People who are cocksure of everything are annoying. Nothing is so certain that it doesn’t allow room for speculation and uncertainty, and that’s a fact.
I was in a situation today that provoked a heated argument. First of all, I don’t like people who are sneaky and discuss someone who isn’t there to defend themselves, it’s cowardly and pointless. But what I dislike even more than that are people who judge what choices other people make, and claim they would never be in a such situation, when they simply don’t know whether or not they would. None of us can look into the future and be absolutely sure that we won’t behave or think completely differently in 5 years time from now. Hell, I’m a living proof that things and people change. I can’t begin to explain the amount of ideas and beliefs that have been shattered, simply because I have lived to experience it, not because I went out of my way for them to change. I’m going to be a little corny and use the old “life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans” because truly that’s the essence of it all. I’m the perfect example of a person who had everything decided 5 years ago, and today nothing is as it was supposed to be, yet I can’t even imagine not being the me that I am today and knowing the things I know today. I couldn’t be happier with the way things turned out, even though there were some rough patches along the way where I wasn’t of the same opinion. People need to stop judging each other and the choices we make, the opinions we have and the paths we follow, because none of us are in each other’s shoes and that alone disqualifies us from having a say.
