We all get lost in our lives; so much so, that some things just slip off our hands. Sometimes, we let things go. Sometimes life happens and circumstances turn up. Such that we have no control over.
Fading Relationships in one of those circumstances.
In all the hustle and bustle of competing, running and making a living, we all believe that we would have to sacrifice a lot and relationships are one of the most important, if not the only thing. We make peace with the circumstances by thinking that distance came in the way.
The sad part is, that no one even tries to break the cycle of norms, that are totally uncalled for.
I am not talking about unnecessary, toxic relationships here, but rather people who we swore meant the world to us. Parents, siblings, close friends…
Now that we’ve grown up, moved to a new city in search of a new life and new experiences, we have completely forgotten how much all those people mattered to us, how they helped us reach where we are.
As ungrateful as we can get, we go out of our way to look for new people. We keep searching for that bond, that warmth that our best friends and family had for us, in the hearts of total strangers. Not once do we ever think about enlivening the love that sculpted our past relationships.
Sometimes our ego comes in the way. Sometimes it’s merely their inability to be physically present around us.
While there is nothing wrong with meeting new people, we should really keep our heart open for people that care from across the world too. Because as we get older, our lives get busier. We are left with less friends and confidante by the passing day.
The reality is, that you and I both know that, that partner-in-crime friend, that confidante of a parent, that trouble-maker sibling, that inappropriate classmate, that gossip co-worker will always have a place in your heart. Distance of time or space came in the way and you lost touch. Now, all you have is their memories.
We think some people are lucky to spend a life-time with their loved ones right beside them. But some people are good keepers. They keep that connection alive no matter what comes in the way. Some people do not take anything for an excuse. They put their relationships above all else.
But, you know what? It’s better late than never. Why don’t you hit them up when you are done reading?
Don’t have their details? Why don’t you track them down & give them a haunting phone call just like you promised you would?
It’s gonna be worth it. I promise.
