F.R.I.E.N.D.S are like this

Continued from the previous post:  Don't use the P-words

Chapter three: Your F.R.I.E.N.D.S are like this!

Say you are going through a bad phase and you have a few problems in life. You pour out your problems to your trusted good friend and she (or he) nonchalantly reassures you, “Don’t worry, everything's going to be fine”? Have you ever wondered how your friend knows that it is going to be fine? What if it is never going to be fine? What if it gets worse and worse and worse for the rest of your life and then you die?

Of course your friend does not think through all this before confidently prophesizing that everything is going to be “fine”. If you question their self-fulfilling prophecy, she (or he) will accuse you of being negative and pessimistic! They might also give you a half glass full of crappy optimistic shit to pep you up. In this scenario, your friend is just being politically correct!

When people (friends are people too) are not interested in your problems they tend say stuff like “be positive”, “don’t worry”, “everything’s going be fineet cetera etc. and trust me, they say this only because they are not sincerely interested in your problems. It’s an open secret. We are all part of the hypocrisy. My friends do it to me and I do it to my friends. I am sure your friends do it all the time and so do you.

bursting the bubble feels good sometimes
If you do not agree with my observation, I really hate to burst the bubble for you sweetheart (or random dude, if you are male) but the reality is that
Truth is bitter
Your friends are like that
People are selfish
Everything is getting worse
There is no such thing as a reasonable woman
All reality TV is staged
"Free and fair elections" is a joke
The system is rigged
Life’s not fair and
God doesn’t care
I know the whole theory is very depressing and hard to digest but “hey, be positive because everything’s going to be just fine”. :p :p :p.

Edit: Just adding to the above observations, I feel that people who are bad listeners tend to do this more than people who are good listeners... Its one of those after thoughts

  1. Plus,during hard times you don't want to be further depressed by negativity or practicality of things.Friends aren't trying to delude your perspective of life by convincing you that all is well but are merely trying to comfort you when you need it the most.The paper work can then be handled by the more practical and improved "future you".:)
