Being accepted by my peers was everything during my adolescence.
I basically would do ANYTHING to get invited to anything kind of event that they have planned.
However as you mature (By identifying the lessons ALLAH s.w.t wants you to learn), you grow out of that desire to be accepted by a certain type of people.
In the past, I would get offended when I was not invited to special occasions or any form of get-togethers.
It affected me quite a bit.
When that sort of situation arises, you either move on or get depressed!
I chose to move on.
I have learnt to accept that life still go on.
Yeah, it feels horrible not being part of DA group – DA group whom you thought were your friends but it’s okay.
It’s okay because now I realize that there are far better individuals who care about me as much as I treasure them – and even more.
Yeah, it took me ages to come to that conclusion but the realization has been made clear to me now.
Yes, looks ARE definitely deceiving.
Those who (only) looked like they cared but in reality, they don’t give a s**t about me
However, those who seemed like they couldn’t care less actually took the initiative to be concerned about my feelings.
Thanks Imran for that invitation. I truly appreciate that. It was indeed extremely shweeeeeeet of you.
So jolly people of the world, it’s okay if you are not exactly as popular or well liked as you thought you were.
Like the saying goes, s**t happens to good people.
