Let them go!

All of us have encountered at least one such person in our life who was really special for us before they turned into complete strangers. It could be a special relation or just a dear friend. We feel like they have just turned their backs and left us broken. We feel that we are in this dark place from where we will never come out. We try to go back to them, plead them, but suddenly they have turned into stone – nothing works.

I know it is really a difficult time and any advice given just feels like nonsense. But pause. And think. There are more than 7.5 Billion people on Earth and we are still stuck with this one – who doesn’t even acknowledge your presence anymore. Is it really worth losing your self respect and your time?

We all are under this false sense of security that we will wake up tomorrow. We all end up wasting our time and energy over things which doesn’t even matter. Spending so much time and energy for this person – is it really worth?

Focus on yourself!

May be that person is actually worth it, maybe not! But I am pretty sure, more often than not, it is better to move on. If you really matter to her/him, she/he will definitely come back. Why not spend your time doing something worthwhile in the meantime?

Go out with your friends, learn something new, meditate, travel, go on a vacation, meet new people, help someone, concentrate on things that really matter to you right now – and it’s definitely not her/him. It’s time for self-development and self-love!

A lot of people become so engrossed in their past, their sorrows that they are unable to see the opportunity standing right in front of them. So just remove these dark lenses and see the now – it’s all right there for you – all that you ever wanted.

I strongly believe that life is made up of different experiences. And each of them is different. Everyday is a new day. This was just one of so many! So just keep looking forward to more these amazing experiences, keep looking forward to life. You never know when things might just click for you.

In the meantime, full concentrate on yourself – the single most important person in your life who matters the most!

Friends are forever

Friends – we all have them. They are like our extended family, sometimes extended part of ourselves! With them, we can be as crazy as we like and still be counted sane!

They are the people whom we share our every secret, every joy and sadness. We have fights, we patch-up, we talk about our crushes and we bitch about our enemies. It’s like an all in one package!

And then – as we start growing up – from school to college and from college onwards, we start losing contact. No matter, how close we were or how many promises we made to always be close – we never can hold them. Everyone starts being busy in their own life – in the race to earn money, to get married and settled.

We have to make plans to keep in touch with your friends. The everyday calls that we made to share every teeny-tiny detail become once in a month call. We have to schedule a meeting to catch up when there were times we used to just drop into their homes unannounced! You start to drift apart.

And now when you are stuck in bad times, you sit and cry alone – thinking you have no one to turn to, you are lonely and you need to talk to someone. You literally scroll your contact list and end up calling no one. You feel everyone is busy in their lives handling their own problems. You just don’t want to add to their burdens.

At this point, I want to tell you how completely wrong you are! Remember, they have been your friends through thick and thin – through all those heartbreaks and disappointments. All you need to do is just reach out to them.

Sure, They are busy in their lives. But that doesn’t mean that they will ignore you! They might take some time to respond back. But be assured – they always have your back!

Like its said – “It’s times like these when you come to know who your true friends are!”

I always thought I understood this sentence – until when I was in a situation that made me realize how true this is. Now having lived it, I can truly connect!

So guys – just reach out to your friends – tell them how much they mean to you and how much you miss them. Call them often. Ask them how their day was, ask them how their life is going.

Like I always say – these small things matter a lot! And these little things will rekindle your friendship.

Remember – your time is the best gift you can ever give!
