Life Is An Art

                                         Losing a Close Friend is Worse Than A Break up
Oh yeah...blah! blah! blah! I've heard this a million times and never for once had I believed it until when I had a similar experience.
I was losing two of my close friends at the same time. Shocking isn't it? It wasn't just shocking, it was terrifying.
I would say that close friends would just fall below the family grade line.
After your family members, close friends are another set of people who would love you earnestly and care for you just like themselves.
When I mean close friends, I mean true friends who really care about you.
Losing two friends at the same time was something I hadn't expected. I saw myself doing something I'd never done before; writing an essay to tell them how they mean to me.
The reason why most friendship break up is because both parties refuse to apologise. When everyone believe they're not at fault, no conflict can be resolved.
My old time close friend chatted me up on Facebook recently. He complained about we not getting in touch for a long time. We had been really close during our university days. After graduation, the usual happened. I tried to get in touch with him but after a while, I got tired and stopped calling.
I had a close friend I hadn't spoken to for a while now.
"Maryam, I'm very angry with you". One of my friends had told me this morning.
 His mother had been really sick and he had to travel home urgently.
I hadn't bothered to ask of his welfare and that of his mother until he accused me.
Sometimes, stuffs we do pushes loved ones away from us. Let's be the best of friends, care for others as ourselves, take away our pride, be the first to say 'hi' and apologise even when you think you're  not at fault.
Your loved one might love you with all of his/her heart but a friend will see your good characters, flaws, weaknesses, dirty secrets and still think you're amazing.
For this segment of 'Life is An Art', two short stories on "Best Friends" would be dedicated. It would be updated before the end of this week.
A drama series will be here to spice up your weekend. "The Stevens" is all about a new couple with lots of ups and down, what they face being married, the happy moments, sad moments, quarrels, jealousy, humuor and so on. It's comic and very hilarious.
Stay tuned as it's going to be launched this Saturday by God's grace.
Also, Cups of Coffee With Four is reviving back and you get to read lovely opinions from four amazing people.
As always, Life is an art. It is very beautiful and lovely. Although, behind those lovely designs are mistakes and errors. Life is not always the way we want it to be but it is our duty to make ourselves happy.
Remember that life is very short to be unhappy. So forgive quickly, love truly and never forget anything that made you smile!!!
