“A precision concision exhibition of contrition” I understood little but wow !

A precision concision exhibition of contrition exposition is a mission of the frisson of fission fusion, suggesting suggestion of congestion ingestion as a conception inception deception, wherein therein, words like birds, slicing thirds, dicing curds and whey, of milk silk and the ilk, the Miss Muffett tuffet neither here nor there, hear no swear, to […]

“you can’t cage the wind”, beautiful it took me time to comprehend

Ruth was the kind of person whose voice you had to mine before you heard it. I asked her, “Tell me what happened.” She said, “Do you really want to know?” “No, but some selfish part of me wants you to hear yourself talk about it.” My demons like me alone. They come to me […]

Fake friends

Todays topic is fake friends, have we not all had them ? yes high school brings about a time of insecurities, can we take a minute of silence for those still in high school ?, yes i got you high school people, hold on.

we all have had a fake friend at one point in our lives especially when we thought that being popular was all that mattered, and having friends in that popular circle of friends in school was our life achievement, we wanted to be that it girl and cheerleader, or perhaps you wanted to be that jock football player, well you guessed it right i was a nerd which was not cool, in school i wanted to have friends and be popular, but i just could not discontinue my introverted nature,.

so you probably guessed i had to move on and continue being my unpopular nerd self, that slept at home throughout the weekend, while studying chemistry or watching tv alone obviously, i did not have anywhere to go, so of course i tried making friends in school, i did come across so many fake people that pretend to be your friends sometimes while they really were taking advantage of your kindness.

and yes piece of advice  don’t always be afraid to say no to helping people, i always thought that being unkind towards people was not going to get me friends, lets just say i was too naive for my own good, but towards the end of high school, of course i started improving, but back then i took it upon myself to treat people too kindly by offering up what ever they asked me to help them with.

In essence we all go through that phase in our life but trust me you don’t have to be popular in school, because once high school is over it doesn’t really matter because nobody cares about how popular you were in high school, and lets be real, no shade popular people don’t usually make it later in life, sometimes because of the popularity thing, they don’t study and therefore don’t pass or graduate on time.

Now with all that being said, you don’t really need to be popular, a couple of genuine friends is all that you need, study well and pass with good grades, high school will be over in a few years and that is a very small portion of your life.

Once you realise someone is a fake friend, take them out of your life, because you don’t need that much negativity in your life, the most important thing to know is that you may never see some high school friends again in your lifetime because once you go to college, everything changes as you become more focused on your life or career.

Ofcourse there is also the bullying issue, if you would like me to do a post on bullying comment down below, thank you for reading and

BYe!

Lonely Hearts
Happy souls
A soulful loneliness
Peaceful yet not serene
Joyful not happy
Once upon a happy time
What is happiness?

What is happiness?  I think it depends on the person, every one is different and happiness could mean comfort in life l, a good salary and loving family or it could mean fame and riches, perhaps a yacht, I think happiness is derived from something in most humans,  it could also be derived from contentment with whatever you have In life. Some are happy no matter what and that is contentment.
Bye!!
