Human nature.We get bored, tired and sick. Some give up, some don’t. Unlike the washing machine. They never get bored, tired and sick of washing, and spinning. Everyday doing the samething. Never complaining of the smelly and soiled clothes, the dirty towel etc. Us human, love to complain. No need to wait for an occurence to repeat so many times. You only need to get hit once , and you’re fretting like there’s no way out , as if there’s no other way to do things, to correct things. Apply this principle in any problem for that matter. Forget about the washing machine analogy. We’re not machines.
But we’re not lame beings as well. What makes us superior than other creatures is our ability to think, create options and able to choose, select etc. We’re strong in that we can direct ourselves towards or away from something we like, or we don’t like. Jenny loves music. Harry hates reggae. Mary like sushi. Jonathan hates Ryan Seacrest. I love friendship. I hate people who take away friendship from me.
Imagine myself as the washing machine now. Users of the washing machine dumps in so many kind of things in there. Love, hate, affection, greed, selfishness. Wash, rinse and spin. What comes out ? Love with more affection ? Hate of a lesser degree ? Less greed and more generosity ? Theoretically, we expect things to be better. More love, more affection, more giving than taking etc. Wait a few weeks or months or years, the things which was ‘washed’ by the machine, will make their way back to the washing machine. Even more Dirtier, smelly and soily than before…
Imagine this. You’re so into this friendship. You appreciate and look up to this some one. And after a while, without any signal or warning, that friend decides to stop befriending you for no definite reason. A few weeks later, he or she comes to you, and apologize saying it was too quick a decision and he/she had given in a deep thought; Not to dump the friendship. Fine still. Again, no warning, after a few months, your friend decided to call the friendship off. God. What would you feel like if some were to do this to you ?
Are you some kind of living machine who would happily allow anyone to walk in and out of your life like that ? and treats you just like a paper cup/toilet paper? crumple and toss it away after use ? Dear friends, people who has this habit of tossing friendship are merely heartless people. They greed for your affection, but when they find no comfort or warmth with you, they quickly turn away. They are afraid of being hurt, as if by getting hurt they would suffer and die straight away. They do not realize, people take time to get warmed up with friendship. People also take time to cool down after it has been taken away from them.
Approaching a slope, or walking on the frozen lake behind your house ; you would be extra careful wouldn’t you ? You do not wish to trip and fall. You do not wish to crack any of your bones more than you wish your heart would break. We’re all fragile. We’re all vulnerable. That’s reality. Soo… whats so-NOT-reality of getting hurt ? Its a day-to-day process to get hurt. In fact, it helps you become a stronger person. Don’t lose to pain. Don’t turn away if you don’t find comfort. Do no get sick and tired with your friends, as you never know what you’re missing until you totally put them behind you.
I had a close friend once. He left me. Then he came back. Then he left me again. Again, he made his appearance. In less than 1 day after he came back to my life, he decided to call it quits. I’m not a cash deposit machine , which rejects torn/crumpled notes. Even torned and crumpled notes have its value. So, won’t it be damn annoying to have someone repeatedly peek-a-boo ing in your life ? He/she who does that to you , may, to a certain extent thinks You are heartless when in fact, it is he/she who is the cold one here.
I you have such friend, just watch out. Nobody wants to get hurt. I had enough of these junks. I’m already bored, tired and sick. But I never give up on my friend/friends, always praying and hoping them the best . All in the name for an eternal friensdhip. God Bless all of us.
