The other day I wrote a post about how our lives are storybooks that we write for ourselves and that it’s a story book life that we live in. Then I came across this quote and knew I was going to use it as part of the Ultimate Blog Challenge.
And just as started to write this post, a scene from CSI stood out at me .. the gist of it was in reference to 'wondering how many people out there share the same name as us but live an entirely different life to us’ and ‘would you ever cross paths with them to form your story’
There are some people who are always going to be in your life .. you know it, they know it, your gut knows it. Then are there are the ‘seasonal’ people who come and go just like the seasons in the year. Then there are people who you think and believe you have some sort of rapport or relationship with (doesn’t mean romantic) and over time you come to realize that what you have is either one sided or semi-superficial.
Whilst talking to my girl AD the other day – she asked me (or rather told me) why would I give such superficial people any importance by even discussing them … and my answer was that it’s not their behaviour that bothers me but more the half-hearted (actually half assed) phone calls / texts that say they can’t wait to see you or meet up but of course it never happens. That’s what irritates me. Just don’t bother if you don’t mean it right ? If it matters enough, then make the time otherwise don’t just say something you think you should be saying.
Over the past few months I’ve come to learn a lot about some of the people I thought I knew .. and they aren’t the people I thought them to be. They aren’t bad people – we’re just on different tangents or wavelengths and I guess our respective parts in each others stories have to come to an end. At first I thought there might be a sense of loss – but in reality there is no room for regret and I got to learn something about the expectation levels I have of those around me.
