It Never Ends

Wherever you go, wherever they’re from and whatever they look like, people are pretty much the same wherever you go, especially when it  comes to things like trust, honesty and heated conflicts.

Trust because there are only a few people you’ll ever meet that you can actually trust. 
Unfortunately, a lot of people put too much trust in people who aren’t as reliable as they may think, meaning they tend to find this out the hard way. On top of that, it’s not necessarily in the nicest way; it’s not unusual for many to get hurt in the process.

Honesty because people will always lie to you.
There are so many two faced people out there where lying is a second nature to them. What’s sad about it is that at times people can put more trust into the liars rather than those few who are telling the truth. By the time people may realise this it’s probably too late, as by then, the liars may have somehow twisted and manipulated you.

Conflict because it tends to be the outcome of the two things mentioned above
Conflicts commonly spur from a lack of trust or honestly in between people. Though mainly verbal, they can sometimes get physical or more damaging [mentally or physically] as people get older.

Such conflicts are usually associated with high school. However when it comes to the work place, things aren’t that different.
While
many would think that people would grow out of it once becoming an adult, many simply don’t. They remain as the cold, bitter bitchy people that they were in high school and college who still form cliques and single out individuals they don’t like for whatever reason. They continue to bully, abuse and harass those who simply don’t deserve it.

So how can this be avoided?  That’s the issue it can’t. Wherever you go there will always be someone who has an of issue with you or someone you many know. While you may not be able to always get away from them, you don’t have to put up with it.

So He Smoked Weed…

Not so long after his achievement at the Beijing Olympics w/ 8 gold medals, this picture of Michael Phelps surfaced into the tabloids. It showed him smoking weed in a bong. It lead to a lot of controversy…you know people saying it was wrong, it’s illegal, he shouldn’t have done it, stuff like that…

What I don’t understand is why there are people out there who made it out to be such a big deal. I personally couldn’t care less about what Michael Phelps does or has done in his personal life because it’s his business. He [may have been] in the situation where it was offered to him. He’s human he has every right to try it if he wants to. Michael seems like a smart man, meaning he probably knows the risks of smoking it.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that it’s ok to smoke weed, I’m saying that it’s something that a lot of people do or have tried, so Michael shouldn’t be so heavily criticized for it just because he’s famous. He wasn’t the first and definitely won’t be the last person to smoke it.

Marijuana is a Class B drug. While it’s still a drug, it’s not the worst kind he could’ve been doing. There are celebrities [and maybe some athletes] out there who smoke crack, inject themselves with heroin, swallow ecstasy and snort cocaine (if not all four) as well as other things; so the people out there criticizing Michael for doing some weed should be doing the same to all those other celebrities doing worse.

He apologized for doing it, but in a way…I don’t think he should’ve. By saying sorry he’s only apologizing for making a mistake. While it’s good that he recognized he shouldn’t have done it, he was a college student at the time. College students always get up to stupid things at partys. Not just the ones at college, but everywhere else too…so why should Michael be ridiculed for his mistakes?

I understand that there are people who look up to him as an athlete, but think of it this way. The same thing if not worse could of been done by all the other “role models” out there, you just don’t know about it. The man’s only human give him a break!! I think that this picture only got out because someone he knew tried to make tons of money out of it and potentially ruin the man’s career. He may have succeeded in the money part…but Michael is still an Olympic gold medalist [14 to be exact] who holds 7 world records in swimming…shows you who your true friends are doesn’t it?

I’m going to end this with a quote:

Let he who is without sin cast the first stone

So if you can honestly say that you’ve made no mistakes or stupid decisions before, feel free to “cast all the stones” you want. Until then, leave people like Michael alone.

Do We Trust People TOO Much? (originally written on 11th November 2008)

It seems that quite a few people out there open up to people a bit too much, especially when it comes to their friends… some of these friends might not even truthfully like us, they might act one way with you and be completely different with others…

It’s these kinda people that should be looked out for, as they’re the sneaky ones who probably talk about you the most; they’re the ones who won’t stop until they find your weakness or one of your insecurities, and when things go wrong, they’ll use that against you as they’ll know it will hurt you. To be frank, how long you’ve known or haven’t known a person has nothing to do with how much you can trust them. I can think of quite a few people who are “BFFs” or whatever you want to call it with someone, and that someone talks about that other friend behind their back as if they even hated them =S.

I don’t know about you but I’ve experienced this distrust thing…too many times. I’ve known people who I thought I could trust and they did nothing but betray that. I even had one of those “best friends” that I’d known since I was about 4…but based on the subject of this article, you can kinda guess what happened between me and them. Even after that happened, I still trusted people too much, I opened up to them unnecessarily and I told them TOO much personally… and while not all of them did this, some of them chose to use it against me later on.
Hopefully, now I’ve learned from my mistakes, now I’m just going to trust that small handful of people and no more than that; as far as I know, others I don’t know that well will just use my trust to their advantage and stab me in the back at any moment…

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that people shouldn’t open up to anyone, and I hope I don’t sound paranoid when I say this, but people should choose who they trust wisely and be more careful…because we never know what some of our friends could be saying about us when we’re not around, meaning that we might not really be sure on which one of those friends are genuine and true…and not just another lying deceitful backstabber =/.
