Once again, hello people!!! It’s been months... haha... I was tied up with exams and stuffs that I couldn’t post anything up on my blogy. Here I am once again!!! With God’s grace, I passed my exams and I am doing my practicals these days. Well, let’s get straight to the point.. This post is a lil unusual than my previous two posts as I am not here with brand new stories.. That might be a huge letdown to my loyal readers.. (if I have any... haha) But I dont have enough time tonight to post a lengthy story anyway.. I don’t really know what is the title for this post... It’s very random that I couldn’t think of one... Maybe it’s all about what has been running in my mind last week...

Shall I call this the tidbits of life? Food for thought? Haha... I have no idea.. Anyway, maybe it’s something regarding friends.. Yeah.. FRIENDS.. This is not an ‘emo’ filled post or a post with the melancholic tone... So, dont be sad.. Take it as something to boost your friendship a level higher or something to rejoice reading... We have different friends with lots of differences.. I mean, every human being is different from one another.. The moment a baby is born on planet earth, the baby cries.. That’s the only similarity among all human beings.. Or were you laughing out loud when you were born? Haha.. Then you are unique!!! Apart from that, we are very different from one another as we grow up... Different environments, different surrounding, we grow up with different people and so on...



But the ‘verbindung’ in the german language or the ‘connection’ between one another occurs when we can accept the differences of other individuals... This beautiful bond among us is called FRIENDSHIP... It’s beyond physical and mental differences... You might be white, black, brown, yellow, green, red, blue or whatsoever... but you’re human and you have feelings in the first place... Hence, everyone needs friends in his or her life... I am not an exception.. I have a group of nice friends too and Im glad about it.. I wouldn’t say it’s very big as no man is an island... I am trying to make a diverse group of friends... I’ve always wanted friends from all walks of life... Maybe from different races, different genders and so on.. So whoever reading this post, you’re welcomed with open arms to be my friend.. hahaha... Lets put any difference that exists between us aside and lets make a beautiful bond called friendship... Okay.. so... Accepting the differences is the important rule..



THE PROBLEM...




Jeng Jeng Jeng!!!






Well, that heading gives a tense or serious tone to this post... So, I’ll write it in a different way to avoid problems... LOL... Let’s put it this way... I am gonna write an open letter to a person.. It can be one person or maybe two or maybe more.. That’s not the point... Just take what’s good in it and apply it in your life!!! Then your friendship will be colourful!!! But I seriously feel like expressing the content of this letter to a person or maybe two or maybe more... Haha... Now I realize why do people label me ‘secretive’... So here’s how the open letter sounds like... Ignore the ‘jeng jeng jeng’ part... I got it from my senior, Alex.. LOL.. Hope he doesnt see this...



The Open Letter
:)

Dear Friend,

Why have you changed so much? Is there a problem between me and you? We can discuss if we have any.. It’s been awkward to mix around like this even though we dont say it out.. There’s a tense tone in our friendship and I doubt how long will it last... The only moments we r close is when it comes to the ‘enjoying’ part... Why is it that we can get along so good during these moments but not during tough times or times when we r suppose to work... Besides, why cant you listen when people tell you something but you expect them to listen to you all the time... Are you the ‘mr know everything’ guy? Well, come on.. Appreciate what others tell you too... It’s important to speak up but it’s equally important to give others the opportunity to speak and listen to them... That forms a healthy and good friendship...




I mean.. lets not be too formal... But still, how will it ever work if you assume that you know every single thing and do all the talking.. I’ve tolerated too many times my dear buddy... It’s lame... Haha.. How will a person feel when u tell him ‘i dont know’ after a long narration... LOL...Imagine... Sometimes I wish I can tell you all this straight forward but I dont want unwanted riffs to occur at this particular moment... So, I hope that you’ll understand all this one day.. one sunny day,.. LOL... I mean you have been a good friend all this while... But why do you behave a lil odd at times... Sometimes, you behave very well to those who r not close to you but... to the ones who r close to you like me.. it’s total different... You listen and agree to some but why not me? Haha...

Besides, you dont really appreciate people who r close to you when they achieve something or they know something... You just rubbish it off... But when someone else does something... you’ll come up to me and say like.. “Hey know what?? Mr X is very talented in this in that.. or in this” It’s okay to express the awesomeness of a person sometimes.. but when I tell u things like “oh I’ve done that before”... you’ll be like... “No, u know what he has even done bla bla bla” just to make that person’s sound greater than me... Why do you always have to be like that??... I mean you dont need to appreciate my actions or speech but at the same time you dont have the rights to pull me down... Do you always expect your friends to be one step below you? Thats lame.. Total LAMEness... and when I tell you about me or someone I know or some facts I know... you’ll be like... “oh, thats ordinary what” haha.. sometime it’s funny when I think about it but sometimes it’s real IRRITATING!! Got that my friend? That’s the reason I dont tell you much things these days... I feel there is no point telling u... The only thing that u receive well from me are my jokes.. LOL... Learn to appreciate the knowledge of others as well... Encourage your friends readers!!!




You have to correct your attitude in order to make things proper... Im not saying im 100 percent perfect but your attitude is seriously AWKWARD! In one word... And one more thing is that at times... you give lame facts which r not true and you make it sound so true.. But when someone gets to know that it’s not true and confronts you again... you’ll give a lame smile... Then how would anyone on earth trust you... Someone has given you the wrong concept that you need to keep giving out facts with confidence so that the world accepts ur ‘intelligence’.. do give your facts only when they r FACTS!! I know you’re clever but once again... No man is an ISLAND!!!

Yours sincerely...


Well I’ve never really commented about a person or maybe two or maybe more this long on my blog... This is the first time because I hope someday you’ll read this and things will be okay between both of us my friend... For those of you reading this post... learn to appreciate your friend and value them for that you’ll only know their worth once they are far away from you... I hope that this post is an eye opener to all of us... Well thats all from me this time around my dear blogy... I came up with this one with an intention.. To make it an eye opener for every single reader.. Friendship is one of the greatest blessings in our life... Let’s make it a positive one... Never pull your friends down guys!! Dont mistake me... This is not suppose to be an ‘emo’ post or whatsoever... It’s for all of us who’d like to boost our friendship with one another!!! Support your friends and talk as much as crap you want!!! Haha... Thats called having fun with friends!!! XD See ya soon guys!!!

COMING SOON: Blog posts in the GERMAN language!!! =)



Peace out ;-)

dear friend,
Sometimes,people don't share the same feelings and thoughts despite being friends for along time. Its a bitter truth that not everybody is the way u want them to be or expect them to be. sometimes people might have hidden agenda or simply take you for granted. no relationship in life is a smooth one. you have to learn to accept it and move on. when you start to take into account of everything that bugs you,you might end up losing peace of mind.sometimes,you just need to learn to brush things aside and overlook things. im sure your friendship means a lot to your other friend. take it easy. A simple friend thinks the friendship is over when you have a misunderstanding. A real friend knows that it's not a friendship until after you've had a misunderstanding. if the contents of the your letter are not bothering,then ,you can overlook this 'letter' of mine. TC =)
yours sincerely,

I know we have differences from one another... but accepting is just one part of it.. tolerating is another... I accepted that person but at times, I can't tolerate him/her... anyway, thanks for the advice and I don't think so there is a need for me to take him/her to an extend of writing an open letter like this one after this... ANd yeah, I did overlook.. :) thanks for the reply Datshana... =)
