you got the love

Sometimes it seems that the going is just too rough
And things go wrong no matter what I do
Now and then it seems that life is just too much
But You’ve got the love I need to see me through

– Florence & the Machine


I had an argument with one of my grade school friends the other day. In the course of the history of our friendship, we’ve had countless arguments already.  We’ve argued about taking the ride home, boy-teasing, the time, and whatever else petty things are not worth fighting over. One time we stopped talking for over a month and the other time I left her while we were on our way walking to somewhere.  We’ve argued so much that I can say our friendship has gone through the worst fire already and we can never be mad at each other permanently.  Don’t get me wrong, I am not a person who maintains love-hate relationships with a lot of people.  In fact, this is probably the only one. And because of that, I daresay I’m already sure this is one friendship that will last our entire life time.  My friend is always the aggressive one when it comes to arguments. I usually stick to short statements when I’m angry because I’ve learned my lesson a long time ago that you can never take back what you’ve already said. Anyway, so it happened that she said something that completely ticked me off.  I guess I picked the fight because I started the sarcasm. And my friend proceeded to drown me with a mouthful of words.  What was funny was that I was easily able to just let everything go even if I could have answered her back. When you really value a relationship, pride just doesn’t factor in anymore. I told her that we should just forget about everything and go to sleep. The next day, I woke up to a “let’s make up” album that made me start the day with a smile. I can never really stay mad at  you. hay.

Oh, my favorite argument we had was that time that I left her while we were on our way walking to somewhere. I got absolutely mad that time. But after about 10 minutes of walking as fast as I could while venting out my anger, I suddenly stopped, turned back, and there she was behind me.  We just smiled simultaneously, and laughed the whole thing off. Five seconds later, as if nothing happened and we were laughing our lungs out again. True friendship is such a hard thing to find nowadays. I’ve had a lot of frustrations with people because of expectations. It’s so hard not to expect a certain degree from your friends when you’d be more than willing to give that same degree.  Or when you’ve given so much yet you don’t feel like you deserve the little that you get back. But I guess sometimes it’s necessary to love more than the other person.  What was that saying, that love isn’t true, unless it hurts? I guess true love can’t demand fairness, after all. (this kills me though, being a Libra) But with that said, I thank God for the selfless love that only He can give. And my parents, who come close enough to that. :)
