Father came up with this theory. Well, it's not that he projected this theory. Apparently, he has read about this somewhere.
This is what the theory says(according to father):
Every woman/man loses people as he proceeds in life. People as in relationships, be it with family, friends....... And in the end, he is left with very few whom he can trust, or nobody, perhaps. It's something to that effect.
He also cited an example: a girl is to leave her father's place for her husband's house.(According to me, this is one of the most stupidest, senseless, flimsy, baseless idea that anybody can come up with). He gives this illustration, even when M and me have battered him with never-ending arguments. Anyways, he'll have to agree with us one day. Now, that's something else.
Coming back to the actual theory, mother and me disagreed. Instantly. Thus ensued a debate on it.
This is what mother had to say: one does meet wayfarers in the journey of life. One'll probably break ties with them. But some people do exist who'll provide us with love and affection all through the way. It is these relationships that matter in substance, that'll effect us.
Her view sounds pretty approachable.
Here's my view: We lose out on people maybe, and on their bond that link both of us. At the same time, we also gain. On something that'll provide us affection. Most of the times, it occurs without our knowledge. We realise it's worth on spending some time on the same.
At the same time, there are a core group(mother's opinion). To support and encourage me at all times. Even if i assumed that the aforementioned theory did make sense: losing associations and all that. I would consider the fact that i make new alliances at the same time. The fact that i bond more closely with people surrounding me. Possibly, that's how i came to rely on my friends..... maybe my attachment to B also portrays something similar.
The theory sounds heartless.
