When we were younger, we used to think that everyone was just like you and me. (Most of us anyway)
and as we got older, we began to notice differences in people.
And then later, we started to think that hey, these people aren't infalliable after all and we get disillusioned, jaded and etc..

I'd like to think that I've been lucky with friend selections. For the most part, nothing untoward has occurred out of my friendship with anyone bar one now. I used to hear other people saying how their friend betrayed them and etc..

And that occasionally got me thinking...
"What kind of people are these?"

I've been meeting my share of people I can't stand lately. Selfish people, crazy people, paranoid people.. you know the standard.
And I can't believe that they actually think that
1) They are right
2) They can get away with what they're doing.

There's this friend of mine who's going through a period of upheaval. Serious job reconsideration. Moving. Buying a home. Ill mother outstation.
And through this, her sister and brother-in-law for points 2-4, have not offered to help her move. Delayed in the paperwork for buying the house and refused to go back to see her mother on the pretext of being busy but have already been on 2 holiday trips in the past 2 months. Where do they get off being so selfish? I'd seriously hate to see them bring up their kids. I can imagine them being loud, obnoxious and the parents just looking on adoringly with the mindset 'they can do no wrong' - little angels.

How people can find ways to justify themselves and omitting certain facts or embellishing some details to make it seem or that a lot of people agree with their thinking. I think this line of thinking is the reason why IF I'm unsure of something, i'd usually keep quiet about it. Cos I have to be 'always right' :D It'd be interesting to delve into how the human mind works, why need to lie to appear better than they usually are or making it seem like more than 1 other people agree with you to justify your statements. I noted that in moderate amounts last night. :)

I guess everyone just wanna smell like daisies or roses.. which smells better? Aiyah you get the drift...

I think I'll write this one soon.

eh? caught you at that time of the month again? The oh-so 'serious in thought' moment.

I do understand what you're saying. Now that we've surpassed that 'happy-go-lucky- age, we do seem to have a much wider perspective of things (and especially people). My 5 cents worth? Don't give a hoot about them. Don't even fret over them nor let their obnoxious, self centred being frustrate you. In fact, I feel pity for the people you speak of. Yes, I'm afraid I too have discovered people like that. Initially, I got all worked up over it. But in the end, after much thought, why should I even bother trying to be friends or work with these people? There's no point asking why they behave as such. So, all we can do is feel pity for them. Their lives they choose to live. Good riddence, I say. I'm no selfish. I just gave up trying to understand and be kind to such people. I'd rather direct the attention to something that makes me happy.

p/s: Not around on your bday?
