A Damn Thing

Some say that the best ones always get as much as they give. If this is true, I guess I'm not giving a damn thing.

Some people, instead, give too much. As they need too much.
But this won't do. They won't get more because of their altruistic behaviour. In fact, I believe exactly the opposite.
Thanks to their instinct, most people can feel that you lack something in your life and that's why they'll stay right away from you. It's as if you are asking them too much. Even unwillingly.
Or, and that's the bad news, they'll take all that they can from you. Then they'll leave you down and in the end you'll feel a great void.

No, it's not that pessimistic. Just a slice.

But hey, honey, if no one's looking for you and you're more alone than with other people, start asking yourself why. Don't always just complain about others not being as sensitive as you. Maybe you're not such a pleasurable company. Too bad.

You made me think:
"Or maybe it's just that you're on the wrong side ... So change surroundings and stop blaming yourself for not being nice or interesting. Just be where you have to be instead of watching things from the window."

You know? These are exactly the same words my conscience has been trying to tell me since a long time.
But my instinct still blocks me.
Jeeeez! :D

Thinking about the thinks that you have wrote, lately I talk with myself I told myself: "I know the answer, I know what I need...", but unfortunately I don't know how to catch it.
In my way of think, happiness and peacefulness mixed together are the magics that give two wonderful wings to our Soul. To give us the real sense of Life: an endless dance in the sky.
Nothing, for me, is more difficult.

Have a nice evening Yuki!!

I know it's really difficult. But not impossible, Mio.
I go up and down, each day. But I keep searching for my slice of happiness.

I believe you can make it!!! Don't stop trying. IT'S AN ORDER!!! :D

Have a nice evening, too.

P.S. = yeah, he's great, I agree...
