do you ever catch yourself doing something you promised yourself you'd never do?
i do. all the time.
like whistling along to songs when the musician is not whistling.
or getting angry at innocent store clerks.
or waiting at a party for someone to talk to me instead of talking to them first.
that last one, well, that one i do most often. it's a horrible habit. self-defeating, really. i justify it by thinking, "it's ok, i have lots of friends. i don't HAVE to talk to him/her."
my oft-times wise friend told me something the other day that squashes my argument.
"do it for them," he said.
yeah, i should. maybe i don't need another friend (which is a lie, in all honesty), but maybe they do.
maybe they do.
just something to think about. mostly for me, but something for you too.
