I have realized over time that what is a flaw for one may be the goal for another.
And that is what makes us all beautiful human beings.
My attributes may be conflicting at times, confusing even myself. They keep me up at night obsessing over how people view me. They come up when I am alone at a restaurant, when I go for a bath, when I comb my hair or get dressed. They are with me every breathing second. I love them, I hate them. But in the end- they are my soul.
And that’s never going to change. For anyone. We are all in the same fish-tank here guys.
We are told to be uncaring of what societal values are. Rebel. Break boundaries. But no matter how much we try, some infinitely small part still cares. And that isn’t necessarily a problem.
Why is it wrong that we view what impact we have on society, how they view us? Yes, to let it define you to an extent where you become untrue to yourself would be unacceptable to any individualist. But a little consideration never hurt anyone. Let us take a hypothetical situation.
You live in an apartment and are having a party over at your place. Music is loud, booze is running and everyone is having a good time. At 1 am, the middle aged couple next door rings your doorbell and asks you to tone down the party as they can not sleep.
You have two options here.
1: You call them conservative freaks and continue your party till they call the cops (if they do).
2: You understand their point of view, assure them the party will be done by 2 am, actually wrap up the party (or switch off the music and chill). Here you think, they must be so tired, all they do is work, maybe they need a little well deserved relaxation. And maybe, just maybe, next week the neighbor makes you cookies. Yum.
Positivism breeds positivism. Lets remember that. Being nice never hurt anybody and it will continue to never hurt anybody.
Everyone deserves a little TLC.
Show your love sweets. xP
Looking forward to hearing from you.
