The ultimate truth of life is that you are always alone. You may have parents, friends and every other relation that you can think of. But, in the end, it’s all down to you. Sometimes you may feel that your thoughts are unfathomable and no one can touch them, and sometimes, your thoughts are so vulnerable that even a person with a slightest guessing power will be able to muddle them. Human thinking will always be groovy and it is the one thing that will fascinate me forever.
We live around people, and we are used to this feeling of togetherness and intimacy in some way or the other. And because of this reason, when someone close to you drifts apart, it always hurts. Your fingers won’t be enough if you want to count how many of your friends have drifted apart till now. The thing with people is that, they want to be noticed, that’s always there. We get this enigmatic pleasure when someone notices us and we are slaves for this pleasure. And when this pleasure loses its lustre, we drift apart. And the sad part is that, we never realize that we are drifting apart. It is not our fault though; it is one of the ethical defects of being manufactured as a human being.
One day, when you look back at your past, you will just accept the fact that you are now completely not friends with the person who was your once upon a time friend. And as the new friends come into your life from time to time, the loss of the old one will be balanced soon and people will just move on with their lives. But the problem is that, there are people who find it hard to find friends and they seek solace by dwelling in the past. This isn’t a good thing or a bad thing, it is just who that person is. Sometimes, people like solitude, they like to keep secrets. Even the best of the best friends have secrets. I’m the kind of person who likes solitude and I totally understand people who say that books are their best friends. People need an outlet and there are so many things in this world which can provide it. And when they get this outlet, they need friends with the same outlet as them which is too troublesome. My outlets are books and anime.
Do you remember the moment when you met your best friend or for the first time? You have no idea how important that person would be in the future. I strongly believe that childhood is the only time when you make a best friend. Don’t you think so? When you are a child, your conscience is purer than anyone and you will make a best friend just like it’s a natural thing. As a matter of fact, it is a natural thing. After a few years, your conscience will be filled with the evils of this world and your thoughts will change accordingly. You will start having secrets; you will start telling lies to your friends, parents and everyone. This world will attract you with its things and people who share the same attraction, club together and they become friends. This is described as the teenage phase by the psychologists. The friends that you make when you are in your teens can leave a profound impact on you as both your heart and brain intake much amount of vibes than usual. And when that friend leaves suddenly, no matter what the reason is, it will damage you from the inside and you will not be the same person anymore. It will take time for you to get back into your original state again and in this recovery time, you will feel nostalgic about your old school and your old friends as things bounce back into your brain. Everyone will go through this phase for once in their life time. Sometimes they realize and sometimes, they don't.
The realization phase is the final phase. After this phase, the friends that you meet are the ones who are given to you by the society. You will judge people, but you will not care so much about your judgement as you have this feeling in your heart that you might have judged them in a wrong way. You will be on a take it easily policy mood most of the time and you will start diverting your mind towards the things that you like. When you are an adult, you will have a family and that will occupy most of your mind, but once in a while, you would like to go back to your old college, old school and the places that you used to hangout. The prospect of a get-together will bring a spark in your eye, and things that are associated with your memories will remind you of them. Friends are the best gifts that you can get in your life. As we people are imperfect, and as our desire sometimes overtakes the importance that we give to our friends, we usually fail to last as friends forever. But if you and your best friend understand that everyone has a life apart from friendship and love, then no one can break you people apart. Anyone on your mind now?
