TOPIC: SOME IMAGINE WHAT TO DO FOR A FRIEND, WHILE OTHERS DO WHAT THEY IMAGINE FOR THE SAME FRIEND
Life is full of risk, we live in risk. You cannot avoid risk taking if really you desire to sustain life. Some difficult steps as risk are talking in order to promote life, that is where success depends.
Today we are going to talk about “going extra mile positively” for your friend. There is no need to continue to imagine what to do as to maintain your friendship. Start doing what you are thinking.
For instance, a boy and a girl were so friendly in a genuine way. The parents knew it and were waiting for the outcome. The girl was also patiently waiting for the boy to say something about their relationship. The boy was shy and was imagining what to say and how to say it. The girl was so pretty, and boys were coming after her. She wanted to marry, but her boyfriend did not say anything about that. She was not quick to say yes or no to suitors outside her boyfriend hoping that her boyfriend will finally talk about it. One day she said “a casual yes to a suitor” as her mother instructed her. The boy she said yes to, went straight with her to the girl’s mother and said, I proposed your daughter and she has said “yes” to me, here is my engagement ring on her, please permit me to marry her. The mother asked her daughter, “did you actually said yes to his proposal? Her daughter her mother answered yes to her mother.
The young man ran home to tell his parents, after some hours the original boyfriend came with flowers hidden behind him, and was about to say something about their long existed relationship, his girlfriend joyful hugged him shouting, “praise the Lord!” her boyfriend asked her what it is, she said “I have finally said yes to a suitor for marriage”.
Her boyfriend shamefully went home with tears showed the girl the flowers and ring he came with. She cried also and said, I have been expecting to hear that from you.
THE YOUNG MAN WENT HOME WITH SHAME AND DISAPPOINTED
STOP IMAGINING WHAT TO DO FOR YOUR FRIEND, START DOING THAT YOU HAVE IN MIND.
That is how we can maintain our relationship. We are talking about legitimate relationship.
Those who kept imagining will never act. Those who act may not actually achieve, but there is no harm in trial.
Therefore, it can be lack of sincerity to say one is a real friend but puts everything he or she wants to do in a scale that does not permit him or her any mistake.
We are not saying that people should enjoy making mistakes.
People who live the life of “imagining too many mistakes, never carried on with their plans”.
If the person is a real friend, he or she should act to find out exactly the thought worrying him or her.
The point is that when the plan is not actualized, there would be no satisfaction. The emphasis is on “putting it into action not minding the results”. Surely! It is noted that a true friend will never put his or her friend into anything evil.
Imagination harbors things for long even permanently, yet pretends to know nothing, whatsoever to do for a friend. Imagination doesn’t confirm the real position of a person. What established a person’s position is action. You cannot know what a person can do until he or she acts. It is not enough to be in a dream world. How many of those who never acted, won their purpose?
Fear is the major thing which coated anyone’s action. But don’t let fear dominate you, if really you want to succeed.
