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.. :-)
