If a Long-Cherished Crockery of yours Breaks, How will you Feel?

August 13, 2008 9:00pm CST
You know, I had this cup of old in which I used to have my morning chocolate milk when I was young. I really used to like the blue Chinese paintings on its side. So one day, when it fell out of my grasp and crashed into pieces, I felt really heart-broken, as though a very near and dear one is with me no longer. This also happened very long ago. After that, I was given a new cup to drink from, but frankly speaking, it was much less the fun than it used to be in the previous cup. I didn't know why. After all, it was the same milk. Did you ever feel like this? Have you ever taken a real fondness towards any of your crockeries so that no other piece of crockery would do for you? Share your thoughts and feelings. Cheers.

I can understand your feelings.when we use a thing for a long time , whatever small thing it is ,we grow an attachment with that.we become used to with that particular thing.but when one fine morning we find that it is gone it become very disappointing for us.but everything has a life span you know.so when you are not having that particular thing you have to accept that .I will feel exactly the same as you do.

I learned long ago, when I had children, that it does no good to get too attached to anything breakable. As soon as you do, this is the one thing that your kids will accidentally break.
