A Friend All Along?

I’ve always hated rain. Can’t call it hate really, its just that, I’d be happier without it on most days. Why? I’d probably give you all these weird reasons like “Dude, its so ughhh”, “It becomes cold and I don’t like cold” (Which isn’t really true), “Its so wet, and the humidity increases”. All sorts of crap like those.

The real reason why I “hate” rain is because, when I was a 5 year old, I’d learnt how to game on my PC and assemble a PC when I was 6. This for some reason was very hard for people believe. Both of these, were something I couldn’t do when it rained. Why? Because here in India, there are usually power cuts when it rains. Even if they power doesn’t go, my mom would tell me to take out all the plugs from their sockets when it thundered to keep all the appliances safe. Man, I found that very annoying.

Also, I have asthma. Apparently, I wasn’t born with it but it was because of a doctors mistake or something. No one ever told me about this clearly. Anyway, when it would rain, and I’d be playing with my friends outside, my mom would call me in immediately. My immune system was pretty weak back then and I’d easily catch a cold and that would lead to asthma attacks. So I guess you understand why I didn’t like rain so much.

I grew up. My immune system is now stronger and I have gadgets to play on. All the reasons why I should’ve detested rain were now gone but I still had a negative feeling towards it. Then one night, I had this beautiful dream.

I was with this really pretty girl. We were walking down this road holding hands. The road was covered with these colorful leaves. It was autumn, I guess. It started to drizzle and I remember saying “Ugh, God damn it. Does it have to happen now?”, but she had a smile on her face, she was looking up at the sky, she looked really happy. Suddenly, it started to rain cat and dogs. I ran towards the nearest shade which happened to be something like a canopy. It was there, don’t ask me why. But the girl was screaming with happiness. It made me smile but I shouted “You’ll catch a cold, get in here!!”. But she was enjoying herself too much, she said, “You’re missing out on a lot, you know? Its okay to catch a cold once in a while. Enjoy this moment!”. That made me think very differently. I’ve always stopped myself from enjoying the rain, I’ve always told myself that I don’t like it. Maybe I should try to enjoy it this time and so I ran towards her.

We jumped in puddles. Splashed water on each other. We laughed so much. I woke up smiling. Bah. It was just a dream. Why do all these nice things always have to be a dream. The girls face and a lot of other details started to fade from my mind but it made me happy whenever I thought about the dream. That day, while coming back from college, it started to drizzle. I smiled and looked up at the sky. My friends were looking at me as if I’d done something really crazy. My friend asked me, “Dude, you sure you’re okay?”. I laughed out loud. How could I ever tell them, feelings about something are such a fragile thing.

This is a picture that I clicked from my classroom when it’d started to rain all of a sudden. The cool breeze that hit my face really made me feel awesome. Maybe I was wrong about detesting the rain. Maybe rain was trying to be a friend of mine all along but I couldn’t ever understand. I like you rain. Thanks for being there for us.

I hope you enjoyed the post. πŸ™‚ Do let me know how you feel about the rain. Have you felt so negatively about something at first and then realized how wrong you were? Tell me, I’m dying to know, no kidding.

  1. I think I’ve never felt negatively about any “thing” at first but in general I’ve hated talking to new people. Or hated it when other people could talk to new people enthusiastically, used to find it very irritating. When later, these people became my best friends, I realized how wrong I was.

    1. I think I know a few people who didn’t like talking to new people too! Its great that you’ve seen how it can actually be really nice to talk to people! πŸ˜€
      After looking at how we’ve both had such experiences, I think we should give everything we hate another chance. What do you think?
      Who is this btw? πŸ˜›

  2. Lol I used to hate rain too. Maybe cos of it’s after effects! I didn’t really know the reason. One other thing that I’m so negative about is opening my mouth in front of a few people (precisely any number more than 1) , I just can’t talk man! Maybe it’s cos I’m afraid I’d say something stupid or something like that I don’t even know the reason well xD But ur post did bring a smile on my face and keep writing more it’s pretty cool πŸ˜‰

  5. Dude, I actually never told you but I made a track in FL Studio a few weeks ago and I called it rainy days. Sometimes I’d listen to it and the thought would randomly pop up in my mind “I wonder if the song name would be reason enough for Ket to hate it – if he knew about it” xD I think now I can share the song with you.

      1. You know what’s on the top of my fear list?
        1. Brozoning. :3 :3
        Just saying. xD
        Yes, I’m super weird -.-
        LUNAAAAAAAAaa!!! WTFFFF. THAT WAS SO GOOD DUDE. I thought “Oh time pass music making means it’ll be decent.” But you’re some proooo.
        Shit. Now really, you’d rather not listen to mine. Still I’ll send it. Think twice before you listen to it though.

      2. what the hell is brozoning and why are you so fearful of it? I’m glad you liked the track though. I spent weeks on it xD it takes so long mostly because I never know what I’m doing. I can spend hours just messing aroind with some effects and VSTs or checking some sound libraries.

