I see a side of me I never saw before. Blunt honesty, take it or leave it. Its true that pain makes you stronger, and unfortunately it has made me harder. Until last year, I would never be able to say no. I was never able to be truly honest, just “in case” I might hurt someone’s feelings. But can you live your whole life going along to what everyone else says and doing things on their terms? No, you come to a point in your life where you realise that it is imperative that you find a balance. I will never (or at least I try not to) deliberately hurt someone’s feelings, but there are times when you just get fed up. 

It seems that people always misunderstood me. During my school days and even among certain family members, I was thought to be arrogant and full of myself. Wrong. I was an introvert and shy, finding it more comfortable to keep to myself. Guys used to, and still do think that I like to play hard to get. But the truth is that I am just very honest and upfront. Why do people take things the wrong way? Why do they misconstrue the reality? 

I’ve realised it later than I should have, but you can’t please everyone. Neither can you have everyone like you. You win some and you lose some. Its all part of the deal of life. I’d be lying if I said that I don’t care completely (I still have a heart), but there’s only so much you can do…
