I was thinking about the conversation my father and I had a few days ago when he was driving me to work. Amongst other things, he was basically saying that everyone in the world has some sort of problem. Some have “bigger” problems, while others may not have anything that they see as a problem currently, but they have had problems in the past or will in the future.
When I go about my business at school and such, it kind of makes me sad to see the problems (unneccesary ones) that people put themselves through. People that I’ve grown to really like and that I look up to in terms of their work ethics and determination are the ones doing the silliest things! It’s in my nature to be the person who is “there” for everyone, and yet I often find myself alone when it comes to these same people who rely so heavily on me.
I’m not saying that I will not be a friend to others. Quite the opposite, in fact. I guess I just don’t like being put int he middle of a disagreement between two or more people that I consider friends. It doesn’t matter if you’re 8 or 80. There will always be some sort of drama as long as there are people around. Ah well. I just know that I’m not going to physically stress myself out over the small stuff.
