JUST BEFORE YOU SAY GOODBYE
If there is one specific lesson life has taught me, it is the simple fact that the closer we get to people, the easier it becomes to lose them.
i would explain why in a but, but before then ask yourself this question, “Have i really had any reason to fight with a person whom i often see and seldom chat or talk with?” I guess 98.9% would come out of their question thinking fitted cap saying a no with so much confidence and vigor.
The closer a friend becomes, the more this friend knows your weakness and forgets that why you became friends in the first place is because he or she appreciated your strengths.
People are so quick to forget that no human is perfect and no matter how beautiful a woman is facially, there would always be a clause somewhere around her body. It could even be a character defect which comes right from inside the mind.
A friend once told me about a mentor of his. Before he got closer to the man, he appreciated his good works and his zeal, passion and commitment to blessing life’s and creating lasting legacies. When he got closer to the man, he started complaining about how brutal and selfish he is.
The funny part of the story is that everything he complained about, he shouldn’t have noticed in the first place because they directly did not involve him.
MY ADVISE: When you get closer to a person is, “have a reason and stick closely to that reason”. If you intend to make the person one step ahead of friendship, then you must be ready to accept the person with his or her flaws.
Just before you say goodbye, always remember the good side of a person and ask yourself this question, “Is saying goodbye worth it after comparing this persons strength with his or her weakness?”
Even if saying goodbye is worth it, learn to close the door gently while you say the goodbye. Never say goodbye banging the door on a friend that once made you smile and happy.
The world would be a better place if we all remember that we are all different and unique in our own way.
