Friend from a different timezone

Aug 18, 2020 3 years ago

I love to write but coming with the idea of what to write is main reason of my procrastination. Finally I thought to write about friendship which is one of the very very important part of life. Friends are that awesome characters who fills our life with color and love with their stupidity, their advice which comes from nowhere on this earth, but one thing is for sure; they are the best supporters that you can ever have. I'm basically a introvert and have very few numbers of friend and I never felt that I need others. But this is life, new people enter, and some old people exit with various circumstances that we may not be aware of. Like that a new person entered my life- a friend with different timezone. During this quarantine and lock-down I was mentally frustrated. Things were not going as aspected and being confined in a house for more than two much is really tragic. Social medias were only options to stay connected. In that phase I met a stranger online which later changed into my friend. He was from Canada and I am from Asia so there used to be huge time difference. We used to manage some time for each-other. Sharing the daily routine, knowing each-others likes and dislikes, sharing the happy and sad moments or events were kinda things we used to do. He used to help me and give various suggestion to cheer me up whenever I used to feel low. I was fan of his smile and to see that smile I used to tell different jokes and try to make him laugh. I was fond of action movies while he was fond of comedy and drama genre; sharing those movies and watching them in Sundays and giving opinion on them were our favorite thing to do. And we had also made plans to meet each-other when this pandemic gets over. But as we know good things does not last forever. I don't know what was the reason lately we have been talking less. I always remember the song for this "we don't talk anymore like we used to do". I miss him and message him sometime but don't know may be because of difference in time-zone and may be some miscellaneous factor the conversation does not happen as it used to be. All I wanna say is Dear Friend, I really miss you. :)

Things happen and it's okay

Jul 26, 2020 3 years ago

Life is so uncertain, actually everything that happens is uncertain. Everything was going well like business, economy, works, exams and suddenly all things got paused because of small virus - corona virus/ covid-19. So my life during lock-down consist of happiness, sadness, loneliness, and ya was exhausting sometime. I got chance to learn so much new things and some moments were so stressful as well. Everything was going okay but one evening my dad received call from my uncle. He was having fever and was really sick. So he was planning to go Chitwan for further checkup and wanted my dad to go there from Kathmandu. Doctors referred to Hospitals of Kathmandu so they came here next day. Soon after they came various check ups were done and because of unknown reason there reports came late than expected period of time. We were really afraid what might happen now. We had already tested for covid-19 and fortunately results were negative. Still he was having continuous fever and cough. But soon his right part of the body like right legs, right hands were so weak that it was being hard for him to walk and eat as well as speak. Doctor said that physiotherapy can help so he started but time passed and no any improvement were seen. Everyone in the family were tensed. Nothing was working well. Business were shut down because of lock-down, uncles condition was getting worse, me and my sibling were at home since more than three months as colleges and schools were closed. Nothing was going good. Later report came and it was shocking for all of us. It was cancer. And soon they decided to go Delhi, India for further treatment- my dad, uncle and aunt.Despite the increasing cases of covid-19 and specially in India it was really a tough decision but getting scared and loosing life is really not an option. So we have to take risk sometime in hope that something good might happen. Somehow they manged tickets and went there. Currently they are in Delhi doing treatment. So this one of the most stressful period. During this period I also learned so many things. I always have been an introvert but I realized that we also need some social connection. Being around friend surely helps to uplift the mood though you don't like being with them all the time. I tried various recipes from You-tube and guess what they turned out to be good. So I decided to try painting as well and I soon realized it was not my cup of tea at all. Also I did various online courses on mental health and I am glad I did them. Learning about various things has always been my passion. And I am here trying my writing skills. I realized that various unexpected things happen. But we should have positive attitude within us to deal with those things. We have been so busy an we got free time to know our self in this lock-down period. So just explore thing and seeking for new things helps to please your soul and provide good vibes. It is really important to have balance in various things like work, family, relationship, etc. The time we got was really necessary to take a break from that tight schedule. I spend my day with family, talked about childhood of my parents, listened their stupid jokes, helped my siblings, tried things that I never could because of lack of time then. Sometime there were arguments but there were care and love hidden inside it. The bond with family became much more stronger though there were some arguments and all. We created special moments that will never be forgotten for rest of our lives. The unity and support was the most required thing because being lonely and not trying anything new can be really dangerous for my soul at least. So all those are my experience and opinion about the quarantine. There were good times, there were bad times. There were moments where all family used to sit in drawing room and laugh, forget everything that was happening. There were also moments where everything and everyone seemed to be blanked. There were time where I was learning new things and there were times when I was struggling with some old things. But what i think important is that I learned how to cope with all those things, how precious are the things that I used to take it for granted.I have learned to appreciate and also what i have learned is gratitude. Bad things will happen in life but what I believe is being positive is important. If you have any problem, seek help, try to trust your loved ones, believe in yourself, keep your faith in god and carry what you are doing if you believe that the things you know, is not harming yourself and others as well. Peace of mind, a good and correct information, patience, love, self-respect and hard-work are most powerful tools of life that I believe I sensed or we can say learned in this quarantine period. Now I am ready to tackle any problem with a smile though I would panic sometime and that would be completely okay cause I know I have people by my side and they always will be.
