Once Upon A Time there was a girl named Sheetal who was very happy. She believed that being happy is something which gives you everything in life. Her life was good, full of people who loved her and respected her. Still she felt like something was missing in her life as the world she lived in was very different from that one which existed in typical fairytales. This world was full of people who had lots of ways to interact with each other, here distance did not matter for Friendship and relationships. But still many relationships lacked meaning and were just full of exterior shine. There was no transparency and the relationships were pretentious. The walls of distance were made less by technology and innovation but there were many walls put up in relationships. People felt a need to keep these walls, they did not want any one person to know everything about them so they kept a lot of things even from their best friends. And that is how relationships and life became complex.
Sheetal did not like this world but had no option to go anywhere else because this is where she was born and no matter how dysfunctional it was this was her home. She knew it that if she wanted her Fairytale she would have to achieve her happiness in this world itself. But like every other heroine in the story Sheetal had had her fair share of heartbreaks and so like everyone she had put up her own walls. She had lost faith in people and so she kept her concept of her Happily Ever After in her head. But she had always kept the hope alive that one day her life would change and till then she kept on believing.
One day in the midst of all the chaos that was happening Sheetal met someone a guy named Simba and she immediately hated him. She thought he was a pompous arse who only thought about himself. But gradually things changed and they became friends. Oops sorry if you thought something romantic was happening there was Romance but the most purest and the truest romance to ever exist in this world that of the Love between Two Friends. What started off as a casual Friendship bloomed into a Friendship for a lifetime. He challenged every belief she had but he also supported every crazy idea she presented. He loved her without expecting any change and taught her that people who love you truly don’t laugh at you for being broken but they put all your pieces back together, make you whole and love you the way you are. He was not related by blood to her but he became her veins because of which the blood flows in her system. Her life canvas was filled with colour because he was the palette of colours. He was the missing piece of the puzzle that was her life and he made things great for her.
Days passed and their friendship strengthened with time. They had created their world in the crazy world. Their world made them happy and kept them sane. They needed each other’s friendship more than anything else. But like every good story has a villain their had evil in it’s fate too. There were certain people in the girl’s life who were jealous and they tried to break her friendship with him. She kept on wondering why are they doing this to me? Their life is good, they have people who love them then why is my Friendship bothering them? This made her restless so immediately she called Simba and told him of everything. He told her that the only reason that they are doing this is because your happiness hurts them, makes them sad. She was surprised and she felt sad and hurt that the people who were close to me were sad because I was happy? This incident took a toll on her relationship with everyone as she was not sure whom to trust and whom to not. She felt betrayed and stupid as she thought there was some glitch in her which made her susceptible to such plots. She wanted to be alone. Her trust was completely broken. But in this dark time there was one person who kept the light shining in her life, one person who made sure she did not completely collapse, one person who nursed her back to the loving kind warm hearted girl that she was, one person who broke all the walls and made her heart beat again and that was Simba. She was very happy that he never left her and realized that the fault was not with her but with the others who had an issue with her happiness.Together they slayed the demons and the villains in their story. She became strong and decided that she would not let such people influence her thoughts of love and friendship. What is true love and friendship was defined for her by the man who stood by her through thick and thin and not by pretentious chameleons.
Simba was her Happily Ever After. He was not her Prince Charming but he added charm in her life. The love that they shared was platonic but the intimacy levels of their relationship were way higher than of those in a sexual relationship. They dint love each other as a couple but their hearts were of two halves beating together as one.
Yes I found my Fairytale in my best friend. A Happily Ever After is not a one in which a girl marries a guy and they live in their castle ruling over their Kingdom. Happily Ever After’s are stories with people who add meaning to your life by loving you the way you are. Happily Ever After’s are with those best friends who make your everyday happy,happier and happiest.
You friends are an eternal part of your life. No one understands you the way your friends do. No matter what happens these people will be there for you unconditionally. Never let go of them cuz a true friend lost causes damage as much as a person’s death does.
This post is dedicated to my best friend Ro and here are a few words which I would like to say about him
There are best friends and then there is this one 👫! My absolutely crazy and insane love 👦🏻! The one who ‘Always’ has my back and the one who supports me unconditionally irrespective of how crazy my endeavors are! And then when I feel a lil sad when life is not going the way it’s supposed to or when I feel the pace has become slow he silently packs something and sends me a reminder which makes me jump on my Happy 🚋 again!
Ro you’ve been in my life for about 2 years but they have been the most magical years of my life 💫!
Earlier people tried to break us apart and I kept wondering 🤔why are they so jealous of our friendship,don’t they have best friends too?Then I realised that they are not pure so they’ll never know a soul like you😇!
Ro what we share is so special that I don’t even share this kind of relationship with my boyfriend! You have nourished and nurtured my soul,taken crazy rides with me which only besties get a ticket for,you have supported me like a pillar the way a person’s parents do,scolded me and put me on the right path when I went astray like an elder brother,taught me life lessons like a teacher,been my tissue when I needed to wipe my tears,been that high five when I felt fiery joy and wanted to celebrate, the list goes on! As dysfunctional as life gets I know even in the craziest sense you will always be my Family,my Support System,My Confidante,My Lover,My Happiness and my Best Friend Forever ❤️!
I owe a lot to you and no matter what I do for you it’ll always be pale in comparison to what you have done for me! All I can say is that I’ll be your Friend Always and Forever!
We might not meet everyday but we make up for that with the incessant phone calls,Facetime Calls,WhatsApp Message and even iMessage( as you wanna show off that you have an iPhone 😜) but no matter how far we are or how less we talk (impossible) you are closest person in this entire world to me and you are always in my heart ❤️!I promise I’ll never sing songs with anyone except you because we add a beautiful rhythm to each other’s life. I promise I’ll never discuss with anyone except you about how unfair this world is and how will we save our kids from demons respectively. I promise you that there will be no other friend except you whom I’ll call at 3 am in the night to say something crazy. Above all I promise you that no matter who comes in my life I’ll never ever give your place to anyone!
Lastly thank you for this amazing #OnceUponATime pendant, the beautiful earrings and the Once in a Lifetime Woman phone cover I’ll sure be flaunting them soon and showing off to everyone that my bestie gave it to me! On an ending note I just wanna say I love you and also I hate you (reasons known 😉) and I’m very grateful and blessed to have a friend like you.
