The musical show last night was a total hit! A very famous Sri Lankan band was on tour in Aus and they sang popular English, Spanish, Sinhalese, Hindi songs that rocked the night away. I was on my feet dancing all night long and managed to shake my weekend blues away. It made me realise that people who don't deserve my love and attention can go to hell...I'm not gonna let fakesters rule my state of mind. Yes, at first, we all get upset by so-called friends behaving like plastic. It hurts and I'm not gonna hide that. If it ain't hurting, it aint real. Trust me, if you have an answer for everything, if you try to make sense out of everything, if you're always chirpy and positive, if you always advise others but can't FEEL a thing, then you're living a LIE. I find alot of people like that both on the net and outside. They just seem to live in this pink bubble where they think they know everything, and that they are the best thing that ever happened to the world. In that illusion, they try to win everyone's love and appreciation, but fail to make one real FRIEND. When a friend is hurting, they brush it off saying 'o get over it, this is life'...but when it's their turn to hurt, that same friend is supposed to understand their feelings? It's called double standards. But one day that pink bubble is gonna burst. Anyways, I realised all of this over the weekend, and I also realised that Everything that glitters is not gold indeed. It's true to the core. Like this beautiful necklace I wore last night to the Show. It glitters so elegantly and exudes radiance and beauty. But it's not made of real Gold. It's just artificial. It looks Valuable on the outside...but is worthless on the inside. Looks Enigmatic on the outside...but is empty on the inside. Looks Shining on the outside...but is dull on the inside.
People can be like that too. They can be present in your life, but without a 'presence'.
No matter what I aint gonna stop my music and my dancing. I aint gonna let their existence of a mirage make me a mirage too. And a big THANK YOU to those who understood how I felt in the last post, and for just being there without giving me one big lecture on life and how it should be. It's always better to be a FRIEND than be RIGHT all the time. Happy week ahead guys. Come on, shake your body baby, do that Conga! I danced to this number last night like a maniac...as if the dance-bug bit my bootaaay! ;-)
