“We are all connected to the great circle of life”-Mufasa-Lion King


circle of life
‘The sky is a perfect empty canvas,
offers clouds nonetheless,
They shift and drift and beg interpretation…
such is the nature of art’ Jeb Dickerson

My interpretation is that the clouds above are forming a circle.
A recollection about circle of life…….( Lion King Movie )
Mufasa: Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance. As king, you need to understand that balance and respect all the creatures, from the crawling ant to the leaping antelope.
Simba: But, Dad, don’t we eat the antelope?
Mufasa: Yes, Simba, but let me explain. When we die, our bodies become the grass, and the antelope eat the grass. And so we are all connected in the great Circle of Life.

One can Forgive but can one erase the bitterness ?

Forgive

When you forgive you don’t change the past but you do change the future.

Technically majority of us try to forgive, but 100 % of us forget that,we have forgiven, and somewhere the unpleasantness, haunts us for sometime, after all we are human beings !!

Some quotes…….

“Forgive other,not because thy deserve forgiveness,but because you deserve peace.” Jonathan Lockwood Huie

“It’s not an easy journey, to get to a place where you forgive people.But it is such a powerful place,because it frees you” Tyler Perry

Forgiveness releases the burden of a heavy heart Mathew 6:14-15

“Forgiveness is a funny thing. It warms the heart and cools the sting.” William Arthur Ward

“As long as you don’t forgive, who and whatever it is will occupy a rent-free space in your mind.” Isabelle Holland

When you forgive,you do not erase the memory.You simply choose to forgive to free yourself from the bitterness.

“NATURE IS PAINTING FOR US,DAY AFTER DAY,PICTURES OF INFINITE BEAUTY” John Ruskin

untitled (1 of 1)-63

I wonder if clouds ever look down on us and say: “Hey look.That one is shaped like an idiot”

Mother Nature is always wonderful to watch…….if only one has time,inclination and patience to watch.

Seriously talking, how many of us look up to watch the sky and the way clouds are formed at that particular moment ? Some even may say ….so what is so great ??

In the above photo,you would have noticed the clouds. See how they are arranged,with the lovely blue color background as if the Nature has used the brush strokes on the canvas.

Look up to the sky,watch the cloud formation or disintegration and enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature .Remember it is the greatest free show by Mother Nature !!

By cloud watching one can avoid boredom,since clouds are never exactly the same.

“People usually consider walking on water or in thin

air a miracle.

But I think the real miracle is not to

walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on

earth.

Every day we are engaged in a miracle which

we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds,

green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child — our

own two eyes. All is a miracle.”

Soulmate- True or Just an Illusion ?

Soulmate

“True love is finding your soulmate in your best friend”      Faye Hall

It’s a 3.9 minute read.

I am giving you Seven theories regarding the topic ‘SOULMATE’.
Which one as per you is more accurate and near to truth and a fact indeed ? Or you feel it’s unrealistic and falsehood and just bogus  and even fraud committed on the gulliable!!

Please guide me. I am as confused as anybody else.
1.Soulmate does not exist.It’s for professional POETS,who love to exaggerate the existence of Soulmate in their poetic style,laced with honey traces.
2.Soulmate exists.Yes.But only in ones dreams ! It’s impossible in this world to have a mirror image personality (100% ),scientifically !
3.Soulmates do exist because of synchronisation of the individual’s flaws.

“I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.” ―Lisa Kleypas

Source-thoughtcatalog.com

4.The following theory stresses the point that age is immaterial in soulmate relationship.

“A soulmate is not necessarily a lover or your life partner. A soulmate can be anyone in your life who has a great positive influence on you. Every single person that we deem to be “significant” truly is exactly that, for their vibrational essence is blending with ours and together we are creating a unique energy. It is believed that the soul radiates all about the physical body, what some refer to as an aura. When you connect with another person spiritually and become completely open and trusting with that individual, your two souls begin to flow together. Should such a deep bond to be formed, it is said you have found your soulmate. We are all joined in an ancient and eternal union with humanity that cut across all barriers of time, convention, philosophy and definition. When you are blessed with a soulmate, you have arrived at that most sacred place: home. This is a place so sacred that you open up completely to your soulmate. A soulmate can be a guru, a parent, a friend or your lover”

credits Kurian’s Soul-mate

 

5. “Someday,someone will walk into your life and make you realize,why it never worked out with any one else” Anonymous

The above quote gives, one some confidence,but One is not sure how long to wait,say 1 year,10 years,30 years,50 years or till death. Waiting for the soulmate

6.Twin Flames

Twin flames is defined as the mirror image of each other .

