Had a bad fall out?
Called them a bitch/scoundrel?
Think things will never be the same again?
Well, here’s something: It’s all up to you.
From here on, you get to decide whether to put an effort to make things alright or to let your friendship melt away into a battle of egos.
And trust me when I say this, losing a friend to the vicious thing that is ego is something you’ll regret later on when the relationship breaks beyond repair.
So here are a few reasons why you need to make up with someone you fought with:
You’re Good Friends
At least you used to be. And you can still have that.
The only thing stopping you is you.
Maybe it’s time to stop being a seven year old and act your own age for once.
You Know Them Too Well
Even though you don’t talk like you used to, you still know them as well as you knew them the last time you had a conversation. You still know everything about them, but you merely stand and watch them get hurt by another person. You could console them, but you had a fight, right?
You Miss Them
If you don’t already miss having them around, then there will come a time, alright.
The moments you spent with them won’t just wash away with your argument. They’ll become memories and come haunt you when you least expect it.
They Miss You
Although there is no way of knowing this, given you don’t even talk to them anymore, they do miss you because all the memories you have of them, contained them as well.
You aren’t alone in this process of missing them, they are right beside you, only visible; thanks to the wall you built yourself.
Do you even remember the reason why you fought in the first place?
Or did it just become one of those “They should talk first” kinds of things?
Dragging on baseless fights is one of the stupid things you can do as an adult.
To Err Is Human
Even if it is their fault, if you care about them, be the bigger person and end the fight.
Don’t just sit there waiting for an apology, without even letting them know what they are supposedly guilty of.
Take that one step and make it happen.
What are you waiting for?
