of happenings, good or bad need to be there to maintain human social needs. If not, bursting of the emotions take one or other form. Even to suicides, which are seen quite common with students now a days.
Keeping an open book with good and bad chapters side by side or back to back, balances human to remain being human.
React/respond where you need to react/respond. This way no regrets and thus no pressure vessel/volcano/balloon build up and you can spend fruitful life with a purpose.
