I'm finally getting a chance to sit down at my computer for the week and I realize its been 4 days since my last post. This is unacceptable. Though I've been crazy, life isn't always that eventful.
I've learned quite a few things about myself this week one of which may be valuable to others...
Avoid the Light Dimmer
My friend and I are somewhat freshly out of longterm relationships. somewhat. While having met for drinks and doing some major catching up she paid me a very nice compliment and clued me into some valuable insight.
There are certain people who walk into a room and light it up. It can be any room. People are naturally drawn to them regardless of the situation. She said I was one of these people. Thank you, I said.
Then there are people who contribute to the light when around these people and there are those who don't. Those people that don't contribute, don't necessarily not care, but they feel an unnecessary threat. The threat being unnecessary bc the 'light' doesn't even realize they are competing for anything. They are just existing like any other person. So the light dimmers can't help but turn it down some. For whatever subconscious reason it is. Kind of like raining on your parade. They'll shoot an underhanded compliment when you're feeling good.
They don't hinder you but they don't support you either.
