Just love

Is friendship really underrated? They say that we all come into this world for a reason, and that the bonds we share with people around us are also for reasons. People come into our lives and we are a part of others lives, all for some reasons. Things we don’t know or realize immediately, but sometimes eventually we figure out these reasons, other times we help each other out in sub conscious ways and not even realize. Somebody once advised me, never to block out any person that comes into my life, girl/guy, friend/ sibling, whatever it is, I should just leave space for them to come into my life. Since each person we come across has some role to play in our lives, even strangers.
Sometimes you also come across people, with whom you click instantly, as if you have known each other for ages. They say, its coz your souls shared a deep bond in your past lives, probably as lovers, siblings, parent-child, etc. So if you come to think of it at a higher level, love is just love, whether it be for your sibling or for your lover, or for your friend, it cant be compared. So then why is it that friendship is always underrated, why are friends always looking for more? Isn’t the love we share as friends good enough for our lifetime. Also shouldn’t we always be welcoming people into our lives without having a purpose in mind. Why does every relation need a destination, and why cant the destination stop at friendship. Why must one always fret over it, why can’t we be happy with the way it is. Why must the bond with lovers be overrated and the bond with friends be underrated? Isn’t love just love, why does it need to be segregated?



They always said that life is simple as kids , but when I was a kid I never understood that theory. Nothing was ever simple, starting from choosing the right people to be around, to working on your skills and talents. Childhood was fun, obviously, but it was equally tasking, molding yourself, fitting in to the world around you. Then why do they say that things are simple back then. We have fun even now as adults. We have our own share of work time and play time. As children we think that adults can do whatever they like, while we have to follow the rules. It’s only when we grow up we realize how false that is. As we are growing up we start to inculcate responsibilities within us. We start with being responsible for our own selves; responsible for staying out of trouble, responsible for focusing on the right things, responsible for our future and what’s important to us. Then we are responsible for our siblings, taking care of them, keeping them out of harm, caring for their feelings. As we grow even older we start to take responsibility for our relationships, that we develop with our friends and cousins. After a while we we feel responsible for our parents, and the rest of our family and friends, then for our work, and so on. Then there comes a point when we feel so responsible for everything and everyone else that we almost forget to be responsible for our selves….Do we need to start all over again and make things more simple?