      3. Dude. I watched a few videos and used FL studio once xD So I don’t really know much about it.

        And I was joking about the brozoning thing. Brozoning is like.. when a girl calls you a “bro” it means you’re in the “bro zone” and so you cant be in a relationship with this person.
        It sounds so weird now that I’ve explained it but I only meant it as a joke so XD I hope you get it XD

      4. Same as friendzone then – as I thought! Yeah no worries, I don’t take it the wrong way. But the track isn’t bad for a one time session in FL, congrats πŸ˜€

  6. Awww! Such an incredible post! Thank you for telling me about it) I’d still read it, like, tomorrow))
    I LOVE the rain, really! I know why, that’s because it reminds me of the times when I was reading Harry Potter, which happen to be ones of happiest times in my life) and I remember so many moments we had with my friends while it was raining) so yeah, I love it))
    I HATE coconuts. I hate everything with it. And up untill a few months ago I hated the coconuty scent. But I changed my mind when stumbled upon this awesome fragrance)
    Thank you for your amazing posts)
    I wanted to tell you that you are one of the reasons I came back here. I had a time when I didn’t want to do anything, especially write, my muse was gone. But then I remembered you and this community in general, so I decided to give it a go once more! So thank you for the endless support!!!❀️

    1. OMG. You know what reminds me of Harry Potter? Candle lights. I used to read Harry Potter in the worst of lighting conditions. It was like. Nothing in this universe wanted me to read Harry Potter. The moment I’d start, something would go wrong but that didn’t stop me lol. Those were one of my happiest times too!! πŸ˜€
      Coconuts huh? Thanks for telling me πŸ˜€ These coconut filled chocolates, I love them. Those are one of my most loved coconut related things xD Do you have any?
      Hey, Summer. I’ll always be here because you and people like you are here. You and a few others are the reason why I write too! SO, you don’t need to thank me because its something we do for each other but.. Thank you so much, that makes me feel so honored and happy. Don’t go, okay? Blogging wont be the same without you.

  7. It’s a person I won’t mention his real name let’s call him A, if u listen to the teachers he’s a bad student and a bit disobedient to the teachers, but he was loyal to his friends but he was popular, this was in my seventh grade, well I was a silent one. I was curious why he was popular but I didn’t have a good first impression, I observed him in my eigth grade, I understood he always had a reason if he wanted to stir trouble, so I started opening up to him in eigth and ninth grade, he was one of the first people to know who my crush was in ninth grade, basically he’s one of the friends I trust and respect, he was funny and cracked jokes sometimes in front of teachers and sometimes involving teachers

    1. This is nice. I hope you’re still friends with him. The person deserves friends like you I feel. Was there a reason why this guy was disobedient towards his teachers?

      1. He talked to girls, was talkative ,he back answered teachers sometimes , strict teachers disliked that part of him, he pretty much returned the favour, he respects teachers. My school was conservative, they wanted students to get decent marks, they did keep events but not as much as icse schools I think.

  8. Luckily they didn’t notice or ignore it he was smart enough to give the wrong number at seventh grade, but at eigth grade he probably gave the right number . The bond became close enough he thought I was his brother, I became unstable and I pretty much avoided talking with him at twelvth grade, I still respect him though.

  9. i’m really glad to know you don’t hate rain anymore otherwise trust me you would have missed out on a lot too.
    when i was a kid i was pretty much fond of it. Always used to force my friend to come with me to terrace and enjoy as the rain drops down my face gently. just thinking about it makes me reminisce how much i miss it now. And the smell of wet soil after rain is just beautiful, that fresh feeling which just takes your body and soul away from the reality to a place of wonder. i still would do anything just to experience it once again, that tranquility and peace.

      1. haha it’s not i live in a deserted place or something, it’s just life happened afterwards. i dont get that much leisure time to go around with friends to enjoy it anymore. plus, half of them have already left for further studies. so, bummer me.
        yeah, even i wish that someday i can enjoy it in my own carefree manner and not hold myself back.

      2. Right. That.
        I hope you find the time! I really want you to enjoy it because its you who’s making me fall in love with it.
        I can relate to that. In my society I’m the only one who’s still here. The rest of them are either in hostels or in foreign countries. In my entire city, there are only 4 of my old friends left and I don’t get to meet them much either but hey! You can always make new friends you know πŸ˜€
        I hope life doesn’t happen that much and that you get to live life to its fullest. πŸ™‚

  10. Rain is love for me. I think it’s because it brings back nostalgic memories. I don’t know if it’s weird but I really like to cuddle in my blanket when it’s cold. So when I was like 5-6 years old whenever I came home drenched in rain my mother used to dry my hair and put me in bed. She used to keep the window open and i used to enjoy the cool breeze of air moderated by the rain and the scent of wet mud used to make me dream and I used to fall asleep to the sound of the pattering rain.

    It’s all just too lovely to dislike.
    And I totally agree with that girl in your dreams, it is okay to sometimes catch a fever if the reason is the beautiful pouring showers.

    I forever have such dreams when it’s raining. Haha.

      You know, when I read these comments, I imagine myself being in that place and when I do that, its like I’ve experienced all that. And that makes me like rain even more.

  11. I’ve always loved the rain. πŸ™‚ Some around me love the sunny blue skies, but something about the dark grey clouds makes me feel so happy. I suppose its because they come with the promise of rain ❀ Physically I'm much better tolerant towards the cold than I am towards heat, so I guess there's that too. Besides, the rains in our country are just so beautiful. ❀ I've always thought the rain brings out so many beautiful colors in everything around us.

    1. You make it sound so nice! The next time it rains I’ll read this comment again. I’m pretty sure it’ll make me like it too. :’)
      Which country are you from? Based on the song, I guessed it was India (which is where I am from too).
