Some poetry for you guys:
She walks down the hall on her own,
Hearing quiet whispers
She pretends she doesn’t hear them
Even though her ears burn
She replays all the things she heard
Like a song in her head
She plays a song,
Her wrist the violin
Every stroke she makes with her bow
The more numb she gets
Scars her for eternity
But a reminder, she survived
This song can be interpreted in many different ways. As so, there is still one line from this song that stands out:
“Ain’t it fun, living in the real world?”
It is in the chorus so therefore is repeated quite a few times. Haley Williams, the singer, is saying this in a sarcastic tone because the world is not all fun and games anymore. It’s the truth about reality.
Some people have it all made, since the start. They never had to struggle. Everything was taken care of for them. Not an ounce of stress on their shoulders and doing what they please. This may seem like its the “ideal” way of living but it doesn’t teach any lessons. It doesn’t allow room for mistakes. It just doesn’t mean anything at all. They spend their life cooped up in a false reality. They are living a life of selfishness and doesn’t give anyone a second thought. Those type pf people need to know that there are 8 billion other people in this world too and that those people aren’t just there to make their life easier. When they finally experience the real world, they see that the world doesn’t revolve around them anymore. When the going gets tough, the tough gets going.
Essentially, everyone has to grow up and make their own decisions.We each have to be our own individual and not entirely depend on others. You can try and avoid life, but soon it catches up to you. To be independent, you must take risks, make mistakes and learn. No one will be with you every step of the way and no one will be there to fight your battles for you all the time. This is a reminder that THIS is reality and it’s time to wake up from your dream and take responsibility for your actions, your problems, and YOUR life. This is the real world and the world will not wait for you.
I am an introvert first of all. And no, it does not mean I’m anti-social, boring, or a loner. These are probably the stereotypical things that come to people’s minds when they think of introvert. But, they’re wrong. There is a thin line between what I think and what i actually say. Introverts like to socialize with others but just in smaller numbers. They prefer to stay at home and read a nice book they’re really interested in rather than go out partying. They like their own privacy. However, there can be a downside to being an introvert at times. It’s hard to talk to people who you want to get to know. It’s difficult to talk in front of people, let alone crowds of people. People say just to get over it but the thing is, you just can’t get over it. It’s just how we are.
It’s actually quite funny how little, most people in life know about you. They only know what I choose to reveal about myself. They just scratched the surface of who I really am. They don’t know the difference between my interest and my obsessions. They don’t know what books and movies I enjoy. They don’t know what I’ve experienced. They just don’t know. And I kind of prefer it that way because if they were to know the things that I keep from everyone, it’ll give them power. The power of judgment. The power to criticize me and the things I’ve done.
I suppose everyone is an extrovert at birth. Where they have no shame and just let their colors show in the earlier stages in their lives. However, the reality that sets them apart from each other is the experiences that happen to them that lead them to evolving into an introvert.
I’ve shared a piece of me and was shot down. The thing is that if you really want to get to know me, you’d have to keep on digging and digging until you get to a deeper side of me. The side where my true self is. And anyone that is willing to make that effort is someone worth keeping, worth standing by. What I’ve learned is that in order to share a piece of me, I have to really trust that person. This is why I keep to myself when I encounter people. This is why it’s harder for me to talk about myself and show who I really am because I have been stabbed in the back so many times before.
In my eyes, I’m more of a listener. I rather stay quiet and just listen and learn. I am more aware of my surroundings because all I do is observe everything. I see the little details in things instead of the main components.
Probably the best thing about introverts is that if you do get to know one and you get them to feel comfortable with you, they can be the absolute funniest and most enjoyable people to be around. Once they feel comfortable with you, it’s like they’re sharing a secret with you and that secret is their personality.
A good friend knows when to hold you back. A best friend knows when to let you go and unleash the beast from within. Which means that a good friend will be the most “ideal” friend and wants to show that you mean something to them. However, a relationship between best friends is different. They know what they mean to each other already so there is no need for them to show how much they care for each other. The stiff kindness is not necessary. It might sound a bit odd but here’s an example:
You: “How do I look in this?”
Good Friend: “You look really pretty!”
Best Friend: “You look horrible”
As you can see, best friends always say the worst of things but mean it in the kindness of ways. They always make jokes between each other and say the things they don’t mean but the truth of the matter is that they know the other is simply joking around and just say something even meaner. It’s just how it works. That’s how you know when you finally have a best friend. P.S, Lilo & Stitch was my absolute favorite show in the world when I was a kid.
I really love this picture. It’s saying how you should keep your hope high meaning that you should aim for the highest that you can and also keep your head low as in don’t try to be the center of attention. Instead, let the success of your future speak for itself. You don’t need to brag about being successful as long you know that you are.
