Of late, I have been a regular reader on WordPress. I joined WordPress to indulge in my long lost literary world and improving my writing skills (which is certainly on). But to my surprise, I am spending most of the time on WordPress reading varied realms of articles from a variety of bloggers. Whenever I start penning down my thoughts, my curious mind automatically shifts to the ‘tags’ to get the insights of good minds. The more I hunt for posts, more I get ‘lost’ in them.
When I say ‘good minds’, I am not referring to well worded articles, interesting topics or striking the right chords in writing arena. I mean to read different opinions, overwhelmed feelings, life adventures and much more. Relationships, lifestyle choices and soul searching experiences grab my attention. I get more inclined when I read these topics which rubs the emotional side of the brain than browsing knowledge reservoirs of the mind.
However, in the process of interpreting these posts I have realised that mostly everyone is looking out for one important facet of life – good, trustworthy and deep relationships. I am not restricting it to strong chords between couples, but someone who is really close to your senses – a loyal friend, an ardent confidante or a peachy well wisher. The relation could be anything from couples, friends, cousins, sisters.. anyone.
Be it on WordPress, books or even our daily conversations. Somewhere deep within, we humans are in constant search to find that one special bond, that one supporting shoulder, that one bright smile. How wonderful would it be if we had one true-blue with whom we can pour our hearts out, share our mind space and connect to the soul. Wow!! In this mad world, where our minds are constantly bewildered by lawless pursuit of life, having a forever friend is a delight!
But then, why don’t we get one? If almost everyone wants that special someone, why are we left alone? I read this article a couple of days ago, where a dear blogger was sadly venting her issues and wished if someone would be there for her. In a separate incident, my colleague is being little ‘lonely’ these days and I really know that she needs a supportive cushion. Yes, there are plenty of us, who would boast of having real gems in our lives, but are we not reluctant at times?
Are we shying away to open our hearts, are we not confident enough to share our inner thoughts or are we staying so aloof in our lives, that we don’t have any special companion? I fail to completely understand. If everyone is searching for the same bond, why don’t we help each other? Why don’t we understand? Why? Do we hide ourselves even when we want to reveal? Is trust a main issue?
Hmmmmmmmmm… This thought really captures my mind. If you and I want a good friend to be on our side, why dont we get along? Let me have this thought in my mind this weekend. While hitting my weekend chores, let me seep in to these thoughts, let me…
