I really don't like hard questions, do you?
The ones that make you feel vulnerable & uncertain & maybe even tense.
I much prefer the happy, easy-to-answer ones.
Like what's your favorite movie? Or what do you like to do in your spare time?
Chocolate or vanilla? Red or pink? Roses or tulips?
But sometimes we are faced with hard questions, aren't we?
I've had this question running around in my mind for a couple days now.
I've let it play around and take up space.
I've tried answering it myself in a variety of ways that somehow tend to come up lacking.
So, I thought I'd ask you... I'll whisper it so it doesn't sting so much...
What do you do when you know someone doesn't like you?
Do you shrug it off? Do you say Oh well, no big deal? You win some, you lose some.
Or are you a worrier? A fixer? You want to change it. Find a way to make it work.
Or maybe you turn it on yourself... If I were just more _____ enough, this person would like me. Or if I had just not said _____, then things might be different.
Or maybe you try a combination of all of the above. I think that's what I do. I alternate among not caring to caring too much to trying to fix it to wondering what I could've done differently. Makes you tired, doesn't it?
Appropriately enough, the song in my head right now is Why Can't We Be Friends.
It's kind of a peppy little ditty.
I'd like to think that we all could be friends. No matter what our preferences or hobbies or skin color or political leanings are. Differences keep us interesting. I would love for them to unite us instead of tear us apart. I promise I didn't steal that last line from Hallmark... or a Bette Midler song.
This question was not brought about by any certain events, nor is it a shameless plug for praise.
More like a pondering of the heart. And I'm really just curious. What do you do?
Any blog post is better to me with pictures... kind of like a children's book.
So here's one for good measure.
really, it's just a mural in a local Mexican restaurant, but I'd like to think they're friends.
one of my favorite movies is Cinderella Man
i enjoy reading & writing in my spare time
i like chocolate and vanilla
red over pink almost always
and when it comes to flowers, hydrangeas are my fav
your turn... feel free to answer the hard & the easy... or none at all...
