In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends. – Martin Luther King Jr.
We hardly bother about what our enemies say to us! It is quite obvious that we have the greatest impact of our favorite people on us. All that matters to us the most is what the people we love say or do to us.
It is essential to understand that no one can pose an effect on us until and unless we have tied the threads of our hearts to them. We aren’t affected by the words or actions of our enemies.
We usually treat our enemies as our competitors and thus, they do not possess our heart. All that they do is to possess our minds. Thus, in the end, all that matters is how did we defeat them.
We usually pay no attention to their words or actions outside the competition for we do not have expectations from them either! Our enemies can even speak foul words to us, and we would still not get bothered about it.
This is because we have absolutely zero expectations from them, and being our enemies, we are well prepared about the fact that we cannot expect anything good or positive from them by any chance.
However, all that tears us apart is the silence of our friends. Yes, it is essential to understand that it is none other than the silence of our friends that make all the difference.
We must have the potential to understand that the silence of our friends matters a lot to us. This is because our friends remain close to our hearts, and thus, we tend to have higher expectations from them.
We start to assume that even if the entire world turns upside down, we would still have our friends by our side. We set our minds in such a way that we know that it is none other than our friends who are dearest to us.
We can bear anything and everything, but we cannot let our friends go off without being bothered about our emotions.
We know that our friends are our most valued possessions, and thus, it hurts us badly when we do not have them beside us. We expect our friends to be there for us, and speak up on our behalf.
However, it hurts us the worst when they stay silent. Their silence matters to us a lot for we can no way bear their silence and accept that they are not talking to us. We can deal even if they scold us for our wrong, but we can never bear with their ignorance.