It is said twin flames have one soul divided into two bodies.

Some say, twin flames description is exclusively limited to romantic relationship unlike soul mates.

Even they go to the extent of telling that Twin flames have physical,mental, spiritual and emotional connections.

“People who are meant to be together will always find their way back to each other.They might take detours in life,but they are never lost.” Christina Silverio

7. Finally you have another theory which stresses that you just sit where you belong and your soulmate reaches you at the time,when you are ready.

And in this situation one is not sure what time  one is said to be ready !

You are not supposed to go out and find Love.Love will find you when you are ready. Suzy Kassem

Why online friendship can fail ?

Why online freindship can fail ?

“life is a balance of holding and letting go”   Rumi

It is a common phenomenon that we are making friendship with online buddies and some of the friendships can truly turn out to be the best example of the Wonderful relationship lasting for ages.

It is said true friendship even outlast Romantic relationships.

Friendship can continue to the next level  only when the friends honestly share their lives with each other,trust each other 100%, and can overcome the initial hesitations & suspicions,share their feelings both during happy or a depressing situations even forgive one another for any misunderstanding if at all any such thing  arises and be supportive all the time.

And we are also aware that majority are not going to be honest for various reasons.Many times one is not sure how much personal information can be shared.

And we also know  that online friendship with unknown friends is as good as entering a dangerous territory.

But still some venture into this territory and become the Besties.

Then one gets doubt whether online friendship can sustain or fail …..

And are there any reasons one  prefers to log out ?

I know,  one can give hundreds of reasons,but my one and the only reason being one of the parties or both parties not making enough efforts to sustain the friendship ( As Rumi’s quote above says ),a kind of give & take.

“Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive”. Elbert Hubbard

Life Under pressure

“If the problem can be solved why worry? 

If the problem cannot be solved worrying will do you no good.” 

Santideva.

Why you think there is a constant pressure on your life ?

Is it possible to let the steam out and lead a better  peaceful and contended  life ?

What are all the ways you think you are getting pressure even on your routine day-to-day life ? Let us discuss.

Family pressure

You want to do something you like but the family members advising you otherwise.You have two choices,either go ahead and do what you wanted to do or listen to your family.

The emotional tactic adopted by family members is crucial in influencing your thoughts.

Solution– Since you are grown up ,you can take your own well-meant decisions.

I feel emotional pressure by the family members is a kind of  ‘blackmail’.

Social pressure

It is defined as the influence that is exerted on a person or groups.It can be argument,persuasion and conformity and demands.

Solution- Develop self confidence and mingle with people who accept you as you are.  ( Like minded )

Peer Pressure

Peer pressure is the direct influence on people by peers, or the effect on an individual who gets encouraged to follow their peers by changing their attitudes, values or behaviors to conform to those of the influencing group or individual.

You will fall prey to peer pressure because you want to fit in .The peer can be your friend,classmate or colleague.

Solution– Be bold,think of the consequences,say a polite ‘thank you’ and be selective.

Our own tendencies

Author Gretchen Rubin has built a model called Four Tendencies Framework namely

1.Upholders.

2.Questioners.

3.Obligers.

4.Rebels.

She says that the four tendencies are responsible as to why we act and why we don’t act.

These tendencies can create pressure on oneself.

Solution– Change your tendencies.As simple as that.

You can even take the quiz of Gretchen Rubin here to know what personality you belong and how much pressure you are facing in your life.Click the link

May 31 st World ‘No-Tobacco Day’

Smoking

“Smoking helps you lose weight … one lung at a time!”

 

Every year, on May 31, WHO and partners around the world celebrate World No-Tobacco  Day, dedicated to highlight the health risks associated with the consumption of tobacco and promote effective policies to reduce consumption.

The tobacco epidemic is one of the biggest public health threats the world has ever faced, killing more than 7 million people a year. More than 6 million of those deaths are the result of direct tobacco use while around 890 000 are the result of non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke.

