... and some more
These are the genuine excuses that we all give and get when we must catch up with that one person who knows us the best. But how many times do we make a genuine effort in place of a genuine reason to sustain our bond with the people we feel closest to. Especially when one can grab a quick cell-phone chat while you're stuck in traffic or keep in touch via e-mail or instant messaging. Really, how much time does it take to send an sms or an email... just once a day???
It’s sad that despite all these means readily available, people slowly drift apart... even though our thoughts still go back to the same person time and again and the only remedy to our loneliness is their company.
There have been times when I have been too involved in certain things in my life that I have also given the same excuses and not been in touch. And when I came out of those phases, I found no one there to be by my side... and the 2-3 people who were still there, I knew I am never going to let go of them ever again.
I guess, it’s all about prioritizing... not people - but situations. We all have the limited 24 hours of the day... and it’s out of these 24 hours that we need to make time for everything we need, especially the people. This investment, I believe is the most important and the most rewarding too. To end, all I want to say is that friendship is not a god gifted relationship but it’s a relationship that we chose for ourselves... our extended family that we chose for ourselves and hence it’s up to us to keep it strong. Cuz it’s mutual and I need them as much as they need me... And so I shall "MAKE TIME" - I promise :)
PS: I would like to dedicate this to Kevin – my best friend ever – if god gave me an option to chose between making all my sorrows disappear and getting you back… I would choose to have you back, cuz that my friend, will make the biggest sorrow in my heart and the biggest void in my life vanish automatically. Happy Birthday Kev - May your soul rest in peace!
