I completely lost my thread. 😦
I went to answer the comments on the blog and my post title disappeared from my mind. This one is the closest approximation but the really good one is missing.
Maybe it will come to me in sleep. 🙂
Anyway, I had a sort of epiphany today (and the usual place where those happen is bathroom). 🙂
It doesn’t matter what the precise subject was, let me just say it was on relationships (the opposite sex ones) and I realized that the older I am, some things seem to fall into place and I understand those types of relationships better (in this case mine). I also seem to give my partner more understanding for things that would drive me up the wall before.
I’m happy for myself and the feeling that I’m growing as a person. Giving someone else the benefit of a doubt or even, trying to put yourself in their position seems to be nowadays a lost art. Ok, maybe not lost, but not really practised a lot (so, on the road to extinction).
I know I’m far from perfect but I also know I want to be a better person. I want to feel happy and at ease with myself, knowing I didn’t do any harm to anyone (intentionally).
At the same time, I’m aware that will not always be possible and people will refuse to listen and hear.
But hey, we do live in an un-perfect world.
Would it be perfect if we all strived to better ourselves? And as optimistic as I am, I don’t really think that will ever be possible. But we could all strive to be better and grow as people.
Eventually the world would be such a better place for our children.
P.S. I don’t want to delete my post, but it feels like meanderings without any goal. 🙂
It also feels like I’m following the footsteps of famous Croatian writers, finding inspiration in wine. 🙂
