In a phone call with Funfare, Sharon clarified that her comments were said in jest. “Joke talaga ‘yon between him sana and me. Wala naman akong balak tirahin siya. Isip ko, nagkakaintindihan kaming dalawa. In fact, nagbiruan pa nga kami ni Ai-Ai after that.” Though she admitted that she did have a bit of “sama ng loob” with Aga after a movie project with him fell through. “I felt that Aga has been taking me for granted. He wouldn’t even say if he wanted to still do the movie or not, he kept only on saying, ‘Okay, okay!’” Sharon said in the column. “To make a long story short, matagal na akong na-i-insulto. I kept things to myself.”
On top of this, she admitted that got really hurt seeing Aga and Charlene at Ai-Ai’s concert when the actor didn’t go to her own back in August. “Feeling ko, ‘Wow, nakaka-inggit naman si Ai-Ai dahil present silang dalawa ni Charlene.’ Ang dami kong pinagdadaanan noon and the presence of my friends in the audience would have made me feel better. When I called to invite him, he didn’t commit himself; all he said was, ‘Basta galingan mo.”
Despite all these, Sharon reiterated that she still considered Aga a friend. “First thing this morning,” she told Funfare, “I texted him a message when I realized that I must have hurt him.”
Female Network wants to know, have you ever experienced being snubbed by a friend? Before you get upset or go all up in arms, relax and check out these tips.
1. DON'T LOOK FOR INTRIGUES WHEN THERE AREN'T ANY
It may have been that the other person was in a hurry or having a bad day. It's not always about you, and you should consider that.
2. CLEAR THE MATTER UP
If you're not particularly close to the person, simply ask her what's up. You may want to make a point of coming up to her and greeting her the next time you see each other. If she deliberately snubs you, start by asking yourself what reason she might have to do so. If you're still in the dark, ask mutual friends or ask her outright.
3. TELL HER HOW YOU FEEL
Snubbing is a petty action. Be the mature person in this scenario and tell your friend that she hurt your feelings when she played the dedma game. Ask her how you can repair whatever rift has formed between you—but remember, she should be willing to meet you halfway. Otherwise, she obviously doesn't value your friendship as much as you do.
4. REVENGE IS FOR THE SMALL-MINDED
Don't snub her in turn or gossip behind her back. Just accept the fact that she would rather make public gestures such as this than talk to you about whatever the problem is. Don't retaliate by publicly criticizing her behavior or sinking to her level; instead, do the classy thing and rise above it.
5. WELCOME ANY OVERTURES SHE MAKES WITH YOU EVEN THOUGH THE SNUB HURT YOUR FEELINGS
After all, to err is human, to forgive, divine. Again, it's beneath you to hold a grudge. While you do not have to resort to plastikan if she shows she's ready to be friends again, at least act with courtesy and be willing to listen to her reasons—even if you may not agree with them.
