Oh Lord! I have no idea what is happening to me. My ego-maniac friend also happens to be very influential or as we call it contagious. In a bad way. I’m becoming like her, and i really don’t want to. I don’t even remember who i am or what i want. I have this friend who is constantly asking me not to change because he loves me the way i am. And i do too. I don’t want to become a self-centered ego-maniac. But at the same time I can’t help it. I spend my whole day with her, she’s gotta have some effect on me. Oh Lord please save me 😦
Attitude. Some of us have it and some of us don’t. I have a friend who does. She is an ego-maniac you could say. Attitude is not really a bad thing, sometimes it keeps you from crossing limits, people respect you. Having a small bit of attitude can’t be so bad because at times it is what reminds you and people around you what you are and what your limits are. But, there is a thin line between having an attitude for the good of it and being rude, self-centered and an ego-manic. Apparently, my friend seems to be crossing that. Before, her attitude didn’t seem to bother us much. In fact it was hardly there and the most she would do was ignore the people who would bother her too much. But lately it has become too much. She has started ignoring us too. All she thinks is about herself. Maybe I’m judging her and she’s going through some hard times that I don’t know of. But hey, there is a limit to everything. She is always in a bad mood. When she isn’t everything is cool and awesome. We can do anything. But if she is then everybody around her is a loser and everything we do makes us a looser. She treat all the boys like dogs. She ignores them for no reason. I mean yes i agree boys can be dogs sometimes but that doesn’t give her a right to be a bitch with them. Even they’re human and they have hearts too. So here we tried to talk to her, explain things to her that what she does is wrong. We may have spent a whole day trying to talk to her, but in the end it was no use. All that shit we said just passed over her head. With this attitude of hers, she is not only hurting the people around her but also herself. Pretty soon people might not even want to talk to her.
And to those who do have attitudes, i have one question for you, Why? Why do you have an attitude? Who are you to ignore other people? What do you have that makes you superior to others? What do you have that makes you so special? Money? Looks? Well if these are the things that define who you are then let me ask you something, one day when these things are no more, then who would you be? Because as we all know these things don’t last. As Erich Fromm once put it, “If I am what I have and if I lose what I have who then am I?” Ponder over this and think who are you? Do you really have a right to make other feel inferior to you?
