I called 10 times or more than that and sent him 25 plus SMS to convince a 'Friend'. ( I know I have done very much for a friend only).
I fought with my one of good friends four months back because of some misunderstanding. I have written a line to him in a mail which meant something else and he took it something else. Kind of miscommunication took place again.
Without informing or giving the reason he stopped talking to me. I realized it after three days when he wasn't picking up my calls and didn't reply to my SMS. He got completely disconnected with me from a virtual life so-called social media and real life as well.
I did, I apologized, I admitted my mistakes, I gave me every bit to save that friendship. But nothing fruitful came out.
But After a few days of insisting, "he messaged me by himself, "I will talk to you by myself. Since it's been four months there is no call, no message, no any chit chat, no any coffee talk, no any gathering.
I always got a reason behind not calling," I was busy”.
Okay, I agree. Everyone is busy who's not?
Remember, people make time for whom they want to make time for. We text, call, reply and want to be connected to the people we want to talk to.
If you don’t get a response from someone it’s because they have deliberately chosen not to give a response to you. That actually means they are done with you.
Accept that as soon as possible.
The best thing to do here is to let them fall away from your life. Let them get rid of your life and accept the lessons that they’ve taught you about who you are and what you want in life.
But never waste your precious time without admitting your mistakes and faults.
Probably I would never ever do now for anyone in the future. I would never get cheated by anyone by their fake trustworthy words.
As with anything in this life, there are people who will try to take advantage of your good nature and behavior. There are people who will try to use your wealth of time. They will use your trust for their better life.
If you will ever do, be in limits. If you ever stuck in a situation of choosing a person or self-respect, trust me, if you don't want to regret, choose later one.
Because that person will never put you in such a situation. If you choose to that person that feeling molest you patchily at some moments because that person couldn't be the same as he was for you.
Self-esteem will be much better as a result because giving a priority for caring about own and family life is a matured thinking. No-one could beat you on a happy and satisfactory life if you are with your own decision.
Since that day, I have never gone such an extent to stop someone in my life, it doesn't mean I don't value relationships or friendships. It simply means I choose self-respect.
