Today a close friend of mine forgot we were on the phone when he met another friend of his as he was walking around campus. He got indulged into another conversation for a few minutes and I received another phone call and had to hang up.
In a sense, we both took each other for granted over a simple phone call, he believed that he’ll find me on the other end when he returns to the phone and I believed it would be okay to hang up, receive the other call and then call him back.
I find no problem with that. In fact, I took it as a compliment.
There are many ways to look at being taken for granted, one is; you’ve become a comfortable, trusted element in someone else’s life.
How could that ever be a bad thing?
We spend our lives wishing for and wishing away, but one can never wish not to become a fitting piece in someone’s life.
