I've met and talked to a lot of people lately — some old, most new. The thing about being in this social media community is that you meet people often. Lots of them. Some of them can be really nice, while some not so.
And if I could ever list down 'people-watching' as one of my hobbies without coming off as a creep, I totally would. This is definitely not a chunk of words for me to lament about the negative people I've met and how I'd love to shut them out of my life, but more of a reflection or rather, collation of my thoughts in a (not so) coherent manner.
I like people-watching, albeit in the most decent manner you can imagine. I like observing how human beings interact with each other — on public transport, in eating places, everywhere. Social interaction intrigues me. I like observing the way people interact and communicate with each other, verbally or physically, and sometimes I do secretly put myself in their shoes and try to imagine what it is like being the individual they are. "What's their lifestyle like?" "What do they view other individuals as?" — these are some questions that pop up in my head as I observe.
And also, whenever I meet nice people (yes, I've mostly met nice people and I'm so thankful for it), I really wonder how they manage to channel all their positive energy to making others happy and comfortable, some at the risk of their own happiness. I'm definitely not one of those "I'd do anything for anyone as long as they're happy" – and I do believe everyone's selfish to some extent. What I'm curious about is how do they actually learn to sacrifice their own happiness for others'? One thing for sure, is that I could never be as selfless as they are.
Either way, I just wanted to sincerely say thank you to the nice people whom I've met. I'm most definitely not the friendliest or outgoing person ever, but I try to be.
On a side note, I apologize for this lengthy post that probably wasn't really coherent.
