When it actually comes to being useful to those around you I feel there are two kinds of people in this world. Those that can actually make a positive difference in your life with kind words, moral support and genuinely try to help you and the others who claim that they know everything (when they don’t) and think that they help you while blabbering hours together about what you should and shouldn’t do and don’t really help you at all! I hate this second category and sometimes I just wish I could do away with such folks. But the journey of life is such that these people get rammed down your neck whether you like it or not and you just can’t tell them off [especially when you are related 😦 ]
The best escape mechanism I have come up with is avoidance! If I think that these people don’t exist then they don’t! Call it living in denial!! A single phone call from folks like this can spoil you entire day and since I decided that I won’t have more days in my life ruined I avoid such calls 🙂 I prefer to read my books, do my sketches, listen to music and basically do everything which in “their” opinion means wasting my life! How do you deal with problem cases like this? Is my way the best way or do you have something better?? Do let me know – Your thoughts could prove to be extremely useful.
