For those of you who know me.
When i say “know me”
I definitely do not mean the “Hey what’s up man, How’s it going?” kind.
But, the ones who know my shameful acts as a person.
Those are the kind that really know us.
give or take its probably less than 5% of the people who are reading this.
The fact that you know me or not, utterly has no significance to what I’m about to say.
Those of you who” know me”
Know that i have a Dog and a Cat named April and Mike.
April’s the dog, And Mikes the Cat.
So i know you’re probably having the question,
Why would you name your dog “April”,
Like was he born in April or something.
So i always dreamt of naming my daughter April.
Well, obviously only if i had one.
Yeah, i know that it doesn’t make sense to give my dog the name instead.
And yeah that’s how i operate.
To name a Dog with the name of a daughter who is unborn when i can’t think of a name for the Dog that has been born.
And please don’t ask me,
That story is not mine to tell.
It’s my sisters.
She’s the one who named him.
So if you’ve managed to read through until this part, i for sure think you’re a survivor.
And no matter how weird the content goes.
I probably think you’ll read through it.
Just another long day after work.
I reach home.
I Open the Gates.
And April who has a fondness for whiling away half of his life sleeping at our stair case,
Comes running to me.
And he has a weird habit of not letting me go until he gets patted.
And man, you should see how excited he was to see me.
The energy, the love, it’s contagious you know?
If you’re not a dog lover, I’m not sure if you can relate.
If not, you for sure can.
Back to the story,
So i pet him for say a minute.
Open the doors,
Get into my room.
And there’s Mike.
Stretching his legs, and chilling out on my bed.
He watches me come in. Lifts his head up.
And back to where he was.
Not a damn reaction.
And i also noticed that the Ac was turned on.
So the picture I’m trying to paint here is a cat in a bed with AC turned on who doesn’t give a damn about who you are.
What a life?
So, me being the shameless person that i am,go pet him as well, for i don’t know maybe for the next 10-15 minutes.
Now we arrive to the point if all of this Cat and Dog petting makes sense or not.
I hope it does.
I think we can relate this to our lives
I think all of us have friends in our lives like April and Mike.
Those who get excited when they see us, and shower their love upon us and still get to spend their lives outside our hearts, sleeping on a staircase for the most part of their lives.
And there are those who don’t care about what happens to us, but still get the attention, the luxury, and the love from us. They lie in our hearts forever.
They never reciprocate. And there we are, giving the best ambience in our hearts day in and day out.
We know for certainty, that the ones on the stair case are the ones who really deserve it.
But it’s the ones who don’t , who gets the AC with a cozy bed in our hearts.
I don’t know if April knew if there was a better spot than his stairway.
Because i did show him love, A 3 minute love. And he thought that was the only love i had and the one that i gave away.
Only do i know, that there is love that i shower to Mike for 15 minutes without him not giving an eye.
Here’s the tricky part in friendship.
The other person always thinks that they are being loved more than the other.
Little do they know, the places we’ve given them in our hearts.
And in most cases when the places that they’ve been given in our hearts gets reveled.
The dog gets out of the house.
And never comes back.
And this has led me to think,
That not everytime do we have a person always waiting to shower their love on us.
Let’s face it, Life goes on and sometimes people can’t make time even if they badly want to
So Josh, you say sometimes you come home and there’s nobody to give you the attention?
I’d say Yes.
For me i do have a connection, Someone who i can always be connected to.
And someone who always is ecstatic to hear my stories.
And he’s someone who is always frowned upon by “The Athiests”
Who would that be?
I don’t know,
Try figuring out.
At the end of the day,
All we need is someone who listens and cares for us.
And as humans we know there’s nobody who “always” gets us.
Other than the one who will not be named by the atheists :p
So If you’ve read this,
I’d say one thing to you.
Give the luxury of your time, love and energy for those who really deserve it.
Don’t let them sleep in the staircase of your heart.
Let them know it gets better inside that room with the Coolness of our love turned on
