“Show them you are interesting! And they’d automatically open up to you” or so I’ve been told.
Now what is this “interesting” factor in a person? How is somebody interesting to one and not so to the others? If we had the option of choosing, wouldn’t we all pick it? I mean who wants to be lonely all the time. It may be wrong of me to say so. I admit. Cause there’s nothing wrong in being by yourself, if you are comfortable with that. I just like to generalize and say that humans are social beings. Isolate one and you’d know.
What are the traits of a so-called person? Is it somebody who always has a say in a discussion? Is it someone who is carefree and acts fearlessly? But then again, doesn’t everyone have an opinion about matters. I think characterizing someone as “interesting” or not is a very invalid thing to do. It is a cliché, which has a LOT to do with social hierarchy. You may become really attached to a group of people in a jiffy. But if you don’t, no one is holding a sword over your head. There have been cases where people drift apart after spending ages together, which may sound horrific to some. But it’s all natural. After a while you may start to realize that you belong somewhere else. And it’s totally okay to feel like that. We are all unique the way we are and the fact that we are cordial, makes it all the more okay to experiment with multiple groups. Try and mingle with as many people as you can. The ones that stick around for longer are the ones you have formed a bond with. So then obviously you are wanted. Why else would you not be able to sleep peacefully with the constant buzzing of your messenger? 😀
I really wish people would reduce their narrow-mindedness regarding others. If you don’t know someone, you can’t judge. Period. Right to Speech and all taken into account, its better to not say anything rather than just make uninformed assumptions, right?
I don’t know if it’s an innate quality or if through the course of your life you become so. Maybe being interesting is not so significant, because after all, you have to be comfortable with who you are. Then why all the finger pointing? Sometimes you just want to shoot a person in the head and get it over with. Unfortunately life doesn’t work that way 😛
What, according to you, defines an interesting person? Or do you (like me) prefer to not term people in any such way? 🙂
