Freedom, From Fear Of Exams Home
Posted at 9:31 AM by Aditya

My examinations are finally over, and I am on a loose end. Suddenly, all the things that I wanted to do while they were going on, don't seem that important to me. Ofcourse, the only thing that's remained constant by the end of it is my guitar habits. I still pick it up anytime I want to, and start playing it. But that is really not the reason why I am writing this post...

There are so many kinds of people on this earth. Each person is different. Each. That's approximately a billion unique individuals. Everyone has their qualities, their negatives. Each one has friends, and people who care for them. Yet, some people choose not to accept them the way they are, and try to change the little aspects of their character to suit themselves. Sometimes, the person in question understands the motive and stops it from happening, but a different person who might understand the motive but really likes his friend(s) decides to change his ways. Both these people are heroes in their own way, yet, one of them is wrong. Its really easy to which one, and that, is something called taking advantage of. Taking, and letting yourself being taken, are both wrong.

Accept people the way they are. Its the small things that you might find annoying that make them who they are. If you accept them, then ignore them (the characteristics). But just like you'll throw away an iPod after a year because it has a few scratches on the screen, even though it annoys you and makes you sad... why will you let go of such an amazing friend. I call that person an amazing friend, because someone who commits to friendship, has to be an amazing person.

You can try for a year, and still not make a friend. Yet, you can offend one in an hour


It is our power of tolerance that makes us who we are. If you can't tolerate, be patient, then you are not fit to be in society. Everything about someone is bound to upset you. I know it for a fact that there has to be something about your parents that might tick you off everytime, but do you let go of them? They won't change it for you... so will you leave them and move on? Why, because you're mooching off of 'em and can't do without the food, house, clothes and other things they give? Or because you love them?
So why the injustice to your friend who chose to love you, and like you as a person enough to want to be your friend? Why the lack of patience and tolerance with them? Can you see the irony?

I don't know why I wrote this post, but I thought this was just something I had to talk about. Maybe someday, the one this post was actually written for, will get to read it. This life is too long, who knows...
Outages!

mon chere... c'est la vie... (that means that's life...) our very own friends DO want to change us for THEIR comfort... which basically means they're not really friends in the first place. friends must be like mirrors, reflecting your negative qualities, but in an objective way, and not making you change for it, because those qualities are what make you who you are.

and those QUALITIES may be the reason your "friends" want to change you, but they may also be the reason someone ELSE is falling in love with you...

you may not know it... je ne dis pas rien...

okay, that's all! and there are 6 billion people on the planet, so that's 6 billion individuals!

AND SOME PEOPLE NEED A SLAP HARD ACROSS THEIR FACES, BECAUSE THEY ARE NOWHERE TO BE FOUND AND/OR DO NOT BOTHER ACKNOWLEDGING CALLS, AND AVOID THEM. WHATEVER. IF THEY HAVE TO ACT MEAN AND SHOW ATTITUDE, THEN THE OTHER PEOPLE DON'T GIVE A SHIT EITHER, BECAUSE IT'S REALLY NONE OF THEIR BUSINESS. AND OF COURSE, THE OTHER PERSONS REALLY AND SINCERELY DO NOT CARE, AND ARE NOT GETTING SHIT WORRIED. SO THE SAID PEOPLE MUST GO AND DO US A FAVOUR AND------- BECAUSE THEY DO NOT KNOW THE MEANING OF HUMANITARIANISM.
