Is Forever, Really Forever?

One line Story – #2

Departed forever from you, "Is forever, really forever?"

This one liner story struck my mind when one of my blogger friend thegenxtravels commented on my previous one line story and said “if forever, is really forever?”

Sometimes just one line is sufficient to spill out an entire story for you. That’s the amazing power words have in them.

So what’s your thought on this? “Can forever, really be forever?” 🙃

Yes? No? Please feel free to share your views in the comments section below.

Conflicts.

We all have conflicts with the one’s we love and care about the most!

Let’s first think why will this conflict ever occur?

Expectations!
It is the only reason because of which most of the conflicts occur nowadays.

Fine, we know these conflicts occur because of expectations. But, what happens later is important.

What do you do when you come across such conflicts?

Best thing to do at that time is. Give it a thought why did anything like that happened? Once you do that, make an honest attempt to speak clearly and openly with the person with whom you are having any conflict.

Eventually talking openly with the people you care and love eases out all the conflicts when you step in to talk 50% of the conflict is already solved and when you make an honest attempt to clear the conflict by having a thought to make the other person understand what you’re saying or vice versa. The conflict will for sure get resolved.

To keep it very simple and straight!

Let me explain with a short example. Consider there are 2 people by name Eric and Jennifer! They both are best of friends. They love to hang out with each other and have a very good bonding.

One fine day, Lets say.

Day 1: Eric fails meeting Jennifer’s expectation of wishing her on her Birthday for some reason!

Jennifer is now hurt that Eric missed wishing him on her Birthday!

Day 2: Now, Jennifer is waiting for Eric to realize it and convince her about it. But, Eric is stuck with some really unavoidable work because of which Eric is not able to contact Jennifer or talk her on her B’day and the very next day of her B’day!

If you understand, Jennifer is already deeply hurt. Conflict in her mind has already rooted too deep and she is completely involved into it.

Day 3: Eric meets Jennifer and greets her a belated birthday wishes! Explains Jennifer about the situation he was into. Because of which it was not possible for him to wish her on her B’day!

If you closely observe what just happened. All the conflicts that was running around in Jennifer’s mind disappeared because Eric made an attempt to talk with Jennifer of what exactly was the problem because of which he couldn’t meet her expectations!

Moral:

One should always try to understand each other point of view when your into conflicts and avoid getting into defensive mode. but, instead try understanding each others point of view.

Eventually, conflicts get resolved and happy time continues to flourish thereafter!

How many of you encounter such situations? Do you go out there and speak with one you have any conflicts? Is this how even you resolve your conflicts?

Please stop by and comments your thoughts on it! 🙂

Happy Reading! 🙂

 

Every Friend was once a Stranger!

This post is very close to me!

As this is something, I have experienced and felt it to be important for everyone else also to know and treasure the true essence of friendship!

Has anyone ever thought about this phenomenon, that every friend we have now was once only a stranger to us!?

Yes, when any person is a stranger, why do you think we talk to each other, laugh at each other, cry for each other and build this beautiful relationship called Friendship?

Basically, it’s because we tend to share a priceless bond which is truly unique between any two individuals! Isn’t it??

For an instance, let me speak about two friends Eric and Jennifer!

Eric was a person who was busy with every other aspect of his own life and Jennifer was truly gem of a person! who would always keep Eric as priority no matter what situation she was!

It’s almost been, more than a year they both have moved from being a Stranger! to a Very Best of Friends!

(Being a good friend is definitely not a simple thing to do right? Where there is friendship, there surely is expectations, disappointments and huge mix of feelings that rush through within any individuals who value this beautiful relationship of friendship!)

Eric and Jennifer both used to work in the same office. But, because of various reasons it always so happened that Eric would speak with every other person in the office except for that of Jennifer.

For whole one year, Jennifer faced this same negligence from Eric! Finally, one fine day Jennifer lost her control and said Eric, if this was the case and if he felt ashamed of talking with 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! Just like Jennifer even Eric had the same feelings for her as a very good friend! But, always failed to showcase the same at their workplace! (which was the reason Jennifer was hurt terribly) .

It was at this moment! Eric realized what mistake he was repeatedly doing and never rectified it.

The moment he understood it, Eric confessed about his mistakes and what he was doing all these days at workplace of neglecting her was wrong and he was guilty of it! He tried to convince Jennifer and asked to give one chance to rectify his mistakes! But, Jennifer was so hurt by Eric that she even after trying to forgive Eric and give him a second 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 lose hope and continued to speak with Jennifer explaining her how much he really valued her as a Very Good Friend of his and never pretended to be one!

After all that Eric said to Jennifer, she was finally convinced and Eric made it a point to never hurt Jennifer ever again. Thus, a very beautiful relationship of friendship between these two continued for their lifetime! 🙂

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! and be strangers again?

Then, Think!! If at all you wanted to part your ways, why two strangers ever chose to be friends?

It’s very difficult to find a true friendship in someone!

Once you find it, no matter what adversities occur among you’ll! Try to sort it out and rectify your mistakes and for sure things will get better and normal again!

It’s rightly said,
