Friendship is the most beautiful, the most essential and treasurable realtionship.
Can you imagine life without friends? I cannot.
They let us be ourselves. They satisfy our emotional needs. Life is incomplete without a bunch of good friends you can talk to, fight with, eat around with, hang around with and what not. Most importantly they always lend you a listening ear and a shoulder to cry on in difficult times. I guess half of our problems are solved because there’s a species called ‘FRIENDS‘. 🙂
Few quotes on Friendship:
“A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be.”
“Most of us don’t need a psychiatric therapist as much as a friend to be silly with.”
Some more with a deeper meaning:
“The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart.” ~Elisabeth Foley
“It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend.” ~William Blake
Friendship is extremely powerful. It can make you and, it can break you. This is the Truth.
As you grow up the ladder of life, some of your friends tend to separate out, ignore and abandon you. Slowly, but smartly. You might not even be knowing this is happening, until you are finally exposed to the severity of the situation. It pains (you hide it), it pains a little more (you still manage to hide it) and finally the pain is so unbearable that you explode within. But, no one including you is even aware of it. At the end of it, all that is left is a depressed, lonely soul left all alone to sulk within. It hurts a lot, because you can’t just walk away. The old memories of the beautiful times you shared, hold you back and force you to stay seeking a second reunion.
You cry a lot. Feel a bit relieved. A feeling similar to the one after a heavy rainfall. You get up again, smile, laugh and work harder than before to be away from one and all, your ‘good’ friends, most importantly yourself. Because, deep within you there’s something that’s shattered into pieces, beyond repair.
That something is called ‘TRUST’.
Friendships are built on trust. Many a confidence is shared between friends, and once that confidence has been violated, then expect the friendship to be broken. Again, beyond repair. It is difficult, and at times impossible to restore a friendship. But if you work on trying to get along and fix things it may turn out to be a better situation from the existing bitter, awkward situation. But, most of the time, it will never be the same.
Getting a bit philosophical…but that’s the hard reality.
Trust is like a vase. Once it’s broken, though you can fix it, the vase will never be same again.
To all the painful hearts that are weeping within…the mool mantra is to “Let it all go!”.
Extend your hands, and welcome more friends. You never know when you’ll chance upon a diamond among the pebbles. 🙂
Thank all your friends, the ones that make you as well as the ones that break you, because those’re the ones who made you strong through this journey called Life.
Bye for now,
