Friends and Enemies

I had trouble writing about this topic, honestly. I really wanted to write about politics - how they've invaded our friendships and families like a virus does, invisibly, violently. Politics have destroyed relationships to the point that we have to pretend that all is well even though our differing opinions sit at the surface of every conversation, unspoken yet understood. So, I'll post a pop video. Pink. She's fun. We all deal with self loathing, so..



This post was inspired by the Loose Bloggers Consortium, a small and feisty(!) global community. We write weekly on a common topic (Friends and Enemies, this week) and post responses - all of us together, simultaneously, from all over the world. (Lovely!) Please visit Anu, Ashok, Conrad, gaelikaa, Grannymar, Judy, Magpie 11, Maria and Ramana for other wonderful posts.

Friends and relationships are vulnerable. I recently saw a play where it said that if a friend chose to hurt another, he would know exactly how to go about it. Its really not an easy task to sustain such bonds, but then the results are worth it :)

The video has been blocked by Vevo! Frankly, I don't understand self loathing. May be I am just lucky not to have to deal with that but, I do believe that it is a waste of time and energy. I would use whatever it takes to forget the cause and move on in life.

Hi! I love the look of your blog now - the other one was lovely too. You have an interesting take on this subject. I am unable to view the video on your website, but I'll find it and check it out. I love visiting your site - you always make me sit up and think!

I'm not drunk, but seeing this post twice?? I am also unable to get the video.

Look forward to the next topic.