Smoking

Thousands stop smoking every year-   by dying

As you notice,all the three person are enjoying smoking,and on the left side one can see the notice stuck ( local language ), ironically telling that the area is prohibited from smoking and offenders will be punished !!

Time for some humor

“I know that every cigarette I smoke takes five minutes off my life, but it takes ten minutes to smoke it… that’s a five-minute net gain!”    Ed Byrne

“Giving up smoking is the easiest thing in the world.I know because I’ve done it thousands of times”      Mark Twain

Anger is one letter short of Danger

Anger

You will not be punished for your anger,you will be punished by your anger                                                                                  Buddha                                                                                          

Anger is defined as “a string feeling of annoyance,displeasure or hostility.”

Holding on to Anger is like drinking poison and expecting the other person to die. Buddha

I am not  here giving  the various reasons as to why one becomes angry or the types of anger.

All that I wish is to follow the following quote whenever  you become angry.

“Anger is like a ball of fire,

but if you swallow it,

It’s sweeter than Honey.”

Tired

tired ?

There are two types of “tired”,I suppose.One is a dire need of Sleep,the other is dire need of Peace

One is ‘physical tiredness’ & and the other is ‘mental tiredness’.

If it is ‘Physical tiredness’ …easy to recover.Just take good rest.

But if the tiredness is because of Mental stress,how are you going to recover ?

Can you give mental peace a chance ? Is it possible ?

It’s easier said than done.

But time is the greatest healer.That is what they say.

Are we not  just finding an escape route just by uttering this ??

Peep or Peek ??

Peeping

It’s fun to peek into other people’s world & see how they go about doing things.                         ‘Norah Jones’

In the above photo not just one,but two people are seemed to be curious.

Kids being curious I can understand.Children learn things only by being curious.

And adults peeping ?

May be it is a kind of Thrill & human trait to be ‘curious’ about what others are up to !! And  can one can take it as a norm ?

But do you enjoy doing this ?

The habit of peeping into somebody’s affair….can one express as ‘disgusting’ or just ignore it ?

Probably it brings,gossips with toppings and some excitement resulting in rumors !

Are we not obsessed with the lives of others ?

It is said this habit is more prevalent in women.

Or you think it’s because idle brain,which is the culprit.And one derives demonic pleasure.

Nothing wrong being inquisitive ,after all we descended from monkeys

Being inquisitive is OK if it relates to our well-being,but unfortunately we tend to be inquisitive for wrong reasons.

And we become extremely happy for checking others problems,rather than taking care of our own problems!

“Most of our problems will be solved ,if we focus on what is happening in our life rather than peeping into other’s life”   Misbah Abu Obeida Khan

And coming to the English Language…which word is correct to use ? Peek or Peep ?

Love is not complicated, people are

These days…relationship means…                                                                                                 Any where without you is better than any where with you

How individual lives are changing ,relationships are thrown into the dust bin,people forgetting the meaning and value & sacredness of ‘LOVE’,

Thanks to addiction to social media & smart phones !

Relationships are harder now!

“Conversations became texting,

Arguments became phone calls,

Feelings became subliminal messages,

Sex became easy,

The word ‘love’ is used out of context.,

Insecurities became a way of thinking,

Getting jealous became a habit,

Trust is hard to come by,

Being hurt became natural.

Leaving became the only option,

Sad but true,

So if you have something…that is worth it,..don’t take it for granted,

Fight for it,don’t let it go”       pinterest

Summary

Be selfish,thanks to the inventions. indulge in your likings,Drink till you drop dead,fight without any reason,Ego is your life,jealousy is your partner, Greedy is your nature,Killing innocents is your taste,care not anybody,you owe the happiness you deserve,forget about dieting & exercises which are all money-making machines,,cheating is your mantra,money is everything and enjoy dying your own death,you owe nothing to anybody!

Is this the lesson modern-day life style teaching us ? Is this the meaning of advancement in human life ? Is this what all about relationships ?

And what about ethics,values,respect,responsibilities ,family relationship ?

A hair-raising tale

This is 3.6 minute read and it’s about Health.

No no no….I am not telling that kind of hair-raising tale.

My tale is really related to true hair.

The patient should be made to understand that he or she must take charge of his/her own life.Don’t take your body to the doctor as if he were the repair shop.  ‘Quntin Regestein’

All of us know that the persons well-being and health depends on our personal hygiene.

