Amicos per vita: Friends for life?

September 11, 2011 § 6 Comments

While i was growing up, i had this notion that things are meant to be forever. They’ll stay the way they are, exactly the way they were at that point of time.
Even now as i write this, i haven’t grown up. And the notion hasn’t changed much, as far as relationships go at least.

If i meet someone and i hang out with them, honestly having fun in their company; i really think it’ll always remain that way. No matter how old you grow or how much you change, your perception of a person does not change unless something drastic happens between the two of you.

‘We’re not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic cords of memory will swell again when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.’
~Abraham Lincoln.

So if i am friends with someone and i can comfortably sip a cup of coffee with them, or chit-chat with them, or even tell them how i’d enjoyed this last book i read; i really consider it’ll stay like that. Well maybe not entirely, but atleast the basic bond i share with him/her will not go.
Unless again, this person goes on pronouncing senseless judgements upon me, and calls me names on my face, and does not agree to listen to my side of the story. At all.
Anyone’d be hurt. So am i.

Whats wrong with that?

  • Do you also realise that she’d be in love with you too? Despite all the crazy, impulsive, idiotic things you do. Despite all the times you call her ‘unreal’, ‘impractical’ and ‘biased’. And a bitch!
    That she doesn’t know how to not love you either. You’re in ‘her’ system too. 😀

    We don’t have to change friends if We understand that friends change!

    Its ok to find change in relationships, infact constant relationships would make you bore….!!! 🙂

    “Forever” is not, for me, something to wait is something you should be able to live everyday !!!
    There is a fine line you have drawn, clearly, between friendship and companionship !
    straight, smart and to the point !
