Last night I spoke to a friend of mine on Facebook, her status message was very sad. I guess she wanted someone to talk to and she picked me. She wanted to cry because someone had broken her heart, that too knowingly. So I asked her about her status and we started talking about broken hearts, what saddened me was that she said this scenario wasn’t new to her, that even friends do that too, and that she’s getting used to it. I told her that it wasn’t good for her, after all, she should be taking care of herself. Her friends should be taking care of her too, and not take advantage. I told her not to go for every guy there is, I know it’s hard, especially when you’re single and lonely, I’ve been there, but you have to keep those self defense mechanisms up too. Preserve your self-esteem at all costs, that’s my advice. She was so numb she told me that there’s no emotion left in her. I told her to wait until it’s the right time. Sometimes, and I’ve learned this the hard way, it’s better to just wait before you jump onto the next ship that comes. My two cents as usual, what do you say? If you have words of encouragement for my friend, please write them in the comment field below and I’ll pass it on to her. We all need encouragement and support, even from total strangers!
