With a smile and a plastered on mask of self awareness, it feels like I am cheating and faking myself… Others may see me as a practical or logical person when in truth, I don’t even know what I am doing.
People see what they want to see. Oblivious to the fact that almost everyone has their own troubles. We blindly make assumptions about that person’s life or personality.
Generally speaking, society nowadays looks into visual appearances of people most of the time. First impression lasts, right? We first see the surface before diving in deeper. I, personally, always feel envious towards those people who could fit into society just fine. Which leads me to wonder, do they have something that troubles them? Are they always that confident and sophisticated?
When I am in the mall, or any place that is crowded, I often observe people and imagine what it’s like inside their mind. Are they really contented? Happy? Sad? Troubled? Do they have a dog? Oh, that person may be a cat lover.
Well, my point is… I actually don’t know. Haha. Kidding. I am guilty of making judgments towards others as much as the next person. The words “more that what meets the eye” came to me when I was lying in bed, waiting for sleepiness to visit me while looking at the ceiling. It was just a passing thought, but made me think, ah *starts-to-nod*, yeah, that make sense…
There’s always another POV of the story. Another side to a coin. Countless of pages to be flipped over after the book cover. And there’s more to a person than what he/she lets on.
P.S. Even this entry has a hidden part of it.
