When you have frictions or prolonged strife with a person do you always wish them the worst?
Well, Yes, I do! At most more than half the time. It’s satisfying to wish them evil after all they annoyed me so why not! I’m sure you do the same too even if sometimes.
So yesterday I reconciled with a friend after prolonged malice, we reflected on everything that happened, what led to what and the side effects. It’s so funny that he even confessed to unfollowing me on Instagram. He said he’s been meaning to follow back but he’s not sure how I will feel.
Well, guess what! I wasn’t angry, I understood him not just because I am capable of doing the same but because I know how prickly a reminder of someone who did you dirty can be… I like to call it ‘A Reminder as Prickly as Hell’
The feeling is hell! Especially on social media, one glance at their picture and you wonder why the heck they are smiling. And then it begins to feel like their adrenaline grew to post so much of junks 😂😂… well, I don’t even hesitate to utilize my mute button on Whatsapp.

A Reminder as Prickly as Hell

It’s funny how we do the most when someone gets in our bad book especially the ones we care(d) about. How we begin to paint them! They suddenly look mundane in our eyes, it’s at such times their flaws get very visible…It’s at such times we wish the worst happens to them so that they come running back to us.
Why do we often crave reconciliation on a platter yet reluctant to move the motion?
Moving forward, if I am not talking to a person and I don’t feel in any of these ways I have written or even more, then they never meant a thing to me.  It’s the truth! our love gets wicked when the ones we care about presses hard on our toes, every reminder becomes as prickly as hell.

When I fall out with someone, I don’t wish them the worst. I unfollow them on all social media platforms, delete their phone numbers and delete every thought of them in my memory. I fell out with a friend last week and I have forgotten that somebody like him exists. I don’t know how I do it and it never ceases to amaze me. We were very close and I thought my life would grind to a halt if I stopped talking to him. I have siblings I have not spoken to in years and I deleted their numbers. My… Read more »
