Something Kalinka commented on in my previous post brough this song to mind.
How often do we yearn for somebody else’s life, without any thought as to that person’s reasoning?
I, myself, have looked at couples, and thought to myself – “Now there’s a life I could be happy with.”
But I don’t know what happens behind closed doors, do I?
I have not walked in those people’s shoes, I don’t know what makes them happy, or sad..
I KNOW there are females out there that envy my my freedom.
The fact that I can, and have, dated a different man every night for weeks.
They think me brave for going out there and looking for somebody to share my life with.
What they don’t know is the emptyness of these endeavours.
The same demands from different people – so much so that they become just one big blur, with no remarkable features.
Just another man in a long string of them, promising the moon and delivering only emptiness.
I’ve stopped envying people their seemingly good lives.
I am doing my best to concentrate on the things I don’t like in my own life – and at the moment, I have to admit, it’s just a job.
I don’t need to be flattered anymore, dont’ need a man to tell me I’m gorgeous or hot or whatever.
The only thing I want to change in my life at this point in time would be unemployment.
Everything else is just the way it needs to be.
Look to other people – get ideas from them.
Never envy them – you know not what they had to go through to get where they are.
And maybe are still going through…