But then most of us are not aware of many aspects of personal hygiene,Most of us are not even aware of the dirtiest parts of the human body.Here I am giving the areas of human body which requires good hygiene

Starting from head to toe

1.Scalp.2.Eyelashes.3.Ears.4..Mouth5.Tongue.6.Nasal cavity .7.Armpits 8.Belly button.9.Anus. 10.Groinfolds & creases.12.Hands.13.Underneath part of foreskin of penis.14.Vagina15.feet.16.Breast folds.

Though some  of us are aware the importance of hygiene of all these areas,there is another part of the body,which is totally forgotten.

This is back of the body along with the Butt crack ( Ass crack ),medically known as Inter gluteal Cleft or Natal Cleft.

Butt crack is nothing but the groove between buttocks.

Why Hygiene of Butt crack important ?

This area is prone to a condition medically known as Pilonidal Sinus,a small hole or tunnel in the skin.

Source-Ranapiles Hospital.com

image source-ranapileshospital

But crack being a pit,naturally source of collection of dirt, and it is in the form of hairs,favouring the germs multiplication.

How hair  can accumulate ?

Hairs start  accumulates mainly in the form of shred hairs.These hairs broken off by the friction against clothing.On sitting the buttocks takes the weight of the body and improper posture & sedentary life style results in shredding of the hairs.The accumulated hair invade the skin and cause a small lump initially.

What are the predisposing causes ?

With increase amount of time people spend in sitting,bad designs of chairs,obesity,drivers sitting for long hours and driving the vehicle,,hairy bodies etc predisposes to this condition.

Earlier this condition was more common among jeep riders, was nick named           ‘Jeep Bottom ‘

From where do the shredded hairs come from ?

1.The back of the body ( hairy body ),2. buttocks. 3.Use of toilet paper contributing to the hair entangled in fecal matter being swept into the cleft,by to & fro movements.

Ok.What happens now ?

Ingrowth of Of shredded hairs into the skin causing a small lump initially,which starts discharging foul-smelling fluid along with severe pain and one may find difficult to even sit..Of course I am not going further into the details.

How to prevent ?

1.Wash the area(pit)with soap & water daily.2.Reduce the pressure and be gently while washing this area,this is to prevent further shredding of hair.3.If you have a sedentary life style,try to walk in between.4.If you are obese nothing like reducing the weight.5. wear loose cloths.6.Use the properly designed chairs.and & 7.Most importantly remove the unwanted hair.

The gift Of Friendship

It’s 3.3 minute read.

Don’t you agree with me that True friendship is difficult since finding a true friend is the hardest.

” A friend is some one who understands your past,believe in your future….accepts you to-day the way you are “. Unknown

We may not realize the value of friendship until the time it is given when it is badly needed,so we have to cultivate and cherish the friendship .

Make aware to your friends how much they mean to you and how well they contribute to your happiness from your routine boring life.

Don’t ask me how to pick up a true friend or how to know,that the other person can be a good and even a true friend.

This is a difficult subject and can be discussed on another day.

The following quote is my feeling ,whenever one interacts with one’s true friends.

Friendship is a treasured gift,and every time I talk with you I feel as if I’m getting richer and richer “. Unknown

Friends can even become Besties.

True friendship is ‘Magical’ !!

“Friendship is not about whom you have known the longest,it’s about who walked into your life and said “I’m here for you” and proved it.  Unknown

The true friend helps me being a counselor in times of distress ,

Can be my confidant when the situation demands,most importantly gives all the strength I need when I am the weakest at some point of time of my life.

Now you will ask me…What is the secret of sustaining this friendship ??

Certain things come to my mind,which can further the bond.

1. Be frank.Accept the drawbacks or short fall either of you may possess.
No body is perfect in this world and everybody has some story to tell and as a true friend you are willing to listen.Provide the much-needed leaning shoulder.Respect the individuality.Even if situation demands call spade a spade and explain the realities.Never thrust your opinions.When you tell the truth let the other person accept this rather than doubting and vice versa.

2. Develop the principle of ‘forget and forgive’ since we know we are never free of committing the mistakes and it’s human to do mistakes.

3.Try to recollect the fun moments or joyous moments you both had while spending time together or enjoying the jokes during your chat times.

4.Share the happiness together.

The happiness ,one can feel only when one is able to share with the other.

Remember you can never enjoy happiness all alone.

