A Little Perspective

Super Glue

Alright I've been slacking on the blog...but in my defense I haven't felt like saying a whole lot. But maybe I do, we'll see. Firstly, I've been hanging out with the Jeru Crew alot lately. Temple trips, camping outings, movie dates, filming stints...you name it we've done it. I love being around them and having this new pool of friends, but sometimes I feel a little stuck. Trying to merge two parts of yourself together can be difficult. It's good for me though.

Now for the subject of conversation. Have you ever met somebody you knew was going to be a problem? Seriuosly though, from day one you know that this person is going to create problems. It's like they're super glue, and you know very well that if you get too close you'll be stuck. So you avoid it. You sit and watch everyone else get stuck to the glue, and they don't realize that the super glue isn't that great until they're already stuck. But no matter how hard you try, you still get sucked in. You're stuck. Stupid glue.

Something that's really been bugging me lately as well (ok let's be honest, it's related to the super glue) is how manipulative some people are. Why do people think it's okay to say and do things they don't really mean, just to satisfy their own vanity and insecurities? I hate fakers. Is it so hard to just be yourself? So you might not be everyone's favorite person, but at least you're you. The biggest joke is that fakers usually just end up cheating themselves.

Yep, I know exactly what you mean. I didn't get stuck to the glue, but sometimes, years later, I find myself thinking that maybe I should have . . . after all, why didn't so many other friends see what I saw? Maybe I wasn't forgiving enough? No idea . . .

I'm not sure what brought on your rant, but I totally agree. I hate being in those situations, so I hope you get out of it soon!
