Let me put it in a way that we all can understand. The world does not revolve around you. It does not revolve around me. It does not revolve around any one of us. The fact that I do not reply your message online simply means that I’m not there. Not that I’m ignoring you. It’s just that you have to realize that you don’t pay me enough for me to magically appear when you want me to.
In fact…come to think of it, you don’t pay me. So I think I rather take my chances beyond the screen to do what I need to do to survive and make ends meet with my own life because I have one and I would very much like to maintain some of the good things that I can call mine.
I realize that a lot of what I just said may be a little hard for you to swollow, but at the end of it, you have to learn that some things in life don’t come because you want it to. No, that’s never the way it works. It may work in the world you’re accustomed to, but for the rest of us who live out here in world where the gears turn, needful things come before our whims and fancies.
Yes it doesn’t seem fair. Yes, it doesn’t seem right. Then again, what are you going to do? Waste time feeling bad about it? Waste more time ranting on and on about how it should be the way you expect it to? Waste more time being so meticulous about everything in between that you don’t see the beauty of the bigger picture?
That’s the thing about all of this. When did it become all about the nitty gritty details of how a friend should be? This isn’t some grade school playground here. This isn’t a world where I have to be follow your rules of being a friend even if you follow your own rules in treating me as one. This is a world where we all walk our own paths in life, where the lines of friendship is drawn simply because of the parrallel roads we thread on. This is a world where the best friendships are built on the fact that it didn’t been to be built at all. They just work.
At the end of it, I can’t teach you to be human. I can’t tell you every single fine line that life has to offer. That is something that you have to learn for yourself. That is something you got to work through yourself. What I can tell you is this, the rule of life is simple. Live it your way, leave out everything else that is expendable and negotiable, even friendship and love.
The rest will come to you. They always do.
