What’s the importance of being able to socialize? Is it to get friends, or people who only act like your friend until they find something better? Everyone says the world of business requires you to be social. But the honest truth is that they don’t know everyone in the business world is ready to screw each other over.
Sure not all people in business are going to screw you over, and you may even find a friendship like you never had before, but the world of business is still ready to stab you in the back any time of the day, any time of the year.
I think it’s better to have one good friend and many close friends.
imagine liking someone who:
- wasn’t out of your league
- wasn’t miles away
- was single
- actually liked you
It’s time for a completely irrelevant paragraph to the title.
"To be loved, to be loved, what more could you ask for?" A line from an old song says. (About a Girl by The Academy is…) Is love really the greatest thing you could have? What about family, and all the other things that come after love? If you love a girl (or a guy) so much you two get married and have kids, is that it? Is love just about finding that one person who will be there through all your hardships in life? If that’s the case, answer me this. If you love your mate so much, then why do you bring him or her into your life and have them go through your hardships with you?
Here’s an example: Two people meet in a coffee shop, the guy approaches the girl and talks to her. They hit it off nicely. Their relationship of being just strangers evolve in to friendship, which evolves into a dating relationship. Two years later, the guy asks the girl to marry him. The girl says yes. They marry and live happily ever after.
Or at least that’s what you think.
Fast forward to present day. They have a 17 year old son who they’re not particularly proud of, but he has his moments. The 17 year old son is not particularly smart, nor very athletic. In fact, he gets average grades in school and the only sport that he can play is tennis. Being the sensitive guy that he is, the guy who is now the father, is very sensitive to his son’s actions, and he lets it affect his work ethic and productivity.
One day, his son comes home and tells him “dad, chemistry is just not working out.” He tries to help him with chemistry, but he’s not good at chemistry either. Like father like son, right? Fast forward a couple of weeks, his son comes home from a tennis tournament. He lost in the second round.
The dad reacts to this and starts to blame himself. He’s not good at chemistry, so he can’t help his son, and he’s not a tennis player, so he can’t help train him to get him better. He then starts to question all the major life questions he made in his life. Only to become more and more gloomy and depressed.
This is all the while when the love of his life is trying to pull it together by herself, the family, the son’s work ethic, the son’s tennis. This is the same woman who said “I do.” to the man. The same woman who the dad promised a life of happiness and hope to. The same woman who did nothing to put herself in the family’s aura of depressing situations.
Sure, life is not fair, and we all have difficult times in our lives, but is it really worth it, to find and fall in love with a girl, and promise her the world, only to find that nothing but hardships come to your way?
Damn girl you do it well.
