Back in 6th grade, I met my best friend, she was new to the school and I didn’t have any best friends back then. We soon were made bench partners, sounds fun, doesn’t it? Well, the first day we realized we had the same looking ink pens, the same colour, same brand, twinning yea 😂
Two weeks in and we got into an argument about these pens. I thought our pens had been exchanged and she claimed that it wasn’t the case. I know it sounds really petty but for our 12-year-old selves back then, this was a pretty serious matter and we stopped talking to each other for quite a few days.
That time it was a huge deal for us and now, five years later we couldn’t stop laughing when we remembered this. We both don’t remember where those pens are, what happened to them or when we saw/used them last or even what they used to look like. The same pen because of which we didn’t talk to each other and now, it’s long forgotten and we still remain best friends even after not having seen each other in months.
The reason I’m sharing this is that when we remembered all this a few days ago, I realised how some things that bother and matter to you a lot right now, they might not matter to you at all after some time. This argument was too small and we were too young, we made up soon.
At a point in time, something might have been very much important to you but soon it might not even matter to you, but it can cause some damage to you’re friendship by the time you realize this.
Arguments and misunderstandings happen to everyone, but if you stay and work them out, you might later realize that you now have a memory that you can always remember and it’ll make you laugh when you realise just how petty and stupid it was like we do now.
Some people let their ego get in between and don’t talk to each other, it might be something a bit bigger than this, an argument or a misunderstanding but the best thing to do is talk it out with each other. Its outcome might even surprise you.
Friendship is far more precious to let it end over petty things, even if you don’t think it’s petty now, you might later realize just how stupid it was. So always remember,
And any relation is far too precious to let your ego get in between.
Have you ever found yourself in a situation like this when you later understood how stupid an argument was? What are your thoughts on this topic? Let me know!
Until next time,
