insensitivity: the key to destruction in relationships. it’s worse when it occurs in a relationship you thought was precious. it’s easy to take for granted the people we have around us. we can have fun, joke around, but there’s always that fine line which shouldn’t be stepped across. it varies amongst people, but it’s foolish to assume that such a thing does not exist, even amongst best friends or siblings.
you do not tell a person that you want to keep his composition so that you can use it as recycled paper to plan your essay. some people take more pride in their work, because they put their heart and soul (sorry for the cliché) in them. every work represents a creative journey and an embodiment of hard work and complicated thought processes, which naturally commands one’s slightest respect.
friendships are like candles. they light up our lives. but if you are not careful, you may just extinguish them, and they may never be willing to light up again.
i don’t care if you think i am being sensitive, but you’d better stand behind my yellow line.
