Six in the evening . College is done. I have my laptop in front of me , I’m listening to system of a down . I am surrounded by people , all cracking jokes and generally acting very jovial, like all people should . I technically am social , but this doesn’t exactly count , eh ?
Spent the last ninety minutes alternating between watching Fyneman lectures and Jiddu Krishnamurthi interviews . I ended up remembering a lot . I ended up remembering how many people came into my life and walked out of my life . How they broke me into shards of glass , and how I picked myself up and glued myself back together . I remembered people who were by my side for their own selfish reasons , and people who were by my side even tough they had nothing to gain .
How they changed my perception about things , how they influenced me , how they moulded and shaped me , how they made me do things I wouldn’t have done otherwise .
To all of these people , thank you . If it weren’t for you , I wouldn’t be the person that I was now .
Thank you for teaching me when and how to trust people , and when to not .
Thank you for making me strong enough to deal with things .
Thank you for teaching me how to identify people who would really care .
Thank you for making me observant enough to discern among things .
Thank you for making me believe the fact that the bad times will pass , and the good times are yet to come .
Thank you for being mean as fuck to me .
Thank you . You made me strong . 🙂
