Be it your parent, sibling, child, friend, colleague or a ghost from the past - reach out and make up.
No matter how trivial the relationship seems to you now, go ahead and mend your fences. Many valuable friendships have been formed after the cold has thawed.
All you need is to smile and say hello. Now, that doesn`t seem too difficult does it? Just make sure you meet their eyes and that your smile is genuine. The rest will follow easier than you think.
Many relationships go asunder only because each party is waiting for the other to make the first move.
Forgive if you can`t forget - if you do have a genuine grouse. Whether we like it or not, we need to accept the world the way it is and not the way we think it should be.
Have it in your heart to say, "She did it, but it`s okay now".
Talk things over if you can. If not, let it be for now. There`s plenty of time for it in the future.
If it is someone you`re dying to make up with and you don`t know how to, just throw a Diwali party and invite her to it. Greet her warmly when she comes. The presence of other guests will help carry on conversations while the fences get automatically mended.
You might be reluctant to reach out, but you will be glad that you did. Your heart will be infinitely lighter and you`ll stand tall in your own eyes.
Do it because you deserve happiness. Pride is cold comfort indeed.
