The moment I changed my picture a girl that I knew from college immediately started to question my choice as if it was up to her to decide what's fit for me! She started by telling me that I should read something "sexy" and that I'm a freak for reading those depressing tales!
My only mistake was trying to argue with her. Maybe I was ambitious enough to think that I could make her understand the logic behind what I'm saying, or maybe I was bored and needed a good argument (that argument failed to even be rational, it's safe to say that I'm not satisfied!), all I know is that the next thing that I felt was agitation and a great urge to physically harm someone.
I tried to tell her that reading about the miseries of the world helps me understand more, it makes me aware, it's a way for me to feel for what people other than myself go through. Her response didn't only insult my intelligence, but it made me question hers. She told me that if I wanted to feel anything then I should want to feel horny and not sorry! That I should read something that would make me feel happy, because she believes that she has never seen me really happy! Then she went on coaching me on life and how I should be dealing with it!
Ughhhh, like seriously! I mean what makes you believe that you know me? What makes you feel that you know what's the best for me? And how come you think that learning in any way is bad? Why are people only concerned with being happy? What about other people's happiness (or lack of it in this case), isn't that important as well? What's happening to the universe!!
The funniest part was that she mentioned, as a part of her argument, that I'm talking about a lala land! LOL me dreaming of a lala land, how wrong is that?
