I can say that not everyone is a perfect friend, but that's what makes everyone perfect friends for others.
I'm saying this because I'm very unsure if I was that helpful of a friend. Please don't look at this as an attention-grabbing entry, and I assure that it's not my intention to do so.
As much as I want to become a great friend to others, I can be kind of a jerk without me realizing it at that moment and realized it a few seconds after the incident happens.
I admit that I'm not a good friend, but I do know this. Even if I hadn't experienced feelings or obstacles what others felt or faced, I can't ignore others just because I myself did not encounter such a problem. I'd rather help and try to put myself in my friends' shoes to comfort them than to leave them with the problem. I would sacrifice even my project so I can help my friends or anyone else who needed help. I'd really sacrifice even my happy times to comfort those who needed more happiness than I. I don't know... it just feels wrong that I'm happy at one point and the others aren't. It just feels unfair...
I admit that I'm not an expert of love. To be honest, I've never been in love before... a crush is already a limit for me at this time, so I choose not to be in a relationship (as of now anyway). I may not be in a relationship, but I do know things: A relationship is not just about having the same interests and the like; it's about commitment between partners that they have for each other and a preparation stage to test their compatibility with one another to be one in the future. A relationship is about mutuality, which means you two satisfy to each others' needs in all aspects. A relationship is about sharing your life with someone with a ready mind and heart, not out of desperation or pressure.
If I think about being in a relationship, I'd rather go for the need to be in one than want to be in one.
Recently, I've been seeing couples that start having relationships even in high school. I feel it isn't right for me... Yes I feel pressured too, whenever I see couples pass by. But what did I say to myself?
"I'm just happy I've learned and can take care of things by myself (for now xD). There will come a time that I might find someone who's right for me... but the time is not now. I have more important things in life than just searching desperately for someone who I 'want', and end up with someone who I don't like."
.... Blunt, huh? Yeahp, I can be that, but it doesn't mean that I'm heartless. That quote can also be applied to peers:
"I'm blessed to have friends who actually care for me, not just as an artist, but as a person. Why must I feel down and depressed when I have my real friends by my side? Why must I pry in the past when I'm surrounded by people who look out for me and bring happiness in the present? A mere friend just comes and goes, but a real friend remains, even during the hardest times."
And here's a quote I wish to share:
"Friendship is about standing by each other, in good times and in bad... about creating bridges to people outside our comfort zone... to help people understand others better... to make people feel that they belong... to make people feel that there are those who care for them... to make people feel that they are not alone as they thought to be... to make people realize that we're not as different as we think we are... to let people know that we're always by each other's side when we need a shoulder to lean on...
The word 'friendship' is a stronger word than we realize."
And a special message to everyone:
"No matter how deep the darkness your heart bears, don't let it take over you. Follow your light, and your heart will bear less burden."
I might have sounded like a robot, but that's all I can think of for now. I don't know if I made sense here... and I'm not saying this out of being uncouth... I just want to let it out...
