Friends are meant to remember important dates, including your birthday, graduation, wedding and anniversary, and so on. This is because these dates define us and are a huge part of our lives just like a true friend is. If your friend remembers such dates, the value of your relationship grows. A casual or fake friend would not bother remembering such dates.
“We’ll be friends forever, won’t we, Pooh? ” asked Piglet.
“Even longer,” Pooh answered.
This endearing quote has sustained many a friendship, to the young at heart!
As we move on to chaotic, busy and stressful lives, we forget the promises, the words that we shared with friends. Maybe, maybe we outgrew usefulness to them.
~I characterize people by their action and I will never be fooled by their words~
That sentiment has never played me wrong. I have weaved lots of friends or so called friends out of my life. Life teaches us, but we never learn.
I have been in the mood for companionship for 10 months. It was a deep and yearning need for me. However, those whose attention I was craving were not available. It seemed as though I was abandoned by those who mean the most to me at a time when I needed them the most.
~People do not lack the drive, but the willingness ~Victor Hugo
And thus saying that, I feel that my friend my sister as she called herself truly and willingly abandoned me at a time when I needed her most. I knew this when after months of her not making an effort to be there, she called to thank me for my card to her husband’s birthday, their anniversary card. The tone was different, she wanted to make up time and effort in the lost months of silence.
~Give the gift of your absence to those who do not appriciate your presence~
There! That is my feelings. But maybe I did something and she did that to me!
~It is a blessing and a curse to feel everything so deeply~David Jones
And so, I have learned a lesson on friendship once again. I am forever searching for that one person that will be there for me in trying times not the good times.
~The best kind of friendships are fierce lady friendships where you aggressively believe in each other, defend and think the other deserve the world~
I never had that, but that is how I have given friendships!
