Stories & Reflections
You may see someone who smiles all the time and does silly things but you have no idea what he is going through or what burden he carries within. People are so judgmental and you have to deal with them every single day; you must pretend that everything is fine, otherwise they are going to “delve into” info in order to learn what is going on by simply asking questions (not that they are interested in how you feel but because they want to gossip about it).
Indeed, it is really annoying, due to the fact that people do not give a f*** about you. This is just how human nature works. Personally, I do not want to give explanations to nosy people or to those with whom I work – It does not mean that we are friends because we happen to work at the same place– I know how to deal with my own problems and “demons”. As a person, I have a different perspective and angle for life; I am different from the others and so I see things with my own “theories”. I like to stay at home, watching the stars above and talking to myself without hearing any annoying voices or sounds. This is really nice, because you can handle “situations” that you are going through and work them over in your mind. Let’s say it is just like doing “self-therapy”, which I find really effective. You should give it a shot! You learn to ignore the negative vibes and focus on your problems. You may not find the solution right away, but you will feel much better.
Talking to yourself, it is not madness because it is the way we talk to God. He knows why you have to deal with this problem but you have to be patient. Everything has something to teach us and with His help you will find the way out. Think positive and be yourself no matter what. Do not forget that you are unique and you have to stay strong, move on and focus on your target.
TIP: When nosy people try to learn something about you by persistently asking questions, do not pretend that everything is fine just breathe and let it go. Do not give them the pleasure to find out the truth, just smile at them and let them imagine whatever they want. (At the end of the day, they are going to gossip about you, anyway!)
