So no one told you life was gonna be this way
Your job’s a joke, you’re broke, your love life’s D.O.A.
It’s like you’re always stuck in second gear
When it hasn’t been your day, your week, your month, or even your year, but
I’ll be there for you, (When the rain starts to pour)
I’ll be there for you, (Like I’ve been there before)
I’ll be there for you, (‘Cause you’re there for me too) (The Rembrandt)
I had thought – nah assumed we would be friends forever…best friends…Regular friends would come and go ..but you and I will always be there….have each other’s back…we have had each other’s back… At times I thought you knew me as no one did…you stood up for me when I couldn’t stand up for myself…you were the friend who was to stay forever the way you were.
Then we grew up…but we still held on…now we met for an occasional holiday..a work trip…a night out and we comforted ourselves that we were still the same…Some more time went by…we changed cities…we spoke less…we got busier…life started happening to us. Now we spoke once in three months…we made more friends…friends who were near us…our families, children took priority as they should perhaps…and we went along…got lost in the circus of lunches, dinners…the entire facade …When the words started failing we repeated our stories to our kids….how we were inseparable…how we knew each other’s every little secret… only now we didn’t say anything to each other…
Many times I tried to slow down the merry-go-round and tell you – I need to talk to you like I can’t talk to anyone else..coz you get me…you will understand but I just watched the merry go round spin round and round thinking, how busy were or at least you would know what I was going through or you just might ask…and I waited…I depended on the telepathic connection you and I always shared..but months of silence had dulled the connection.
We carried on in silence you and I.…
You have not gone anyway and neither have I – we are still a phone call – a flight away but suddenly now, the void between us seems huge ….I am still not willing to let go of the thin threads that hold us…Every now and then, I try to quieten the panic that rises in me…not this friendship….I always assumed as we grew older, we would be more courageous, braver ….but why do I see you hiding behind the niceness…carefully wrapped …I see you carefully jumping over the uncomfortable topics.… hesitate over the not so nice stuff….and wonder when did caution get in our friendship…..when did you start averting your eyes….
Out of all the different readings that I do, more often than not I see the Three of Cups reversed come up in friendship readings when things have gone a bit out of whack. The Three of cups when reversed in the Tarot means broken friendships, jealousy, expectations that do not come true, infidelity, depression, not listening to your feelings. Often it is a reflection that you, the querent, are that third person and may be involved in an affair or dealing with an unfaithful partner. But in friendships, it depicts a loss of a friendship, heartbreak due to friends. When this card appears in a reading, look to the other cards for more detail on the nature of the relationship as well. However, if this card appears in reading regarding love/relationships it can indicate infidelity, lust, extramarital relationships or the end of a relationship.
3 of cups reversed can sometimes indicate that good fortune is around or positivity is around the corner but you cannot see it. If the reading is career-related, it can show that a new partnership may not work out well, or that you are giving too much to a situation or asking too much from it.
