A little about myself, I’m a knower. I know things. I have always had an ability, a gift of insight, to read into people’s character. It is more than just a matter of analyzing body language, mannerisms, speech, behaviors, etc…it is an intuition about whether or not a person is positive, negative, secure, adrift, genuine, fake; a tiny glimpse into their hearts and minds.
That being said, this is sometimes quite annoying. It can be difficult to get close to people, difficult to enjoy things at face value, and difficult to give advice. The best example of this is when it comes to giving advice to my friends about things like relationships.
I can spot the bad eggs, even the ones who have groomed themselves so well over the years that they would in the beginning seem sincere. I can also tell when my friends have become so infatuated with people like this that they cannot, and for that matter will not, see the impending danger. It’s annoying to be able to read the writing on the wall, and know that what lies ahead is nothing but future hurt and yet being unable to convince someone otherwise.
More than once has this situation occurred. Boy likes girl, Girl likes Boy, Boy likes Boy, Girl Likes Girl (whatever your cup of tea), only to be later passed up for the next shiny new toy by the other half. This annoys me. To know that this will happen while your friend or what have you is so happy, and to have your warnings fall on deaf ears.
People are not expendable and exploitable that should be treated like rag dolls. Those people that play others for sport are not in fact true people, they are the societal miscreants that give humanity a terrible name. And yet they thrive because of the people that feed into their little scams, willingly…believing in some falsified belief that they are different…that they can “change” the player.
This rant has gotten too long and gone into a tangent. The point is that it sucks to be aware of all of this happening, and yet feeling helpless through it all.
