The world doesn’t always revolve around you, you know?
That’s what my dad has told my siblings quite a few times. I agree with it, though it’s sad to know you are not the center of the universe (>.<) Well, you MAY be, but only to a certain number of people. Even to those people, you can’t always be the highlight all the time, right?
To see people who love to be adored, kinda remind me of myself a few years back. Of course I was just like other people, i.e love to be known, to be popular and to have a lot of connections in the world. (never once I was popular though).
However, as I grow older and maturity takes over, I realised that there is more to life than just getting people’s attention. I just hate how some people can act all childish and ‘cheap’ just to attract or seek attention. Especially in getting the attention of the other gender. I keep telling myself that these people are just trying new things in life and trying hard to fit in the society. But somehow I think there should be some limit to it. Sometimes it just gets on my nerves. They can actually think straight, cant they? But they just have to act all spoilt and refuse to learn.
Of course I still enjoy making friends as much as I enjoy keeping them. Can’t promise that the quality of friendship will last like how it started though. (Have a few experiences where best friends turn into some strangers. Don’t even let me start on that.. Phew). But having friends that care for you and to get people’s attention are two different things. Having people care for you has some sincerity in it. And to get people’s attention might have some ‘force’ in it.
A friendship that comes quite naturally I think. Thanks guys for always being there for each other. :)
Just go with the flow and never force a friendship or a relationship. Something that comes naturally is always better and more fun. Make yourself interesting and let people see it themselves. It doesn’t work by telling people how interesting you are but what people can see is just some pushy character. Never try too hard to win people’s heart.
After all, the world doesn’t just revolve around YOU.
