History tends to repeat itself. On the surface everything seems tranquil. Everyone’s amicable now that they’ve got their minuscule share of the land. Some of the land’s already been divided and settled by the lawyer. But what’s startling to know is that there were more properties hidden by elders unknown to us. Personally, I don’t need it for I’ve got no intention of living with toxic individuals in the future. It’s also unwise to conduct business with them knowing how underhanded they can be. Nope, it’s not a worthwhile investment of money, effort, time and affection.
I’m distressed by the thought that some people choose peace and change their perceptions whenever they receive cash or properties. Is that human nature? Sorry to burst your bubbles but I am not one of those conniving individuals nor am I a naive girl that can easily be manipulated by smooth talks and poisoned gifts. I tend to foresee things far ahead based on one’s character and actions. At times, I let them think that they’ve gotten away with their deceptions. But somehow, I find it fun to watch people keeping up with their lies; I behold it in sheer astonishment on how far they can keep up with their facade.
I’ve already written these types out of the book of my life for a long time now and I’ve no intention of reconnecting: But I do know the meaning of remaining civil. Call me stone-hearted but I won’t care. A lifetime’s betrayal done at an early age; being besmirched for things I haven’t done is something I can never forgive nor forget. At a young age, I did my very best to live in the rules set so as not to tarnish my name and my family’s reputation. If I were to lead a life full of bliss, I have to stay away from certain individuals. Blood isn’t thicker than water after it has been thinned down by deceptions and betrayals.
Maybe I’m just overacting. But what scares me the most is that I know them all too well; I know how their mind works and how letting these sort of people into your life can lead to your eventual ruin. I’m thinking of my future. I don’t want negative individuals to have ties with my kids in the future (that’s if I’m going to be blessed to have one). Put yourself in my position and you’ll understand why I fret at these things. Avoidance is the key for me. But hey, you’re entitled to your own opinions and these opinions happened to be mine.
