People

Some relationships are bound to fall apart. You know the signs, you see them, try to fix it, and in the end, it just was never meant to be. Is it for the best? You will never know. Only time will tell, I suppose.

My good friend of five years and I are no longer bound by the chains of friendship. It had been tumultuous year for both of us, marked by constant fights, misunderstandings, mean comments - the perfect recipe for a disaster. In a fit of anger, we say things we are bound to regret and by the time you realise it, you are too late to change the course of things.

It hits you really hard when the person you expect so much from lets you down. Understandable, but not completely unforgivable. If the only solution is to block people out of your lives over such issues, you probably will not be able to handle any relationship, be it personal or at work, with ease.

We both said things that should not have been said in the first place. I tried to make it up to her, I guess for now, she has called it quits.

As someone said, 'Shit Happens. That's life.'

It takes two hands to clap - if shit happens, and we make it, - it implies that both parties were instrumental in pushing in that direction.

However, I dont think all is lost. If that were the case, then the world would be a lonely place! But if people move on, make progress, and some of us also know it is not the end of the world.

Easier said than done, I know. But it takes immense strength and generosity to overlook theses human errors and accept it without malice. Even greater is the magnanimity to pick up the phone and say, 'Shit happens..So what! Lets meet up for coffee?"

I guess you are not one of them?

Every relationship needs working at. If you're married and say things to your spouse in a fit of anger, would you call the marriage quits? You can't block out everyone from your life because they said something they shouldn't have.
