People don’t actually care !!
Lately, my life has been turning a lot around to something that makes me smile. I know it’s hard to smile during the worst times but it’s also hard to have bad times when we smile. Well! Instead of playing with words, let me come to the core.
As I go through this very journey of life, there is something that I seem to have noticed recently. PEOPLE DON’T ACTUALLY CARE. Most of us do something for someone in the name of “doing it for ourselves.” There is a thin line between family and relatives. Those who support you from behind are family and those who only support when acknowledged are others. As I mentioned the word LIFE, it’s not as easy as it sounds. With all the facts kept at the tip of my understanding that life is nothing but a roller coaster, I would like to throw down something over that.
In the past few months, I noticed people who judge others to keep their egos alive for what I call “sea level balancing.” They would say anything and everything to pull that person down to keep their ends up high as they see others growing. And those who got pulled down, they are ones going through their bad times. As I was. And due to this circus of life, time and effort pull us up to a higher platform. So, at times like that - they speak of nothing but the touch they had with you “OH EI NA HAIDRA MASEY YAMNA FABANEYNA.”
I know my article might sound childish but I will tell you, this hypocrisy when poured on an amateur, will burn everything. I have had my hard days, days I wish I never wake up away, days I wish I just vanished. And during those times, only a few stood by me. But many who you see with me now-they were just “THEM.” But now as I keep swimming, they are registering themselves as some sweet acquaintances of mine.
I won’t even make this article a long one, and given a question for what is that one thing we should always keep in mind while we walk through life ? BE A TOURIST. Remember how tourists act. You will see them bring nothing-except passports, camera and money. Love them-they will take a pic of you. Or hate them-they will still take a pic with you to share back home. Surprise them - they will still take a pic with you. Talk to them - they will still take a pic with you.
See! I am trying to say something very simple here! You can grace this planet as a tourist, many will hate you, less will love you, life will surprise you and least will try to talk to you. All you have to keep in mind is that of what the tourist has, TAKE A PIC AND LEAVE. Because you know why? There is nothing more important than memories - be it bad or good. And the only reason why I am saying this is because, PEOPLE DON’T ACTUALLY CARE.
