It’s been long since you dropped by to pay me a visit. So, I thought of checking up on you, seeing if everything is fine at your end.
We used to be such good friends – hanging out all the time, you asking me for advice on all kinds of stuff and I, being the all-knowing-person that I am, helping you wade through your life crisises. So, naturally, I was scared when you hadn’t visited me even once in the last 48 hours.
You aren’t avoiding me, are you? I couldn’t have possibly done anything wrong. I’ve only done you favours over the entire span of our friendship. I’ve always been there for you, haven’t I?
Remember when you had asked me about your splitting headache? I had told you that you might have had a migraine or you might have cancer.
Remember when you asked me about your missed period and I had told you that you might be pregnant and like a good friend, I had suggested tips how to take care of yourself?
Remember when you had asked me about a medicine and I had told you all about its side-effects?
Remember when you had failed in that important exam and I had told you how many had scored a 100 percentile?
Hey, and did you forget about the friends you have made through me? Let me remind you that you had zero friends when you met me. The friend circle you have today is because of me.
And what about the jobs you could find because of me? Pretty sure you didn’t forget that, did you?
We have found gifts for your family, your boyfriend and your roommates together. I have even summarised most of the topics for you on the days before your exams so that you didn’t have to delve into entire chapters from the books. I have even taught you some recipes so that your mom doesn’t badger you about your almost-nil culinary skills.
And darling, did you forget that you need validation for whatever you post? Who helps you get that? Me.
So come on, you and I both know that I am as important as oxygen for you. You need me, babe. But I don’t need you. You know it well.
Hope you come over to pay me a visit soon.
Your true friend,
