The people who are not what they first seem to be.
In all walks of life the human race hides behind a veil of pretence. We all met
them and even at times we perhaps ourselves have used this shield to prevent
others getting to close. For some it’s to hide a hurt a fear or even because
they find it hard to commit.
I myself at times feel that I am a people pleaser I don’t like to say No neither
do I like to intentionally upset anyone. Paulo Coelho the other day mentioned
on a site that people who say maybe really want to say No but are afraid to
commit. I was not sure what I was afraid to commit to but often I don’t or
can’t really be bothered to do something and I end up doing it any way. Perhaps
it’s the case I should ask will this affect or have an impact if I do or don’t.
This point struck home with me that am probably why I have great respect and admiration not only for him as an author but as a man and mentor too.
I was going though some of my own thoughts in my head I do this occasionally when a link strikes
home and I came to the conclusion that some people will tell you anything to
get A. A reaction and B. If they feel by humouring you or pretending to be
interested in what your doing for self gain. If you’re naive you will think it’s
because you are making them think. Now the question here is you may find out
that really it was all talk.
Or even that a remark you made and you thought was true they had in fact lied or just left the information hoping you would not ask out right.
So my suggestion are don’t believe what you hear it can an often is watered down
or even changed like Chinese whispers.
Real friends you know deep down would not let you down.
Read the small print lots of us get caught out by the gift of the gab. The free gift
which is not really free Along with the promise of better things to come if you
If someone you just met asks to borrow money remember your old grannies say never a lender or borrower be.
Trust you gut it never really lets you down.
Don’t rush to do something you’re not sure about unhappy about the result or you would be worried if it turned out bad.
Now to end this on a positive note you have to kiss a few frogs before you find a
real prince. That real friends are measure by not what can do for them but what
they do for you with out asking. And you can’t make a silk purse out of a sours
