Last week when I went back to Taiwan, I gathered with some of my college friends. I heard that one of our college friends who just encountered her difficulty in the first half of this year behaved a little strange. I still remember that many people comforted and supported her when the disappointing thing happened. I knew that she must be very depressing but she looked stronger than we thought. The scene that we encouraged mutually, manifesting our close friendship is so unforgettable.
However, just a few months later, she seems detached from us. Since I am working abroad, I thought she might be very busy for her new life and might not have time contacting me. Until I participated the gathering last week, I heard that she took part in a spiritual growth lesson which was expensive and time consuming. She even actively persuaded others to spend money taking this lesson, and it was a part of graduating assignment. Some of my friends felt bothered being persuaded but didn’t know how to reject.
I was surprised. In my impression, she was such a gentle and empathetic person. I couldn’t imagine that she’s become aggressive without caring others’ feelings. Just half year passed, but so many things happened. I found that relationships are almost changing. Maybe we are changing too. Nothing is forever.
I couldn’t help but sigh.
上週我回台灣時和大學的朋友聚會,聽到了我們其中一位上半年碰到重大挫折的朋友變得奇怪。我還記得當時大家圍繞她身邊給予安慰支持。我知道她肯定是很低落,但看起來又很堅強。我們相互鼓勵,宣示著我們的友誼,那場景令人難忘。然而,只不過是過了幾個月,她卻離我們疏遠,因為我在國外工作,想說她只是在忙。直到我參加了這次聚會,才知道她上了某個心靈成長課,課程又貴又花時間,而畢業功課竟然是說服別人花錢來上課。有些朋友已經感到困擾不知道該如何拒絕。
我很震驚,在我印象中,她是很溫柔善解人意的人,無法想像她會變得激進而不在意他人的感受。只不過是過去半年,卻發生了好多事情。我感到關係不斷在變化,可能是因為我們自己也在變化。也許世上沒有永恆吧!
我不得不感到感嘆呀!
