Sharing #NaBloPoMo day 23

I pinged R, my friend, in the morning today.

Me: Hey R, you have that beautiful meditation music right? Can you please send me that audio? The one I have isn’t half as good.

R: I have it, but why don’t you go get it on Youtube? Look for water meditation.

Me: Ok, thanks.

That was all. I wondered right then if I made a mistake in asking her for it or she made a mistake in telling me where to look because Youtube probably doesn’t have mp3 music.

There would probably be many such tracks out there. How will I know which one it is exactly? Wasn’t it simple enough to send me the track instead? How long does it take?

What I requested her to share with me wasn’t anything personal, was it? I won’t hold it against her, but someone just lost respect in my eyes.

  1. there are people who help just for the sake of it. there are people who express their impatience on hearing the second doubt from us….just they are proving that they are not an approachable person.. leave i dear..

    1. Oh no..she wasn’t busy and could’ve easily done the needful. She chose not to. See, I never ask for favours from anyone, ever. This was something I asked after much deliberation. So yes, it hurt. Respect is hard to earn and very easy to lose. Keep this as a lesson for yourself too, Harsh.
      I’m ok. Trying to find solace in the mundane daily activities.

      1. Yes Di even I have experienced this… it takes just one second to spoil your image!
        You expected from her and she did that, that’s why you got hurt… that’s why I expect less from people, even my friends… haha
        So how’s angel and everyone?

      2. Um…I don’t think this is called as expectation per se. A simple thing anyone could do for anyone. Just the name of the track could be enough. I knew I would do it quite simply.
        Everyone is fine. How are you and your studies?

  3. I’ve actually had the opposite experience but it felt equally hurtful. When a friend was looking for some information, I tried to be helpful by explaining it first, and then I sent a few links. After a day or two, I aksed if he’d got what he wanted. The response was an irritable, “I’m busy..too many things to do unlike you who seem to have so much time.” I learned to keep a low profile with that particular person.
