Thought provoking.. [2]

"Someone, who cannot accept you at your WORST, has no rights to be with you at your BEST.."

Very thought provoking, isn't it? Thats what I thought when I read this line in one of the forward SMS that I got recently.

One of the things I have always experienced in my life is, when you are travelling through dark side of your life, there would be very few who stays with you. However during your good times, a crowd will always be around you.

Two things are likely to happen during your worst times:

  • you isolate yourself from the outside world because you feel dejected, low in spirit, depressed and want to be alone until you pass through the painful times.
  • you are isolated by others because you are not happy enough to be with.

The former is more pitiful. The latter is more painful. Especially if others give up on you when you are desperately in need of some support, it is difficult to take it. It hurts a lot. If someone doesn't want to be with you when you are going through difficult times and facing painful survival, they don't have any rights to be with you during your good times. If someone cannot accept you as the way you are, they don't have any rights to be with you when you exhibit behaviors that they like.

Rest I leave it to you to think of your own.. :-)

Good guy to bad guy!!

People feel very happy if you give them everything as "ya, take it". The moment you say, "no, its not yours, please keep it down", they are unhappy. Not just unhappy but they get angry and they want to take revenge that you didn't give them. It doesn't matter to them as to whom something belongs to. It doesn't matter to them as what kind of situation the other person is in. It doesn't matter to them whether or not what they ask for is needed by other person. It doesn't matter to them that they are asking for too much. What matter to them is whether or not they can have it.

They praise you as a nice person, if you are generous enough to say "yes" to all of their demands all the times. The moment they hear a "no" from you, you become the bad guy. All of the sudden you become selfish. My God!! What kind of people are they..??

All they think is, 'what are all yours, is ours and what are all mine is mine'. They want to own something that belongs to us. They want to get paid for our work. They want to take credit for what we do. They don't even feel like asking permission as whether or not to use something that belongs to us. They take our softness for granted. They think that they are smart [or probably they think we are fools]. What the heck!!

Well.. Lets say, "no". If it will be perceived as rude and selfish, so be it! It isn't worth to be soft and kind to those who tries to take advantage of us. Lets teach them some lesson!!

Thought provoking.. [1]

Today I received a forwarded SMS [Short Message Service]. Don't know who wrote it but I liked it very much since it provoked my thoughts..

Strange Facts:
  • There is always a little truth behind every Just Kidding..
  • There is always a little knowledge behind every I Don't Know..
  • There is always a little emotion behind every I Don't Care..
  • There is always a little love behind every I Hate You..
  • There is always a little pain behind every It's OK..
How true these words are.. Aren't they? Especially I liked the last three points. These might seem to be weird but true. I have experienced them. I have seen them in people I meet everyday.

The purpose of this post is to say, 'hear the words being said but listen to the unsaid' :-) 'Obvious' are always heard/seen but the hided emotions behind the words are missed most of the times. If you really care, pay close attention to what is not said. If you say 'I don't care', I know that there is a little emotion behind it :-)
