Friendship under the surface

Elimination is part of selection, so when you pick friends , you will also reject some candidates, because they are not accord your standards. Sounds cruel, but it doesn't mean you are antisocial. We are not obligated to give hand to everybody, to support anyone and to hug every person in this world. If you are picky, you will say gently NO, and every wise person will accept this choice.
Marianne had few good friends and she shared all her secrets and problems with them. That were people from her childhood and she trusted them, because she knew them for a many years. She was cautious girl, and kind of person who will not let anyone in her life. When her roommate from office, Emily, wanted to get close with her, Marianne was formal and she rejected her invitation to birthday party. Marianne said : "We work together, we disagreed at some projects, and i don't think it would be wise that we involve as friends." Emily was furious and called her cocky bitch, so she did not want to talk with her for a month.

When you pick your mates, buddies, palls, you made a choice. You will open door for some people, and that door will be closed and locked for other people. 

Here are some misleads about picky people.

They are cocky, pretentious or rude.

Just because someone don't want your company, it doesn't mean that person is cocky. You are just not accord his standards.

They are antisocial.

Picky people are not lonely . They prefer company of people they chose.

They like to hurt others.

If someone rejects you, this is not in bad intention. If you feel that your heart is broken because someone doesn't accept you, learn to respect other choices.

They are egoists.

Picky people are not selfish. They are honest and open. It is better that you know when someone doesn't want you at first sight. At least you are not victim of hypocrisy in this case.

Good example about selection is visible in virtual world. I believe that many of you get many friend request from Facebook, google plus and other social networks, but you will not accept all. Facebook has limitation about 5000 friends.

So, what happens when you reject friend invitation at internet?

Person sent message in another inbox, with complaint that you are bad. Now you need block option.

Person gossips you in front of other people that you are antisocial.

Person create new profile and try to add you again.

Nobody is obligated to accept everyone and to hang with everybody , because friendship is spontaneous act. We don't choose people who will work with us, but we have right to choose friends in real life and virtual space. 

Here is also another part of story. Some people will accept everyone because they want to avoid judgement and they want to promote themselves as friends of everybody. "Look at Sam, he is an angel,everybody likes him." This is deception, because if someone considers you as friend , it doesn't mean that you will get devotion, loyalty and respect.

Sally and Monica were class mates and they learnt together for exams, but when Monica organised weekend party at her house, she did not invite Sally. Her explanation was : "Sally is nerd and she would be party breaker. She is dull girl with glasses."

So, what is more fair, rejection or fake friendship? Rejection will make short pains, but hypocrisy will cause deeper scarves. You believed that she likes you, but at the end it was just pretending, she had mask of best friend? This was not surprise, because if you wanted to badly that someone likes you, you did not have much choice to this person. Your persistent attempts caused this. Fair person would say no, and person who wears mask will choose to wear mask. 

Indeed, hypocrisy is rejection from background, just not everyone is able to see this. Scratch under this surface and you will see real image.

Women are not weak as they look

Where is a fight, there is love. Since childhood opposite genders tease each other, make conflicts and argue, just to compare their mental strength. Men are strong gender by nature, but many of them underestimate woman’s will and character. Some judgments define a woman as fragile, sensitive creature, and the man who is educated in the traditional family will often underestimate a woman. He will see the weak creature in the corner with a face full of tears. Well, a woman can defend herself in thousand ways. She will seduce you to obey you. She will pretend weakness just to take revenge on you if you humiliate her. Be ready for her trick as on poker table. Especially men who are used to silent, obedient woman can’t count on such resistance. Remember, the woman is the one who is working and clean house after work, carry for kids and for your laundry and your meal. Women are multi-tasking, so how can they be weak? When you fall in love with a woman who can care for herself, she doesn’t …

Are you the hunter or the kill?

Criticism is a sensitive field. It is easy to give critics, to mock someone, but it is not easy to receive this in return and to make a joke by yourself. Do you laugh at yourself, in public? Do you allow friends to tease you, even this means that they will overrate your faults and make your values smaller? There is a thin line between social clown and person who loves to make jokes about yourself. If you are a hunter, if you respect yourself, you will allow the certain dose of criticism but you will not be a doormat. If you ask me to whom you must be grateful, maybe my answer will surprise you. Yes, i am grateful to my parents because they give me motivation, strong will, and attitude. I am grateful to my sister because she stood on my side when i felt miserable. I am grateful to my husband for accepting me as i am, even when i was the worst nightmare. Mostly, i am grateful to my rivals, to develop my strength. As i passed my initiation, faced with many troubles and get out from bigg…

Are you grateful for the things you have ?

Are you grateful for the things you have in your life? I don’t think about furniture or new plates, i think about your private and professional life. Sometimes, we forget to save gratitude in our heart because our mind is too busy by dreaming about something we still did not realize. Gradation looks like this: I don’t have boyfriend. I have boyfriend but we are not married. We are married but we don’t have kids. We have only one child. Our kid is not obedient, we have problematic teenager.
In professional plan, we can use same pattern: I am studying and i don’t have job. I have job but my salary is small. I have good salary but i have no free time. I have job but my boss is dictator. It is about human nature, where all are rivals, competitors and opponents. Why your neighbor owe expensive car, and you are going at work with bus? Why your kids can’t have designers clothes? Why your friend has bigger flat then you? We are dreaming because of our ambitions. It is not bad, i am also ambiti…
