From now on, I’ll no longer hold back what I truly feel about people, about their attitudes to me, and to things in general. I’ll give them a piece of my mind since people do that anyway. Why should I give certain people the ego boost all the time even though they clearly don’t deserve it, why should I make people feel good about themselves when the favour is not returned? From now on, not only will I be honest to myself, I will be honest to others too. But then again, this quality that I’m about to relinquish is my only saving grace, people like being with me solely because of this – because I don’t criticize, not severely no, and I certainly do not comment on how they should act, even though there are times when their demeanors annoy me, but just a bit, because I try not to care – I give them the liberty to do whatever they wish to do, simply because I want to be returned the same favor. On this note, I believe everything is conditional, love is even more so, in fact. I help people with their problems, I shower people with compliments from time to time in the hopes of alleviating their weariness after a long day and simply making them feel good about themselves, I don’t give my two cents on how they should act and I certainly don’t tell them frankly how I feel, simply because I don’t want to be given the same treatment. But now I realised, doing good to others doesn’t mean you’ll be done good to. Obviously I’m not going to turn into a nasty person overnight, I’m just going to be gradually less submissive and I’ll learn how to say ‘no’ to requests for favours, and I’ll soon learn and master the art of pioritising people who mean something to me, who would, even on occasion, return the same favour.