Thank you my friends for patiently reading.

Now please share your personal experience on ‘Gift of Friendship’ be on-line or off-line.

It is such a waste, when people are alienated (friends, relatives, wife & husband,Couples or business partners etc.) from each other for days, months or even years,….all over some misunderstanding…that could have been sorted out sooner or even one of the parties had shown more Humility or Understanding.

Lie & Life go together !

 

Half truth

I always tell the truth. Even when I lie.
Al Pacino

Every body lies .Yes even You. That is the truth.

Can you keep your Right hand on your heart and say you never lie ?

We lie even to ourselves !! Our world is full of liars!!

Parents to their children,children to their parents,Friend to another friend,Husband to wife vice versa,Lovers to each other,superior to subordinate and subordinate to superior.People lie to doctors,to lawyers,to relatives,you name it,at every stage one is lying to others depending on the circumstances.

The day is incomplete  if you don’t lie !

And what about Surveys ,the Researchers undertake  to know the pulse of the people?

Are they getting the truthful  response ?

How about our dependence  on Google for A  to Z queries ? Are you getting the accurate reply?

Then why on the Earth you expect others to be Honest ??

Is this not the best example of ‘Double Standard’ ?

Nicholas Sparks says lie is a part of living.

“Because everybody lies, It’s part of living in society.

Don’t get me wrong-I think it’s necessary.

The last thing anyone wants is to live in a society where total honesty prevails.

Can you imagine the conversations?

You’re short and fat, one person might say, and the other might answer, I know.

But you smell bad, It just wouldn’t work. So people lie by omission all the time.

People will tell you most of the story…and I’ve learned that the part they neglect to tell you is often the most important part.

People hide the truth because they’re afraid.” -Jo       Nicholas Sparks

Even the ‘sex’ is not spared.

Everybody lies about sex. People lie during sex. If it weren’t for lies, there’d be no sex.    Jerry Seinfeld

Why everybody lies ?
Lying is not only a defense mechanism; it’s also a coping mechanism and a survival
technique.      Monica Raymund
Another reason given is..
“The truth is always a disappointment,which is why everybody
lies”.      FrederickBeigbeder
Now coming to difference between lying and deceptionn…..
Lying is a form of Deception…
Deception however does not always involve lying.

The swear word ‘F’ in Hollywood Movies

As an Indian I always wondered why most of the Hollywood movies/TV serials have F* word in most of the dialogues.

Check this out

Wikipedia gives us the list of movies and also total number of times the word f* used. (from 1978 to 2018 )

List of Films that most frequently use the word’Fuck’

It’s a taboo here in India to even utter just ‘F’

As I checked the  following  quora link,I realized the word F*** can have different meanings depending on the circumstance,apart from sexual connotations !

Why is the word F*** used so many times in English Movies,eventhough,it doesn’t make any sense sometimes ?

Please share your thoughts.

This is how I wish to live in my next life.

“In my next life I want to live my life backwards.

You start out dead and get that out of the way.

Then you wake up in an old people’s home feeling better every day.

You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, and then when you start work, you get a gold watch and a party on your first day.

You work for 40 years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement.

You party, drink alcohol, and are generally promiscuous, then you are ready for high school.

You then go to primary school, you become a kid, you play. You have no responsibilities, you become a baby until you are born.

And then you spend your last 9 months floating in luxurious spa-like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters every day and then Voila! You finish off as an orgasm!”

An incredible way to look at GOD!!!

When GOD solves our problems, we have faith in HIS abilities.

When GOD doesn’t solve our problems HE has faith in our abilities.

God’s accuracy may be observed in the hatching of eggs . . .
-those of the canary in 14 days;-those of the barnyard hen in 21 days;
-eggs of ducks and geese in 28 days;
-those of the mallard in 35 days;
-The eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days.

(Notice, they are all divisible by seven, the number of days in a week!)

God’s wisdom is seen in the making of an elephant. . . .

-The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction.

Soar High

soar high

The wings of Hope carry us,soaring high above the driving winds of Life Ana Jacob

We all know that Life is not a fairytale that ends Happily ever after.

Life is composed of ups and downs.

There are several situations where we plan to the precision but when our wish is not coming true, we as humans get devastated.

And in some situations just reverse-what ever you wished can happen to your surprise.

