Black and white might be great for pictures, but as for everything else going on in life, you shouldn’t categorize stuff in either or nor neither nor. There are far too many aspects to take into account whether it be regarding a person, a matter you’re dealing with or why not regarding who you’re voting for (hint, hint all my US friends) for you to be able to simply blurt out “I don’t like him/her/that”. Before actually deciding on matters in your life you NEED to have your background checks done as well as your history books read through thoroughly to have your facts straight!
Why do I stress this so much? Well, to be honest, I’m quite narrow minded. And I do need to emphasize that I’ve really been trying to widen my horizon quite a bit, but I can still be quite judgemental. That’s by no means anything I’m proud of, but that’s a work in progress and I’m getting better and better at it too. It’s not like I will ever be that stoned hippie who loves everyone and everything out there, but my acceptance will be greater and with that I will be a greater person.
I admit I’ve condemned a lot of things and people in the past and quickly removed them from my inner circle of friends and things I enjoy doing if they weren’t “suitable” for a specific lifestyle or social status. I’m still very aware of what I do and who I engage with, but as to superficial and even artificial attributes such as social status, I’ve given it up completely. Or no, I haven’t given it up, but before I decide if I like or dislike something I do a thorough background check which isn’t as bureaucratic as it sounds. It basically is as easy as asking myself the question “is this relationship something that benefits us both?”. If the answer to that is yes, no matter what the benefit, I usually stick to my gut instinct and find out more about the person until proven wrong. If the answer is no, then why waste both of our time doing something we apparently won’t benefit on whether it being on a personal or a professional level?
So what am I actually saying here? That I’m an arrogant and narrow minded little twat? Well, I can say I was something close to that in the past, but I’m not one anymore. My journey in life has taken me into a place where I’m actually humble, loving and a person who welcomes new friendships with open arms. So if you feel like getting to know me better, keep reading my blog or why not write me a nice little letter! (If someone sends me a hand written letter I’ll marry you, whoever you are, as I LOVE letters!)
