Sometimes, you feel angry to a friend who hurt you. Simply, you feel misunderstood. But would never want your friends to understand where you are coming from because if they do it only means that they have experienced the kind of pain that you never wish to happen to anyone.
You still want them to believe in ideal things, a bright future and undying love. That preparing for the said future keeps them going for they serve as a balance and remind you of your old self. That once in your life, you have been too anxious of the future.
As a friend, remind them that no one is in control and whatever plans they have for the future will not turn out perfectly as they planned.
There would always be twists in life. And by that time, wish them to see the gift of living in the now.
Planning is good but should not lead to anxiety. The illusive future is beautiful. But nothing beats how the present takes a breath away.
True, it’s not about the plans but how you enjoy the journey, the people as you reach towards the future that you are hoping for.
You don’t live in the future. Don’t let it control you.