“Life has many ways of testing a persons’ will.either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once Paulo Coelho

Every day your life keeps you challenging at the drop of a hat ! But remember not to allow these challenges to put you down.

Never make comparisons.You don’t know the difficulties faced by the other person before he became successful.

“You aren’t going to find anybody that’s going to be successful without making a sacrifice and without perseverance.” Lou Holtz

Make best use of life,take everything that is offered to you ,because you know pretty well at the end something good is going to happen.

“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

If you want to soar high in the life,you have to give up the things and people that weigh you down. Rashida Rowe quotes

Friendship vs Love…which triumps ?

It’s 2.2 minute read

“Sometimes,in life there really are bonds formed that can never be broken.

Sometimes you really can find that one person who will stand by you no matter what.

May be you will find it in a spouse and celebrate it with your dream wedding.

But there’s also the chance that the person you can count on for a life time, the person who knows you sometimes better than you know yourself, is the same person who’s been standing beside you all along”.      Bride wars

Let us see who triumphs at the end.

LOVE

L is the 12 th letter of alphabets

O is the 15 th letter of alphabets

V is the 22 nd letter of alphabets

E is the 05 th  letter  of alphabets

Total of Love is = 54.

FRIENDSHIP

F is the 06 th letter of alphabets

R is the 18 th letter of alphabets

I is the 09 th letter of alphabets

E is the 05 th letter of alphabets

N is the 14 th letter of alphabets

D is the 04 th letter of alphabets

S is the 19 th letter of alphabets

H is the 08 th letter of alphabets

I is the   09 th letter of alphabets

P is the 16 th letter of alphabets

Total of Friendship is = 108

Exactly twice of 54

So the FRIENDSHIP is twice the value of LOVE.

Do you agree ??

Now time for some fun

One day Love met Friendship.Love asked,why did you exist when I already exist?

Friendship replied..to put a smile where you’ve left tears.

And

“There are friends,there is family,And then there are friends that become family.”

Can you survive loneliness ? ?

Friendship

Great friendship enhances the quality of life.

Deep and lasting friendships don’t  just happen.They require focus,energy,patience,and skill to form and maintain.

Good friends will enhance your journey through life in more ways than you can imagine.

Invest in a few. You don’t need a lot. This is one of those cases when quality is more important than quantity.

Miracle

Both of them were uncertain; both of them were trying as much as they could; both of them would doubt themselves, would progress and recede. But they would both keep trying, because they trusted the other, and because the other person was the only other person who ever be worth such hardships, such difficulties, such insecurities and exposure. ‘Hanya Yanagihara’

Do you believe in , that true friendship is possible in the real life ??

Wasn’t friendship its own miracle,the finding of another person who made the entire lonely world seem somehow less lonely

Hanya Yanagihara

Moving together  and interacting with our  friends in our circle ( offline ) ….at least we know each other by face,by real name,our habits,our nature,our jobs,our commitments etc.etc. and it’s an altogether different, in online friendship.

What about online friendship that too with an unknown person ?

what is your experience ??

I always wonder how these unknown online friends who know nothing of the other,but still keep in touch with each other as if they are the long-lost friends and they are also aware that they are separated by thousands of miles in this beautiful world….I don’t know what makes these two to gel so well  !!

I even read somewhere that in one such case,the friendship continued even  beyond 10 yrs !!

You never regret for making such a strong bond over the time with friends especially unknown….irrespective of the age,background,looks,status,liabilities,their individual responsibilities…….

Just read these beautiful quotes regarding’friendship’ by Hanya Yanagihara

Friendship is the most underrated relationship in our lives. It remains the one relation not bound by law, blood, or money — but an unspoken agreement of love.

Hanya Yanagihara

Why wasn’t friendship as good as a relationship? Why wasn’t it even better? It was two people who remained together, day after day, bound not by sex or physical attraction or money or children or property, but only by the shared agreement to keep going, the mutual dedication to a union that could never be codified.

Hanya Yanagihara

You won’t understand what I mean now, but someday you will: the only trick of friendship, I think, is to find people who are better than you are—not smarter, not cooler, but kinder, and more generous, and more forgiving—and then to appreciate them for what they can teach you, and to try to listen to them when they tell you something about yourself, no matter how bad—or good—it might be, and to trust them, which is the hardest thing of all. But the best, as well.
