Runaway Words: Shadows Cast

It’s funny how you think you understand how a person feels when you do something, but never truly understand until it’s done to you.

It’s a very painful thing to have a person doubt you when that person is meant to be the one that has your back in difficult situations.

I use a Sony Xperia S… homeboy just sat beside me on the bus waving an Xperia Z… I feel like punching him and trading phones. -_-

And what exactly is the big deal with this Suits show? My flatmates have been on about it for years… Twitter seems to be crazy about it, now this chic on the bus is watching it on her phone. Ah well…

And sometimes, we don’t do it on purpose. We find ourselves looking patterns from the past, and extrapolating to what would most likely happen. Sometimes it’s just easier to point out what’s wrong with the person’s plan than to actually ask “Ok, how do you plan to make this work? Let’s figure it out.”

But the truth is, anybody can cast shadows and doubts. Anybody can poke holes in plans or tell him/her what exactly is wrong with what (s)he wants to do or how (s)he did the wrong thing. But with one person? Sometimes all that’s needed is support. Unflinching support. The simple knowledge that however this turns out, (s)he’s going to be right there with you, trying to figure it out.

(S)He could be anyone; your friends, parents, significant other… whoever…

I don’t know… I guess it took one offhand “yeah right”, to make me truly understand this morning.

Y’all have a good day.

    I don’t have enough exclamation marks for this post. Echoes my thoughts exactly. It’s almost heartbreaking when the one person who’s supposed to get you is the one casting doubts. I do understand that there may be loopholes in my plans, I get that my ideas may come across as overly lofty (if there’s anything like that), but it wouldn’t hurt if you actually tried to hear me out and sit with me to work it out rather than fling it out the window. Even if no one else gets it, you should!
    P.S. Suits is worth the hype, me thinks 😀
