Adult Life.

This is a bit more of a serious and mature post compared to the rest of the posts on here so far. If you're not a fan of real talk, then you're welcome to skip this post, I won't be offended. It's just something I wanted to write about whilst I'm in the right mindset. Also, as a little disclaimer, I'm not badmouthing anyone here, it's just a little bit of an epiphany and a teeny, tiny bit of a  rant. As I'm getting older, I'm starting to see just how things really are. How much people kept hidden from you when you were younger, what you really meant to them and so forth. And realising it, really isn't nice. I feel a little bit... Betrayed? Is that the right word? I'm not sure. Some might say it's just how I'm feeling right now (perhaps a little miffed off and annoyed) and I'm saying it's like this because of that, but it's genuinely not just because I'm feeling negative. It's because some people genuinely kept me in their life so that they could look down on me and always be better and do better, so that they could feel more positive about themselves. And I've only just realised this. That sort of thing isn't nice. Friends are meant to build each other up and focus on the other person's positives, to help them shine with those qualities and to become a better person. Not say bad things about them and nit-pick at the negatives in their life, focusing solely on them, to bring them down, just to make their own life look shinier and brighter. Am I wrong? Maybe it's just the morals that I have, but I haven't got time for people that do that. I want to be around people that are happy, who will help me become a better person by helping my good qualities to shine through, people that I can have a laugh with and share my worries with, without the worry that they're going to use these against me to bring me down whenever they need a pick-me-up. I think people nowadays have the overwhelming urge to bring others down, because it'll make them look and feel better. The way I see it is; putting someone else's flame out, doesn't mean yours will shine any bigger or brighter. I just think some people forget this, and I'm no longer at that age where I will tolerate people just keeping me in their lives just to put my candle out.

Does anyone else feel like they're reaching this stage in their life, or have anything to add? Or do you have something else that you've realised as you're getting older? I'd love to see what you think, so pop them in the comments. :)
