What if one day you woke up and realised you weren’t who you thought you were at all but the sum of all the things that people told you? Does it even matter? Is there a difference between those two people? I would assume so. Everyone takes in this world through different filters that aren’t always compatible.
“You just have to be a good person;” but what does it mean to be good? The phrase is all around me and has been since I can remember looking up at that big-face-of-whatever-family-member… It means remembering that just because you think your cause is greater than someone else you have to make sure you look at everything from all angles before acting. It’s not a fool-proof method but that’s what we’re here to do: make mistakes and learn from them.
People get so angry when someone makes a mistake; so angry that sometimes they end friendships because of it. And when the ending of the relationship makes sense1 you’ll know because you’ll feel a lift in your chest from it. It’s when you end a friendship with someone and suddenly become obsessed with destroying them that the red flag should get your attention. At least that’s how it works in my head. Even though it sounds like it, I’m not saying everyone has to think this way. How boring would life be if everyone thought the same way?
And I have to get ready for work so I’m going to end this ramble here…2.
