Sometimes people closely related to you behave and talk so insensibly without realizing that their insensitive insensible words leave a deep wound in your mind taking a long time to heal, but what's worse when they continue behaving as if nothing has ever happened and no harsh words were ever spoken. Sad that your near and dear ones who claim to have known you from your childhood days behave so strangely at times....it feels keeping expectation of any sort leads only to heart burn. The less expectation you keep from people, the more are chances for your heart to remain unhurt.
Talking about heart, aside from keeping your emotions in check, there are certain other mandatory things to be done for the betterment of your heart, like eating oats daily. Now I am sure like me you too might get bored of eating the same recipe of oats with milk and fruits. So variety should be the key word to keep your relationship with oats going strong.
