Odds and Ends

The answer doesn’t have to be long and complicated.

It’s actually quite simple.

The manner of talking is what makes or breaks.

 

People like to believe they can read you.  

Never believe anyone who insists they know what’s inside of you.

Only you can accurately define what you are feeling, no one else.

 

Sometimes people aren’t in the mood.

When this happens, be prepared.

Remember, you know better and one’s meanness is hardly ever about you.

 

“Listen to the music behind the words.”

Sometimes, it’s not literally the question asked, rather it’s a way to engage in small talk.

Especially when you’re trying to break the tension.

 

Trust your instincts.

However reasonable the intentions may be.

If it doesn’t make you feel at ease, then something is surely off.
