Express yourself

When it comes to “knowing,” everyone seems to have it all figured out. But people rarely take into account that our “knowing” is a mere reflection of who we are and what we have experienced day in and day out. A problem with this is that we, as people, tend to generalize our own feelings and reflect it on the people in front of us. Then when they act differently from what we expected, we automatically get upset. Here is where I emphasize the importance of communication between any two parties. It is not safe to assume that what we believe to be wrong/right, hurtful/innocent, thoughtful/careless is in sync with the person in front of you. Keep in mind that everyone’s life experiences vary from person to person. Even from day to day. What you believe today, you may no longer believe tomorrow. If you intend to act on your feelings, it is important for these feelings to be expressed to those around you so that everyone is on the same page. After all, we’re only human…not mind readers, unfortunately.

Natalie says: Be clear about what you know and be aware of what others don’t.

Sitting at a cafe studying and [part of] the conversation behind me is as follows:

Girl 1: “It’s just that my mom doesn’t trust you”

Girl 2: “I know your parents do not like me, and I see where they are coming from, but I want you to see where I am coming from.”

Girl 1: “No, no..I do.”

Girl 2: “I mean if you want me to say good things about the guy so you can pack your bags and go with him, I will..I mean, I won’t but I will.”

I can’t seem to follow. Maybe I should stick to studying?

Word of the day: Scrupulous – [of a person or process] diligent, thorough, and extremely attentive to detail. OR very concerned for doing wrong.

I was just told, “I just read a word that sounds like something you would like…Scrupulous.”

Does have a nice sound to it. Or am I weird? Either way – USE IT. Capeesh?!

“I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read and all the friends I want to see.” ~ John Burroughs

Is it just me or the weeks are starting to feel like days? Let’s make the most of each day as unfortunately the future is not promised to anyone. It’s a hard task to balance responsibility with some of lifes pleasures, but be sure to manage time wisely. Life is not worth stressing every minute of: It is what it is – it is what you make it.

Random Thought…

Why is it that a large amount of men and women get grossed out by a man having chest hair?? I mean, he’s a man – it’s normal – it’s natural. Shouldn’t we be wierded out if they don’t have hair??

By the way: I am not talking about “beastly” amounts of hair hahaha – this too, like everything else – has its limits!
