So you think you’re better than me?

It can be great to have a best friend. Someone who is like your other half, and someone you can really identify with, but i think it can be dangerous to identify too much with your friends. I know, that for some people it can get to a level where you see everything as a competition between yourself and your friends.
When I describe it like this, it really sound like I say that this wouldn’t be a pretty good friendship, but sometimes I see myself like this kind of person too, I have to admit that. It’s not very satisfying always being compared to others, to be the second best and to be the second choice. Never the less, people will always compare you to others, and mostly it will be the people close to you, which isn’t good, but it’s also impossible to avoid. There wouldn’t be any good without bad, so you can’t really blame anyone for this. You can just be yourself and hope for acceptance. Namaste.

Promises

When you are in a relationship, you have made a promise to each other about only being with eachother and no one else, but if one suddenly wanted to be with someone else, the other part would have absolutely no right to say no to his/her partner. Isn’t it weird that we make theese promises and deals that don’t really count for us anyway? Well, of course they count, but they are often being broken. Just look at all the people who are getting divorced, maybe it went so wrong for them because they promised each other too much. Someone once told me, that you should never promise another person more than you were absolutely sure you could live up too, and i really believe that.

Is marriage romantic or stupid?

I had a teacher last year who said that he thought it was stupid to get married, because you shouldn’t go around and promise people big things that you cant live up to. Like, you would never promise a friend “till death do us part”.
I have thought about this so many times since. I am a big romantic, but what he said actually made a lot of sence to me. But do some people really leave each other because of promises that are too big, like my teacher made it sound like? Well…At least that i what i think he made it sound like.

And now i make it sound like you can’t be romantic if you aren’t a big fan of marriage, but of course that’s not true.

Scary goodbyes

Im 17 years old, and i’m in a place in my life where everyone i know will soon move on in alot of different directions. Maybe someone will move to a bigger town to find better education oppertunities, or maybe some will travel.

Until a short while ago i had never thought about it, but then a friend of mine mentioned it, and now i find it pretty scary. It is dangerous to fall in love at this point in life, you could find someone and have the most amazing 6 months in your life, but then on the other side, it would hurt just as much when you had to say goodbye. Would it be worth it?
