Sorry for my lack of posts in the last few months, and certainly lack of posts that are particularly meaningful. I wish I could say that I hadn’t been posted because I was happy again, but alas that is not the case, in fact it is closer to the opposite, I have been unhappy, and have started to lose the motivation to do many things I used to, including uni work, post here, poetry, pretty much most positive things. But I will come onto this later.
“Run and tell all of the angels, this could take all night…”
Of the many things I am meant to be doing currently, I choose to write here. Why, well there are a few reasons, but mainly I guess that writing on here is not university work, which I am actively avoiding currently, does not involve moving (Which things such as fixing Sam’s phone would) and is not scary, for instance I wish to reply to another friend’s blog, which could go a lot more wrong than posting to the internet! (Unlikely, but then fears never had to play by the rules).
How well do we know another person? Take for instance, how well I know Ed, on my course (for those not on my course, he is a friend, we know each others name, talk if we see each other in a lecture, but that is really). By my very description of mine and his relationships, then it is quite clear that I don’t know him very well – that definition is easy to fall upon. I could easily give examples of people who I should know fairly well, but didn’t, people who I should know fairly well, and I believe I do, and people who I thought I should know fairly well, but it turns out I didn’t. I can’t not guarantee thought that I know anyone completely, or even at a high level of completeness – as I have learned, it is very hard to undeniably proof a fact, and as such we can only take what we learn about people on trust. Which is exactly where the whole concept of trust comes in, we choose to believe a person is telling us the truth, and so their words or actions tell us about them. I am not sure exactly where I am going with this, this started on the grounds of people not always seeing everything there is to a person, in both good and bad ways. I guess I am answering the point, by saying that people will make their minds up on you by the words and actions they see, however if you have not broken your moral code (and you’re moral code is ‘good’), then maybe you would not get on too well with someone who judges you harshly for something you did, but do not deserve to be judged harshly for. Secondly, then when judging others, always try to take into mind there may be more to them that you don’t see.
I will leave this post here, as I left and now, don’t wish to return, but hopefully I will complete a part 2 soon.
