As I have aged I have become extremely picky about who surrounds me. I wish I had been able to see into the future as I would have made some big changes in some of the people I allowed to get close. I find that people can disappoint easily. I am not one of those people who expects my friend to remember birthdays or do me favors or go out of their way in any way. I appreciate people who just want to enjoy each others company no strings attached.
I am turned off by people who expect! Expect things to go a certain way. Expect friends to remember. Expect favors of all kinds because of the “friendship” label. Friendship for me is a sharing of thoughts and ideas, enjoying moments together and being able to connect because of similar values or interests or inspiration. No expectations. Just happiness to be in each others company.
I run from conflict, anger, jealousy, undermining and gossiping. A dark heart is something I refuse to waste time on.
All I want in life is to be lifted up by positive energy. I want to fill my days with rainbows and sunshine and skipping and daisies. I want the fairy tale. Maybe I’m a bit delusional or too hopeful or simply naive in what I am looking for in my life, but here’s the funny thing, I think I’ve nailed it. Mostly I’m there, skipping and laughing and smelling pretty flowers. I’m content and living in the fairy tale with ease.
