Let's all play the game

Sitting in a tea shop, trying to write a rough draft for my class tomorrow, I have just realized how easy it could be to feel utterly alone despite being trapped on an island with 8 million other people. And although I now understand how it can happen, I do not feel alone. Quite the opposite, the more I'm surrounded by people the more I feel connected with the world. Which gets me to thinking. The only way to counteract that potential for utter desperation is to stop being so self-centered.

If you are so arrogant as to think that your presence alone doesn’t effect the people around you, then you need to get your head out of your ass. I tell you this: YOU ARE NOT INVISIBLE. Surprise! You’re NOT a super-hero! Yes people can and do see you, and you know what if you weren’t so focused on yourself all the time then you might actually notice this for yourself. Hundreds if not thousands of people look at you everyday, are you looking at them? Are you really? If you aren’t even willing to see them, then what right do you have to expect them to see you?

The most attractive people are the ones who are the most interested…interested in life, the world, and everything. The more interested you are, the more interesting you will be. Join the team, play the game, and try and have some fun.
