For all my friends, whether close or casual, just because. Everyone will go through some hard times at some point. Life isn’t easy.
Did you know that the people that are the strongest are usually the most sensitive? Did you know that the people who exhibit the most kindness are the first to get mistreated? Did you know the ones who take care of others all the time are usually the ones who need it the most? Did you know the three hardest things to say are I love you, I’m sorry, and I need help?
Sometimes just because a person looks happy, you have to look past their smile to see how much pain they may be in. To all my friends who are going through some issues right now—let’s start an intention avalanche. We all need positive intentions right now. If I don’t see your name, I’ll understand. May I ask my friends wherever you might be, to kindly copy and paste this status for one hour to give a moment of support to all of those who have family problems, health struggles, job issues, worries of any kind and just needs to know that someone cares. Do it for all of us, for nobody is immune. I hope to see this on the walls of all my friends just for moral support. I know some will!
I did it for a friend and you can too
We know very well how it is when your birthday comes. Facebook sends a notification to all our online friends to let them know you’ve officially added a year in our bio data.
Then our timeline and inbox gets bombarded with messages from families, friends, acquaintances, and even strangers all throughout the day. It all feels so good to be remembered in our special day.
As for me, I am not up for how lengthy and cheesy or how well-versed a greeting is. What I’m up to is the person behind that. I think its supposed to be all about what we’ve been through together. Its about how much you’ve helped me grow as a better person, for saving me when I felt like I needed mending, for being there when I needed someone to, for sparing judgment on my past life, for not letting go no matter how complicated I got, for accepting everything about me, for putting up with my lethal combo of being frank and weird, for missing each other, for sending nonsensical messages, for keeping my secrets and making me laugh, for helping me get through with life and its parts, for our crazy antics and spontaneous plans, for making me realize how wonderful life still can be even after seeing its dark side, for the arguments we apologized for, for believing in me when I start to doubt, and for caring genuinely. When I look back to all those moments I shared in the past year with you, no message can be at par.
However, I still do have expectations, especially for the people whom I’ve invested so much of myself. I expect them to remember because if they won’t, I’ll be devastated. I hate being forgotten, especially by someone I care about a lot.
