Sometimes I wonder, how do I appeal to people I’m talking to. Is my communication skills’ not enough to hold their interest? Am I boring them? Are the stories and information I’m sharing not interesting enough? Do I have something to offer?
Don’t get me wrong. It was never my intention to please everyone. There will just be times you will pause to assess yourself.
We all have different interests, principles and beliefs. One may find it amusing or not. Your insights may be contradicting with them and yet they may openly consider it (well, maybe in a way that makes you interesting). Your stories might be far from their hobbies and possibly, the way you deliver it contributed to your ‘boring’ aspect.
But whatever or however they perceive you is none of your business anymore. Like we have different views in life so as how we view people around us.
If it will help you to improve then go ahead. Change. If you think not, then just let it out of your system. Be reasonably selective.
I once said, we are all meant to wander. We are destined to move and to encounter other people. To enjoy the blessing of company or the lesson of passing through; to taste the happiness of meetings and to savor the last moments of goodbyes.
But there will be times, we will be boggled by questions, How? What if? What happened? Why? Why not? A lot of these will enter your mind. You will entertain few thoughts but after awhile you’ll realize you’re just stressing yourself.
Does it make you happy? Does it make your state better?
And it will just happened, not a realization, but more of acceptance. It is what it is. And sometimes details will not be given and questions will not be answered.
I always think that some people are too valuable that they have to walk on Earth separately to maximize their existence. They are like the Sun and the Moon. They shine too bright together that God decided to set their time differently and place in separate areas to light up other people’s lives. That their souls meet each other maybe not to be together but just to ignite something within for them to realize their purpose, awaken their dreams, know their potentials and remind that they always have greatness within. All for greater good and for a reason.
