Unfriending Friends, Befriending non-Friends

How many times have you been hurt by a friend?
We make friends with others to have emotional support in life. To go and talk to them when we're down. To listen to them when they're feeling blue. To go out and enjoy each other's company. To be loved and to love back.

But what can happen that suddenly those who are supposed to make us feel better turn into those who make us feel worse? What can happen that all those good feelings are gone and irritation or worse than that hatred can replace it?

That is sad then. When two people grow apart. When they avoid each other. When they insult each other. When rude angry harmful words replace those sweet words. Yes all this can happen.

And you would sit back and wonder why really? Adults can act like kids. Unforgiving revengeful angry kids. Worse than kids.

You have two choices then:

1. To let things go and nothing remains.
2. To try to mend the broken friendship and fix it.

Number one depends on how you hurt each other and number two on how that friendship is important for you. And it depends how both sides prefer to put their pride under their feet.

Human relationships are complicated. It's not only love and loving which can rise us or hurt us. Other forms of feelings and bonds can change the way you feel.

People come and go. You also come and go. You unfriend some friends and befriends nonfriends and make new friends.

Life goes on. With or without people.


whatever said…
thank you, i need to read this post. I just read that part where both parties need to put their pride under their feet...and so i have apologised to someone ive hurt, via sms.

jan: dear (used at the end of names like "Sonya jan" which means dear Sonya)
jigar: (very informal) sweetie
jigar-tala: (very informal) sweetie (tala means gold, funnily enough jigar means liver!)

Queen Fawzia

Today I'd like to write about someone who wasn't Iranian but for sure had a role in Iran's history: Queen Fawzia.

If you ask me to name the most beautiful women in the world, one of them is certainly Fawzia Fauad.

Daughter of Malek Fauad, the Egyptian king, she was born in 4 November 1921 in Cairo, Egypt. Malek Faud's family were originally from Albania, and you can see that in their blue eyes and light hair.

Reza Shah, Iran's King at that time decided to choose a wife for his son Muhammad-Reza among Eastern princesses. From all those girls, Muhammad-Reza chose Fawzia.

Soon a Royal group from Iran with Muhammad-Reza Pahlavi left Iran to Egypt, for the courting ceremony and planning  the wedding. The young couple met there and a splendid feast was held.

After a few days Muhammad-Reza, Fawzia and a Egyptian royalty group including Fawzia's Mother and sisters arrived in Iran for the wedding ceremony. The ceremony was very magnificent according to the Life magazin…

Arash, Melody, and Two Little Ds

This is Arash, the Iranian singer in Sweden. He has got a famous song called Melody (but in my opinion not better than his song Dasa Bala, feat Aylar, et al). There is a blond baby at the end of the song in Arash' arms. Many people said Melody, the little girl at the end of the video is Arash' daughter.

My question at that time was if she's his daughter, why so blond? Had Arash married a Swedish girl? Then by little searches I understood, firstly Arash married just some months before the video and it's not possible to have a kid so soon (unless the bride was expecting a baby before the wedding which I'm sure wasn't the case!); secondly Arash married an Iranian girl and it's not possible for an Iranian couple to have such a white blond baby (if they had, ask some genealogists what had happened), thirdly Melody is his colleague's daughter, a Swedish man.

A few moments ago Arash updated on his facebook page he became a father, has twins called Donya and D…
