Ever Wonder...

...how the very people whom we trust the most are the ones who cause us the greatest amount of pain and hurt, directly or indirectly, intentionally or unintentionally? Ever wonder why? It's pretty simple, really. It's because those are the people whom we allow to do so. Obviously. Someone can hurt you only after you give them the right to do so. They can betray your trust only after you place your trust in them. They can cause you pain only after you expose your open wounds to them.

...how we all have these friends with whom we fight, argue, squabble every time we talk to them, but the instant they stop speaking to us, we're totally miserable, and so are they?

...how we have some friends with whom we never fight, never argue, always agree to disagree gracefully? Some people suggest that such relationships are rather superficial, but I don't. I think such friendships exist, are meaningful, and are very necessary to maintain a fine balance of things.

...how hearing a close friend's voice after a long while can make you smile straight from the heart and cry at the same time, just because you feel overwhelmed with the sheer volume of the emotions you feel?

...how we figure out how much someone means to us only after spending some time away from them? When somebody is constantly around and is being taken for granted, we never really see the good in that person, their best side, or how great they make us feel.

Thats true, I firmly believe
To trust someone is the first step towards betrayal. To love someone is the first step to hate. To expect is the first step to get hurt.

I prefer to be practical, not succumbing to emotions :-) avoid the first step to avoid the last.
