Friends for Me

Hi, human!

I don't think that friends come & go. Mine are always inside my heart - 88 LOVE LIFE Vol.2

     That phrase makes me take a minute and think. Do you have at least one childhood friend that is now becoming a total stranger to you? Because I do. 
     Few days ago, an old friend of mine texted me. It began with "Hi! Do you still remember me?" I stared at my phone for a long time before finally replied the text. It's not because I don't remember her. It just makes me realize that we all have one same problem regarding our relationship with our old friends. 
     Sometimes, when I met an old friend on the street, I'm eager to greet them. But then I took a second to think again. 'What if they don't remember me?' and that's the origin of the problem. When a friend becomes a stranger. It's okay, that's not your fault. Like what I said before, we actually have the same fear. When I want to approach my old friend, I'm afraid they don't recognize me. It doesn't matter if we were best friends before. They have new friends, I have new friends, and then done!
     But having new friends is something unavoidable. As time goes by, our circle of friends becomes bigger and bigger. From the stage when you can tell your friends about anything and anytime to the stage when you hesitate to even text your friends. Afraid that they might be busy and you could disturb them. But do you really forget about your old friend? I guess not. You just forget how close you are to each other. But the meaning of friends is not that superficial. They may not physically there on your side now, but they will always there in your heart.
     To all my friends, we may have our own business now. So I guess we already reached the stage when we can't meet each other every day. Or talk about anything together. So take care of yourself, and see you on top.

Will you take a moment, promise me this.
That you'll stand by me forever.

But if God forbid fate should step in,
and force us into a goodbye.

If you have children some day.

When they point to the pictures, please tell them my name.
Tell them how the crowds went wild.

Tell them how I hope they shine

Long live :) - @ariefmaulan

  7. Aahhh yes, I had this really sweety sweet bff in middle school, one day we fought over a fucking small thing (literally, we fought over 'she can't accompany me to canteen' lol) and I ignored her. and the next term, we got separated bcos different class, she has new friends, so do i. and I apologized to her so we can start things over...but...we just can't.
    ((that sounds so lebay tho but that's exactly what happened lol)) and until now, I still reminiscence my friendship with her:^) still friends in line and instagram...but we didn't say anything to each other stranger:^) the last time we chatted was in her birthday last year:^) I'm really sad everytime thinking about my bff forever, her. that's why I promised myself to not have a serious friendship/relationship or else when things got weird, It will fucks me up forever..
    btw, sorry for the long long comment lol><
    I wish you're the best with your friends x
