A letter to all my friends.

Dear Friends,

I have always been an introvert and you know it. I was never a person to go out and speak to anyone. If you think back, it was you who spoke to me first. I thank you for that.
I have all of you to thank for being in my life and making it a hell of a lot easier for me to take stupid decisions. Believe me I don't regret any of those decisions ;). You have been with me when I have fallen and you have been with me when I got up and to that I am ever grateful.
You might have been irked by some of the decisions I unwittingly have taken in my life. I know I have been very stubborn on some of the other decisions which some of you had cautioned me not to take. You might have judged me. But, I am grateful for you for sticking by me even after all that.
I will sincerely tell you that I have never been jealous of any of you. You are like my sisters and I have been always proud at any of your achievements. I may not show it, but believe me I am proud of you girls.
Each one of you is different and unique for me. I value your friendship more than you know.
I may have ignored you sometimes because I was going through some very heavy introspection (and those six months after November 2011, it was training where I had to work 7 days a week). I may have been mean to you sometimes but I have never stopped loving you. We may have had a few difference of opinions and I may have argued with you about shit that does not matter, because lets face it, shit happens. Nobody is perfect. Not me, not you.
We are all working now and some of you (just one I guess) have married. So all you other people, stop being little shitheads and pick my calls, or call me or ask me to meet you or just send a message occasionally. I know some of your lives revolve and rotate around your boyfriends. Some of you are lazy asses. Some of you have been sweet. But, all of you are too darn good for me to lose.
I know how stressful working in a corporate world is. I know how cloistered in your room wont help you de-stress. I remember all those times in college where we used to have enormous amount of fun together. I know you miss it too.
I really try very hard to be a friend to every one of you and failing miserably because it is a one sided effort.
You move out of Bangalore and you don't tell me, you change jobs and you don't tell me. What is with all the secrets people.
Well, I wrote this to tell you that from my side you are still my friends. I know it is difficult to make time in midst of this crazy, fast paced world. I just want you to know that I am here, if you want me, I am always here.

Regards,
Your sweetheart ;) :)

P.S: To Nish, Cheeky, Poo, Stef, Dee, Deeps.
P.P.S: I know I have left out a person's name in the list, FYI, she is a traitor and not my friend anymore. Hmph.

To all others: 
What do you think of the new blog look ? Like it ? Does it look very emo ?
I am having problems with the blog feed. Not getting a few blog updates. Anyone facing the same problem in blogger ?

  1. It's so difficult to be in a one-sided relationship...speaking from experience of course, it feels as though the love isn't reciprocated at times. But like you said, we're still always there when needed, not matter what. This post just reminds me of my current position with most of my friendships :)

    I like the new look! It's less emo and more classy looking.

  2. Hoi!!!
    This was straight from the heart. I could feel so!!
    and yes sometimes people do not get time between all this craziness and forget to tell u things on time. But they do love u too. On other cases, friendship becomes one sided.

    I liked ur P.P.S :P
    And ur blog makeover is nice....i love what u have written on the header! :D

  3. Its funny that you you say in the header doesn't reflect in this post. Its good actually :)

    Its always nice to have friends right? Its more nice to find out the traitor amongst them. Feels great infact!

    The new look is awesome but the links on the right in dark blue us not that clearly visible. Can it get a little lighter?

      Whatever I write here is about me and only me. I had this since the start of the blog in all my headers. I guess no one noticed it ;)

  4. I am afraid to say I might be among those who don't call their friends, but it's not because I have no time but because I forget. I forget every possible thing in the world. But my friends understand(sometimes) :P
    I love the new look of blog. :)

  11. I love this look of your blog, espeically the background image is fab. I am also one of those who doesn't find time to call up friends. I am not even online on any chat services and often people blame me for being so out of touch. :)
