A lady and a gentleman meet through the blogging community.
The lady really liked the gentleman's blog posts and began commenting. And he began commenting on hers and encouraging her to write more..She felt for the first time in her life that she was being taken seriously and someone wanted to hear her...
They became e-mail and chat friends but she being influenced a bit too much by her environment misunderstood her blog friend and kept silence.
Then at some point, she realised her mistake and missed that blog/chat friend. So she returned and apologised. The gentleman being kind and gentle accepted her apologies and began talking to her again.
This time around, she did want the friendship and really was glad that at least someone was reading what she wrote. However, she was not good at acknowledging the same. She also became extremely busy with her work and was getting a bit stressed from the same. He sent her e-mails but she being the biggest procrastinator never replied. So there was again an unintentional silence between the two.
Then, at some point he gave up and thought he was not being appreciated. He sent her his last e-mail and said I shall not be reading you and keeping any contact with you anymore.
When she read his e-mail, she felt anger and then a sadness. She was so overwhelmed she thought she better leave her thoughts unsaid.
But, no she had agreed and promised to this pen friend, that she will tell him frankly what she feels. SO she kept up to her promise, sent her apologies, told him that she understood and will not persuade him not to leave her alone. She also said that she was very thankful for his comments and will miss them.
She had resolved that she will maintain the silence that he now preferred but felt saddened throughout the day. Every five minutes after her reply, she refreshed her e-mail, hoping he would forgive...And as a last resort she decided to write a blog-post on her experience with her pen-friend whom she admires and values a lot.
Yes, the lady is me...and this is a post for the 30th Inspiration Monday prompts at bekindrewrite .
