Eric and Jennifer!
Eric was a fun loving guy who had made his presence known in the place he was working.
Jennifer was gem of a girl who had just stepped into her professional path by joining her first Job.
He was a very busy guy who would mingle with every other person in the office.
She would always be in a dilemma as to with whom she can speak or not. After lot of repeated conversations with Eric, she knew that he would be the go to guy on whom she can count on in this new world!
As Eric was a Senior and Jennifer was a Junior in same team, things went on very well. For almost a year, they could barely speak in office hours. But as time passed, there came a point where two strangers were no more strangers but turned out to be very best of friends.
(When there is right mixture of thoughts and emotions between any two individuals then they eventually turn out to be best of friends irrespective of how many times you speak or not. Then along with it, its share of expectations, disappointments will follow too..)
But, because of various reasons it always so happened that he would speak with every other person in the office except for that of Jennifer.
(This is what Jennifer started to feel, back of her mind as the year was unfolding itself)
For whole one year, she somehow felt that she was neglected and was not given the right kind of attention from Eric!
Finally, there came a day. Jennifer lost her control and said Eric, if this was the case and if he felt any kind of shame or hesitance in talking to her in front of everyone else in office, then please stop pretending of being a very good friend of her!
Eric was terrified with these words that Jennifer had just told him.
(He was never pretending of being her very good friend! But was actually one. He then realized though he was not pretending of being a good friend he might have terribly failed to showcase the same to her!)
It was at this moment! Eric realized what has happened none can change. But, what should happen next is definitely under his control and he can bring some change.
(He them immediately, left his ego aside of why should he even do it when he was not acting of being one but was really the one good friend of her and she misunderstood him. He went on accepted the fact that he might have missed showing it to her and went on to convince her)
He tried to convince Jennifer by talking it out to her! But, Jennifer was hurt and even after trying to forgive and give him another chance. It was getting difficult for her to get back to normal behavior with Eric
(for the very fact she didn’t want to get hurt again)
But, Eric didn’t give up and persistently spoke to Jennifer and finally convinced her. Then made it a point to never hurt Jennifer ever again. Thus, a very beautiful relationship of friendship between these two continued for ever after! 🙂
Moral: Never ever, at any given moment of time, take things lightly with a friend who you feel is truly valuable in your life! Whenever, you come across a situation where you feel that you think of parting your ways from the other. Think, if at all you wanted to part your ways, why two strangers ever choose to be friends?
It’s very difficult to find a true friendship!
Once you find it, no matter what adversities occur, try to sort it out, rectify your mistakes and for sure you will see things will get better and normal again!
To all my fellow bloggers and to all those who read through this entire article till this very end. Happy Friendship Day to you all. 🙂
