This year, choose people wisely

With each day passed by, you become wise. You see, you hear, you observe, you feel, you learn and you experience. As I always say, your life will be more of people around you. People definitely affect our lives in certain ways. You become sad, mad or happy in reaction to what is happening around you, mainly with the people around you. Some of them are fake and some are just real.

Some people become part of your life for a reason or with particular intention. Most of them won’t be coming with the intention of staying long and always have that excuse for leaving you anytime. Some will just show that they care and value but in real they will step back in your need. Some will make you feel special only until you are new. Some will just use you to kill their boredom. Some will walk with you but won’t invest any emotions. Some will play mind games with you just for fun. Some will ignore you. Some will disrespect you. Some will tease you. Some will hurt you. Some will betray you. Some will make you feel alone. Some will make you feel cry. Some will make you feel bad. Some will make you feel unhappy. And some will just make you feel not important at all.

Over the years I have learned that, people of such kind exist. They live their life with utmost happiness, making yours worst. They make fun of emotions; they enjoy the helplessness; they laugh over sensitivity. Such people don’t just deserve a place in your life. They don’t deserve your attention, your respect and your smile. They don’t deserve your emotions, your care and your love. So, this year let’s kick such people out from our lives and make this year happier than ever.

Bring the people in who neither have any reason to come nor have any to stay in your life except the one that they just want to be a part of your life forever. You will find such people very rare but they exist too. They won’t say but will always stand for you when you need. They won’t show but they will silently care for you. They won’t make you priority but will know your importance. They will respect your emotions and value you. They won’t leave you and never let you feel alone. They will make you happy when you are sad. They will make you smile when you cry. They will listen and make you feel comfortable. They will make sure that you don’t get hurt. They might not show you but they will love. And, they just won’t make you feel less important at all.

Life is all about people, keep your family and friends at first and the rest will be awesome. Keep smiling and spread love.
