I am very lucky that i have surrounded myself with people who can be happy for me. I remember a time in my life when i got a promotion in work and my friend cried…it puts an awful damper on your asachievement. I remember passing a college exam and the same friend cried…i remember when i bought my first house that same friend deciding it was time to ignore me. All through that friendship we celebrated her highs and when mine came i could do nothing because she was crying. At the time i didnt realise how wrong/ unfair it was.
Now i celebrate everything drinks with friends, dinner with family, nights away with Asif, lunches with work colleagues and i can…because they are happy for me and vice a versa.
