We all start as strangers

"It is funny how two people who were once strangers can become an indispensable part of your life and all it took was that one moment which magically transformed the way you thought the earth worked."

The starting of all friendships and romantic relationships starts from two strangers who cross each others path. I like to imagine it like the two lines which intersects at some point. The lines were parallel at first, intersect each other and then goes back to their own path again. If you're lucky, the time of the intersection period is a lifetime but those are very rare cases.

The interesting thing about strangers is that we do not know what impact will they have on us: good, bad, long term, short term. We just don't know, but what I do know is when you do make room for strangers to enter in your life, it is an ADVENTURE and it is equally exciting as packing your bags and traveling the world.

It is the mystery of a new face. 

Now I do not mean to say to go out and talk to a random guy on the street or add a random stalker on Facebook. No! But yeah, you do get the point.

Looking back, it is rather amusing to realize the first meeting or the first conversation I had with the people I adore the most in my life today. You never know that this would be the turning point right? But it does and your life is never the same again.

We meet so many people in our lifetime and each and every person defines us who we are at the current moment and some are so special that they leave footprints in our heart forever. They either gives us memories or lessons that no one else could. 

Every friendship is formed because a simple "hello" paved the way.
Every goodbye is made possible because someone first said "hi".

..and always remember.

Do you have an interesting story to tell? Comment below or let me know though an e-mail! :)

  1. Sakshi... it's good to have you back...

    Oh my this touched me as usual... those moments where we became friends and more... it was instantaneous... a change in a heartbeat. Some so wonderful that they will always be with you even if they aren't. Actually that's quite sad sometimes... :-(

    1. We all start as strangers but sometimes we all end up as strangers too. :(

  2. This is so true! One of my guy friends who is moving away (sadly to say), we met... well, we forgot how exactly we met and became friends. In fact, the first time we met, we didn't become friends; I was mean back then (I was ten) and told him, "Why are you reading in negative 20 degree weather?" We possibly became friends because of something that happened to our younger brother and sister. :/ ^.^

    Anyways, do you have any advice for keeping in touch with friends who are moving away?

    xoxo Morning

    1. Isn't it always amusing to look back and possibly try to remember that one particular moment that changed everything? :D

      Surprisingly, the way I met my best friends today was not friendly at all but hey, things happen.

      Advice? Well I do and you might just see it in my next post ^.^

  3. We can't make it sure in advance to have always good experiences i.e. nice intersections. Sometimes these intersections are like a random point and sometimes become destiny. Different perspectives for different people.

    But one thing is for sure - They are interesting and teach us something when they happen. Doesn't matter if good or bad.

  4. Very true Sakshi.Friendships and relationships in general are made because someone somewhere said a hi or hello. Sometimes by choice; some other times accidentally. Lovely post

  5. Hi :) I love your view on this.
    It's funny how meeting people is such a chance...if you'd just decided to go the grocery store an hour later, or if you'd just ducked down and checked your phone at the wrong time.....there's a possibility that you couldn't have met some of the most important people in your life..
    I'm glad you made me think about that..Great Post.
    (excuse the blatant self-promotion, but a girl's gotta do, what a girl's gotta do haha)

    1. Thank you!
      Haha :D ( I understand ;) )

  6. We do meet so many people in a lifetime and it's wonderful when we actually meet people that become our friends. Some friendships last, some don't. But I do believe we meet every person for a reason. They help us grow or learn a lesson.
    I do like this quote " People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do."

    1. " People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which it is, you know exactly what to do."

      Beautiful lines but the question arises, do we know which one it is before they leave?


What do you think? I love hearing from you. Drop a comment below
