I Must Have Been Wrong For Loving My Friends Unconditionally

Anonymous Anonymous in Your Story on 29 September, 2017

I am an introvert.

I feel lonely because I don’t have even a single friend. Don’t get me wrong, I do have friends but they just never seem to have the time for me. I really don’t know when this will get better.

There was a time when they would talk to me everyday. They spoke to me when they felt low, they spoke to me when they needed to laugh or share their dirty secrets. Most of them felt like I just know how to solve their problems.

I would feel happy when they were happy because of me. I felt like I was adding good karma points to my life but now? Now I the same words make me feel horrible.

A friend who once called me a magician left me because they thought I helped people unconditionally. I am not upset that they left me, but I am upset with myself because I haven’t been able to change myself. The other friends, don’t have the time to call back or reply to a text message.

I am dying to hear their voice, I am dying to talk to them. Yes, I know expectations always hurt but I still expect. I don’t feel it’s the wrong thing to do. Since I feel it’s my right to at least get to talk to my friends once in 6 months.

Friends, I can understand that you are busy achieving your dreams, I can understand that you are like Bunny from Yeh Jawani hai Deewani but do you feel the same way when you see my name in your WhatsApp Message? I feel the same for you all. My heartbeat increases when I see a simple 2 letter word ‘Hi’ from any of you. I really love you all.

I know you have other priorities and that’s fine but you need to make time for the people who love you. It’s sad that I have lost my place in your life.

I don’t want anyone to feel low, but yes, I request each and every one to please be in touch with every friend that respects you. After all, friends are the second family.
