Whether in profession, selection of spouse, eating out at a restaurant or while on holidays, many people feel that they have got broken biscuit. “I should not have taken this job”, “I made a big mistake by marrying this lazy husband/short tempered wife when I had so many other options”, “oh, no, we should have ordered what the people on the next table are enjoying”, “instead of coming to Kerala for holidays, we should have gone to Nepal like our neighbours. They really had great fun at less expense…”.
People often feel that the grass is greener on the other side. It is nice to expect the best but it is wise to accept what is available rather than indefinitely craving and waiting. Be it personal or family life, job, country in which a person decides to settle down, or for that matter, any situation is a blend or a package of what is good and not so good. Would it not be wise to relish the “broken biscuit”?
Let us remember that all of us are broken biscuits – broken or otherwise.
