The participants in our life
There are some people who come into your life to teach you not to be so naïve. Not everyone is as kind-hearted and selfless as you think. And certainly not everyone wants the best for you.
There are those people who slyly stand by your side, simply to be first in learning all the gossip of your personal life, to gloat on how they’re doing better. They are the ones who feign support, but are the first to leave when they no longer have anything to draw from you. They are also the ones who stick with the ‘other side’, the one they know how badly they treated you and even accused them of it. People like these are the epitome of hypocrisy. And after the initial anger and frustration passes, you realise you’re better off without them, without their toxicity.
But there are other people who are the exact opposite. They are there even when you don’t need them. Silently offering their presence as a soothing element in your life. They are the ones you know will always do their best to help out whenever you need it and for whatever reason. They are the people you long to hear at the end of the day to embark on long conversations on how your respective days went. To exchange advise and reflect on your actions. The ones you share random thoughts with. The ones you want to share good news with because you know they’ll be genuinely happy for you and not want to undermine you for evolving into a better version of you. They are the ones who share your brightness and who help you sparkle a bit more.
There are people in your life you don’t want to lose, because they add value to everything you are and want to accomplish. And there are others whom you sometimes wish you never met.
People appear in our lives because each have their own interests. They stay or go according to your decision too.
You shouldn’t allow anyone to bring you down, simply because they can’t stand you beaming higher.
