Schools over and it’s summer now! Well… ’’summer’’, Sweden isn’t the country you visit if your looking for a sunny and hot summer. One day is it sunny and then two hours later you see how the raindrops start to fall from the sky and the heaven turns from clear blue to grey. That means you can’t make plans that includes being outside without doubting about how the weather will be which is a bummer, so you just gotta be decisive and do it no matter what.
Just like that, Zakir and I were determined to go out for a picnic today even if it was grey and cold outside. Which it was but at least it wasn't raining, just blowing but I’m okay with the wind and the grayness as long as I’m wearing warm clothes. So back to the topic, we went out for a picnic!
It felt like we needed to talk after all, it’s been quiet between us lately and it turned out to be some misunderstandings and talking about it uses to work for us. That’s something I have to point out, no matter what, Zakir and I always try to talk about it and fix it. It has worked good so far and I really appreciate that we can do it without making the problem bigger than it is or have discussions that leads to breaking up the friendship. We can always fix it and I like it!
So the sun wasn’t shining and it was windy but we had a great time, we needed to talk about the things that has happened around us and how it has been these days. We ate pasta and mud cake cookies, yum! He also got followed by som ducks for while, are we the only ones that thinks ducks are a bit scary?
It was fun anyway and I hope everyone is able to find a friend like him, at least when his normal, and keep the friendship alive! Make it to a friendship where you may not talk everyday and where you go through difficult times so you can grow together and create memories/experiences where you learn how to be a better person with other people.
I can tell you that with Zakir I’ve learned to be patient, accept people for who they are and the fact that I won’t change their mind, forgive and understand ’’complicated’’ personalities. That’s why I think that you always can learn something new in every friendship you’re having, because everyone is different and has different thoughts than yours. Some of them are older than you and some are younger than you, that helps you to get more perspective in things. I’ve learned when I can be childish and in which circumstances I can not act like a little girl but a mature person, of course, if the other person is hurting you or just making you feel bad you have the right to stop being their friend. A good friend is someone who regrets hurting and tries to not hurt you at all and if they do, they will apologize for what they’ve done and of course you have to forgive them.
This is how you turn a casual picnic to a proverb, hope you agree with me and that you liked this.
PS. I have a little surprise to tell you in the next post so stay tuned!!!
