Yesterday, I had a bad dream. It was a bad dream because in the dream…
My mum and I stopped by a coffee hut for refreshment. She chose the table with a man almost finishing his food (you see, it is very common in Asian countries to share a table if the eatery is packed). My mum sat next to the man, while I sat across him. I didn’t recognise the man so I ignored him until he finished his food up to the last drop. To my horror, the man is someone very dear to me!
I awoke from the dream feeling bad. Hence it was a bad dream.
This dream reminds me that making new friends can be easy, but keeping in touch with old ones can sometimes be tricky. Maintaining close relationships can take a little bit of time and effort, but the reward you get is priceless.
So, why not spare a moment to make a call or write to family members or friends, just to tell them that you’re thinking about them?
As we continue en(reach)ing lives, let’s also put in effort to stay in touch!
