Cliques and the fake self image that most people tend to project


Most people characterize me as a “bitch” simply because I speak my mind and refuse to adhere to anyone else’s definition of me. Okay, now that sounds so much like something that would land on my friendster account, but I’m serious here.

I am not a bitch but I do speak my mind and I refuse to adhere to anyone else’s definition of me. Big difference right? If you treat me with respect, I respond with the same respect. If you treat me badly, I do not retaliate; instead I shy away and ignore the whole damn issue. I cannot please everyone, so I make do with the people that I CAN please. That’s not exactly rocket science.

Thing is, I like being nice to people and I LOVE making people happy. It’s just something in me that clicks when people are happy. It’s like a natural drug. Everything seems lighter when everyone is happy and no one is being a grinch. It’s so much easier that way. I mean, we all have our own stuff to deal with; being mean to other people or being grumpy all the time won’t exactly fix anything. Being with other people should be fun and not a chore. What’s the whole point of trying to deal with people when you’re not having fun?

It’s all about respect though. When you don’t like a person doesn’t mean you totally have to be mean to them. If they talk to you, that’s fine, if not, that’s fine too. Damn if you do, damn if you don’t.

This is the reason why I don’t get why people perceive me as fake or a bitch. I don’t think I’m fake, I just believe that everyone has something to say and everyone has the right to be treated with respect.

I don’t think I can go around sneering at people all the time. I would just rather not talk about it.

And what the heck is it about cliques? We’re in college already. I will hang out with whomever I want to hang out with. College is all about meeting new people and being constrained in one group is not the way to go about it.

I swear I just hope that people would get a life and grow up. It would do them good.

Heck, it would do EVERYONE good.

Remember Live and Let Live?

It works;)
