Every year we learn fascinating things or we go through difficulties. I’ve decided to write about things that really impacted me through 2010, hopefully someday these posts will be a reminder not to make the same mistakes or of how wonderful life is beyond materialism.
1. I see mean people. I was raised to believe in the good in people. Yay, right. Until I met selfish, ungrateful, jealous, gossipy, liars, people who would love to see you hurt.
The past two years were revelating for me, people whom I had in the list of friends and relatives, showed their true colors whenever I revealed my happiness. From the moment I moved east I felt alone. And in 2010 there’s the highlight.
It became clear to me; friendship is being threatened, people are mean. Not everyone likes to see you happy, not everyone is there to help you. The only person you can rely on is yourself. So I look myself in the mirror and I’m happy to have that best friend, me.
What bothers me is that people close to us, given the opportunity; they’re being ironic, mean and jealous. Yesterday some of them actually for the second time after many months gone by gibed us for our European trips last year. And I’m pretty sure that they are all about judging and criticising.. I mean, if there’s anything you wish to tell me, tell it to my face, be honest and stop taunting me.
Why is it that when you do something that you really like and makes you happy, others just want to take it away from you? Is it ungratefulness that makes people can’t handle others happiness?
