Here’s what Maggie’s liner says:
*Before we begin, I’ve noticed some of you readers have been confused as to who wrote what, This isn’t a guest post. All the content is written by me (Divi), where I write my opinion regarding their statements. *
Umm yes, this is true and I agree hundred percent.
I know a kid in school who’s always alone, who doesn’t have friends around, and before in our lower grades, I heard he used to be bullied a lot. I didn’t know a lot then, so naturally, I never reported that.
On the last day of ninth grade, which was recently, I was clicking pictures with my group of friends. The feeling was incomparable. I’d been with them since kindergarten, and 11 years later, I saw my best friends with me. I felt safe. Then I saw that kid, he was near a tree, he was sitting alone amidst a huge crowd.
See I’m not a saintly person. I didn’t go and talk to him, I just walked away like I didn’t care. But I tried to feel like he did. When so many teenagers are with their friends and having their own thing going on, and you’re all alone, how would you feel?
My friends always keep checking on me, and they genuinely congratulate me or console me caringly. It’s hard to imagine when someone so special is just, absent, in your life. That kid had absolutely no friends, there would be nobody to console him when he got hit, there would be nobody to congratulate him on getting good grades.
We all need friends. They’d crack jokes to make you laugh, they would never make you feel alone and their sole mission is to see you happy. Outside my family, I don’t think anyone else checks up on me more than my friends do. When I was sick, they messaged everyday, and gave their support. They also did make fun of me on my birthday though.
Seeing lone people just somehow shatters me so much, because there is absolutely no one for them to talk to. There’s no one for them to speak their mind or just have a companion to walk home.
There are so many people like that, who don’t have a healthy group of friends. They’re all around us. Take that step forward and talk to them. I once did that to a new girl at school, and now she’s relatively better, she became a good friend of mine. It felt so good, not only for her, but for me too. It’s just this sort of satisfaction I cannot explain.
Go on and be someone’s cause of euphoria today :-D
