This is something I've been wanting to write since two years[It has really been a long time after that :D];But finally I've overcome the hesitation and reluctance :)
It's about the teenager psychology these days.I don't mean that i'm not a teenager,but all those typical 21st century TEENS and also some people who are not in the teenager category,but still have the same mentality.
I've friends who have absolutely different theories of enjoying life.They think flirting,having a short-term relationship for time-pass with a guy/girl[whoever it may concern]is ENJOYING life[or in other words they also call it a status symbol].They don't seem to understand commitment and take relationships to be a game-be it any relationship.
I don't at all understand this point.How can anyone be in a short-term relationship with someone,share a part of himself/herself with them for a few months and then leave them mid-way in life- This is something which I always wonder when I see people in such a relationship;and they're actually proud of it.It is something out of my comprehensive power.
People say things they don't mean,fake feelings,play with emotions and toy with relationships.They make various kinds of false promises,show many dreams and then ultimately crush those wishes and hopes.Moreover,they don't realize that they've hurt someone's feelings and don't even feel sorry.They can conveniently flirt,hurt,forget it all and behave normally like any other
To all those people out there who are surrounded by such people-Be patient.Someday they'll realize the essence of relationships.[Better late than never] :)
Alright now about those fairweather friends who are never there when you actually need them.People very conveniently talk about being hurt by someone but forget how they had hurt someone,be it knowingly/unknowingly.
It was the year 2004.It might seem a very very small thing,but it reflects human nature.
On 12th June 2004,I had my S.S.C. result declared.
And after the results,as usual,the procedure for admissions in 11th standard had to be done.
I aspired to pursue medicine after 12th so obviously I had to go for Science stream.We were the last batch to appear in the exams with that course so the merit marks were also very high.I had a good score,but it was not enough to get in the first two merit lists[of the school of my choice].
I got impatient and was really desperate & tensed for admissions.
I had not filled the form of a particular[self-financed] "X" school and so I had to go there to get the forms.The same thing happened to my friend also,so we both decided to go to that school on her vehicle.
She picked me up from my place and then after completing all the formalities in the particular school,we decided to return back home.
Meanwhile,she received a call from home saying that they urgently needed the vehicle.
Alright, so what do you think she would have done?
Ok,no need to guess that.
I'm obviously going to tell you.She told me to manage my way home MYSELF[independently].
She stays barely half a kilometer away from my place,so it was not going to be a big problem for her if she would have dropped me.
I don't say that she was wrong or she is at fault.I can say that she's one of my best friends even today without any doubt.
I've never let this incident get into our friendship,but the thing is if I were at her place I would have definitely dropped her home.This may literally seem a very silly matter to talk about,but what I wish to convey through this incident is that I really stand by my friends whenever they need me and try to help them out in
whatever way I can.I do believe that everyone would have their own personal[social] life but then sometimes you should learn to stand up to everyone's expectations.I'm not trying to boast or brag about anything,but there are people who've "actually" told me "Dish,I don't expect anything from
anyone but તારી વાત જુદી છે."
So as i've said in my earlier post, Be someone everyone can depend upon.:)
