I write so I can breathe. I am constantly evolving, mindless at times, frustrating even perhaps but heck, I wouldn't change the smell of freedom that comes with writing.

The Insanity called Friends

When life brings you changes, embrace it. For, there is a beauty to it you will see only when you have given your life a huge polar bear hug. Why a polar bear hug? Oh well…is there any that will be warmer than that?

Life brings you chances with changes. You may remain single for a long time or be someone who simply finds ‘the one’ real soon. However, what happens in between that is entirely up to you. If you embrace it all you will find yourself drawn and crazily hurtling into a wonderland like Alice did. There will be madness, inane conversations, weird sense of self and those around you…oh wait! That comes when you hurtle down into wonderland with a bunch of crazy strangers like yourself that turn into friends.

After all, who is a friend? A friend is a stranger you ought to know. Not in all cases but heck, you have brains to figure that out. I mean, figure out which stranger to befriend. It helps to have fairy godmother to help you out a bit here as well. It doesn’t mean you always need a fairy godmother to bring you to people like yourselves and magically run the wand over all your heads and make you friends.

Friendship is more than that. Friendship is an epidemic of sheer insanity that is bonded together with a lot of love, care and affection. It is that burst of joy that will touch your life and make you feel this is really heaven and then when you go your own way; there seems no hell like that either. But hey, I am talking about the joys here.

Why do some people end up hanging around each other and boy, before you blink an eye, the insanity of the conversations end up making you think Pidilite got its idea for Fevicol from here? Well, that maddening conversation can be utterly annoying for those outside the periphery of those bound together by this bond. It does not take the same kind of people to become friends. It takes an insane bunch of absolutely different people to make this shine.

For the past few weeks this insane affection and thoughtfulness, masked within the folds of utter indifference in conversations, has allowed me to breathe a little easier, washed away some of the pain that afflicted my insides, made me smile and forget stuff that makes my heart ache.

Appreciate the friends you have in your life. Be there for them. There is no tomorrow to mend a broken heart or soul. There is no mending it alone without the support of friends. Cherish them. Treasure them. Do not take them for granted ever. They are God’s little miracles that happen to you. If you do not given them the importance and attention they deserve, they will fade away, like dusty abandoned books on your mantelpiece…they will be there. But, they will, irrevocably be in a state of feeling abandoned, unwanted and slip down that chasm of self-confidence. Hug them. Pull them up. Kick their ass once in a while but don’t forget that they need a pat on their back and loads of appreciation.

Dollops of sunshine and happiness to those who have lit up my life in the past couple of weeks -The darkness was bearable because you were there. I love you all – you know who you all are.
