Human, after all...

As she sat in the coffee shop listening to the conversation, she wondered how she had ever become part of this group.. of late, she was trying to avoid them, but she couldnt be too obvious about it.. at present they were all she had..But the sweet syrupy camaraderie sickened her.. because she knew all the backbiting and tale telling that happened simultaneously within the group, not just about the others, but about people within the group too..
she had become part of the group because she thought they were genuinely different from her previous group of friends..but over a period of time she realised that all said and done, they were all the same within...she was one of the first members of this group, and all the members were personally known to her, for she was the person who brought them in, but she wondered whether any of them would understand if she tried to discuss this with them..
therefore she decided not to say anything, but gradually move out without too much fuss, and find another set who would be her kind of people, and this time she would be a little more careful about choosing the crowd..but damn, she thought, bloggers were supposed to be different!!
until next time, what exactly is 'different'?

Your environment mirrors your being. Change thyself and watch thy environment respond.

The world is made up of all kinds of people, but they react to each other differently. "She" may be a bitch with one and a cherub with another. Our state of being makes other people respond in certain ways to us. Thus if one lives in a state of anger, one invites anger, and if one lives in a state of love, one invites love.

This is not my usual gyan, but my experience talking. I have seen my share of bitching, but lately, poof, its gone. Could it be a coincidence that I'm at peace within myself too?

Parii said...

But on a more frivolous note, who is J and Rapunzel? ;-))

Deez said...

NEW is DIFFERENT. after a while most things become the same and boring.....(just a thought)

manuscrypts said...

ink spill: but she had to learn it all over again..

elixir: meanie :D

manuscrypts said...

stone: and some groups we are part of, for life..

manuscrypts said...

vanilla: possibly, but with groups shdnt it be more permanent??

Elixir said...

Parii said...

manuscrypts said...

ideasmith: hehe... :)

erratica: relax, thats normal..lol

manuscrypts said...

aekta: sometimes even if 'one invites love' invitations are not accepted.. and as for bangalore roads, even if one tries this theory and is a 'nice guy' on the road, by experience, have found that it doesnt work...:)
