We need that simplicity to balance out the complexities that face us. Life is difficult enough without keeping what we can easy.
For me, that's how friendship basically goes.
It's black & white as to who I will call my friend.
If I don't like you, I won't talk to you.
Real simple huh?
I don't feel the need to troll you, or ask about your business, or forge some fake friendship. I just won't engage with you.
I choose to spend that energy elsewhere.
The thing about friendship, to me, is I don't do anything without meaning.
I don't speak and share information, or offer help, or tell you what I think about you if I don't mean it.
I know what I am unfiltered which means I have a huge case of foot in mouth syndrome. That I don't think before I speak. I can tell you that while sometimes my words may unintentionally hurt, and that my actions may seem distant and calloused, that it's more of a lack in my own confidence. It's me and my faults. My issues.
That if I don't like you, if I want to upset you, I'm pretty direct about it.
It's who I am.
So to those I have shared words with, written or spoken, please know that they do come from my heart. Emotion doesn't show on my exterior much, but it doesn't mean it isn't felt on the interior.
I offer help because I want to help.
I tell you what you mean to me, what I like about you, because I want you to know.
I'm vague because I struggle a lot. Daily. It's not meant to offend, it's because I am realising more and more I can be quite fickle and I don't like to break promises.
I mean what I say and I say what I mean.
You read into that how you like. It doesn't mean your interpretation is right.
Oh, and I make inappropriate jokes. A lot.
I don't like to live life by half measures.
Who are you as a friend?
Do you think there are things that can be black & white in this colourful world?
