Hello everyone, It has certainly been a while that's for sure.
I am writing this, because something highly depressing just happened.
Long and short of it, a past friend became angry and allowed themselves to become overwhelmed with negativity and hatred rather then accept that there own actions were the cause of our friendship ending.
Communicating over the internet is hard, especially when there is a language barrier, because you can never really tell what the other person is trying to say, especially if you can barely understand them to begin with. Consequently i do not know if any of my messages were misconstrued, misunderstood, or simply misread and caused the hatred and anger that I was reading...
I decided to unblock them, i felt bad and missed our conversations, but when I did this, the new DA system kicked in and popped up every single time my deviant name was mentioned...
It was sad, it was disheartening and worst of all it came from a person i had hoped to be friends with again.
It will never happen now...and i am very saddened by this.
Lies, hatred, anger, negativity...It never worth it.
The reason I am typing this?
Because I want everyone to read this and realize what one negative action, one negative word when you think no one is looking, or one sad and shameful lie can create.
Your family, your friends, your self...Do you really want to destroy someone, a friendship, your family bonds, or even your own reputation by getting mad? Vindictive? Defensive? Or spiteful?
Or do you want to take a deep breath, look at the situation, and take a step back and calm down long enough to try and see what went wrong? was it personal opinion? lack of respect for the other person? A language issue? Or perhaps even a misunderstanding?
Regardless, do not let anger rule your life. Communicate, try and understand, and always be positive and understanding rather then angry and hateful.
I wish you all a wonderful, happy year of 2014
And I hope to be back to drawing soon!
