Life has changed a lot now; it has taken a completely different turn. I am having an aversion with this mature and sober aspect of my personality, that busy-bee side of me. I am a fresh graduate and have recently started my job just a few months ago. It’s the time of my life where I have no time to think and relax. I’ve turned into an industrious man now and that has made me realize the true meanings of life.
It’s 1am and I was feeling fidgety after yet another busy and usual day at work. I went to the lounge and searched my movie collection. I was having an urge of watching some old movie of my teenage. I wanted to recall my past days, the days I called my LIFE. I searched but the very next moment I felt tired and went to make tea. I made it and sat on sofa, thinking deeply. I was badly missing my old days today. I don’t know why but this time which I am spending now has filled emptiness in me. As I grew I realized your relationship becomes less pure and sincere with people. Though I wasn’t meeting my school, college and university friends like before now, but they were still there deep inside me. That was the time where there was no materialism. We used to have a day of laughter from dawn till dusk. Those cherishing moments at hang-outs and making fun of each other! We only knew how to laugh! That bizarre connection of bona fides! That relationship of NO CAUSE! The kind of bond in which we were ready to do anything for each other, never listened a word against any of our friend behind’em. That sincerity has lost somewhere. Now I meet every person for a cause. Now my relationship is based on give and take only with everyone. I used to worry for hang-out plans before and now “earning bread” was what I was living for. This is something which makes one forget everything; the purpose of living, loving and caring for the closed ones etc. I was finding myself so restless in this robotic life without emotions and love, instead only work. I was fed up with my usual routine of getting up in the morning, reaching for work in time, worked till dusk, return home, make food and prepare myself for the next day. My job was very satisfactory thankfully. I hadn’t to run for searching a job like every youngster and I was working in a multi-national company which only few are blessed with. People dream of a life I was living and I myself was very much thankful for what I have because I know I don’t deserve all this. My God is so humble on me that he gave me much more than I wished and dreamed for. What I missing was altruistic relationships. I was still unable to cop myself in this era of my life where I was ready to accept being responsible but not meaningful relationships. Every individual meets you for some cause and you meet every individual for some reason. Was working so selfish that it turned an individual into a robot with no emotions at all? Was money so cruel that it took life from people who run to earn it? I believe money is being earned to enjoy life and fulfilling the needs. What kind of money is it that it took smile from my face despite having all the necessities of life?
Suddenly I felt my hands wet. There were tears falling from my face and I didn’t feel it. My mug was still in my hand and tea became cold now that it was unable to take anymore and my movie collection was still spread on floor. I looked at the wall-clock and was shocked to see that it was 6am now. I was sitting there for 5 hours without moving an inch. I didn’t realize that I wasn’t in this world for 5 hours and now I am back there.
I stood up, went to my room, picked up my cell-phone made a group chat and texted all of my friends.
“Hey guys! Long time no see! How are you all and what’s up these days? Missing ya all!”
Then again I was preparing myself for the job now. I was ready to go back to that robotic life again.
MORAL: Friends are the most precious gift that God give us but true friendship is hard to find. Life is like a kaleidoscope in which every phase is different from the other. What sticks together always are only memories. Because in future, no matter how hard the time may be, these will be the time you look back and will still smile. Live your life at the fullest and value those people who never listen a word against you behind your back. Those with whom you share laughter and smiles! Family is something you get from your blood. Friends are those with whom you share no blood relations but they run in your blood.
