“I used to think of all the billions of people in the world, and of all those people, how was I going to meet the right ones? The right ones to be my friends, the right one to be my husband. Now I just believe you meet the people you’re supposed to meet.” – Diane Frolov and Andrew Schneider
Something bubbles and jumps within you when you witness a friend find happiness. The only word I can think of right now is joy.
If I have only have one quality, it’d be “can be trusted.” It is an honor when one of my close friends tell me something they hold dearly because they trust me to keep it to myself and of course I will. The thing is, I believe trust to be very important. Sure, you have have a lot of friends, you know, but if those friends don’t trust you, then…? I mean, the point of having a friend is to have someone you can trust with your feelings and thoughts. (I’m talking about this in the sense that the definition of friend has changed over time.)
I really do wish that people, everyone, can be happy at least at one point in their lives.
However…(don’t say you didn’t see that coming)
There are people who take happiness for granted. Oh yes, I still don’t understand many things that I should treasure. It took me a long time to understand the privilege of having two loving parents and that not everyone has this happiness.
But it’s really interesting to me when I meet people that, in this situation, don’t treasure the presence of their parents. My cousin’s parents divorced and he now lives with this stepmother and while they do have problems, he doesn’t understand how lucky he is to have his dad and stepmother caring for him. Some people may argue that their parents don’t really love them, but if they call you and fund your education or life and take care of your needs, I really do think that some part of them love you.
Better treasure it or else it’ll hurt so much more when you lose it.
