Sometimes, you’ve just got to take the leap. Just give it a shot. Deal with whatever the outcome might be, because at the end of the day, you can still tell yourself you tried.
I’ve been preaching a lot of positivity lately, and I figured there are still certain things I want to just sort out. Just for my mental satisfaction. And maybe, just this once, I can not think of the consequences, and just contact this person. I mean, I’m growing up and I want some closure. So, today I went seeking for closure.
There’s this friend of mine who I’ve known since seventh grade. We didn’t quite get along initially, but then we did- and we became best of friends. There would be moments in school, where all our friends were talking and we’d just have eye contact and understand what the other is trying to convey.
He left school in ninth grade, but we still kept in touch. We’d meet often and he would always bring me something. Usually, chocolates. Everytime. So, fast forward a few years later, and we’re sixteen. Still good friends, until things just happened and we stopped talking.
Things here, is something I don’t want to elaborate on. I’m leaving it up to your imagination. Go ahead. Bottom line being, we stopped talking-meeting and just drifted apart. He tried, oh he tried for months to help salvage our friendship. I was just too ignorant and arrogant then. It ended.
That was about three years ago, and three years ago, I was somebody who you wouldn’t want to befriend. I completely cut off from the social world for quite sometime, and I was very moody, top it off with an emotional mess. Do we get the picture?
We did interact a little in those three years, we met once too but that was all. It just stopped all over again. It felt weird, wanting to talk to him yet feeling so distant. So I let it go.
Lately though, let’s say… About 10 months ago I’ve grown. I’ve changed and started talking to more people, opening up, and just almost becoming my old self again. Now I, don’t have many friends, I recently even let go of this one toxic relationship with a so called best friend of mine.
Either way, for couple of weeks now, I’ve been wanting to talk to him. I wanted to give it everything I’ve got one last time, before I either completely let go, or hold on. So I contacted him today, I just did it and guess what!! We decided to meet tomorrow. I feel triumphed.
I hope everything works out fine and I just say everything that’s been left unsaid. All the best to me! And to you, fellow humans,take the risk, be it big or small. Think of all the possible consequences, think of whether you’re capable of handling the outcome. If you are, just dive right into it. Life is too short to hold grudges, and not salvage relationships that truly mean something to you.
