What should one do when the immense efforts you put in don’t show the desired effect? Why are we human’s so complicated? Why are we inclined towards the criticism? Why don’t we value what we have? I know your reaction on reading this. Must be ‘Why does she ask so many questions??’
It’s sometimes so easy to explain things to others but jab you are in that situation that same advice seems waste. Right? We think no one can understand what we are feeling so no advice will help us. Been there, done that, eh? But it’s really irritating if someone doesn’t listen to you, even after constant and almost desperate efforts. Yes you would have ignored advice of others too but koi aur kare toh pinch hota hai naa?! But I think I have out-done myself this time, I tried with all my might to make someone see the logic. But the mentos moment i awaited never came. Instead I ended up feeling close to what Farah Khan must have felt after Tees Maar Khan released. Yep, imagine!
Now if a friend is on the edge of a valley, hell bent on jumping, even after you actually drag them from there to stop them with no result, you just know the jump is inevitable. I mean even Salman Khan saves that girl from falling off the cliff with the help of his slipper because she wants to be saved, warna even that Relaxo chappals are useless (watch this ad if you already haven’t, its total salmanness!). So what would I do? I’ll jump too or I’ll be there to catch when you fall or I’ll be there to heal you if you get hurt. I’ll be there. That’s not the point. Point being you can help only if someone wants to be helped. Even now after realising this I know if I get one chance, I’ll do it all over again. Because this friendship doesn’t let me quit. But I am scared of being pushed away 😦 😦
Is there any hard and fast rule on how much one can try? Something like a hard limit? Beyond which I’ll be endangering the friendship? Does it make me a intruding, nosy friend? Will this make a friend not share things with me?
PS: I have not been paid to promote mentos, Relaxo or Tees Maar Khan and I ain’t even suing them. Yup, i possess a dariya dil 😛
