Life is not a straight path between birth and death. It is like a silk thread twisted umpteen times and is full of twists and turns, ups and downs. We all aspire for something to have in our lives.
A few might get what they want and the most of them, like me, are still finding what exactly makes them get it what they want. But still the journey continues, no matter you get or don’t get what you wanted.
Life is the best mentor one can ever get. Only thing is that you should be willing to take cues from the life and live it to the fullest.
Today, I wanted to share things that most of us would have aspired at different stages of my life and what one can learn from them. Rather, what life teaches us from them as our best friend!
@ 5 years – wanted to play with as many toys. Wanted to break them, remove the screws or levers and see what’s inside
@ 10 years – wanted to become a cricket player. Very possessive of your friends, things, toys and many more
@ 15 years – Wanted to have a gang of 15 to 20 friends. Hang out and enjoy as much as one can
@ 20 years – a couple of good friends for life and an aspiring career
@ 25 years – a goal in life to achieve and few friends whom you consider them as an integral part of your life
(Stopped @ 25 as I can’t comment on years after that without me experiencing it)
As a 5 year old child, each of us is pure at heart. We had no idea of rich, poor, bad, good, beautiful, ugly, caste, religion. The best part of the life every one of us lived but we had no idea what we were experiencing then.
As a 10 year old kid, you are extremely possessive. You feel offended for silly things, fight over petty issues and consider everyone in your class as your best friend. You get to have the first taste of a feeling called “friendship”.
As a 15 year old boy, you wanted to have a group with whom you share common interests. You wanted to enjoy as if there is no tomorrow. You are proud of what you are, how you are and support your friends to the greatest extent. Sometimes, more than your family!
As a 20 year old teen, you wanted to experience the world as you come out of your college studies. You wanted to have a couple of friends, say 3 to 5, with whom you can share everything. They are your moral supporters and you feel free to share things that you even cant share with your family members (Yes, it is common. Don’t you think?). You feel stronger, more confident, refreshing when you talk to them.
As a 25 year old man, you set a goal, be it personal or professional. And one goal that everyone aspires is to have at least one friend for life time. You may have by then a friend or two with whom you feel you are the real “You”. You feel they are the integral part of your life and with whom you life is incomplete.
This is something what everyone, irrespective of what they are, wanted to have in their life. At least, one!
So, my dear friends…
As a friend, you are one of the most important persons in your friend’s life. Don’t ever try to mislead, cheat, or deceive your friends.
